Object Description


Short Name: FADM_TFL

Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
FEATURE_ID FEATURE_ID VARCHAR2 32 FEATURE_ID is a Provincially unique identifier for an instance of a spatial feature, e.g., 1021, 121, 411, 626.
MAP_BLOCK_ID MP_BLK_ID VARCHAR2 4 MAP_BLOCK_ID defines a geographical block of an area in the case where the area is defined by disjoint polygons.
EFFECTIVE_DATE EFF_DATE DATE 7 EFFECTIVE DATE is the date the legislation took effect.
RETIREMENT_DATE RETIRE_DT DATE 7 RETIREMEMT_DATE indicates when a feature was retired.
COMMENTS COMMENTS VARCHAR2 255 COMMENTS is a user defined comment about the data.
FOREST_FILE_ID FOR_FL_ID VARCHAR2 10 FOREST_FILE_ID is the file identification assigned to Provincial Forest Use files, e.g., TFL1, TFL47, TFL6.
FEATURE_CODE FCODE VARCHAR2 10 FEATURE_CODE contains an alphanumeric value based on the Canadian Council of Surveys and Mapping’s (CCSM) system for classification of geographic features, e.g., AR82000110.
WHO_UPDATED WHO_UPDT VARCHAR2 32 WHO_UPDATED is the USERID of the individual who last updated the information.
WHEN_UPDATED WHEN_UPDT DATE 7 WHEN_UPDATED is the date and time of the last update.
FEATURE_CLASS_SKEY FC_SKEY NUMBER 38 FEATURE CLASS SKEY is the unique key assigned to a Feature Class by the Ministry of Forests where a Feature Class is used to define a class of geographic items having the same basic set of characteristics, i.e., 830.
OBJECT_VERSION_SKEY OBJVR_SKEY NUMBER 28 OBJECT_VERSION_SKEY is the unique identifer for the object instance, e.g., 25, 1021, 5500, 10301.
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 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.
