Over deze norm
ISO 19157 establishes the principles for describing the quality of geographic data. It defines components for describing data quality; specifies components and content structure of a register for data quality measures; describes general procedures for evaluating the quality of geographic data; establishes principles for reporting data quality. This International Standard also defines a set of data quality measures for use in evaluating and reporting data quality. It is applicable to data producers providing quality information to describe and assess how well a dataset conforms to its product specification and to data users attempting to determine whether or not specific geographic data is of sufficient quality for their particular application. This International Standard does not attempt to define minimum acceptable levels of quality for geographic data.
