In collaboration with the Società Geografica Italiana, the Albanian Institute of Statistics (INSTAT) was provided with technical support for the development and testing of new methods of data collection and map updating using ArcGIS Online, Collector and Operations Dashboard.
The purpose was to define the best methodology for the creation of the Statistical Building and Dwelling Register (BDR) to be used during the activities of the next census (CENSUS 2020). The pilot was run on 5 EAs using the Collector directly in the field, in a connected and disconnected environment. Through a remote dashboard it was possible to monitor the operators and contextualize the results.
This allowed the INSTAT to program a digital methodology of field data collection throughout the whole territory of Albania.
