For display on a screen or paper plot over data displayed in BC Albers projection, as orientation for those who use UTM coordinates. An attribute on the lines corresponds to their UTM coordinate locations.
Generated geometrically in UTM projection, then re-projected to BC Albers.

Object Name: WHSE_BASEMAPPING.UTMG_GRIDLINES_1K_SP
Short Name: UTM_GRD1K
Comments: set of lines which represent the Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) grid system expressed in the BCAlbers projection. Lines of Easting and Northing are provided at every 1,000 metres UTM (1 Kilometres). Grid lines cover the extent of British Columbia.
|Column Name||Short Name||Data Type||Data Precision||Comments|
|GRIDLINES_1K_SP_ID||GRD_1KSID||NUMBER||10||Primary unique numeric identifier for a 1 km UTM Grid Line.|
|FEATURE_CODE||FEAT_CODE||VARCHAR2||10||A standard numeric 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.|
|DIMENSION||DIMENSION||VARCHAR2||1||The axis that UTM grid line will represent. Two values are acceptable - X refers to a line which will represent the UTM Northing grid line as expressed in BCAlbers., Y refers to a line which will represent the UTM Easting grid line as expressed in BCAlbers.|
|UTM_ZONE||UTM_ZONE||NUMBER||2||The UTM Zone number for British Columbia. Zones numbers range from 7 - 11.|
|GEOMETRY||GEOMETRY||SDO_GEOMETRY||1||GEOMETRY is the column used to reference the spatial coordinates defining the feature.|
|OBJECTID||OBJECTID||NUMBER||38||OBJECTID is a required attribute of feature classes and object classes in a geodatabase.|
|SE_ANNO_CAD_DATA||BLOB||4000||SE_ANNO_CAD_DATA is a binary column used by spatial tools to store annotation, curve features and CAD data when using the SDO_GEOMETRY storage data type.|
|FEATURE_LENGTH_M||FEAT_LEN||NUMBER||19||FEATURE_LENGTH_M is the system calculated length or perimeter of a geometry in meters|
