ParcelMap BC is the single, complete, trusted and sustainable electronic map of active titled parcels and surveyed provincial Crown land parcels in British Columbia. This particular dataset is a subset of the complete ParcelMap BC data and is comprised of the parcel fabric and attributes for over two million published under the Open Government License - British Columbia.

Notes:

  1. Parcel title information is sourced from the BC Land Title Register. Title questions should be directed to a local Land Title Office.

  2. The ParcelMap BC Parcel Fabric is expected to eventually replace the Integrated Cadastral Fabric.

Additional Information

Purpose

ParcelMap BC provides a single-source, up to date representation of titled and surveyed Crown land parcels in British Columbia. This provides for improved speed and efficiency of land-related research province-wide, facilitating planning and business decisions through the current spatial representation of a given parcel and its relationship to adjacent parcels. ParcelMap BC helps support faster and more accurate real property transactions while minimizing possible data discrepancies and confusion by reducing the need to consult separate spatial systems in British Columbia.

Data Quality

ParcelMap BC is the single, complete, trusted and sustainable electronic map of active titled parcels and surveyed provincial Crown land parcels in British Columbia. The data is continually updated by the ParcelMap BC Operations Team at the Land Title and Survey Authority of BC in response to events which change the parcel fabric, including new survey plans accepted from land surveyors. Spatial adjustments are periodically applied to improve the parcel fabric alignment to provincial survey systems and georeferencing standards by using survey information provided on the survey plans and published control monumentation.

Lineage Statement

ParcelMap BC data is continually updated by the ParcelMap BC Operations team at the Land Title and Survey Authority of BC. New plans and other parcel fabric updates enter the maintenance queue upon registration or confirmation with an update publication service target of approximately two business days. The B.C. Government currently refreshes this view of the ParcelMap BC data on a weekly cycle.

Object Description

Object Name: WHSE_CADASTRE.PMBC_PARCEL_FABRIC_POLY_SVW

Short Name: PMBC_PF_O
Comments: The ParcelMap BC (PMBC) parcel fabric contains all active titled parcels and surveyed provincial Crown land parcels in BC. This dataset is polygonal and contains all parcel attributes licensed under the BC Open Government License.

Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
PARCEL_FABRIC_POLY_ID POLY_ID NUMBER 10 PARCEL_FABRIC_POLY_ID is a system generated unique identification number.
PARCEL_NAME PARCEL_NM VARCHAR2 50 PARCEL_NAME is the same as the PID, if there is one. If there is a PIN but no PID, then PARCEL_NAME is the PIN. If there is no PID nor PIN, then PARCEL_NAME is the parcel class value, e.g., COMMON OWNERSHIP, BUILDING STRATA, AIR SPACE, ROAD, PARK.
PLAN_NUMBER PLAN_NUM VARCHAR2 128 PLAN_NUMBER is the Land Act, Land Title Act, or Strata Property Act Plan Number for the land survey plan that corresponds to this parcel, e.g., VIP1632, NO_PLAN.
PIN PIN NUMBER 10 PIN is the Crown Land Registry Parcel Identifier, if applicable.
PID PID NUMBER 10 PID is the Land Title Register parcel identifier, a nine-digit number that uniquely identifies a parcel in the land title register of in British Columbia. The registrar assigns PID numbers to parcels for which a title is being entered as a registered title. The Land Title Act refers to the PID as the permanent parcel identifier.
PARCEL_STATUS STATUS VARCHAR2 20 PARCEL_STATUS is the status of the parcel, according to the Land Title Register or Crown Land Registry, as appropriate, i.e., ACTIVE, CANCELLED, INACTIVE, PENDING.
PARCEL_CLASS CLASS VARCHAR2 50 PARCEL_CLASS is the Parcel classification for maintenance, mapping, publishing and analysis, i.e., PRIMARY, SUBDIVISION, PART OF PRIMARY, BUILDING STRATA, BARE LAND STRATA, AIR SPACE, ROAD, HIGHWAY, PARK, INTEREST, COMMON OWNERSHIP, ABSOLUTE FEE BOOK, CROWN SUBDIVISION, RETURN TO CROWN.
OWNER_TYPE OWNER_TYPE VARCHAR2 50 OWNER_TYPE is the general ownership category, e.g., PRIVATE, CROWN PROVINCIAL, MUNICIPAL.
PARCEL_START_DATE START_DATE DATE 7 PARCEL_START_DATE is the date of the legal event that created the parcel, i.e., the date the plan was filed.
MUNICIPALITY MUNI VARCHAR2 254 MUNICIPALITY is the municipal area within which the parcel is located. The value is either RURAL (for parcels in unincorporated regions) or the name of a BC municipality.
REGIONAL_DISTRICT REG_DIST VARCHAR2 50 REGIONAL_DISTRICT is the name of the regional district in which the parcel is located, e.g., CAPITAL REGIONAL DISTRICT.
WHEN_UPDATED UPDATED DATE 7 WHEN_UPDATED is the date and time the record was last modified.
FEATURE_AREA_SQM FT_AR_SQM NUMBER 19 FEATURE_AREA_SQM is the system calculated area of a two-dimensional polygon in square meters.
FEATURE_LENGTH_M FT_LNGTH_M NUMBER 19 FEATURE_LENGTH_M is the system calculated length or perimeter of a geometry in meters.
SHAPE SHAPE SDO_GEOMETRY 64 SHAPE is the column used to reference the spatial coordinates defining the feature.
OBJECTID OBJECTID NUMBER 38 OBJECTID is a column required by spatial layers that interact with ESRI ArcSDE. It is populated with unique values automatically by SDE.
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.
