  • 11.12.2012 Into GIS Server for Linux the means of data protection are embedded
    KB "Panorama" has developed Panorama GIS Server for Linux version 4.2.1. The new version of the GIS Server for Linux completely corresponds to the version of GIS Server for Windows that provides their joint application. Panorama GIS Server for Linux can be ported to a variety of 32-bit and 64-bit UNIX-like operating systems, such as: Ubuntu, Fedora, MCBC, AltLinux, Debian, Mandriva, AspLinux, OpenSuse, Solaris. Present version has improved data protection opened from the GIS Server. All data that are stored on the client computer in a cache for work acceleration always are encrypted by 256-bit key formed from the server key and the client's key. The new algorithm of digest-authorisation of the data is applied to prevent interception of the user's password at connection to the GIS Server. There is added the ability to work off-line with data from the cache at loss of connection with GIS Server. At absence (short-term loss) of connection with the GIS Server the data access automatically goes into the mode "Read only, Prevent printing Prevent copying". When communication is restored, access is automatically changed to the one that is set for the user on the GIS Server, and automatic replication of data in the cache regarding the changed data is carried out. GIS Server Administrator can prohibit work offline with data. If the GIS Server Administrator cancels access to data for a given group of users, then maps on respective clients will be automatically closed with deleting the data from the cache. If GIS Server Administrator has prohibited offline work with the data, then client programs of versions lower than 11.10.3 that do not support encryption, can open the data on the GIS Server. GIS "Panorama 11", Panorama-editor, GIS Navigator 2011, GIS-viewer and other programs developed in the environment of GIS ToolKit of version 11, GIS constructor for Qt Designer 11 versions and later can be clients. Connection with the server is established via protocol TCP/IP. The server provides remote access to vector maps, rasters and matrixes. Placing the data on the server provides protection of data against illegal copying and change. The new version of the program is available for download on the Download page.

In the new version there are added means of entering metadata under standards of ISO 19115:2003, Geographic information - Metadata and ISO/TS 19139, Geographic information - Metadata - XML schema implementation. Input and viewing of the metadata is carried out in the task View Passport. Metadata are stored in format XML in the form of a separate file for each sheet of a map. Input of the additional information about a map (data about the manufacturer, the data about technology of creation) is provided and its use at conducting the automated banks of the spatial data. For facilitation of entering the metadata on the data supplier into the GIS installation there is included database of state and private enterprises of the Russian Federation (more than 40), that create the digital maps and plans. The base is in XML format and can be supplemented. Protection of data opened from the GIS Server is improved. All data that are stored on the client computer in a cache for work acceleration always are encrypted by 256-bit key formed from the server key and the client's key. The new algorithm of digest-authorisation of the data is applied to prevent interception of the user's password at connection to the GIS Server. Possibility is added for encrypting the data being transmitted, that are opened remotely. It prevents interception of data and their substitution during transmission over open communication channels. Data are encrypted by 256-bit key established onto concrete communication session. There is added the ability to work off-line with data from the cache at loss of connection with GIS Server. At absence (short-term loss) of connection with the GIS Server the data access automatically goes into the mode "Read only, Prevent printing Prevent copying". When communication is restored, access is automatically changed to the one that is set for the user on the GIS Server, and automatic replication of data in the cache regarding the changed data is carried out. GIS Server Administrator (starting from version 4.x) can prohibit work offline with data. If the GIS Server Administrator cancels access to data for a given group of users, then maps on respective clients will be automatically closed with deleting the data from the cache. If GIS Server Administrator has prohibited offline work with the data, then client programs of versions lower than 11.10.3 that do not support encryption, can open the data on the GIS Server. There is added option to hide parameters of coordinate system of the map opened on the GIS Server. This allows to work remotely with the maps in the local coordinate systems, parameters of which are closed. In all dialogs and tasks the parameters of local coordinate systems will be displayed as parameters of system EPSG:3857 (Mercator on a sphere, adopted in Google). For this purpose the Administrator of GIS Server should set for a map the property: Hide parameters of coordinate system. All recalculations of coordinates and combination with the data having other coordinate systems will be done without distortions. It is recommended to set the property Hide parameters of coordinate system in conjunction with the property Forbid copying a map from the GIS Server. If passport parameters are hidden, and copying the data is not forbidden, at saving the data into formats SXF and TXF the coordinates will be stored in degrees in system EPSG:3857. Automatic check of time of updating the rasters and matrixes opened on the GIS Server, and their synchronous updating on the client is added.
    The mode of the map editor "Join objects", belonging to group of modes "Topology", is improved. Metrics of the second selected object changes by points of the first one (standard) at joining of objects. The metrics of standard object is edited only in the absence of a reply vertex of standard object for a vertex of the second object. The given mode allows to correct contours of mismatched objects by a simple choice of standard and edited object. At joining of contours vertexes the Join tolerance is used, which customization is carried out in dialog "Map Editor Options". Detection of mismatched objects is carried out at processing of maps in programs "Quality control of digital topographic maps" and "Recoding and quality control of digital topographic maps with editing". Results of control and editing the digital topographic maps are logged.
    Dialog of the Map Editor "View error" is improved, which allows you to view and analyze results of the made stage of control. Task provides arbitrary moving in the list of the found and corrected errors with marking the current object on a map. The task "Creation of zones of correspondence by calculations", that performs arithmetic and logic operations with the matrix data of various types (a matrix of heights, a matrix of geological layers, a matrix of qualities) is improved. The set of the operations, used in arithmetic and logic expressions, that are applied to the elements of matrixes is expanded. There are added trigonometric function of calculating the cotangent, and also functions of calculation of natural and decimal logarithms.

