The US-based OpenStreetMap community is one of the largest constituencies for the Census Bureau’s TIGER data. The 2007 data served as the base for OSM in the U.S., and OpenStreetMap continues to evaluate TIGER as a resource. Yet the role TIGER plays within the Census Bureau is not well understood by the OSM community.
This presentation will introduce TIGER in the context of Census Bureau operations, the rationale behind TIGER database design, and how the Census Bureau maintains TIGER.
