  • 30.12.2014 In GIS "Panorama 11" the classifier of kinds of land use is implemented
    From December, 24th, 2014 on territory of the Russian Federation there is in force a new classifier of kinds of permitted use of land plots, approved by decree of the Ministry of economic development of Russia from September 1, 2014 No. 540. In KB "Panorama" a software realization of this classifier is made, according to which kinds of permitted use of land in Russia are defined. The classifier includes 12 groups, in which 81 kind of permitted use is presented. The order № 540 does not contain provisions which would regulate the use of the classifier in relation to land plots, which kind of permitted use is established prior to the entry of the Order No. 540 in force, and also provisions about an order of using the classifier in case town-planning regulations establish kinds of permitted use of the land plots, not appropriated to the classifier. Since December, 24th 2014 classifier will define kinds of permitted use of land plots, established after the specified date. Thus, it does not matter, in what order the kind of permitted use is established: owing to town-planning regulations, an establishment of kind of permitted use in the documentation on a lay-out of territory or otherwise. Considering the fact that the development and adoption of the rules of land use and development takes a long time, it would be prudent now to apply the classifier for developing rules of land use and development, otherwise there can be complexities with entering the information into the state cadastre of real estate regarding the description of kinds of permitted land use. Information on the types of permitted use of land is included into the digital classifiers survey.v4.rsc and terrplan.rsc. The updated classifiers are available for download in the website in Classifiers section.

  • 25.12.2014 Panorama SpatialDB Service carries out classification and coding of objects on a basis of "programmed semantics"
    In KB "Panorama" the Panorama SpatialDB Service of version 3.1.1 is developed. The new version added the ability to handle classification key of object that is stored in a separate field in the database. This "key" can be a key of object in the map classifier, and "programmed semantics". Value of "programmed semantics" is calculated dynamically on the basis of values of other object characteristics, its metrics, classification code and properties of other objects. Calculation is carried out in graphic library IML with use of MAPAPI functions dynamically connected to the classifier RSC. Use of of code KEUZ in the military-oriented GIS "Operator" may be example of using the "programmed semantics" for the classification and encoding of objects. Code KEUZ is formed according to a current set of values of object's semantic characteristics and the generalised key. In the program the tools of remote administration are expanded. Now the structure of the processed data can not only be specified by the applied scheme of data description for an exchange of topographic maps, as previously, but also be customized manually. It allows to translate onto the GIS Server the spatial database of arbitrary structure. Panorama SpatialDB Service is the utility program for the GIS Server. It provides displaying the spatial databases in the form of vector maps in the adopted conventional signs. Carries out synchronous updating of databases at editing of the vector image, and also image updating at changing the records of spatial databases. By means of Panorama SpatialDB Service the spatial databases in the form of vector maps can be published for the multiuser access. As a result, clients of the server get access to these databases and in accordance with their authority to make certain changes - to create, to edit or to delete objects. On the other hand, the information in the database may also change. Panorama SpatialDB Service traces changes of the information in the database and actions of users of the GIS Server on editing the cartographical representation of this database and carries out synchronisation of these changes. Thus, Panorama SpatialDB Service supports in an actual state the cartographical representation of the information of a relational database and provides possibility of viewing and change of this information in a database by clients of the server. In addition to desktop GIS applications, access to cartographic presentation of spatial databases can be provided through GIS WebService SE. GIS WebService SE provides access to the data from the database according to the protocols OGC WMS, OGC WMTS, OGC WFS, OGC WFS - T, OGC WCS. Cartographical data can be replicated onto other servers.

In the new version the dialog "Controlling the display of channels by histogram" is added. The mode allows to improve the image quality of panchromatic, color and multispectral rasters. It is achieved by increase in contrast and fine tuning the brightness of visible channels. The contrast increase occurs at a stretching a range of the colors which are really present on a raster, onto all range of the colors displayed by the monitor. Brightness change is reached by applying a gamma correction at displaying nonlinear transformation of color's intensity. To determine what part of a range of colors can be stretched over all visible range with the minimum loss of information, the histogram of brightness distribution over visible channels is shown. For contrast increase it is necessary to set extreme sliders in a dialog window along the edges of histogram spikes. The smaller distance between the extreme sliders is, the greater will be the contrast. Changing the position of an average slider allows to change in addition to the contrast the brightness of a raster. To avoid distortion of colors the change of sliders positions for all visible channels by default occurs simultaneously. There is supposed a possibility of change of contrast and brightness for each channel separately. In this case, you can achieve even more increase of the contrast. Setting of displaying is possible both by the histogram of all raster, and by the histogram of the chosen area. Thus, the image can be optimally configured for the entire raster, and for the local area. The new version of the program is available for download on the Download page.

