Four actors are involved in the use and creation of this protocol for the collection of VGI vector data: Spatial data experts propose guidelines for the creation and the application of the protocol; VGI project community/initiators create the protocol based on the guidelines and the project special characteristics; IT experts implement software interfaces and environments for the application of the protocol; and users/contributors collect VGI following the protocol and provide feedback. As the actors in charge of defining the protocol, spatial data experts play a preliminary and crucial role. Nevertheless, the success of the protocol depends equally on all actors and a dynamic and continuous interaction between all of them is required. As long as the VGI project remains active, the protocol should be a living reference that constantly evolves with the actors’ feedback and mutual decisions. View the paper
