The spatial layer APPLICATION POLY is a multi part polygon that represents the SUBJECT PROPERTIES under an ALR APPLICATION. An ALR APPLICATION is the procedural instrument by which people, organizations, local governments (Regional Districts or Municipalities), the Agricultural Land Commission, and the Provincial Government of B.C. make requests to affect changes to the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR). The following component changes can be requested either individually or together under a single ALR APPLICATION: - Include land in the ALR - Exclude land from the ALR - Subdivide land in the ALR - Non-farm use (which includes removing soil and adding fill)

Object Description


Short Name: TSLRPPLCT2
Comments: The spatial layer APPLICATION POLY is a multi part polygon that represents the SUBJECT PROPERTIES under an ALR APPLICATION.

Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
ALR_APPLICATION_POLY_ID LRPPLCTNPL NUMBER 20 System generated sequence number to uniquely identify an ALR APPLICATION POLY
LEGACY_APPLICATION_NBR LGCPPLCTNN VARCHAR2 10 LEGACY APPLICATION NBR contains the application number from the prior application dataset called ATS (the applications tracking system before OATS.)
GEOMETRY_VERIFICATION_IND GMTRY_VRFD VARCHAR2 1 GEOMETRY VERIFICATION INDicates whether the Agricultural Land Commision have reviewed the geometry provided within the application and consider it to be representative of the application. Value consist of 'N' and 'Y'; when a determination as the review status of the application's shape cannot be made users should assume the shape has not been reviewed ('N').
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 column required by spatial layers that interact with ESRI ArcSDE. It is populated with unique values automatically by SDE
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.
