This session will tell the story of how the Peel Region Census Information Hub was designed. It will include a description of the Census content included, using ArcGIS Online tools, and the lessons learned along the way. We will demonstrate the Hub and take a look a the backend of the ArcGIS Hub technology. Jamie Carrick from the CDP will also provide a live demonstration on mapping with CDP using QGIS.
