  • 18.07.2017 GIS WebServer SE for OS CentOS expands the possibilities of 3D analysis of geospatial data
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebServer SE version 3.3 is developed for operating system CentOS 7.2. In the new version the component of three-dimensional model of a map is updated. 3D model provides an opportunity to work and to view information layers from the geospatial data base and remote sensing data for analysis and decision making at designing. 3D surface is displayed in accordance with the terrain. Detailed models can contain three-dimensional objects corresponding to objects of a two-dimensional map.

    The new version extends the user's ability to customize the 3D data model in accordance with its tasks: the view of the 3D object can be linked to its semantic characteristics, the boundaries displaying 3D objects are customized by scales. To get information about the object, you can directly having selected the objects from the 3D view. The composition of displayed three-dimensional objects changes automatically depending on the scale of the map display, at movement along equator the animation of moving and continuous display of 3D maps is provided.

    When solving various navigational tasks the user has an opportunity to use spherical model of globe in the Web-browser: to view cities, countries, continents, analyze their mutual location, and also make a quick transition to any point on the Earth. Formation of spherical model of a terrestrial surface occurs automatically at transition to small scales of display.

    For better perception of spatial data by the user, animation of the image is added when the scale of map display is changed. The basic actions of the user at editing and search of objects of spatial data are simplified. Now when performing the operations of modification and deletion, the output of a list of objects which are in a current point is added. The updated "Map Objects" component in a tabular form provides information about objects during search and selection operations with the possibility of displaying extended information from additional sources.

    The list of available spatial data is expanded by adding the possibility of selecting a service for performing address search and searching by cadastre number on the Rosreestr portal.

    In the new version the possibilities of measurements on a map are expanded - the mode of measuring angles on a map is added, modes of measurement of distance and the area are updated. To access spatial data, GIS WebServer SE uses the GIS WebService SE application server that within the geoinformation space provides access to data by the international standards OGC WFS, WFS-T, WMS, WMTS, WCS. For access to spatial data GIS WebServer SE uses application server GIS WebService SE which within the limits of geoinformation field provides access to data under the international standards OGC WFS, WFS-T, WMS, WMTS, WCS. As a source of the spatial data the Databank of digital maps and remote sensing data can act which provides gathering, storage, search and delivery of the spatial data in exchange formats, display of a state of the data in the form of the maps-schemes, the automated formation and updating of geo-covers.

    The new version of the program is available on the site in the Download section.

  • 14.07.2017 For GIS Panorama Mini the new tools for import and visualization of spatial data are developed
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama Mini" version 12.5.0 for the x64 platform is developed. In the new version of the program the tools for import and visualization of spatial data are updated. In the converter of digital vector maps from SHP format there is added a support of import of a folders tree with SHP files, with the automatic formation of sheets and map layers in national division and coordinate systems, with the assignment of conventional symbols by alphanumeric code in any national language encoded in UTF. The task "Import of navigational data from GPX files" is improved. The program allows to load simultaneously several files in format GPX onto one map. This will save operator time on converting data.

    Support of local database SQLite for display of raster data in the form of tiles is implemented. There is added a restriction of the displayed geoportal area, set by the user in the settings file wmslist_en.xml. Support of local SQLite database provides also display of the matrix data about terrain in the hmp format and the execution of all kinds of computational tasks related with heights (construction of profiles, visibility zones, estimation of elevation, calculation of ground volumes, 3D modeling and other tasks). There is added a support for zip archives, encrypted by a user password, at performing the operations of opening the data sets (vector maps, images, matrices) and updating the open data. If the zip archive is encrypted, the user will be prompted to enter a password to access the data.


    The task of "Map Editor" has been improved. New objects are located on the map at once, taking into account the order of the layers displaying specified in the classifier, without additional sorting of the map. To manage the order of recording objects on the map when sorting the map, a service file with the SIN extension is formed. If the SIN file was not created, then the objects are written to the map in the order of their type (polygon, linear, etc.). The mode "Creation of group of objects by coordinates from a text file" is modified. There is added the possibility to build orthodrome by the coordinates of the file MET - an arc on the Earth's surface, passing through the shortest distance between the given points. To execute the task in a text file with the .MET extension, you need the presence of the #ORTHODROME service field and two lines with the coordinates of the starting and ending points of the created object - the arc. At large distances (thousands of kilometers), the points of the arc are formed with a step of no more than 0.4 degrees, for small distances - no more than 10 kilometers, which ensures the determination of lengths and angles with triangulation accuracy of 1 class.

    New property "Save time and date of object update" is added in the dialog of creating a new map. If the map is created with the specified property, then into each object, when creating and editing, service semantics are automatically recorded with the date and time of the performed operation and with the name of the operator that performed the operation. The specified property can not be disabled. Support of the pseudo-conical equal-projection of Bonn (EPSG:9827) is added. The new projection can be selected for maps of the Geographical type.

    In the "Classifier Editor" in the "Layers" bookmark, there is added the ability to set the order of displaying objects within a given layer (the button "Objects order"). It allows to unite layers of the same-type in the classifier which have been entered earlier for management of order of objects display. Flexible setting of the classifier simplifies the preparation of libraries of conventional symbols according to the requirements adopted in the national mapping systems of different countries. There is added the accounting for multipolygons when searching for objects by a given area, taking into account the occurrence, intersection, location at a given distance.

