The TatukGIS Editor supports all of the features of the free TatukGIS Viewer, plus an extensive set of features to create, edit, export, translate, and analyze GIS map files and projects. The Editor opens most GIS/CAD and raster image file types and most ArcView®, ArcExplorer®, and MapInfo Professional® projects. It supports the editing and saving of vector map geometry and attribute data to a number of shapefile and SQL database file types. The support for all file formats is ‘native’, which means that there is no need to convert to/from any internal format. This makes the Editor highly compatible with other GIS software products which an organization may be using.
The Editor can be used as a stand-alone desktop application or in a client-server or web server configuration. It can be connected to the following types of SQL database map layers: Oracle Spatial/Locator®, ESRI ArcSDE and Personal Geodatabase, Geomedia® (SQL Server and Access Warehouse), OpenGIS® Simple Features Specification for SQL, and TatukGIS binary. The Editor also supports the opening of WMS (Web Map Service) layers.
The Editor includes advanced functionality to build line and polygon topology to systematically identify and correct topology errors – such as polygon holes or overlaps, dangling line nodes, unconnected line intersections, etc. - from shapefile map layers.
Besides the reasonable license price, the TatukGIS Editor is intuitive to learn and use, which can significantly reduce user training costs. The Editor can be learned from the tutorials and help files which are accessible under the program’s Help menu. The user interface is provided in 16 languages
