TatukGIS Compact Framework SDK for Mobile GIS App Development

Bangalore: TatukGIS announces the version 10 upgrade of its Developer Kernel Compact Framework edition (DK.CF) for mobile GIS application development for the Windows Mobile and CE operating systems (WinCE, PocketPC, Windows Mobile 5.0, 6.x, Windows Embedded Handheld 6.x). This upgrade elevates the DK.CF functionality to the level of the other Developer Kernel product editions that are for desktop application development.



Despite the popularity of alternative mobile operations systems for retail applications, Windows Mobile and CE are still the leading operating systems for rugged handheld computing devices often used for enterprise-level, industrial type mobile GIS solutions in industries such as forestry and land management, mining, utilities, oil and gas, etc. Examples of such rugged handheld Windows Mobile and CE computing devices are the products produced by Juniper Systems.



The DK.CF is a pure .NET SDK supporting Compact Framework version 3.5. As a pure .NET component, the DK.CF is processor independent, meaning that a DK.CF application can run on any Compact Framework compatible processor without need for recompilation. Because the DK.CF shares the same object API as the pure .NET WinForms edition of the TatukGIS Developer Kernel, porting a DK.NET developed desktop application to a DK.CF based mobile application can be as easy as copying the source code to the DK.CF and recompiling.



Though some mobile computing devices are CPU limited, performance of a DK-CF developed application need not be limited by data size. If necessary, large data sets can be read from external storage such as a removable SD card. SQL based storage of vector and image layers are also an option (using the SQLite database).