    XML format is used for storage of conditions of search and display of map objects in files with "vclx" extension in the "\Log" folders. This simplifies the work with program settings from external applications. The dialogue "Select object" is refined. On the "Metric" bookmark a map window has been added with the ability to display the section with the current point of the object's metric. This allows you to view the contours of extended objects and to correct the coordinates of points without leaving the dialog.

    Due to multi-threaded processing on a multi-core processor, the execution time of operations on lists of objects is reduced by 6-8 times - a search for intersections, occurrences, location at a given distance, and so on. Speed of constructing the list of the found objects is increased in 2-3 times. The sorting of multi-sheet maps (MAP) is accelerated by 3-4 times. When sorting map objects, the order of displaying objects in the layer is taken into account.

    In the program the dialog "Image color adjustment" was refined, which is called via the menu item "Options\Colors" in tasks of "Data lists" or "Map legend". There is implemented the possibility of creating and editing a set of the user palettes to control the displaying the matrixes of terrain elevation that were added into the document.


    The new version of the program is available for download in the Download section.

  • 13.07.2017 GIS WebService SE for the CentOS operating system expands the tools for building a 3D model of spatial data
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebService SE version 11.4.0 is developed for server operating system CentOS 7.2. In the new version of service the tools for building three-dimensional models of spatial data formed by means of GIS WebServer SE are expanded.

    3D model provides an opportunity to work and to view information layers from the geospatial data base and remote sensing data for analysis and decision making at designing. 3D surface is displayed in accordance with the terrain. Detailed models can contain three-dimensional objects corresponding to objects of a two-dimensional map. In new version of GIS WebServer SE the ability is added to automatically change the composition of the displayed three-dimensional objects depending on the scale of the map display. Animation of moving and continuous display of 3D maps are implemented at movement along equator.

    In the new version, the speed and reliability of the service in the mode of round-the-clock operation is increased. By means of the built-in self-diagnostics the service allows to identify and eliminate failures that occur at processing the incorrect data or lack of server resources. These possibilities increase the reliability and fault tolerance of the application, and also speed up the search for errors and decision-making by the service administrator to change the server hardware resources. In order that the administrator could quickly find the necessary information about service's work, into the module of remote administration the tools are added for viewing the log with possibility of events filtration.

    There is accelerated the process of updating images of vector maps which are issued by WMS protocol, at intensive editing of maps objects on the GIS Server. For example, at displaying tracks of movement of vehicles the updating of vector data is carried out in parallel with drawing a current state. It reduces time of synchronisation of changing the object state and the output of the updated picture.

    In the new version of the program a support of multipolygons is added. This type of object allows you to combine several individual polygon objects into one. Use of multipolygons will allow to avoid duplication of semantic characteristics, reducing the overall amount of information, to unite objects of the same type, reducing quantity of spatially-logic links and simplifying process of visual perception of objects (for example, the Kuril Islands, borders of the states and others).

    The parameters of queries by the WFS standard are extended. The ability to display graphic objects and information about the relative and absolute height of the object is added. The possibility of forming a map legend with transparency is added.

    GIS WebService SE implements support for a single geoinformation space, providing transmission and display of spatial data located on the GIS Server, according to international standards of OGC WFS, WFS-T, WMS, WMTS, WCS. The program provides the ability to issue tiles by spatial data for any user or local coordinate system. The application is compatible with Apache, IIS and nginx web-servers.

    A new version of the program is available on the web-site in the Download section.

  • 12.07.2017 GIS "Operator" provides construction of a highly accurate digital terrain model of a single geoinformation space based on laser scanning data
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Operator" of version 12.5.0 for power structures is developed. The program provides support for a single geoinformation space based on building a network architecture managed by spatial data servers (GIS Server) and application servers (GIS WebService SE). As a source of geospatial data the Databank of digital maps and remote sensing data can be applied.

    In the new version, the speed of requesting and updating data from the GIS Server has been increased for providing collective work in a network with maps of the terrain and operational situation for the planning and management of troops and weapons. The ruler of sources of the data has been expanded that are used for formation of terrain elevation matrixes and execution of computational tasks related with heights (construction of profiles, visibility zones, estimation of elevation, calculation of ground volumes, 3D modeling).

    The task "Navigator 3D" is refined. Into it the new mode "Cloud of points" is added which provides displaying the data of laser scanning of terrain in three-dimensional model. As one of sources of the data of laser scanning, the dense digital model of a surface is used that was created by software PHOTOMOD DenseDSM of the Rakurs company. The model, calculated on the basis of many types of input data using the method SGM (Semi-Global Matching), simplifies the creation of three-dimensional urban high-resolution models and can be loaded into the GIS "Panorama" for displaying in two-dimensional and three-dimensional form, vectoring, constructions of profiles and execution of other calculation tasks. The digital model of a surface comes in LAS-files. The data of the terrain's laser scanning is downloaded from LAS-files and stored as MTD-models.

    The new "Cloud of points" mode allows you to display in a three-dimensional form a cloud of points of any volume. If the points have not only high-altitude, but also the color data, this data is also used for 3D-displaying. Otherwise, the model is displayed in the colors of the altitude palette. The model of a cloud of points can be displayed in the original form or its data are included into the terrain mapping.

