CANSIM OLAP View is an enhanced version of the multi-dimensional views offered by the CHASS Data Centre.
OLAP means On Line Analytical Processing, and it’s a way of analyzing large amounts of multi-dimensional data in real time by performing various operations on data dimensions.
Each view presents a CANSIM table as an OLAP cube.
CANSIM OLAP View @ CHASS features:

Data presented in easy to understand 2-dimensional table (rows and columns);
Ease in manipulating table’s dimensions;

Currently, CANSIM OLAP View is integrated with the dimensional and time-series views. A main start page and metadata will be provided in the future.
