Derived Ecosite Phase v2.0

Description

Derived Ecosite Phase (DEP) v2.0 is a digital and spatial representation of ecological sites and phases in those areas of Alberta where both Alberta Vegetation Inventory (AVI) and lidar are available. The AVI is an imagery-based digital inventory developed to identify the type, extent and conditions of vegetation, where it exists and what changes are occurring. The most up-to-date ecological site phases can be found in the Ecological Site Guides. Guides are broken into individual Natural Subregions. See the Cross Reference Section for additional information. This dataset is produced for the Government of Alberta and is available to the general public. Please consult the Distribution Information of this metadata for the appropriate contact to acquire this dataset.This dataset covers the areas of Alberta where there is both AVI and lidar coverage (mainly in the Green Area). AVIE and lidar-derived slope position were created by the Forest Stewardship and Trade Branch, Forestry Division, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry. Rules used to classify the data were developed by the Rangeland Conservation and Stewardship Branch, Lands Division, Alberta Environment and Parks.
