Offline DataGreater Short-horned Lizard Habitat
Greater short-horned lizard habitat dataset. Polygons were delineated based on observations from relevant databases in Alberta and suitable habitat (i.e., coulees, bearpaw shale dunes) with a 200m setback from the edge, as per the approved setback. Habitat Suitability Indices, Resource Selection Functions, and Ortho imagery were also consulted. Once a polygon was modified, its border was smoothed.
Offline DataOrd's Kangaroo Rat Habitat
This dataset contains Ord’s kangaroo rat habitat that must be avoided by land use activities. Polygons were delineated based on observations from relevant databases in Alberta and suitable habitat (i.e., sand dunes) with a 250m setback from observations, as per the approved setback. Once a polygon was modified, its border was smoothed.
