Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
NCAR_HAB_ITCHA_ILGACHUZ_ID NHII_ID NUMBER 10 NCAR HAB ITCHA ILGACHUZ ID is a system generated unique identification number. This is a primary key.
HABITAT_CLASS_CODE_COMPONENT_1 HABCLASS1 VARCHAR2 25 HABITAT CLASS CODE COMPONENT 1 represents the habitat class code of the first polygon component. Example: DL = Dry Lichen, LM = Lichen-Moss, SF = Seepage Forest, etc.
AGE_CLASS_CODE_COMPONENT_1A AGECLASS1A NUMBER 1 AGE CLASS CODE COMPONENT 1A represents the dominant age class code for the first polygon component. Values are from 0 to 5.
AGE_CLASS_CODE_COMPONENT_1B AGECLASS1B NUMBER 1 AGE CLASS CODE COMPONENT 1B represents the secondary age class code for the first polygon component, if there is one. Values are from 0 to 5. Blank/Null values mean there is no secondary age class.
LABEL_CODE_COMPONENT_1 COMP1 NUMBER 1 LABEL CODE COMPONENT 1 is used to determine the number of forward slashes to follow the first component label. Example: 0 = none (only one polygon component), 1 = / (polygon habitat components are approximately equal), 2 = // (preceding component is dominant over the following component - no percentage implied)

AGE_CLASS_CODE_COMPONENT_2B AGECLASS2B NUMBER 1 AGE CLASS CODE COMPONENT 2B represents secondary age class code for the second polygon component, if there is one. Values are from 0 to 5. Blank/Null values mean there is no secondary age class.
LABEL_CODE_COMPONENT_2 COMP2 NUMBER 1 LABEL CODE COMPONENT 2: Used to determine the number of forward slashes to follow the second component label. Example: 0 = none (only one polygon component), 1 = / (polygon habitat components are approximately equal), 2 = // (preceding component is dominant over the following component - no percentage implied)
