Treaty Boundary

Abstract: The Treaty Boundary dataset is comprised of all the polygons that represent the historical treaty lands of Canada negotiated by First Nations over the years through treaty-making between 1867 - 1999. The approximate boundaries illustrate the traditional territories described in First Nations Statements of Intent to negotiate treaties which have been submitted to, and accepted.

Description:
Abstract: The Treaty Boundary dataset is comprised of all the polygons that represent the historical treaty lands of Canada negotiated by First Nations over the years through treaty-making between 1867 - 1999. The approximate boundaries illustrate the traditional territories described in First Nations Statements of Intent to negotiate treaties which have been submitted to, and accepted.
Purpose: The Treaty Boundary dataset provides users with GIS ready, but highly generalized polygonal representation of all Treaty areas in the province of Alberta. The boundaries are suitable for indexing purposes, but are not suitable for detailed analysis purposes.
Supplemental Information: Indian Treaties describe Canadian and Aboriginal relations in terms of political agreements.

Process Description: This layer of boundary is obtained by conversion from the 1:1 000 000 MicroStation file. The NAD83 1:1 000 000 MicroStation file is processed and converted into an ESRI layer. The layer is cleaned with all polygons closed and built without gaps or slivers. The Base Features GA Provincial Boundary is put and merged with the layer. Polygon attributes are populated according to the GA Specification table structure.

Process Description: Reconciled and conformed to ATS V4.1 Alberta Provincial Boundary which was compiled by Alberta Data Partnerships Ltd. (ADP) on behalf of the Government of Alberta (GOA). The ATS V4.1 Alberta Provincial Boundary is considered definitive for GOA use which supersedes all previous versions. The ATS V4.1 Alberta Provincial Boundary was compiled in 8th decimal place geographic coordinates (GCS_North_American_1983) and which was geoprocessed to NAD 1983 10 TM AEP Forest coordinate system, using ESRI ArcGIS application.
