The ABMI Wall-to-Wall Human Footprint (HF) Inventory (scale 1:15,000) is a complete representation of provincial scale anthropogenic footprint information for the province of Alberta. This comprehensive layer includes all the HF information related to the energy, forestry, and agriculture industries, as well as urban development and is updated every two years.
The ABMI’s HF information is core to understanding relationships between human land use, habitat and species abundance. These data are used to support policy development, regional planning, and cumulative effects management decisions.
