New business data - SimplyMap at the library


New business data - SimplyMap at the library

We have a brand new business database at the library - SimplyMap

SimplyMap is a web-based mapping application allowing you to interact with complex data. It enables non-technical and advanced users to quickly create professional thematic maps and reports using powerful demographic, business, and marketing data taken from the Canadian Census, Canadian Survey of Household Spending and the Dun & Bradstreet Canadian Company Database.

It replaces two of our existing databases: PCensus and Million Dollar Directory. The majority of their capabilities have been combined in SimplyMap and now you can search data on consumers and businesses all in the same place.

SimplyMap is only available for use within the library at the moment but we are working to open up access. Watch this space!
