|Enfield Embarks on Data-Cleansing|
26 February 2003
Enfield Council announced today it has selected Radius Topology to help ensure the quality of its spatial data is up to eGovernment standard.
The Borough said the move would make a strong contribution to supporting joined-up government by improving key data used as the basis for information sharing within the Council, with citizens and with the Council's partners.
Mick Wooden, the Council's Chief Information Officer commented: In order to meet government electronic service delivery targets Enfield, like all Councils, needs to pay close attention to the quality of its data. This is especially true of spatial data, which accounts for 80% of all data. Spatial data collected over a long period by many different services and through different software is not "fit for purpose" to meet future requirements."
Working with Radius Topology, Enfield plans to complete the project, which would normally take one person five years to complete, in around five weeks.
