Additional Information

Purpose

This theme provides summary-level fish and fish habitat information using a GIS or desktop mapping application for all streams in British Columbia. The primary objective is to provide a standard set of information to assist with four main business functions: sub-regional planning, project reviews, reguests for information and research.

Lineage Statement

Planimetric positional data are points that originate from points marked on streams on 1:50K NTS Mapsheets. Following the geo-referencing of these points to the BC Watershed Atlas 50K and the application of the ESRI Dynamic segmentation model each point is assigned a linear measure value that determines its location from its stream mouth. Full Coverage of province.
