Find support on the Data services and Data Management


Data acquisition is the second main step when using GIS/RS in a project. This step can be the most time-consuming.

If you don't have the data that you will need to answer your project questions, you will need to acquire it using one or multiple methods -- download, survey, digitizing, geocoding and so on.

In this session you can explore multiple ways to gather data.

It is always a good idea to be aware of the distribution and use restrictions. Make sure you review the description, copyright, redistribution rights before start sharing the dataset with others.

In this session, we will explore some topics related to data collection.
