Object Description


Comments: The Ministry now uses the OIL GAS GRID POLY to describe tenures for oil and gas, coal, and gas. The PNG grid uses the National Topographic System (NTS) series of maps published by Natural Resources Canada. It is based on latitude and longitude in North American Datum (NAD) 27. To produce the PNG grid, each 1:50,000 map-sheet was divided into a 10x10 grid, with each cell called a unit. Geographically, each unit is 30 seconds by 45 seconds. At the 49th parallel, the cell measures about 84.7 hectares. Geometry: Polygonal multipart feature

Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
GRID_ID GRID_ID VARCHAR2 10 The unique identification label of the PNG grid section. This label is composed using the identification label's from both the petroleum_natural_gas_gri d_id and the petroleum_natural_gas_gri d mapsheet grid identification labels.
MAP_SHEET_ID MPSHTD VARCHAR2 4 The mapsheet name (ex. 094A)
MAP_GROUP_ID MPGRPD VARCHAR2 2 The mapgroup name (ex. 16). Range 1-16
MAP_BLOCK_ID MPBLCKD VARCHAR2 2 The mapblock name (ex. C). Ranges A-L
MAP_UNIT_ID MPNTD VARCHAR2 3 The mapunit number (ex. 057). Ranges 1-100
CALC_UNIT_AREA CLCNTR NUMBER 10 The calculated area of the unit (in UTM) - will be used later
LABEL LABEL VARCHAR2 30 A label used to identify the level of the grid being viewed - used later
FEATURE_CODE FTRCD VARCHAR2 10 A feature code is most importantly a means of linking a feature to its name and definition.
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 AREA_SQM NUMBER 19 FEATURE_AREA_SQM is the system calculated area of a two-dimensional polygon in square meters
FEATURE_LENGTH_M FEAT_LEN NUMBER 19 FEATURE_LENGTH_M is the system calculated length or perimeter of a geometry in meters
