Geographic Location properties for township, section, range, quarter when setting representation to Goegraphic

Currently when you load a file, create a date module from a file or do an exploration from a file you can't selection the Township, range, section or quarter as a geographic representation.


So if I want to show the top producing oil and/or gas wells by township or show wells by section I can't do this.

    Cognos supports upto 5 admin levels and post codes in the product today where applicable. (not all regions in the world will have a geospatial admin hierarchy down to 5 levels. For example in France we can render Country, regions, departments, Arrondissiments, Cantons, Communes and 5 digit postal codes)

    What regions in the world are we attempting to map here?

    A recommended work around for regions we can't map by default out of the box is to use the custom polygons capability.
