A 100 metre proximity polygon has been added around all Protected Areas and Crown Reservation/Notations in this map, and can be seen in the "Table of Results" below if the section/township searched intersects with those 100 metre proximity polygons.
These proximity polygons do not represent ownership/management authority of the lands they fall upon, however there may be reasons to consult with Alberta Parks about activities in the area.
In all cases send an email to email@example.com for any questions.
EO is an area of land and/or water in which a species or ecological community is, or was, present. The element is either a species (or subspecies taxa) or an ecological community, the occurrence is documented location.
An EO should have practical conservation value for the Element as evidenced by potential continued (or historical) presence and/or regular recurrence at a given location so it is a derived product that is more than just a species observation.
For Species Elements, the EO often corresponds with the local population, but when appropriate may be a portion of a population (e.g., for long distance dispersers) or may be a group of nearby populations (e.g., metapopulation). For Ecological Community Elements, the EO may represent a stand or patch of a natural community, or a cluster of stands or patches of a natural community.
Non-sensitive Element Occurrences are occurrences with no restrictions concerning the provision of precise location information.
Sensitive Element Occurrences are occurrences for which ACIMS does not provide precise location information without further consultation. These occurrences are spatially "generalized" to the township(~10km x 10km) scale.
