Along this article we are going to explain some interesting strategies to reach the quality required for the phenomena considered inside the feature catalogue for the new BTA data model proposed by the Spanish Cartographic Norms Committee. We will focus on guaranteeing network connectivity, data accuracy and topological relationships between geometries of different phenomena. To reach our goal we will use ArcGIS software suite and its spatial analyst extension, building our own rules trying to automate the process and avoiding spending time to other interested users reusing our data model topology. The final goal of this work is to promote the migration to the new data model to earn interoperability between every cartographic producer by providing tools for potential users. © 2011 Springer-Verlag.
