CsGIS SDK is a high performance geospatial data visualization software development kit designed for customizable use in embedded and real-time systems. CsGIS SDK focuses on 2D and 3D visualization for situational awareness and command control applications. It is fully optimized for low profile hardware and different types of operating systems.

CsGIS SDK is an object-oriented class library and has a plug-in based software architecture designed for developers. Hence, adding, removing or changing features do not require any changes in source code. It is very easy to expand your system by implementing new custom plug-ins. CsGIS SDK has been designed to have no dependency on specific platforms which allows CsGIS to be rapidly ported to a wide range of platforms.
CsGIS SDK is a completely independent windowing system, which makes it easy for users to add their own window-specific libraries and applications. CsGIS SDK can be easily integrated with other windowing toolkits, such as Qt, wxWidget, MFC etc.
