Citywide Land Cover

This is a composite land cover layer created from multiple City data sources and compiled into a single seamless land cover layer in 2015. The final land cover layer was checked against the City of Calgary’s 2014 air photo at a minimum of 1:4000. Missing and/or overlapping areas were resolved manually and City parks were reviewed at 1:1000 resolution. The land cover dataset informs several City analyses, including a Habitat Condition Rating model to assess natural area park health and a structural wildlife connectivity model, where land cover resistance values act as the difficulty rankings for terrestrial wildlife movement. The dataset can also be used in analyses of open/park space contiguity.
