Object Description

Object Name: WHSE_MINERAL_TENURE.OG_WELL_NAMING_INDEX_SP

Short Name: W_NAME_IND
Comments: WELL NAMING INDEX SP is a polygon layer representing index of geographic names and associated areas which provide geographic references in the naming of wells where few pre-existing oil and gas fields have been designated. The areas in the well naming index are to be used for well naming only if the well is outside of any existing field boundary. This is not a multipart feature class.

Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
OG_WELL_NAMING_INDEX_ID GWLLNMNGND NUMBER 10 OG WELL NAMING INDEX ID is a system generated identifier to ensure row uniqueness.
WELL_INDEX_NAME WLLNDXNM VARCHAR2 50 WELL INDEX NAME is the name of the geographic area to be used for well naming purposes in areas where oil and gas fields do not already exist. E.g., Clarke Lake
FEATURE_CODE FTRCD VARCHAR2 10 FEATURE CODE contains a value based on the Canadian Council of Surveys and Mapping's (CCSM) system for classification of geographic features. E.g., AR82000110
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
