times for building capacity and organizational restructuring. 3.48. There is widespread recognition that it
is important for national statistical agencies to develop a continuing mapping capability to serve their
specialized mapping needs. Such a capability can make a major contribution to the population and
housing census and other elements of the national statistical system. A continuing mapping capability
within the statistical agency can also contribute to the analysis and presentation of census results. 3.49.
