History

Date Posted to GIS:
2009
  • 2008: Custom geographic information was acquired from Statistics Canada for the 2006 census year in 2008.
  • 2008: Population estimates were assigned to each residential building per neighbourhood in the DNV.
  • 2009: Point information was generated from the building polygon centroids and processed using raster spatial analysis tools. The resulting polygons depict population density ranges.
  • 2011: The dataset was recreated as a Raster Dataset representing the density of people per square kilometer. The dataset was generated using a 250 metre Kernal Density analysis and has a resolution of 5 metres.
