He presented a paper on the institute's statewide freight modeling effort at the Transportation Research Board's Strategic Highway Research Program Symposium in Washington, D.C., Oct. 21-22. Lee's paper, "Statewide Freight Demand Modeling to Support Long-Range Transportation Planning in North Dakota," was one of only 18 chosen for the symposium which focused on strategies for integrating supply-chain models and data into public-sector freight demand modeling.

Lee presented, "Where Is the Next Drilling Location" at the GIS-Pro Annual Conference held by the Urban and Regional Information System Association (URISA) at Providence, RI, Sept. 16-19. URISA is a national association for geographic information systems (GIS) professionals. His paper described a method for predicting potential drilling sites in oil-producing regions for the next 20 years, a critical step in transportation planning for those regions.
