User-friendly Desktop Internet GIS (uDig)¶
User-friendly Desktop Internet GIS (uDig) is an open source spatial data viewer/editor, with special emphasis on the OpenGIS standards for internet GIS, the Web Map Server (WMS) and Web Feature Server (WFS) standards.
- User-friendly, providing a familiar graphical environment for GIS users;
- Desktop located, running natively on Windows, Mac OS/X and Linux;
- Internet oriented, consuming standard and de facto geospatial web services; and,
- GIS ready, providing the framework on which complex analytical capabilities can be built, and gradually subsuming those capabilities into the main application.
For developers uDig provides a common Java platform for building spatial applications with open source components. The website provides series of clear tutorials covering making a simple tool through to releasing your own custom application.
- Desktop Client with Drag and Drop integration for File explorer and Web Browser
- Integrate with your existing infrastructure: ArcSDE, Oracle, DB2 and more
- Work with local files: Shapefile, jpeg, png, tiff and more.
- Work with advanced spatial raster formats: ECW, MrSID, JPEG 2000
- Support for compliant Web Map Servers (GeoServer, MapServer tested)
- Integrated Web experience with an embedded browser that recognises OGC web services and smoothly adds links to the onscreen map
- Style Layer Descriptor control of rendering allowing you to publish your Map using the same settings in uDig as with popular Web Map Servers
- Deep integration of standards allowing the application to swap between the appropriate service as required for display, interaction and editing
- Printing and PDF Generation
