Anthropogenic Footprints of the Cold Lake Oil Sands Area from 2005 to 2013 Landsat Imagery (GIS data, polygon features)
The Cold Lake Oil Sands area, Twp. 56 to 69, Rge. 1 to 11, W 4th Mer., falls within the Lower Athabasca Regional Plan (LARP). As part of Alberta's Land-use Framework, LARP was developed in 2012 to set the stage for robust growth, vibrant communities and a healthy environment within the region. One of its implementation objectives is to balance the economic development of oil sands and impacts on ecosystem and environment. This is to be achieved through enhanced science-based monitoring for improved characterization of the environment and collection of the information necessary to understand cumulative effects. The anthropogenic footprints shapefile contains a compilation of developed and mixed developed footprint classes extracted from the land-use/land-cover classifications data from 2005 to 2013, published by Alberta Geological Survey. They can be used as a baseline for planning, managing and monitoring surface infrastructure needs and impacts.
