Map Product Downloads

Provincial Base Map Series and other map products published by Environment and Parks, or on behalf of other Government of Alberta ministries, are now available for direct download under the Open Government Licence – Alberta.

With the advent of new electronic technologies to allow for the publishing (PDF format, and TIFF format for some products) and distribution (internet website .ftp delivery) of map products, and the recent policy direction of the Government of Alberta to encourage Ministries to participate in the Government of Alberta Open Information and Open Data Policy, the Informatics Branch – Information and Data Provisioning Services has transitioned from hard copy map delivery to electronic delivery under the Open Government Licence – Alberta.
