US Census 2010 Address Canvassing Project

From the ESRI UC 2009 Plenary Session.

US Census Chief Geographer- Mr. Timothy Trainor - announced the successful completion of the US Census 2010 Address Canvassing Project - "by far the largest deployment of mobile GIS in the World ".
The Address Canvassing project utilised over 140,000 enumerators and canvassed 145 million addresses in every street of the U.S.A. - HUGE numbers!
As a testament to the strength of the project planning and execution , which included ArcPad and the ArcPad team over many years, Mr Trainor announced that the very tight schedule of 11 weeks had been not only met but better by 7 days.
