The liveshare crowd-sourcing concept is good but one major flaw that HB needs to address is data reliability and accuracy. There needs to be some curation of the data to validate it. Lac Seul is the poster child for bad data. In looking over parts of the lake one can see the software flaws of digital depth recording problem and GPS problems embedded in the submitted data. Unfortunately the way HB has setup and constrained the liveshare data there is no way to edit the data in any way and it must be imported en bloc. So HB software errors are now propagating thru liveshare and inducing collateral damages.
These problems marginalize the value of liveshare to me. I look forward to HB applying some technology solutions to help fix these problems and make liveshare more reliable and usable either by making the data editable or scrubbing and cleaning the data before it goes in the database.
