The quality of GIS data cannot be assessed independently of what it should be used for ("fitness for use"); this assessment requires
currently human expert interaction. If the user describes how he uses the data to make a decision, a general method for assessing the
quality with respect to their decision is possible. The decision process is divided into two phases, the first producing a decision
model and the second uses this model to arrive at the decision. The same decision model is then used to assess the quality of the
decision as it derives from the quality of data. Examples for engineering and commercial decisions are given.
