The data and information quality is multi-dimensional and is always of concern to end users. Ensuring and improving data and information quality is an end-to-end process and a shared responsibility of all stakeholders, including kay players (data producers, stewards, providers or distributors) and other major stakeholders (sponsor, power users, and management). Clearly defined roles and responsibilities of stakeholders allows for effective cross-disciplinary communication and better resource allocation, supporting organizations in meeting the challenges of stewarding digital Earth Science data products in the Open Data and Big Data era.
Consistent descriptive information including the quality of individual data products is important to users in making informed and effective use or stewardship decisions. It is necessary for establishing the trustworthiness of the data and information and meeting transparency requirement. This presentation describes some of the researches in these areas, including categorization of information quality based on data product life stages. The goal of the researches aims to facilitate the processes of curating and integrating consistent quality descriptive information for both human and machine end-users.
