Following previous successful workshops in 2015 and 2018, EuroGeographics and EuroSDR, in conjunction with OGC, ISO and ICA, are pleased to announce a third workshop on spatial data quality to be held in Valletta, Malta on 28th and 29th
In the past number of years use of crowdsourcing by National Mapping and Cadastral Agencies (NMCA) has grown from being a disruptive technological idea to a mainstream source of geographic data and information.
Following the successful workshop on spatial data quality in Malta in January 2015, a second workshop will be held in Valletta, Malta on 6th and 7th February 2018.
The concept of open data is gaining momentum as open data are often associated with realizing many government ambitions, such as increased economic value and solving societal problems.
Producers of geospatial data wish to be able to maximise the use of their data and solve users’ problems quickly. Understanding whether a dataset is suitable for an intended use is critical in deciding which dataset to use.
Due to the enormous growth of available spatial data, quality of spatial data is becoming a very important selection criterion to find the most adequate data for the intended use. Fitness for use is leading in determining quality of data.
