The spatial layer PANEL REGION POLY is a multi part polygon that represents the area covered by an ALC Panel Region.

The ALC divides the province into 6 Panels: Island Panel
South Coastal Panel
Okanagan Panel
Kootenay Panel
Interior Panel
North Panel

Each Panel is responsible for - Decisions on applications - Plan & bylaw reviews - Field inspections - Meeting with individuals, local governments, farm and forest organizations, and other government representatives - Delegated decision making

Object Description


Comments: The spatial layer PANEL REGION POLY is a multi part polygon that represents the area covered by an ALC Panel Region.

Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
PANEL_REGION_POLY_ID PNLRGNPLD NUMBER 20 System generated sequence number to uniquely identify an PANEL REGION POLY
FEATURE_CODE FTRCD VARCHAR2 10 The FEATURE CODE is most importantly a means of linking a feature to its name and definition. For example, the code GB15300120 on a digital geographic feature links it to the name " Lake - Dry" with the definition "A lake bed from which all water has drained or evaporated." The feature code does NOT mark when it was digitized, what dataset it belongs to, how accurate it is, what it should look like when plotted, or who is responsible for updating it. It only says what it represents in the real world. It also doesn't even matter how the lake is represented. If it is a very small lake, it may be stored as a point feature. If it is large enough to have a shape at the scale of data capture, it may be stored as an outline, or a closed polygon. The same feature code still links it to the same definition.
GEOMETRY GEOMETRY SDO_GEOMETRY 1 GEOMETRY is the column used to reference the spatial coordinates defining the feature.
OBJECTID OBJECTID NUMBER 38 OBJECTID is a required attribute of feature classes and object classes in a geodatabase.
SE_ANNO_CAD_DATA BLOB 4000 SE_ANNO_CAD_DATA is a binary column used by spatial tools to store annotation, curve features and CAD data when using the SDO_GEOMETRY storage data type.
FEATURE_AREA_SQM AREA_SQM NUMBER 19 FEATURE_AREA_SQM is the system calculated area of a two-dimensional polygon in square meters
FEATURE_LENGTH_M FEAT_LEN NUMBER 19 FEATURE_LENGTH_M is the system calculated length or perimeter of a geometry in meters
