Accurate and healthy data is vital to a successful GIS implementation! 

Errors introduce unacceptable risk and unplanned costs. The quality of your GIS data, thus, is critical for decision-making, planning, and analysis.  

 

Are you looking to get an assessment of how “clean” or “ready” your data is from an Esri expert? 

 

What are the benefits of a data health check appointment? 

  • There are various reasons why you should sign up. Are you new to GIS and just starting to migrate your data into a geodatabase? Does your organization rely on GIS data for analysis and/or decision-making? Are you looking to migrate to the Indoors data model or integrate your BIM data into GIS? In all these cases and more, there can be trouble when you have missing information or data in the incorrect location. A data health check gives you an assessment of the data’s current quality, enabling you to take next steps in ensuring the data is healthy, accurate and ready for its intended purposes. After all, good data is the heart of any GIS!
