The five precepts are useful as they provide a framework for defining, planning and implementing Enterprise GIS.  While these precepts take a data focused view which experience has shown has delivered excellent results.  The precepts also help determine needed GIS applications and datasets.    

Time Slices/Historic Data
A big change to accomplish Enterprise GIS is to begin to provide historic data for the most critical data in the GIS data model.  This relates to pixels and vectors as well as attributes.  The surveyor’s role is especially critical when we add time slices and historic data to our Enterprise GIS.     

Highest Quality of Data
Almost by definition, all GIS data, themes or layers will need to be of the absolute highest quality.  This includes pixels, vectors and many attributes too.  With GIS data quality assured many more uses and applications are possible from GIS, especially many finance and Geoauditing opportunities.  The surveyor’s role is especially critical in this precept as others.     

Addresses and Supporting Framework
In forty years plus, implementing GIS has shown us the overwhelming importance of situs addresses as the most fundamental part of the GIS architecture and integral to the GIS’ enhanced data model.  The role of 3-D and addresses will also be covered.  The important role of the centerline constructs will also be covered.

Complete Data sets
This precept represents complete coverage of an activity, inventory, category or condition.  QA/QC procedures will also be covered.  Daily operations to ensure data quality will be covered.   

This goes far beyond “building points” as we must include all apartments, suites, rooms and occupancies in our Enterprise GIS.  Air and mineral rights are another perspective on 3-D/Subparcels.  The plethora of underground and above ground utilities will also be needed for Enterprise GIS.  The notion of subparcels is “catching on” and will change our entire perspective on Enterprise GIS.  With parking spaces now being bought and sold we must also connect parking lots and spaces better to GIS.
