The interactive mapping site for Georia Toronto is designed as a demonstration web site. Some ideas about the potential utility of GIS tools for exploring these kinds of data sets are shown here. The site also demonstrates live serving of web maps from GIS data, and the use of this technology for data publication and dissemination. Not all of the data sets collected for the project are represented in the web maps. For a full current listing of the project data sets see the Database Summary.
