Abstract

Government departments and agencies collect, generate, store and use large amounts of data which have been obtained at considerable cost. Many of these data are geographical in that they are referenced to geographical locations, such as points, lines or areas. The booklet sets out the standards of good practice on information handling that users can expect. Many individual departments and agencies have used this broad framework as the basis for their own geographic information policy statement. This guide provides the next step in advising officials responsible for information handling, by providing general guidance on managing data as a valued resource. The guide had been produced for those responsible for Geographic Information, although the management principles are equally relevant to other types of government data.
