Get data on forest fires, compiled annually for the National Forestry Database [The National Forestry Database](http://nfdp.ccfm.org/en/index.php) includes national forest data and forest management statistics to seve as a credible, accurate and reliable source of information on forest management and its impact on the forest resource. Forest fire data is grouped into eight categories, which are further broken down by geographic location. These include: * number of fires by cause class and response category * area burned by cause class and response category * number of fires by month and response category * area burned by month and response category * number of fires by fire size class and response category * area burned by fire size class and response category * area burned by productivity class, stocking class, maturity class and response category * other fire statistics, such as property losses

A population ecumene is the area of inhabited lands or settled areas generally delimited by a minimum population density. Two population data sets from the 2016 Census of Population were used to build two specialized ecumene maps. The census division ecumene was built from dissemination area population density data and the census subdivision ecumene was built from the dissemination block population density data. For information on census divisions, census subdivisions, dissemination areas, and dissemination blocks consult the Statistics Canada’s 2016 Illustrated Glossary (see below under Data Resources). Areas included in the ecumene (for either the census division or census subdivision) are areas where the population density is greater than or equal to 0.4 persons per square kilometre or about 1 person per square mile. In some areas to capture more population within the ecumene the criteria was extended to 0.2 persons per square kilometre. The ecumene areas were generalized in certain regions either to enhance the size of some isolated ecumene areas or to remove small internal uninhabited areas within the ecumene. Either of these ecumene resources can be used as an “ecumene” map overlay to differentiate the sparsely populated areas from the ecumene in conjunction with the appropriate census geography or other small-scale and large-scale maps.
A cross reference table that allows for the relationship between a Forest Development Unit and a forest licence. An FDU may contain many licences, and a licence may be included in many FDUs
Survey records are the legal survey documents (plans, field notes, reports, diaries) that reflect the work done on the ground. The Canada Lands Survey Records provide a mechanism to ensure safekeeping of and access to legal survey documents for Canada Lands.
The spatial view REC OPP SPECTRUM INV SVW contains simple polygons that detail the level of remoteness of an area within the context of the recreation opportunity spectrum
The ROS Inventory characterizes and represents recreation opportunities as mixes or combinations of settings and probable experience opportunities arranged along a continuum or spectrum of ROS classes. The spectrum is set out in terms of seven ROS classes as follows: Primitive (P), Semi-primitive Non-motorized (SPNM), Semi-primitive Motorized (SPM), Roaded Natural (RN), Roaded Modified (RM), Rural (R), Urban (U)
This layer tracks amendments to the length of a section in a road tenure application (Road Permit, Forest Service Road, or Special Use Permit Road). NOTE: This layer does not represent the actual road on the ground. It represents where the application is geographically located
This file contains a representation of 3rd order watersheds developed for the 1:50,000 BC Watershed Atlas with each watershed polygon coded for occurrence of freshwater fish species (including anadromous salmon in their freshwater stages). The initial fish species codes for presence/absence in each watershed were derived from an GIS overlay of fish species occurrences within broadly defined fish regions for BC. This overlay of fish ranges describes the occurrences of fish species in 30 regions throughout the province. These broad species ranges were derived from McPhail and Carveth's 'Key to Freshwater Fish of BC' and refined further based on the most current expert opinion. Coding for watershed polygons based on this expert opinion was originally: 0= out of species range; 4 = core range; 5= introduced range; 6= peripheral range; 9= estuarine polygons only. A further refinement of watershed fish species coding was developed from actual observations of fish species in the lakes and rivers of British Columbia. This data comes from a number of fish inventory sources. Watersheds with known records of occurrence for each fish species were consequently recoded as such: 4, 5, 6, 9 now equal '1' if a museum record, and, 4, 5, 6, 9 now equal '2' for a less reliable record, and, 0 now equals '8'. for an out-of range record
