ABMI Wetland Inventory
The ABMI Wetland Inventory comes in polygon and raster data sets. The data covers the entire province of Alberta and maps wetlands 400 m2 in size and larger. This product represents the most up to date wetland data set created by the ABMI for Alberta/Canada and provides users with high quality data to meet their needs.
The Alberta Biodiversity Monitoring Institute (ABMI) province-wide wetland inventory is divided into three project areas representing ecoregions of Alberta with distinct wetlands. These three regions are: (i) the boreal and foothills region, which is characterized by large peatland complexes; (ii) the prairie region with wetlands usually occurring in small depressional potholes, and (iii) the Rocky Mountain region where wetlands are constrained to narrow valleys.
