New to the CEDRA product line is the CEDRA-AGSTools software, which is a collection of VB.NET software procedures designed for incorporation into new and existing ArcGIS Server Web applications. Recognizing the growing interest of users to create Web-based applications, the CEDRA-AGSTools software provides users the ability to incorporate specialized viewing, buffering, exporting and data management tools into their Web-based applications.
Distributed in source code form, users are able to use the software as is or customize it to meet their specific requirements. The inline documentation provides an excellent means for users to learn how to use the ArcGIS Web ADF in developing ArcGIS Server Web Applications. The techniques shown in the code can then be applied to develop other custom tools. According to the company, the license fee for the CEDRA-AGSTools software is far less than the cost to hire a consultant to develop all of the tools included in the CEDRA-AGSTools software. Additionally, there is no limit to the number of users that can access the tools within the CEDRA-AGSTools tools, and there are no royalty fees if the CEDRA-AGSTools software is used to develop other ArcGIS Server tools.
Included with the software is a one year support plan that provides users assistance in the installation of the software, minor customization and software updates.
