The British Columbia Marine Conservation Analysis (BCMCA) is a collaborative project assembling and analyzing spatial information about Canada's Pacific Ocean. The overall goal of the BCMCA is to identify marine areas of high conservation value and marine areas important to human use. Results of the project are intended to inform and help advance marine planning initiatives in BC by providing collaborative, peer-reviewed scientific analyses based on the best ecological and human use spatial data at scales relevant to a BC coast-wide analysis.

The overall goal of the BCMCA is to identify marine areas of high conservation value and marine areas important to human use. Results of the project are intended to inform and help advance marine planning initiatives in BC by providing collaborative, peer-reviewed scientific analyses based on the best ecological and socio-economic spatial data at scales relevant to a BC coast-wide analysis.

The Humpback Shrimp catch grid dataset has been assembled directly from the Shellfish Data Units harvest log database located at the Pacific Biological Station (PBS). The dataset has been modified to meet the sensitive nature of the data as per the Access to Information Act20(1)(b,c); which specifies that Fisheries and Oceans Canada will not disclose to a third party confidential information that may prejudice the competitive position of the fisher, in which fishing location has been identified as one of the entities to be protected. There was a 10km x 10km grid used in the desensitization process as well information was limited to total Effort (kilometre) and total Catch (lbs). The dataset is comprised of Humpback...

ClimateWNA was used to downscale historical data and future climate projections to a 1-km 2 grid. ClimateWNA is a program that generates both directly calculated and derived climate variables for specific locations across western North America (Wang et al. 2012) using Parameter-elevation Regressions on Independent Slopes Model (PRISM). We generated annual, seasonal and monthly climate data for the period 1961 to 1990. For future climate projections, we used the SRES A2 greenhouse-gas emissions scenario from the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report. We generated five sets of future climate projections averaged for the time period 2070-2099: BCCR BCM2.0, CCCMA CGCM3, CSIRO MK 3.0, INMCM 3.0, MIROC3.2 MEDRES. Downloads:...

A pool, or group of pools, within a specified geographic area that contain oil or natural gas. Fields are not specific to producing geological formation(s). Fields are used for well naming purposes relative to the well site surface coordinates and the objective formation of the well.

The National Hydro Network (NHN), for which the standard was officially adopted by the Canadian Council on Geomatics (CCOG) in August 2004, focuses on providing a quality geometric description and a set of basic attributes describing Canada's inland surface waters. It provides geospatial vector data describing hydrographic features such as lakes, reservoirs, rivers, streams, canals, islands, obstacles (e.g. waterfalls, rapids, rocks in water) and constructions (e.g. dams, wharves, dikes), as well as a linear drainage network and the toponymic information (geographical names) associated to hydrography.The NHN forms the hydrographic layer of the GeoBase. The best available federal and provincial/territorial data are...

This data set represents the spatial distribution of the commercial halibut fishery within the International Pacific Halibut Commission's statistical areas for British Columbia and was provided by the IPHC. The statistical areas were digitized by the IPHC and most vertices coincide with the historical IPHC areas. For accurate digitization, additional vertices were inserted by referring to NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) and CHS (Canadian Hydrographic Survey) Mercator projected charts. The BCMCA used the statistical areas to join the aggregated catch information from 1991-2006, also provided by the International Pacific Halibut Commission. Catch data is assigned to statistical areas using (in...

The Towboat reserves were put in place at the request of the Council of Marine Carriers (CMC) to protect harbours along the BC Coast to ensure harbours of refuge (temporary shelter during inclement weather or when waiting for favorable tides) remained available for commercial marine traffic - eg. tugs towing booms and barges up and down the coast. These harbours needed to be of adequate size, be located along commercial navigation routes and provide adequate shelter to accommodate the tug and the load being towed. Certain harbours were identified as critical harbours because they meet the size, location and shelter criteria required. To ensure the harbour remains available as a harbour refuge, shoreline development...

Assessment Watersheds are mesoscale aquatic units designed to replace the 3rd order 1:50K watersheds. Assessment Watersheds are based on groupings of fundamental watersheds using FWA watershed code and local code, with a target size of between 2,000ha and 10,000ha. Data prepared as a part of the BC Freshwater Atlas.

Level 1A Raw Image Data from SPOT 5 and SPOT 4 satellite. These images were used to create the orthoimages for the product GeoBase Orthoimage 2005-2010. Images of Raw Imagery GeoBase 2005-2010 product are raster digital date coming from SPOT 4 and SPOT 5 satellites that contain a panchromatic band with 10 meter pixels and four multispectral bands with 20 meter pixels. These images were used to produce the orthoimages of the GeoBase Orthoimage 2005-2010 product. These images are not georeferenced. The main objective of the project is to produce a complete set of raw images covering Canada's landmass over a five-year period, from May 2005 to October 2010. The goal is also to promote the use of geomatics and education...

The Exotic (EXO) and Native (NAT) biodiversity features represent exotic and native plant species communities in the Georgia Basin. These features (or rasters) were created following similar methods as Schuster & Arcese (2013), wherein they modelled and mapped bird species distributions using presence-absence data from ebird (http://ebird.org/content/ebird/about/; Sullivan et al. 2009). Plant species occurrence data were drawn from several sources (Boag 2014; Dr. E Gonzales; Dr. Joe Bennett; E-Flora BC 2013). Data for the 20 most abundant native and exotic plant species (40 species total) identified by Bennett (2014) were used to map the NAT and EXO communities, respectively (species list can be found in Appendix...
