Frequently asked questions and answers (FAQ) about ELAN-NRW

The GIS editor (GIS = Geo Information System) is available for drawing in the partial field geometries. If your areas have not changed significantly compared to the previous year, it is recommended to use the previous year's geometries in the GIS as a first step (see 14). There are different ways to create a new partial field geometry. Here are two examples:

If the field boundaries are identical to the field block boundaries, click with the selection tool (arrow) the field block until it is shown filled in yellow. Then select the function in the toolbar "Take over geometry".

If the field only covers part of the field block, you must sketch the boundaries by hand. To draw a field geometry, click on "Draw partial field geometry" Now you can place the corner points of the geometry in the aerial photos of the respective field block with a mouse click. As soon as at least three corner points have been set, you can end the drawing by double-clicking the left mouse button. The drawing can also be done by pressing the cancel button canceled in the toolbar.

You do not only have to specify the landscape elements that you want to apply for in the landscape element directory. You must also draw in the requested part of the landscape element in the GIS editor, i.e. create an LE geometry. If your areas have not changed significantly compared to the previous year, it is advisable to use the previous year's geometries in the GIS as a first step (see 14). There are various ways of creating new LE geometries that have been applied for.

If you apply for an entire landscape element, you can first select the reference geometry of the landscape element with the selection tool. Then click on the "Apply geometry" function The reference geometry is automatically adopted as the requested LE geometry. All you have to do is make the assignment to the partial field.

If you only want to request parts of a landscape element, select the tool "Draw in requested LE geometry" . This allows you to set individual corner points and thus frame the part of the landscape element that you want to apply for. The LE geometry must be drawn over an existing LE reference. After you have finished drawing, assign the LE geometry to a partial plot.

In all cases, you can retrospectively change the geometry using the "Change geometry" function change.

In the GIS editor of the ELAN-NRW application, a distinction is made between two different functions for specifying landscape elements.

The creation of requested LE geometries serves to draw in the part of a landscape element that you have requested. This is comparable to the functions for recording the partial pitch geometries.

With the function "Enter SU proposal" you can enter a new landscape element that is not yet listed in the NRW reference database. This function is not to be used to create requested LE geometries and should not be confused with it.

If you enter a LE proposal and you apply for the entire LE, the requested LE geometry can also be generated directly when the LE proposal is created. Only if you only apply for part of the SU proposal do you have to prepare a separate SU geometry for this part.

With the tool "cut geometry" you can automatically cut your drawn partial field or LE geometry at the field block or LE reference, the neighboring surfaces, your own imported geometries or a backdrop. To do this, select the partial cut or the requested LE geometry that is to be cut off and activate the tool. A window opens in which you can choose whether the geometry should be cut off at the boundaries of the field block / landscape element, the neighboring areas, your own imported geometries or a backdrop.

With the area manager you have the option of confirming or rejecting several suggestions or all of them at the same time. The area manager opens automatically when you open the GIS if there are unconfirmed suggestions in your application. Here you can see all the partial fields and the requested landscape elements that have a suggested area. To see the proposals for the current application year in the map window, click on the magnifying glass icon. If nothing has changed compared to the previous year and you would like to use the suggestion, check the "Suggestion for act. Apply year of application ". If you do not want to use the suggestion for the current year, check the "Delete suggestion" column. If you want to take over all lines in one step, click on "Select all" under the area listing. By clicking on "Execute action", all checked actions are carried out in one go. You then have the option of processing all surfaces in further steps with the tools available.

You can also confirm an individual proposal for the current year by pressing select the suggestion you want. By clicking on the button the selected proposal is adopted for the current year. If you do not want to use the partial proposal, choose with the suggestion and delete it by clicking on . You will then be asked whether you only want to delete the suggestion or also the associated data.

If the boundaries have changed significantly compared to the previous year, it makes sense to discard the suggestion and redraw the geometry. To delete a suggestion, first select the desired suggestion with the selection tool out. Now click on . You will then be asked whether you just want to delete the suggestion or also the associated data.

If there are only minor deviations in the field limits compared to the previous year, you can also accept the suggestion and then use the "Change geometry" tool to adjust. There is also the option of dividing or merging geometries. You can find more detailed descriptions of the tools in the manual.

All field blocks are available in the GIS of the ELAN WebClient. If you are looking for a new field block from which you know the FLIK, you can use the button "Search field block" and quickly find the entry of the FLIK. If you have already entered the FLIK in the area directory, you can jump to this area after checking the corresponding line in the GIS.

