    In many organizations the quality control process is a long procedure requiring many hours of dedication. In addition, the quality control process is often not centrally managed, resulting in repetition and inefficient practices. The ArcGIS Data Reviewer is an extension to ArcGIS Desktop that provides a complete system to help simplify the quality control processes. Using the Community Maps Template, we will explore how the ArcGIS Data Reviewer creates a more efficient quality control cycle by managing the quality control process. The seminar will conclude
    with an introduction to ArcGIS Server and map caching. Caching enables GIS users to deploy maps to their audience without having to worry about performance since cached services return a collection of images rather than a series of individual layers.
