CityViz Data Sources

CityViz data platform solves some of the major challenges in using data to support economic development activities, including collecting data from various data sources into a central repository and automatically keeping it all up to date. Data sources include Statistics Canada, provincial, regional and municipal open data, CMHC, and more. It is also possible to upload custom data provided by client organizations, and even integrate proprietary 3rd party data.

All datasets that are included in the application out of the box are automatically updated for client organizations by using automated procedures. As such, they do not require manual intervention by either the client organization or CityViz technical support. This keeps both CityViz Data Portal and CityViz Embeddable Widgets updated whenever underlying data is updated.