    In the new version of the program the converter of digital vector maps from SHP format has been improved. It supports the import of a folders tree with SHP files, with the automatic formation of sheets and map layers in national division and coordinate systems, with the assignment of conventional symbols by alphanumeric code in any national language encoded in UTF.

    In the "Classifier Editor" in the "Layers" bookmark, there is added the ability to set the order of displaying objects within a given layer (the button "Objects order"). It allows to unite layers of the same-type in the classifier which have been entered earlier for management of order of objects display. Flexible setting of the classifier simplifies the preparation of libraries of conventional symbols according to the requirements adopted in the national mapping systems of different countries.

    The sorting of multi-sheet maps (MAP) is accelerated by 3-4 times due to multi-threaded processing on multi-core processors. When sorting map objects, the order of displaying objects in the layer is taken into account.

    The task "Import of navigational data from GPX files" is improved. The program allows to load simultaneously several files in format GPX onto one map. This will save operator time on converting data.

    In the program the dialog "Image color adjustment" was refined, which is called via the menu item "Options\Colors" in tasks of "Data lists" or "Map legend". There is implemented the possibility of creating and editing a set of the user palettes to control the displaying the matrixes of terrain elevation that were added into the document.

  • 05.07.2017 In "Panorama-editor" the technology of automated generalization of topographic maps for obtaining high-quality multiscale maps is improved
    In KB "Panorama" a professional vectorizer "Panorama-Editor" version 12.5 was developed. In the new version, the "Automated generalization of topographic maps" task has been refined. A new mode "Setting the range of roads visibility" was added. This mode is designed to simplify an overloaded road network at transition to smaller scales of maps. At compression of the map image the density of objects per unit of the area of a map increases. Linear objects of the road network begin to paint each other and adjacent polygonal map objects (blocks and industrial objects). The new mode allows you to save all objects of the road network, including streets and driveways in the derived map. The task is designed for processing topographic terrain maps in the scale from 1:25 000 up to 1: 1 000 000. This method allows to realise the multiscale maps providing the qualitative image in several scales, and also to raise degree of automation of processes of drawing up and the issuing maps of smaller scales. The converter of digital vector maps from SHP format has been improved. It supports the import of a folders tree with SHP files, with the automatic formation of sheets and map layers in national division and coordinate systems, with the assignment of conventional symbols by alphanumeric code in any national language encoded in UTF.

    In the "Classifier Editor" in the "Layers" bookmark, there is added the ability to set the order of displaying objects within a given layer (the button "Objects order"). It allows to unite layers of the same-type in the classifier which have been entered earlier for management of order of objects display. Flexible setting of the classifier simplifies the preparation of libraries of conventional symbols according to the requirements adopted in the national mapping systems of different countries.

    The sorting of multi-sheet maps (MAP) is accelerated by 3-4 times due to multi-threaded processing on multi-core processors. When sorting map objects, the order of displaying objects in the layer is taken into account.

    The task "Import of navigational data from GPX files" is improved. The program allows to load simultaneously several files in format GPX onto one map. This will save operator time on converting data.

    In the complex of geodesy calculations there is implemented the storage and editing of data on documents that establish the category of land, the type of permitted use and the address of land use not only for the formed, but also for the specified, changeable and original sites. Screen elements are added for entering and editing information about a natural object. The procedure for analyzing the initial data specified by the user for the formation of the scheme for the location of the land plot on the cadastral plan of the territory was automated.

    In the program the dialog "Image color adjustment" was refined, which is called via the menu item "Options\Colors" in tasks of "Data lists" or "Map legend". There is implemented the possibility of creating and editing a set of the user palettes to control the displaying the matrixes of terrain elevation that were added into the document.

    In the task of "Check of vector map quality" the output of report documents into the HTML-file is added. Outputting reports into HTML file allows you to generate reporting documents without using office programs. There is added the ability to run several instances of GIS "Panorama-Editor" for execution of control of various vector maps with the issuance of reports into HTML format (a report into MS Word is executed only from one program).

    The new version of the program is available for download in the Download section.

  • 04.07.2017 The speed of multi-user access to geo-spatial databases has been increased in the GIS Server
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS Server version 7.3 is developed. The new version increases the speed of access to large arrays of information in spatial databases. This is achieved by the flexible configuration of data caching and the possibility of cache distribution over disk arrays.

    The program provides caching of information from a spatial database in the form of a cartographic representation already in established conventional symbols. This allows you to maximize the speed of multi-user access to this data. In the new version, for each GIS Server connection with the geo-spatial database, a separate directory can be assigned in the disk space for cache placing. This approach allows the server administrator to flexibly distribute the load to the disk subsystem.

    The GIS Server allows not to reread from the database the previously received information and stored in the cache, even if this information has not been accessed for a while by any server client, or even if the GIS Server has been restarted. If data logging is available in the database, the GIS Server updates the data in the cache only in the part of the data that has changed since the previous access to the spatial data base. Logging of operations is carried out using an additional table in the database - "Log of data changes". The period of poll by GIS Server of the table of changes log is installed by the manager in program settings.

