Harnessing data quality feedback on a daily basis is a great way to keep your GIS data up-to-date and relevant. Of even greater value is the ability to extend your data quality workflows to include participation from the public, who often times have unique insight to share on features in the real-world.
The Data Reviewer team is pleased to announce the release of the Report Feature widget for ArcGIS Viewer for Flex. The data reporting capabilities of this widget allows a broad community of subject matter experts, stakeholders, and other consumers of your published data to detect data quality issues, and provide timely and relevant feedback on the integrity of your organization’s data.
The widget leverages data validation capabilities of ArcGIS Data Reviewer for Server to “redline” features that are missing, miscoded, or positionally incorrect. For example, a simple “Report Error” workflow can now be easily added to your public facing web applications without the burden of implementing the entire quality control (QC) process from scratch. When your customers discover an error, they can easily submit their feedback by identifying an error’s source, location, and other relevant information.
This feedback is written to the Reviewer workspace where it enters Data Reviewer’s error life cycle management process. The Reviewer workspace serves as a centralized location for storing and managing errors, including those detected using Data Reviewer’s automated checks.
Using ArcGIS Data Reviewer for Desktop, technicians can then quickly navigate to errors, investigate the issues using customer provided input for guidance, and finally conduct edits on the data if there are errors to be corrected.
The Report Feature widget for the ArcGIS Viewer for Flex is a great way to gather feedback from those who use your data on a daily basis. Further, by leveraging Data Reviewer’s error management capabilities it makes it easier to manage and track this feedback throughout the review/correction/verification process.
