History

Date Posted to GIS:
2004
  • 2004: All of the bear secure litter bins were digitized in order to assist the Bear Aware program. These points were digitized from the latest orthoimagery.
  • 2007: The existing inventory of litter bins was augmented in order to assist the Solid Waste department. Garbage containers that are fixed to poles or free standing litter bins were added to the inventory based on a marked-up map provided by the Solid Waste department.
  • 2012: The complete inventory was refreshed via GPS survey by the Solid Waste and Parks Departments.

Quality

Accuracy
  • Locations are somewhat generalized.
  • Spatial information is collected and entered using the next best method applicable to this dataset.
  • Spatial information is very accurate but could be improved using a better collection technique.
  • Where multiple collection/entry methods, the more accurate method is predominant throughout this dataset.
Completeness
  • Some spatial information may be missing.

Maintenance

The Solid Waste and Parks Departments inform the GIS Department of updates. If possible a marked up map is provided, otherwise GPS is used to capture the bin locations.
