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.

As the geospatial community has been buzzing about 3D analysis for the past decade, another form of enhanced analysis has flown under the radar: analysis in the fourth dimension, time. Advances in computing, increased access to large historical data archives, and the introduction of sensors with rapid revisitation cycles have all helped open the door for analysis that not only asks the question of where, but also when. Time series analysis of historical data can provide a clearer picture of current conditions, and rapid data collection rates allow us to watch and react to business-changing events, like severe insect outbreaks, as they unfold. Old data is now answering new questions while new data is answering old questions. The science of converting large volumes of data into actionable intelligence has been growing, allowing us to leverage the new world of big data with fascinating results. In this presentation, we look at some of the data and technologies that are allowing these advances to take place, and provide some examples of how these advances are being applied to answer real world questions.
