    Currently any user can share to the public their content if they are given the appropriate permission. This makes for an impossible to manage environment where content is published by many but monitored by few - with no notifications. A workflow option needs to be implemented so that content can be quality checked to ensure metadata is present and the intention of the map is not duplicative with existing products - Before it is shared. The public does not need to be confused by 5 versions of a zoning map or 2 versions of an election results map. A single source of truth needs to be maintained for many subjects, and this is done with authoritative workflows. Absent this AGO is an engine for GIGO. Organizations need to be able to control their message.
