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 an organization that focuses on regional transportation, the Connecticut Metropolitan Council of Governments has a long history of dealing with cumbersome transportation products. Whether produced at the local, state or federal level, these products can often be poorly organized and confusing to work with. This year we took a look at our internal transportation data and began incorporating some products in ArcGIS. In particular, this presentation will describe the conversion of a Traffic Signal Evaluation and Management Study from the early 2000’s from its custom Access 97 database to a file geodatabase that is now user friendly but can be used with ArcGIS Collector for in-field inspections. In addition, we will showcase how we converted and transformed various state and federal transportation mapping products into easier to use GIS data.
