A13.5 Training for Local Plan Workflow

A13.5.1 Training for Parcel Digitisation

Topic:
Step 1: Digitize all parcels of the Local Plan with their 'planning zone'
(Planning units should be in 'style', e.g. 2 for residential/high density)
Save in the SL folder
Run quality-control check with Processing Tool 'Quality-control of GIS file'
Time required: Depends on experience of staff and size of plan: 0.5 - 3 weeks

Training for advanced staff: 1-2 days, for beginners illiterate in GIS: 3 weeks

If trainees are not familiar with Map Maker, they must first receive a GIS introduction course and must know the basics of GIS, such as:
- Feature types (polygon, line, point)
- Coordinates (system, x and y coordinates, easting and northing)
- File handling (saving, retrieving, copying files)

If a trainee is computer-literate and well motivated and knows how to read maps, this can be achieved in 3 weeks.
The first 3 chapters of this LUPMIS Manual will be helpful, particularly Chapter 2 for GIS data entry.

For staff who know Map Maker, this will be a refresher course to discuss:
- Feature types
- Avoid micro and sliver polygons
- Snap vertices
- Assignment of planning zones
- Quality-control and LUPMIS Tools to run quality-control
- Error maps in LUPMIS
- Solve indicated problems

Data which have been entered in QGIS should be converted through LUPMIS Tools to Map Maker's DRA format, as all Local Plan workflow processing is done in LUPMIS and Map Maker environment.
A13.5.2 Training for UPN Assignment

Topic:
Step 2: Assign UPN to all parcels automatically with Tool 'UPN Assignment' (UPN will be in 'id')
Run quality-control check with Processing Tool 'Quality-control of GIS file'
Time required: 0.5 - 1 hour

Training for advanced staff: 0.5 - 1 day

UPN is the essential identifier for all parcels. It is automatically assigned through LUPMIS Tool 'UPN assignment'.

It can only be done, if the polygon file of the Local Plan is digitized and is clean.

After carrying out the UPN assignment, a quality check must be made.
A13.5.3 Training for Streetline Digitisation

Topic:
Step 3: Digitize all streets (as centre lines, in the correct direction, with few points)
with street names in 'display label'
and road hierarchy in 'style', if 'hierarchy-based' method is choosen (recommended)
Save as (Local Plan)_streetlines.dra in the SL folder
Run quality-control check with Processing Tool 'Quality-control of GIS file'
Time required: 1-3 days

Training for advanced staff: 1 day

Street lines are basic line features, but need some specific considerations:
- They must contain the street name in 'display label'
- They should follow the center of the street
- They must follow the direction, to where the property numbers increase
- Only one street line per street name is allowed
- No need for junction handling

The hierarchy-based method is recommended. Trainees should be familiar with both methods.

The quality check for streetlines shows eventual errors. Students should know to run this check and to solve indicated problems.
A13.5.4 Training for Address Assignment (Street Names and Property Numbers)

Topic:
Step 4: Assign street names and property numbers to all parcels automatically with Processing Tool 'Street name / property number'
(Property number + street name will be in 'display label')
Run quality-control check with Processing Tool 'Quality-control of GIS file'.
Time required: 0.5 - 2 hours

Training for advanced staff: 1 day

Trainees should be familiar with the various modification parameters (such as distance from parcel to street etc).

A quality-control is mandatory.

Step 4a (additional option): If there are long streets crossing from other Local Plans, modify property numbers
Step 4b (additional option): If a street is to be re-named, modify street name with Processing Tools 'Change street name'

Trainees should be familiar with the additional LUPMIS options.
A13.5.5 Training for Address Database

Topic:
Step 5: Transfer addresses to Address Database automatically with Tool 'Update Address Database from GIS'
Time required: 0.5 - 1 hour

Training for advanced staff: 1 day

Soon to be discussed here in detail.
A13.5.6 Training for Streettext File

Topic:
Step 6: Transfer street names to a separate text file automatically with Processing Tool 'Convert streetlines to text'
Save as (Local Plan)_streettext.dra in the SL folder
Time required: 0.5 hour

Training for advanced staff: 2 hours

Soon to be discussed here in detail.
A13.5.7 Training for Street Background File

Topic:
Step 7 (optional): If you like gray background of the streets, overlay your Local Plan with the entire area, with Processing Tool 'Overlay',
Save as (Local Plan)_streetpoly.dra in the SL folder

Soon to be discussed here in detail.
A13.5.8 Training for Street Sign Posts File

Topic:
Step 8 (optional): If required, digitize the location of street sign posts,
Save as (Local Plan)_streetpoints.dra in the SL folder

Soon to be discussed here in detail.
A13.5.9 Training for Permit Database

Topic:
Step 9: Collect permit data (applications, approvals etc) for the Permit Database
Enter or import from Excel file (with Permit Tool 'Import permit data'), including GIS data (with Permit Tool 'Import GIS data')
Time required (after collection of data): 1-5 days

Training for advanced staff: 2-3 days for data import, 2-3 days to familiarize with the Permit Database

Soon to be discussed here in detail.
A13.5.10 Training for Data of Land Valuation Board

Topic:
Step 10 (if you want to use the data for revenue collection):
Collect maps and data from the Land Valuation Board
Digitize the link to LUPMIS with the Revenue Tools for Land Valuation
Time required: 1-3 weeks

Training for advanced staff: 2-3 days

Soon to be discussed here in detail.
A13.5.11 Training for Revenue Database

Topic:
Step 11 (if you want to use the data for revenue collection):
Collect property and business data, fee-fixing rules, property/business classes etc
Enter or import from Excel file (with Revenue Tool 'Import revenue data'), including GIS data (with Revenue Tool 'Import GIS data')
Generate bills, invoices, monitoring maps etc
See 'General procedure' under Revenue Tools.
Time required (after collection of data): 1-5 days

Training for advanced staff: 2-3 days for data import, 2-3 days to familiarize with the Revenue Database

Soon to be discussed here in detail.
