Wall-to-Wall Human Footprint Inventory
The ABMI Wall-to-Wall Human Footprint Inventory (scale 1:15,000) is a detailed and thorough representation of provincial-scale anthropogenic footprint (e.g., agriculture, forestry, energy) information for the province of Alberta.
This comprehensive layer (updated every two years) includes human footprint information related to the energy, forestry, and agriculture industries, as well as urban development. The ABMI’s human footprint 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.
