Users can create and use projects in AO to organize data for a specific site. Think of a 'project' as a site area -- it could be a greenfield site around all substations in a given county OR it could represent a single parcel that you just want to analyze quickly (or anything in-between).
Once you create a project, changes to the project are automatically saved (there's no 'save' buttons) and the project will be ready to go the next time you login.
Set up initial project around site area (pick initial assets: sub(s), line(s), or specific parcels to build site around).
Find parcels nearby
Run the Buildable Area Analysis to automatically create constraint maps and calculate buildable area for each parcel
Sort/filter parcel data to get to shortlist of high-quality parcels
Export parcel and map data (excel/CSV, KML, Shapefile, and PDF)
A project has two major sections:
Project Map: Displays assets saved to the project (assets are things like substations, lines, and parcels).
Asset Lists/Tabs: Assets saved to the map will also display in a list view in the relevant asset tab. E.g. Parcels that have been saved to the project appear under the Parcels tab.
Data is separated by state so make sure that the desired state is selected in the header (if not, click the dropdown menu to select a different state).
From the dashboard, hit 'Create' under the Projects section