  • 11.12.2014 In the GIS "Panorama 11" the new tools of processing geodata are built-in
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama 11" of version 11.12.4 is developed. In the new version there are the modified the block of geodesy tasks, tasks of Map Computer, Road net, "Navigator 3D", tools of checking the quality and updating of maps. In the Geodetic editor the modes "To save the image for a graphic part of a report" and "To keep the image of the allocated fragments of a map" provide saving of the graphic files in format JPEG with optimal compression ratio. There are optimised the procedures of attaching to XML files of the land-plan of the attached files with images of documents and applications, including filling the structure of documents for the adjacent land plot. In procedure "Import from files of geodesic gears" there is changed an algorithm of reading and data processing from Nikon devices in RAW format. Service functions of dialog "Import of geodetic measurements from devices" are improved. The mode "Edit semantics of object of cadastral works" provides the input data on the location of the object in the structure both KLADR, and OKTMO. Input of information on levels of address unit is supported: 1st level "Area"; 2nd level "Municipality - Urban settlement or a city"; 3rd level "Urban area" or "Rural village"; 4th level "Location"; 5th level "Street". In modes of formation of XML-file of the land-plan the changes are made that provide recording the element "Locality_Name". In the task of Map Computer in the mode "Inquiry on object" a selection of objects is carried out by semantics code specified in the field the layer identifier in the Classifier Editor (a road net - a road number, rivers - the name and others). It provides automatic selection of map objects without additional actions of the operator for choice of the identifier. This mode provides marking on a map of the terrain objects throughout their length and viewing the list of characteristics combinations and values with indicating the length \area where they are and a share in percentage. Into the task of "Graph of roads" the mode "Graphs union" is added. This mode is intended to merge graphs which were built onto adjacent areas. A necessary condition for the join of graphs is the presence of contact points. The new tool enables you to organize the production of digital navigation maps concurrently on different territories, with the further combining the created graphs without long-term rebuilding. The task "Navigator 3D" is modified. Possibility is added to quickly change the conventional 3D-symbols of objects by a choice of new value from the list in semantics of object. For this purpose semantics should have type "Code from classifier" and its values should correspond to the models from library of three-dimensional models in P3D file. For example, in the classifier operator.rsc to the object of type "Plane" by semantics "Авиация#P3D#Military 3D.p3d" the 3D-view can be set: "Plane F-16", "Plane An-26" and other. At changing the value of semantics the plane symbol on 3D-model will automatically change. A new type of semantics is added: Programmed formula. Value of the characteristic can be calculated dynamically on the basis of values of other object characteristics, its metrics, a classification code and properties of other objects. Calculation is carried out in dynamic library (DLL) with use of functions MAPAPI. The library is connected to classifier RSC like graphic libraries IML. Examples of use of semantics the Programmed formula are given in SDK. For more information, see the Programmer's Guide. The task of Connection of geoportals is refined. In the new version the list of geoportals layers is expanded. Layers are added: Visicom with maps of Ukraine, EATLAS with maps, photos and signatures of Moscow and Moscow region. The user's interface for dialog of choosing a folder of storage of a data cache is improved. There is modified the task "Report of adjacent sheets" that carries out check of objects coordination of map's adjacent sheets with the issuance of Protocol of errors into the LOG directory of processed area. The comprehension of messages is improved, into the report the code of object and a code of value of uncoordinated semantics is put. The modified variant of the task when viewing Protocol allows you to disable the errors repeated on adjacent sheets. Report viewing is carried out in the task "View errors" of Map Editor. To disable recurring errors you need to set the mode "Hide marked messages". The new version of the program is placed the website in the Download section.

Access to a map have those server clients, who in accordance with theirs powers can make changes to the database: create, edit, or delete objects. Panorama SpatialDB Service monitors and synchronizes all changes in a spatial data file that allows to provide clients of the server with the actual cartographical information. Spatial information is located in these databases in accordance with standard OGC 06-103r4: "OpenGIS ® Implementation Standard for Geographic information - Simple feature access - Part 1: Common architecture". This standard of Open GIS Consortium defines rules for posting the information about the spatial description of objects in relational databases, regulates structure of this information and base principles on work with it. Structure of Panorama SpatialDB Service includes service of Windows Service which is started automatically when you start the operating system. It can function around the clock unlimited time and carry out process of synchronization of a database and its cartographical representation on the server under the schedule at the specified time, or regularly with a specified interval. Thus, service Panorama SpatialDB Service itself is simultaneously both a client of relational spatial database, and a client of GIS Server. Besides desktop GIS-applications, access to cartographical representation of the information from spatial databases can be provided by means of web-services. GIS WebService and GIS WebFeatureService provide access to data from database under protocols WMS, WMTS and WFS. Information interface with databases is based on use of the applied scheme of the unified exchange by spatial data. Structure and rules of filling a file of the applied scheme are in detail described in the document "Specification of data for exchange of digital topographic maps in format GML". This specification is developed on the basis of using a subset of components of schemes specified in standard OpenGIS Geography Markup Language (GML) Encoding Standard Version: 3.2.1 and requirements of standards ISO of series 19100.

