Description:
Abstract: The Culture Point dataset is comprised of all the points that represent Hamlets, Localities and Townsites in Alberta. The formation of a Hamlet can occur if there are 5 or more buildings used as dwellings with a majority of which are on parcels of land smaller than 1850 square metres, has a generally accepted boundary and name and contains parcels of land that are used for non-residential purposes. Hamlet is an unincorporated community that can be designated by the council of Municipal District or Specialized Municipality within their boundaries, or by the Minister of Municipal Affairs within the boundaries of an Improvement District. Locality is an unincorporated place or an area with scattered population. Townsite is a federally administered village. The boundaries of rural classification of Locality and Townsite are often undefined.
Purpose: The Culture Point dataset provides users with GIS ready point representation of all Hamlets, Localities and Townsites in the province of Alberta, and is suitable for indexing or analysis purposes.
Supplemental Information: Culture Point contains Hamlet, Locality and Townsite. Hamlets are defined by Orders-in-Council but not the other two. Besides name, each Hamlet has a numeric identifier (i.e. 0709 for Fort MacKay) designated by Alberta Municipal Affairs documented in the Municipal Codes. Urban Service Area is excluded in the Culture Point even though the entity is listed in the same classification of 'Hamlet and Urban Service Area' within the Municipal Codes document. Locality and Townsite are derived from the Geographical Names System (GNS) database which captures the named features but not the precise location of each named feature. An unique alphanumeric number is assigned to each Locality and Townsite, within their own feature classification in alphabetical sequence. Altalis Ltd. is the designated agent of Alberta Data Partnerships Ltd. (ADP) who provides the monthly update of Hamlet point shape file to Alberta Environment and Parks, if there are changes commencing Nov. 2005. The Hamlet shape file is amalgamated with Locality and Townsite extracted from the GNS database to form Culture Point.

Process Description: Initial compilation as point coverage which included Settlement. There were 11 hamlets which did not have locations identified by ADP Municipal digital file and, therefore, were not captured within the layer. They were Gregoire Lake Estates, Heritage Pointe, Janvier South, Pelican Point, Pine Sands, Priddis Greens, Saprae Creek, Tillicum Beach, Village at Pigeon Lake, Wedgewood, and Welling Station.

Process Step:
Process Description: The latest MS Excel spreadsheet of the Municipal Codes is downloaded from the Alberta Municipal Affairs website (for Hamlet) and the GNS Place name MS Excel spreadsheet from Alberta Environment and Parks (for Locality and Townsite) is obtained from the Data Acquisition Unit. Both MS spreadsheets are converted to dBase III format. The Culture Point table (CULPT_NAME, CULPT_CODE and TYPE) of the Base Features (BF) Geoadministrative Areas (GA) Specification is updated according to the Altalis Ltd. Municipal Boundary Change Tracking spreadsheet for Hamlet and the GNS Place name database update identification for Locality and Townsite. The original source Hamlet Shape file received from Altalis is processed and merged with the calculated locational centroids (longitude and latitude) of the extracted Localities and Townsites from the GNS Place name database to generate a point layer. A formatted Point Shape file, preserved with the same original Hamlet spatial accuracy and calculated centroids of Localities and Townsites along with name normalized to upper/lower case, is attributed according to the Base Features Geoadministrative Areas Specification Culture Point table standard (i.e. CULPT_NAME, CULPT_CODE and TYPE). The TYPE is populated according to the feature classification. The formatted point shape attribute values are validated against the Municipal Codes and GNS Place name database.
