The Georgia Basin Boundary dataset displays the extent of the Georgia Basin Ecosystem Initiative undertaken by the federal, provincial, and municipal governments. The objectives of the project are to support initiatives for clean air, clean water, habitat and species protection, and improved environmental decision-making in the Georgia Basin. The dataset consists of both a polygon layer and line layer

Object Description

Object Name: WHSE_ADMIN_BOUNDARIES.ENVCAN_GEORGIA_BASIN_BND_POLY

Short Name: GB_BDY_PLY
Comments: The Georgia Basin Boundary Polygon (GEORGIA BASIN BND POLY) is the a spatial feature delineating the Georgia Basin area. This is not a multipart feature.

Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
GEORGIA_BASIN_BND_ID GB_BND_ID NUMBER 10 GEORGIA BASIN BND ID is the unique numeric identifier for a spatial feature.
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.
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_AREA_SQM NUMBER 19 FEATURE_AREA_SQM is the system calculated area of a two-dimensional polygon in square meters
FEATURE_LENGTH_M NUMBER 19 FEATURE_LENGTH_M is the system calculated length or perimeter of a geometry in meters
