The interactive mapping site for Georia Toronto is designed as a demonstration web site. It shows a few examples of the types of data bases created by the project, and provides some ideas of the potential utility of GIS tools for exploring these kinds of data sets. 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 current listing of the project data sets see the Database Summary.
The Database summary shows the organization and content of the data sets. Each data set is linked to a dataset descriptioin page. It is organized according to geographic scale, into groupings of National, Regional, and Urban data. Within each section, subgroupings by region, or city are shown.
Detailed information about each data set is available by clicking on its title in the Database summary. This will link to a web page describing the data set. Also, links to external web sites related to the data will be provided here if applicable.
