Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
GRIZZLY_BEAR_POP_UNIT_ID GBPU_ID NUMBER 10 GRIZZLY_BEAR_POP_UNIT_ID is a system generated unique identification number.
GRIZZLY_BEAR_POPULATION_TAG GBPU_TAG NUMBER 10 GRIZZLY_BEAR_POPULATION_TAG is a business key for the population unit. It consists of a positive non-zero integer which can be null, e.g., 11.
POPULATION_NAME GBPU_NAME VARCHAR2 50 POPULATION_NAME is the business name for the population unit. It consists of a short textual identifier, such as a habitat specialist name or a regional expert, e.g., Blackwater-West Chilcotin.
DISPLAY_NAME GBPU_DISP VARCHAR2 60 DISPLAY_NAME is the formatted display name to allow for label stacking, e.g., Blackwater-\West Chilcotin.
STATUS GBPUSTATUS VARCHAR2 20 STATUS is the status or health of a population in a grizzly bear population unit., e.g., Viable, Threatened, Extirpated.
WITHIN_BC_IND GPBU_W_BC VARCHAR2 3 WITHIN_BC_IND is the flag if the population units is in BC, e.g., Y, N.
VERSION_NAME GBPU_VERS VARCHAR2 6 VERSION_NAME is the name of the version of the population units, e.g., 2003A, 2003B, 2005, 2011.
VERSION_YEAR_MODIFIED GBPU_YRMOD NUMBER 4 VERSION_YEAR_MODIFIED is the year of the modification to match for example, prior hunting regulations of the year.
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