  • 15.11.2012 GIS WebServer 7.5 simplifies deployment and administration of regional, municipal and corporate geoportals
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebServer version 7.5 is developed. Cartographical web service GIS WebService is integrated into structure of new GIS WebServer. GIS WebServer sends queries to cartographical web service via protocol OGC WMTS for displaying spatial data. The inclusion of service into the GIS WebServer reduces implementation cost of geoportal, simplifies deployment and administration of geoportal. The new mode of printing a map with use of standard print tools of the browser is implemented. Updating allows to print the multilayered cartographical image formed on the basis of the data received from several web services. Elements of the interface are not related to the map are cut, allowing more effectively to use the space available for printing. If there is an information about selected object, it also goes to print. Possibilities of remote administration via the web interface of GIS WebAdministrator are expanded. The mechanism of access control of users to administration tools is realized. At the simultaneous access of several administrators the first addressed user has the right of editing and saving the settings. To the rest there is available only viewing the current settings, while the first will not finish the work. Support of cross-platform of WMTS-services is improved. For their organization there can be used both GIS WebService, running on a platform of IIS (Windows), and the program Open GIS WebService, running on a platform of Apache (Linux, BSD, OS X, Microsoft Windows). Services support data transfer protocol OGC Web Map Tile Service (OGC WMTS) - OGC 07-057r7 version 1.0.0. Use of the OGC WMTS provides maximum speed of viewing spatial data. Completed improvements promote decrease in expenses for introduction and support of regional, municipal and corporate geoportals. To familiarise with work of new version of GIS WebServer it is possible on the example of projects "Atlas of the Voronezh region" and "Dispatching centre" .

  • 12.11.2012 In GIS Server additional tools of data protection are embedded
    KB "Panorama" has developed GIS Server version 4.0. The new version has improved protection of data opened from the GIS Server. All data that are stored on the client computer in a cache for work acceleration always are encrypted by 256-bit key formed from the server key and the client's key. The new algorithm of digest-authorisation of the data is applied to prevent interception of the user's password at connection to the GIS Server. There is added the ability to work off-line with data from the cache at loss of connection with GIS Server. At absence (short-term loss) of connection with the GIS Server the data access automatically goes into the mode "Read only, Prevent printing Prevent copying". When communication is restored, access is automatically changed to the one that is set for the user on the GIS Server, and automatic replication of data in the cache regarding the changed data is carried out. GIS Server Administrator can prohibit work offline with data. If the GIS Server Administrator cancels access to data for a given group of users, then maps on respective clients will be automatically closed with deleting the data from the cache. If GIS Server Administrator has prohibited offline work with the data, then client programs of versions lower than 11.10.3 that do not support encryption, can open the data on the GIS Server. GIS Server is available in three versions: GIS Server x64 (for x64 and x32, without limiting the number of customers), the GIS Server (Platform x32, without limiting the number of customers), the GIS Server Mini (for platform x32, up to 10 clients). Program of the GIS Server can be delivered in three variants: GIS Server x64 (for platforms x64 and x32, without limiting the number of clients), GIS Server (for platform x32, without limiting the number of clients), GIS Server Mini (for platform x32, up to 10 clients). The new version of the program is available for download on the Download page.

