History

Date Posted to GIS:
1997
  • 1997: The GIS department obtained oceans information from the Provincial governments Terrain Resource Information Management (TRIM) project.
  • 2003: The edge of the ocean polygon, which represents the shoreline, was updated to match the water line as depicted in the 2003 orthoimagery.
  • 2007: The edge of the ocean polygon, which represents the shoreline, was updated to match the water line as depicted in the 2007 orthoimagery.

Quality

Accuracy
  • As per TRIM specifications and augmented by digitizing from 2007 orthoimagery.
  • 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
  • Spatial information is known to be complete, expected to be complete or very close to complete.

Maintenance

The GIS department digitizes any updates into this dataset from the most recent orthoimagery. The shorelines for adjacent municipalities such as Burnaby, Vancouver, North Vancouver, etc must have their shorelines re-digitized.
