Expedio's Top Tip for March better Data Capture:
Data capture is one of the most important processes in data management. Getting it right at the point of capture will negate many errors before they become a big problem further down the process stream.
A data capture tool should enforce strict standards on a user to only allow valid data to be entered. For example:
- Enforce company codes - pick lists to fields to ensure adherence to company logging standards and avoid a situation of people creating their own geology codes.
- Built in validation rules to allow worksheet checks, this provides the ability to define contextual checking of data within and across multiple worksheets. Validations will allow you to check for:
- Overlapping or missing intervals
- Invalid dip/azimuth/grid values
- End depth checking
- Invalid sample types or groups
- Contextual or logical checking across data columns
- Manage data flow - only allowing a user to export data once from a logging tool to avoid a double up in data in the production database and creating an issue of multiple data sets. Which data set is correct?
