TatukGIS Viewer features, many
of which are found in no other free viewer:
- Export and save georeferenced
image files of all visible layers, with a choice of full or
visible extent. Choose the resolution of the export from best
(matching the resolution of loaded images), document (300 dpi),
web (96 dpi) or custom settings.
- Save project files, including
pointers to all loaded files. Layer property settings may also
be saved for painting to other layers that you wish to have
similar display characteristics.
- Open/read data in the following
- Raster image: TIFF/GeoTIFF,
ECW, MrSID, JPEG2000, JPEG, IMG, BMP, BIL/SPOT, PNG, CADRG,
- Vector: SHP, E00, MIF/MID,
TAB, DXF, DGN, TIGER, GML, VPF, GDF, DLG, SDTS, Geomedia®
SQL Server & Access Warehouses, SQL layers with OPENGIS®
- DTM formats: ASCII GRID,
FLOAT GRID, BT, DTED, and ADF
- Georeferenced Images: GeoTIFF,
World File, and TAB based
- All formats supported natively,
with no importing of data to any internal format
- Open data in many different
formats in the same project, with no need for format conversion
- Open most ESRI ArcView®, ArcExplorer®,
or MapInfo Professional® projects as well as TatukGIS project
- Zoom in/out, pan
- User defined scale for viewing/printing
- Very fast with huge data sets
(handles SHP files up to 2 gigabytes!)
- R-tree spatial indexing
- Layer control to add, remove,
and reorder layers in a project
- Alter the appearance (colors,
styles, fills, outlines, symbols, transparency, etc.) of vector
- Use GCM, WMF, and TrueType symbols
to represent points, lines, polygon fills and perimeters
- Manipulate pixel layers, including
transparency, histogram, brightness, color enhancing, etc.
- Render custom thematic maps
based on vector attribute information, including colored-gradient
- Present data as bar and pie
- Spatial queries (by point, line,
circle, rectangle, polygon, and custom clipboard layer)
- Attribute queries with SQL Builder
- Measurement of distances, areas,
- Custom render label appearances
and positions, multi-field labeling
- URL Hotlink for automatic linking
objects to any document referenced with a valid URL (web page,
file, even mailto)
- Map hints to automatically display
information about any feature under the cursor
- Data table to present attribute
data in table form
- Print and print preview, print
to PDF file
- Copy visible extent of all layers
to Windows clipboard using the EMF meta format
- Export any map view to image
files: TIFF/GeoTIFF (w/ LZW), JPEG, PNG, PixelStore
- Mosaic multiple already georeferenced
images into a single exported image file
- Very small footprint – program
is only approx. 2.5 Mb (excluding the 5 Mb of tutorials/help
files with images)
- The Viewer includes the "Internet
Server Wizard" to easily set up a simple ASP.NET project
for web publishing with the TatukGIS Internet Server. Click
here to review on-line a sample project that was prepared
with the free Viewer and web published with the IS LITE.
- Program user interface is customizable
to the following languages: English, German, Spanish, Portuguese,
French, Italian, Greek, Swedish, Polish, Czech, Russian, Ukrainian,
Besides just opening and viewing
files, the Viewer supports an extensive list of features including
layer control, thematic mapping, spatial and attribute querying,
custom labeling, on map measurements, PDF export and much more.
The user interface is available in 13 languages.
Because the Viewer is compiled
from the TatukGIS Developer Kernel toolkit, it provides an easy
way to evaluate the TatukGIS technology and support for various
data formats and common GIS functionality. The free Viewer can
be used to generate TatukGIS project files that are compatible
with any TatukGIS product or custom application created from the
TatukGIS DK toolkit. The Viewer can generate simple ASP.NET projects
for web publishing with the TatukGIS Internet Server.
The TatukGIS Editor product
extends the free Viewer by adding an extensive set of GIS editing
