Hi Sarah et al
the presentation also showed us the software the county was thinking of using.
My initial view was similar to Sarah's - as we need to validate most of our records individually, we could clean up mapping then. Also, as much of our data is points based on NGR's, I just wouldn't bother (if its a few metres out when all the point is really saying is "somewhere around here" I don't think it matters much)
However, Designations are more of an issue, as boundaries matter a lot more, especially if they have legal status - but isn't it EH's problem? I had thought we might need to correct SM's and others, but am not sure if we will (still early days, though).
Someone from EH giving us an idea would be useful on what EH are doing about it would be appreciated.

Yes, we have been dealing with PAI for quite a while now. Our answer is
We have been correcting our core designation polygon datasets (SMs, P&Gs), and to some extent our fieldwork polys. We add feature level metadata to each object to identify whether it is PAI corrected or not. As many of the polygons needed cleaning and tidying anyway we thought this was worthwhile doing at the same time. For small datasets it is moderately easy and moderately useful, for larger datasets it can be very time consuming and by no means high priority, without an immediate and obvious benefit. There are programmes which apply the PAI changes automatically which I have chosen not to use for our designations datasets because they needed validation at the same time, but which have been available in the authority.
