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.
Describes the types of Fixtures which provide water to washrooms, drinking fountains, fill up stations and water features maintained by Calgary Parks or located on lands under Calgary Parks Stewardship.
Version: 111517. The Regional Transportation Model (RTM) is a computer simulation of the city and surrounding region. This file contains the road network assumptions for the 2039 Scenario from the 2015 CTP/MDP Scenario Series. This series is a time series of future forecasts that are used in transportation planning analysis. The series contains five horizons from 2015 to 2076 and includes roads classified as collector and above and does not include local roads. This data is a representation, not an exact replica, of the road network and is intended to represent the road network that Calgary Region residents may experience in 2039 provided the anticipated changes in infrastructure and land use occur.

This dataset reflects the Ward Boundaries that were in affect from October 21, 2013 until October 16, 2017. A ward is the division of the city into electoral areas, each represented by one elected Councillor. Wards are a geographical division of the municipality and are referred to by a number defined in the bylaw. Divisions are determined under the authority of the Municipal Government Act and criteria in Council policy. Please see the Ward Boundaries dataset for the current data.
Every year in May, The City conducts the Central Business District (CBD) cordon count. The cordon count is performed at 31 locations around the CBD over a three week time period, collecting data on how people travel into and out of downtown Calgary. The CBD cordon circles the downtown with the Bow River to the north and the railway tracks to the south and from 11 Street in the west to the Elbow River in the east. These data represent the total number of persons entering (inbound) and exiting (outbound) at each location, by modes, during a 16 hour time period. This raw dataset is NOT normalized to average weekday. It is a snapshot of the inbound and outbound activity on a single day at these locations and reflects conditions specific to that day such as construction, lane closures, weather, etc. Therefore, data may not be directly comparable between locations or years.
*Attachment is a summary of the inbound and outbound totals and mode of travel.* For additional information on cordon counts, see About --> Source URL.
