Land-use/Land-cover Classifications of the Cold Lake Oil Sands Area Derived from 2009 Landsat Imagery (Image data, Tiff format)

Land-use/Land-cover Classifications of the Cold Lake Oil Sands Area Derived from 2009 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 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. This land classification raster dataset is derived from 2009 Landsat imagery. It contains 13 classes: 0 - unclassified, 1 - exposed land/cut blocks/harvested areas, 2 - water bodies, 3 - transitional bare surfaces, 5 - mixed developed areas, 6 - developed areas, 7- shoal, 8 - shrub land, 9 - grassland, 10 - agriculture areas, 11 - coniferous forest, 12 - broad leaf forest, 13 - mixed forest, and 14- fire scar. 2022-04-13 Government of Alberta AGS-Info@aer.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and Technology73e73lalbertacanadaclassificationcold lakecold lake oil sands areageoscientificinformationgis datain situland uselandsat 7remote sensingshale gasvegetationwell padsGovernment information Land-use/Land-cover Classifications of the Cold Lake Oil Sands Area Derived from 2009 Landsat Imagery (Image data, Tiff format) - (HTML)HTML https://geodiscover.alberta.ca/geoportal/rest/metadata/item/7e214e7715df4f8d8724ef8e7e87672c/html Land-use/Land-cover Classifications of the Cold Lake Oil Sands Area Derived from 2009 Landsat Imagery (Image data, Tiff format) - (TIFF)TIFF https://static.ags.aer.ca/files/document/DIG/DIG_2015_0067.zip Land-use/Land-cover Classifications of the Cold Lake Oil Sands Area Derived from 2009 Landsat Imagery (Image data, Tiff format) - (XML)XML https://geodiscover.alberta.ca/geoportal/rest/metadata/item/7e214e7715df4f8d8724ef8e7e87672c/xml Alberta GeoportalHTML https://open.alberta.ca/opendata/cb34e02f-e0f6-49be-b5ad-96326a701b57
