  • 25.12.2015 "Workstation of agronomist" expands possibilities of assessment of agricultural land
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of agronomist" version11.12.12 is developed. In the new version the modes are added for assessment of agricultural land for formation of optimal structure of sown areas and automation of the mechanized works. Implemented in the program the technique of processing the points of fieldwork and laboratory analysis of soil is based on use of matrixes. Information about a relief (matrix of elevations) and separate agrochemical indicators (matrix of qualities) are analyzed by the program to obtain borders of contours of agricultural land having a homogeneous composition of characteristics of arable land. There are added the modes "Profile along a line", "Profile along object" and "Capacity in a point". They provide the visual and quantitative analysis of values of arable land indicators. Formation of structure of a crop rotation of sown areas homogeneous by composition in borders of arable land contour allows to apply the standardized technological maps of agricultural crops' cultivation. For processing of fields contours having heterogeneous composition of soils, technologies of "exact agriculture" are used, that are based on knowledge of local features of each elementary section of arable land contour. Updated dialog "Field passport" provides conducting an agrochemical database for each contour of the field as a set of matrixes of agrochemical indicators, and by means of the mode "Calculation of annual doses of mineral fertilizer for exact agriculture" there are formed the matrixes of needs for nutrients and the average value of annual dose of mineral fertilizer. Obtained matrixes can be unloaded into exchange format for the subsequent loading into onboard computers of differentiated application's systems. The size of the elementary section - a matrix cell - is controlled by the user, taking into account the capture width of used units. For collective use the map of structure of sown areas and sets of matrixes of separate fields contours are placed on the GIS Server. Information about contours of agricultural land, needs for nutrients and application doses are published in the Internet by means of GIS WebServer AGRO and can be obtained on any computer connected to a network and having a standard browser. The mode "Crossing of objects" allows to form a certificate on use in agricultural production of plots (allotment of shares) consisting on the cadastral account. The program automatically calculates the area and percent of occurrence of one polygonal object (ground area) into another one (a contour of agricultural land). The new version of the program and the updated documentation are available on the web-site in the Download section.

    In KB "Panorama" the GIS Constructor version 11.9.0 is developed for operating system Astra Linux Special Edition (release "Smolensk"). The new version includes the tools for the automated creation of applied XSD-schemes to publish the geospatial data in the web. The XSD-scheme is formed on the basis of the digital classifiers describing kinds of objects (featureMember), the composition of their attributes (metadata of objects), format and a range of accepted values, specifics of the coordinate description of objects and other properties which are stored in data sets of formats GML (XML) or geoJSON. Designing of applied schemes can be made on the basis of the digital classifiers posted for free access on the website of KB "Panorama" and prepared in accordance with the regulations specified in the description of classifiers (land, air and sea navigation, territorial planning, communications, agriculture, cartography, geology, forestry, emergency situations and others). There are added the examples for work with the MAPAPI-interface using Qt of version 5 entering into installation of OS Astra Linux SE. The component of "Graph of roads" is improved: there are optimised the algorithms for constructing network, calculation of the minimum path between specified points by time and distance. The component of data access of GIS Server is refined: input of parameters of connection with the GIS Server and the list of the data are combined into one dialog. The dialog component "Displaying three-dimensional model of district" is improved. The library terrplan.iml is developed for visualizing the objects of digital classifier of a map terrplan.rsc, providing preparing a graphic part of documents of territorial planning. In a complex with the digital classifier survey.v3.rsc there is provided a preparation of town-planning plans of land plots and other documents of urban development activities. In order to reduce the list of conventional symbols in classifier there are used the programmable symbols that automatically form the symbol's image of the desired type and size with taking into account a set of attribute characteristics of the object. It has allowed to generate 783 base symbols from 1 200 signs. Libraries of the GIS-kernel are updated to version 11.12.10.

