Digital BAS
Component ID: #ti1644647632

Digital BAS is designed for participants with experience using Geographic Information System (GIS) software. Participants use geoprocessing tools available in most GIS software to create change polygons for their boundary review.

The Census Bureau now offers a BAS Partnership Toolbox for use in Esri's ArcGIS that includes tools to help streamline workspace set up, perform file geoprocessing and quality control checks, and standardize BAS returns. Learn more about the BAS Partnership Toolbox.

The Digital BAS submissions must be submitted in formats described in the Digital BAS Respondent Guide and Tribal Digital BAS Respondent Guide. Participants must download and modify Census Bureau provided shapefiles in their own GIS software program. Please refer to the Digital BAS Respondent Guide and Tribal Digital BAS Respondent Guide for more information.
