Chattanooga GIG City: Players in the Local Economy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Chattanooga is the first city in the Western Hemisphere to offer 10-gigabit-per-second fiber internet service to all residents and businesses. At hundreds of times the speed of the national average, the Gig opens the door to unimagined ways of learning, playing and conducting business. We definitely appreciate the internet speed during the conference!

During the morning's keynote address, we'll hear from Andrew Rodgers of Chattanooga's Enterprise Center. Strong innovation economies are typically anchored by well established institutions such as Research Universities, National Labs, or Commercial Research Parks. Learn how Chattanooga has utilized unconventional institutions and regional assets to launch a burgeoning innovation ecosystem, anchored by intentional placemaking and a strong sense of community. 

Then, Scott Fiedler from the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), will give an overview of the TVA’s history and role in the southeast region.  TVA is a corporate agency of the United States that provides electricity for business customers and local power distributors serving 9 million people in parts of seven southeastern states.  Established in 1933, TVA also provides flood control, navigation, and land management for the Tennessee River system and assists local power companies and states and local governments with economic development. Learn more about this unique federal corporation!

I like making sense of complicated CAMA data and teaching others. My goal is to understand complex CAMA data relationships, to create efficient and repeatable data mining processes for large CAMA datasets with new products for our Assessor's Office, and to use GIS as a tool for better understanding the spatial meaning and patterns within our CAMA data.