  • 08.10.2015 "Geoprofi" journal published the article about use of the GIS "Panorama 11" to monitor farmlands
    Journal Geopro (№4 2015) published the article "Use of remote sensing data from space and GIS-technologies to monitor agricultural lands". The article describes the method of performance of works for remote control of crop rotations on the basis of images Landsat 8 OLI/TIRS by means of the GIS "Panorama 11". At the first stage of work in the GIS "Panorama 11" there is formed a vector map of boundaries of contours of agricultural lands and for each field a filling of semantic characteristics is made according to data about crops for the three preceding years. The formed map of fields boundaries is imposed onto the images received from the satellite. By historical images and archival data about growing crops there are formed the standards for automatic recognition. The step-by-step technology of marking the areas is based on the method of supervised classification. The technology of monitoring of agricultural lands according to remote sensing data uses possibilities of software systems - "Complex of analysis of multispectral images" and "Complex of the automated decryption and a vectoring of remote sensing data". The proposed method allows to distinguish the different cultures by satellite images of high resolution, to monitor the dynamics of crops, to carry out monitoring of some indicators that significantly affect the state of the soil and its fertility, and also to observe the status of seedlings.

  • 23.09.2015 Panorama SpatialDB Service provides support of typified fields of geometry in database and processing of various coordinate systems
    KB "Panorama" developed Panorama SpatialDB Service version 3.3.0 for х64 platform. New version increased efficiency of the complex at the expense of the maximal use of hardware and software tools of 64-bit operating systems. Support of typified metrics is added. In a database the fields of the metrics can have not just the generic type GEOMETRY that indicates onto storage in them of the spatial description of objects in accordance with the standards of OGC, and also more narrowly defined type that specifies what particularly type of geometry is contained in this field, for example, MULTIPOINT, MULTILINESTRING or MULTIPOLYGON. The program automatically defines the field type in the database table and leads to the specified type the spatial description of object saved into the database. At work with DBMS PostgreSQL there is added a reduction of issued metrics of objects to the same coordinate system (EPSG:4326 is used). Thus, for given DBMS a storage of the metrics of objects in various coordinate systems is allowed. Earlier as obligatory requirement it was metrics storage strictly in CS EPSG:4326 (WGS-84). Panorama SpatialDB Service is the utility program for the GIS Server. It provides display of spatial databases in the form of vector maps, in the adopted conventional symbols. Performs a synchronous updating of databases at editing the vector image, and also image updating at changing the records of spatial databases. By means of the Panorama SpatialDB Service the spatial databases in the form of vector maps can be published for the multiuser access on the server. As a result the clients of GIS Server get access to these databases and in accordance with theirs powers to make changes - to create, edit or delete objects. Information in a database can in the meantime be changed via SQL-queries from clients of DBMS. Panorama SpatialDB Service traces changes of the information in a database and actions of users on editing of cartographical representation of this database and carries out synchronisation of these changes. Thus, Panorama SpatialDB Service supports in an actual state the cartographical representation on the GIS Server 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. Besides desktop GIS-applications,, access to cartographical representation of the information from spatial databases can be provided by means of GIS WebService SE. GIS WebService SE provides access to the data from the database by protocols OGC WMS, OGC WMTS, OGC WFS, OGC WFS - T, OGC WCS. Cartographical data can be replicated onto other servers.

For the purpose of ensuring a batch processing of maps the output of error messages onto the screen is disabled at processing of separate maps. There are modified the schemes of control the SCHEME of DTM 25t05g.cxm, SCHEME of DTM 50t05g.cxm, SCHEME of DTM 100t05g.cxm, SCHEME of DTM 200t05g.cxm, SCHEME of DTM 500t05g.cxm, SCHEME of DTM 1M05G.cxm. There is added the control type the "Control of coincident parts of objects contours", "Road net (linear) - Settlements (streets) (linear)". There is refined the task "Control of coordination of adjacent sheets of DTM" that performs checking the objects coordination of adjacent sheets of a vector map with issuance of the error log in the LOG directory of processed region. Checking coordinates of corners of sheets frameworks is added. Erroneous coordinates of frameworks of sheets cause distortion of data of DTM when performing control of the coordination of adjacent sheets in the editing mode. If passport coordinates of corners of sheets frameworks differ from theoretical coordinates the program put the message into the reporting document and gives a query to the operator for control interruption. The mode "Without checking semantics of objects" is added that allows to carry out control of coordination of objects metrics without considering semantics. There is developed the control of a digital cartographical base of navigation charts, formed onto preset regions in the specified coordinate system without division into nomenclature sheets. 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, coordination of adjacent sheets along lines of geographic grid and combining digital maps into a common dataset. Experience of the adjacent organisations shows that the original cartographical data, as a rule, contain thousands of errors on sheet (self-crossings, topology, semantics, reports and others). At data processing by programs of this complex most errors are corrected automatically. Corrected data in exchange format SXF are placed into bank of spatial data, the work with which is provided by the Complex of conducting a databank of digital maps and remote sensing data.

