The implementation of this phase is important, where the outcome of this phase are topologically correct and up to date GIS layers with well-defined Enumeration Areas boundaries, that will be used for workload assignment and follow up, and measuring the surveyors’ performance in subsequent phases.
The demarcation phase is based on a geographical database that was recently updated during the preparatory phase of the census project, where the geographical layers were updated including the streets, buildings and landmarks.
