Title: Livingstone-Porcupine Hills (LPH) Region Linear Disturbance (2017)
Dataset Publication Date: 2017-05-19
Abstract: This is a linear disturbance dataset for the Livingstone-Porcupine Hills region of Alberta. This dataset was created to support spatial analyses of linear disturbances in the Livingstone-Porcupine Hills region for the Alberta Environment and Parks report entitled "Linear Disturbances in the Livingstone-Porcupine Hills of Alberta: Review of Potential Ecological Responses" which can be found at All linear disturbances 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.

Data Quality Information
Scope (quality information applies to): Dataset
Data History: This dataset was created using a dataset that was compiled in 2016/2017 to inform the Draft Livingstone-Porcupine Hills Land Footprint Management Plan, which includes linear disturbance data from a number of sources. The primary data source used in this inventory of linear disturbance was the Government of Alberta's 1:20,000 base features dataset, including roads, pipelines, powerlines, cutlines, and trails. These were supplemented with additional data from several other sources, including Alberta Agriculture and Forestry Timber Operations, TrailNet, the Quad Squad, and the Great Divide Trail.
