If you are an electric/gas user and missed signing up for a GIS data health check at the UC 2014, you’ll be glad to hear that Esri is offering this at the Electric and Gas GIS Conference in Memphis, TN, Oct 26-29. A GIS data health check session is where an Esri electric/gas industry expert will review and analyze a geographic subset of your data (features and attributes) by running a number of data validation checks using the ArcGIS Data Reviewer extension for data quality management. Any findings will be shared with you along with reports showing percent accuracy. The health checks will be conducted in the Esri exhibit area during the times when the showcase is open. To schedule an appointment, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, organization, contact information, which dataset you are bringing (electric or gas), and a preferred date and time.
The data health checks are returning to this year’s User Conference. Bring a sample of your data in a file or personal geodatabase and an Esri industry expert will review the overall quality of your data. The health check is a quick and easy way to get an insight into whether or not your data meets your business rules. This year Esri is offering the health checks to users in the following industries: water/wastewater/stormwater, electric & gas, roads & highways, land records and addressing, and 3D. You can sign up for this 45-min review of your data by sending an email to email@example.com. Please include your name, organization, phone, email, dataset you’re bringing and preferred date/time for the appointment.
