On Data Quality Assurance and Conflation Entanglement in Crowdsourcing for Environmental Studies

Didier Leibovici, Julian Rosser, Crona Hodges, Barry Evans, Michael Jackson, Chris Higgins
2017 ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information  
Looking at current practices in VGI data quality and using two examples, namely land cover validation and inundation extent estimation, this paper discusses the close links between QA and DCDF.  ...  Far from rejecting the usability ISO quality criterion, the paper advocates for a decoupling of the QA process and the DCDF step as much as possible while still integrating them within an approach analogous  ...  Conflicts of Interest: The authors declare no conflict of interest.  ...