    If the logging of operations is not performed in the spatial database, then the GIS Server must update the entire cache. To minimize the time and resource costs required for this operation, the new version introduces the notion of "time of data relevance". Now the cartographic representation generated by the original data set (geospatial database table or SQL query) is not recreated until the established interval of relevance of the received data has expired, even if during this period the operating system or the GIS Server was restarted. After the time of data relevance expires, the cartographical representation will be automatically re-configured if there are active connections to this data set on the GIS Server. If no one is connected to the dataset and the data timeliness has expired, the cartographic view will be re-formed at the first access of the user to this set. The relevance time for the data set of the spatial database is determined by the administrator of the Server GIS based on what spatial information is contained in this set, how much and how often it is updated for the server's clients.

    GIS Server provides remote access to vector maps, remote sensing data, matrices, documents and spatial databases. There is supported a multilevel connection of servers among themselves for the distributed storage and processing of spatial data with automatic replication, backup and data protection. The program gives users the opportunity to make changes to geo-spatial data bases through the graphical interface of GIS "Panorama" by means of editing digital terrain maps. In this case, the GIS Server monitors the changes in these databases, performed by any external applications.

    The new version of the program is available for download on the Download page.

  • 30.06.2017 GIS WebServer SE uses an interactive globe model to display geospatial data
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebServer SE version 3.3 is developed. In the new version the component of three-dimensional model of a map was updated. The 3D model provides an opportunity to work and to view information layers from the geospatial data base and remote sensing data for analysis and decision making at designing. 3D surface is displayed in accordance with the terrain. Detailed models can contain three-dimensional objects corresponding to objects of a two-dimensional map.

There is added the ability to customize the boundaries for displaying 3D objects by scale.

    The web applications development tool the GIS WebToolKit SE has been refined, which extends the capabilities of GIS WebServer SE and can be integrated into other information systems. Access to data (images, vector maps and terrain information) is provided by Web services using common OGC protocols and ISO standards. Service GIS WebService SE (OGC WMS/WMTS) provides spatial information in the form of graphic images. As digital model of a relief the various kinds of high-altitude data are used: matrixes (in formats SRTM, GeoTIFF, IMG, MTW), TIN-models, a cloud of points and others. At request there is carried out the automatic sample of the most accurate data onto the specified terrain site with a given resolution. To transfer data of the digital terrain model to the Web, the WCS protocol is used. The relief data are represented as tiles and are cached on the client.

    As a source of spatial data, the Data bank of digital maps and remote sensing data can be. It provides the collection, storage, search and delivery of spatial data in exchange formats, a displaying the state of the data bank in the form of maps-schemes, the automated formation and updating of geo-covers.

    GIS WebServer SE is used in the construction of closed corporate systems to ensure the protection of data having a security classification or a trade secret.

  • 29.06.2017 ImageryCreator provides formation of tiles files Big Data in MBTiles format
    In KB "Panorama" the ImageryCreator version 9.1 is developed. The new version of the program allows you to create tiles in the SQLite database format - MBTiles. The advantage of this method of storage of tiles compared with storage of tiles in the form of separate files in system consists in saving of a space on a hard disk. All data is stored in a single database file. Tiles in MBTiles format on average take up to 30% less space on the hard disk. The speed of access to the tile in the SQLite database in the Windows system is comparable to the speed of access to the file directly. Use of the MBTiles format will simplify and speed up the process of transferring tiles between servers and hard disks. In order to optimize the use of free space on the hard disk, the program analyzes the size of the created tiles and does not store tiles that do not contain information (empty data). The new version supports the cutting of tiles with numbering for the TMS standard.

    The program allows you to create tiles in the formats JPEG, PNG, PNG8 and MBTiles according to the international standard OGC WMTS 07-057r7 version 1.0.0 and the TMS standard. Tile data generated by the ImageryCreator program is used by software of GIS WebServer SE, GIS WebService SE to provide high-speed query execution for displaying spatial data over large areas while simultaneously accessing a large number of users.

  • 27.06.2017 GIS WebServer AGRO provides a remote management of resource-saving farming technologies
    Resource-saving agriculture is not only a change in the way of basic tillage, but a whole system that reduces production costs while improving soil fertility. Agrarian GIS on the basis of "Panorama AGRO" provides the accumulation of a large amount of spatial data characterizing the contours of agricultural lands and local conditions of soil fertility in a single database of the agricultural holding. GIS WebServer AGRO as part of the agrarian GIS of agrarian holding's provides remote access to an unlimited number of layers of spatial data and attributive information about the contours of arable land, individual segments of the field, agricultural producers' facilities and the infrastructure of the agro-industrial complex of the region located in the information base.

    GIS WebServer AGRO version 2.2 is developed in KB "Panorama". In the new version the speed and reliability of work is increased at processing of a large number of cartographical layers and execution of long search requests. As sources of spatial data, GIS WebServer AGRO uses maps from the agricultural holding database published by cartographical service the GIS WebService SE and the geoinformation layers connected from external sources of the Internet (for example, satellite imagery from the Kosmosnimki portal or land boundaries from the Public Cadastral Service Map "). When the layers of the agricultural holding are located on the GIS Server, the coordinate description of the accounting objects of the agro-holding in industrial DBMS is maintained. In new version of GIS WebServer AGRO there is added the possibility to make direct changes into semantic characteristics of the spatial data characterising the contours of fields and other objects of the account of an agricultural producer, without using the special tool of map editing.

