I work for an environmental consulting firm as a GIS Analyst. We often perform analyses using ArcMap geoprocessing tools, and then we summarize our findings in excel so those numbers can go in reports.
We are trying to better our QAQC practices and I was wondering if anyone has any helpful ideas or standard practices they use when running analyses.
One of our issues is we often get new project data, and then have to re-run an analysis. We are trying to figure out a way to keep our work consistent and organized, and also to make sure that when we get new data, we update each table we made to reflect the new data.
One of our ideas was to use naming conventions that must include the date that the new data was created, so that our data file names match the excel file names.
Any ideas, tips, suggestions are appreciated!
