PEPFAR’s Experience with Spatial Data Quality: Moving towards spatial data governance

  1. 1. PEPFAR’s experience with spatial data quality Moving towards spatial data governance MEASURE GIS Working Group June 23, 2016 Nate Heard Humanitarian Information Unit U.S. Department of State
  2. 2. PEPFAR’s experience with spatial data quality  What do we mean by spatial data quality?  PEPFAR spatial data  Bad data!  Writing and implementing spatial data governance policy 2
  3. 3. Data are quality data if they are fit for their intended use Decimal places and precision 3 decimal places degrees N/S or E/W at equator 0 1.0 111.32 km 1 0.1 11.132 km 2 0.01 1.1132 km 3 0.001 111.32 m 4 0.0001 11.132 m 5 0.00001 1.1132 m
  4. 4. PEPFAR spatial data
  5. 5. DATIM: Data for Accountability, Transparency, and Impact  Built on DHIS2  36 national and regional programs  Subnational unit hierarchies to low levels (>10,000)  ~46,000 clinical sites  Requirement for clinical sites to have latitude and longitude  Every place has a unique ID 5 UNCLASSIFIED

PEPFAR Spatial Data Lifecycle PEPFAR Spatial Data Lifecycle • Introduction • Varieties of spatial data in PEPFAR • Points- access • Points: Roles and responsibilities • Prioritizing geographic coordinates for capture or improvement • Capturing geographic coordinates • Quality checks for geographic coordinates • Point standards • Datum • Spatial metadata in DATIM • Geographic exactness • Geographic class • Mobile clinics • Updating geographic coordinates in DATIM • Sensitive spatial data • Polygons - access • Polygons: Roles and responsibilities • Importing polygons into DATIM • Map clearance and publication • National Spatial Data Infrastructure integration • Supporting documentation and metadata • Data formats • References
