CARIGEO Webinar # 3 for Caribbean Geoportal

Focus:  Data Publishing

Working Title: Metadata, Maintenance and Best practices on Data sharing

Proposed Title:  Good decisions need good data… a look at good practices on data sharing

Date: September 21st 

Time:  7:00 am to 9:00 am pacific (10:00 am to 12 noon eastern)


Sponsors:  GGIM Americas, CARIGEO


Abstract:    Hunting down good data used to involve a lot of work just to get a GIS project started. These days, using ready-made basemaps and data from authoritative sources allows GIS users to be able to spend more time thinking analytically, which really gets to the heart of what makes GIS work for our communities and our nations.

In this session, we will look at good practices for sharing of data.   What considerations are needed from the technology side as well as governance in order to share usable, discoverable, authoritative data.  Good decisions need good data – we must be able to find, use, make and share data based on the issue at hand in order to improve outcomes.