The need to reduce wastage and the impact of human factors on the way to profitability and productive efficiency force modern farmers to reconsider the system of management of land assets, production processes and business in general. The solving the issues concerning accounting, control of land shares, constituting the land Bank, calculation of seeds needs, fertilizers and pesticides and preparation of technological maps are the not simple tasks. Agrarian geoinformation systems are intended for solving these problems. Their use allows to reduce the cost of fuel and lubricants, to minimize labour inputs. The range of agricultural GIS is not only programs for agronomists, land surveyors, lawyers, managers, but also is the complete tool for decision making by business owners. Introduction of agrarian geoinformation systems in crop production creates a single integrated information environment of the enterprise, which contains all data about land Bank (area in lease and processing, transmitted and received land via the exchange, lease terms and other), operations on fields crop rotation, the condition of crops, yield. Prompt access to such information allows to increase the control of the company's assets and transparency of business processes.

  • 23.07.2015 In GIS "Operator" a displaying of complex 3D models with animation elements is accelerated
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Operator" of version 11.12.9 is developed. In the new version the task "Navigator 3D" is improved. Possibility of management by detail of displaying three-dimensional objects by levels of distance from the observer is implemented. For object it is possible to assign three various kinds: nearest, middle and a far plan. Nearest to the observer 3D-objects have a detailed view. The view of the middle plan becomes less detailed, a far plan is even more common. It allows to accelerate displaying the three-dimensional maps to the large territories. The size of distance from the observer for nearest, middle and far plan is specified in the map classifier for each object and can be changed for individual objects. The example of customizing and displaying according to specified levels of distances is the map of Noginsk in the folder "\Data\Noginsk\Noginsk.sitx". "Example of city's plan with a library of 3D images" in the folder " \Data\Cadastre\88-2.map" contains animated model of vegetation and water (changing the water surface, vegetation and the like) with the settings of animations in the classifier. View of 3D models of objects is improved at the expense of a changing transparency of imposed structures of a png-format. Library of three-dimensional templates of the classifier standard.p3d, included into the data example, is added by many new views of three-dimensional models of buildings, coverings and other objects. 3D view of symbols has the ability to display with pseudorandom change of the size and positioning of symbols in the models for linear and polygon objects. Possibilities of programmed symbols are expanded. There is supported a displaying the map objects in the form of graphic images on the basis of the reference in semantics onto graphic files of various formats (jpeg, png, tiff, emf, gif, bmp and others), cartographical data in the GIS format (map, sit, sitx, rsw, mtw, mtq, tin, mpt and others), documents (doc, docx, xls, xslx and others). The structure of a file of mpt format can include references to geoportals that allows to place on a map of an inset with various sources of data. At drawing the maps each 30 seconds there is checked the status (date\time) of documents files. If you change the state of the files, the data are reloaded into memory and displayed on the map. References to the data placed on the GIS Server are supported. By means of semantic characteristics of type the Color and Color Weight it is possible to change the background color and degree of data transparency.

