An update to that inventory was conducted for the Metro Vancouver region only from 2015-2018, using 2014 imagery. Provincial SEI standards were followed to identify and map ecologically significant and relatively unmodified 'Sensitive Ecosystems', including wetlands, older forests and woodlands. In addition, 'Modified Ecosystems' such as old fields and young forests, which are human modified but still have ecological value and importance to biodiversity were included in the mapping process. The project area totaled 330,600 ha, consisting of terrestrial lands plus rivers, freshwater bodies, intertidal and estuarine zones.
