Data Management and GIS

1. Planning your GIS project

2. A case study example and the problems encountered

3. Advantages of using a Geodatabase!

4. Worldwide frustrations! Nasty GIS...

5. Top tips for good GIS practice


Data Types in GIS

  • Maps (road, rivers etc)

  • Site locations (with attributes)

  • Satellite data

  • Topographic data


Data Management and GIS

1. Research question and project goals.

What is the purpose of the project?

What is the research question?

2. Methodology.

What types of analyses will you perform?

3. Data.

What type of spatial data do you need to achieve your goals? .

4. Presentation.

Where will your results be presented? (Journal papers?, Powerpoint?, Books, Posters? Website?)

5. Archiving.

Where will the data be archived long-term. (On an external hardrive? on-line data-archiving service (AHDS)? University server? Other user/Organisation)

GIS: Global frustations which require a network support group!

“I learnt the hard way, like many others, an errant space in a filename can lead to hours of work being undone. Instead of damaging university property, I quietly left the room to find a corner to scream in.”

“I loathe this program... I want to murder whoever designed it... especially the bright spark who thought that making Arc 9.2 incompatible with previous versions was a good idea”


  • Use a geodatabase while your project is ongoing.

  • When your project is coming to an end, investigate the current advice on the best ways to store individual files

  • Always check the current AHDS guidelines for file storage types

  • Use metadata and make time to keep on top of this! Perhaps keep papers copies too..

  • Always embed metadata within file names and use underscores

  • Enrol to internet based GIS community groups to receive software updates

  • Backup entire geodatabases to remote hard-drives
