Manipulating areas through a measure

For some calculations or models, Areas can (or must) be used as inputs. For a base situation, it is easy to work with Areas as manipulatable datatypes, as they can be freely imported and modified. However, for a future design, it may be necessary to activate or deactivate areas so that the state of the data accurately reflects the state the data should be in in a future situation.

Using measures, it is now more easily possible to add Areas to Measures as simple on-off toggles. This replaces an old event-based system in which all the wiring had to be done manually. Instead, you can now add Areas to Measures directly, and indicate whether they are to be activated or deactivated. And then then measure is immediately ready for use.
