History

Date Posted to GIS:
2004
  • 19981998: The North Shore Search and Rescue (NSSR) unit had recorded the location of various assets in the field, particularly in the alpine region. These assets were mapped and aided workers in the field during rescue missions.
  • : NSSR provided this information to the District's GIS in Microstation (CAD) format. The information was translated and selected data sets were loaded into the GIS to either start a new theme or to augment an existing one.
  • 2004: The Helicopter Landing Pads feature class was created from the NSSR collected data.

Quality

Accuracy
  • As per orthoimagery or marked-up 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
  • Significant spatial information is missing.

Maintenance

North Shore Search and Rescue submits a marked-up map to the GIS department. Helicopter Landing Pads are updated accordingly.
