NEARC Fall 2015 has ended

Welcome to the technical sessions schedule for the 2015 Annual Fall NEARC Conference. 

 The technical schedule is capable of being sorted by date (i.e, Monday, Nov. 9) or track (i.e. USGS Hydro). You can also search for a presentation title (i.e. Harmonizing the NHD and WBD Datasets in Maine), key term (i.e. NHD), or presenter last name (i.e. O’Neil-Dunne). The sort and search functions can be found on the navigation panel on the right side of this page. If you hover over the "Schedule" button, you’ll also see different schedule view options (i.e. Grid or Simple). Try selecting each of them to see which view you prefer. 

MY SCHEDULE FEATURE: It is not required of you to create a Sched.org account to use this site but if you do so, you’ll be able to use the "My Schedule" feature which allows you to create your own schedule for the conference. Click the "Sign Up" button in the top right corner of this page to create a Sched.org account.

Preparing LiDAR for ArcGIS Using the Point Data Abstraction Library (PDAL)

Over the past 10 years we have seen a large increase in the amount of LIDAR data available in the Northeast.  These data are often provided in the form of LAS files.  In this presentation I will introduce the Point Data Abstraction Library (PDAL).  I will discuss how this library can be used for merging and clipping LAS files.  I will also demonstrate how to colorize LAS files from associated aerial photography as either true color or false color infrared.  I will then display these colorized LAS files as LAS Datasets using ArcScene in ArcGIS.  In conclusion, I will highlight additional functionality of PDAL and how to create a clip polygon in the required format.

I enjoy using GIS to solve problems and I continue to search for effective ways to use geospatial data to help us. I am interested in TensorFlow machine learning, LiDAR data processing, and 3D visualization of geospatial data.
