Share Your Data QC Results with Others Using Two New Tools

ArcGIS Data Reviewer is an extension to ArcGIS for Desktop and ArcGIS for Server that enables you to centrally manage the quality control (QC) life cycle—reviewing, correcting, and verifying errors—thereby eliminating paper trails associated with traditional QC processes.  Esri recently released the Managing Data Reviewer Records for ArcGIS 10.3  template, which includes two Python scripts – Copy Data Reviewer Records and Export Data Reviewer Records to Shapefile. Both scripts were developed in response to customer requests for additional ways to manage and share quality information.  Specifically, the scripts facilitate workflows for managing large numbers of records in an automated way and sharing error information with others who do not have Data Reviewer.
