Linear Features Here, There, And Everywhere!

FROM: Oldman Watershed Council

Linear Features are all the roads, seismic lines, power lines, pipelines, railroads, cut lines, and recreational trails we leave on the land: it’s about how we are fragmenting the landscape. How many linear features (measured in kilometers) exist in an area of land is known as “linear features density”. Linear features density is one of the ways we can measure what impact we are having on the landscape. Many linear features on public land were created for industrial purposes, such as logging or oil and gas, and some came from cattle grazing, fire management, and recreation.
