Intended for overlay onto data in BC Albers to show Universal Transverse Mercator 6-degree zones. UTM projection is commonly used for surveying, forestry, and engineering data. This coverage provides a simple, queryable overlay to show the boundaries and numbers of the UTM zones. It extends over all of British Columbia, and well out into the Pacific Ocean and surrounding provinces and states.
Created at BC Ministry of Sustainable Resource Management Information Management Branch from an earlier coverage autm_na, which was created at BC Environment System Services Branch Feb 1997. Log file contains a lot of post-processing commands.

Object Name: WHSE_BASEMAPPING.UTMG_UTM_ZONES_SP
Short Name: UTMG_ZONES
Comments: UTM ZONES SP represent Universal Transverse Mercator Zones over the Province of British Columbia created as polygons, and re-projected to BC Albers projection. This is not a multipart feature class.
|Column Name||Short Name||Data Type||Data Precision||Comments|
|UTM_ZONE||UTM_ZONE||NUMBER||2||UTM ZONE is the Primary unique numeric identifier for a UTM ( Universal Transverse Mercator) ZONE. It represents the number of the Universal Transverse Mercator Zone of this area. North-south boundary lines are on increments of six degrees of longitude.|
|FEATURE_CODE||FEAT_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.|
|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_AREA_SQM||AREA_SQM||NUMBER||19||FEATURE_AREA_SQM is the system calculated area of a two-dimensional polygon in square meters|
|FEATURE_LENGTH_M||FEAT_LEN||NUMBER||19||FEATURE_LENGTH_M is the system calculated length or perimeter of a geometry in meters|
