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.

Douglas Greenfield, City of Newton, MA

Like many towns and cities, Newton, Massachusetts has been using a paper-based Zoning map for decades. This set of maps is torn, faded, incomplete and unreadable in places. To see a property's official zoning requires a look at several map sheets in combination with a list of ordinances. City staff scanned all the maps, went through all zoning ordinances and constructed a GIS data layer that can now be considered the official zoning map of the city. The technical and legal challenges and steps to implementation will be discussed.
