Explore an Interactive Map of the California High Speed Rail Project!
July 29, 2014
The SGC has coordinated volunteer efforts by the University of California, Davis and the ESRI Corporation to tell the California High Speed Rail story in a short graphic format called a Story Map. Clicking around on various highlighted features of the map and selecting different periods in time between the present and 2028 reveals key facts about the system, its features, its costs, the costs of alternatives, and the railroads value to California’s economy. The California High Speed Rail story is a story about America’s largest current infrastructure project. It is bound to be complex but the StoryMap makes it more accessible. You can explore the Story Map here
