The US Census Bureau has implemented an image based In-Office Address Canvassing Interactive Review process to reduce the amount of In-Field Address Canvassing for the 2020 Census. The experience gained from the in-office program has led to a prototype ArcPy geo-processing tool, utilizing high-resolution aerial imagery, LiDAR and ArcGIS tools to automatically identify structures and compare their location to existing Census Bureau GIS features and information.
