Web tileset, shapefile polygons, and KML lines

Geospatial data in many file formats can be viewed and used directly in TNTgis software without requiring import. Dozens of raster and geometric file formats can be used in their native form while fully supporting image enhancements and the creation of new attribute information and display styles. You can also manually link to, import from, or export to an even wider array of geospatial data, web tileset, and database formats. The Display process also allows you to render views directly to several popular image formats and to standard web tilesets. Styled geometric data in view also can be rendered to tilesets and KML files, and complex map layouts to PDF files for easy distribution of digital maps.

Geodata Formats Highlights

  • Display, enhance, and use images in JP2/GeoJP2, TIFF/GeoTIFF, JPEG, PNG, NetCDF, NITF, ERDAS Imagine, PCI, and other formats
  • Display, enhance, and use elevation data in ArcGrid format
  • Display, attribute, and style map data in shapefile, ESRI File Geodatabase, AutoCAD DWG/DXF, Geomedia MDB, KML and other formats
  • Use standard web tilesets as reference images
  • Display, classify, and process LIDAR point data in the standard LAS format
  • Link files automatically store supporting data such as styles, histograms, pyramid tiers, and spatial indexes

Import or link to geospatial data and database information
