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.

Development of energy projects in Vermont is surging. Check out the news or take a drive around the state and you’ll see the evidence: new solar farms, wind turbines, manure digesters, wind turbines, electric transmission upgrades, and natural gas pipeline expansions. This presentation will cover the many ways in which GIS technology is being used to facilitate the efficient development of energy projects, including project site selection and screening, site assessment, project data management, project permitting, and permit compliance. Three examples of how GIS has been used through the project lifecycle will be presented: the selection and development of a 1.5 MW solar farm project, a 63 MW wind farm project, and a natural gas pipeline expansion. The presentation will demonstrate how the scalability and manifold capability of GIS offered distinct strategic advantages for each of these projects and was a key ingredient for their success.
