Filtering provides a means for users to select what data is displayed by setting conditions. This is done to reduce the amount of information in a large database or table of data to just the part that the user wants to see. For example, in a dataset containing information about a general population the user can choose to filter by gender or age group. Multiple filters can be applied.

Census data is an official count of dwelling units and population within those units. The data is physically collected and may be supplemented with other information such as the periodic age/gender distribution data. This additional data allows for better interpretation of the population statistics. A community district is a fixed boundary within Calgary, created by and for the Corporation.

Charts provide a means of displaying data graphically in order to make it easier to understand. Various types of charts can be created from a dataset including bar charts, column charts, pie charts, line graphs, bubble maps and tree maps.
