TatukGIS Developer Kernel 10.2
TatukGIS has released the latest major new version of its royalty-free GIS Developer Kernel (DK) component for the Embarcadero Delphi/C++Builder, Microsoft .NET WinForms/WPF, and Microsoft ActiveX/OCX development platforms, introducing important new features and improvements:
Developer Kernel Compact Framework Edition 10
TatukGIS is working on a version 10 release of the DK-CF edition (for developing mobile GIS applications for the Windows Mobile or Compact Edition OS).
TatukGIS Editor 3.5
Recently added features include opening Web Map Tile services, generating Web Map Tiles, contour line generation from a DTM, support for the IBM DB2 and Informix spatial server databases, and other new features and improvements from the DK 10 upgrade.
A series of recently published blogs, Seven scripts in seven days, demonstrates use of the Editor’s built-in scripting features to perform useful tasks such as generate contour lines from a DTM, perform triangulation on a layer, implement live GPS, generate Web Map Tiles, interoperate with Google Maps and Bing Maps, export a map to Google Earth…
The upcoming Editor version 4 will add image and vector layer rectification, georeferencing, and mosaicing features. The TatukGIS Aerial Imagery Corrector (AIC) product will be discontinued when the Editor 4 is released. AIC customers will have an opportunity to upgrade to the Editor.
IBM DB2 and Informix Spatial databases
The TatukGIS DK Enterprise edition, GIS Editor, and free GIS Viewer products now directly support (read/write) the IBM DB2 Spatial Extender and IBM Informix Spatial DataBlade databases. With the addition of the IBM spatial formats, TatukGIS products now support (free of any middleware) all leading advanced spatial databases.
3rd Party Products
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.
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.
