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.

Participants in this presentation will learn about how an environmental science magnet school in Hartford, CT designed and successfully implemented an environmental studies course focusing on Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The presenters will provide tips and suggestions on how to successfully incorporate Esri's ArcGIS Online program into the secondary school (6-12) classroom. Participants will also gain access to sample lessons and resources that can be used when writing a course in GIS for their local middle or high school.
