So far it's one of the best (if not the best) CAD / GIS data viewers I've seen, free and practical. Tatuk is a product line that born in Poland, just a few days ago the 2 version of tatukGIS Viewer was announced.
The other viewers
If we evaluate the free programs of other brands, provided to see data we will find at least one of the following aspects:
- Do not open projects such as: ArcView 3x apr, ArcGIS mxd
- The MapInfo map.
- Do not load microsoft V8 files
- No kml file formats
- They display some formats only by importing them
- You can not save layer settings as styles
- Can not save as project
What data does TatukGIS Viewer read
When you see the functionality and ability to interact with other formats, you can notice that the viewer is almost TatukGIS Editor, without the capabilities of editing, analysis and some reading formats such as FME and OGR. Maybe that's why it goes beyond what the viewers of other programs that specialize almost in their own formats and with a focus of just View and print.

What attractive features does it have
Very clean interface, With side panels to the right in the style manifold which includes selected object properties, project layers and a minimap; below you can load the attribute tables into attractive tabs. All can be dragged as floating windows or change places very freely.
Loading layers. The layers are loaded, it recognizes in a wonderful way the projection of many CAD / GIS formats, and reprojecta to the flight in the projection of the viewer. Supports scales of visualization, transparency, hierarchy, caching and rendering. They can also make groups of layers.
Styles to layers. You can apply themes to the layers, for line type, fill, fill pattern, bar graphics, pastel, etc. These layer properties can be saved with an .ini extension to apply it to others.
Tags. In the layer properties you can apply labels with very attractive styles that can be static or dynamic to the display so that they move so that while the layer is visible they can be seen. It includes HTML rendering.
Help. Allows you to choose an attribute of the table that is displayed when you hover over the object (hints) and also displays hyperlinks if they exist in the tabular data.
Medicion. It has measurement tools (without snap) of rectangles, circle, path, polygon, orthogonal rectangle. By right clicking, you can copy the coordinate to the paper holder.
Language and style. With a simple click you can choose the language among which is Spanish, and also the interface ethyl.
Print. It has a practical functionality to print, even to export to pdf.
Speed. All this does, with a very surprising agility, I have loaded 14 orthophotos ecw, 16 maps dgn, connected to an ArcView apr with 11 layers and from an Acer Aspire One ... panea very well.
Tabular data. It is very interesting to display tables, style UDig handles tabs that are added with a simple click from the layers of the project. The spatial properties of the objects are displayed as area and length, one of the interesting aspects is that the objects can be touched individually and choose the option that is not visible although the layer is. There are also a series of filtering processes, individual and group selection.
Save project. The project can be saved, in the style of an mxd / apr with extension .ttkgp to be able to open it again, however simple it may seem, it can be deployed by TatukGIS Inernet Server as an ASP.NET service.
It definitely replaces what any free viewer of brand programs does, at a very efficient deployment speed. Of the best, the interaction with formats, standards and projects of popularized programs (ESRI, OpenGIS, Bentley, MapInfo, Google Earth). Not bad to be free.
