History

Date Posted to GIS:
2003
  • 2003: Information from a variety of sources collected at various dates was amalgamated into one feature class in 2003. A significant portion of this information originated from North Shore Search and Rescue data collection efforts of the late 90's. As more significant geographic features are identified they are added to this point feature class.
  • 2012: Spot Heights were removed to be added to a new Spot Height feature class. Mountain and Forest features were also removed.

Quality

Accuracy
  • Point locations are generalized
  • Spatial information is collected and entered using the next best method applicable to this dataset.
  • Spatial information is very accurate but could be improved using a better collection technique.
  • Where multiple collection/entry methods, the more accurate method is predominant throughout this dataset.
Completeness
  • Some spatial information may be missing.
  • Information contained within is subjective.

Maintenance

Various departments may submit either a marked up map or an electronic file to the GIS department. Natural features are updated accordingly.
