Hallway types

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hallway types and hallway shape types are terms of the order, description and interpretation of agricultural areas.

Examples of hallway types

Hallway types are:

  • District : A district is the total area belonging to a settlement. Originally it was determined according to customary law, later measured by cadastre.
    • Corridor : Part of the district that is subject to individual or private use, divided into plots.
      • Parcel (plot): Smallest owned unit in the hallway. (There are different ways of speaking in the land registers for each country.)
        • Property parcel
        • Business parcel (several owned parcels, areas of various uses)
    • Allmende : In contrast to the corridor, the communal area included the meadow, but also pastures and forests.

Examples of hallway types

Hallway types are:

  • Pure hallway - one type of parcel prevails
  • Mixed corridor - there are several types of parcels

Corridor shapes

  1. Block corridor - plot ratio length to width 1: 1–1: 5/1: 10
  2. Striped land - parcel ratio length to width from 1:10
    • Broad corridor : 1: 10–1: 20
    • Long strip corridor:> 1:20
  3. Gewannflur - parcel association of narrow, parallel, strip-shaped basic parcels in a mixture
    • Number of parcels in Gewann = number of houses
