Description:
Abstract: The Alberta Human Footprint Monitoring Program (AHFMP) is collaboration between the following organizations: Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) The Alberta Biodiversity Monitoring Institute (ABMI) GeoDiscover Alberta Alberta Agriculture and Forestry (AAF) Alberta Energy (AE) Various non-government organizations. The goal of the AHFMP is to improve the accuracy of the human footprint data and to focus expertise from the various organizations on a single footprint product. Currently AEP and ABMI co-lead the program. The AHFMP stratifies footprint features into footprint sublayers based on logical groupings. Roads, oil and gas well pads, rail lines, gravel pits, agriculture fields are examples of sub layers. Where possible, the AHFMP will obtain features for these sub layers directly from authoritative sources. For example, harvest areas are provided by the Forest Management Branch of AAF. In these cases the data authority are responsible for the distribution of the sub-layer. Only when the features are not available from an authoritative source will the AHFMP create their own data. When this occurs, the AHFMP will work with subject matter experts (SMEs) from various organizations to ensure the features are digitized and attributed correctly. AEP has completed the following sub-layers in collaboration with ABMI. These are available for public use: Oil and Gas Well Pads (conventional and in situ) Road verges, surfaces and centre lines. Other sub-layers will be added as they are completed. ABMI is also working on several sub layers that will be available on their website.
Purpose: The purpose of the footprint AHFMP sub-layers are to provide organizations a value-neutral, well documented, scientifically defensible footprint features that reflect the original direct mechanical disturbance of various human activities. It is at the user's discretion to decide how they will interpret the impact (if any) of the footprint feature and how they will integrate the overlapping features. The interpretation of the functional footprint (impact of the footprint) and any indirect effect of footprint features are out of scope for the AHFMP.
Supplemental Information: User's guides and procedure documents have been created for all the footprint sublayers. These are distributed with the data. Staff within Alberta Environment and Parks and Alberta Agriculture and Forestry and can access the documents through the AHFMP SharePoint Site at: https://ext.esrd.alberta.ca/Strategy/AHFMP-Technical/SitePages/Home.aspx
