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.

Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS) - commonly called drones - are an emerging technology that has the potential to be integrated with many of the same fields that currently use Geographic Information System (GIS) technologies. UAS provide the GIS community access to another method of data collection using a wide variety of sensors such as video, RGB, infrared, thermal and LiDAR. This workshop will investigate the current regulations, aerial platforms, sensors, flying techniques, data processing, mapping products and end-user applications for this exciting new technology. Attendees will be able to get a good look at a number of different platforms and there will be an open discussion about the advantages and disadvantages of different solutions and how they potentially fit into the workflow of number of industries, including engineering, agriculture, natural resources, forestry and disaster management.
