Allotment database

Introduction

Another database we integrated to make life easier for ranchers contains allotments from Bureau of Land Management
Using that database you can add any allotment to your ranch.

Searching for allotments on the map

In order to search for allotments on the map you have to switch to map view first. Use the earth icon for that. When you click any point on the map it sends the query to our backend system with the coordinates of the clicked point. We try to find any allotment, which contains this location. If we find it we will display it - see Figure 1 . We also display a box with allotment description. There is a link inside it which allows you to add this allotment to your current ranch. We may also find a qqsection at the same point. In that case both an allotment and a qqsection are displayed in separate boxes.

Sometimes we cannot find anything in our database. In that case you will see a message like on Figure 2 .

Searching for allotments using a dialog

If you are still on the map view then go back to project view by clicking the menu icon in the top left corner.
You can find Allotment dialog in the dropdown Inputs menu on the left - see Figure 3 .

When you open this dialog you should see something similar to Figure 4 You can search allotments by their number or name. It's also possible to limit the search to a single state. You can mark any found allotments for addition or removal just by checking or unchecking them. You should be aware though that nothing is changed until you click Save button. You can also discard any changes using Cancel button.

To make it easier for you to manage larger sets of changes we introduced the second tab - pending changes. You can see it on Figure 5 . It contains a list of added and removed allotments. You can remove changes from this list using x button.
