Handbook on Geospatial Infrastructure in Support of Census Activities

The newly revised and renamed Handbook reflects the recommendations of the expert group meetings and regional workshops on geographic information systems (GIS) and census-mapping. It covers both managerial and operational needs in considerable detail. The Handbook addresses organizational and institutional issues that concern statistical agency heads and other managers; and it explicitly addresses technical and practical issues that concern census cartographers and takers. It also contains some examples of country practices in the application of GIS, global positioning systems (GPS) and digital mapping used in censuses contributed by some of these experts.

Hide / Show Abstract

The United Nations published the Handbook on Geographic Information Systems and Digital Mapping for use during the 2000 round of population and housing censuses. The 2000 Handbook has provided useful guidance in the field of census cartography. It needs updating and reviewing, however, to take into account recent developments in geospatial technologies and their applications for statistical exercises, in particular for population and housing censuses.
