The surge in availability of geospatial data sources, the increased use of crowdsourced maps and the advent of geospatial mashups have brought us to an era where geospatial information is delivered to users after integration from diverse sources. Understanding the provenance of geospatial data is crucial for assessing the quality of the data and addressing whether to trust the information or not. In this paper we describe user requirements for modeling geospatial provenance.
