A Authoring the reference parcel PERIMETER

  • q1.The initial/primary graphical data (polygon boundaries) for the perimeter that identifies a “unit of land representing agricultural area” and allows “unique and unambiguous localisation” are delivered by:
    • a/ external registers or maps -> q2
    • b/ internal IACS procedures -> q3
  • q2. The data supplier of the graphical and alphanumerical data for perimeter and RP ID is
    • a/ cadastral institution (or other entrusted body), land registry, land court, or any other property register -> q4
    • b/ mapping agency, cartographic institute or mapmaker “TB” - topographical block
  • q3. The delineation of these units is made by
    • a/ the LPIS-custodian, the PA or their contractor “PB” - physical block
    • b/ the farmer or applicant: -> q5
  • q4. What does the polygon, used as reference parcel, represent?
    • a/ the unit of land that was historically entered in the register: “CP” - cadastral parcel
    • b/ the current extend of land tenure, i.e. adjacent CPs merged by right holder: “BPU” - basic property unit
  • q5. What the farmer or applicant delineates is:
    • a/ each individual crop group: “AP” – agricultural parcel
    • b/ all clusters of adjacent agricultural parcels in his holding: “FB” – farmer’s block

B Mapping the BORDERS of agricultural land

  • q6. The optional/secondary/implied graphical data (polygon boundaries) that represent the physical borders used to “measure the agricultural land” that “as a principle, is stable in time” are derived from.
    • a/ a systematic land cover mapping project, covering all the agricultural land of the territory -> q7
    • b/ a delineation process during IACS applications with or without preregistration -> q8
  • q7. The land cover mapping project is set-up by
    • a/ the LPIS-custodian or the PA in isolation: “dedicated
    • b/ in collaboration with a third party institution (e.g. mapping agency, environmental agency,..): “shared
  • q8. The delineation process by the applicant is
    • a/ based on delineation from standalone aerial/VHR imagery (even if overlaps with other applications are enforced): “freehand
    • b/ based on aerial/VHR imagery in combination with and constrained by other GIS data: “constrained

C Integrating eligible area from GAEC LANDSCAPE FEATURES

  • q9. If applicable, how was the eligible area from “landscape features subject to the requirements and standards listed in Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 1306/2013 which form part of the total area”, established?
    • a/ as a part of A. and B. above, i.e. embedded inside the perimeter of a reference parcel of agricultural land: “inclusive
    • b/ as a separate spatial feature with individual identification and polygon, i.e. adjacent to the perimeter of a reference parcel of agricultural land: “complementary

D ASSEMBLING the reference parcel for IACS crosschecks

  • q10. To “determine” “for each reference parcel” “a maximum eligible area for the purpose of the support schemes listed in Annex I to Regulation”, the following spatial operations were performed
    • a/ none (assumed possible only in production block systems): “ Raw
    • b/ a straightforward (unmodified, unfiltered) spatial intersection between only perimeter and border polygons: ” straightforward
    • c/ a sub selection only of perimeter data (merger of units) followed by a spatial intersection with border polygons -> q11
    • d/ manipulation (queries and or spatial operations) of perimeter data followed by a spatial intersection with border polygons: “ adjusted
    • e/ a more complex sequence of spatial operations, involving other spatial themes and combinations than a singular intersection of perimeter and border. -> q13
  • q11. This sub-selection of perimeter data represents:
    • a/ ignoring only particular topographical elements or landscape feature types present in source but irrelevant for IACS: “ extracted
    • b/ ignoring only perimeter segments that have the same applicant on both sides -> q12
    • c/ made by any other condition: “amalgamated
  • q12. Retrieve your RP-type from A above and
  • q13. What is impact of the additional spatial themes used?
    • a/ it allows to combine another reference parcel authors than the one identified as primary, and allows to obtain operate with smaller units of land: “ hybrid
    • b/ It allows subdividing the initial reference parcel perimeter into smaller units based on physical subdivision: “ sub-parcelled
    • c/ Neither a/ or b/ (e.g. is achieves some particular properties, it accommodates a legacy situation): “complicated

E Establishing the PRO RATA reference area values for permanent grassland

  • q14. Regarding “permanent grassland with scattered ineligible features”, and their “pro-rata system to determine the eligible area within the reference parcel”:
    • a/ pro rata is not implemented and so not a single case occurs; for all PG the area is directly derived from a polygon geometry of the delineated grassland: “geometric
    • b/ pro rata is implemented and at least one reference parcel with PG was subject to area reduction -> q15
  • q15. The pro-rata reduction of eligible area of reference is calculated
    • a/ based on the delineation of a specific PG land cover class: for all applicable PG occurrences, the delineated polygon area is reduced by a pre-assessed pro-rata reduction factor: “systematic
    • b/ in at least one case that area reduction is based on a reference parcel specific assessment of the area of the ineligible features to be deduced: “sporadic

F VALIDATING the source data

  • q16. All spatial data identified above (source imagery, perimeter polygons, border polygons and possibly third themes) are demonstrated, by a documented report of external tests, to “operate on the basis of a national coordinate reference system” on a level that is “at least equivalent to that of cartography at a scale of 1:5 000”.
    • a/ If there are testing reports: “validated
    • b/ If there are no testing reports: “non-validated

G Immediate AVAILABILITY for payment

  • q17. With the agricultural area and eligible hectares inside the reference parcel perimeter measured, how does the SUT “specify the maximum eligible area per reference parcel” of the current year in the “pre-established forms based on the areas determined in the previous year”?
    • a/ That area value is identical to the value determined by the inventory or the physical observations of the agriculture land: “landCover
    • b/ The area value determined by the physical inventory has been further modified on the basis of internal or external restrictions: “landUse

H GSAA uptake

  • q18. To what extent are farmers known to “submit the aid application and/or payment claim using the geo-spatial aid application form” i.e. “through a GIS-based interface”?
    • a/ less than 25%: “< 25%
    • b/ at least 25%: “>= 25%
    • c/ at least 75%: “>= 75%
    • d/ (as good as) all applications: “= 100%
