Editor / Viewer Licensing
The full TatukGIS license agreement is available to download as PDF.
A TatukGIS Editor license grants one person a perpetual right to use the product on one computer, physical or virtual. A registered licensed user may additionally install and use the Editor product on a second computer (typically a laptop for travel or home computer) under the same license, provided that i) the user is individually registered to the license in the TatukGIS system, ii) the Editor is used only by the same registered user on both computers, and iii) the Editor is never used on both computers at the same time.
Concurrent-user licensing, for deployment of the TatukGIS Editor to a shared environment such as a terminal server configuration, is also available. The price for one concurrent-user license is three times the price of one per-user license. Concurrent-user licensing requires the customer to use a reliable procedure (such as Microsoft or Citrix terminal server configuration) to ensure the number of users at any time never exceeds the number of concurrent-user licenses purchased.
Customization scripts (i.e., plug-ins) created with the Editor may be deployed to and used by other Editor licensed users. Run-time licensing, to create a unique software product built on top of the Editor, can be negotiated on a case-by-case basis.
Editor license maintenance is on an annual subscription basis. Each license purchase includes 12 months of support and upgrades maintenance. Renewal of maintenance for each subsequent 12-month period is optional and costs 40% of the current price of a new license (if purchased by the scheduled maintenance expiration date). Maintenance includes download access to and rights to use each new product version (upgrades and updates), access to TatukGIS email technical support, and write-access to the Question & Answer resource.
The TatukGIS Viewer is licensed as freeware and may be used for private and commercial proposes. The Viewer may be redistributed to others pursuant to TatukGIS guidelines. The Viewer may not be altered or customized in any way. As a free product, the GIS viewer is not supported (though thoughtful feedback is welcome).
