History

Date Posted to GIS:
2007
  • 2006: In many cases spatial analysis is required only on features that appear in the developed portion of the District of North Vancouver. A polygon that could be used to select only features in the developed or non-developed region was required.
  • 2007: A boundary was digitized which effectively separates the alpine region to the north from the developed region to the south. This line was created primarily by distinguishing residential areas from open space, or wilderness, areas. The boundary was used to generate a northern (alpine region) polygon and a southern (developed region) polygon.

Quality

Accuracy
  • The dividing line between alpine and developed is subjective in some areas.
  • 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

Various departments submit marked-up maps or sketches to the GIS department. The Developed area information is updated accordingly.
