History

Date Posted to GIS:
2007
  • 2007: This feature class was created by digitizing the forward sortation area polygons from a small scale and very generalized map supplied by Canada Post.

Quality

Accuracy
  • Digitized from a softcopy map. Boundaries are generalized and derived from textual and spatial descriptions from Canada Post maps.
  • Spatial information is collected and entered using a compromised method applicable to this dataset.
  • Spatial information is moderately accurate and considerable improvements could be made.
  • Where multiple collection/entry methods, the more accurate method is not predominant throughout this dataset.
Completeness
  • Spatial information is known to be complete, expected to be complete or very close to complete.

Maintenance

GIS department contacts Canada Post and asks if there is a replacement for this data set.
