STE_PRJ_SCANNED_MAP_BNDRY_SVW includes an index of the mapsheet grid location of Soils, Terrain, and Ecosystems projects. These maps are intended for on-screen viewing or printing. The majority of the maps have been geo-referenced. Project mapping may not cover the whole map grid area. Some maps are interim or draft and may have been superseded. Some files are of related legends and map project text. Associated scanned map boundary attributes describe the project map (project level metadata) and provide a link for downloading the map, plus links to related reports, geo-referenced maps, and GIS digital data available from other sources. ATTENTION - The IMAGE_URL link is only useable by BC government staff. Public users can download the scanned maps by using the ECOCAT_URL link. There is no charge for the scanned map files. Note that some maps and more recent mapping may also be available in digital GIS format. See - Ecosystem and Terrain Mapping Data Inventory.

Additional Information

Purpose

To provide a spatial index to the Terrestrial Ecosystem Information Project Scanned Maps to facilitate appropriate use of Terrestrial Ecosystem Information and mapping for resource management planning and decision making. This spatial index replaces the current user access to an Excel spreadsheet cataloguing the 3000+ images and data requests to the data contacts, who typically made the images available via ftp-download for users to view. The index to this dataset will facilitate self-serve downloading of images by BC government staff (and the public in the future) and will reduce the time-commitment of the data distributors.

For assistance identifying available scanned maps, follow the instructions.

Lineage Statement

Mapping is from individual inventories conducted across the province from the 1970's (or earlier) to the present.

'Interim' and 'draft' maps may have been superceded.

Some projects have been digitized to vector format and have undergone several phases of data conversion to or between different GIS data formats (e.g., DGN to ArcInfo to Geodatabase). In a limited number of these GIS files, coding may have been updated to current inventory standards.
