All Points Blog has an editorial asking “Who’s Responsible for Map Data?“. From the text : “Back in the day we were the only ones to see this data; today its streaming all around the globe for billions of eyes to see and potentially “correct.” I hope the mapping portal operators and their data providing partners will take seriously the need for processes to receive and react to these [correction] requests. Further, they need to as transparent about their decision making as possible to help end user and mapping portal hosts to make the best choices.“
