History

Date Posted to GIS:
2000
  • 2000: Data was acquired directly from Coast Mountain Bus company. The routes were provided in shapefile format and uploaded into the District's GIS. The spatial accuracy of these bus stops was generalized and did not align with their true locations.
  • 2004: The GIS department spatially corrected each bus stop so that it aligns with the true location as per latest orthoimagery.

Quality

Accuracy
  • As per 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 Transportation department submits a marked-up map to the GIS department. Bus stop locations and/or stop amenity information is updated accordingly.
