Description:
Abstract: This dataset is produced for the Government of Alberta and is available to the general public. Please consult the Distribution Information of this metadata for the appropriate contact to acquire this dataset. Physical Land Classification (PLC) is a mapping system that was designed to describe the landscape in terms of landform, soils, drainage and slope. It is a hierarchical system that captures physiographic information at the following levels: Region - 1:3 000 000 or smaller Section - 1:1 000 000 to 1:3 000 000 District - 1:500 000 to 1:1 000 000 Geomorphic System - 1:100 000 (can range from 1:50 000 to 1:250 000) Geomorphic Unit - 1:10 000 to 1:50 000 There are some variations in this hierarchy for individual study areas. The Land Classification Group (Resource Inventory Section), Alberta Energy and Natural Resources, adopted the initial Physical Land Classification methodology in 1977 to meet the needs of resource planning and management agencies. Many aspects of the methodology were developed from landform mapping schemes used by the System of Soil Classification for Canada (1976). The PLC system is essentially a geomorphic interpretation and classification system based on the principles of the inherent properties of the land and its forms. Physical Land Classification (PLC) maps have been created largely during the 1980s and 1990s as part of a program to acquire background information for Integrated Resource Plans along the eastern slopes and across northern Alberta. The data were generally mapped at the geomorphic unit level using the 1:50 000 scale National Topographic System maps as a base. The PLC hardcopy maps were scanned, georeferenced, rectified, cleaned, vectorized, merged and attributed to form GIS polygons. The polygons are attributed for parent geologic material, landform / surface expression, modifying process, slope, texture, soil taxonomy and soil drainage. This classification system was designed to enhance and replace the Canada Land Inventory (CLI) and Alberta Landform Inventory (ALI) Landform classification systems. There is more attribution associated with PLC mapping than with ALI / CLI Landform mapping. There is some overlap with the ALI / CLI Landform maps but much of the PLC mapping was conducted in areas not covered by ALI / CLI Landform maps. PLC mapping is considered to be more reliable than ALI / CLI Landform mapping as field checking was more extensive.
Purpose: The objective of the PLC mapping program is to delineate relatively homogeneous land units, based on their physical characteristics, and to describe these units such that their suitability for various land uses could be assessed in a standardized manner using a documented methodology. PLC information is input into wildlife habitat suitability, terrain sensitivity, groundwater vulnerability, agricultural capability and forest capability assessments.
Supplemental Information: It should be noted that the PLC landform mapping projects are broad reconnaissance type inventories and are designed for planning rather than management. These maps will not provide the detailed information required for intensive management of individual parcels of land, nor for land use planning in small watersheds, local government units or other small areas. The attributes are not generally listed in detail but cross-references have been given as a source for the descriptions of values. Attributes that have not been described in a cross-reference are listed in detail within the metadata.

Attribute Value Accuracy Information:
Attribute Accuracy Report: The attribute accuracy is unknown. Some ground truthing was performed at the time of data collection but the results were never compiled into a formal accuracy assessment. There are a number of fields that were captured at the time of digital conversion to identify problems in the datasets. Problems with the PLC code, missing polygon labels and double labels are all identified. Polygons are also flagged where there appears to be an illegal or incomplete code on the original hardcopy map. An .AML program was used to check the attributes for logical inconsistencies. Inconsistencies and omissions were corrected based on available information contained in: the original PLC maps, digital orthophotos, DEM derived slope maps and Ecological Land Classification maps of similar scale. Resolved issues include: - Illegal codes were found on the hardcopy PLC maps. The published hardcopy PLC maps also had many missing textures, especially for underlay parent materials. Data mismatches included: i) Texture and parent material mismatches; ii) Slope and surface form mismatches; iii) Soil taxonomy and soil drainage mismatches; and iv) Soil taxonomy and parent material (mineral versus organic) mismatches. These errors were fixed during conversion to GIS format. - Missing or invalid textures were filled in based on similar polygons located nearby which had the same parent material and similar soil taxonomy. - Missing, invalid or incomplete soil taxonomy for mineral soils were fixed based on similar polygons located nearby which had the same parent material and similar soil texture. - Missing parent materials were filled in based on soil textures, surface form, soil taxonomic classification, remote sensing imagery and similar polygons located nearby. - Slope and surface form mismatches were fixed based on remote sensing imagery and percent slope maps derived from digital elevation models (DEMs). - Surface forms and slopes have been updated to resolve inconsistencies: i.e. steep