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_JUNCTIONS_SP

Short Name: RW_JNCTN
Comments: GBA RAILWAY JUNCTIONS SP contains railway junctions within BC from the National Railway Network (NRWN) dataset. A junction is a virtual connector point feature of the NRWN. A junction may be located: at the intersection of three of more sets of tracks; at the track end; at the transition of a national, provincial or territorial boundary; and at the beginning and end of a Track Subdivision.
