Quality in creation and maintenance of Geographic Data
This presentation focuses on the study of characteristics of digital geographical data and the
influence of these characteristics on the quality of map usage and decision-making processes.
Characteristics of digital geographical data are mainly described from the point of view of their
technical parameters and keeping the technological indicators while obtaining or maintaining
them. Technical characteristics of data are evaluated mainly by the level of accomplishment of
qualitative indicators, e.g. meeting all requirements of horizontal and vertical mean square error,
or by completeness of filling of all expected information.

The Data Zoo – How people can improve data quality
People can be both your best resource both for improving data quality and for the utilisation of
data, but they can also be your biggest cause of data quality issues.
This presentation is based upon The Data Zoo - a unique concept that illustrates how user
behaviours influence data quality both individually and as part of a wider organisation. Gaining a
greater understanding of how people behave towards data and what influences these behaviours
will enable you to use a number of pragmatic approaches that help to improve how data is used
within your organisation.
