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.

The Pequonnock River Trail is a 16 mile multi-use trail that connects Monroe, Trumbull and Bridgeport, CT. For the trail, two products were created; a static “paper” map for handouts as well as a dynamic Esri Story Map for a more in-depth view online as well as use on mobile devices. This presentation will detail the dual processes of developing two maps in two different formats designed to display the same information. The static “paper” was designed to display as much information as possible at the 8.5” X 11” size. Adobe Illustrator was utilized to create highly stylized cartography that made the map more legible as well as branded the product. We will discuss the methods we used to design and export the map in ArcGIS for easiest use in Adobe Illustrator. For the dynamic Story Map, we will discuss how, with little previous experience, we successfully configured and deployed the application. In addition, we will highlight how the Story Map was formatted to tie in with the PequonnockRiverTrail.org website as well as the static “paper” map.
