I realize this is a sort of a subjective question, but I've seen other subjective questions on the site, so I thought it I'd put it out there. A colleague recently had a request for "geospatial data" with a grant that they were submitting, and were confused by exactly what was being asked for. My explanation was that they were asking for any GIS data related to the project area. My explanation seemed to work, but I wanted to put it to the community at large for a more defined definition.
How would you define "geospatial data" to a non-GIS professional?
