Description:
Abstract: This dataset contains air monitoring stations for the province of Alberta. Monitoring stations measure the outdoor ambient air quality. Data from a number of stations, collected over time are used to determine air quality in a particular area. Several different methods and techniques are used but continuous and passive monitoring equipment are commonly used in Alberta.All monitoring data undergoes quality control and quality assurance procedures. The data is then posted to the Alberta Ambient Air Data Management System (AAADMS) web site at http://www.casadata.org/ (CASA Data Warehouse).
Purpose: The purpose of this dataset is to enable users to view the locations of ambient air monitoring stations within Alberta.

Horizontal Positional Accuracy:
Horizontal Positional Accuracy Report: The Air Monitoring Station data has been aquired through various sources and data collection techniques. Some station data location has been given directly by the air quality management zone. Other stations have been recorded using GPS recievers or have been converted to a spatial location using the legal description.
