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.

Bill Guerette, Presque Isle Middle School

Are you interested in local history, maps and story telling? Story maps combined with interactive maps and multimedia content can create awesome presentations about local history. This presentation will be about one such project. The project is a collaboration between the Presque Isle Airport Museum and Presque Isle Middle School eighth graders. It tells the rich history of the area where the middle school is located. The Story Map explains how it evolved from a grass runway in the 1930's , to an Army Base during WWII, to a launching site for SNARK missiles with nuclear warheads in the late 1950's and finally to the present day uses of the former base.
