Super and subunits¶
In the OpenAtlas database a feature is a subunit of a Place. A Place can consist of one or more subunits called Features (e.g. buildings, graves, pits, ditches, ramparts etc.). Features themselves are structured in the same way as Places and can consist of one or more subunits that are labelled as Stratigraphic unit.
