History

Date Posted to GIS:
1997
  • 1997: The GIS department obtained railway information from the Provincial governments Terrain Resource Information Management (TRIM) project.
  • 2003: Railway features were corrected to match the 2003 orthoimagery.
  • 2009: In 2007 and 2009 additional modifications to railway features were digitized from the most recent orthoimagery.

Quality

Accuracy
  • As per orthoimagery
  • 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.
  • Mostly complete. Some rail lines may be missing.

Maintenance

The GIS department digitizes any updates into this dataset from the most recent orthoimagery.
