Who We Are

The GeoDiscover Alberta Program, a provincial partnership led by the ministry of Environment and Parks, is an initiative designed to provide quality, authoritative mapping data to citizens.  Alberta's geospatial data is brought together in one searchable catalog and can be viewed with an easy to use online mapping tool. Accessibility of this data to citizens makes it easier to make important decisions and better understand the province of Alberta.
