Scholars GeoPortal is a geospatial discovery tool that provides access to large scale geospatial datasets that can be used for mapping or analysis. These datasets encompass both vector and raster data on a variety of topics such as land-use, transportation networks, census geography, aerial imagery, geology, and more. Furthermore, Scholars GeoPortal allows users to customize their data extracts by selecting the appropriate area of interest, temporal extent, file format, and coordinate system for their work.
The CHASS Canadian Census Analyser allows members of the University of Toronto research community to generate custom tables from the Census of Canada (1961-2016) and the National Household Survey (2011). The interface enables the selection of relevant variables and census geographies, providing access to data down to the dissemination area (DA) level. Census data can be incorporated into analytical and GIS software.
