Search Panel

All text-based searching is accessed via the Search Panel in the Search drop-down list. Each Search routine is designed by the Dekho Administrator and is made accessible to specific Maps and specific Roles. This means not all searches will be made available to all users.

The objective of searching is to Select features from the map for closer inspection, reporting or printing. Other features that are made accessible after a search is run is exporting tabular data using the Results Panel or using the Selection Panel to manipulate selection results.

Two distinct types of queries are available; Basic Search and oneSearch. Both are accessed in the drop-down list on the Search Panel. To differentiate a Basic Search from oneSearch, only Basic Searches display the Search and Reset buttons and oneSearch queries are run by hitting [Enter]. oneSearch is only able to select a single map feature, whereas Basic Search has capacity to select multiple features.
