The Listing and Mapping Application (LiMA) and the Mobile Case Management system (MCM) achieve Authority to Operate (ATO) from the CIO of the U.S. Census Bureau.  These systems are now positioned to support field data collection during 2020 decennial census operations.

Gunnison leads the design and development of the Census Bureau’s Mobile Case Management (MCM) field data collection system.  MCM provides Census field workers with an integrated dashboard that surfaces to users all their mission-related tasks, assignments, and communications.  Using the MCM dashboard, users are able to plot out their day and work week using an innovative task organization toolset that includes an interactive map on which case assignments are plotted.

MCM interoperates with multiple legacy systems and allows the Bureau to continue to leverage its substantial investment in Blaise survey instruments while at the same time providing a framework into which other survey instrument technologies can easily fit.  Written almost entirely using the latest HTML5 technologies, the MCM system can pivot for use on multiple operating system platforms across multiple form factors, and is fully functional even when the device has zero cellular or wireless connectivity to the backend network.

Gunnison provides technical leadership supporting the development of the Census Bureau’s corporate Listing and Mapping Application (LiMA)— a mobile field data collection system that enables field workers to gather “on the ground” geospatial information in support of survey frame development. At its core, the LiMA system provides highly accurate updates to the Census Bureau’s Master Address File/Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing (MAF/TIGER) database. The LiMA system is an instrumental component of the Census Bureau’s suite of solutions deployed in support of the upcoming 2020 decennial census operations.
