Spatial Data Warehouse has changed its name to Alberta Data Partnerships to reflect its evolving vision of making Alberta’s spatial data more comprehensive and accessible.

Who we are

Alberta Data Partnerships (ADP) is a non-profit, public-private partnership created to provide long-term management of comprehensive digital data sets for our stakeholders.

Governed by a board of directors, ADP has the core purpose of maintaining and promoting the broadest possible distribution of provincial digital mapping that meets the immediate needs of the Alberta market.

Through the Mapping Data Agreement with the Government of Alberta and other key contracts with data creators, ADP is committed to making Alberta’s base mapping infrastructure more available, accessible, accurate, and affordable. ADP operates in a joint venture agreement with an operating partner, AltaLIS Ltd. The AltaLIS website is the medium through which users can access data sets. ADP also has a contract with Abacus Datagraphics to deliver Public Lands survey plans through its Badgr application.
