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.

Dan Walters, National Map Liaison for Massachusetts, Maine and Rhode Island

The USGS National Geospatial Program, the USGS Office of Water Information, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service have begun a study to identify and understand user requirements, and the associated benefits, for improved hydrographic data. An online questionnaire was provided to 33 Federal agencies and representative users in all 50 States including State, local, and tribal governments, non-profits, academia, and the private sector. In the initial response, these users identified 595 Mission Critical Activities that benefited from hydrographic data, including applications ranging from water-quality monitoring to real estate, and from rangeland management to urban planning. This presentation will review HRBS and present preliminary results for New Engand.