    GIS WebServer AGRO allows you to use the full range of data needed for resource-saving technologies: satellite monitoring of crops, soil sampling points, soil fertility maps, application of GLONASS/GPS tools to monitor field progress and yield mapping, preparation for differential application of fertilizers, support of data collection from unmanned aerial vehicles, monitoring of vehicles and agricultural machinery, and others.

    You can see an example of the work of GIS WebServer AGRO on the page of the demonstration project the "Agroportal".

  • 23.06.2017 GIS "Panorama" developed a technology for applying laser scanning data from various sources to build a highly accurate digital terrain model
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" version 12.5 is developed. In the new version of the program, the task "Navigator 3D" is refined. Into it the new mode "Cloud of points" is added which provides displaying the data of laser scanning of terrain in three-dimensional model. As one of sources of the data of laser scanning, the dense digital model of a surface is used that was created by software PHOTOMOD DenseDSM of the Rakurs company. The model, calculated on the basis of many types of input data using the method SGM (Semi-Global Matching), simplifies the creation of three-dimensional urban high-resolution models and can be loaded into the GIS "Panorama" for displaying in two-dimensional and three-dimensional form, vectoring, constructions of profiles and execution of other calculation tasks. The digital model of a surface comes in LAS-files. The data of the terrain's laser scanning is downloaded from LAS-files and stored as MTD-models.

    The new "Cloud of points" mode allows you to display in a three-dimensional form a cloud of points of any volume. If the points have not only high-altitude, but also the color data, this data is also used for 3D-displaying. Otherwise, the model is displayed in the colors of the altitude palette. The model of a cloud of points can be displayed in the original form or its data are included into the terrain mapping.

    In the task the "Automated generalization of topographic maps" a new mode "Setting the range of roads visibility" was added. This mode is designed to simplify an overloaded road network at transition to smaller scales of maps. At compression of the map image the density of objects per unit of the area of a map increases. Linear objects of the road network begin to paint each other and adjacent polygonal map objects (blocks and industrial objects). The new mode allows you to save all objects of the road network, including streets and driveways in the derived map. The task is designed for processing topographic terrain maps in the scale from 1:25 000 up to 1: 1 000 000. This method allows to realise the multiscale maps providing the qualitative image in several scales, and also to raise degree of automation of processes of drawing up and the issuing maps of smaller scales.

    The converter of digital vector maps from SHP format has been improved. It supports the import of a folders tree with SHP files, with the automatic formation of sheets and map layers in national division and coordinate systems, with the assignment of conventional symbols by alphanumeric code in any national language encoded in UTF.

    In the "Classifier Editor" in the "Layers" bookmark, there is added the ability to set the order of displaying objects within a given layer (the button "Objects order"). It allows to unite layers of the same-type in the classifier which have been entered earlier for management of order of objects display. Flexible setting of the classifier simplifies the preparation of libraries of conventional symbols according to the requirements adopted in the national mapping systems of different countries.

    The sorting of multi-sheet maps (MAP) is accelerated by 3-4 times due to multi-threaded processing on multi-core processors. When sorting map objects, the order of displaying objects in the layer is taken into account.

    The complex of geodesy calculations is improved. There is implemented the storage and editing of data on documents that establish the category of land, the type of permitted use and the address of land use not only for the formed, but also for the specified, changeable and original sites. Screen elements are added for entering and editing information about a natural object. The procedure for analyzing the initial data specified by the user for the formation of the scheme for the location of the land plot on the cadastral plan of the territory was automated.

    The task "Import of navigational data from GPX files" is improved. The program allows to load simultaneously several files in format GPX onto one map. This will save operator time on converting data.

    The program has refined the dialog "Image color adjustment", which is called via the menu item "Options\Colors" in tasks of "Data lists" or "Map legend". There is added the possibility of creating and editing a set of the user palettes to control the displaying the matrixes of terrain elevation that were added into the document.

    In the task of "Check of vector map quality" the output of report documents into the HTML-file is added. Outputting reports into HTML file allows you to generate reporting documents without using office programs. There is added the ability to run several instances of GIS "Panorama" for execution of control of various vector maps with the issuance of reports into HTML format (a report into MS Word is executed only from one program).

    The new version of the program is available for download in the Download section.

  • 01.06.2017 GIS Server SE provides direct multiuser access to the geospatial databases in the form of maps in the specified conventional symbols
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS Server SE of version 7.1.7 is developed for CentOS OS. In the new version, a direct connection to geospatial data bases is implemented for viewing and editing the tables in the form of maps in given conventional symbols. Databases managed by DBMS PostgreSQL with PostGIS extension are supported.

    In the new version of the program the user has an opportunity to make changes to databases through the graphic interface of the GIS "Panorama" client by tools of editing digital terrain maps. If you change the coordinates of the objects, the fields of the Geometry type in the database table will change, and when the semantics change, the fields with attributive data of objects will change.

    GIS Server SE monitors changes of the connected geospatial databases and automatically updates their image in the specified conventional symbols. Changes can be made by any external applications by execution of SQL queries. To track changes into the database an auxiliary table is added - a change log and a trigger for filling it. For forced updating of the image of the connected geospatial databases the combination of keys CTRL-F5 is applied.

