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, requests for information and research.

Lineage Statement

Planimetric positional data are line segments whose end points originate as points marked on streams on 1:50K NTS mapsheets. Following the geo-referencing of these end points to the BC Watershed Atlas 50K Stream centreline network and the application of the ESRI Dynamic Segmentation Model the two end points for each line segment, with designated linear measures, are used to create a fish zone (event arc) from an exact trace of the stream channel between the two end points. Full coverage of the province.
