What are custom tools? Dekho can be customized to accommodate custom tools. A custom tool is a small .swf file, usually copied in your Dekho installation folder. It enables customers to enhance Dekho with new interactive features.
Examples of custom SWF add-ons include: Geolocation, StreetView, earthmine, Dual-map, Geocode tool, GeoRSS, Google maps tool, NearMap add-on, etc.
The Dekho installation package features a Flex project including examples. This SDK allows Dekho customer with Flex Builder experience to develop their own custom tool.
Please note: Dekho custom tools are not supported by Esri support. Most tools include the Flex source code and customers are free to modify and recompile the projects. Contact us if you have any questions, or if you have made improvements worth sharing with the Dekho community.
