The Naming Committee approves names for municipal facilities, new neighbourhoods, parks and roads. Matthew Dance, a local geographer and open data advocate, created this dataset in conjunction with the City of Edmonton.
Indigenous people have lived in the Edmonton area for more than 10,000 years. Edmonton currently has an urban Indigenous population of over 50,000, the second-largest in Canada, and it is growing quickly. Reflecting this rich past and large population are over 100 place names in Edmonton with Indigenous roots. Many of the names are familiar, but not automatically associated with their Cree or Métis origins. This data set allows users to explore Edmonton by learning the Indigenous source of many of the place names found in our city, including streets, parks, neighbourhoods, walkways and more.
Actual volumes and estimated volumes are displayed. Estimated volumes are derived from growth factors at permanent counting sites. The growth factors are applied to the most recent actual AAWDT volume at a given location.
Volumes are based on counts of one or two day duration (usually completed between May to June and September to October) and are adjusted to reflect an average weekday during the year. Adjustments are based on variations by time of year measured at permanent count locations that monitor traffic year round.
Year to Year Volume Changes ‐ Interpretation of Results
An increase or decrease in volume does not necessarily indicate a trend for a given roadway. Some areas may record a temporary change in volume due to the reconstruction of a roadway link. Although every attempt is made to avoid counting areas while diversions are in effect, some roadway projects affect traffic patterns for a long period of time and are reflected in the counts. For example, the 2011 construction program included Scona Road, the interchange at 23 Avenue/Gateway Boulevard, widening of the Quesnell Bridge, overpasses for major links of the West Anthony Henday, and interchanges for the north Anthony Henday.

All Census information is as of April 1, 2016. Ages of residents are effective 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. The designation of “No Response” includes households from which no census data could be collected or only partial data was available. Bulk-count data from multiple-resident facilities (such as group homes, transient drop-in centres, residential hotels or criminal detention centres) may be limited when personal information cannot be obtained (i.e. information is not available or cannot be released by the facility administration).
All Census information is as of April 1, 2009.
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.
The designation of “No Response” includes households from which no census data could be collected or only partial data was available.
“Other Residential” includes dwelling units not covered by the other categories, such as a unit attached to a non-residential structure (e.g. an apartment in a store or church) or a movable structure (e.g. recreational vehicle, tent, etc.).
An Unoccupied site is one that was vacant (i.e. no one was living in the unit on April 1), had no structure, was under construction, or was no longer in use (structure existed, but was no longer used as a residence).
This dataset provides crime occurrence counts for EPS's 8 Crime Indicators.
An "occurrence" is a set of connected criminal events which constitute an occurrence report. The occurrence counts here are distinct from 'incidents' and 'victims' as reported by Statistics Canada.
The crime types used here are for EPS's 4 Property Crime and 4 Violent Crime Indicators only. Hence, not every type of property crime or violent crime incident is shown here (e.g,. kidnapping and theft under $5,000 are excluded here). This also excludes criminal code violations that fall under Other Criminal Code Violations, Federal Statute Violations, and Criminal Code Traffic Violations.
The criminal code that is used here is based on the most serious violation of the occurrence. For example, if a break & enter occurred that involved an aggravated assault, only the aggravated assault would be counted. This follows the standard for how Statistics Canada reports on crime throughout Canada.

The Inventory of Historic Resources in Edmonton is an inventory of structures/resources in Edmonton that merit conservation and may be eligible for designation as Municipal Historic Resources. Resources are placed on the Inventory because they have architecture or social significance to the development of Edmonton or its neighbourhoods.
Sustainable Development, in conjunction with the Edmonton Historical Board, has a mechanism to review nominations/amendments to add or delete properties to or from the Inventory. The Inventory also identifies buildings at Fort Edmonton, some landscapes and trees, cemeteries and monuments, street furnishings, and architectural fragments in the Appendix. The existing zoning, development rights and regulations continue to apply to properties on the Inventory.
The Register of Historic Resources in Edmonton is the official list of all resources on the Inventory that have been designated as a Municipal Historic Resource. Municipal Historic Resources are legally protected by a Bylaw instrument from demolition and inappropriate alterations. Any building or structure on the Register is eligible for assistance under Policy C-450B.
Rainfall is measured to assess storms and their effects on flooding and sewer performance and design.
Rainfall location color icons indicate rainfall totals and maximum storm rating during the past 24 hours.
Data is sent once 2mm is accumulated in each gauge, so timing will vary.
Website is updated every 15 minutes . Higher storm ratings and rainfall totals may have occurred if a storm lasts more than 24h. Storm ratings and rainfall are based on data at the gauge location only - nearby areas may experience differing conditions due to variability of rainstorms.
Rainfall is measured between May and October; snowfall is not measured.
