This dataset was created to support spatial analyses of linear disturbances in the Upper North Saskatchewan and Upper Red Deer River Basins for the Alberta Environment and Parks report entitled “Ecological response to land use and human activities in the eastern slopes of Alberta’s Rocky Mountains: A scientific assessment”. This is a polyline dataset covering the Upper North Saskatchewan and Upper Red Deer River Basins of Alberta, Canada. It shows linear features present in ~2016/2017. Linear disturbances 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.The dataset compiles information from five of the most current Government of Alberta and public linear disturbance data sources: these are: Alberta Base Features (AB BF) (Alberta Environment and Parks, 2018), 2017 Red Deer – North Saskatchewan Trail data (RDNS Regional Informatics Unit, Alberta Environment and Parks, November 2017), 2017 Pipeline data (Ecosystem Services and Science Section, Alberta Environment and Parks March 2018), Jasper National Park Official Trails, and Banff National Park Official Trails (obtained from geomatics coordinators for each National Park, July 2018 and available through the Government of Canada Open data license agreement). purpose: This dataset was created to support spatial analyses of linear disturbances in the Upper North Saskatchewan and Upper Red Deer River Basins region for the Alberta Environment and Parks report entitled “Ecological response to land use and human activities in the eastern slopes of Alberta’s Rocky Mountains: A scientific assessment” available at: https://open.alberta.ca/publications/9781460140697. This report provides an objective review and synthesis of published scientific data and information of relevance in examining the environmental impacts associated with human activities Upper North Saskatchewan and Upper Red Deer River Basins, Alberta, Canada. status: MD_ProgressCode: completed pointOfContact: CI_ResponsibleParty: organisationName: Alberta Environment and Parks, Government of Alberta positionName: Science Branch, Environmental Monitoring and Science Division contactInfo: CI_Contact: phone: CI_Telephone: voice: 1 (780) 2297288 address: CI_Address: deliveryPoint: 9888 Jasper Avenue NW; 10th Floor city: Edmonton administrativeArea: Alberta postalCode: T5J5C6 country: Country: CA electronicMailAddress: EMSD-Info@gov.ab.ca onlineResource: CI_OnlineResource: linkage: URL: http://aep.alberta.ca/ protocol: HTTP function: CI_OnLineFunctionCode: information hoursOfService: 0815 - 1630, Monday to Friday contactInstructions: Call or e-mail during regular business hours. role: CI_RoleCode: publisher resourceMaintenance: MD_MaintenanceInformation: maintenanceAndUpdateFrequency: MD_MaintenanceFrequencyCode: notPlanned descriptiveKeywords: MD_Keywords: keyword: Bighorn Backcountry, Alberta, Rocky Mountains type: MD_KeywordTypeCode: place descriptiveKeywords: MD_Keywords: keyword: transportation, linear disturbance, linear footprint, roads, trails, access, anthropogenic, human footprint type: MD_KeywordTypeCode: theme descriptiveKeywords: MD_Keywords: keyword: Downloadable Data thesaurusName: uuidref: 723f6998-058e-11dc-8314-0800200c9a66 resourceConstraints: MD_LegalConstraints: accessConstraints: MD_RestrictionCode: otherRestrictions otherConstraints: To access the data you must agree to the terms of the Open Government Licence - Alberta found at http://open.alberta.ca/licence 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, in force as of the date you accessed the information , found at http://open.alberta.ca/licence 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 or implied, to the maximum extent permitted by law.

Jasper National Park Official Trails (2017); Banff National Park Official Trails (2017). Trial data for the National Parks were obtained from the geomatics coordinators for each both Banff and Jasper National Park (July 2018) and are available through the Government of Canada Open data license agreement. Four datasets from the Alberta Base Features were used to calculate linear disturbance density: Roads, Railway, Powerline, and Cutline trails. Using the Roads dataset, three linear feature categories were derived by splitting roads into three category types: Paved, Gravel and Unimproved/Unclassified/Truck trails. The paved roads class includes the subcategories: divided paved roads, 1, 2, and 4-lane undivided paved roads, and interchange ramps. The gravel roads class includes the subcategories 1 and 2 lane gravel roads. The unimproved/unclassified/truck trails category includes the subcategories: unimproved roads, truck/trails, winter roads and ford/winter crossings, and driveways. Power lines were merged into a single feature class with the 2017 pipelines dataset and dissolved to remove duplicate features. A new cutline/trails class was created by consolidating the Cutline/Trails category from the AB BF data with the 2017 recreational trails data obtained for the Red Deer – North Saskatchewan region as well as the Banff and Jasper National Parks Official Trails. To ensure no duplicate lines were retained, the recreational trails layer was first erased by the cutline trails layer and then again by the roads layer using a 30 m cluster tolerance. The twice-erased recreational trails layer was then merged with the original AB BF cutline/trails layer and dissolved to remove any remaining duplicate features to create the final ‘cutline/trails’ layer.
