This is the fourth in a six-unit series on the design, purchase and implementation of a GIS. It discusses benchmarking, which allows a vendor’s proposed system to be evaluated in a controlled setting. Qualitative and quantitative benchmarking are described, and an example mathematical model developed for a quantitative benchmark is explained. Preparation for and execution of benchmarking are illustrated with an example from Alberta Government Telephones.
