Four Final Questions

Chapter 1 concluded by presenting, for consideration in Chapters 2-22, four final questions:

  • Do local people require information that a transactional system can deliver?

  • Can local people contribute enough data of use at higher levels?

  • Can current technology build such a system?

  • Can the building and long-term operation of such a system be supported?

It is time to answer those questions.
