The AWC_PT layer (i.e. ScnAWC_PT, SeaAWC_PT, etc.) provides an abstract of the Anadromous Waters Catalog (AWC) point data which are used to specify the water bodies referred to in AS 16.05.871 for the protection of waters important for the spawning, rearing or migration of anadromous fishes. The points in this layer are not authoritative AWC content and, in some instances, have been moved from their original position so that they integrate with the AK Hydro stream and networked features – specifically, points within 10m of existing AK Hydro stream features have been snapped so they participate in the geometric network.
- The “OBJECTID” attribute is a system default that provides a unique ID for each record in the dataset.
- The “X_COORD” attribute indicates the X coordinate in Alaska Albers, meters.
- The “Y_COORD” attribute indicates the Y coordinate in Alaska Albers, meters.
- The “LAT” attribute indicates the latitude in decimal degrees.
- The “LONG_” attribute indicates the longitude in decimal degrees.
- The “TYPE” attribute provides the AWC convention used to describe the type of point.
- The “QUAD” attribute indicates the corresponding USGS 1:63,360 topo map quad name.
- The “StreamCode” attribute indicates the numerical codes assigned by ADF&G Anadromous Waters Catalog to streams occurring in the State’s AWC.
- The “NAME” attribute indicates the common name for streams where a name has been formally allocated and recorded.
- The “SPECSTR” attribute indicates species data associated with each point.
- The “MTRS” attribute indicates the Meridian, Township, Range and Section information associated with each point.
- The “PLOTSYM” attribute indicates the AWC symbology convention to be use with each point.
- The “AWC” attribute indicates how the record is categorized in relation the authoritative AWC content administered outside of AK Hydro – the range of values for this attribute is controlled by the “AWC_Status” domain. While all of these points originate from the authoritative AWC, this attribute is included so agencies can note features they want to draw AWC administrators’ attention to.
- The “Comments” attribute contains any notable remarks that the editor wants communicated with a particular record.
- The “Enabled” attribute indicates whether or not a record participates in the Hydro_GN geometric network. The “Enabled” attribute occurs by default in each feature class that participates in the geometric network.
- The “GlobalID” attribute provides a unique ID for each record in the dataset and is required for each versioned dataset that participates in a replication scheme.
- The “SHAPE” attribute is a system default that identifies the type of feature geometry for each record.
