This unit discusses several aspects of managing error in spatial databases. It begins with a hypothetical example of a routing problem that is used to demonstrate the process of error analysis and sensitivity analysis in a modeling exercise. Sources of artifacts in raster and vector data, and strategies to avoid them, are presented, and methods for storing accuracy information in a database are discussed.
