Object Name: WHSE_ADMIN_BOUNDARIES.ADM_BC_PARKS_SECTIONS_SP
Short Name: PARK_SEC
Comments: This layer contains Sub Region management areas within the Provincial Parks and Protected Areas (BC Parks) Region boundaries structure. Boundaries were compiled existing provincial 1:20,000 cadastral, TRIM and watershed data and/or provincial Legal Surveys Division's cadastral datasets existing in the provincial land title registry systems., Large scale Integrated Cadastral (large scale) may have been used in specific park data. This layer utilizes multi-part polygon geometry.
