CDATA 2001 - 2nd Release is coming soon

CDATA 2001 is a powerful desktop analysis package which uses MapInfo Professional Version 7 as the Geographic Information System (GIS) to map 2001 Census data. Developed jointly by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) and MapInfo Australia, CDATA 2001 gives you access to a wide range of census data.

The second release of CDATA 2001 will include the entire Basic Community Profile and Time Series Profile. It will also contain geographic boundaries, such as Urban Centres and Localities, Remoteness Areas and Statistical Districts.

The indicative date for the second release of CDATA 2001 is June 2003. A firm release date for this product will be announced shortly.
