The Locator buttons (Figure 1) are situated at the top right of ILWIS main window providing access to various location on local disc or remote database. It includes various buttons which can be used to add multiple catalogs, to view contents of the system catalogs, and to access user defined bookmarks.
A brief description of the Locator buttons from left to right:

  • The Bookmark 1 and 2 is used to illustrate the location of the users added bookmarks. Basically, the bookmarks buttons appear after users bookmark a catalog. in this example, we have bookmarked two catalogs named "Bookmark 1" and "Bookmark 2" and the therefore, the names appears as buttons in the locator buttons.
