Object Name: WHSE_IMAGERY_AND_BASE_MAPS.DRP_DISASTER_RESPONSE_POINT_SP

Short Name: DIS_RSP_PN
Comments: DISASTER RESPONSE POINT SP contains locations of emergency response sites for the movement of goods, people and freight, either by air, road, rail or marine. Emergency response sites may also be known as Muster Points. This layer is provincial and contains point geometry.

Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
MUSTER_POINT_ID SITE_ID VARCHAR2 35 MUSTER POINT ID is a unique code based on the Province code, municipality and a numeric/character string, Example: BCSYAA01A. It will be the primary key. This will be a unique value.
MUSTER_ZONE_ID MSTRZND VARCHAR2 50 MUSTER ZONE ID is the Disaster Response zone that the Disaster Response point belongs with (Muster Zone-ID). Secondary Disaster Response Points do not belong to a Muster Zone so will have a null value, but may be used in an emergency if another Muster Point is inoperable.
SITE_ADDRESS ADDRESS VARCHAR2 41 SITE ADDRESS is the street address for a muster point. This will be contained in a free format in one string. It can be parsed in the future to meet geocoding standards set by GeoBC.
CITY CITY VARCHAR2 50 CITY is part of the site address used in Geo Coding and will contain just the city/municipality where the disaster response point resides. Having the city stored this way will reduce errors in addresses of similar names.
MUSTER_POINT_TYPE SITE_TYPE VARCHAR2 10 MUSTER POINT TYPE describes the mode of transportation, either Air, Road, rail or Marine or if it is a Reporting Point. It also describes the transport capacity for the 4 modes. Ie. W,w,R,r,F,f (High or low capacity for Walk-on Walk-off, Freight, or Roll-on or Roll-off).
MUSTER_POINT_STATE_IND SITE_STATE VARCHAR2 10 MUSTER POINT STATE IND is a status of the disaster response point. It will contain one of three values: "Primary", "Secondary" or "Archived".
CAPABILITY CAPABILITY NUMBER 4 CAPABILITY is a lookup for a font symbol for Muster zones. This value determines which symbol is displayed graphically with respect to the sites: Air, Road, Rail and Marine. E.g., 1100 means there are air and road capability in the site.
ARCHIVED_DATE ARCHIVD_DT DATE 7 ARCHIVED DATE. Indicates the date the disaster response point was removed from a primary state.
MUSTER_POINT_NAME SITE_NAME VARCHAR2 50 MUSTER POINT NAME is the location of the disaster response site. It is a more detailed description of the local geography so that people know exactly where to report. I.e. Hangar Building 3 of Boundary Bay Airport.
LATITUDE LATITUDE NUMBER 9 LATITUDE is the latitude of the muster point. Latitude is the geographic coordinate, in decimal degrees (dd.dddddd), of the location of the feature as measured from the equator. E.g. 55.323653
LONGITUDE LONGITUDE NUMBER 9 LONGITUDE is the longitude of the muster point. Longitude is the geographic coordinate, in decimal degrees (dd.dddddd), of the location of the feature as measured from the prime meridian. E.g. -123.093544
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.
