Role: Role code: originator Abstract: The purpose of this dataset is to identify areas harvested after the date of the inventory. The Forest Stewardship and Trade Branch is responsible for the creation and maintenance of these boundaries for Crown-managed Forest Management Units. This dataset is produced for the Government of Alberta and is available to the general public. Purpose: This dataset consolidates all AVI Crown Post-Inventory Harvest Areas into a single feature class. The AVI Crown Post-Inventory Harvest Areas updates identify those areas harvested after the inventory date. It is important to identify those areas where the forest cover has been altered and/or removed. It provides supplementary information to the AVI repository to assist in the analysis and decision-making process for forest management planning, wildfire management, wildlife habitat classification and integrated resource management activities. This dataset was previously known as AVI Crown Post-Inventory Cutblocks.

Data quality info:

Data quality: Scope: Scope: Hierarchy level: Scope code: dataset Report: Conceptual consistency: Measure description: Users must be aware and understand that this data was compiled from sub-sets collected from different sources to various standards. Result: missing Report: Absolute external positional accuracy: Measure description: Horizontal accuracy of older data is +/- 20 metres. Newer datasets have a horizontal accuracy of +/- 5 metres. Cutblocks would have been captured at a medium scale level of photography between 1:15,000 and 1:30,000 scales or at 30cm digital imagery. Result: missing Lineage: Lineage: Statement: This dataset does not contain cutblocks historically managed by the Crown that are outside the current extent of Crown-managed FMUs. Harvested areas already captured in the AVI dataset are removed from this post inventory data. Note that the associated AVI data is available as a separate feature class, Alberta Vegetation Inventory (AVI) Crown, that is distributed with the AVI Post Inventory Cutblocks. The extent of the AVI Crown dataset does not exactly coincide with the extent of the AVI Post Inventory Cutblocks dataset. Process step: Process step: Description: This process of the integration of cutblocks from numerous source data sets involves reconciliation of spatial boundaries and specifically removal of duplicates, slivers, multi-shape. Information was validated with SPOT 2.5 metre panchromatic mosaic. Cutblocks corresponding to features already existing in the AVI repository were updated or removed. Multipart features were converted to separate polygons.
