Welcome to Open Data Centre for Alberta Urban Real Estate
The Open Data Centre for Alberta Urban Real Estate promotes data-driven local research most relevant to Albertans by providing high-quality and free-to-use neighbourhood/community level data for real estate industry professionals, researchers, policymakers, and the general public. Its data collection focuses on describing neighbourhoods and communities in urban Alberta. It integrates and aggregates data from many sources in one accessible place, allowing users to access the data anytime, anywhere. It currently covers the cities of Edmonton and Calgary, and will expand to the rest of Alberta gradually.
From the “Data Collection” tab, you will be able to explore the collection organized in the following categories: “Neighbourhood Profile”, “Properties and Property Assessment”, “Building Activity”, “Real Estate Market Activity”, “Amenities”, “Businesses”, and “Local Economy and Labour Market”. The data are presented both numerically and visually as overlays on maps of Edmonton and Calgary. You can select a specific neighbourhood/community for detailed information. From the “Download” tab, you will be able to download the data behind the maps. “Neighbourhood Report Card” provides a neighbourhood-by-neighbourhood overview.
We are an ongoing project aiming at generating public goods for the real estate industry, the broader research community, policy makers, as well as any Albertans who want to know more about their neighbourhoods. Towards that objective, we would like to hear your feedback and suggestions regarding how to expand our data collection. Please send your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
This project is made possible through a grant from the Alberta Real Estate Foundation.
