The 2020 Census incorporated the use of geographic information and systems into every phase of its design. This presentation will showcase several of the technologies used in support of the 2020 Census, including satellite imagery to detect housing unit change, interactive mapping applications to conduct outreach and monitor operational status, and methodologies used to disseminate the 2020 Census data. This presentation will also share several of the Census Bureau's plans for building on the 2020 Census success to modernize geographic operations for the future.
