Geology Faults are a component of the British Columbia Digital Geology Data Download: http://www.empr.gov.bc.ca/Mining/Geoscience/BedrockMapping/Pages/BCGeoMap.aspx. Geology fault line coverage was compiled at 1:100,000 scale as part of the BC Geological Survey mineral potential project, 1994-1996. Original coding was revised and rationalized in 2001-2002 by D.G. MacIntyre, and updated and revised in 2002-2004 by N.W.D. Massey. New mapping completed after 1996 is being added to this file through the BCGeologyMap project, lead by Yao Cui.

Object Name: WHSE_MINERAL_TENURE.GEOL_FAULT_LINE
Short Name: FAULT_LINE
|Column Name||Short Name||Data Type||Data Precision||Comments|
|FAULT_ID||FAULT_ID||VARCHAR2||6||Surrogate primary key|
|FAULT_TYPE||FAULT_TYPE||VARCHAR2||20||The type of fault: Fault, Normal Fault, Thrust, or Extension Fault|
|FEATURE_CODE||FTRCD||VARCHAR2||10||A feature code is most importantly a means of linking a feature to its name and definition. For example, the code GB15300120 on a digital geographic feature links it to the name "Lake - Dry" with the definition "A lake bed from which all water has drained or evaporated."|
|GEOMETRY||GEOMETRY||SDO_GEOMETRY||1||GEOMETRY is the column used to reference the spatial coordinates defining the feature.|
|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.|
|FEATURE_LENGTH_M||NUMBER||19||FEATURE_LENGTH_M is the system calculated length or perimeter of a geometry in meters|
