Track: Parks, Natural Reserves, Fisheries, and Wildlife Management
Authors: Joseph Miller
The US Forest Service has begun developing a geospatial data quality management program to accompany its maturing enterprise data management system and the public appetite for data. New federal polices for open federal data lead to data dissemination beyond field specialists so greater assurance of data quality becomes a mission imperative. The emerging data quality management plans will demonstrate the Forest Service’s commitment to serving the public through the quality of data.
