This data was obtained from statistics Canada’s 2011 Canadian census. The Canadian population datasets provided by eSpatial can be used to examine and analyse Canadian population and population density. These datasets can be used in conjunction with the eSpatial mapping software to create reports which investigate population levels across Canada. Reports can be generated which examine population and population density levels within Canada at the province/territory, census division and census metropolitan/agglomeration area geographical levels. You can also link and connect your own personal or commercial data to these datasets. Population levels across Canada can also therefore be analysed in relation to your own data. Below is an example of a simple Canadian population report. This report was designed by eSpatial to illustrate how to get the most out of the eSpatial mapping software and the data it provides.
A simple report was created using eSpatial mapping software and the Population (Canadian Provinces and Territories) dataset it provides. This report examines population and population density across Canada.
Provinces/territories are colored and categorized according to their population density. The graduated color scheme adopted by eSpatial mapping software allows for a quick and easy analysis of this data. It is evident from the map that yellow colored provinces/territories (e.g. Yukon) are the least densely populated areas with only 1 person Sq Km living in these. It is also apparent that the red colored provinces/territories (e.g. Ontario) are the most densely populated areas with more than 10 people per Sq Km living in these. It is also therefore easy to surmise that the population densities of the light orange (e.g. Newfoundland and Labrador), orange (e.g. Manitoba) and dark orange (e.g. Alberta) colored provinces/territories lie somewhere between 1 and 10 people per Sq Km respectively.
Firstly the topic reflected in the map can be changed quickly and easily simply by selecting the map this field option. Once this option has been selected the map will change to reflect the values in this topic (e.g. select the map this field option on Total Population to see these values mapped in relation to Canada’s provinces and territories). Secondly the report can be sorted in ascending or descending order. This is useful when trying to decipher quickly which areas have the highest/lowest values (e.g. select sort descending on Population Density per Sq Km to see the most densely populated province/territory). Finally the report can also be filtered by specific values. This is useful when trying to quickly search for areas with specific values (e.g. select filter results on Total Population so that provinces/territories with populations between 3 and 5 million are only displayed on the map).
