Latitude: 48.0° to 60.0°
Longitude: -139.5° to -113.5°

Additional Information

Purpose

Biobanding Lines represent various types of biota (flora and fauna) and their distribution

Data Quality

The British Columbia Coastal Resource Information System (CRIMS) is an internet based interactive map for viewing coastal and marine data. A wide variety of coast and marine resources are included, such as aquaculture, shoreline classification, selected fisheries information, and offshore oil and gas information. The development of the Coastal Resource Information System is ongoing. The application provides access to data currently held in the BC Geographic Warehouse. As additional layers are added to the BCGW, subsequent releases of the application will include these additional layers and further enhancements.

Lineage Statement

This dataset was formally a depiction of the SHZN_BIOBANDING_LINES_SVW warehouse layer.

Object Description

Object Name: WHSE_ENVIRONMENTAL_MONITORING.SHZN_BIOBANDING_LINES_SV

Short Name: BIOB_LN_V

Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
PHYIDENT PHYIDENT VARCHAR2 4000 PHYIDENT is a 13-character slash-delimited (/) concatenation of the shoreunits REGION, SECTION, UNIT and SUBUNIT that uniquely identifies the shoreunit for use in the shorezone mapping system, e.g., 01/02/0345/01.
REGION REGION NUMBER 2 REGION is a unique number assigned to a particular region. A region is a large subdivision area of a project used for administrative purposes. The regions are numbered 1 to 13, e.g., 1, 2, 3.
SECTION SECTION NUMBER 2 SECTION is a unique number assigned to a particular section of a region. A section is a subdivision of a region used for administrative purposes, e.g., 1, 2, 3.
UNIT UNIT NUMBER 4 UNIT is a number assigned to the primary unit of measure in the shorezone coverage. This main subdivision of a SECTION forms the "along-shore" physical unit. There are a maximum of 9,999 UNITS within a SECTION, i.e. 1324.
SUBUNIT SUBUNIT NUMBER 38 SUBUNIT is a number used to show the across-shore component of the shoreline. In the PHYIDENT, the SUBUNIT portion is at the end of the phyident and typically has a leading "0". A subunit of 00 signifies a homogeneous unit while subunits identified with 01, 02, etc. signify variants or anomalies in the unit, usually features that have only a short alongshore length, e.g., 0,1,2.
ZONE ZONE VARCHAR2 1 ZONE is a unique alphabetic identifier based on the relative elevation of the component with respect to the intertidal zone, i.e., A (supratidal), B (intertidal), C (subtidal).
COMPONENT COMPONENT NUMBER 38 COMPONENT is an integer that represents a subdivision of the Zone sequenced from landward to seaward. The number 99 is used when the component is unknown, e.g., 1, 3, 99.
