Data is the foundation of every successful GIS. To ensure a reliable foundation for their GIS, organizations should have a well-designed quality assurance (QA) plan and quality control (QC) procedures integrated with the production and maintenance of GIS data. This course covers errors and quality in GIS data and provides practical guidelines for creating a complete QA plan. Using both ArcGIS Desktop and GIS Data ReViewer software (an application included with PLTS for ArcGIS—Foundation), you learn techniques for evaluating and verifying data quality. The course focuses on QC tools and workflows that simplify many aspects of automated and visual data quality control tasks, with an eye toward ever-improving technology.
