Mineral_occurrence - This feature depicts a body of rock containing, or thought to contain, ore minerals or potential ore minerals. A geographic location depicts the most significant physical reference point to the mineralization. MINFILE contains geological, location and economic information on over 12,600 metallic, industrial mineral and coal occurrences in B.C. The database is used by government, industry and academia for resource management, land-use planning, exploration and research.

Polygons delimiting the watershed group boundary, which is a collections of drainage areas. In-land groups will contain a single polygon, coastal groups may contain multiple polygons (one for each island). Data prepared as a part of the BC Freshwater Atlas.

Quaternary Alluvium and Cover is a data set that is represented as a cover layer on the maps of MapPlace. It is part of the Digital Geology Map of British Columbia Project that was designed to produce a seamless digital map of the Province with consistent geological tagging. Note: the extensive Quaternary deposits of the Rocky Mountain foothills and the Peace River area have been omitted as they would completely cover and obscure the bedrock geology.

Historical Floodplain Boundaries in BC. (Basic boundaries; does not include a descriptive name for each of the three types of floodplain areas.) Digitized from hardcopy 1:5,000 Floodplain Mapsheets for each project area
thumbnail
Historical Floodplain Boundaries in BC with a descriptive Feature Name for each floodplain area (i.e., 200-year floodplain, alluvial fan, or nothing/out-of-floodplain). Digitized from hardcopy 1:5,000 Floodplain Mapsheets for each project area

The Canadian Aboriginal Lands product consists of polygon entities that depict the administrative boundaries (extent) of lands where the title has been vested in specific Aboriginal Groups of Canada or lands which were set aside for their exclusive benefit. More specifically it includes the following lands:Indian ReservesLands that include:Surrendered lands or a reserve, as defined in the Indian Act. This definition excludes Indian Settlements and Indian Communities.Sechelt lands, as defined in the Sechelt Indian Band Self-Government Act, chapter 27 of the Statutes of Canada, 1986.Land Claim Settlement LandsLands created under Comprehensive Land Claims Process that do not or will not have Indian Reserve status under...

This is a provincial coverage of stream macro-reaches. A macro-reach is a homogeneous stream segment delineated through interpretation of reach attributes from the 1:50,000 National Topographic Series (NTS) of mapsheets. Reach attributes include gradient (as derived from contour interpolation), channel pattern, size of stream, order of stream, major falls, position of the stream in the landscape, and inferred bank materials. These macro-reaches are geo-referenced to the stream centreline network of the BC Watershed Atlas 50K. Each stream is subdivided into one or more macro-reaches that run in a continuous sequence from a stream's mouth to its headwaters. This theme has been used to quantify some aspects of hydrology...

Wildlife radio-telemetry may be defined as the transmission of information from a transmitter on a free-ranging wild animal to a receiver. Wildlife-related telemetry is also known as radio tagging, radio-tracking or simply ?tagging? or ?tracking?. Advances in the field of wildlife telemetry have made it possible to acquire detailed data on many aspects of wildlife biology, including habitat use, home range size, mortality and survivorship, and migration timing and routes.Since many wildlife species are secretive and difficult to observe, radiotelemetry has provided a valuable tool to learn more about their respective life histories

Distribution of unspecified pelagic bird species habitat in coastal British Columbia showing relative abundance (RA) by season and overall relative importance (RI). RI is based on project region and not on the province as a whole. British Columbia has been collecting coastal resource data in a systematic and synoptic manner since 1979. Resource information is collected using peer-reviewed provincial Resource Information Standards Committee which include standards for data management and analysis.

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 Pink Shrimp catch and effort 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...

These data were digitized from the Pacific Pilotage Regulations dated February 26, 2011 and show areas within the Canadian Pacific EEZ where ships transiting to and from Canadian ports are required to carry a certified pilot. Data extend inland to cover all relevant inlets and have not been clipped to a particular coastline.

RI is based on project region and not on the province as a whole. British Columbia has been collecting coastal resource data in a systematic and synoptic manner since 1979. Resource information is collected using peer-reviewed provincial Resource Information Standards Committee which include standards for data management and 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.

At the request of the North American Salmon Stronghold Partnership, the Wild Salmon Center has been working with scientists across the Northwest to identify a network of watersheds important to the long term survival of salmon and steelhead. The network has been selected based on biological criteria; from this network, the Stronghold Partnership will identify sites where opportunities exist to forge creative and cross-jurisdictional approaches to salmon conservation. In order for the North American Salmon Stronghold Partnership to choose salmon strongholds, the Wild Salmon Center held workshops to rate species specific populations across the Pacific Northwest. We organized two expert workshops in Portland, Oregon...
