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.

Jessica Valenti, University of Massachusetts Lowell; Peter Brigham, University of Massachusetts Lowell

A look at the development of a GIS Master Plan and what we've done over the course of the last year. In the fall of 2014 the University of Massachusetts Lowell set out to create a Facilities Information System/GIS Master Plan. A living document that would set the foundation for how we would proceed with the implementation of an enterprise GIS system. The first half of the presentation will show how we worked with our consultant, PenBay Solutions, to engage campus stakeholders, develop priorities, and, in particular, how we got buy-in and support. We will then look at where the University is now, 12 months later with respect to the identified priorities and roadmap. Sharing examples of our work with Campus Safety, Operations, Capital Projects, Parking & Transportation, Planning,and IT.
