GIS Team Leader, Rail Baltica, Latvia
Vaidas Ulenskas is a GIS Team Leader at RB Rail AS. He graduated from Vilnius Gediminas Technical University (Vilnius Tech) in 2011 with M.Sc. degree in Civil Engineering. After 8 years of activities in urban planning, where he applied ArcGIS for data analysis and public awareness, he joined Rail Baltica in 2019 meeting the new challenge - to lead GIS developments in the largest greenfield high speed rail transport infrastructure megaproject in Baltic states. Vaidas and his colleagues established the GIS infrastructure based on ArcGIS products from scratch. Within 4 years, he assembled the solid GIS team, while the role of GIS in the project has changed dramatically - it turned into main source of information and the backbone of the currently developing Rail Baltica Digital Twin. Vaidas is a constant presenter in various GIS conferences at national and World level (e.g.- North American GIS Rail Summit 2021, 2022 European Rail GIS Summit etc.) sharing his knowledge and experience about the faced challenges, issues and achievements implementing ArcGIS in the megaproject.
