Explore the status and trend of human footprint status by Alberta's Natural Regions

Alberta includes some of the most diverse landscapes in North America, from high mountains to rolling prairies. The Government of Alberta combined information on regional differences in terrain, climate, soils, and vegetation to produce a province-wide ecological mapping system.[5] At its broadest level, the system defines six natural regions, each with its own unique climate, landscape features, and vegetation characteristics, including: Rocky Mountain, Foothills, Grassland, Parkland, Boreal Forest, and the Canadian Shield.
