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.
