Maptel was honored to be named National Winner for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the recent Asia Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards. Maptel’s award was presented by Mr. Brian Nicholls, General Manager, AAMHatch Pty Ltd in recognition of their success with their mobile GIS product, ArcPad®, being chosen for the United States Decennial Census in 2010.
The US Census Bureau has appointed Harris Corporation of Florida as the system integrator and prime contractor to develop and implement an automated system for field data collection. Harris will use the ArcPad mobile GIS platform supplied by ESRI Inc. to enable the field personnel to capture and record data in near real time.
Known as the FDCA program the system will support upto 500,000 field 'enumerators' who will follow up and collect survey data from households that do not return their census forms.
