Anyone who works with geospatial information eventually faces the problem of managing change over time. This is especially true if multiple editors are involved, when working with data can lead to the frustration of conflicting changes, slow validation, and other challenges.

Even land areas under water are measurable up to a certain depth. It is reasonable to say that we are at the point where nearly everything above ground is mapped.
