Wall-to-wall Land Cover Inventory

The ABMI Wall-to-wall Land Cover Inventory is a polygon-based representation of the types and extent of broad land cover classes (e.g. water, grassland, and mixed forest) in Alberta.

 

Provincial Land Cover

The ABMI Wall-to-wall Land Cover datasets provide Alberta-wide, polygon-based representations of provincial land cover circa 2000 and 2010, respectively. They are based on the digital classification of 30-metre-resolution Landsat satellite images, and enhanced using GIS datasets provided by the Government of Alberta. The land cover products contain approximately 1 million polygons, and comprise 11 classes, including water, shrubland, grassland, agriculture, exposed land, developed land, and different forest types.
