Object Description

Object Name: WHSE_WILDLIFE_MANAGEMENT.WCP_UNGULATE_WINTER_RANGE_SP

Short Name: WCP_UWR_SP
Comments: A mapped area of habitat with associated species-specific management requirements. These areas have been approved under the authority of the Forest Practices Code and the Forest and Range Practices Act. This is a logical entity and not implemented physically.A mapped area of habitat required for the winter survival of ungulate species. Associated with the mapped areas are species-specific management requirements. These areas have been approved under the authority of the Forest Practices Code and the Forest and Range Practices Act.

Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
UWR_NUMBER UWR_TAG VARCHAR2 14 UWR NUMBER is an alphanumeric tag identifying the group of polygons (units) in the Ungulate Winter Range (UWR), e.g., u-7-001, where "u" is constant and "7" is the Ministry of Environment region number.
UWR_UNIT_NUMBER UNIT_NO VARCHAR2 14 UWR UNIT NUMBER is a unique alphanumeric string assigned to each polygon unit within a group of polygons that have the same UWR Tag. e.g., 18
SPECIES_1 SPECIES_1 VARCHAR2 30 SPECIES 1 is a species code identifying the primary species in the UWR. e.g., M-ODHE
SPECIES_2 SPECIES_2 VARCHAR2 30 SPECIES 2 is the species code identifying secondary or other species in the UWR. e.g., M-CEEL
APPROVAL_DATE APPRV_DATE DATE 7 APPROVAL DATE is the date approved by the Statutory Decision Maker. e.g., 19/06/2003