For map viewing in full screen the user has possibility to hide the database panel. The new version supports the advanced technology of check of the user authenticity - the digest authentication. Digest authentication is a mechanism for encryption using random value for the difficulty of cryptanalysis (password cracking). The password always is hashed with addition of a random string of characters which is generated for each session anew. Thus, at each connection a new hash of the password is generated and catching it will give nothing. To familiarise with work of GIS WebServer it is possible on the example of project "Atlas of the Voronezh region". Geoportal "Atlas of the Voronezh region" - a project developed by the Voronezh branch of FSUE "YuzhAGP", with the assistance of KB "Panorama". The project contains several layers of data received from public WMTS-service of KB "Panorama", and also allows to use the data from popular portals. The project is created on the base of open digital topographic maps of scale 1:100 000 and city map of scale 1:25 000 in format SXF. Transition between a general map and a map of the city is done automatically by means of technology "Atlas of maps". GIS WebServer is a base of corporate GIS-platform for collaboration of web-clients and desktop applications. Within the limits of system the users of desktop applications (GIS "Panorama 11", GIS "Operator", GIS Panorama Mini and others) and users of web applications can work simultaneously with the same sources of data, carry out their agreed change and viewing. To date, the platform is being implemented in companies operating in the extractive industry, energy and agricultural sectors, as well as in bodies of state administration.

The complex provides the automated stream processing of digital maps of scales from 1: 10 000 to 1: 1 000 000 in format SXF for the purpose of reduction to a single classifier, performance of automatic correction of topology errors, the matching of the adjacent sheets along lines of a geographical grid and union of digital maps into united data sets. Experience of the adjacent organisations shows, that the initial cartographical data, as a rule, contain thousands errors on sheet (self-crossings, topology, semantics, reporting, etc.). At data processing by programs of the complex the most of errors are corrected automatically. Corrected data in exchange format SXF are placed into bank of spatial data, work with which provides the Complex of maintaining a databank of digital maps and data of remote sensing the Earth. In the new version of the complex of automated quality control and correction of maps there is added ability of a correct merge into one map of the array of adjacent sheets of the digital topographic maps covering territory of any size (on a longitude and on latitude). Depending on length of source region the automatic installation of a recommended output map projection is carried out. In particular, sheets of topographic maps within 1-3 zones can be combined into one topographical map (projection of Gauss-Krueger or UTM) with an axial meridian of the central zone; the sheets of maps coming north or south of 60 degrees on latitude, without coming out off equator, having length no more than 120 degrees on a longitude, can be combined on the basis of a conical projection; the sheets of maps located in limits from-60 to +60 degrees on latitude can be combined on the basis of the Cylindrical Mercator projection; world maps can be formed on the basis of projection of cylindrical Miller. Recommended projection provides a correctness of uniting the objects of source area of any size. Results of work of the complex are recorded into the report. The task of checking the quality of a map in format SXF is improved: the control scheme of maps of scale 1:1 000 000 is added, control schemes of maps of scales from 1:10 000 to 1:500 000 are refined.

    For recalculations of arbitrary projections and systems of coordinates of tiles and maps the structure of the GIS includes a database of codes EPSG and corresponding parameters of flat and geodetic systems of coordinates. It allows to put operational situation in any point of the Earth or to trace the movement of mobile objects on navigation data without preliminary preparation of maps or with use of any national spatial data. Symbols of operational situation are formed according to requirements of standard KEUZ-2012. Symbols on digital topographical maps are formed according to requirements of the Common Information Cartographic software, approved by Chief of Military Topographic Directorate. Into the Options menu the item Cursor type is added to select large (on the whole window) or a small crosshair or arrow. The cursor in the form of an arrow can be used at making the reports and presentations. The new version of the program is available on the Download page.

