KB10456 - Client-server and web GIS development options.

  1. TatukGIS DK for ASP.NET edition. With its managed code ASP.NET (Core & Web Forms) control supporting the full TatukGIS object-oriented API and geospatial functionality, the DK ASP.NET edition is designed for web application development. Features include optimized performance for serving bitmap images, pure .NET code, HTML5 support for smooth, multi-touch compatibility across web browsers (Edge, Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, etc.) and platforms (Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, Linux, etc.), and rich client-side map editing and drawing that can be customized using the included JavaScript API. Developed web GIS applications may be hosted on Windows, Linux, and macOS servers.
  2. TatukGIS DK for Delphi edition. The DK Delphi may be used to develop a client-server or web-server application. A DK Delphi developer can use the Delphi source code to customize the bitmap serving procedure to optimize performance for a web server environment.
  3. TatukGIS DK .NET, DK Java, and DK ActiveX editions. These are appropriate for developing client-server applications. While these editions can also be used to develop a web bitmap image server, they are not designed for this purpose - they lack of the ASP.NET control, HTML5 support, JavaScript API, and are not optimized for best performance with serving bitmap images.
  4. The customizable TatukGIS Editor can be used as a thick client in web or client-server configurations, possibly featuring DK based software running on the server side. One possibility is the Editor can consume map layers and data streamed from remote sources, such as via the internet, using OGC WMS, WFS, TMS, and WMTS protocols or web tiles. (The same is true with any DK developed application.)
