The TatukGIS Editor is a professional, general purpose desktop GIS editor and mapping application with built-in scripting environment for customization and feature extensions. In addition to all features of the free TatukGIS Viewer product, the Editor offers the following.

Data Editing

Creates, edits, saves (without format conversion), and exports geospatial data to 35+ vector, image, grid, and database layer formats. Detailed, update-to-date information about support for each data format is presented in the documentation wiki.

Features include editing map geometry and attribute data, special drawing tools, unions and splitting, topological operations, simplification and smoothing, merging, data table import, database joining, format translation, and layer statistics. Topology corrector tool tests for and systematically clears geometry errors from vector layers, including overlapping polygons, holes between polygons, missed line intersections, and dangling nodes.

Raster Analysis

Vector-to-grid interpolation algorithms, heatmaps, AGL visibility analysis, Fresnel zone analysis, contouring, slope analysis, terrain profiles, filters, per-pixel access for analysis and algebra, spatial querying, etc. A series of geoprocessing operations to perform complex analyses may be set up as a pipeline. Support for GPU enhanced computation is available for the most computationally demanding operations.

3D Visualization

3D vector rendering, DTM model presentation, raster and vector layer draping over DTM, flood simulation, light and shadow control, camera/scene control, volumetric line and points rendering, Z & M value settings, and 3D objects texturing.


Rectifies distortions from aerial images, old vector maps, or CAD drawings and georeferences the layer to a coordinate system. Rectification is performed on-the-fly with instantaneously visible result.


Built-in scripting IDE for writing and debugging code can be used to modify (full menu redesign, custom dialog boxes, etc.) or extend the Editor with additional features. The scripting engine furthermore exposes, inside the Editor, the full TatukGIS Developer Kernel API with its hundreds of classes and thousands of methods and properties designed for custom GIS development. Scripted plug-ins are easily deployed to other Editor users.


Supports most database engines - Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, IBM DB2, IBM Informix, Interbase, Firebird, Sybase, Advantage, PostgreSQL, SQLite, and MSJET - and compatible database layers. Support for advanced spatial databases includes creating new database tables, using spatial operators for server-side spatial queries, utilizing server-side spatial indexes for fast queries, and SQL database layer connection wizard.

Available in 32 and 64 bit versions, the GIS Editor is developed from the TatukGIS Developer Kernel (SDK) and can be used to evaluate the Developer Kernel's performance and support for many features and data formats.
