In data we trust?

Data are the basis of today’s society. Answers to all questions, from the mundane where is the nearest pizzeria to the critical how quickly is the Covid-19 pandemic spreading, need data. And since everything happens somewhere, most of these answers need geospatial data. There are many sources and providers of geospatial information, does that mean that any will do? Trusted, authoritative sources of geospatial information are fundamental to providing certainty to citizens, governments and businesses. National mapping and cadastral authorities deliver the official geospatial reference data that underpins clear, consistent and trusted messages and decisions.

Following an introduction to the term ‘authoritative’ and how it is used to describe trusted data from official sources, the presentation continues by outlining why authoritative data are important. Examples from various members of EuroGeographics illustrate the value of trustworthy and quality data applied at national, regional and global levels.

10:40 - 10:55 Technology Overview Seb Lessware, CTO, 1Spatial

Seb will present 1Spatial developments in technology to help to build, maintain and publish high quality authoritative data using on-premise or cloud platform tools, including managing 2D and 3D data together and creating portals for automated data validation, ingest and processing.

10:55-11:15 Keynote Presentation John Kimmance, MD of National Mapping Services, Ordnance Survey Great Britain

National Mapping Services - Authoritative Data supporting Public Sector and Commercial outcomes

An overview of Ordnance Survey’s National Mapping Service delivered through the Public Sector Geospatial Agreement (PSGA). Highlighting benefits for both the Public Sector and the wider market and providing a forward look at what is planned to be further delivered in the next couple of years.

11:15 - 11:20 Virtual Tea Break and Networking

11:20-11:40 Case Study Éamonn Clinton, General Manager, Geospatial Services, Data Governance & Quality, Ordnance Survey Ireland

National Mapping and COVID, Ordnance Survey Ireland COVID response

OSi, the national mapping agency, has a mandate to create and maintain the definitive national mapping and related geographic records. In order to design and build a secure saleable system for publishing and sharing this complex data to the public and private sectors the agency faced a number of challenges including dealing with the explosion of geospatial data sources and automating complex workflow and processes. Eamonn talks us through how these challenges were overcome.

11:40-11:55 Panel Session, chaired Phillip Ridley, 1Spatial featuring Carol Agius, EuroGeographics, Simon Roberts, Improvement Service and Adam Burke, Natural Resources Wales

During the panel session we will be joined by industry experts and thought leaders answering your questions and exchanging thoughts on the use of authoritative data, and the importance of it’s quality on a local, national and international level.

If you haven’t asked a question yet, now’s your chance!

11:55-12:00 Virtual Tea Break and Networking

12:00-12:20 Case Study Christiana Clark, Project Manager, Greater London Authority

As the strategic authority of London, the Greater London Authority works with authoritative data on a daily basis by servicing our open data-sharing portal the London Datastore and building digital tools that use authoritative data from other public bodies. This presentation will explore the various digital twins of London and particularly focus on the GLA’s role in aggregating, transforming and validating authoritative data from various infrastructure providers and local authorities for the National Underground Asset Register.

12:20-12:40 Case Study Chad Baker, Geospatial Data Officer, California Department of Transportation

Data Governance and Data Quality enhancing transparency and decision making

In 2018, the California Department of Transportation embarked on an enterprise data governance program ultimately named CTDATA (Caltrans Data is Authoritative, Trusted and Accessible). One of the broadly identified pain points was related to the quality of data. The governance team created guidance and partnered with specific business areas to implement improved practices to drive data informed decision making. This presentation discusses Caltrans’ approach to implementing data quality practices, provides specific business area examples where the practices were implemented and lessons learned.

12:40-13:00 Case Study Mark Holmes, Geographic Information Officer, State of Michigan

Bringing Data Together Through Technology and Collaboration

The State of Michigan is implementing a new statewide geographic framework solution to integrate authoritative data from contributors at all levels of government. The State’s Michigan Geographic Framework is being redesigned with 1Spatial’s latest technologies to provide more streamlined workflows for contributing data and enhanced validations of the data using established business rules. The new solution will help to foster increased collaboration across local, state, and federal programs as well as improve the accuracy of data for aggregation into statewide datasets. Many of these aggregated datasets are fundamental GIS layers to many programs at all levels of government such as emergency management, transportation, asset management, and the environment. This presentation will highlight some of the business cases for the new technology to drive efficiency and data consistency.

13:00-13:05 Wrap up & Thank you Matt White, Senior Business Development Manager, 1Spatial
