This handbook provides technical and methodological information to facilitate the choice of suitable tools and procedures by countries in mapping activities. The main chapters consider GIS topics relevant to the preparation of the enumeration and post-enumeration activities, such as costs and benefits of a digital approach to census mapping and issues in planning and setting up digital census mapping programmes, GIS data base development and GIS applications during enumeration activities. The other main chapter focuses on post-enumeration mapping tasks and use of digital mapping in presenting, analysing and disseminating census data. This publication is part of a series of population census handbooks in support of implementation of the 2000 round of population and housing censuses.
