The first group of updated Canadian databases for this year has now been released. It contains key data from our demographic, behavioural, location and geographic categories. This update includes 2019 vintages of the following data products:
Opticks Powered by Numeris
Opticks Powered by Vividata
Spectra Trade Areas
Please note: Several significant changes have been made to DemoStats to add new capabilities and incorporate more data from the 2016 Census. To learn more about these changes, please refer to this page on our community site.
Accessing New Data in ENVISION
To access the updated data in ENVISION, please create and activate a 2019 workspace. While you will continue to have access to your previous workspaces, you will only be able to access the updated data through the new 2019 workspace. To learn how to create a new workspace, please log-in to ENVISION and follow this Walk-Through tutorial. Release notes, variables lists and other supporting documentation are available on the Environics Analytics website .
Accessing New Data Through the SFTP
If you receive these databases outside ENVISION, the standard data are now available in your SFTP account. Custom data orders will take longer. You will receive an email notification once those data files are ready for download. Release notes, variables lists and other supporting documentation are included with your data delivery.
If you’d like more information about this update, please contact your Environics Analytics representative, email our support team at email@example.com or reach us through our community page at community.environicsanalytics.com.
