Hexagon Digitalizes and Democratizes the Census Process with Complete Census Management Solution

NORCROSS, Ga. – Hexagon’s Geospatial division is pleased to announce the launch of its total Population and Housing Census (PHC) management and workflow solution, HxGN Smart Census.

This new solution makes each phase of the census process smarter and more manageable. HxGN Smart Census pricing is agile, taking into account a nation’s surface area, population, and Human Poverty Index (HPI) to ensure that all  countries can participate in the digitalizing of their census processes.

HxGN Smart Census integrates traditional GIS functionality with a powerful workflow and workforce management tool to provide a total solution for census strategies: from pre-enumeration mapping, to digital enumeration, to post-enumeration dynamic mapping. It can be used on its own or integrated with a nation’s or organization’s existing GIS infrastructure.

The solution was developed in consultation with South African GIS experts, GeoSpace International, and has already been procured by South Africa and Botswana.

“With HxGN Smart Census, the census gets completed much faster, and the mobile application has made things much simpler for the field workers who are conducting the interviews,” said Shonisani Maranda, Senior GIS Officer at Statistics South Africa. “It also significantly increased the data quality, which allows us to achieve the UN sustainable development goals more easily.”

“Census data informs policy development, the running of public services, and the allocation of resources within a country. It is vital that all nations are able to utilize the right technology to ensure an accurate and effective census,” said Mladen Stojic, President of Hexagon’s Geospatial division. “HxGN Smart Census is capable of democratizing the collection of accurate demographic data, and transforming this information into insights to make informed decisions to shape Smart Change.”

More information about HxGN Smart Census is available at www.hexagongeospatial.com.
