The automated rules-based approach disrupting data management

Careful management is key to unlocking the value of data. With huge volumes flowing through today’s data-rich organisations however, governance is an ongoing challenge.

1Spatial’s pioneering rules-based approach uses automation to give you power over your data, putting you in control so that you can be confident it is current, complete, consistent and compliant. With 1Spatial, the rules are written to match your requirements, by you, in collaboration with our experts or for you managed within a central rules catalogue, shared across the enterprise and easily applied to any GIS platform.

How does it work?

Rules are used for two things:

1) Validating the data to measure quality levels and identify the specific problems within it.

2) Enhancing the data such as fixing the problems, synchronising and integrating different sources of data, inferring missing data or transforming it to a more useful and valuable form.

You create a rules catalogue (or adapt an existing one) to meet your specific data requirements and automate the data management process. These rules form the basis of a data quality management system for auditing, measuring and improving existing data as well as enabling a data delivery gateway for data flowing into your systems. In this way not only is existing data improved but incoming data can be rejected or rerouted if it does not meet the quality requirements defined by the rules.

As a result, our rules-based approach provides automated yet flexible data management processes that can be shared and are repeatable across enterprises and different platforms, and always applied consistently and objectively.

Key benefits of our rules-based approach:

By using our patented 1Integrate rules engine, you’ll join some of the largest geospatial databases in the world embracing automation to deliver well-structured, well-managed data.
