2.2     Reason Code Rationale

Below is the rationale behind each reason code.

1.                                             Biotoxin / Biotoxines

                                         Closure following the observation of high levels of biotoxin(s)

                                         Long term closure of an area with a known history of high toxicity

                                         High biotoxin events and deviations from sampling (long or short term, planned or unplanned)(CSSP 4.2.1) (Pacific region)

 

      Used by/utilisé par :   CFIA / DFO

2.        Cessation of Biotoxin monitoring / Arrêt de suivi des biotoxines

                                         Short term closure due to lack of sampling : end of season (aquaculture areas),  impossible to sample on a regular basis (bad weather, samplers unavailable, etc.)

      Used by/utilisé par :   CFIA / DFO

3.                                             Chemical / Chimique

                                         This code is used when chemical contaminants are discharged or present in a shellfish area.

      Used by/utilisé par :   CFIA / ECCC / DFO

4. Sanitary (conditionally managed area / Pollution sanitaire (géré sous condition)

                                         The conditions for harvesting safe shellfish in a conditionally managed area are not met, such as:

   a wastewater treatment plant or collection system fails or is bypassed

   a rainfall threshold is exceeded

   the water quality has deteriorated with a change in season

 

      Used by/utilisé par :   ECCC/DFO

5.                  Sanitary (emergency) / Pollution sanitaire (urgence)

                                         An emergency situation includes unusual weather, flooding, spills of sewage.

·      Significant meteorological phenomenon (eg heavy precipitation).

·      Municipal wastewater unplanned discharge

·       Pathogenic Illness

 

      Used by/utilisé par :   CFIA/ECCC/DFO

6.         Sanitary (shellstock) / Pollution sanitaire (stock de mollusque)

                                         Closure caused by unacceptable microbiological sample results in shellfish (CSSP sections 6.3 and 6.4)

      Used by/utilisé par :   CFIA/ECCC/DFO

7. Sanitary (water quality or pollution source) / Pollution sanitaire (qualité de l’eau ou source de pollution)

                                         The concentration of fecal coliforms in seawater exceeds the criteria of the CSSP. Presence of bacteriological sources of pollution.

      Used by/utilisé par :   ECCC/DFO

8.                                                   Conservation

                                         Assigned to other closure types on the SHELLI map related to conservation

      Used by/utilisé par :   DFO

2.3     Revocation Permission Grid

The revocation workflows follow a specific permission process. If CFIA initiates a revocation, then ECCC must concur, and vice versa (see the grid below). DFO can initiate and concur any prohibition order. The Revocation workflows restrict what is displayed based on the combination of reason code and region associated with the user’s permissions. In the event that a user from CFIA or ECCC attempt to concur a prohibition already initiated by someone else from their own agency, an error message will appear.

Internal interface

 

The internal interface has many elements that allow you to interact with the map.

The main tool bar ‘tools’ includes the default features to click and extract data. Of particular importance is the layer list, where you can change what is displayed on the map. Check the Layers pane and interact with each layer and sub layer as needed.

 

The Prohibition Orders tab houses the launch point of the 6 Prohibition Orders modules

The Variation Orders tab houses the launch point of the 2 Variation Order Modules

The Management tab houses the launch point of the Management Module.

4. Core workflow 1 : Submit

 

The submit workflow is used by CFIA, ECCC, or DFO

 

This workflow allows the user to submit a recommendation for a new Prohibition Order.

 

Step

Description

0. Setup

Select the Prohibition Orders… tab

 

The Prohibition Orders tab shows the 6 workflow buttons

Select ‘submit’ to start the workflow.

 

All querries restricted to Regions associated with user.

1. Intro

This is the launch menu, it provides a brief overview how to proceed. The Submit workflow has two branches to follow, either a single area submission or a multi area submission.

 

Select the option you prefer and click next to proceed.

2. Draw Single

2.1 Draw using MGMT area


Click on Map


 

 

After selecting “single area”, you are brought to this menu.

 

Changing the selected radio button will change which sub menu is visible.

 

The default option is to select an existing management area (from polygons stored in the Management Area database).

 

Options called up are based on user’s region permissions.

 

You can either click on the map, or select from the list.

 

Clicking on the map adds a token to display. Adds markup polygon + details to user interface

 

Selecting an option in the drop down will auto populate the list of sectors.

