Summer, Spring, Early Winter, and Late Winter multi-scale habitat model for mountain caribou in the Western Cariboo Region / Columbia Highlands / Northern Columbia Mountains.

[Season] field should be used to split the data out into separate summer, spring, early winter, and late winter habitat models.

Model development is detailed in _Apps, C. D. and T. A. Kinley. 2000.

Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
CARIBOU_HAB_E2001_CAR_ID CRB_HB__ID NUMBER 10 WLD_CARIBOU_HAB_E2001_CAR_S_ID is a unique identifier for the record.
SEASON SEASON VARCHAR2 30 SEASON is a description of the season(s) the habitat model pertains to, i.e. Summer, Spring, Early Winter, or Late Winter.
SEASON_CODE SEASON_CD VARCHAR2 4 SEASON_CODE is a code description of the season the habitat model pertains to, i.e., SU (Summer), SP (Spring), EW (Early Winter, LW (Late Winter).
HABITAT_RATING_VALUE HAB_RT_VAL VARCHAR2 1 HABITAT_RATING_VALUE is a numeric value assigned to the original raster-based dataset. This numeric value is interpreted using the Habitat Rating Description field, i.e., 0, 4, 5, 6.
HABITAT_RATING_DESCRIPTION HAB_RT_DES VARCHAR2 40 HABITAT_RATING_DESCRIPTION is a description of the quality of the modeled caribou habitat, e.g., Best (probability > 0.6).
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 FEAT_LEN NUMBER 19 FEATURE_LENGTH_M is the system calculated length or perimeter of a geometry in meters.
SHAPE SHAPE SDO_GEOMETRY 1 SHAPE is the column used to reference the spatial coordinates defining the feature.
OBJECTID OBJECTID 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.
