Lineage Statement

The method used for data acquisition is determined by each data provider. The selected method must allow for the acquisition of quality geospatial data (current, accurate, consistent) for the entire dataset. Many acquisition sources are used: GPS, orthoimages, orthophotos, photogrammetry. Acquisition technique [both for original acquisition and data revision] used by the provider is indicated in the object metadata associated with each feature occurrence.

Object Description

Object Name: WHSE_BASEMAPPING.GBA_RAILWAY_CROSSINGS_SP

Short Name: RW_CRSSING
Comments: GBA RAILWAY CROSSINGS SP contains railway crossings within BC from the National Railway Network (NRWN) dataset. Crossings were created using the provincial road network. All attributes relating to distance are expressed in miles.
