Two 3rd party training kits for the TatukGIS Editor are designed to help users, developers, and organizations substantially reduce the learning curve to more quickly become productive with use of the Editor product.

The TatukGIS Editor Training Kit focuses on the default user interface features. It includes a detailed training manual containing over 70 pages of hands-on instructional material covering 10 chapters illustrating, step-by-step, how to use almost all aspects of the Editor.

The TatukGIS Editor Customization Training Kit focuses on use the built-in scripting features and object API to customize the default user interface, implement new features, and create custom applications. It includes a detailed training manual containing 100+ pages of hands-on instructional material with 17 chapters illustrating, step-by-step, how to set-up and use the Editor to create 12 focused applications, each with Pascal and Basic source code, sample data, and videos.

The chapter indexes from the training manuals of each kit present a summary of the covered topics.
