The main map window, Legend panel and mini-map panel are visible. The open project is composed of multiple layers of municipal map data, including property parcel maps, municipal zoning classifications, flood zones, water bodies, roads and streets, and other data. The map layers are thematically optimized for analysis and presentation of relevant information. A single project can involve map layers in many different file types and 100's of map layers. Each data type is handled natively, without any need for any import operation or format conversion.


A MrSid image opened as a map layer. The TatukGIS Editor and free Viewer support advanced image compression formats such as MrSID, ECW, and JPEG2000, dozens of known variations of the TIFF format, and SQL based raster formats such as Oracle GeoRaster, ESRI ArcSDE Raster, and TatukGIS Pixelstore.



An ESRI ArcSDE map layer opened in Editor. The SQL layer connection wizard makes it simple to set up the connection to most advanced spatial database layers, such as ArcSDE, Microsoft Spatial, Oracle Spatial, PostGIS, MapInfo SpatialWare, IBM DB2 Spatial Extender....



A street map layer in the Microsoft Spatial database format opened from a remote server. The Editor supports the import, export, editing of MSSQL Spatial layers as well as server-side spatial query operators and spatial indexing.



A custom form created within the Editor using Scripter Studio. The Basic & Pascal scripting IDE enables power users to customize the program user interface, add routines, implement advanced or& specialized functionality, or even develop a whole new product on top the Editor. The scripting IDE exposes (within the Editor) the full object API of the TatukGIS Developer Kernel.



The Editor Tile Generator script is used to generate projects for display in Google Maps or Bing Maps. The Editor contains dozens of scripts, each providing a specialized feature or functionality, or offering just an example of how scripting can be used. Implementation of custom features with use of scripts avoids menu clutter and allows for easy customization and feature extensions.



The TatukGIS Editor rectification features can be used to rectify and georeference aerial images and vector maps to any of 3,000 pre-defined coordinate systems. In the upper image, a CAD drawing in an unknown coordinate system (left map window) will be rectified to the WGS 84 World Mercator (epsg:3395) coordinate system using MapQuest OpenStreetMaps (opened from the web) as a reference layer (right map window).

The lower image presents the rectified result, together with the MapQuest layer. The CAD drawing has been rotated, scaled, and warped to match the coordinate system, and now aligns closely with the MapQuest layer.
