Design Rule Purpose
This design rule counts the number of parcels entered by the route and provides users a metric which indicates how many individual land owners they might have to deal with. This information isn't used by Optioneer engine to optimise routes.
How to configure
This design rule only needs being enabled and fed appropriate data. For every route evaluated, the design rule will return a total number of land parcels bisected.
Dataset is rasterized to project resolution (default is 30m). This means that slender, complex shape parcels can sometimes go 'missing' as they are not picked up by the rasterizer. Similarly, on rare occasions the rasterization might cause a parcel to 'encroach' on another one.
Optioneer expects that the dataset uploaded contains vector parcel data, where parcels do not overlap with one another.
Feature ID returned on the vertical chart is based on internal numbering of parcels within a geodata layer. Numbers returned by Optioneer should correspond to feature IDs that were originally included in the dataset (but this is not guaranteed).
Input & Output Summary
There is no input parameters required for this design rule.
This design rule requires a dedicated dataset (see section above) to run correctly.
Total number of land parcels bisected
ID of parcel crossed at every point of the route
Plot on vertical chart
ID of feature within the GIS dataset