If you do not know the FLIK that you want to reload, you can find it out using the TIM-Online internet application from Geobasis NRW:

If you know the location where you want to apply for a field block, you can also search for the field block using the geographical view and moving the map.

The field blocks and landscape elements displayed in the GIS editor are constantly updated during the application phase.

A field is a coherently cultivated agriculturally used area of ​​a farmer that has been tilled with a crop or has been withdrawn from production. Thus, a blow can always have only one type of fruit and only occur in one field block. (Only for fields in Baden-Württemberg or Rhineland-Palatinate is it permissible to specify several FLIKs if the field extends over several parcels). You will receive the error message "No uniform fruit type in field" x "if you have assigned the same field number for individual pieces with different crops. If you cultivate a contiguous area with different crops, you have to create a new field for each type of crop.

A division of a field into several partial fields may be necessary if you want to apply for subsidies in the area of ​​agri-environmental measures, the compensatory allowance for less-favored areas and the compensatory payment for areas with environmentally specific restrictions.

Example: You cultivate a contiguous grassland area (crop code 459), but only part of this area is in a protected area for which you can apply for compensation payments (Appendix B1). Funding is not possible for the other part of the area that is not in the protected area. In this case you would have to create two sub-plot: a sub-plot (e.g. 1a), which includes the area that is in the protected area, and a sub-plot (1b) for the remaining area that is not in a protected area. In this example, both are given the same field number (here: 1), as it is a contiguous cultivated area with the same type of fruit (grassland).

The detail area can either be reopened by clicking the "... GIS" button in the menu bar or by clicking on the blue crossbar (see below). This is located at the bottom left when the GIS detail area is hidden.

You cannot make changes to field block or landscape element geometries. Reference area changes may only be made by the district office. If a field block or a landscape element needs to be corrected, use the option of setting a reference point , or contact your district office.

How you can register and apply for a landscape element that has not yet been included in the reference data is described in detail in the manual.

The receipt can only be printed out after the application data has been successfully transmitted electronically. In this respect, the receipt is the electronic confirmation of receipt of your data.

Please note: From 2021, only the electronic transmission of the data is required for the application so that the application is deemed to have been submitted.

With ELAN-NRW you can only submit the application once in 2021. You have the opportunity to correct your application data within the application period. However, the changes can only be submitted to your district office using the appropriate paper forms. Blank forms for notifying subsequent changes to the area in the area or landscape element directory are stored in the application's menu tree as PDF documents. You can find additional blank application or change forms on the Internet at

download. Enter your changes in this and send them to your district office with the date and signature. Submitting the data again via the Internet with ELAN-NRW is not possible in 2021.

The application for hunting and flowering strips is to be applied for on contiguous arable land that is uniformly cultivated except for the strips or partial areas. These are designed to contribute to biodiversity or to regulate wild boar populations.

Within a field, the sum of the hunting and flowering stiffnesses must be subordinate to the coded main crop and may account for a maximum area of ​​20%.

All fields that have been given the bond S in the area directory are shown in the table of the annex.

The abbreviation "vDOP" stands for "preliminary digital orthophoto". Digital orthophotos (DOP) are high-resolution, distortion-free, true-to-scale, photographic images of the earth's surface. They are georeferenced and available across the board.

As long as the process chain required to manufacture a DOP has not yet been completed, it is called a vDOP. The vDOPs available in ELAN in some aerial photo areas have already been prepared true to scale, so that the officially valid and precise delimitation and digitization of your areas can be carried out without restriction. After running through the process chain, if a vDOP has become a DOP, there may be differences in brightness compared to the vDOP.

In ELAN NRW, the GIS legend has been offering you the “current satellite image NRW” level in addition to the conventional aerial image since 2020. This level is switched off by default.

The Sentinel 2 satellite image here can give you a fairly up-to-date overview of the state of the area.

Please note that this is a lower-resolution image with mainly visual and informative value. It is not intended for the delimitation and digitization of your application parcels.

For this purpose, high-resolution orthophotos of the "aerial photo (digitization basis)" level are still available.

If you would like to expand the scope of an area that is already included in your permit, you can specify the scope of your follow-up application in the right-hand column of the area lists for the payment request. The column “Scope of the follow-up application” can be filled in if this area has been selected for a continuation of the funding.

If you would like to expand the scope of your permit to include areas that are not yet part of your permit, you can apply for these areas in the lower area of ​​the form in ELAN. To do this, in the lower section of the form, check the box next to "For the area (s) listed below, I / we apply for the extension of funding in addition to the areas listed above ..." ... ". You can enter the desired partial fields in the following table of areas.
