Object Description


Short Name: CONSR_PROP
Comments: CB_CONSRVTN_PROPERTIES_SP This Conservation Properties layer contains the land acquired through the East Kootenay Conservation Program (EKCP). Various stakeholders have title on the land but it is a team approach to securing the land. This layer records the geographic extent of the land acquired, area, PID, ownership, land managers and other attributes. The geographic extent of this layer is not limited to the East Kootenay. Properties have been acquired by the EKCP and its partners mainly within the East and West Kootenay, and North Columbia. This layer includes Covenants.

Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
CONSRVTN_PROPERTY_ID CNSVTN_ID NUMBER 10 CONSRVTN PROPERTY ID: A system generated identifier to ensure row uniqueness.
PROPERTY_ID PROP_ID VARCHAR2 20 PROPERTY ID: Generated sequence number for EKCP; new numbering based on alphabetical listing for use with table displayed on paper maps. In the future, we'll be unable to sort the table alphabetically and by property id. E.g., 001 up to 128 at present
PROPERTY_ID_CODE CID_PCL VARCHAR2 10 PROPERTY ID CODE: CID is Conservation ID [xx-xxx]. The first two numbers stand for the MOE Region that the parcel falls in (01-09) and the next three are arbitrarily assigned sequentially so that each project (of one or many parcels) is uniquely identified in each park region. The PLC is a sequential number for the parcels within a project, so that each parcel is uniquely identified. E.g., 04-017-002
PID PID VARCHAR2 20 PID: PID only added to dataset if it was available. The value of PID originated from Land Title Survey Authority. E.g., 008403783
PIN PIN VARCHAR2 20 PIN: Parcel Identification Number is only added to dataset if it was available. The value of PIN originated from Crown Land Registry E.g., 9209270
SITE_NAME SITE_NA VARCHAR2 50 SITE NAME: Commonly used property name; Added agency acronym added for multiple owners at one site E.g., Wycliffe - TLC
SITE_ALIAS SITE_AL VARCHAR2 50 SITE ALIAS: Lesser known name than Site Name; only added if there is confusion about the name
SITE_LOCATION LOCATION VARCHAR2 50 SITE LOCATION: Geographic location; common, local creek name usually E.g., Wolf Creek
OWNERSHIP_TYPE OWN_TYPE VARCHAR2 25 OWNERSHIP TYPE: Categorizes the type of ownership for each conservation property managed. E.g., Fee simple, Covenant, TAC (Transfer of administration and control), Other agreement.
CROWN_TENURE_TYPE CR_TN_TYP VARCHAR2 20 CROWN TENURE TYPE: This attribute is only populated for ownership types with the value Crown land tenure which includes grazing permits, or woodlots licenses.

FEATURE_CODE F_CODE VARCHAR2 10 FEATURE CODE contains a value based on the Canadian Council of Surveys and Mapping's (CCSM) system for classification of geographic features.
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.
