The TatukGIS Developer Kernel (DK) is a comprehensive GIS development component (SDK) supporting the leading development platforms and enabling custom GIS development for most operating systems. The TatukGIS Editor is a seasoned, ready-to-use, general purpose Windows desktop GIS application that is highly customizable and extendable via its built-in scripting IDE. The Editor is developed and compiled from the DK, so the two products share many features and performance characteristics. The Editor scripting IDE exposes, within the Editor, the DK's full object-oriented API for geospatial development. In many situations, either product could be used to develop essentially the same custom application or solution.
The relative advantages and disadvantages of the Editor versus the DK for custom GIS development are presented in knowledge base item KB10868.