    Parameters of displaying a database in the form of a map (table, data presentation or SQL-query)) are saved on the server in a file with DBM extension having XML structure. Administration of connection to databases is built-in into the general interface of administration the GIS Server SE. Examples of DBM files for connecting database tables on the Internet are included into the program installation.

    The means of connection to the database the GIS Server SE include the capabilities of the Spatial DB Service, however, the speed of image formation and updating has become much higher. In need of scaling the productivity at the expense of processing of several databases on different servers, it is expedient to use separate copies of service the Spatial DB Service. There is improved the reading of multipoligons from databases with the formation of multipoligons on the map (previously groups of individual objects were formed).

    The ability is added to specify a shared folder of documents for a virtual folder with vector maps. This eliminates the need to administer individual maps that can be created in virtual folders during the execution of different requests. At addition into semantics of objects of vector maps of references onto documents, they will be automatically saved in the shared folder.

At the expense of connection to the program GIS Server there is added the possibility of viewing and editing the databases operated by DBMS PostgreSQL or Oracle, by tools of editing digital terrain maps. If you change the coordinates of the objects, the fields of the Geometry type in the database table will change, and when the semantics change, the fields with attributive data of objects will change. GIS Server supports direct connection to geospatial data bases for viewing tables in the form of vector maps in specified conventional symbols. There is expanded a support of the local SQLite database for displaying terrain matrix data in hmp format and performing all kinds of computational tasks related to heights (construction of profiles, visibility zones, estimation of elevation, calculation of ground volumes, 3D modeling and other tasks).

    ZIP is added to the list of formats to be opened. If you select zip, it is automatically unpacked into the folder \Temp\Panorama.Cache\. Data opens in order of priority: the project of maps, vector maps, rasters, matrixes. This allows you to archive projects of the geodata, to copy and quickly to view. Data in archive opens on reading. After closing of the unpacked data they automatically are deleted. There is added a support for zip archives, encrypted by a user password, at performing the operations of opening the data sets (vector maps, images, matrices) and updating the open data. If the zip archive is encrypted, the user will be prompted to enter a password to access the data.

    In the program the task "Export of vector data to GML/JSON format" is improved. Possibility is added for saving the vector data into GeoJson format with taking into account the styles of displaying. In this case, into the file not only the geometry of objects is saved, but also their metadata and external view. The output file can be published in web by means of services the Leaflet, OpenLayers, 2gis, OpenStreetMap and others supporting GeoJson with styles.

    Due to multi-threaded processing on a multi-core processor, the execution time of operations on lists of objects is reduced by 6-8 times, displaying of rasters (imagery) of RSW format is accelerated in 3-5 times, a displaying the matrixes of heights of MTW format and matrixes of qualities of MTQ format is accelerated in 3-4 times. The evaluation is performed on an Intel i7 processor (4 real and 4 virtual cores).

    Transformation of list of raster files of RSW format is refined. Due to multi-threaded processing on a multi-core processor, the task execution time is reduced by 6-8 times (for 8 threads).

    Transforming the list of matrixes of heights of MTW format and matrixes of qualities of MTQ format is improved. Time of the task execution is reduced in 5-6 times (for 8 threads).
    The classifier 50t05g.engl.rsc of topographic maps of scale 1: 50 000 has been developed and added to the installation of the program. Classifier is a systematized list of code marks for elements and objects of the terrain, as well as characteristics characterizing the properties of these objects, in English.

    The program for loading and displaying the cloud of points (LAS) has been improved. Open binary format LAS is intended for storaging the records of points obtained by means of LIDAR locators (light detection and ranging) - the laser locators used for sounding of the sea and terrestrial surface.

    There is added a support for zip archives, encrypted by a user password, at performing the operations of opening the data sets (vector maps, images, matrices) and updating the open data. If the zip archive is encrypted, the user will be prompted to enter a password to access the data.

    The task for Export of vector data to formats DBF, XLS, TXT, CSV, HTM is refined. For saving the map's object characteristics the LENGTH and the AREA the choice of a unit of measure is expanded. In addition to meters and kilometers for calculating the length, millimeters on the map can be used, to calculate the area of the object - hectares. Established in dialog the units of measure of length and the area are remembered and restored at the subsequent starts of the task.

    New property "Save time and date of object update" is added in the dialog of creating a new map. If the map is created with the specified property, then into each object, when creating and editing, service semantics are automatically recorded with the date and time of the performed operation and with the name of the operator that performed the operation.

    Support of the pseudo-conical equal-projection of Bonn (EPSG:9827) is added. The new projection can be selected for maps of the Geographical type.

    The toolkit of development of Web-applications the GIS WebToolKit SE has been improved, which expands possibilities of GIS WebServer SE and can be integrated into other information systems.

    A new mechanism for managing interactive modes simplifies the development of tasks. Access to data (images, vector maps and terrain information) is provided by Web services using common OGC protocols and ISO standards. Service GIS WebService SE (OGC WMS/WMTS) provides spatial information in the form of graphic images. As digital model of a relief the various kinds of high-altitude data are used: matrixes (in formats SRTM, GeoTIFF, IMG, MTW), TIN-models, cloud of points and others. At request there is carried out the automatic sample of the most accurate data onto the specified terrain site with a given resolution. To transfer data of the digital terrain model to the Web, the WCS protocol is used. The relief data are represented as tiles and are cached on the client.

