Glossary and Definitions ...
- Area Code Overlay
- An Overlay refers to the situation in which two (or more) area codes (eg- 403, 587) serve the same geographic area. In the case of Lowland Heights, area code (587) is the Overlay for area code (403).
The Overlay is necessary when the geographic area requires (or in the future will need) more phone numbers than can be provided by a single area code.
When an Overlay is present, 10-digit dialing becomes necessary even for local calls. There are different types of Overlays, with each Overlay-type having its own characteristics and dialing requirements.
If you would like to learn more about Overlays, we suggest the Wikipedia entry for Overlays.

- The Statistics Canada (StatCan) Census is conducted every 5 years with the purpose of counting the people living in Canada. This is known as a 'Quinquennial' Census. The process of taking a Census is called an 'Enumeration'.
The purpose of the Census is to provide information about the demographic and social characteristics of the people of Canada. The results of the Census goes to the federal, provincal, territorial and local governments to support their planning and administrative activities.
The most recent StatCan census was conducted in 2011. The next Quinquennial Census will be conducted in 2016.
By comparison, the United Status Census is conducted once every 10 years and is called a 'Decennial' Census.
|<1>||If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went south past Lowland Heights and then turned east". While Lowland Heights could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Lowland Heights as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.|
Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Mile's to see Pete ... Mile's is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.
Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.
Also keep in mind that Lowland Heights could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong . Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.
Since confusion between is common, we searched and weren't able to find another Alberta community named Lowland Heights.
