Accurate data is healthy data. And healthy data is vital to any successful GIS implementation! Errors introduce unacceptable risk and unplanned costs. Therefore, the quality of your GIS data is critical for decision-making, planning, and analysis.
Wouldn’t it be valuable to get an assessment of how “clean” your data is from an Esri expert?
There is now a way to do that! At the upcoming Esri user conference, you have the opportunity to virtually connect 1:1 with an Esri industry expert who will review and analyze your GIS data, focusing on features and attributes using Esri’s data quality management extension ArcGIS Data Reviewer.
If you work with one of the below datasets, you can take advantage of this opportunity by filling out a form with your contact information, selecting the dataset you would like Esri to review, and submitting the form to schedule your virtual appointment.
- Water, wastewater, storm water
- Land records, addressing, and street centerlines
- Electric and gas
- Linear referenced pipelines
- Airports (airfield operations)
Upon submitting the form, you will be provided with instructions on how to prepare your data for the appointment. Esri will then contact you to schedule a date/time during the UC virtual showcase hours listed below and will provide a location for you to upload your data.
Monday, July 13, 2020 | 11:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. PDT
Tuesday, July 14, 2020 | 7:30 a.m.–10:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. PDT
Wednesday, July 15, 2020 | 7:30 a.m.–10:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. PDT
During your appointment, you’ll receive an explanation of the key data checks, a review of key data concerns (if errors are detected), a copy of the error features, and an Excel report with percent accuracy. In the case of Indoors dataset, you will receive a data readiness checklist to see if your building data is ready to be migrated into the Indoors data model.
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? Are you interested in moving to Utility Network or Parcel Fabric? Does your organization rely on GIS data for analysis and/or decision-making? 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 and accurate. After all, good data is the heart of any GIS!
