A simplification of the current version of the Biogeoclimatic Map feature (version 11, August 10th, 2018) that has been aggregated to the Zone level. Intended as a cartographic layer for viewing at a scale of 1:2,000,000.

NOT FOR ANALYTICAL PURPOSES as polygon boundaries have been generalized. Use BEC_BIOGEOCLIMATIC_POLY when performing analysis.

Object Description

Object Name: WHSE_FOREST_VEGETATION.BEC_BIOGEOCLIMATIC_ZONE_2M_SPG

Short Name: BEC_ZON_2M

Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
FEATURE_CLASS_SKEY FTRCLSSSK NUMBER 10 The unique key assigned to a Feature Class by the Ministry of Forests. The Feature Class Skey value for Biogeoclimatic Polygon is 435.
ZONE ZONE VARCHAR2 12 A code uniquely identifying a Biogeoclimatic Zone of interest to MOF.
ZONE_NAME ZONE_NAME VARCHAR2 360 A full description of the Biogeoclimatic Zone.
FEATURE_AREA_SQM NUMBER 19 FEATURE_AREA_SQM is the system calculated area of a two-dimensional polygon in square meters
FEATURE_LENGTH_M NUMBER 19 FEATURE_LENGTH_M is the system calculated length or perimeter of a geometry in meters
GEOMETRY GEOMETRY SDO_GEOMETRY 1 GEOMETRY is the column used to reference the spatial coordinates defining the feature.
FEATURE_AREA FTRR NUMBER 38 Area in square meters. This value is calculated by FME from the aggregated polygons during the data load; this area may contain more precision than is appropriate for the particular geometry.
FEATURE_LENGTH FTRLNGTH NUMBER 38 Length in meters. This value is calculated by FME during the data load based on the aggregated geometry; this length may contain more precision than is appropriate for the particular geometry.
OBJECTID OBJECTID NUMBER 38 OBJECTID is a required attribute of feature classes and object classes in a geodatabase.
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.