Structure of sown areas is basic and integral part of the farming system defining its role in increasing productivity and maintaining soil fertility, energy savings, efficient use of the growing season. "Workstation of agronomist" uses a single database in a format of the book of fields history with GIS "Panorama AGRO" that provides complex use of functionally various software products to solve the important problem of increasing productivity while maintaining the fertility of arable land. Insufficiently thoughtful selection of crops in the rotation - a common cause of loss of productivity and fertility of the land. In these conditions, the use of the GIS to develop structure of sown areas of a crop rotation significantly increases the efficiency of this process. Thus, it should be borne in mind that in the conditions of market relations, a private property on the land the previously adopted structures of sown areas need significant changes. In the program it is possible to prepare several variants of a crop rotation, for each of them to prepare technological maps, to estimate effectiveness and to select the optimal rotation. For increasing efficiency of complex using the "Workstation of agronomist", GIS "Panorama AGRO" and GIS WebServer AGRO in the new version of the program the authentication's order of system's users is changed. The two-level authentication of the user is realised: at physical and logic level. At physical level the authentication of the application is made for connection with a database. At logic level for logon it is necessary to authorize the user registered in the program. Physical level is provided by means of DBMS, the logic level of user's access to system resources is controlled by the software package "Panorama AGRO". The made changes allow to form agrarian GIS of the enterprise, ensuring the work with a database of soil fertility and spatial information about contours of fields with use of remote access on various devices, including tablets and smartphones. The new version of the program is placed on the website in the Download section.

  • 07.03.2014 Panorama SpatialDB Service works with Oracle spatial databases
    KB "Panorama" developed Panorama SpatialDB Service of version 2.4. The new version adds support for working with spatial databases Oracle. The program allows to organise access of clients of GIS Server to spatial databases, hosted on platforms of DBMS Oracle, PostgreSQL and Microsoft SQL Server. Panorama SpatialDB Service works with the DBMS in accordance with standard of Open GIS Consortium (OGC 06-103r4). This standard defines rules for posting the information about the spatial description of objects in relational databases, regulates structure of this information and base principles on work with it. The users connected to the GIS Server via desktop applications or web-services, can view contents of databases in the form of cartographical representation. Service can work simultaneously with several GIS Servers and servers of databases which can be placed on platforms Windows or Linux. Service of Windows Service which is a part of the complex, allows in an automatic mode without intervention of the operator to monitor changes in spatial databases and to perform actualization of digital maps. GIS WebService and GIS WebFeatureService, connected to the server, can provide access to the data from database by protocols WMS, WMTS and WFS. Description of structure of a spatial database can be set as manually by administrator of service, and to be defined by the applied scheme of the unified exchange of spatial data. Structure and rules of filling a file of the applied scheme are in detail described in the document "Specification of data for exchange of digital topographic maps in format GML" (document code - BSD.1.3:2011). This specification is developed on the basis of using a subset of components of schemes specified in standard OpenGIS Geography Markup Language (GML) Encoding Standard Version: 3.2.1 and requirements of standards ISO of series 19100. Use of the applied scheme allows to expand service possibilities on processing the spatial objects stored in a database. In particular, if earlier there was a possibility to assign to one table of database only one kind of objects on a map, then at use of applied scheme the conformity is set the plural. The scheme defines sets of classification codes of map objects, grouping them into logic layers of spatial data. Layer is characterized by a common set of attributes (semantics) for all of its constituent objects. Thus, scheme application makes it possible to set the conformity "DB table = Logic layer of the map data", rather than as previously "DB table = one conventional symbol on a map". Now you can store in one table the objects of different type. For example, objects of type "river" can be both linear, and polygonal. As they have the same set of attributive characteristics (semantics), it is more expedient to store them in one database table. Product's installation includes scripts for creation of databases in DBMS of Oracle, PostgeSQL and Microsoft SQL Server. Structure of created databases corresponds to the typical applied scheme. In the program additionally the possibility of conducting classification codes of cartographical objects directly in database tables is provided. Such approach allows to predetermine at level of a database the appearance of object on a map. New version of software and documentation are available for download on the Download page.

