The Alberta Municipal Data Sharing Partnership (AMDSP) came out of the formation of a standardized dataset emergency vehicle dispatch and routing within Alberta. This was in 2007, and the program has since expanded to sharing and standardization of a variety of datasets among municipalities.
Today, the AMDSP is a partnership of 161 urban and rural municipalities and First Nations from throughout the province. Municipal data is collected and standardized, and it is shared among the municipalities and beyond – to mapping services, public agencies and businesses. All datasets are considered open data, so the information is available to access by governments, First Nations, citizens, voluntary organizations, academia and the private sector.
Municipalities in AMDSP
Members of the AMDSP include both urban and rural municipalities from throughout Alberta.
To become a member of the AMDSP, municipalities need to agree to the data sharing agreement and submit at least on update per year on datasets for address points, common places and roads.
