New York City Property Atlas based on the TatukGIS DK

April 07, 2003

This application created from the TatukGIS Developer Kernel was recently released by CommunityCartography (www.ComCarto.com). By basing the application on the TatukGIS DK toolkit, versus competing GIS development products, this client achieved royalty-free distribution, user simplicity, and superior speed and stability.

The New York City Property Atlas by CommunityCartography:

A thin-client map data viewer offering superior performance and value!

  • No purchase of ArcView, ArcMap or MapInfo required
  • Superior speed and stability
  • Uses industry standard shapefiles, *.dbf, and MS Access *.mdb files
  • Locates properties by street address or tax block/lot
  • Auto-zooms to tax parcels
  • Full reporting of property RPAD data attributes
  • Subway lines and ridership statistics included
  • Fast, and simple to use!




The Property Atlas is the perfect solution for users who want to distribute their NYC data to a wide community of users, without having to invest in multiple licenses of full-scale GIS applications. Leverage the value of your GIS databases by deploying this thin-client application as an enterprise viewer-solution. You can install it as multiple stand-alone seats, or access a central data-depot on a main server. Link it to any SQL compliant relational database (Oracle, SQLServer, MySQL). We would be happy to add custom features or databases to the viewer at your request!


The property locator engine is ComCarto's proprietary SQL implementation of the New York City Dept. of City Planning GeoSupport system that NYC agency employees have used for years. Now it is available for use, with mapping support, on your laptop computer!
