Annual Vegetation Recovery Classification Results in the Cold Lake Oil Sands Area Derived from 2007-2008 Landsat Imagery (Image data, Tiff format)

Annual Vegetation Recovery Classification Results in the Cold Lake Oil Sands Area Derived from 2007-2008 Landsat Imagery (Image data, Tiff format) The Cold Lake oil sands area - Township 56 to 69, Range 1 to 11, west of the 4th Meridian, 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 the ecosystem and environment. This is to be achieved through enhanced science-based monitoring for improved characterization of the environment and to collect the information necessary to understand cumulative effects. Landsat multispectral imagery for 2007 and 2008 and Land Use and Land Cover (LULC) classification data derived from 2008 were used to produce this dataset. The LULC changes include vegetation loss from anthropogenic disturbances, such as infrastructure related to oil and gas exploration, forestry and agriculture, and vegetation recovery from these disturbances. This digital data release contains the vegetation recovery data from 2007 to 2008, classified into 6 classes: 1 - shrub land, 2 - grassland, 3 - agricultural areas, 4 - coniferous forest, 5 - broadleaf forest and 6 - mixed forest. 2022-04-13 Government of Alberta AGS-Info@aer.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and Technology73e73lalbertacanadachange detectionclassificationcold lakecold lake oil sands areageoscientificinformationgis datain situlandsat 7oil sandraster gridremote sensingvegetationwell padsGovernment information Annual Vegetation Recovery Classification Results in the Cold Lake Oil Sands Area Derived from 2007-2008 Landsat Imagery (Image data, Tiff format) - (HTML)HTML https://geodiscover.alberta.ca/geoportal/rest/metadata/item/51b81c0b013c4d8abff4309fdb495160/html Annual Vegetation Recovery Classification Results in the Cold Lake Oil Sands Area Derived from 2007-2008 Landsat Imagery (Image data, Tiff format) - (TIFF)TIFF https://static.ags.aer.ca/files/document/DIG/DIG_2015_0073.zip Annual Vegetation Recovery Classification Results in the Cold Lake Oil Sands Area Derived from 2007-2008 Landsat Imagery (Image data, Tiff format) - (XML)XML https://geodiscover.alberta.ca/geoportal/rest/metadata/item/51b81c0b013c4d8abff4309fdb495160/xml Alberta GeoportalHTML https://open.alberta.ca/opendata/c33d100f-8e15-4d01-a66e-2c3312f5d663
