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_TRACKS_SP

Short Name: RW_TRACK
Comments: GBA RAILWAY TRACKS SP contains railway tracks within BC from the National Railway Network (NRWN) dataset. In the real world, a Track provides a guide for the movement of trains and other equipment. In general, one linear feature represents the two rails of a Track. A Track is bounded by two Junction points and is segmented at each change in attributes along its course. All attributes relating to distance are expressed in miles and attributes relating to speed are expressed in miles per hour.
