Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
PROT_PHIB_SYSID PRT_PHB_SD NUMBER 10 PROT_PHIB_SYSID is a system generated unique identification number.
BUFF_DISTANCE BFF_DSTNCE NUMBER 5 Distance in metres of the buffer from the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI).
DATA_SOURCE_ORIGIN DT_SRC_RGN VARCHAR2 75 Year of the Wildland Urban Interface data that was used to create the buffered dataset.
FEATURE_AREA_SQM FEAT_AREA 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.