  • 17.07.2015 Panorama SpatialDB Service processes the metrics of objects in several hundreds thousand points and supports work with compound titles
    In KB "Panorama" the Panorama SpatialDB Service of version 3.2.2 is developed. The new version adds the ability to process objects, the metric of which is half a million points or more. This possibility is implemented to work with DBMS PostgreSQL. Previously when working with the DBMS the objects with the metrics no more than two hundred thousand points were processed. Such objects are rather the exception to the rule, but in some cases, the metric from hundreds of thousands of points is necessary for some systems. For example, in the case of systems for the fuel and energy complex this requirement is critical, as these systems operate with very extended objects - power lines, pipelines and other. In the new version the algorithm of processing the linear multiplanimetric objects (multilines) is improved. It allows to store in a database the compound titles - for example, titles of rivers and reservoirs in which the letters are arranged in separate subobjects, describing a certain curve. Panorama SpatialDB Service is the utility for the GIS Server. It provides displaying the spatial databases in the form of vector maps in the adopted conventional symbols. Carries out synchronous updating of databases at editing the vector image, and also the 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 on the server. As a result clients of the GIS Server get access to these databases and can make according to theirs powers the certain changes - to create, edit or delete objects. On the other hand, the information in the database may also change. Panorama SpatialDB Service monitors changes of the information in a database and actions of users 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 on the GIS Server 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 information from spatial databases may be provided through GIS WebService SE. GIS WebService SE provides access to the data from the database by protocols OGC WMS, OGC WMTS, OGC WFS, OGC WFS - T, OGC WCS. Map data can be replicated to other servers. New version is available for download on our Download page.

  • 04.06.2015 In "Workstation of geologist" the universal method of calculating bulks of earthworks is integrated
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of geologist" of version 11.12.8 is developed. In the new version the module "Calculating bulks of earthworks" is refined. Planned earthworks volume is calculated according to the cartogram of earthworks. For its creation it is necessary to know elevations of the vertices of the computational grid of squares. Usually it is carried out or by leveling the surface in nodes of squares grid or by interpolation of vertices of rectangles under the topographical plan. The module "Calculating bulks of earthworks" uses for calculations the values from matrixes of heights of landscape (a topographical surface) and a project relief (project surface). Initial and project matrixes can be obtained in the various ways: on the basis of points of field research, by horizontals, photogrammetric methods, on the basis of a cloud of points of air laser scanning or their combination. The program added the ability to set not only the step of squares grid, but the size of the area for calculation. The algorithm of calculation of bulks of moved earth masses is updated. Methods and algorithms of calculations on the basis of matrix calculations of work points allow the user to create the analysis model of squares grid, most precisely describing the source surface. At performance of construction works the project surface more often is presented by a set of horizontal or inclined planes. Accuracy of calculating the bulks will be maximal if nodes of computational grid coincide with points of an extremum of the project surface. In the program the restrictions associated with the correction of step and binding the computational grid of squares are removed that can significantly improve the accuracy of calculations. The new version of the program is available on the website in the Download section.

In the new version there is implemented the possibility of creation of SQL-query for formation of a database structure in accordance with the given XSD-scheme. The scheme should be prepared according to the data specification of exchange of digital topographic maps in format BSD. Software products of KB "Panorama" (GIS "Panorama 11", GIS "Operator" and others) allow to form the specified XSD-schemes on the basis of digital classifiers of digital maps. In Panorama SpatialDB Service there is implemented the full cycle of operations on loading digital map into a spatial database and the further work with it, including formation of a database structure. The new version of service takes into account the differences in the formats of representation of date and time in fields of databases and in semantics of maps. For type of semantics "time" for a map's object there should be set an integer value in the form of HHMMSS (HH - hours, MM - minutes, SS - seconds). For the semantics of type "date" there is set the integer value in the form YYYYMMDD (YYYY - year, MM - month, DD - day). The service automatically recognizes the type of the database field and the corresponding semantics, and then gives the values of date and time to the view adopted in the database (types DATE, TIME, DATETIME) and back. The program optimized the process of restarting the processes of data synchronisation when you change the settings of the program. Now the service restarts only those processes whose settings have changed, thus the map is completely recreated by data from the database. Settings changes are tracked even if they were made in the period when the service could be forcibly stopped. Panorama SpatialDB Service is the utility for the GIS Server. It provides the ability to publish on the server for multi-user access the spatial databases in the form of vector maps in the adopted conventional symbols. As a result the clients of the server get access to these databases and in accordance with their powers can make certain changes - to create, edit or delete objects, and also to see the changes made by third-party tools directly into the database. Desktop applications (GIS "Panorama 11", GIS "Operator", "Panorama-Editor" and others), the applications developed on the basis of toolkit the GIS ToolKit and other server program complexes can be clients of the GIS Server. In addition to desktop GIS applications, access to cartographic presentation of information from spatial databases may be provided by using the GIS WebService SE.

