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.

Jim Wysor, The Metropolitan District

The Metropolitan District Commission (MDC) is a regional water and sewer company that maintains 1,365 miles of sanitary sewer mains and 1,578 miles of water mains. With this much infrastructure, it is inevitable that repairs will be needed. When a repair occurs, the street and/or a sidewalk needs to be cut so crews can access the pipe or fitting. The cut can be an inconvenience and an eye sore for a property owner as well as make for a less than smooth driving experience on roads. With repairs constantly being made, there are a large number of paving cuts that must be tracked and managed. The MDC is using ArcGIS Online to manage this work. Prior to this, paving cuts were managed by hand using paper forms and maps that resulted in cuts being forgotten, difficulties tracking work progress and a tedious and time consuming management process. By embracing ArcGIS Online, the MDC can now track the progress of paving cut work in near real time, allow contractors to update their schedule in a timely fashion and allow others in the organization to view the status of any paving cut at any time leading to better customer service.
