The TatukGIS Developer Kernel (DK) Training Kits, created by a TatukGIS value-added partner who has been successfully developing GIS solutions with the DK product since 2003, are designed to enable developers and organizations to reduce the DK learning curve and quickly begin creating powerful DK based applications by tapping into the knowledge of a highly experienced DK developer and customer. The Training Kits illustrate how to quickly create a fully functioning GIS viewer/editor application with features including create new vector layers, select features by location, create in-memory layers, edit shapes, geoprocessing, edit attributes, advanced feature symbolization, edit enterprise GIS database layers, GPS, address matching, routing, and more!!
The DK Training Kits include a detailed training manual containing over 100 pages and 16 chapters of hands-on instructional material illustrating step-by-step how to set-up and use the DK to create 12 focused applications, the source code to each example application, sample data, and videos illustrating how to use most of the applications.
The DK Training Kits reflect the DK version 10. The DK.NET and DK-ActiveX source code samples are written in Visual Basic .NET 2005 and DK-VCL source code samples are written in Delphi.
The following is a chapter index from the manual. The topics represent a broad range of the Developer Kernel’s functionality.
LESSON 1. CREATING A NEW .NET SOLUTION THAT USES THE TATUKGIS DK CONTROLS, .TTKGP PROJECT FILES, AND ADDING/REMOVING LAYERS FROM THE DISPLAY
LESSON 2. CHANGING THE MAP EXTENT, ZOOMING, AND SETTING THE SCALE
LESSON 3. SELECTING FEATURES: SELECT BY ATTRIBUTES, ZOOM TO SELECTION, SELECT BY LOCATION, AND MANUAL SELECTION. IN-MEMORY LAYERS AND THE TGIS_LAYERVECTOR.LOOP METHOD ARE INTRODUCED
LESSON 4. USING THE TGIS_EDITOR OBJECT TO CREATE NEW SHAPES, SAVE AND ABORT EDIT OPERATIONS, EDIT VERTICES, UNDO/REDO, DELETE LAST SHAPE, ADD PARTS, DELETE PARTS, AND DELETE VERTICES
LESSON 5. CREATING NEW VECTOR LAYERS, EDITING SHAPES WITH CODE(AS OPPOSED TO USING THE TGIS_EDITOR OBJECT), BUFFERING SHAPES, CREATING AN 'IN-MEMORY' LAYER, AND EXPORTING VECTOR LAYERS
LESSON 6. GEOPROCESSING: SPLITTING SHAPES, UNIONING SHAPES, SUBTRACTING SHAPES, CLIPPING SHAPES, MERGING VECTOR LAYERS, AND GENERATING RANDOM POINTS
LESSON 7. ATTRIBUTING FEATURES, THE TGIS_CONTROLATTRIBUTES OBJECT, AND THE TGIS_DATASET
