This book provides an all-important overview of the issues involved in GIS data conversion projects, positioning data as the foundation of any GIS. Among the issues readers will explore are: understanding and locating data; allocating personnel, budgets and time; documenting the process; becoming familiar with the target system; selecting conversion and input methods; understanding the ramifications of transfer standards; and safeguarding data quality. Not overly technical, the book does a good job of explaining some of the more abstract concepts related to data conversion that can be difficult to convey and comprehend, such as data source types, synthesis and formats.
