Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
BLOCK_NON_DEVELOPED_ID BLCK_NN_DV NUMBER 10 BLOCK NON DEVELOPED ID is a system generated unique identification number. This is a primary key of this table. e.g., 1
TIMBER_SALE_OFFICE_NAME TMBR_SL_FF VARCHAR2 50 TIMBER SALE OFFICE NAME is the name of the office providing the administrative and management services for the business area and customer in relation to timber sales. e.g. Peace-Liard
MANAGEMENT_UNIT_NAME MNGMNT_NT_ VARCHAR2 15 MANAGEMENT UNIT NAME is the administrative management unit identifier (TSA/TFL) defined by the ministry for managing the timber sale, e.g. TFL 39 (blk3,4), Cascadia
LICENCE_ID LICENCE_ID VARCHAR2 15 LICENCE ID is a six digit licence number (file identifier) assigned to the Timber Sale licence by FTA (Forest Tenure Administration) e.g. A50174
CUT_BLOCK_ID CT_BLCK_D VARCHAR2 20 CUT BLOCK ID is an identifier for a cut block within a Timber Sale licence. There is an unique block number within a specific LICENCE ID. e.g., 1, MA118
CUT_BLOCK_SEQUENCE_NUMBER CT_BLCK_SQ NUMBER 15 CUT BLOCK SEQUENCE NUMBER is a BCTS system generated unique identifier for a cut block. This field is used to join spatial data (e.g., FOREST 11.BLOCK) with the tabular data (FORESTVIEW.V BLOCK). e.g., 160044517
OPENING_ID OPENING_ID VARCHAR2 15 OPENING ID is an identifier of the administrative boundary of an area of land on which silviculture activities are planned and completed. This is comprised of the mapsheet grid, letter, square and opening number. e.g. 092J057-33
CUT_BLOCK_STATE_CODE CT_BLCK_ST VARCHAR2 20 CUT BLOCK STATE CODE is the current state of the cut block. e.g., PP = Proposed, ADV = Annual Developed Volume, HB = Harvest Begin (Logging Started), LC = Logging Completed, RG = Regen Met, GU = Green Up Met, FG = Free Growing, and WIP =Work In Progress.
FDP_STATUS_CODE FDP_STTS_C VARCHAR2 10 FDP STATUS CODE is the status of the block under the FDP (Forest Development Plan). e.g., PROP = Proposed, APP = A-Approved, OPC = Operation Plan Complete, INF = Information, DECL = Declared, 196 (1) = 196(1)FRPA, and 196(2) = 196(2)FRPA.
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 FTR_LNGTH_ NUMBER 19 FEATURE LENGTH M is the system calculated length or perimeter of a geometry in meters.
SHAPE SHP SDO_GEOMETRY 1 SHAPE is the column used to reference the spatial coordinates defining the feature.
OBJECTID BJCTD 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.
