EuroGeographics announces new Chair for 
Quality Knowledge Exchange Network

June 08, 2015 -- EuroGeographics has named data quality expert Jonathan Holmes as the new Chair of its Quality Knowledge Exchange Network (QKEN).

Mr Holmes, who is Corporate Data Manager at Ordnance Survey Great Britain, was previously Vice Chair of the expert group which has more than 36 members from 26 countries.

He said: “There is a great demand for up to date, high quality data which is the calling card of national mapping, land registry and cadastral authorities. As a result of the increased use of technology however users today have greater expectations that data is correct so our members need to have systems in place that guarantee quality without incurring extra overheads on the capture process.”

“The methods and technologies used for this are changing and improving all the time. Tracking and sharing information about these is a key focus for QKEN as we continue to support EuroGeographics’ members in delivering the European Location Framework.”

Mr Holmes succeeds Carol Agius who has taken on the role of Administrator for UN-GGIM: Europe. He joined Ordnance Survey in 1986 as a surveyor and, following roles in IT and Information Management, began working with data and data quality in 2001.

EuroGeographics’ KENs provide an open forum for its members and invited experts. Each focuses on an area of particular interest for national mapping, land registry and cadastral authorities. These include business interoperability, cadastre and land registry, positioning and the INSPIRE Directive.
