A land unit represents an administrative limit (regional, provincial or federal). It refers to a geographic area for which an administrative authority is empowered to take administrative, political or strategic decisions. They are often associated with electoral districts, but are not reduced to these terms.
In the Borealis system, land units are components of the Land Management module. They can contribute to bring additional information to a stakeholder's record, under the General Information tab, in the Additional Information section. All interactions and engagement plans also contain references to land units.
Here are the steps to follow to create a new land unit:
- Click on the Create button available in the land unit register;
- Enter the name of the new administrative unit:
- Select a geometry; this will provide additional information, such as area.
- Save the data to create the new unit.
Once created, the unit will be available in the drop-down lists of various components of the Stakeholder engagement module. As everywhere in the system, it will then be possible to view all the information where the unit is used directly from the unit record .
In addition, because of the geometry, it is possible to display all the overlays of this unit, whether it is with other land units, parcels or company assets. This can be done in a table view or on the map.
By using the deactivation action, the status of a land unit becomes inactive.