The program is developed on the basis of system GIS WebServer, is aimed at specialists in the field of agriculture and is an extension of the GIS "Panorama AGRO" for work with data of the agricultural enterprise on the basis of WEB-technologies. In the new version there are implemented new approaches to the publication of the spatial data by protocols OGC WMS and OGC WMTS on the basis of applying the web-service GIS WebService Special Edition (SE) under control of web-servers Apache, ngnix or MS IIS. Service of GIS Application Service works to support the work of web-service GIS WebService SE. The service is implemented as the multithreaded application. Each thread processes a separate request. Program installation onto the multiprocessor server significantly raises speed of application GIS WebServer AGRO and reduces time for performance of queries and creation of tiles. For improving the convenience and presentation there is added the possibility to control the order of displaying layers of a multilayered tile map. The user can move the layers relative to each other and to indicate which layer should always appear on top. In the "Map contents" component the last layer included onto visibility is displayed now on the top of all others. In geoinformation system of federal state budgetary institution "Center of agrochemical service "Belgorod", which provides access to a database of agrochemical service at level of the agricultural enterprise, municipality, subject of federation and the Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation the great number of the various cartographical information is used. The system of visualizing the web-application of the center of agrochemical service implemented on GIS WebServer AGRO, operates with the tile data obtained automatically as a result of work of web-service GIS WebService Special Edition (SE) on base of spatial data of GIS "Panorama AGRO" under management of DBMS MS SQL Server. For managing large amounts of spatial data (maps of fields, images, matrixes of qualitative characteristics of district) GIS WebServer AGRO is connected to a network of the GIS Servers that provides unlimited scalability of a management system.

  • 28.01.2014 Panorama SpatialDB Service provides access to spatial databases for desktop and web application
    In KB "Panorama" the Panorama SpatialDB Service of version 2.3 is developed. New version has a possibility to use the applied scheme of the unified exchange of spatial data as at performance of primary loading the vector maps into spatial databases PostgreSQL and Microsoft SQL Server, and at the subsequent monitoring of changes in these databases and their actualization on a map. Structure and rules of filling a file of applied scheme are described in detail in the document "Specification of data for an exchange of digital topographic maps in format GML" (document code - BSD.1.3:2011). The specified specification is developed on the basis of using a subset of schemes components specified in standard OpenGIS Geography Markup Language (GML) Encoding Standard Version: 3.2.1 and requirements of standards of ISO a series 19100. Use of the applied scheme allows to expand service possibilities on processing of spatial objects stored in a database. In particular, if earlier there was a possibility to assign to one database table only one view of objects on a map, then at use of the applied scheme the plural conformity is set. Scheme defines sets of classification codes of map objects, grouping them into logic layers of spatial data. The layer is characterised by a common set of attributes (semantics) for all objects belonging to it. Thus, the use of scheme gives the possibility to set conformity "Database table = Logic layer of map data", rather than as previously "Database table = one conventional symbol on a map". Now it is possible to store in one table the objects of different type. For example, objects of type "river" can be both linear, and polygonal. As they have the same set of attributive characteristics (semantics), it is more expedient to store them in one database table. The new version of Panorama SpatialDB Service provides an opportunity to conduct classification codes of cartographical objects directly in the database tables. This approach allows us to predetermine the database-level the view of object on a map. Installation of the product includes scripts to create databases in the DBMS PostgeSQL and Microsoft SQL Server. The structure of created databases corresponds to the typical applied scheme. In the Guide of administrator the separate section is added in detail describing process of preparing the database for subsequent loading into it of a digital map and creation in database of log of change tracking. After that the map can be accessible to the users of GIS Server and all changes occurring in a database will be displayed on it at the expense of working the service Panorama SpatialDB Service. Panorama SpatialDB Service is intended to expand possibility of the GIS Server for cartographical displaying the information from databases Microsoft SQL Server and PostgreSQL. Service can work simultaneously with several GIS Servers and servers of databases which can be placed on platforms Windows or Linux. Service Windows Service which is a part of the complex, allows in an automatic mode without intervention of the operator to monitor changes in spatial databases and to carry out actualization of digital maps placed on the server. It allows, for example, not only to load a database by a vector map from the GIS "Panorama", but also to execute the coordination of several various DBMS that store spatial data. The users connected to the GIS Server through desktop applications or web-services, can view the contents of databases in the form of cartographical representation. GIS WebService and GIS WebFeatureService, connected to the GIS Server, can provide access to the data from database by protocols WMS, WMTS and WFS. The new version of the program and the documentation are available for download on the Download page.
