Quality in User Generated Spatial Content: A matter of specifications

13th AGILE International Conference on Geographic Information Science - 2010

The impact of the Web 2.0 on increasing the amount of user generated content on the Internet is immeasurable. In particular, there has been a growing interest for creating online communities where users contribute to the creation of spatial content. This phenomenon has been called Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI). However, quality has been one of the main issues in user generated spatial content. Quality of spatial content tends to be a concept quite complex. An important notion both to improve quality during production and to help in providing quality metadata for the users is that of specifications. These are the most detailed available source of knowledge about geographic databases content. Therefore, our approach aims at improving quality in UGSC based on specifications. This paper also examines important definitions and related work on quality in UGSC.
