History

Date Posted to GIS:
2004
  • 2004: Data was acquired directly from Coast Mountain Bus company. The routes were provided in shapefile format and uploaded into the District's GIS.
  • 2008: The GIS department recreated this data set. By using the original Coast Mountain data, the bus routes were redigitized so that there were no overlapping lines. This allowed for the production of better maps.

Quality

Accuracy
  • Generalized. Routes are digitized in such a way as to support map making.
  • 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

GIS department contacts Coast Mountain Bus/ Translink and asks if there is a replacement for this data set. Once received the GIS department redigitizes the bus routes so that there were no overlapping lines.
