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.

What are the tools used to measure the performance, usability and value of your GIS system? This panel will discuss the types of measures that indicate systems are functioning as designed, used as intended and performing at its peak. There are many tools used to measure system performance and different elements of the system that require monitoring such as server operating system, relational databases, GIS Servers, Web Servers, ArcGIS Online and web traffic are just a few of the elements that should be monitored not only to troubleshooting issues and fine tuning performance but also provide usage statistics. From the simple to the sophisticated, the tools are used to inform IT/GIS administrators their systems are functioning properly but also can provide reportable levels of activity to upper management. It’s within the activity usage that the value of the system can be evaluated. How do you measure usage? How do you determine the value of your GIS system? The panel will discuss the tools and techniques used in their positions but also engage the audience to share their experiences with measuring their success.
