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.

GIS for Asset Management

Rick Martens, James W. Sewall Company

Managing assets such as stormwater/water/wastewater systems, roads and facilities within a community is becoming an increasingly important task for municipalities. However, communities are discouraged when presented with the costs and time required for incorporation of asset management systems within their business processes. Without an accurate inventory system to track and manage assets, it can be difficult to mitigate potential costly and sometimes life-threatening impacts to infrastructure. This presentation will identify the key components of an asset management system and how communities can utilize a Geographic Information System (GIS) as a starting point for effective asset management. GIS is a primary tool that can build the inventory database required for asset management. From this database, other GIS tools can be utilized to analyze, inspect and report on asset condition and potential system risk. The presentation will also cover how GIS can replace current asset inventory and inspection strategies with more efficient methods, reducing time to perform tasks.
