Quality Assessment without Metadata
Track: Editing and Data Compilation
Authors: Tony Watts
Metadata is rarely present, rarely appropriate and hard to access, limiting its use as an indicator of quality. This paper demonstrates a method of quality assessment using proof data,comparison tools accessed from an add-in for ArcMap and existing ESRI tools that allow a user defined quality assessment. The producer is therefore relieved of the onerous metadata provision replacing it with proof data from which the user can determine if it is fit their intended purpose.
