Freshwater Atlas Islands

Freshwater Atlas Islands All island polygons. Islands may overlap as there are islands within islands (e.g., a lake on an island contains an island). GNIS_NAME_1 contains the most atomic name for the island. For example, there are 3797 "Haida Gwaii" islands. If the island has not been named as part of a more specific group or with an individual name, "Haida Gwaii" is the GNIS_NAME_1 value. GNIS_NAME_2 and GNIS_NAME_3 values are null. If the island has a more specific name, "Haida Gwaii" moves to GNIS_NAME_2, and the more atomic name, such as "Moresby Island" is the GNIS_NAME_1. If the island has an individual name, belongs to a group, and is part of Haida Gwaii, the same logic of naming from most to least specific applies. For example, GNIS_NAME_1 = "George Island", GNIS_NAME_2 = "Copper Islands", GNIS_NAME_3 = "Haida Gwaii". 2024-02-21 Government of British Columbia GeoBCInfo@gov.bc.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyCWBcorporate watershed basefreshwater atlasGovernment information Fresh Water Atlas Information PageHTML https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content?id=2317BC6BB66448218779A89DC3E4914B BC Geographic Warehouse Custom DownloadHTML https://catalogue.data.gov.bc.ca/dataset/freshwater-atlas-islands/resource/7b79a888-1491-4d00-9ab2-6cafa5219041 Original metadata (https://catalogue.data.gov.bc.ca)HTML https://catalogue.data.gov.bc.ca/dataset/freshwater-atlas-islands Download KML Ground Overlay fileKML https://openmaps.gov.bc.ca/kml/geo/layers/WHSE_BASEMAPPING.FWA_ISLANDS_POLY_loader.kml Fresh Water Atlas Users GuidePDF https://www2.gov.bc.ca/assets/gov/data/geographic/topography/fwa/fwa_user_guide.pdf Freshwater Atlas IslandsWMS https://openmaps.gov.bc.ca/geo/pub/WHSE_BASEMAPPING.FWA_ISLANDS_POLY/ows?service=WMS&request=GetCapabilities&layers=pub:WHSE_BASEMAPPING.FWA_ISLANDS_POLY&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/plain Freshwater Atlas IslandsWMS https://openmaps.gov.bc.ca/geo/pub/WHSE_BASEMAPPING.FWA_ISLANDS_POLY/ows?service=WMS&request=GetCapabilities&layers=pub:WHSE_BASEMAPPING.FWA_ISLANDS_POLY&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/plain
