Governments and businesses have duty of care and standard of care obligations. Failure to satisfy those obligations may result in complaints from citizens, clients, and shareholders, and actions involving civil or criminal litigation for negligence. This presentation outlines the materials presented during a session designed for Geographic Information System Professionals (GISPs) and other professionals responsible for: a) identifying and recommending the information contained in public and corporate documents; and b) obtaining and providing the information needed by governments and businesses to achieve duty of care and standard of care obligations contained in official documents, including charters, constitutions, by-laws, plans, ordinances, manuals, maps, surveys, and reports. The presentation was given in a special session at the 2010 GIS-PRO Conference, Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (urisa.org).
