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.

John Waterman, GISP, PMP

This presentation will discuss a new approach to utilizing GIS to help reduce soil loss on farms. For precision conservation to be practical and effective, farmers and agronomist must have tools that can pinpoint conservation needs. Using GIS on the web, conservation practitioners can quickly and easily target appropriate management practices to landscape positions that contribute the most significant sediment loads and evaluate which practice alternatives provide the most environmental benefit. Traditionally, this process was time consuming on the desktop and required scientific and professional knowledge. Moving to a simple web based front-end and cloud back-end, now requires no previous GIS experience to produce complex analysis in short order. This presentation will review the front-end as well as technical mechanics of the solution.
