Comments: A FERRY ROUTE is a line that represents the route a marine vessel follows while carrying passengers, freight or vehicles from one destination to another.
|Column Name||Short Name||Data Type||Data Precision||Comments|
|FERRY_ROUTE_ID||FERRY_ID||NUMBER||10||FERRY ROUTE ID is the unique Identifier for a particular ferry route. This is a primary key, e.g., 1,2,3|
|ROUTE_NAME||ROUTE||VARCHAR2||100||ROUTE NAME is a mandatory textual description of the two (or more) locations between which the ferry travels. In some cases, the ROUTE NAME is also an indication of the type of ferry service offered, e.g., North Thormanby Island Water Taxi, Swartz Bay - Fulford Harbour|
|MANIFEST_TYPE||TYPE||VARCHAR2||30||MANIFEST TYPE is a textual description of the type of cargo carried by the ferry, e.g., passenger, freight, vehicle, passenger and freight, all|
|ROUTE_OPERATOR||OPERATOR||VARCHAR2||50||ROUTE OPERATOR is the name of the company or corporation that is responsible for the daily operation of the ferry, e.g., BC Ferries, Van Isle Barge Services Ltd.|
|ROUND_TRIP_USAGE||ROUND_TRIP||NUMBER||5||ROUND TRIP USAGE is an estimate of the number of MANIFEST TYPE units that are ferried back and forth (round trip) from one starting point on the route to the other end of the route and back to the starting point. So, for example, if the ROUND TRIP USAGE is 1350 and the MANIFEST TYPE is "freight and vehicles", this means that this FERRY ROUTE transports 1350 freight and vehicles per round trip. Some of the ferry routes that support higher traffic have more than one ferry on the route. One ferry starts at one end and the other ferry starts at the other end. The ROUND TRIP USAGE for higher traffic routes is the combined total units tranported by all the ferries on the route, e.g., 1350|
|FREQUENCY_OF_USE_IND||FREQ_USE||VARCHAR2||10||FREQUENCY OF USE IND is a textual indication of the usage load of the ferry. FREQUENCY OF USE IND will be one of the following: Very Low, Low, Moderate, High, Very High, Unknown.|
|DATA_SOURCE||DATA_SRC||VARCHAR2||50||DATA SOURCE is an indication of the source of the information used to place the FERRY ROUTE linework, e.g., Digital Road Atlas|
|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|
