ABSTRACT. Good data is the foundation of any map or mapping application. There are a few best management practices that are easy to implement and make working on a project more efficient and produce successful outcomes. _x000D_
Doing things the quickest way is not always the best way. It is important to think about the project long term. Spending a few more minutes setting files up can save a lot of time in the future. _x000D_
When working on a project think about yourself revisiting the project a year later, about someone else taking over the project, potential changes and revisions that may be requested, and future needs of the project. _x000D_
This presentation will cover a few tips and tricks for file naming conventions, documenting sources and changes, and querying data. Although data and best management practices are not the most exciting topic, they are the building blocks to any successful project and are important to keep in mind as a GIS professional.
