what is SICOM Tool? The SDM recognizes two special classes of client: tools and managers. A tool is intended to be a simple, general-purpose client that would be useful in a wide variety of applications. By contrast, a manager is intended to be a more complex, specifically-targeted client that would perform tasks appropriate to a single application or perhaps a restricted set of similar applications. While these philosophical considerations are important when designing an application, what really matters, i.e. what makes a tool a tool and a manager a manager, is that they follow a well-defined protocol for interacting with the SDM.

Due to their general nature, tools essentially extend the functionality of the SDM. To this end, RITI supplies several tools with the SICOM developer package. These are:

Layer Annotator - designed for annotating a field of the DBF file accompaning the selected layer on the view.

Layer Classifier - This tool is designed for user to classify a chosen layer according to an attribute on the accompanying DBF file.

Layer Prioritizer - This tool is designed for user to modify the display priority of layers

Feature Selector - This tool is designed for user to inquiry information regarding a feature

Feature Modifier - This tool is designed for user to change the position or color of the transient lines and labels (name) created on the current view.

Surveyor - This tool is designed for user to measure distance between two points and the bearing.

The developer is free to include as many of these as desired in an end-user application. The developer can build and include his own tools exclusively, or include a mixture of RITI-supplied and developer-supplied tools.
