History

Date Posted to GIS:
2001
  • 2001: The District of North Vancouver acquired the digital road atlas product from GIS Innovations pertaining to the North Shore and including Bowen Island and Lions Bay. This North Shore product was originally to be used to support the FDM Fire Dispatch system and the need to load this spatial data into the FDM software.
  • 2002: The DNV GIS department created a new Streets Centerline dataset based off the GIS Innovations dataset. The spatial data was adjusted to conform better to the true centerline of the road. Additionally, new geocoding information was applied to the dataset which better represents some anomalous addressing areas. Jurisdictional information was also updated to better reflect municipal allocations of addresses.
  • 2003: Road types were determined in order to conform with the District of North Vancouver's road classification system.

Quality

Accuracy
  • Centrelines reflect the best location for the middle of streets within the District of North Vancouver.
  • Spatial information is collected and entered using the best method applicable to this dataset.
  • Spatial information is higly accurate and reasonably the best it can be.
  • 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.
  • Expected to be complete for the District of North Vancouver. Unknown for all other jurisdictions.

Maintenance

The Transportation department submits a plan to the GIS department and the street is added/modified as needed. Additionally, each year, new streets data is supplied by the City of North Van and District of West Van. This new data is visually compared against the existing data. The Street Centrelines data is updated accordingly.
