At my company we are starting to get more serious about keeping track of changes to our geo-referenced data and maps. I'm looking into this and am wondering how people do it at other companies.
We have decades of historical data that is often suspect, and gets geo-referenced multiple times as new information comes to light. We want a document that is used for each transformation to record the source (coordiantes, topography, other map), projection, etc, etc. Our GIS team is 5 people and growing with 50 in house people accessing the data as well as outside organizations and government. At the moment we use Windows 7, ArcGIS Desktop 10.0, Geosoft Montaj, AutoCAD 2012, Microsoft Access '07, and Sharepoint, as our primary programs to make changes.
Is there an automatic logging program that records everything that was done during a session in Arc? Which would also keep track of projections and transformations, point creation, etc. Or is this thing best done in Notepad by hand?
Thanks for your feedback.
