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.

Bob Woolner and students; Hopkinton Middle High School

Sketching, GPS-ing, observing and mapping come together in a middle-school student-led workshop, an opportunity to learn from the best. 7th grade students from Hopkinton Middle High School in Contoocook, NH spend 3 days (and 2 nights) hiking, exploring, sketching and learning at the Cardigan State Park, in Alexandria, NH. These students will share how they s-l-o-w down, and notice details that would ordinarily be skipped over, how they gather location data to supplement their journal entries, and ultimately how they map and present their observations. Students will provide mini-sketchbooks to you, help you sketch details, write observations and gather latitude and longitude data. Sketches will be scanned, geo-referenced, and mapped, using ArcGIS online mapping software (free to k-12 educators). YOU will learn from the best- the students themselves.
