Point Locations of Alberta Federal and Provincial Research Plots

Description

The dataset provides the known and estimated locations of active and inactive federal and provincial research plots in Alberta. The research plots includes: the Alberta Permanent Sampling Program (PSP) which incorporates Alberta Forest Service (AFS) plots, Stand Dynamic Stands (SDS) and Forest Management Plots (FMB). Alberta Monitoring Plots (MP). Western Boreal Growth and Yield (WESBOGY) Plots, TAKI Pine Trial Plots, Mountain Pine Beetle (MPB) Monitoring Plots. Duffy (DUF) Lake Plots. and miscellaneous research plots (RES) including range and genetic trial plots. All attempts to position the plot points as accurately as possible have been made however as many research programs are decades old the precision for points taken depends on the accuracy of the GPS unit (if any) used at the time, and if any differential correction was used.
