Abstract

This chapter reviews the data lifecycle with respect to geographic information (GI) and details issues related to its digital curation. An overview of data curation profiles, institutional repositories, and spatial data catalogs frame the current approaches and tools used for GI curation. The GI collected and maintained in information agencies continues to change, but each technological advancement in the creation of GI does not exclude the sharing and preservation of older GI types and formats. Therefore, a section on analog collection development and maintenance is included because many information professionals continue to archive print cartographic resources.
