Industrial Plants

Industrial plants or installations are primarily administrative objects that can group one or more point and area sources together and provide administrative information such as contact addresses of owner/operator, ISIC classification, permits (as a start point for the permitting support tool), etc. and also provide direct access to any monitoring stations and data associated with the installation.

A plant OBJECT is described by

  1. HEADER: a standard OBJECT HEADER which inclue the OBJECT NAME, the "owner" (=user who generated the OBJECT) of that OBJECT, the last modification date; A short text block for arbitrary descriptive text.
  2. DESCRIPTION: a hypertext description including optional imagery; the hypertext can be edited on-line, images importet and integrated with the text in plain HTML format;
  3. LOCATION: a map (supplied by the MapServer) with the location of the object indicated; please note that the map include an EDIT button that leads the the MapComposer which can be used to configure the map background for the object.
    Alternatvely, the object class can be configured in the Location Setup defaults to use Google maps as background.

    The geographical representation camn be configured (again in the Location Setup defaults and configuration as either a reference POINT or a POLYGON to define location and extent.

  4. LINKS: a set of buttons integrated with the header that include:
