Good news! It is now very easy mapping Canada population centres. The territory boundary is now available in Mapline to use conveniently in your territory and data analyses. Why is this boundary so important to many sectors? The main reason is that population centres along with rural areas cover all of Canada. To be called a population centre (known for its abbreviation as POPCTR), an area must have a population density of 400 persons per square kilometre. In addition, it should have a population of at least 1,000. The criteria is based on the current census population count. Areas that fail to have this criteria are classified as rural areas.
With this territory boundary available to use, your Excel spreadsheet of location data will provide more pertinent information. By heat mapping, you can easily derive which population centres are classified as small, medium, and large. Another powerful mapping that can be used to give more insights on data analyses is the dot density map. Because of its immense design, it provides a quick solution for identifying spatial patterns.
Yes, that’s true! See for yourself how you can speed up mapping the population centre boundary in just less than a minute. Once your map is generated, you can immediately start with your analysis.
