The BC Assessment Fabric is a geospatial representation of the assessment roll. It contains a record for almost every assessed property in British Columbia. Unlike a legal cadastre fabric, it is an ownership fabric. This means there may be many legal lots represented by one assessed property or folio. Properties that do not have a spatial representation defined by its corresponding local government are occasionally represented using a diamond shape as a placeholder. This is done to assist finding a property’s location, and is usually a precursor to having a property boundary defined. The BC Assessment Fabric represents 98.4% of the assessment roll as of April 2013.
