FGIS: Forestry GIS plugin to the TatukGIS Editor

Forestry GIS (FGIS) is now available as a $49 plug-in to the TatukGIS Editor. FGIS extends the Editor with a simple, easy-to-use, and customizable suite of tools aimed at making forestry and land management professionals' jobs easier. The FGIS plug-in was developed using the Editor’s built-in scripting features and is an excellent example of the use of scripts to add custom features or extensions for distribution to other Editor users.

Arc2TatukGIS (Free)

The Arc2TatukGIS plug-in to ArcGIS has been updated to support ArcGIS v.10 v.10 (previous support was for ArcGIS v.9). Arc2TatukGIS enables export from ArcGIS/ArcMap to a TatukGIS map project, for ready use with TatukGIS products.

Natural Earth Data Quick Start (Free)

Natural Earth Data (a public domain world map dataset composed of SHP files and georeferenced TIFF raster layers) is now available as two ready-to-use TatukGIS projects (datasets with the TTKGP project files). These are perfect for quick-start base maps in TatukGIS projects.

TatukGIS Editor Training Kit

The $149 TatukGIS Editor Training Kit has been released, with a focus on the features of the product's default user interface. This compliments the previously released Editor Customization Training Kit which teaches how to use the Editor's built-in scripting tools to implement new features and customizations.
