Evaluating a Cartographic Web Site

When evaluating sources, consider the following:

Currency: How new is the information?

Relevancy: Don't just focus on the headline. READ the source closely.

Authority: Who is the author? Are they an expert?

Accuracy: Is the information correct? Does the author cite sources?

Purpose: Why is the information being presented?