  • 03.05.2012 Complex of automatic vectorization of images of version 2 processes vegetation, hydrography and a road net
    In KB "Panorama" the Complex of automated decoding and vectorization according to data of remote sensing of the Earth of version 2 is developed. The new version carries out an automatic vectoring of a road net, hydrography and vegetation by images of air and space photographing with the permission up to three meters. Automatic vectorization is performed on the basis of recognition of raster areas belonging to the object with use of the patterns digitized by the user. Process of an automatic vectoring consists of preliminary processing a raster, classification, processing of a classification raster, transformation of a raster to a vector and vector processing. The classification is based on the formation of training samples, detecting and memorizing statistical decoding characteristics, including spectral (average color) and textural characteristics (contrast, energy, correlation). For recognition of the areal objects the multiclass classifier is used allowing simultaneously to vectorize several types of objects. The differentiated approach to shadow areas on the image improves quality of contouring on border of areas of different classes. In the program the parallel calculations are used, that considerably increases speed of processing at an execution on computers with multiprocessor (multi-core) architecture. For processing a raster of classification the morphological operations are used - change of a binary state of pixel on the base of state's analysis of its neighbours. These operations include: erosion,increasing, deleting of small areas and filling of small areas. Recognized raster areas are filtered, smoothed and transformed into segments of linear and polygon vector objects. With contours of objects the operations of union, filtration and smoothing are performed. The vector map of recognition results is exported to formats SXF and SHP.

Algorithms of mapping the following groups of conventional symbols are changed: Control points, Marching columns, Boundaries, Weapon in view of requirements of the document the Classifier of electronic conventional symbols of operative situation, approved in 2012. New algorithms allow to reduce in several times the number of conventional symbols in the classifier. The conventional symbol of object on a map is automatically formed from a base conventional symbol of the object view in view of a concrete combination of values of semantic characteristics. Such approach reduces time of a choosing the necessary symbol from library and reduces number of the operator errors. Instead of a choosing a picture the operator enters into semantics of object the known to him information about the state belonging, a state, mobility, security, properties of vehicles, arms and so on. Programmable signs themselves determine a view of a suitable symbol. The similar approach is used in the standard of the International Hydrographic Organization to display sea navigation charts S57/S52. Examples of the symbols dependent on values of semantics, are described in the document \Doc\Operator's guide. The new version of the program is available on the site in Download section.

  • 23.03.2012 KB Panorama has developed Complex of automated decoding and vectorization according to data of remote sensing of the Earth
    The first version of the Complex of automated decoding and vectorization is intended for an automatic vectoring of linear objects by color RGB images of the earth's surface. The basic direction of using the complex in the current version is the automatic vectoring of a road net by images of air and space photographing with the permission up to three meters. The complex includes a set of algorithms of processing the raster images and the vector objects combined into a single technological process, running within the project. Automatic vectorization is performed on the basis of recognition of raster areas belonging to the object with use of the patterns digitized by the user. Process of an automatic vectoring consists of preliminary processing a raster, classification, processing of a classification raster, transformation of a raster to a vector and vector processing. Classification - process of determining the belonging of the separate pixels of a source raster to one or another recognizable object. The classification is based on the formation of training samples, detecting and memorizing statistical decoding characteristics, including spectral (average color) and textural characteristics (contrast, energy, correlation). For processing a raster of classification the morphological operations are used - change of a binary state of pixel on the base of state's analysis of its neighbours. These operations include: erosion,increasing, deleting of small areas and filling of small areas. Recognized raster areas are filtered, smoothed and transformed into segments of linear vector objects. With linear objects the operations of union, filtration and smoothing are performed. The vector map of recognition results is exported to formats SXF and SHP. Processing can be done in stages, for selection of parameters, or in a stream mode. Parameters of a test vectoring can be used for an automatic vectoring the block of the one-type rasters.
