Groupings of BC Freshwater Atlas (FWA) Assessment Watersheds dissolved to a manageable scale for water licensing. Each Natural Resource Region developed their own process for grouping and naming the watersheds based on the region's water management needs.

Dataset Extent

Latitude: 48.0° to 60.0°
Longitude: -139.5° to -113.5°

Additional Information

Purpose

This dataset is intended for the public display of watersheds that may be identified in a groundwater licence document.

Lineage Statement

This data is static and is only updated if a watershed boundary has been updated. Watershed boundaries are based on the Freshwater Atlas (FWA) Assessment Watersheds and dissolved/grouped based on regional requirements for water management and water licensing.

Object Description

Object Name: WHSE_WATER_MANAGEMENT.WLS_WATER_LIC_WATERSHEDS_SP

Short Name: WLSWATERLI
Comments: Groupings of BC Freshwater Atlas (FWA) Assessment Watersheds dissolved to a manageable scale for water licensing. Each Natural Resource Region developed their own process for grouping and naming the watersheds based on the water management needs of each Region.

Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
WLS_WLWS_SYSID SYSID NUMBER 10 A system generated unique identification number.
WATER_LICENSING_WATERSHED_ID WL_WS_ID VARCHAR2 10 A unique identifier assigned to the water licensing watershed based on the BC Freshwater Atlas (FWA) 3-digit main river stem code (e.g., 100 for Fraser River) followed by a sequential number, e.g., 100-001.
WATER_LICENSING_WATERSHED_NAME WL_WS_NAME VARCHAR2 100 The name assigned to the water licensing watershed, beginning with the 4-letter FWA watershed group code e.g., UKEC - Upper Kechika River.
FWA_WATERSHED_GROUP_CODE FWA_WSG_CD VARCHAR2 4 The code for the FWA watershed group which the water licensing watershed is within, e.g., UKEC.
FWA_WATERSHED_GROUP_ID FWA_WSG_ID NUMBER 6 The unique ID for the FWA watershed group which the water licensing watershed is within, e.g., 227.
FWA_COMMON_WATERSHED_CODE FWACMMN_CD VARCHAR2 30 The portion of FWA watershed code that is common among all the FWA Assessment Watersheds that were grouped to make up the water licensing watershed, e.g., 400-431358-732614-000000. Null indicates there is no common FWA watershed code among the FWA Assessment Watersheds.
FEATURE_AREA_SQM FEAT_AREA 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.
SHAPE SHAPE SDO_GEOMETRY 1 SHAPE is the column used to reference the spatial coordinates defining the feature.
OBJECTID OBJECTID NUMBER 38 OBJECTID is a column required by spatial layers that interact with ESRI ArcSDE. It is populated with unique values automatically by SDE.
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.
