Landscape analysis by sub-drainage area, 2001 and 2011
Table summary
This table displays landscape analysis by sub-drainage area for 2001 and 2011. The row headers are comprised of the 164 sub-drainage area names. The column headers are comprised of the sub-drainage area code; natural land parcel size for 2011, in square kilometres; average distance to natural land parcel for 2001 and 2011, in metres; and barrier density for 2011, in metres per square kilometre.

Natural land parcel size refers to the size of continuous natural and/or naturalizing land areas including forests, wetlands, barrenlands, grasslands and shrublands, measured in km2.
Average distance to natural land parcel is defined as the average distance from any location within a sub-drainage area to a natural land parcel.
Barrier density refers to the density of roads, rail lines and electrical transmission lines, measured in m of barriers/km2 of land, but excludes other types of infrastructure such as pipelines.
Note(s):
Total area of the sub-drainage area excluding bodies of water, based on the Canada Centre for Remote Sensing (CCRS) land cover time series code 24 (open water) (Table 1, Appendix C).
