The Subtracts & Depth tool is another cornerstone of the Tracts software. Being able to build your own relational grid and apply it to your flowchart is invaluable in determining ownership over multiple severances.
When building your "map" inside of the flowchart, it is helpful to add the shape of the severance to emulate what the actual map would look like. This makes for an easier reference point when looking at both your own GIS map and our own tool. When creating the shapes, not everyone realizes that you can create shapes that don't have 90-degree angles. To accomplish this, there is a smaller sized red dot in the middle of the lines making up the shape. Select the smaller sized dots then drag and snap them to a line inside of the grid.
The Remainder tool is useful when working with many severances in one area. With this part of the tool activated you are able to see what sections created have intersections of shapes or are remainders and not included in anything else. Easily right click these highlighted sections to add them as a new severance.
Label each severance as clearly and concisely as possible. If the name is short, you are able to see the entirety of it in the list of subtracts on the top left of your screen. If not, you will need to hover over the area to see the full name.