 

Clicking on an item in the list will zoom to the location, add a markup polygon, and add details.

 

 

2.2 Draw using polygon

Click draw polygon

Draw polygon option.

 

The menu items will change. Click the blue button ‘Draw Polygon’, and then click at multiple points on the map.  

 

Once the sketch is completed, it is removed and replaced with a markup polygon.

 

The coordinates of the vertices are added to the display.

2.3 Draw using Classified growing area

Click on map

Selecting this option allows you to copy a classification polygon supplied by ECCC.

 

Click on the blue button and then click on themap.

 

A token is placed on the map and reproduces a polygon in the ECCC classification layer.

 

The classification of this polygon is added to the menu.

2.4 Draw using archived PO

Selecting this option allows you to reproduce a previously issued prohibition order.

 

You may either click on the map or select from a list.

 

By clicking on the map, a token is placed on the map and reproduces the first polygon found in the PO archive as a markup polygon.

 

Data from archive is copied over to the session.

 

Alternatively you can select the year the prohibition order was issued from the year dropdown menu. Clicking on the listed Prohibition Order will copy it from the archive and add it to the map.

2.5 Draw using Predefined coordinates

 

Selecting this option adds a text area and a ‘digitize’ button.

 

Input a series of coordinate pairs, or an entire paragraph containing a geographic description.

 

Click digitize to add a polygon using these coordinates.

 

The coordinates must be written in decimal degrees, with latitude first and longitude second. N and O or W must be used to denote latitude and longitude respectively.

 

n.b. French spelling using commas to denote decimal places won’t work. Replace commas with periods.

2.6 Update shell


If the drawn polygon has its centroid in a location that is not in the region associated with the user, this alert appears.

 

3. Attributes

3.1 MGMT area, place name

If the submission is drawn using a predefined management area or an archived prohibition order then these fields will be already filled in.

 

Fill in the details as required, or leave them blank.

 

3.2 Geographic Description

 

If the polygon already has geometry information, it will be reproduced here in the English and French descriptions.

 

Otherwise fill them in as much as possible.

Multi Area PO

6. Draw Multi Area PO

If you selected ‘draw using a multi are a prohibition order’ in menu 1, you will see this menu next.

Two options are on offer, either drawing a prohibition order based on existing management areas, or by an existing multi area prohibition order.

6.1 Select from a list of Management Areas

 

Use drop down to select from list,


Click next

 

 

Selecting an area populates all of the subareas in a list, with an indication if there is an active Prohibition Order in the management area or not.

6.2 Select from a Multi Area prohibition Order



Use drop down to select from list,

 

Click next

Selecting this option populates the drop down list with multi area prohibition orders found in the user’s region. 

 

Then a list will display all polygons contained within this multi area PO, and list them by place name EN and FR

Selecting the item will zoom to the location

7 Assign Group


Now the user must group together all the selected polygons to build a submission.

A grid appears to assign the polygons into groups. By default all polygons are assigned the ‘not affected’ option. You can select which group to assign each polygon.

In the following menu’s you will be able to assign a reason code and species list to each group.

Once completed, the software will colour each polygon based on the assigned group. Unaffected polygons are given a translucent white colour and not stored in the temporary dataset.

Clicking next will allow you to modify the geometry attributes in step 3.

4. Species

4.1 Contact and Email

Contact information should match the login information

This menu will allow you to assign a reason code and define the species list for the submission.

4.2 Group1

 

Hidden if step 2 completed, visible if step 6 completed (see table 2)

4.3 Reason

Drop down with reason code options. Select the reason for creating this submission.

 

The list of reason codes differs based on the user permissions. Consult the Permissions section for more details.

 

4.4 Species

You may now modify the list of species included in the submission. The final list is solely based on which species is checked or unchecked.

 

However, selecting the ‘all bivalves option’ will automatically check off all the species. This is the default option.

 

Selecting one of the category options (clams, Mussels, Oysters, Scallops, Snails) will check or uncheck all the species in this category.

 

4.5 Comments

Enter the comments explaining why the submission is being done. Each RISC has its own protocol for what should get entered here.

 

Your name and the date will automatically be added afterwards.

