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.

Burns & McDonnell has introduced Drone Technology to help streamline multiple workflows and reduce costs for monitoring and data gathering. The introduction of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) is a cost effective method to effectively create project base mapping, monitor construction status, safety, compliance, equipment and labor, schedule and ultimately: cost. The incorporation of this information into cost management and project controls workflows affords the ability to more accurately document status and progress as well as predict and project schedule, procurement and invoicing. This new technology in conjunction with mobile field data collection, high accuracy ground control, and a GIS project dashboard create a full transparent view of a project at any given point. From the planning stages, to permitting, construction, as-built, and operations and maintenance; UAV’s and GIS support are playing an ever increasing role in large scale projects and how cost engineering is impacted.
