Mapping Census Data

Map of Devastating 2003 Heat Wave in the Netherlands Observed from MODIS Satellite. Mehdi Aminipouri (PhD Candidate in Geography at SFU)

This workshop will cover two very practical skill areas for ArcGIS users:

  • finding Canadian Census data that is accessible to university researchers,
  • and mapping it using ArcGIS software.

This workshop will guide you through tips for mapping large amounts of census data quickly and for working with spatial patterns and relationships among census variables.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • find and choose Census data required for their research;
  • extract relevant Census data from Census files;
  • understand the census spatial units;
  • map census data using census spatial units.

Software: ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Desktop (participants will not need their own computer)
