- Editor Software


TatukGIS Editor (EDT) & TatukGIS Free Viewer (VWR): The TatukGIS Editor is a professional-level, desktop GIS mapping and data editing application designed to be easily learned and used. The default user interface intuitively presents features most used and valued by most GIS users, while remaining free of excessive menu clutter. Specialized or custom features are supported via a built-in scripting environment with object API. Customization scripts, or even complete new run-time applications, can be deployed to other users.

The default user interface includes:

Vector, image, grid, and SQL geodatabase data types, including advanced spatial databases (Microsoft SQL Spatial, Oracle Spatial, ESRI ArcSDE, PostGIS...) are supported “natively”, without import or format conversion. WMS, WFS, and WMTS services may be opened from the web as a layer in a map project. Comprehensive visual layer property, legend, and scale controls provide for deep customization of the appearance of each map layer, including labels, fills, line styles, sybology, thematic mapping, layer hierarchies… Other features include attribute data grid table and advanced selection and query tools.

3D Viewing
3D vector rendering, DTM model presentation, draping of raster and vector layers over DTM models, flood simulation, light & shadow control, camera/scene control, volumetric line rendering...

Create, edit, translate, export... map layers or specified data from a layer to a number of vector, image, grid, and SQL geodatabase formats, including advanced spatial databases (Oracle Spatial, MSSQL Spatial, ArcSDE, PostGIS....). A topology builder/corrector systematically clears geometry related errors (overlapping polygons, holes between polygons, missed line intersections, dangling nodes...) from vector line and polygon layers.

Coordinate systems
State-of-the-art support for coordinate systems reflecting EPSG codes and OGC WKT definitions, with 3,000 pre-defined coordinate systems (including all U.S. State Planes), user-defined coordinate systems, and on-the-fly vector/raster map layer reprojection and rotation.

Rectify distortions from old vector maps, CAD drawings, and aerial images and georeference to a coordinate system. Rectification is performed on-the-fly with the result instantaneously visible. A second map window enables use of a reference layer.

Powerful built-in scripting IDE for writing and debugging code can be used to modify the Editor, including full menu redesign, custom dialog boxes, etc., or to extend the Editor with additional features. The scripting engine exposes (inside the Editor) the full power of the TatukGIS Developer Kernel object API to fulfill the requirements of almost any kind of GIS application. Scripted customizations or new features can be deployed to other users. Sophisticated end-user applications can be developed and deployed using the Editor run-time environment.

Support for most database engines (Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, IBM DB2, IBM Informix, Interbase, Firebird, Sybase, PostgreSQL, SQLite, MSJET...) and most SQL/spatial database map layer formats, offer a wide-open choice for enterprise-level data storage. Vector layers can also be dynamically 'joined' to external databases.

The free TatukGIS Viewer is a slimmed down version of the Editor, without data editing, 3D viewing, layer rectification, and scripting/customization features.

Available Editions

Because the free TatukGIS Viewer is a slimmed down version of the TatukGIS Editor, the Editor and Viewer are regarded as editions of the same product.

TatukGIS Editor
The TatukGIS Editor is a programmable, general purpose desktop GIS mapping and data editing application featuring support for dozens of vector, image, grid, and SQL database formats, on-the-fly map reprojection with nearly 3,000 pre-defined coordinate systems, 3D map display, compatibility with leading database engines, GPS connectivity, etc. The Editor can save data to a number of vector, image, grid, and SQL database formats including SHP, TAB, DXF, GML, KML, JSON, GeoTIFF, JPEG, PNG, BMP, PixelStore, PostGIS, Microsoft Spatial, Oracle Spatial, ESRI PGDB, MapInfo SpatialWare, Geomedia, SQLite Spatial...).

Built-in Pascal/Basic scripting tools expose (within the Editor) the full ojbect API of the TatukGIS Developer Kernel. In this way, the Editor can be customized or extended to fulfill the requirements of just about any kind of GIS application.

A full feature list is provided in the Feature Matrix.

TatukGIS Free Viewer
Perhaps the world's best free GIS Viewer, the TatukGIS Viewer supports all the features of the TatukGIS Editor except:

  • Creation, editing, export, or saving data.
  • Customization with the use of scripts. The free Viewer cannot be modified in any way.
  • 3D map display.
