Case Study

Statistics Indonesia, locally known as BPS (Indonesian: Badan Pusat Statistik, literally Central Agency on Statistics), is a Non-Ministry Government Agency of Indonesia that is responsible for conducting statistical surveys. Its main customer is the government, but statistical data is also available to the public. Annual surveys include national and provincial socio-economics, manufacturing establishments, population and the labour force.

The Google Maps Platform helps Statistics Indonesia ease the problems faced by the agency in verifying census data or field surveys.

Resolving census officer work area problems

During the application development for Statistics Indonesia, the problems they faced when conducting a census or survey directly in the field were difficulties for field officers updating geographic data in the field and supervisors verifying updates in the back office due to inaccurate location data.

The application developed by Statistics Indonesia in collaboration with Google Maps Platform is named Wilkerstat. This application has several features that can make it easier for census or survey officers to do their work in the field.

“We chose Google Maps Platform for our Wilkerstat application because of the richness and accuracy of its data. Terralogiq helped us with identifying the right Google Maps APIs.”

Improve user experience


Since using Google Maps Platform, in addition to the accuracy and accuracy of the work area of the census officers, it has been obtained. The Statistics Indonesia also enhances the user experience by using an interactive map that allows you to customize the drag, pinch to zoom-in/zoom-out. Field officers did not take long to be able to operate the Wilkerstat application because they were familiar with Google Maps so there was minimal training in using the application as well.
