The TatukGIS Editor is a professional-level, desktop GIS mapping and data editing application designed for easy learning and use. The default user interface intuitively presents features most used and valued by most GIS users, while remaining free of excessive menu clutter. Specialized or custom features are supported via a built-in scripting environment with object API. Customization scripts can be deployed to other users. Default user interface features include:
Open and view a wide range of vector, image, grid, and SQL geodatabase data types, including advanced spatial server databases. All format support is “native”, without any import procedure or format conversion. WMS, WFS, and WMTS services may be opened from the web as map layers. Comprehensive visual layer property, legend, and scale controls provide for deep customization of the map appearance, including colors, labels, fills, line styles, sybology, thematic presentation, sublayers and layer hierarchies… Attribute data grid table includes advanced query and selection tools.
3D vector rendering, DTM model presentation, draping of raster and vector layers over DTM models, flood simulation, light & shadow control, camera/scene control, volumetric line and points rendering, Z & M value settings, 3D objects texturing...
Create, edit, translate, export... map layers or specified data from a layer to a number of vector, image, grid, and SQL geodatabase formats, including advanced spatial server databases (Oracle Spatial, MSSQL Spatial, ArcSDE, PostGIS....). A topology builder/corrector systematically clears geometry related errors (overlapping polygons, holes between polygons, missed line intersections, dangling nodes...) from vector line and polygon layers.
State-of-the-art support for coordinate systems reflecting EPSG codes and OGC WKT definitions, with 3,000 pre-defined coordinate systems (including all U.S. State Planes), user-defined coordinate systems, and on-the-fly vector/raster map layer reprojection and rotation.
Rectify distortions from old vector maps, CAD drawings, and aerial images and georeference to a coordinate system. Rectification is performed on-the-fly with the result instantaneously visible. A second map window enables use of a reference layer.
Built-in scripting IDE for writing and debugging code can be used to modify the Editor, including full menu redesign, custom dialog boxes, etc., or to extend the Editor with additional features. The scripting engine exposes (inside the Editor) the full power of the TatukGIS Developer Kernel object API to fulfill the requirements of almost any kind of GIS application. Scripted customizations or new features can be deployed to other users. Sophisticated end-user applications can be developed and deployed using the Editor run-time environment.
Support for most database engines (Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, IBM DB2, IBM Informix, Interbase, Firebird, Sybase, PostgreSQL, SQLite, MSJET...) and compatible geodatabase layer types offers a wide-open choice for enterprise-level data storage. Vector layers can be dynamically "joined" to external databases.
The free TatukGIS Viewer is a slimmed down version of the Editor, without data editing, 3D viewing, layer rectification, and scripting/customization features.
