In 2010, Capital City Clean Up initiated a Graffiti Vandalism Audit to assess the amount of graffiti vandalism found in the neighbourhoods in Edmonton with the highest reported incidences of graffiti. A follow-up audit was completed in 2011 to determine if there were significant changes to the amount of graffiti found. This data set is result of the 2010 Graffiti Vandalism Audit.
The reference system consists of six PV modules arranged at fixed angles on the roof of the Shaw Theatre at NAIT’s Main Campus, near the corner of Princess Elizabeth Avenue and 106 Street. The angles correspond to those typically used for solar installations in Edmonton. Each of the six modules is paired with a duplicate module placed at exactly the same angle. During the winter months, snow will be cleared from the left side of the modules. By pairing modules at exactly the same angles, researchers will be able to compare the effect of snow clearing versus snow cover on energy production. The degree angle of rows are 90, 53, 45, 27, 18, 14 degrees. You can find the actual picture at the "About" tab. In the dataset column name, 90_LEFT means the left panel and 90 degree angle and so on.
The City is not the owner of this data, it is provided to us and owned by NAIT
Outlines the progression of Front Yards in Bloom since starting in 1999. Front Yards in Bloom (FYinB) is supported by the City of Edmonton, Edmonton Horticultural Society and postal workers.
Data prior to 2007 is estimated.
In 2010, Capital City Clean Up initiated a Graffiti Vandalism Audit to assess the amount of graffiti vandalism found in the neighbourhoods in Edmonton with the highest reported incidences of graffiti. A follow-up audit was completed in the following years to determine if there were significant changes to the amount of graffiti found. This data set is result of 2015 Graffiti Vandalism Audits.

Source data is from the Energy Resources Conservation Board (ERCB).
This file shows all releases reported to the ERCB between January 1, 1975 and February 4, 2013. There are three entries before 1975, but in this database anyway, reporting seems unreliable before then.
Note that these numbers do not include any releases from pipelines which cross provincial or national boundaries, as these are not under the ERCB’s jurisdiction. Volumes are given in cubic metres. To convert to barrels, multiply by 6.292. To convert to litres, multiply by 1000.
The latitude and longitude coordinates show the centre point of each Alberta Township System Legal Subdivision that was given in the data. Locations are approximate and are accurate to within about 200 metres.
This dataset provides historical parameter values for stations in the Edmonton Region as determined by the Alberta Capital Airshed.
The data is collected via a web service provided by the Alberta Environmental Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting Agency (AEMERA) .
AEMERA is the provincial organization responsible for monitoring, evaluating and reporting on key air, water, land and biodiversity indicators. AEMERA’s work informs environmental decision-making by policy makers, regulators, planners, researchers, communities, industries and the public.
AEMERA’s mandate is to provide open and transparent access to scientific data and information on the condition of Alberta’s environment, including specific indicators as well as cumulative effects, both provincially and in specific locations.
A complete list of City of Edmonton run waste/recycling drop-off facilities (depots), including Community Recycling Depots, Eco Stations and the Reuse Centre. Data includes facility address, operating hours, phone number, latitude/longitude and general description of accepted items.
To be used with the following data sets: Waste/Recycling Streams List, Waste Materials List.
This is a measure of the kilograms of waste produced per person in Edmonton.
Opportunities to recover and utilize waste as a resource are increasing; however we still need to reduce our waste if we are to achieve our goal of becoming a zero waste city. Practices such as re-use, recycling, backyard composting and grasscycling (or leaving grass clippings on your lawn rather than bagging them), as well as safe household hazardous waste disposal all contribute to waste reduction.

A list of Waste/Recycling Materials, any synonyms that the Material is known as, the Stream (classification and/or categorization) that the Material falls under, Drop off Instructions and any Special Instructions for the Material.
A Material entry can appear more than once due to the fact that a material item can fall into one or more Streams.
The urban Primary Land and Vegetation Inventory (PLVI) is an air photo-based, spatially referenced digital inventory developed to identify the type, extent and conditions of vegetation in urban areas of the Province of Alberta. At time of publication, the uPLVI coverage included the City of Edmonton and a 3.2 km buffer. The uPLVI follows the framework of, and can be integrated with, the Province of Alberta’s Primary Land and Vegetation Inventory (PLVI). In order to capture the unique variation found in large urban settings the Provincial PLVI landcover types were modified. To provide more land-cover information within urban settings seventeen Site Types were added to the Provincial PLVI classification. In addition, Seven PLVI Site Types were deemed inapplicable for urban settings. Ecological conditions in the uPLVI are interpreted specific to the availability of moisture and nutrients to plants (i.e. Moisture Regime & Nutrient Regime), using site factors and vegetation species as indicators. A polygon may be a-spatially attributed with up to 3 ecological conditions, depending on complexity and extent.
See the uPLVI Interpreters Manual for additional information
Historically, the City of Edmonton has managed ‘natural areas’ within the North Saskatchewan River Valley and the Tablelands separately, guided by inventories such as the Ribbon of Green and Geowest (1993). Over the past decade, City policy has shifted to manage natural areas with consideration of their role within an ecological network. Today, a goal of the City is to protect, preserve and enhance a functioning ecological network throughout the city limits. This network should include lands in both the river valley and the Tablelands.
To further this goal, a model was developed in 2015 for determining environmental sensitivity scores across the entirety of the city. This model guided the collection of several digital data layers with coverage across the entire study area (including several ecological assets, threats to assets, and development and cultural constraints). Data layers were then used to develop spatial outputs that summarized the distribution of these assets, threats and constraints. These base layers have been compiled into this dataset to help inform planning, development and conservation throughout Edmonton.
Environmental sensitivity analysis incorporated recent mapping of the ecological network of native and non-native vegetation, streams, wetlands and other waterbodies as much as possible, with practical limitations. The City’s urban Primary Land and Vegetation Inventory (uPLVI) and remote sensing data used for this assessment were completed in 2015 and 2013 respectively, which is relatively recent, but not current. Similarly, infrastructure data (roads, subdivision development and stormwater facilities) provided varied in month of acquisition from 2015. Some discrepancy between mapped and actual features may result, due to loss and changes from ongoing development activities.
