This project maps sensitive ecosystems in the Narmata area. Spatial and polygon attribute data are now available; the report is pending.

This project is a re-map and upgrade of an earlier project completed in 2004. Upgrades include the removal of non-SEI components of polygons where possible, the application of deciles to all polygon components and better capture of riparian and wetland ecosystems.

The study area is on the east side of Okanagan Lake at higher elevations. The project covers portions of mapsheets 082E074, 073, 064, 063, 054, 053, 044 and 043. Biogeoclimatic units included are the ESSFdcp, ESSFdc1, MSdm1, IDFdm1, and IDFxh1.

The project was funded and completed by the B.C. Ministry of Environment through the ecology staff at the Conservation Data Centre.

The project does not follow the Standard for Mapping Ecosystems at Risk in B.C., 2006, although it does have the same database structure.

The mapping was completed in May 2006 at 1:20,000 scale.
