NavTable - gvSIG extension

Select language: [English] [Español]

is a gvSIG's extension to view in a agile way the records of vectorial geographical information layers. Its main characteristic is that allows to see the element's attributes one by one and in vertical direction. Some of its features are: edit alphanumeric values and navigate among the elements of an information layer.

NavTable is a simple tool that was thought to get a more comfortable user experience in GIS. In spite of beeing a very recent development it is very useful in order to work with data everyday.

The extension NavTable has been developed by the Cartography Engineering Laboratory of University of A Coruña, Cartolab and it's currently maintained by CartoLab and iCarto. It has been released under the terms of the version 3 of the GNU General Public License. We encourage to any user to let us know any suggest, comment, bug reports, etc...
