Data quality in the Environment and Planning Act

An article was published in the Geo-Info about information houses and data quality. The article was written by Danny Greefhorst who works on behalf of RIVM on supporting information houses. 

With the advent of the Environment and Planning Act, the Dutch government is embarking on a continuous process of improving information about the living environment. In this context, information houses are positioned to direct this quality improvement process. In this way, they lay the data basis for future cooperation between authorities, initiators and other interested parties in the design of the living environment. The information houses apply a number of important basic principles. They are based on trust in the chain, the user is central and transparency is paramount. Read the full article.

In order to fulfil their role as directors in the field of quality, the information houses have drawn up a vision and framework. The quality framework describes a standard set of quality dimensions, indicators and measuring functions which can be used to report on data quality in a uniform manner. This is described in the working paper "Data Quality in the Environment and Planning Act". In addition, a further manual has been drawn up. This document provides a further explanation of the indicators in the quality framework described in the working paper. It also elaborates the indicators for a fictitious case. Finally, it describes a generic step-by-step plan for data quality that can be widely applied (see figure below). An accompanying presentation is also available.
