Process step
Description The development of the Hunting area boundaries use existing manufactured and natural boundaries to distinguish individual regions. Lines were snapped to municipal roads and highways obtainable from Manitoba Land Initiative website. Snapping included, using the Trans-Canada Highway, provincial highways, and provincial roads. Further man made boundaries include, snapping to township and quarter section grids where applicable. In addition, borders along natural barriers included Manitoba rivers and lakes. Hunting areas using lakes as the limit, were based on maps using 1:1 million. Borders that were snapped to rivers, use the Manitoba river map of 1:500k.
