Global Census Archive GIS & Tabular Data (GCA-GIS)

Since the beginning of the 2000s, authorities around the world have increasingly made the census output available as geographic information system (GIS) formatted data. East View acquires the official outputs and employs a workflow to ensure the data can be used by several GIS platforms.

GIS census products include a geodatabase with administrative boundary vector data, shapefiles, census guide, original census documentation, and full attribute level metadata.
