Using satellite imagery and Geo-spatial data for the census of agriculture and the census of building and housing

The NSO Mongolia has planned to conduct its first agricultural by-census in 2017. For this time around, we are planning to use satellite imagery to identify crop types and estimate the production. In addition to this project, we are also planning to pilot the Census of Building and Housing by integrating different Geo-spatial database with administrative registration database and population database.

Project Objective:

Pilot intended to go to production to supplement existing data, For the production of statistics

Project Outcomes:

Satellite imagery will supplement the field data collection and if successful, potentially replace the field data collection procedure. Successful integration of Geo-spatial database with administrative registration database will replace field data collection for the census of building and housing and furthermore, for the population and housing census.
