The Significant Landforms of Alberta dataset contains significant (provincially, nationally or internationally) geomorphic features within the province of Alberta, for distribution external to the Government of Alberta. These data have been assembled by Alberta Parks, in collaboration with the Alberta Geological Survey (AGS), with contributions from other subject matter experts in Alberta. The intended usage of the Significant Landforms of Alberta dataset (download name 'Landforms of Alberta for website') is to provide data for analysis by users external to the Government of Alberta for significant geomorphic land features in Alberta. This dataset is provided for information and education only, there is no requirement to consult this dataset for development, environmental review or any other review process. Data are subject to frequent change, without notice. The user assumes all responsibility for ensuring their data are current. Current data can be obtained directly from Alberta Conservation Information Management System (ACIMS), Alberta Parks, Government of Alberta. The Information is licensed “as is”, and the Information Provider excludes all representations, warranties, obligations, and liabilities, whether express or implied, to the maximum extent permitted by law. The Information Provider is not liable for any errors or omissions in the Information, and will not under any circumstances be liable for any direct, indirect, special, incidental, consequential, or other loss, injury or damage caused by its use or otherwise arising in connection with this license or the Information, even if specifically advised of the possibility of such loss, injury or damage. Government of Alberta Information Security Classification http://imtdocs.alberta.ca/Information_Security_Classification.pdf Identification of values have been completed by staff members of Alberta Parks and Alberta Geological Survey (AGS), along with other scientists and subject matter experts in Alberta. All attempts have been made to have data accurate as possible but data should be used at the user's own risk. This data has been put together via discussions and research with scientists and experts. The classification system has been reviewed by members of the Alberta Geological Survey for consistency. This dataset is considered partially complete - efforts have been made to capture significant geomorphic features in Alberta but efforts should continue in perpetuity to ensure all data features have been captured The data is edited by Alberta Parks staff from data submitted from a variety of sources. Spatial data is edited via a shapefile in a network ArcGIS system. Attribute data is edited via a relational database system. Data is joined to create 'landforms with attributes' and placed on the network. That dataset is filtered and modified to create the 'landforms of alberta for website' file. Features interpreted from various imagery and other information sources. Accuracy dependent on imagery source, ranging from approximately +/- 1m for orthophoto imagery/LiDAR, to +/- 25m for less detailed imagery sources. The significance rank (Provincial, National or International) of the landform element occurrence. Determined if any are true - outstanding, less than 20 locations in the province or less than 5 locations in the province The Information is licensed “as is”, and the Information Provider excludes all representations, warranties, obligations, and liabilities, whether express or implied, to the maximum extent permitted by law.
