On June 16th and 18th 2015, Intelli3 presented 90 minutes webinars, organized in English and French by GeoConnections (Natural Resources Canada), to discuss geospatial data quality evaluation and the management of risks of inappropriate use of geospatial data.
The context in which geospatial data is produced and used has changed significantly in the last decades. Today, as we are entering the “Data Era”, more and more data, including geospatial data, is being collected and published on the Web every day. Now, everyone, even without geospatial knowledge, can make maps, geospatial mashups and various types of geospatial applications for different purposes and even share them to other users. However, today’s typical users do not understand the uncertain nature of geospatial data and take digital data for granted, without considering their quality and validity for their intended usage. Users have limited knowledge of the risks associated with the use of geospatial data which may have significant social, political and even economical consequences.
This webinar informs you on the importance of geospatial data quality, the concepts underlying geospatial data quality, the fundamentals of geospatial data quality evaluation and risk management, geospatial data quality evaluation and risk management in practice, and gives recommendations in Business-to-Business (B2B), Business-to-Consumer (B2C) and Consumer-to-Consumer (C2C) contexts.
