TA_WILDLIFE_MGMT_AREAS_SVW contains the spatial representation (polygon) of the areas under the administration and control of the Conservation Lands Program of the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development and designated as Wildlife Management Areas under the Wildlife Act due to the significance of their wildlife/fish values. The view was created to provide a simplified view of this data from the administrative boundaries information in the Tantalis operational system

Additional Information

Purpose

The information about Wildlife Management Areas represented in this view can be used to support a variety of purposes including, but not limited to: land use planning processes (e.g. Forest Stewardship Planning); statutory processes (e.g. free miner notification under the Mineral Tenure Act); and timber supply review processes. The Wildlife Management Areas represented in this view are a subset of the Crown tenure types held in the Crown Land Registry system (Tantalis).

Lineage Statement

80% accurate. With the exception of unsurveyed (digitized) boundaries, the cadastral data is captured at a 1:1 scale.

Object Description

Object Name: WHSE_TANTALIS.TA_WILDLIFE_MGMT_AREAS_SVW

Short Name: TA_WMA_SVW
Comments: TA_WILDLIFE_MGMT_AREAS_SVW contains the spatial representation (polygon) of the areas for which administration and control has been transferred to the Ministry of Environment (MoE) via the Land Act due to the significance of their wildlife/fish values and designated as Wildlife Management Areas under the Wildlife Act. The view was created to provide a simplified view of this data from the administrative boundaries information in the Tantalis operational system.

Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
ADMIN_AREA_SID ADMIN_AREA NUMBER 38 ADMIN_AREA_SID is a system-generated sequential identifier that uniquely represents the wildlife management area amongst all administrative areas stored in the Tantalis system.
WILDLIFE_MANAGEMENT_AREA_NAME MGMT_AR_NM VARCHAR2 50 WILDLIFE_MANAGEMENT_AREA_NAME is the commonly used reference in notices and correspondence for the areas designated as Wildlife Management Areas under the Wildlife Act. For example, COLUMBIA WETLANDS refers to the extent in British Columbia defined in the Wildlife Act as being administered by the Ministry of Environment.
ORCS_PRIMARY ORC_PRIMRY VARCHAR2 4 ORCS - Operational Records Classification System means the government-widestandard for classification, filing, retrieval, vital records and freedom of information andprotection of privacy designations, and disposition scheduling of operational records.
ORCS_SECONDARY ORC_SCNDRY VARCHAR2 2 ORCS - Operational Records Classification System means the government-widestandard for classification, filing, retrieval, vital records and freedom of information andprotection of privacy designations, and disposition scheduling of operational records.
FEATURE_CODE F_CODE VARCHAR2 10 FEATURE CODE is a standard alphanumeric code to identify the type of feature represented by the spatial data. A feature code is most importantly a means of linking a feature to its name and definition. For example, the code GB15300120 on a digital geographic feature links it to the name "Lake - Dry" with the definition "A lake bed from which all water has drained or evaporated." The feature code does NOT mark when it was digitized, what dataset it belongs to, how accurate it is, what it should look like when plotted, or who is responsible for updating it. It only says what it represents in the real world. It also doesn't even matter how the lake is represented. If it is a very small lake, it may be stored as a point feature. If it is large enough to have a shape at the scale of data capture, it may be stored as an outline, or a closed polygon. The same feature code still links it to the same definition.
SHAPE SHAPE SDO_GEOMETRY 64 SHAPE is an ArcSDE column that references the spatial feature's coordinate geometry.
FEATURE_AREA_SQM FEAT_AREA NUMBER 19
FEATURE_LENGTH_M FEAT_LEN NUMBER 19
OBJECTID OBJECTID NUMBER 38 OBJECTID is a required attribute of feature classes and object classes in a geodatabase.
