Block-face data


Is it possible to purchase block-face data?
There is an area of Montreal which is currently “gentrifying” – but it is part of an former industrial area and the DA is almost the entire CT – so the students from Urban Planning are hoping to get shape-files and block face data since 1996. Possible? Expensive??

I spoke with an Account-Executive and a Custom Product Consultant about your question and they indicated that it may be possible to purchase block-face data as a custom service if the area of interest has a population of 100 or more. The minimum cost would be $1200. Shape files would not be available but a representative point file could be provided. Please let me know if the students wish to look into this custom service option and I will refer you to an Account-Executive in our Montreal Regional Office.
