Capture results of mosquitoes from various locations in Edmonton. These collections are from standard New Jersey light traps that are commonly used to record changes in abundance of mosquitoes before and after control campaigns and to compare seasonal and annual fluctuations in population. Since not all mosquito species are attracted equally to light traps, the City uses a variety of other trapping and survey methods (with their own limitations) to monitor mosquitoes. Not all trap collection sites are factored into the historical averages. Some data can be incomplete due to trap failure. Some trap locations change over time. Trap collections reflect, not absolute population levels, but mosquito activity, which is influenced by changing environmental conditions (temperature, humidity, wind, etc.). The weekly averages do not include any male mosquitoes or any females of species that do not typically bite people. Each data set reflects the mosquito activity of the week previous to the collection date. To complement this dataset, there is the Rainfall Guage data which measures rainfall data in the Greater Edmonton area - https://data.edmonton.ca/Environmental-Services/Rainfall-Gauge-Results/7fus-qa4r/edit_metadata
This story is based on the results of a 2016 study, using 2014 data, done for the Edmonton area to determine the vulnerable drainage and sewage areas of Edmonton in regards to a 1 in 100 year rainfall event.
Due to the constant changing of subsurface infrastructure (adding, upgrading, etc.) combined with the constant changing definition of a 1 in 100 year rainfall event (based on historic rainfall amounts), this raster file reflects the results of a study done in 2016 and should neither suggest previous year’s vulnerabilities nor future year’s vulnerabilities.
For a more regional Edmonton area breakdown of the Study’s results:
There are three different colour to the vulnerability of the roadways and the corresponding ponding depth that would occur for that area during a large rainstorm.
Those colours are:
Green (representing the depth from surface that sanitary flows can surcharge from less than 2.5 m)
Yellow (representing the depth from surface that sanitary flows can surcharge from 1.5 to 2.5 m)
Red (representing the depth from surface that sanitary flows can surcharge from greater than 1.5 m)
This Raster file is best viewed overlaid with the 2016 Flood Mitigation Study - Drainage and Sanitation Surcharge Map; as the various coloured areas follow the subsurface infrastructure (and the corresponding roadways if you are also viewing the street map as a layer).

This dataset is based on 2014 information and will not be updated further. The model is based on a theoretical, worst-case scenario storm that has never occurred in the Edmonton area.
The LiDar used was a 5 meter grid system. LiDar has an accuracy of ? cm horizontally/vertically. Bare Earth LiDar was used in for this model surface.
This is a spline fit interpolations model. This is a 1D-1D model with 2D interpolations.The accuracy of the information provided in these data sets is plus or minus 10 cm vertically, and 10 cm horizontally.
The 100 year flood was based on the 2015 Edmonton 4 year Chicago storm event over 20 plus neighbourhoods. The data is a collection of the worst case scenario of model runs.
This is a common practice for Edmonton drainage models. These models are high level concept and projects determined from this data set will undergo finer, more detailed modeling.
These maps are a visual representation and intended to be used when prioritization of the best engineering solutions that are scheduled to be brought forward to Utility Council to mitigate future flooding in the City. The best engineering solutions are high level concept designs and require further modeling and design. At the time of the PDF release, November 9, 2016 there was no funding for any projects to be completed or for further design. Strategy will be brought forward to Utility Committee on June 7, 2017. Council will be determining funding and rate of project completion.
The Storm size used in these models are larger than Edmonton has historically seen. Historically, as seen in 2004 and 2012, only 4 neighbourhoods at a time were hit with the 100 year rainstorm event. With the cont
All Census information is as of April 1, 2016. No data on any individual residence will be released. To protect the privacy of individuals, data is compiled and presented at the city, ward and neighbourhood level only. Neighbourhood results with a population under 50 are not posted to protect the information collected. Responses are voluntary consequently response rates vary among questions, neighbourhoods and wards.
Data collection ended August 26, 2014 for this pilot project.
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 degree. 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.

311 Explorer is a web-based mapping tool that uses the City’s open data information to search, filter, and display 311 service requests on public property. You will be able to:
View the various types of service requests on public property that have been generated in a neighborhood, ward or across the city, see the status of service requests, use the map or charts for analysis of neighbourhoods
Open City Wi-Fi is a free public Wi-Fi Internet access service provided courtesy of the City of Edmonton to patrons of some of the City’s publicly accessible facilities. Currently more than 14,000 devices connect to Open City Wi-Fi every week, resulting in more than 2TB of data traffic. The service also routinely accepts over 4,500 concurrent sessions during peak periods daily.
