The Shoreunit lines is part of the Physical Shore-Zone Mapping System. It is a scheme designed for the classification of the shoreline type, materials, forms and processes that occur or operate along the coast of British Columbia. It has been specifically developed to provide an inventory of the physical character of the shore-zone and to show their distribution, extent and location.

Additional Information

Purpose

It has been specifically developed to provide an inventory of the physical character of the shore-zone and to show their distribution, extent and location. The system is scale independent and provides base data applicable for a wide range of natural resource applications including planning, management, impact assessment and oil spill response. The data is conveyed in map and database forms, and is conducive to computer digital storage, management and processing.

Data Quality

Data was updated in April of 2014 in the form of a File Geodatabase of all of the spatial and the associated tables for the data. This file does not contain the link to the attribute data. A data use agreement between GeoBC and the users must be signed in order to have access to the fully attributed dataset.