    GIS WebServer SE is used in the construction of closed corporate systems to ensure the protection of data having a security classification or a trade secret. GIS WebServer SE is certified for Level 2 of absence of undeclared capabilities. The new version of the program expands the application's capabilities in solving problems of analysis, management and long-term planning of the territories development. GIS WebServer SE is implemented using the toolkit of GIS WebToolKit SE, which can be used in development tools that use the JavaScript.

  • 07.02.2017 A new generation of GIS "Operator" for power structures is developed
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Operator" x64 version 12 is developed. The new version of the program can quickly display and manipulate geodatabase of large volumes together with rasters, matrices and data of geoportals by using all available RAM and multi-threaded performance of programs on multi-core processors. Displaying of rasters (imagery) of RSW format is accelerated in 3-5 times. In 3-4 times there is accelerated displaying the matrixes of heights of MTW format and matrixes of qualities of MTQ format. Speed of constructing the reduced copies of rasters and matrixes after procedures of import or compression of data is increased at 10-15 time. Transformation of the list of raster files of RSW format is accelerated by 6-8 times. A transforming the list of matrixes of heights of MTW format and matrixes of qualities of MTQ format is accelerated by 5-6 times. Assessment is made on the Intel i7 processor, compared to the version 11.

    Display and editing of spatial databases managed by the DBMS PostgreSQL, Oracle, or MS SQL Server, is provided through a connection to the GIS Server version 7.х.

    New task the "Report Editor is added that allows to create and print the documents, including maps, graphics, multi-line text with different attributes, embedded Office documents and tables, out-of-frame designing, coordinate grids and other elements. Printing the entire report or just the current page is performed by one mouse click. The generated report can be saved to disk for later creation on its basis of similar reports. Into the titles text there is included a support for keywords #date, #.date and #time, which at displaying text are automatically replaced with the current date (DD/MM/YYYY or DD.MM.YYYY) and time (HH: MM: CC). Titles with the specified key words can be used, in particular, when printing maps to fix the date and time of image formation.
    For example, the title with the text "Current date: #date #time" can be displayed as text "Current date: 25/08/2016 19:00:15", and the title with the text "Current date: #.date #time - as the text "Current date: 25.08.2016 19:00:15". In the task "Map Computer" there is modified the mode "Information about the object". The mode allows you to collect the data about the terrain object consisting of a great number of separate parts, by the object identifier (the road number, the river name and so forth). Into the dialog the options are added which allow you to collect the object from parts of different layers (for example, highway in the layer of road net and the main streets in the layer of settlements) that allows to receive more complete information about the object in general and the distribution of properties (semantics) by individual parts.

    There is added a possibility of collecting the data about object not only in a multisheet map (MAP), but also in the project (MPT) of maps set (SIT, SITX), having the identical classifier. In the dialog box "Select object" there is changed the algorithm for calculating the area of the objects having extent on a longitude more than 5 degrees. Error of calculations makes about 1/10 000 from the object area. The extended accuracy of calculation of the area is provided at a selecting the "Clarify the area and length" in the menu "Options" and a choice in Select Object dialog in the pop-up menu for item "Accuracy of coordinates display" of the value "Extended". Membership of units of measure is expanded at displaying the angles between the sides of the object and azimuths. Into dialog "Measurement of distances (building orthodrome)" and into the mode "Line length" there are added the units of measure of corners: protractor divisions, angular miles and rumb. In the mode "Line length" to set the desired unit of angles measure it is necessary in the menu by the right mouse button to choose the appropriate item.

    Into the main panel of the program there is added a call of the new universal mode the Mark objects by arbitrary area. Selecting objects is performed by the area bounded by a closed loop, which is being built in several ways: rectangle, polygon, and an arbitrary area (lasso). The choice of the method of constructing a closed loop is performed automatically and depends on the user's actions. For example, to select objects by a polygon the specifying the points of a polygon is performed by pressing the left mouse button. When you select objects by the frame to indicate the rectangular frame itself, you must click the left mouse button and while holding it, start moving the mouse diagonally. To select objects by arbitrary area (lasso), press the left mouse button and while holding it, start moving around the selected area. To end the mode, release the mouse button. In the task the "Navigator 3D" there is implemented a constructing the 3D-model of relief and surface objects by a cloud of points. Cloud of point is the result of laser scanning of terrain, obtained by laser radar LIDAR (LIght Detection And Ranging). "Navigator 3D" task allows to carry out construction of two types of models (solid and nodal). Construction of solid model is recommended for demonstration of regular models of a relief (matrixes of elevations) and the cloud of points containing mainly points of the terrain relief. Construction of nodal model is recommended for demonstration of a cloud of the points containing points of the terrain relief, buildings, vegetation and other terrain objects.

    Into the list of opened formats of the new version of the GIS "Operator" software there is added ZIP archive. When you select ZIP it is automatically unpacked. Data opens in order of priority: maps project, vector maps, rasters, matrixes. This allows you to archive geodata projects, to copy and quickly to view. The data in the archive are opened for reading. After closing of the unpacked data they automatically are deleted.

    In the menu File\New\Map there is implemented the ability of the automated creation and addition to an open vector map of the list of user maps in sit or sitx format. For creation of maps it is enough to enter only the list of maps names or to paste the list from a clipboard. Parametres of coordinate system are automatically set from the open map.

