1Spatial To Be Used in USA 2020 Decennial Census

1Spatial has signed a contract extension with the U.S. Census Bureau. Following the success of the initial contract to supply 1Validate & 1Integrate licences, the contract extension will focus on the provision of software licences and services in preparation for the 2020 Decennial Census and to widen the use of the technology within the organisation.

Through a long term engagement with the U.S. Census Bureau, 1Spatial have prototyped and designed an automated conflation process to carry out geospatial data conflation.  This delivers a phased roll-out for 1Spatial’s Validate & Integrate software.  1Spatial’s agile approach to software development will enable the Census team to gain valuable interactive operational experience and work out efficiencies as the system develops.

1Spatial’s technology is enterprise-enabled for maximum efficiency and scalable to provide high performance, whilst maintaining flexibility.  It has been designed to protect investment by enabling operators to capture data within a spatial rules engine and apply the knowledge gleaned consistently throughout the organisation.

“This is a large, complex and mission-critical spatial database that is growing at 10-15% annually,” explained Tim Trainor, Geography Division Chief at US Census Bureau.  “There are huge demands from the user community for spatial and temporal accuracy and quality, together with stringent processing deadlines. We believe that 1Spatial’s solution will meet our expectations to build an agile, service orientated architecture, whilst reducing our storage requirements”.

Marcus Hanke, CEO at 1Spatial said, “We are delighted that the U.S. Census Bureau has already benefited from the enormous value our solution can provide. The new services and software provided by 1Spatial will enable the U.S. Census Bureau to gain maximum returns on its investment, supporting increasing growth in the mission-critical spatial database, in preparation for the 2020 decennial census.  Our strong working relationship and proven ability to support National Mapping Agencies’ data management tasks, means that 1Spatial’s technology, services and specialist consultancy, can provide a real-world understanding of the challenges and opportunities faced in carrying out a Census in such a vast country”

The software and services will be utilised by the Geography Division as part of a new initiative in preparation for the 2020 Decennial Census. The Geography Division maintains the geographic base data upon which US censuses and surveys are tabulated.  The data is stored in a Master Address File (MAF)/Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing (TIGER) database MTDB).

The Geographic Support System (GSS) Initiative is an integrated program of improved address coverage, continual spatial feature updates and enhanced assessment and measurement, which supports a targeted approach.  The Address Canvassing operation will commence during 2019, to get ready for the 2020 decennial census.

The data from the 2020 decennial census will be used to:

  • determine the distribution of Congressional seats to states
  • make decisions about type of community services to provide
  • distribute more than $400 billion in Federal funds to local, state and tribal governments each year
  • provide Age Search information; for use for qualifying benefits, for example.
