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.

Dan Walters, USGS National Geospatial Program

The Department of the Interior's U.S. Geological Survey and other Federal agencies are launching a 3D Elevation Program (3DEP) designed to bring Federal agencies, academia, corporate entities, states, tribes, and communities together to develop advanced 3-dimensional mapping data of the United States. These data and related tools will be used in the areas of flood risk management, storm water management, mitigation of coastal erosion and storm surge impacts, and as an essential component of supporting action on climate resilience and adaptation. 3DEP data are critical to many more applications, as documented in the 2012 National Enhanced Elevation Assessment (NEEA). The presentation will outline the results of the NEEA study and provide state and local officials the details they need to prepare for,support and take advantage of 3DEP.
