Download the TatukGIS Editor (TRIAL VERSION)

This desktop GIS Editor supports all of the features of the free TatukGIS Viewer, plus a comprehensive set of features to create, edit, and analyze GIS map files or projects. The Editor opens most GIS/CAD and raster image file types and most ArcView®, ArcExplorer®, and MapInfo Professional® projects and can convert and save data to a choice of common file types. Because all file formats are supported “natively”, with no need to convert to/from any internal format, the TatukGIS Editor is compatible with other GIS software products which an organization may already use.

Besides the reasonable license price, the Editor is intuitive and easy to use, significantly reducing the need for expensive training. The Editor can be learned from the tutorials and help files that are accessible under the program’s Help menu. The user interface is provided with 15 language options.

Although the Editor is most typically used as a stand-alone desktop application, it can also be configured to work with SQL geodatabase layers running on almost any SQL database server product to support multi-user access and editing of the same map files via a network. The Editor presently supports the reading/writing of data to three SQL database layer formats. Support for Oracle Spatial will be added in the future.

The Editor includes advanced functionality to build line and polygon topology and to systematically identify and correct topology errors in vector map data.

A free trial version is available.
Editing Features:

* Edit already existing vector file geometry and save to the SHP, MID/MIF, DXF, GML, DLG, KML, and GPX formats or to three SQL geodatabase formats: i) OPENGIS® Simple Features for SQL Implementation, ii) native TatukGIS SQL binary method, and iii)Geomedia® SQL Server & Access Warehouse.
* Create/edit new shapes or map layers by mouse clicking on the map or by entering/changing x,y coordinate values
* Create new vector shapes by importing x,y coordinates from an outside source
* Snap to the locations of already existing vertices
* Create and edit shapefile attribute information via the data panel
* Export/import vector map attribute data to/from a spreadsheet or database
* Create/edit new shapes by entering distance/bearing measurements, as used with RE parcel records in North America
* Special drawing tools: rectangle, rotated rectangle, quadrilateral, circle, right angle, freehand drawing
* Line smoothing mode using B-Splines
* Special clipboard layer (copy, paste, save, unions, subtractions, etc.)
* Unions and splitting of vector shapes
* Merger of shapefile layers (files)
* Create buffers and convex hulls and use to perform spatial selections
* Export shapefile data to supported vector map formats; Refine the export operation using spatial extent, spatial selection, and/or SQL attribute query
* Vector clipping based on the view extent
* Import/export data between a map layer and GPS devices in the GPX format
* Concurrent multi-user editing of the same file using SQL server based formats
* Build polygon and polyline topology layers and use to systematically identify and correct geometrical errors in vector map data
* Program user interface can be localized to the following languages: English, German, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, Greek, Swedish, Polish, Czech, Hungarian, Russian, Ukrainian, Thai, and Japanese.

Viewing Features:

* Open/read most vector, image, and SQL geodatabase data formats; support is native, with no need to import data into any internal format
* Open the attribute information of any vector map layer as a table in the data panel; perform advanced queries and filters against attribute values
* Use map layers containing multiple file types in the same project
* Open most ESRI ArcView®, ArcExplorer®, and MapInfo Professional® projects as well as TatukGIS project files
* Create or edit TatukGIS project files
* Zoom in/out, pan
* Scale bar and user defined scale for viewing/printing
* Add, remove, and reorder layers in a project; unlimited number of layers
* Alter the appearance (colors, styles, fills, outlines, symbols, transparency, etc.) of vector layers with the use of "style sheets"
* Manipulate pixel layers (brightness, transparency, histograms, etc.)
* Custom render thematic maps based on vector attribute fields, including colored-gradient value themes
* Color render Digital Terrain Model (DTM) data with directional light and shadowing
* Custom label fonts, sizes, colors, positions, etc.
* Custom render map geometry, labels, charts, etc. based on zoom (scale) level
* Use CGM and TrueType symbols for points and lines; CGM, TrueType, and WMF symbols for fills
* URL Hotlink for automatic linking objects to any document referenced with a valid URL (web page, file, even mailto)
* Present data as bar and pie charts
* Spatial querying (by point, line, circle, rectangle, polygon, and custom clipboard layer)
* Advanced attribute data presentation, querying, and selection with the data panel; SQL query builder
* Measurement tools for distance, area, and perimeter
* Print and print preview, print to PDF file
* Copy visible extent of all layers to Windows clipboard using the EMF meta format
* Export to image files: TIFF/GeoTIFF/LZW, JPEG, PNG, BMP, PixelStore, PDF
* "Internet Server Wizard" to easily set up a simple ASP.NET project for web publishing with the TatukGIS Internet Server. This provides an easy and affordable path to web publish any GIS mapping project.
