PRODUCTION AND REVISIONS:

There are two versions of this map:

1.

"Spion Kop Expanded" in the download folder.

A fieldchecked version that includes "The Lakes" subdivision. Made in June 2020 by David Bakker in OOMapper 0.9.2. Map file does not yet include any layouts, or north lines, since the map should be expanded (in September 2020) slightly in the NE corner along Pelmewash Parkway.

Made using 2018 High Density LiDAR (thinned 50%) provided by the Okanagan Water Board and thus falls under our signed data sharing agreement with the OBWB (shared using the executive access password). Contact David if you have questions on the unique terms of use for this map.


2.

"Spion Kop" in the download folder.

A non-fieldchecked computer generated version that includes some of the forested private property to the North and SW of the fieldchecked map, but contains much less of "The Lakes" subdivision.

This is a computer generated map - not fieldchecked! Trails are hand-traced from Strava Heatmap, Orthos, and Hillshades. Contours, Cliffs, and Vegetation solely computer generated. Buildings & Residential hand traced.

Made using Karttapullautin & Terje's scripts from 2018 High Density LiDAR (thinned 50%) provided by the Okanagan Water Board and thus falls under our signed data sharing agreement with the OBWB (shared using the executive access password). Contact David if you have questions on the unique terms of use for this map.
