Welcome to the technical sessions schedule for the 2015 Annual Fall NEARC Conference. 

NEW THIS YEAR!
 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.

National Hydrography Dataset Analysis in StreamStats

Pete Steeves, GIS Specialist- USGS

StreamStats (http://streamstats.usgs.gov) is a U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Web-based geographic information systems application developed as a tool for water-resources planning and management, engineering design, and numerous other applications. For several years, StreamStats has showcased some of the more advanced capabilities of the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) in Version 2, including a variety of tools related to tracing the stream network upstream and downstream to search for and query “point events” (important point locations on the network), such as water quality measurement locations, dams, and gages. Several of these tools were needed for specific StreamStats analyses, such as the tool to Estimate Flows Based on Similar Streamgaging Stations. Other tools within StreamStats (Version 2) showcase additional NHD network navigation functionality, which helps to educate StreamStats users about how the NHD can be utilized for hydrologic analysis. Recently, StreamStats was upgraded to a new version (3). This upgrade, and subsequent upgrades, will allow these tools to be explored and expanded upon further. This presentation will discuss the long-time NHD tool functionality in StreamStats, the upgrading of these tools, and plans moving forward.
