The progress or expansion of GIS users in Malaysia has brought the question of integrity and quality of spatial data to the forefront and hence on the appropriate management of the data. Issues of liability from harm resulting from the use, misuse and inappropriate uses of the data and information as well as from decisions arrived from inaccurate data is therefore inevitable. The writers, after determining the meaning and the need for geospatial data accuracy, will reflect on the law and standards pertaining to data accuracy and its legal implication due to the lack of accuracy by tracing the source or basis of data inaccuracy i.e. primary data source, processing of the data and the human factor
