Why Data Quality Matters—Now
More Than Ever

Joseph J. Kerski, PhD, GISP


Cloud-based data services and maps
make it easy for anyone to obtain vast amounts of data in a short amount of
time. In an environment where such a wide variety and volume of geospatial and
other data is available, is data quality still of concern?  Join
geographer and educator Joseph Kerski as he makes the case that data quality
considerations matter now more than ever. Through examples such as “Be critical
of the data—especially when it’s your own!”, we will explore real-world
examples that illustrate the necessity of understanding the benefits but also
the challenges in successfully navigating our geodata-saturated world.
