Editor / Viewer Screenshots

The main map window, Legend panel, and Selected 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 to present relevant information for analysis. A single project can involve map layers in many different formats and 100's of map layers. Each data type is handled natively, without any import operation or format conversion.

A MrSid image is opened as a map layer. The TatukGIS Editor and free Viewer support advanced image compression formats such as MrSID, ECW, and JPEG2000, dozens of TIFF format variations, 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 a connection to most SQL database layer types, including advanced spatial databases such as Oracle Spatial, PostGIS, MSSQL Spatial, ArcSDE, and most others.

A street map layer in the MSSQL Spatial database format opened from a remote server. The Editor supports importing, exporting, and editing 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 and 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 with its hundreds of classes and thousands of methods and properties.

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 to do something. Offering custom features and feature extensions as optional scripts avoids menu clutter while enabling users to implement specifically the customizations and additional features they really want.

The TatukGIS Editor rectification features can be used to rectify and georeference aerial images and vector maps to any of 5,000+ 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 (streamed from the web) as a reference layer (right map window).

(This example could have used the TatukGIS hosted OpenStreetMap web tiles server as the reference layer!)

In the lower image is the rectified result opened on top the MapQuest layer. The CAD drawing has been successfully rotated, scaled, and warped to match the coordinate system, and now aligns closely with the MapQuest layer.