5. Summary

5.1 Rationale

This menu will reproduce what has been stored in the app memory prior to updating the database. If there are any mistakes you can restart and wipe the temporary data entry.

5.2 Geometry

This menu outlines the geometry attributes entered.

5.3 Species

This submenu outlines the species list included in the submission.

5.4 Revocation

This submenu outlines whether a revocation will be initiated as a consequence to issuing this prohibition order.

8. Revoke


If a prohibition order should also be revoked in conjunction with this submission. Clicking the ‘revoke’ button in the previous menu will bring you here. You will be shown a list (per submission group), where you may select the name of the prohibition order to revoke.

 

This will mimic the initiate revocation step.

9. End sequence

9.1 write to database


If you click ‘submit’ at the summary screen, the temporary data will be written to the database. A pop up appears if this is successful.

9.2 End


After writing to the database, the application will now process the initiate revocation step if there is one. Then it will build the subscriber list and generate the automated e-mail. The temporary memory is cleared, and the map is reset. Once all this is done, a success popup appears.

 

 



 

 

5. Core workflow 2 : Review

In this workflow you can review a submission completed at the ‘submit’ step. You will add other details like correcting the geographic description, defining the signing authority, and outlining the issuance and enforcement dates.


 

 

 

Step

Description

0. Setup

Select the ‘review’ button in the prohibition orders tab.

 

The review workflow will run. If you don’t have permission to proceed a popup will appear and the workflow will close.

1. Intro

In the first menu you can pick one of three options to proceed. Select the one you wish before proceeding.

1.1 Click on Map

If you select ‘click on map’, you may click on the blue button and select the submission prohibition order on the map.

 

You will place a token on the map. A polygon is added to the display, and attributes are added to the display.

 

 

1.2 Select from List

If you select this option a list will appear with all of the submissions associated with your region. These are closure GUID’s which identify prohibition order submissions.

Clicking on an item will center the map and add markup outlining the submission.

 

Attributes are added to the display.

1.3 Select Previous Reviewed


Clicking on items in the list will center the map on the selected geometry. Attributes are added to the appropriate field. Changing selection will change attributes

1.4 Reject Submission


Clicking button makes a popup appear to confirm rejection. If yes, polygon is deleted, cannot be selected again.

2. Reshape

2.1 Pick Polygon

 

You can now reshape the supplied geometry. This drop down menu is hidden if only one polygon is in the submission. Otherwise select the polygon you wish to redraw.

2.2 Redraw


Click on the blue button and then redraw the polygon on the map. A popup appears after you are done to confirm the sketch. The two shapes will be merged together.

2.3 Revocation


By default this menu is greyed out. If you want to revoke a prohibition order in tandem to the current submission select ‘yes’.

Then scroll through the list and select the desired Prohibition Order number.

 

When clicking on an tiem, the map will zoom to the location in question and add markup to the map.

2.4 Clip, add coordinates, calculate a PO number.

Once you click ‘next’ the app will perform two major operations.

 

First, if the supplied polygon needs to be cut along the coastline, it will run the clipping algorithm. This will overlay the reference land layer and remove all intersection with ‘land’. Once the clip is completed, new coordinates will be calculated and replace the supplied geographic description.

 

Second, the application will now calculate the appropriate Prohibition Order Number. This will be generated based on the reference PO Timeline table, calling up the list of all Prohibition Orders issued so far this year, and computing the next one in the list. It will then construct the number by extracting the first letter of the DFO Region’s name, adding the letters TN for biotoxin related prohibitions, CH for chemical related prohibitions and SN for sanitary related prohibitions, add in the current year, and finally the document in sequence.

3. Attributes

3.1 Rationale


The rationale for the prohibition is displayed. You will see the reason code, the computed prohibition order, the PO flagged for revocation, and the comments supplied at the Submit step.

 

Please include your comments based on the review.

3.2 Signature


In the Signature sub-menu, you are asked to include details on the signature block.

 

The Signature Name is an autocomplete form. As you type the desired name, it will search the database and autopopulate if it finds the name in the SHELLI database.

 

Otherwise you can write the desired name, title, and location.

 

You must then define the issuance and enforcement dates. By default the enforcement date is the same as the chosen Issuance date. Click the calendar to open up a date menu, or write the date directly in the format DD/MM/YYY

3.3 Geometry


In this submenu you can rewrite the geographic details.

