A Survey of Digital Chart of the World (DCW) Use and Data Quality

31 Dec 1995

The Digital Chart of the World (DCW) is one of most comprehensive global GIS databases available to the public. There exists a wide variety of potential applications for using the DCW data, yet there is limited information about current use of DCW and its associated data quality. This brief report presents the results of a small Internet based survey of DCW use and issues of data quality. In addition, there are details on some products derived from the DCW and information of two applications of DCW use in the Arctic.
