16.01.2019A kit of geographic maps of scale 1: 1 000 000 is supplemented by map of the Democratic PeopleвЂ™s Republic of Korea KB "Panorama" prepared a digital geographical map of scale 1: 1 000 000 in format SXF onto the territory of the Democratic PeopleвЂ™s Republic of Korea. VMap0 data obtained according to information from the website www.gis-lab.info has served as source for map's preparation.
The map contains information about the quantity of inhabitants for cities and the names of settlements in Russian. As additional materials the World map of scale 1: 5 000 000 and data of OpenStreetMap were used. The map is led to the classifier of geographical maps of scale 1: 1 000 000 (1mogk13g.rsc). It can be used for the general estimation of the terrain and studying of an environment, an ensuring of educational process, as a basis for creation of geographical maps of smaller scale, thematic and special maps and solving other tasks.
The map is distributed free according to the free licence. Digital geographical map of scale 1: 1 000 000 in format SXF is available for downloading on page the "Digital maps and images".
11.01.2019Training materials in English are prepared for independent study of geoinformation systems of KB "Panorama" Specialists of KB "Panorama" for English-speaking users prepared a series of video lessons for working with GIS "Panorama". The training course of twelve lessons will tell you about the system tools for creating and editing maps, checking the quality of vector maps, performing calculations and building 3D models. To date, three video lessons are prepared and published.
From the first lesson, "Object creation tools", you will learn how to create and edit objects on a map. It will examine various ways to create new objects and fill in their characteristics.
In the second lesson, "Operations above points", modes are shown that allow you to edit the turning points of map objects. Also you learn about some functions for changing the topology of objects.
The third lesson "Classifier edition" is devoted to the creation and editing of a classification system of spatial objects and their attributes. The lesson shows you how to create layers of the classifier, objects of different types of localization and demonstrates the key possibilities for creating conventional symbols for map objects.
You can get acquainted with the training materials in English in the section "Video lessons".
03.01.2019GIS WebServer SE expands the possibilities of creating thematic maps based on a spatial database In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebServer SE version 4.3.2 is developed. In the new version the possibility of creating maps by database tables is added. The "Geocoding" component connects to the database, reads the coordinates of objects and creates point objects on the map. The result can be saved on the user's computer in GeoJSON format. In addition, geocoding parameters can be saved for future use. The "Geocoding" component is implemented as a plug-in, whose code can be used as an example for developing your own components.
In 3D map the possibility to select a route of motion in the "Free flying" mode is added. The route of movement can be pre-prepared or downloaded from a file from the user's computer.
The toolkit of developing the Web-applications the GIS WebToolKit SE has been improved, which expands possibilities 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 of GIS WebService SE (OGC WMS/WMTS) provides spatial information in the form of graphic images. Various types of high-altitude data are used as a digital elevation model: matrixes (in the formats SRTM, GeoTIFF, IMG, MTW), TIN-models, point cloud and others. At request the most accurate data onto a specified terrain site with a given resolution is automatically sampled. To transfer data of the digital terrain model to the Web, the WCS protocol is used. The relief data is represented as tiles and cached on the client.
As a source of spatial data, the Databank 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.
The new version of the program is available on the website in the Download section.
