Gatineau, March 14th 2012 - DBx GEOMATICS is proud to announce the release of a new on-line interactive map ( http://www.cartovista.com/2011CanadianPopulation.aspx?language=en) displaying the latest population statistics for Canada. This new high-quality cartographic publication showcases demographic data for the 5,253 Census subdivisions in the country, from coast to coast.
According to the 2011 Census, the Canadian population grew by 5.9% over the past five years. The innovative analytical tools of CartoVista enable the interactive discovery of these changes.
The 2011 and the 2006 population indicators are available as predefined themes. The end user can simply make a selection from the drop down menu to display either the percentage of population change or the population density (per km²). The map shows various thematic analyses at the municipal level, according to the geographic boundaries defined by Statistics Canada. It is possible to easily change the thematic settings, such as the number of ranges or the color palette, which will immediately update the map.
CartoVista offers interactive selection tools to analyze any area of interest in Canada. For example, by selecting all municipalities within a given radius, you are able to obtain a detailed data table. The selection can also be displayed as an animated histogram to view the indicators graphically and easily compare the different values.
The unique analytic framework provided by CartoVista assists in the exploration of the changes of Canada's population to obtain a better understanding of our demographic reality, in a business or sustainable development context.
