Dataset Extent

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

Additional Information

Purpose

This data is used to support analysis within Cariboo Region mule deer winter ranges.

Lineage Statement

[Slope_Category] is based on the slope percentage from 25m raster slope tiles.
- Flat: 0-10% slope
- Moderate: 11-30% slope
- Steep: 31-60% slope
- Very Steep: >60% slope

[Aspect_Category] is based on aspect degree from 25m raster aspect tiles.
- Cool: 316-60 degrees
- Moderate: 271-315 degrees or 61-135 degrees
- Warm: 136-270 degrees

[Slope_Aspect_Category] is derived from the [Slope_Category] and [Aspect_Category] fields. Values range from 1-10.
- 1: Slope_Category = Flat & Aspect_Category = any value;
- 2: Slope_Category = Moderate & Aspect_Category = Cool;
- 3: Slope_Category = Steep & Aspect_Category = Cool;
- 4: Slope_Category = Very Steep & Aspect_Category = Cool;
- 5: Slope_Category = Moderate & Aspect_Category = Moderate;
- 6: Slope_Category = Steep & Aspect_Category = Moderate;
- 7: Slope_Category = Very Steep & Aspect_Category = Moderate;
- 8: Slope_Category = Moderate & Aspect_Category = Warm;
- 9: Slope_Category = Steep & Aspect_Category = Warm;
- 10: Slope_Category = Very Steep & Aspect_Category = Warm
