Selection Tools

Several additional tools reside in the lower-left corner of the Responder Map Viewer.

Selection Management

Use the Selection Management options to determine how features are added to the Attribute Viewer.

  • Replace: Select this option if you want the web application to empty the Attribute Viewer before displaying the newly selected set. The displayed features always reflect the most recent selected set.

  • Add: Select this option to retain previous selection sets when adding a newly selected set. Each time the user selects additional features on the map, the number of selected features in the Attribute Viewer grows and nothing is removed.

  • Remove: Use this option to remove selected features from the Attribute Viewer. Use the cursor to draw a rectangle around the selected features on the map and remove them from the Attribute Viewer.

  • Intersect: Select only the features that intersect with an existing selected set. If the Attribute Viewer is empty and this option is selected, nothing is chosen. You must first have a set of selected features displayed in the Attribute Viewer.

The Lock/Unlock tools work with the Attribute Viewer and impact the selection set. You can lock a feature so that it is not removed from the selected set.

 Lock

Select one or more rows in the Attribute Viewer and click the Lock button to lock these rows into the Attribute Viewer. These features are not removed from the Attribute Viewer until the locks are removed. The Clear Results button does not remove locked features from the Attribute Viewer. Likewise, performing another Search or Identify does not remove locked rows. You can hover the cursor over a locked row in the Attribute Viewer to display the Remove Feature From Results tool. Click Remove Feature From Results to remove the feature from the Attribute Viewer.

Once locked, the features are marked with a lock icon in the Attribute Viewer.

 Unlock

Select one or more locked rows and click the Unlock button to remove the locks from these feature rows. Once unlocked, these features can be removed from the Attribute Viewer using the Clear Results button or by performing another Search or Identify.

 Remove Locks

Use this tool to remove all existing locks from all tabs in the Attribute Viewer. Once the locks are removed, the features can be removed from the Attribute Viewer using the Clear Results button or by performing another Search or Identify.