  • 21.05.2015 GIS "Operator" automates solution of tasks of the air defence troops
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Operator" version 11.12.7 is developed. In the new version the tasks in interests of air defense forces are implemented. The task "Building a grid of air defence" provides mapping of a coordinate grid in accordance with the order of the Minister of Defence of the Russian Federation № 188 from May, 15th, 1997. The defense grid is designed to encode coordinates in the solution of problems of management, targeting, planning and others. Depth of building a grid (up to zones, up to sectors, up to squares and so on) is set by the user. Grid elements (zones, sectors, squares and others) can be put in the form of contours or polygons. Into semantics of each element its number formed in accordance with the order is put. In the task "Formation of map sheets by coordinates" there is realized the possibility of creating frameworks of sheets onto region with horizontal coverage from the West to the East from -180 to +180 degrees. At creation of topographic maps in CS-42, CS-95, SCS-2011 on the western hemisphere the input of central meridian in a range from 0 to 360 degrees or from -180 to +180 by the user's choice is supposed. However, during the processing of a region covering more than three coordinate zones, a cylindrical projection is more preferred. Non-uniformly scaled maps covering big territories, placed on the GIS Server, are integrated into a single digital map by means of the "Map Atlas" task. The offered approach allows to create a template of a multisheet map in a cylindrical projection on the Krasovsky's ellipsoid or WGS-84 in the international division and to use it for "smooth" scaling the image of a digital map. The task "To locate photos JPEG by GPS-coordinates" is adapted for operative processing of images of the terrain obtained from unmanned aerial vehicles: there is added the mode of automatic binding the image of a photo by coordinates of a point of photographing and angle of a direction of UAVs movement. In the task of "Connection of geoportals" a support of the user and local coordinate systems and matrixes is added. Speed of displaying the data from geoportals is increased. In the task of "Classifier Editor" the possibility is added for creation of applied XSD scheme which can be used for the standardized exchange of the geodata by OGC protocols and standards of series ISO 19100. Tools of automatic creation of applied schemes for data exchange allow to automate process of standardized data exchange by OGC protocols on the basis of existing or newly created classifiers. In interests of radio engineering armies the GIS "Operator" includes the Complex of computational tasks. The complex is intended to assist in the selection in preset area of a reconnaissance position which are carrying out visual or radar reconnaissance of air objects at low altitude, and also to grouping of radio engineering armies (REA), consisting of set of radar stations, and estimations of possibilities of created grouping REA on implementing the reconnaissance of air objects.

