Phase 1 Historical Grasslands Mapping for the Southern Interior Region (SIR) {Ministry of Forests (MOF) regional administrative unit} - grasslands lost to agricultural & urban development.Coverage of clearings, cultivated land & urban areas adjacent to existing Open Range (OR) polygons and/or within selected NDT4 zones; many of these areas represent "conversions" from open native grassland.Coverage includes selected clearings, cultivated land & urban areas in the Williams Lake, Chilcotin, 100 Mile House, Lillooet, Merritt, Kamloops, Okanagan, Boundary, Invermere and Cranbrook Forest Districts.Each "converted" polygon in this coverage contains the field "HIST_GRS_PERCEN" which is an attempt to determine the percentage of that polygon historically supporting open native grassland. The field "HIST_GRS_AREA" is a derived value equal to the total p

Purpose

This dataset was created to provide information to support informed management decisions for land and natural resource planning including wildlife management, protection of biodiversity and/or BCs resource based industries.1) to delineate clearings, cultivated land & urban areas, many of which represent "conversions" from open native grassland 2) to approximate the % of southern interior grasslands lost to agricultural & urban development (total all numerical values from fi
