Information Pyramids: Presenting Good Information To You

Information pyramids are an unique asset on Alberta Land-use Knowledge Network's website. At their top, a topic's knowledge summary presents the community of experts' checklist of what to pay attention to, what to avoid and what is on the horizon. The factsheet level of a topic's information pyramid presents the "How To's", the current good practices. The Details layer of the information pyramid presents the research articles, manuals, reports and regulatory instructions that are judged most useful by the community of experts. Information pyramids do not cover all the information on a topic, just the most relevant at the moment and robustly useful and foundational to the topic. When you see the pyramid symbol on an article, you know it has gone through a community of experts review to be on the Land-use Knowledge Network website
