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.

OpenStreetMap (OSM), often referred to as the ‘Wikipedia of maps’, is an open source map of the world that anyone can contribute to or download from. The OSM platform makes it easy for educators to incorporate spatially oriented projects into the classroom, expose students to new technologies and help them build valuable skills. Projects can range from digitizing the essential infrastructure of one’s hometown to participating in creating a basemap of Nepal’s buildings and road networks to guide humanitarian relief workers in the aftermath of the recent earthquake. This presentation will cover potential projects that can be incorporated into the curriculum and case studies of how OSM has already been used in a classroom setting. Get ready to learn how to use OSM.
