Title: Castle Region Linear Footprint
Dataset Publication Date: 2017-05-01
Abstract: This is a linear footprint dataset for the Castle region of Alberta. This dataset was created to support spatial analyses of linear footprints in the Castle region for the Alberta Environment and Parks report entitled "Ecological Response to Human Activities in Southwestern Alberta: Scientific Assessment and Synthesis" which can be found at . The dataset compiles information from four of the most current Government of Alberta and public linear footprint data sources. All linear footprints are grouped into five categories using attribution from input data sources. These include: paved roads; gravel roads; unimproved roads, unclassified roads, and truck trails; pipelines and powerlines; and cutlines and trails.
