Abstract: This cartographic quality series of 1:1 000 000 scale colour maps cover the provincial extent of Alberta. The primary provincial base map displays the Alberta Township System (ATS), major hydrographic features, municipalities, major roads, railways and select geoadministrative features (parks, reserves, etc.). In addition to the primary provincial base map, this series includes various themes that overlay the primary base map. At this scale 1.0cm on the map represents 10km on the ground. Each map covers an area of 10 degrees of longitude and 11 degrees of latitude. Generally these maps are printed on 78.74 x 129.54cm (31" x 51") paper size. This product can be viewed on a computer, printed or be plotted in part or in whole. To maintain the original map scale when printing the entire product, it must be plotted on a plotter that can use paper that is a minimum width of 82 cm (32 inches). The update of this map series is based on the provincial Base Features Access Update Program that has an approximate 5 year update cycle. Refer to the 'time period of content' in the metadata record for currency of each map product. Each individual map sheet is provided in Adobe .pdf format within a downloadable WinZip file.