 

The details stored in the database are pre-populated, and you can rewrite them at will.

3.4 Species


In this sub-menu you will see the list of species affected by the prohibition order.

 

You may modify this list by checking or unchecking any item on the list.

 

Selecting the ‘All Bivalves’ option has two effects.

1. IT will add this phrase to the longform species description.

2. It will cause the final polygon to display with an opaque red to the general public.

 

Not selecting this option will instead omit the phrase, and cause the polygon to display with a red and transparent hatching.

3.5 Build dates and build PDF

Once you click next the application will perform two major operations.

 

First it will calculate the dates based on the chosen Issuance and Enforcement dates. The output is a text string (day month year) in both languages, as well as the final datestamp to be added to the database.

 

Second it will run the pdf generators. These will create a preview of the prohibition orders available in the next menu. Each pdf generator can take a while, loading times vary based on your connection to the server.

4. Summary

4.1 Rationale


In this menu you will see the data entered so far. If there are any errors, you can start over by clicking the ‘Restart’ button.

 

In this sub-menu you will see the details of the rationale.

2.4 Build dates and build PDF

Once you click next the application will perform two major operations.

 

First it will calculate the dates based on the chosen Issuance and Enforcement dates. The output is a text string (day month year) in both languages, as well as the final datestamp to be added to the database.

 

Second it will run the pdf generators. These will create a preview of the prohibition orders available in the next menu. Each pdf generator can take a while, loading times vary based on your connection to the server.

Converts user input (Unix time) into text strings EN and FR for Date Revoke is Issued, and date Revoke comes into force.

3. Summary

3.1 Rationale

 

This sub-menu will show the rationale associated with the prohibition order.

3.2 Signature

 

This sub-menu will show the signature details associated with this revocation.

3.3 Geometry


This sub-menu will show the geometry details associated with this prohibition order.

3.4 Documents and Email Suppression


The pdf preview is shown in this sub-menu. Click on the hyperlink to open a new browser tab to display the generated pdf.

 

If no pdf is generated, clicking on the hyperlink will simply open the internal map in a new tab.

 

Completing the complete revocation workflow sends emails to two lists : the internal subscription and public subscription.

 

If you select the ‘no’ option here, the public email will be suppressed and no notification will be sent. By default the ‘yes’ option is selected.

4. End sequence

3.1 write to database


If you click ‘submit’ at the summary screen, the temporary data will be written to the database. A pop up appears if this is successful.

3.2 End


After writing to the database, the application will build and send the emails. The temporary memory is cleared, and the map is reset. Once all this is done, a success popup appears.

 

 



 

 

10. Core workflow 7 : Create VO

This workflow will allow you to add or modify polygons stored in the variation order database.

There are four types of polygons in this dataset:

1- Baseline polygons, whose purpose is to identify typical size and quota limits for each species

2 – Annual or seasonal closure polygons, whose purpose is to represent regularly re-occuring conservation closures prescribed by a statute or some management plan

3 – Variation Order polygons, which are meant to represent actual variation orders. These should be used for short notice and limited duration variations for conservation purposes

4 – CMP trigger events, which are meant to represent a wastewater discharge. These should be used when DFO wants to show that an active wastewater discharge is occurring on the public interface.


 

 

Step

Description

0. Setup

Select the ‘Create VO’ button from the Variation Orders tab.

 

1. Start

1.1 select new or existing


In this menu you can choose whether to create a brand new polygon or modify an existing one.

 

The menus in the Modify Existing option are described in step 5.

2. New Polygon

2.1 Select MGMT Area


The first step is define the geometry of the polygon.

 

You can select an existing management area either by clicking on the map or selecting from the list.

 

Click the blue button, and then place a token on the map. If a mangemetn area is present, it will be copied and some temporary markup is added to the map. The geographic description will display in the menu.

 

The dropdown menu shows the list of management areas. Select the one of interest. Then click on the desired sector. The screen will zoom to the location, and add the temporary markup to the display. The geographic description is added to the menu.

2.2 Draw Polygon


You can draw the polygon. To do so click on the blue button and then click on the map. A polygon will appear.

 

Once completed, temporary markup is added to the map and the coordinates are added to the menu.