  • 19.05.2015 Panorama SpatialDB Service automatically selects the optimum provider for work with DBMS and carries out the coordination of polytypic formats of date and time
    KB "Panorama" developed Panorama SpatialDB Service version 3.2.1. New version added support for connecting to database MS SQL Server 2012 through data provider SQL Server Native Client 11. The program automatically detects installed providers of data and selects the best: if SQL Server Native Client version 11 is installed, then it is used, otherwise Native Client version 10, and if it is not installed, regular OLE DB Provider for SQL Server is used that is installed by default in the operating system. In Panorama SpatialDB Service there is added a processing of fields and semantics, having types "time" and "date". For type of semantics "time" for a map object should be set an integer value in the form of HHMMSS (HH - hours, MM - minutes, SS - seconds). For the semantics of type "date" there is set an integer value in the form of YYYYMMDD (YYYY - year, MM - month, DD - day). The service automatically recognizes the type of the database field and the corresponding semantics, and then gives the values of date and time to the view adopted in the database (types DATE, TIME, DATETIME) and back. The program optimized the process of restarting the processes of data synchronisation at changing the settings of the program. Now the service restarts only those processes whose settings have changed. Thus the map is completely recreated by data from the database. Settings changes are tracked even if they were made in the period when the service could be forcibly stopped. Panorama SpatialDB Service is a utility for the GIS Server. It provides displaying the spatial databases in the form of vector maps in the adopted conventional symbols. Performs a synchronous updating of databases at editing the vector image, and also image updating at change of records of spatial databases. By means of the Panorama SpatialDB Service the spatial databases in the form of vector maps can be published for the multiuser access on the server. As a result the clients of the GIS Server get to these databases access and in accordance with theirs powers can make the certain changes - to create, edit or delete objects. On the other hand, the information in the database may also change. Panorama SpatialDB Service traces changes of the information in a database and actions of users on editing of cartographical representation of this database and carries out synchronisation of these changes. Thus, Panorama SpatialDB Service supports in an actual condition the cartographical representation on the GIS Server 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. Besides desktop GIS-applications, access to cartographical representation of the information from spatial databases may be provided by means of GIS WebService SE. GIS WebService SE provides access to the data from the database by protocols OGC WMS, OGC WMTS, OGC WFS, OGC WFS - T OGC WCS. Cartographical data can be replicated onto other servers. The new version of the program is available for download on the Download page.

There is implemented a feature that allows you not to keep an active connection to the database and map for large intervals of time between iterations of the data synchronization process. The program of monitoring a database and maps updating is intended for processing and synchronization of spatial information contained in digital vector maps and stored in various relational databases. Maps can be located as locally or to be accessible to the program over the network (file access), and be posted on the GIS Server (client-server access). In the latter case the spatial information of relational databases can be published for the multiuser access on the server in the form of vector maps. As a result, clients of the GIS Server get access to these databases. In addition to desktop GIS applications, access to cartographical representation of information from spatial databases can be provided through GIS WebService SE under protocols OGC WMS, OGC WMTS, OGC WFS, OGC WFS - T, OGC WCS. Cartographical data can be replicated to other servers. The problem of placing the spatial information in a database is very important for many modern systems. A promising solution in this direction is the using a technology of storage of spatial information with use of built-in GIS-subsystem of the DBMS itself. Such subsystem allows to store the spatial description of object in the field of special type. Providing access to such data and their processing is carried out on the basis of generally accepted standards approved by the Open GIS Consortium.

  • 21.01.2015 GIS "Panorama 11" is applied in system of electronic monitoring of persons under control (SEMPUC)
    Specialists of inter-regional public institution "Institute of engineering physics" improve system of electronic monitoring of persons under control (SEMPUC) on the basis of geoinformation technology. Considering the great territorial extent of the Russian Federation, it is necessary to take into account that in many areas where there can be a necessity to deploy the SEMPUC, frequently is absent both the developed infrastructure and any communication channels. In the absence of wired, wireless and high cost of satellite communications channels, the deployment of the SEMPUC is possible on the basis of radio networks. The method of determining locations for placement of the elements of system of electronic monitoring of persons under control on the basis of a radio network of data transmission with using GIS "Panorama 11" is developed and implemented at the "Institute of engineering physics" (Serpukhov).In article devoted to the implementation of the SEMPUC the questions of increasing the accuracy of calculations through the use of digital elevation models (DEM) are discussed in detail. Formation of the locations of elements the SEMPUC and geometrical outlines of zones of service with use of DEM by means of the Complex of 3D-analysis is made on the basis of specific elevation values of the terrain on the length of a considered radio line. Evaluation of the application of various models for calculating the paths leads to the conclusion that the possibility of using a digital elevation model allows to approximate the accuracy of the calculation of the power loss signal to the experimental data at 10-18%, which in turn proves the efficiency of the use of the DEM, especially in areas having irregular construction and rugged nature of the terrain. To familiarise with materials about the methodology of a choice of a rational variant of placing the elements of SEMPUC with use of geoinformation technology it is possible in Article section.
