History

Date Posted to GIS:
1993
  • 1988: An electronic copy of parcels was acquired from Terasen (then called BC Gas) in the late 1980's. This data was obtained in Microstation DGN file format and was used to support the Computer Aided Design System during that era. The spatial accuracy of the parcel pins was approximately 10 to 50 cm on average as property pins were not entered using coordinate geometry. Many 'fragmented' lines occurred in this version of the parcels. No alpine parcels existed, only parcels in the developed portion of the District of North Vancouver.
  • 1993: The parcels were converted to ESRI coverage format in 1993. During this conversion fragmented lines were cleaned up to form a topologically correct coverage. In 1994, parcel polygons were assigned unique IDs and the linking process between the parcels in the GIS and the property records (stored in Tempest) began. An ongoing effort to find missing properties in both the property records system and in the GIS continued till 2001. In 1996, the parcels in the alpine region were added by metes and bounds descriptions due to lack of first order survey monuments in that region.
  • 2004: By 2004 the parcels coverage was converted to ESRI enterprise geodatbase format. Since 2001 all properties that are corrected or added to the parcels feature class are done so using coordinate geometry (COGO) techniques wherever possible. Over time this has improved the accuracy of the parcels feature class. District lots were differentiated from other cadastral elements during the digitizing process.

Completeness
  • Spatial information is known to be complete, expected to be complete or very close to complete.

Maintenance

The Land Titles Office submits legal plans to the GIS department. District lots are updated in the GIS as required.
