Such semantics is created and managed by applied programs at decision of various tasks and should not be changed in a random way. At displaying samples of objects in a ruler of models set of the Map Editor there is considered a set of the established values of semantic characteristics for convenience of creation of special maps (sea navigation, aeronavigation, operational and tactical and others). The complex of "Preparation to print" is updated. The task of forming the legend of matrix is developed. The task creates the map of the SIT format containing a legend of a matrix of heights (MTW) or a matrix of qualities (MTQ). The matrix legend represents the list of color diapasons of a palette with indicating of numerical limits of diapasons ranges. The legend of a matrix of qualities can contain the irregular diapasons set by the user at creation of a matrix. The task "Map Legend" is improved. There is added the ability to reconfigure palette of matrix of qualities (MTQ). The palette also can be loaded from a file of previously created matrix and contain irregular diapasons. In the task "Modify matrix projection" the ability to create an output raster in format TIFF is added. TIFF the raster is created in case source image has been loaded in the mode "Don't copy the source image to the RSW-file". This allows you to transform into the specified coordinate system optical and multispectral images with a different number of channels and the number of bits per channel more than 8. The coordinate system can be set by a choice of code EPSG, by choosing the parameters of the coordinate system from lists in format XML or by input of parameters by the user. Into group of tasks "Import/Export of data (in addition to the File menu)" the task "Import of matrixes of heights from files of formats IMG, TIFF" is added. In the dialog task the various characteristics of the source file are displayed (the number of channels and their depth, parameters of the projection and system of coordinates) and it is possible to choose the channel of a multichannel file intended for import to a file of a matrix of heights MTW. The new version of the program and the documentation are available on the website in the Download section.

  • 24.09.2013 "Panorama Editor" transforms optical and multichannel multispectral images of format GeoTIFF to the local coordinate systems
    In KB "Panorama" the program "Panorama Editor" of version 11.10.15 is developed. In the task of "Modify raster projection" the possibility to create an output raster in TIFF format is added. TIFF raster is created in case the source image has been loaded in a mode "Not copy the source image into RSW file". It allows to transform into the specified coordinate system the optical and multispectral images with a different number of channels and number of bits per channel more than 8. The coordinate system can be defined by a choice of the EPSG code, by a choice of parameters of the coordinate system from the lists in XML format or by input of parameters by the user. Images in format GeoTIFF (and any other formats supported by the library GDAL) can be combined with the data from geoportals. At displaying, the images on the fly are transformed to the coordinate system of a geoportal for combining the images with the specified degree of a transparency of overlapping layers. The block of geodesy tasks is updated. The new mode "Formation of electronic XML-document LAND-PLAN" under the new XML-scheme of version 4 is developed. For convenience in the geodesy editor there is added the new panel of screen buttons "Electronic documents".

Dialog of selecting the object being created in the Map Editor is improved. In the menu by the right button it is possible to change the sizes of samples of conventional symbols of selected objects taking into account the resolution of your monitor. The chosen size is stored in the GIS parameters for the further use. At displaying samples of objects in a ruler of models set of the Map Editor the set of the established values of semantic characteristics is considered. It allows the operator to form a ruler of models with various values of semantics that accelerates operations of creating special maps (sea navigation, aeronavigation, operational and tactical and others). Objects of these maps have conventional symbols that depend on values of a large number of semantics, and on a ruler of models they will have at once different conventional symbols (earlier in models they were displayed by uniform base standard symbols without semantics account). In the Classifier Editor for semantics of object the property "not editing" is added. At use of this property the editing of specified semantics for the user will be banned. Such semantics is created and managed by applied programs at decision of various tasks and should not be changed in a random way. The new version of the program and the documentation are available on the website in the Download section.

