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.

Jamie Gaynor* (Terracon), Jason Wise (Terracon)

The political and regulatory landscape surrounding infrastructure projects is often dynamic and unruly, yet the natural landscape that influences project feasibility and asset integrity is somewhat predictable. As consultants in the AEC industry, we must frequently negotiate both of these systems. Here we will discuss the availability and limitations of public and proprietary data for modeling natural systems including the National Elevation Dataset, the NRCS STATSGO/SSURGO soil datasets, the National Hydrography dataset, and more. We will also present several examples of risk-based raster models developed to help guide project planning and protect infrastructure assets. Topics of discussion will include raster model workflows, technical development, and web-based tools/applications.
