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.

Python, Unwieldy Data, and Your Geoprocessing Sanity

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Jason Wise, Terracon

Does this sound familiar? You need to process a lot of data, or you need to run the same process repeatedly. You build geoprocessing models to make things easier, but then the models become as complex and unwieldy as your data, or they don't quite do what you need. You turn to Python scripting to improve your geoprocessing, and pretty soon you have complex and unwieldy Python code. Then you try ArcGIS Pro and discover that your scripts no longer work. Learn how you can improve your geoprocessing sanity by taking an object-oriented approach to Python programming. Make your code easier to understand, reuse, and maintain. We'll also discuss scripting versus models, Python toolboxes versus regular toolboxes, publishing geoprocessing services, and the different versions of Python (2.7 and 3.4) that different Esri products use. Bring your own laptop!  Space is limited. Sign up at the Conference Registration Desk.
