Kudos to United Way Ottawa for their visualization of ONS data that shows the population of Ottawa is aging. A finalist in Esri Canada’s App of the Month contest in October 2017, United Way used a story map swipe to compare two maps of Ottawa. One map displays the percent of the population aged 65 and older in 2010. The second map displays the percent of the population aged 65 and older in 2025. By swiping between the two maps users of the app can readily see the change in this population over time. See for yourself by navigating to this story map and here is more information about United Way Ottawa and their campaign to improve the lives of Ottawa’s most vulnerable seniors.
