Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module. This may include not only scheduled classes or workplace visits but also the amount of effort required to undertake, evaluate and complete all assessment requirements, including any non-classroom activities.
Pre-requisites and Co-requisites
This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to develop data collection and validation plans for new data. It requires the ability to evaluate spatial information to apply knowledge to plan future collection requirements. Functions would be carried out within organisational guidelines.
National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria
National Element Code & Title:
CPPSIS5001A Plan spatial data collection and validation
1 Scope spatial data acquisition requirements
1.1 Client instructions are analysed to determine specific needs and spatial data requirements.
2 Evaluate available collection options.
2.1 Assessment of technical, financial, legal and resource implications of each available collection option is conducted to ensure preferred option meets written data specifications.
3 Develop spatial data collection and validation plan.
3.1 Project objectives, deliverables, constraints and principal work activities are defined and documented according to the written specifications.
4 Communicate data acquisition requirements to relevant personnel.
4.1 Written specifications of data to be acquired are communicated with relevant personnel, according to organisational guidelines.