Software products are intended to solve problems connected with information support of decision-making in agriculture. During the field's survey the visual component of the received data plays important role. The most obvious way of its storage is a photo. Thanks to the GPS and GLONASS systems there is a possibility to save geographical coordinates of a place of survey in the metadata of a digital image (geotagging). This simple procedure will allow even after many years precisely to answer the question, where exactly this or that photo has been made and what exactly on it is imprinted. Information about the current location is recorded into tags of a graphic file automatically at once after photographing, without demanding from the photographer of additional manipulations. In the new version of agrarian GIS the geotagging of photos is integrated into a subsystem of monitoring the fields. Such possibility allows to supplement the description of farmland with photos of soil cuts, conditions of crops, mochars, man-made and anthropogenic influences. Together with data from open sources (meteorological data, properties of vegetation, fire danger, a road situation and many other things) this information becomes a basis for acceptance of well-founded decisions as operational management of agro-technical actions, and related with investment and insurance activity. In "Panorama AGRO" and "Panorama FARMING" the considerable attention is given to the subsystem of monitoring the crops. The structure of indicators is adjusted individually for each cultivated culture depending on its features. The special mode allows to filter the log of measurements, leaving only the information relevant for the specified date. Agrarian GIS at level of the spatial data are integrated with the Workstation of agronomist, GIS Server, GIS WebServer and GIS WebServer AGRO. It allows to create complex multi-purpose distributed information complexes, including databanks, situational centres, workstations, Internet portals. In other words - the single information space with entry points for a variety of business entities. New versions are available on the website in the Download section.

  • 05.03.2013 Service of coverages the GIS WebCoverageService provides fast access to data of any size with different resolution
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebCoverageService version 2.0 is developed. Service is developed in accordance with the specification OGC (Open GIS Consortium) for the service Web Coverage Service (OGC WCS) - OGC 09-110r4 version 2.0.1. The new version of service allows from a set of matrixes for the entire Globe (for example, organised by a principle of SRTM-matrixes) to issue by the expanded request the description of coverage of any requested territory in the projection set by code EPSG and in the requested resolution. Such approach simplifies updating of separate matrixes, gradual expansion of processed territory without change of other matrixes and interruption of service's work. At request of coverages with more rough resolution than at matrixes available on the server, there is carried out smoothing a surface and formation in a service's cache of the reduced copy of a matrix of certain level (like levels of tiles) for acceleration of performing the repeated requests. Ability to select a resolution of coverage reduces the amount of transferred data, accelerates the transfer of data and improves the quality of the surface when it is displayed in 3D-format. Set of matrixes can contain superposed matrixes of higher resolution onto separate areas of land (settlements, roads, airdromes and so on). At request of a coverage there is carried out an automatic sampling the most exact matrixes for a given area and transfer of the generalized data with the different resolution that reduces the amount of stored data and raises accuracy of a coverage. For accelerating a performance of coverages queries and reduction of the amount of transferred data a customizing an accuracy of issued values (matrixes elements of coverings) is supported. Together with services GIS WebService (OGC WMS\WMTS) and GIS WebFeatureService (OGC WFS) this service allows you to organize an exchange of all main types of spatial data. The new version of the program and the documentation are available on the website in the Download section.

  • 19.02.2013 Complex of 3D analysis expands the use of methods of geostatistical analysis of Kriging and Kokriging
    In KB "Panorama" the "Complex of 3D analysis" version 3.0 is developed. In the new version in the task "Building matrix of qualities" the methods of geostatistical analysis of Kriging and Kokriging are used for modelling surfaces of terrain properties. Kokriging is a modification of Kriging and possesses advantages inherent to the Kriging:smoothness of a created surface at the expense of use of monotonous modelling functions; possibility of selection and customization of modelling function by the user on the basis of analysis of the graph of data's real distribution; possibility of compensation of measurements errors on points at building surface. Unlike Kriginga the Kokriging can use not only the points in which the simulated characteristic is measured, but also the points in which other characteristic is measured correlated with simulated (changing concordantly with simulated one). This feature allows to execute surface's construction in cases when direct measurement of the simulated characteristic with necessary density is impossible or expensive, at possibility of cheap measurement of other characteristic. As methods of modelling a surface, Kriging and Kokriging are developed in the geostatistics, therefore were originally applied to an estimation of mineral resources. Later, these methods have been successfully applied in hydrology, ecology, natural resources, agriculture and other areas of analysis and modeling of spatial data. Further development of the complex was commissioned by the Ukrainian agro holdings introducing precision farming techniques. The new version of the program and the documentation are available on the website in the Download section.
