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.

Carl Zimmerman*, Ph.D., Westcog

Regional and metropolitan planning agencies have traditionally used decennial data sets from the U.S. Census Bureau, traffic counts, and single-car GPS to understand and facilitate transportation and urban planning research. These data sets, while extremely useful and widely disseminated, are comparatively coarse. Inadequate spatial and temporal resolutions limit modeling, map creation, and analysis. In this presentation, attendees will learn about several innovative data sets including the National Performance Management Research Data Set (NPMRDS) vehicle speed data, Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics (LODES) employment data sets, and social media feeds that allow for innovative modeling. A brief case study will demonstrate how to process and analyze the very large NPMRDS data sets.