surface forms must have slopes >70%. - Slopes appeared overestimated along river valleys compared to available DEMs and orthophotos. These "steep" slopes have been updated by using the Base Features DEM but this should be confirmed using detailed LiDAR. - Soil taxonomy and soil drainage mismatches were resolved in favour of Gleyed subgroups having "Imperfect" soil drainage and Gleysols having "Poor" to "Very poor" soil drainage. (References: Canadian System of Soil Classification, 3rd Edition; and "Estimation of Drainage Classes for Deep Soils" as found in various field guides produced by Natural Resources Canada). Soils in Fibrisol, Mesisol and Humisol great groups of the Organic order were classified as having "Poor" to "Very poor" soil drainage, unless there was evidence to the contrary. Domed bogs and plateaus can have "Imperfect" soil drainage, whereas Organic Cryosols, Folisols and drained peatlands can have "Imperfect" to "Moderately well" drained soils. (Reference: Moisture subclasses as applied to organic soils, Canadian System of Soil Classification, 3rd Edition). Unresolved issues include: - In the original PLC maps, wet areas were often mapped as undifferentiated organics (O) with a default texture description of mesic (M) and the soil taxonomic classification was usually missing or incomplete. These wetlands may range from mineral soils with or without peaty overlays less than 40 cm thick, to organic soils with or without a terric layer within 160 cm of the soil surface. If an organic layer is present, it usually has a fibric degree of decomposition near the soil surface, grading to mesic or humic at greater depths. - Some of the photo-interpreted slope classes and proportions have been found to be inaccurate. These slope classes and proportions need to be reviewed and updated based on high resolution DEM derived slope maps, remote sensing imagery and site inspections. - Modifying processes were rarely included in the original PLC map symbols, even though evidence of such processes (Avalanched, Failing, Eroded/Channelled, Kettled, Gullied) is visible in air-photos, remote sensing imagery and in the scrolled pattern of stream channels in the Base Features Single Line Network. - Fluvial and glacio-fluvial parent materials labelled as having a coarse fragment content of 'g' without a texture (i.e. gravel with no fines < 2 mm) may actually be gravelly sand or gravelly loamy sand (gS, gLS).
Logical Consistency Report: The maps associated with a particular study area were usually captured as individual map sheets and were not necessarily edge-matched between map sheets or between adjacent study areas. The data were loaded as individual datasets by study area so gaps and overlaps exist between the datasets. The topology of the classified datasets was checked in ArcInfo to ensure that it was sound. Arc and node topology builds cleanly with no errors.
Completeness Report: PLC mapping exists for only a portion of the province. There is continuous mapping for much of the eastern slopes but otherwise the mapping is discontinuous. There are currently 43 PLC studies at a variety of scales, although most study areas were mapped as geomorphic units at a scale of 1:50 000. Only 11 PLC maps have been converted into GIS-ready format. An additional two maps have been georeferenced and rectified.
Positional Accuracy:
Horizontal Positional Accuracy:
Horizontal Positional Accuracy Report: Each map sheet was georeferenced using the following quality control standards: - There was a minimum of 100 control points distributed evenly across each .tif image. The control points were based on locations in the Base Features 1:50K NTS, ATS, Access, Facilities and Hydrography. Intersection points were preferred and the control points included the four (4) corners of each map sheet. - The overall RMSE for all control points is no greater than 35 metres and individual control point rarely have an error greater than 70 metres. - Features in the georeferenced / rectified .tif images line up within 50 metres of the corresponding features in: i) the Base Features Alberta Township System; ii) the Base Features National Topographic System 1:50 000 polygon arcs; iii) the Base Features Access and Facilities lines (roads, power lines, pipe lines, railways, cut lines, trails, etc); iv) perennial waterbodies in the Base Features Hydrography Polygons; and v) stream channels in the Base Features Single Line Network. A number of the feature types in the Base Features Hydrography Polygons are included as PLC polygons. These water polygon shorelines and glacier boundaries have a horizontal accuracy that varies from +/- 100 metres to +/- 5 metres depending upon the original source of the line work. The horizontal accuracy for the PLC polygons is unknown. As the polygons are not homogeneous and represent a combination of a number of different landform features, the placement of the polygon boundaries is very subjective. The accuracy of the line placement is best described in terms of attribute accuracy. Unresolved issues include: - A few polygons may have been missed during the initial digitizing/scanning. - Slivers along stream channels: Fluvial polygon should include sediments deposited inside the U shaped bend of meandering stream channels. Upland polygons should end at the boundary of river polygons, unless it clearly continues as an island inside the river. - Polygon boundaries could be updated for anthropogenic features such as gravel pits. - Polygon boundaries could be improved in areas of abrupt slope changes: e.g. valleys, gullies
