Update and further develop Outline of Alberta

The outline of Alberta is a centralized navigation hub for the subject of Alberta. It is a hierarchical topics list intended to summarize the entire subject of Alberta and Wikipedia's coverage of it. In turn, it is part of Wikipedia's outline system which is one of Wikipedia's contents systems.

Please look it over and fill-in missing topics. If Wikipedia has an article or article section about those topics, please add links to them.

While browsing the outline, please answer the following questions (and fix the outline as needed):

  1. What's missing?
  2. Is the structure of the outline (sections and indents) representative of the subject?
  3. Does the outline help understand the relationships between the topics presented in the best way possible?

The overall purpose of the outline is to help readers comprehend the subject by showing what belongs to it, and within the subject what belongs to what.

The outline is intended to be a taxonomy of the subject, and also serves as a table of contents and navigation aid to browse Wikipedia's articles (and article sections) about the subject.

It is also a useful tool for this WikiProject to analyze, plan, develop, and revise Alberta articles. It provides a bird's eye view of Alberta coverage.

It was built as a "reverse outline", a structural model of existing work, which in addition to being a summary of the work, can reveal the gaps and other weaknesses for revision purposes.

Photo Requests

For Alberta-related articles needing a photograph, use {{reqphoto|in=Alberta}}, {{reqphoto|in=Calgary}}, {{reqphoto|in=Edmonton}}, or {{reqphoto|in=Lethbridge}} in the talk page, which adds the article to Category:Wikipedia requested photographs in Alberta. You can help Wikipedia by uploading freely licensed photographs for these articles to Wikimedia Commons.

The Free Image Search Tool may be able to locate suitable images on other web sites.
