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.

Lidar (light detection and ranging) is a remote-sensing technique that uses laser light to densely sample the surface of the Earth and generate precise, three-dimensional information about its shape and surface characteristics. LiDAR is used to produce more accurate shoreline maps, make digital elevation models for use in a GIS, assist in emergency response operations, and in many other applications. In this session participants will explore sites for LiDAR download, experience the ease of creating a LiDAR LAS dataset, and use the ArcMap LAS toolbar for visualization and analysis.
