{{IMSMANG}} provides several ways to add country structure areas. These include manually entering the information starting with the country and working down through each level or importing the data from an .XLS file using customised routines to import data automatically from an official gazetteer. To display a country structure area like a town or village on the map, it is necessary to add a geographic coordinate for the area. Typically, a single coordinate is sufficient for displaying an area on the map.
As with all data elements in {{IMSMANG}}, the country structure supports the incorporation of Custom Defined Fields (CDFs ) to augment predefined data fields. These fields can be used to collect and track information such as population, numbers of families and other socioeconomic and infrastructure information that is helpful in planning mine action activities.
