Aurora allows you to predefine jurisdictional requirements, such as roof setbacks. Whenever you create a new design, Aurora will look up the relevant jurisdictional information and associate it with your design.
To create a new Jurisdiction:
1. Go to your account settings by clicking on your Name then on Settings in the drop down menu.
2. In the left hand side bar, click on Jurisdictions.
3. Click on Add Jurisdiction. You can either create a state-wide Jurisdiction (select State from the Type dropdown) or tie the Jurisdiction to a location (address).
On the next screen you can specify the following settings:
- Name: The name of the jurisdiction
- Type: The type of the jurisdiction (either State or Local)
- State: The state this jurisdiction applies to (only available if Type is State)
- Address: The address (location) of the jurisdiction (only available if Type is Local)
- Setbacks: The setbacks requirements for this jurisdiction
- Building Notes: A free form text field for any information that may be relevant during the roof modeling process. Aurora will make this information available to designers in
