Overcoming the Gridlock; Working with Data Stewards
Authors: George Wachira
I will provide an in depth look into Petersonís AFB GIS program and the role data stewards play to maintain a robust data rich environment. The program relies heavily on data stewards to maintain and update their own data. This was not always true, before February 2011, data stewards believed that no system could replace the knowledge they have accumulated over the years. The impact of this notion was costing the Air Force thousands of dollars each year. The process is now fixed saving AF money.
