Combining and splitting diagrams - Plan Generation

This article contains information on Plan Generation – splitting and combining diagrams.

On this page

Plan Generation functionality allows you to:

  • define identical non-primary diagrams to display secondary and tertiary parcels. This includes the ability to hide boundary lines and labels of non-required parcels to give emphasis to selected non-primary diagrams on both the primary diagram and non-primary diagram sheets.
  • combine primary and non-primary parcels in a single diagram and show non-primary parcels in the survey sheet.
  • show non-primary parcels in the survey sheet.

Using the functionality

Diagram 1 below shows how both a tertiary diagram and secondary diagram can be shown separately.

Two non-primary diagrams were created in Define Diagrams over the same area. Showing diagrams this way can help future users differentiating the different tertiary and secondary parcels.

Diag. B on the left shows only the parcels on the tertiary layer – hiding secondary parcels Areas A and D.

Diag. C on the right, shows only the secondary parcels Areas A and D – hiding the tertiary parcel Area B.

Showing non-primary parcels in the survey sheet

In the Maintain Diagram Layers screen, add the following layers to the System Generated Survey Diagram or any User Defined Survey Diagram.

  1. Non Primary Boundary Marks.
  2. Non Primary Parcels.
  3. Primary Parcels.
  4. Any other desired layers.

Combining primary and non-primary parcels into one primary diagram

In the Maintain Diagram Layers screen, add the following layers to the System Generated Primary Diagram or any User Defined Primary Diagram.

  1. Non Primary Boundary Marks.
  2. Non Primary Parcels.
  3. Primary Parcels.
  4. Any other desired layers.

Non Primary Parcels and Marks Layers

The Non Primary Boundary Marks layer must be selected before you select any of the following optional layers:
  • Non Primary Boundary Dimensions
  • Non Primary Parcels
  • Centreline Parcels.

You will not be able to add the other non-primary layers or the centreline parcels layer if you have not selected the marks layer.

Likewise, if you need to remove the Non Primary Boundary Marks Layer from the Selected Layers list, you need to first remove the other non-primary layers.

Diagram 5 below shows the result of adding the non-primary parcel layers to primary diagrams. The system generated primary diagram and user defined primary diagram have both been laid out on the title sheet in Plan Generation.
