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 https://open.alberta.ca/publications/9781460135402 . 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. purpose: 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." This report provides an objective review and synthesis of published scientific data and information of relevance in examining the environmental impacts associated with human disturbance in the Castle region of southwestern Alberta, Canada. status: MD_ProgressCode: completed resourceMaintenance: MD_MaintenanceInformation: maintenanceAndUpdateFrequency: MD_MaintenanceFrequencyCode: notPlanned descriptiveKeywords: MD_Keywords: keyword: Castle region, Castle Provincial Park, Castle Wildland Provincial Park type: MD_KeywordTypeCode: place descriptiveKeywords: MD_Keywords: keyword: transportation, linear footprint, roads, trails, access type: MD_KeywordTypeCode: theme descriptiveKeywords: MD_Keywords: keyword: Downloadable Data thesaurusName: uuidref: 723f6998-058e-11dc-8314-0800200c9a66 resourceConstraints: MD_LegalConstraints: useConstraints: MD_RestrictionCode: license otherConstraints: Your use of this information will be governed by the terms of the Open Government Licence - Alberta (found at http://open.alberta.ca/licence), in force as of the date you accessed the information. resourceConstraints: MD_LegalConstraints: useLimitation: Distribution Liability: Under the terms of the Open Government Licence - Alberta, the information is licensed as is, and the Information Provider excludes all representations, warranties, obligations, and liabilities, whether express of implied, to the maximum extent permitted by law.

These included: the linear footprint dataset created for the Oldman Watershed Headwaters Indicator Project (2014); Global Forest Watch Canada's linear footprint dataset for the proposed Castle Parks (2016); the designated trail network dataset for the South Saskatchewan Region (2017); and Alberta Environment and Parks' trail inventory for the Castle Parks (2016). processStep: LI_ProcessStep: description: Four shapefiles were used to create a linear features dataset for the Castle Parks area to facilitate spatial summaries and analyses as a part of this scientific review:
                  
1) Linear features dataset created by Fiera Biological Consulting for the Oldman Watershed Headwaters Indicator Project:
                  
Data sources for this shapefile included 2012 Government of Alberta base features, a 2012 SRD interim dataset of cutlines, and unmapped linear features digitized by Fiera Biological Consulting using 2012 aerial imagery. See page 65 in the following report for more information:

2) Designated trail network for the South Saskatchewan Region (from AB Parks) 3) Global Forest Watch Linear features for the proposed Castle Parks (2012) 4) Trail inventory data from Laurier Lefebvre (2016)
                  
The linear features dataset created by Fiera Biological Consulting for the Oldman Watershed Headwaters Indicator Project was used as the starting dataset from which to build from.
                  
To include attributes for designated trails, all features from the master dataset that were designated trails were deleted. Designated trails with attribution (from the SSR designated trail network) were then joined to the master dataset.
                  
Additional unique linear features from Global Forest Watch Canada’s 2012 linear feature dataset were also added, along with key attributes, to the master dataset. This step was done manually to ensure that duplicate records were not introduced. If part of a segment was unique, the segment was split to only bring in the unique portion.
                  
If lines were adjacent, the ESRI basemap was used to visually inspect the data to determine if there were indeed parallel trails (e.g. a trail along a road).
                  
Finally, a topology check was performed on the master dataset to ensure that no duplicate records or overlapping features occurred. The final dataset was clipped to the Castle Parks boundary. source: LI_Source: description: Linear Footprints in the Oldman Watershed (2014): This dataset was created by Fiera Biological Consulting to inform the Oldman Watershed Headwaters Indicator Project. It includes features from: Alberta base features datasets (roads, pipelines, powerlines, rail lines, and cutlines); Government of Alberta OHV trail inventories; and linear features digitized by Fiera biological using 2.5 m resolution SPOT imagery.
