German term or phrase: eingemessenen Datensätze
"Für das Oberallgäu liegen in dem Bereich touristische „points of interest" mittlerweile über 3700 eingegebene Datensätze vor. Für das Berchtesgadener Land sind 7170 Datensätze eingegeben und davon 5640 georeferenziert.. Alle eingemessenen Datensätze, sowohl die points of interest, als auch die Datensätze zum öffentlichen Personennahverkehr sind als direkter Mehrwert anzusehen... {usw. usf.}"

This is about a tourism data base that is being put together, also including geographic location info, even some GPS data.

Whaddya think -- should I say
"All surveyed/examined/studied/reviewed data entries..." I presume they mean they’ve statistically/geographically surveyed the "POI’s"...?

Anybody have a better term than the ones I’m cogitating over?

(Later the text briefly refers to "GPS/Einmessen im Gelände" -- any takers there too? No other context is given. = "Geographical survey"?)

Thank you all!

[GPS] surveyed data points
Explanation:
Singular: surveyed datum
That's what I'd use. I imagine that the surveys were done via GPS, so you might also say "GPS surveyed".

For the GPS/Einmessen im Gelände, I'd use "GPS survey in the field" or maybe "GPS field survey" (as in one of the references below). Just a thought.

Check out some of these references (among many), maybe you can find something helpful in there.

Scientists at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) use a variety of techniques and instruments to measure ground deformation on volcanoes in Hawai`i, including GPS. Continuously recording GPS receivers are operating at 16 sites on Kilauea, Mauna Loa, and Mauna Kea volcanoes; data are sampled every 30 seconds and downloaded once a day to calculate one-day average positions. In addition, more than 100 other sites are surveyed intermittently using GPS receivers; each survey or data point is compared with previously sampled data to determine accumulated ground deformation and to calculate strain rates or velocities.

6 What is the projection of our GPS surveyed data?
The GPS can record coordinates in geographic projection (i.e. latitude, longitude, elevation) or UTM projection. The former projection is preferred because it is easier to transform to any other projections. The datum is World Geodetic System 1984 (WGS-84). Most software, such as ARC/INFO does not support WGS84 directly. But the Northern American Datum 1983 (NAD83) is, for all practical purpose, equivalent to WGS-84. In the next few years, maps published by the U.S. Geological Survey will use NAD83. NAD 83 is widely supported by most GIS software including ARC/INFO

Thank you all for your kind efforts!

To give you "enough" context, I would have had to make you read this entire section on how they’re building their tourism data base, which goes on for about 5 pp. So perhaps my example led you to believe it was "hoch Wissenschaft", which it is only in the context of brief GPS usage.
Sorry if my example led you to think otherwise.

I eventually went with a combination of answers -- thanks especially to Ulrike and Jason! -- so I wish I could award points to most of you.

Thanks again for your time and trouble! You’ve eased my mind (and my efforts) considerably.

Alle eingemessenen Datensätze


Explanation:
In talking about the information in a database and based on their use of "sowohl", it seems as if they are not only using the surveyed GPS data, but also other information in order to show surplus profits (Mehrwert). In this context, perhaps the best translation of "alle eingemessenen Datensätze" would be "all compiled data" in regards to the information found in the database.

surveyed records


Explanation:
Datensatz - record
einmessen - vermessen - survey

thus I would say surveyed records

im Deutschen handelt es sich um eine für diese Sprache typische logische Abkürzung, logisch falsche Wortverbindung
im Englischen kann man es 1 zu 1 genau so sagen, oder freier formulieren
vielleicht z.B. survey records

Ich hoffe es hilft.

Explanation:
in this case, I agree with 'surveyed'. In the general engineering/technical sense, 'einmessen' means 'calibrate' [by means of measurement].