    The task of "Connecting geoportals" is improved. In the new version the list of geoportals layers is expanded. For the geoportal of Rosreestr there is added a new layer of the "Zone with special conditions of using territories". Support is added for projections: Stereographic, and Double Stereographic EPSG:9809. The view of dialogue windows and panels of tools is improved. Variable size of the buttons allows you to create the most convenient view of the main window for any screen resolution. Customization is carried out in the menu of Options\Buttons size. The program interface is implemented in Unicode supporting all language standards.

The output file can be published in web by means of leaflet, openlayers, 2gis, openstreetmap and other applications supporting GeoJson with styles.

    In the dialog box "Select object" there is changed the algorithm for calculating the area of the objects having extent on a longitude more than 5 degrees. Extended objects are cut by strips in UTM projection, no more than 5 degrees on a longitude. The total area of objects is calculated by conventional zones and summed. The extended accuracy of calculation of the area is provided at a selecting the "Extended" value in the pop-up menu for item "Accuracy of coordinates display".

    Converter from SHP format is improved. There is added support for file names, field names and attribute values in the national encoding. There is added an automatic identification of a set name and an object of the classifier (by key or name).

    There is added the ability to create a new classifier with the subsequent primary automatic classification of objects and characteristics (automatic addition into the classifier of absent semantics and types of objects). Displaying rasters with cutting the images by a frame is improved. Accuracy of the image cut for different scale display is improved. It allows at scaling to display more precisely a mosaic of rasters without discrepancies and imposing the images of the adjacent rasters. New implementation of forming the images of the reduced raster copies allows to improve details of the compressed image.

    Possibility is added for opening of rasters from GIS Server which are generated from GeoTIFF format without copying the image into RSW file (multispectral multichannel rasters displayed through the GDAL library).

    There is increased the speed of building the reduced copies of raster images after import of graphic files or procedures of data compression. Time of building the pyramid of reduced images inside RSW file is reduced by 10-15 times at the expense of multi-threading processing on multi-core processors.

    Parametres of requests by WFS standard are expanded. There is added the possibility of display of graphic objects and the information on relative and absolute height of object. Records format of errors' log of service's work is changed. Codes of errors are described in the documentation. For convenience of the log's analysis into the module of remote administration of service the tools are added for viewing the log with possibility of events filtration.

    GIS WebServiсe SE supports all international standards (OGC WFS, WFS-T, WMS, WMTS, WCS) with which help the transmission and display of spatial data is carried out. The application has the possibility of issuing tiles for any user or local coordinate system. The application is implemented on Windows and Linux platforms, is compatible with the Apache web-server, IIS, nginx.

    The new version of the program is available for download in the Download section.

  • 10.01.2017 Maps of Moscow and the Moscow Region on the geoportal "Bank of spatial data" are updated
    Geoportal "Bank of spatial data" updated the maps of Moscow and the Moscow region formed according to OpenStreetMap data. In the data obtained from the GIS-Lab site there are updated objects related to human settlements, road networks, hydrography and vegetation.

    For work with the received map it is possible to use the program of GIS Panorama Mini or other software products of KB "Panorama".

    Publishing of updates in bank of spatial data is made by using the program of Databank of digital maps and remote sensing data.

    Publishing contents of bank of spatial data on the geoportal and data access for downloading are implemented by means of GIS WebServer SE.

    Free maps on the basis of OpenStreetMap data are available for download on the page "Digital maps and images".

  • 07.01.2017 GIS WebServer SE displays terrain objects in the three-dimensional view
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebServer SE version 2.8 is developed. In the new version of the program in the mode of "3D Map View" the display of objects in a three-dimensional form is implemented. The mode allows to build and display in real time in the browser not only three-dimensional model of the Earth's surface, but also terrain objects in a volumetric form. Three-dimensional display of objects can be set for any map layer. Models of objects can be obtained from library of three-dimensional symbols or have a graphic view by default. Parameters of the view by default, for example, color, height are customised in the Administration module. There are provided a movement throughout the territory of the Earth, zoom, rotate and tilt model, a choosing sources of the data. Moving and scaling of a two-dimensional and three-dimensional view of the map are synchronised.

    Access to the data (to the images, vector maps and information on the terrain) Web-services provide according to conventional OGC protocols and ISO standards. Service of the GIS WebService SE (OGC WMS/WMTS) provides the spatial information in the form of graphic images. As digital model of a relief the various kinds of elevation data are used: matrixes (in formats SRTM, GeoTIFF, IMG, MTW), TIN-models, a cloud of points and others. At request there is carried out the selection of the most accurate data on a predetermined portion of the terrain with the specified resolution. To send the data of digital model of the relief to the Web the WCS protocol is used. Data of the relief are presented in the form of tiles and are cached on the client.

    GIS WebServer SE is used in the construction of private enterprise systems to ensure protection of data having security classification or trade secrets. GIS WebServer SE is certified to Level 2 of undeclared capabilities absence. The new version of the program extends the application's possibilities in solving problems of the analysis, management and forward planning of territories development. GIS WebServer SE is implemented with use of toolkit the GIS WebToolKit SE which can be applied in the development tools using the JavaScript.

    The new version of the program, the documentation and presentation are available on the website in the Download section.
