Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Region

Abstract: The Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Region dataset is comprised of all the polygons representing Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Regions in Alberta. Alberta Justice and Solicitor General, Government of Alberta, manages the Fish and Wildlife enforcement services to provide the public and other government departments' information regarding the locations of Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Regions throughout the province.

Abstract: The Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Region dataset is comprised of all the polygons representing Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Regions in Alberta. Alberta Justice and Solicitor General, Government of Alberta, manages the Fish and Wildlife enforcement services to provide the public and other government departments' information regarding the locations of Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Regions throughout the province.
Purpose: The Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Region dataset provides users with GIS ready polygonal representation of all Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Regions in the province of Alberta, and is suitable for indexing or analysis purposes.
Supplemental Information: Alberta Justice and Solicitor General and Fish and Wildlife Enforcement staff determined the boundaries. National Parks are excluded from the layer. The dataset was compiled by the Operations Division - Red Deer and North Saskatchewan Region. The Information and Data Provisioning Services, Informatics Branch, Corporate Services Division provided compilation guidelines and attribution standard as well as assisted the metadata compilation.

Process Step:
Process Description: The Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Region boundary was taken from the existing Fish and Wildlife Management Area boundary as the base. The copied boundary was revised through selection and addition of available Base Features Source Data (described below) in an edit environment to assemble the Geoadministrative Areas (GA) boundary. The GA boundary built uses Base Features (BF) Source Data which includes layers of Alberta Township System (ATS), Hydrography, Hypsography and Access. In cases where BF Source Data does not exist, Alberta Data Partnerships (ADP) Cadastral Source Data including block, lot, plan, ownership and right-of-way are used. ATS data layer is considered to be the foundation by which all other Source Data should be registered with when the GA boundary layer is compiled. The Cadastral Source Data maintained by ADP is used in the hierarchy order of block, lot, plan and right-of-way; regardless which version it is. The ADP cadastral representation of ATS and Hydrography is not used. If none of the above Source Data is available and the defining document refers a specific elevation or contour, Hypsography contour data is used. If no source arc for the particular contour or elevation exists, interpolation of the contours or elevation graphically is obtained by averaging between successive contours on either side of the range of elevation values. If the defining document describes a mountain peak, interpretation of the contours to determine the highest point of the peak is determined or in certain cases a spot height point in the Hypsography cartographic layer is used to identify the peak. If the defining document describes a boundary segment as Height-of-Land (HOL), HOL data is captured by digitization or graphical construction. In cases if the GA boundary is described, but no Source Data is available except from a digital reference file provided by data authority, with data authority's expressed permission, arcs are copied from the digital reference file. Segments of the boundary which adjoin to Provincial Boundary or National Park, arcs are copied from these 2 layers to define the GA boundary so that the layer does conform to these 2 key layers. Once all the Source Data has been copied and put into the edit environment, Constructed arcs are used to close polygon in cases where a gap between 2 Source Data arcs exceeds 0.001 meters. If a gap is less than 0.001 meters, one of the Source Data is extended to close the polygon, in accordance with the Source Data edit hierarchy i.e. with the highest order of importance to the least importance which is in the order of ATS, Hydrography, Hypsography, ADP data, Access, Height-of-Land or digitized arcs and digital reference file. Spatial relationship of the boundary layer compiled is maintained with the Base Features (BF) Source data and other Source Data with the geometry of all the Source Data remains unaltered throughout the editing process. Edit tolerance is set to zero for node snap and arc snap. The GA polygons compiled have all the linework precisely closed. Attribute table was created according to the item definition and standards provided by the Information and Data Provisioning Services, Informatics Branch, Corporate Services Division. Topology validation was performed on data to check polygonal integrity.