2.3 Using Lat Long coordinates


Selecting this option adds a text area and a ‘digitize’ button.

 

Input a series of coordinate pairs, or an entire paragraph containing a geographic description.

 

Click digitize to add a polygon using these coordinates.

 

The coordinates must be written in decimal degrees, with latitude first and longitude second. N and O or W must be used to denote latitude and longitude respectively.

 

n.b. French spelling using commas to denote decimal places won’t work. Replace commas with periods.

2.4 Clip, add coordinates

Once you click ‘next’ the application will clip the polygon.

 

If the supplied polygon needs to be cut along the coastline, it will run the clipping algorithm. This will overlay the reference land layer and remove all intersection with ‘land’. Once the clip is completed, new coordinates will be calculated and replace the supplied geographic description.

3. Attributes

3.1 Rationale


In this menu you can now define the attributes of the Variation Order.

 

Indicate if the polygon is active or not. Inactive polygon will not be displayed to the public.

 

Assign a polygon type from the four options.

 

Give the polygon a name.

 

Determine the Start and End date. A polygon is only visible if the current time is between the Start and End dates.

 

Add comments as needed to explain the rationale.

3.2 Geometry


In this sub-menu you can define the geometry attributes. These fields are pre-populated with data supplied from the database. You can rewrite them as needed.

4. Species

You must now add attribute information for each species. Each sub-menu is identical, save for the species in question. You must repeat the s.4 steps for each species.

4.1 Target


Select the target of this polygon. The options are the commercial harvest, recreational harvest, both recreational and commercial harvest, or not affected for this species.

 

By default Not affected is selected.

 

Changing the selection will enable data entry in the other parts of this menu.

4.2 Size and Quota


Define the size and quota information for this species associated with this polygon. Enter numbers here, the units will be supplied by the database.

4.3 Method


Identify the method restrictions associated with this species. By default all methods are prohibited, however you can select the ‘some’ option and then check or uncheck the desired methods.

5. Modifying Existing

5.1 Click on Map

 

You can click on the map. To do so click on the blue button and then place a token on the map. If a valid polygon is selected, temporary markup is added to the display.

5.2 Select from List

 

You can select from a list. A dropdown menu appears, select the desired polygon type. Then a list of all polygons of that type in your region will appear. Clicking on the item will zoom to the location and add temporary markup.

 

Once complete you will move to step 3 and 4 to finish completing this workflow.

6. Summary

6.1 Rationale



The summary menu will show the data entered so far.

 

This sub-menu will reflect the rationale associated with this polygon.

6.2 Geometry


This sub-menu will repeat the geometry details associated with the polygon.

6.3 Species


This sub-menu will repeat the species information associated with the polygon.

7. End Sequence

7.1 write to database


If you click ‘submit’ at the summary screen, the temporary data will be written to the database. A pop up appears if this is successful.

7.2 End


After writing to the database the temporary memory is cleared, and the map is reset. Once all this is done, a success popup appears.

 



 

 

11. Core workflow 8 : Delete VO

This workflow allows you to modify or remove polygons in the Variation Order database. It is meant to be a short and quick way to remove them from public view.


 

 

Step

Description

0. Setup

Select ‘Delete VO’ from the Variation Orders menu

 

1. Deactivate

1.1 Click on map


You can click on the map. To do so click on the blue button and then place a token on the map. If a valid polygon is selected, temporary markup is added to the display.

1.2 Select from list


You can select from a list. A dropdown menu appears, select the desired polygon type. Then a list of all polygons of that type in your region will appear. Clicking on the item will zoom to the location and add temporary markup.

2. Delete

2. Delete

If you want to permanently delete the polygon, click the ‘delete’ button. A confirmation pop up appears. If you confirm, the polygon is permanently deleted.

3. Deactivate

3.1 Polygon status


Select the desired status of the polygon. If active = no, then the polygon will never be displayed to the public.

3.2 Date


The dates stored in the database are supplied. Modify them as needed to change the issuance, start, and end dates.

4. End Sequence

4.1 write to database


If you click ‘submit’ at the summary screen, the temporary data will be written to the database. A pop up appears if this is successful.

4.2 End

 

After writing to the database the temporary memory is cleared, and the map is reset. Once all this is done, a success popup appears.
