Riparian Areas - Variable Width

Identifies variable width biophysical riparian areas along major rivers and streams in Calgary, as of 2012. Four separate riparian zones are delineated: Inner Riparian, Middle Riparian, Outer Riparian, and Potential Outermost Riparian. Boundaries are based on city-wide models driven by distance from the river/stream, slope profiles from digital elevation models, and field work calibration based on sampling of riparian plant community locations. Note that the methods identify both developed and undeveloped riparian areas.

Querying over HTTP

Splitgraph serves as an HTTP API that lets you run SQL queries directly on this data to power Web applications. For example:

curl \
    -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
{"sql": "
    SELECT *
    FROM \"calgary-ca/riparian-areas-variable-width-7mc8-zqjc\".\"riparian_areas_variable_width\"
    LIMIT 100 

See the Splitgraph documentation for more information.
