Get your Data Health Check at Esri India User Conference
Chandan Banerjee, QA Lead and Product Specialist at Esri, answers all your questions about Data Health Check at Esri India User Conference.
Q: What happens during a data health check?
A: A Data Health Check is a 30-minute review and analysis of your data by an Esri industry expert. We will use Esri’s data quality management extension ArcGIS Data Reviewer to run diagnostics and help you evaluate overall data quality based on business rules, specific to your industry. If errors are detected, the Esri expert will review key data concerns with you. Any error features will be captured in a separate geodatabase, and we’ll provide an Excel report to take back to your organization.
Q: Why do I need a Data Health Check?
A: First, think about how and why you use your GIS data. GIS is used to help make important decisions for your organization. There can be trouble when you have missing information or data in the incorrect location. A Data Health Check will give you confidence in the quality of your data so you can trust your GIS-based analysis.
Q: What do I need to do if I want to get a Data Health Check?
A: You just need to bring a sample of your data as a file geodatabase and an Esri industry expert will work one-on-one with you to diagnose, explain, and assess the overall quality of your data. Before the Esri India UC, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
with your name, organization, contact information, what dataset you are bringing, and preferred date and time.
Q: Do I need to have ArcGIS Data Reviewer to participate in Esri’s Data Health Check?
A: You do not need ArcGIS Data Reviewer to get a Data Health Check. However, if you would like to take advantage of the Reviewer workspace and batch job that is provided to you, you can request a free, 60-day evaluation of the software or purchase this extension to continuously monitor and maintain your production geodatabase quality.
Q: If I have ArcGIS Data Reviewer, can I use the batch job and workspace that is provided to me?
A: Absolutely. We hope that you build upon the currently configured check and start using the batch check as part of your data editing and quality control routines.
