Geospatial Information (GI) is now in a paradigm of mass consumption. Democratization of software and/or GIS, combined to the increased accessibility of GI caused a tremendous increase in the applications fields for which GI is mainly used to support decisions on operational or strategic levels. This large democratization of GI and related technologies raise important social and legal concerns.
The main scientific objective of this project is to develop innovative solutions to evaluate GI quality and contribute to its responsible commercialization and hence achieve an healthy protection of the public.
