A versatile planning constraints tool
Cadcorp FindIT provides a simple way to query a large number of data layers (typically planning constraints but other data layers can be used), by user-defined area. The results are available for viewing on screen, to download as a PDF and are recorded along with the search item geometry in SQL Server, PostGIS or Oracle databases.
The FindIT tool works by allowing the user to define a search area and runs a query to find intersecting and contained features. The tool offers a number of options for defining the search area. The user can either draw an area freehand, select an existing feature or an OS MasterMap polygon (say a building outline).
Running the search will find all features that touch, overlap or are completely within the drawn polygon.
FindIT is designed to make Local Land Charges (Con29) and Planning Application searches less time-consuming. It allows the user to search a large number of datasets, even if stored in different directories, and displays the results in a comprehensible report with map. This significantly reduces the labour of finding out what constraints might affect a chosen site.
