2020 Census Geography Partnership Program Updates
Session 1

Accurate geographic data is the foundation of conducting a complete and accurate Decennial Census. Census Bureau Geography Partnership Programs are an opportunity to collaborate with state and local governments to improve our geographic data. The LUCA program and the New Construction Program give participants an opportunity to improve the accuracy of our master address file. The PSAP (Participant Statistical Areas Program) allows participants to review and update statistical geographies, such as census tracts and block groups. The BAS (Boundary and Annexation Survey) provides governments the opportunity to review and update legal boundaries, names and governmental status. The SAID (Spatial, Address and Imagery Data) Program allows partners to provide address point files, street centerline files and imagery data to our database. These programs are at different stages and we will be discussing each program in greater detail.

Educators in a variety of disciplines, from across RI, learned how to use of GIS to answer questions, create storymaps, and online surveys to enhance their educational practice using Geospatial Technology.
