The information about Land Districts represented in this view can be used to support a variety of purposes including, but not limited to: land use planning processes (e.g. Forest Stewardship Planning); statutory processes (e.g. free miner notification under the Mineral Tenure Act); and timber supply review processes. The Land Districts represented in this view are a subset of the Crown tenure types held in the Crown Land Registry system (Tantalis).
80% accurate. With the exception of unsurveyed (digitized) boundaries, the cadastral data is captured at a 1:1 scale.

Object Name: WHSE_TANTALIS.TA_LAND_DISTRICTS_SVW
Short Name: TA_LD_SVW
Comments: TA_LAND_DISTRICT_SVW contains the spatial representation (polygon) of the current extent of the administrative areas defined under Section 2 of the Land Act as Land Districts. The was created to provide a simplified view of this data from the administrative boundaries information in the Tantalis operational system. These administrative regions are defined under Section 2 of the Land Act for the purpose of managing and uniquely identifying cadastral survey parcels.
|Column Name||Short Name||Data Type||Data Precision||Comments|
|ADMIN_AREA_SID||ADMIN_AREA||NUMBER||38||ADMIN_AREA_SID is a system-generated sequential identifier that uniquely represents the land district amongst all administrative areas stored in the Tantalis system.|
|LAND_DISTRICT_NAME||LD_NAME||VARCHAR2||50||LAND_DISTRICT_NAME is the commonly used reference for the Land District in notices and legal descriptions. For example, NORTH SAANICH DISTRICT refers to the extent on Vancouver Island defined under Section 2 of the Land Act.|
|FEATURE_CODE||FEAT_CODE||VARCHAR2||10||FEATURE CODE is a standard alphanumeric code to identify the type of feature represented by the spatial data. A feature code is most importantly a means of linking a feature to its name and definition. For example, the code GB15300120 on a digital geographic feature links it to the name "Lake - Dry" with the definition "A lake bed from which all water has drained or evaporated." The feature code does NOT mark when it was digitized, what dataset it belongs to, how accurate it is, what it should look like when plotted, or who is responsible for updating it. It only says what it represents in the real world. It also doesn't even matter how the lake is represented. If it is a very small lake, it may be stored as a point feature. If it is large enough to have a shape at the scale of data capture, it may be stored as an outline, or a closed polygon. The same feature code still links it to the same definition.|
|SHAPE||SHAPE||SDO_GEOMETRY||64||SHAPE is an ArcSDE column that references the spatial feature's coordinate geometry.|
|OBJECTID||OBJECTID||NUMBER||38||OBJECTID is a required attribute of feature classes and object classes in a geodatabase.|
