All of the other imagery contributions which happened this month were from out west. In the Edmonton, AB area, a number of communities, including St. Albert, Strathcona and Sturgeon Counties collaborated in collecting imagery in 2013. Their 25 cm imagery is now available on ArcGIS Online at 1:1,128 to 1:36,112.
