Multilingual GIS Panorama Mini allows in the mode near to real time to track the movement of aircrafts


In KB "Panorama" the GIS Panorama Mini version 12.6.0 for the x64 platform is developed with an interface in English, French and Spanish. In the new version a support of the geoportal is added for realisation of monitoring the movement of aircraft. Geoportal "Monitoring the Air Traffic" uses the public web service Flightradar24 allowing in real time to observe of position of aircrafts, being in air. The tracking with the help of service the position of the aircraft is possible only if it is equipped with a transponder of ADS-B type and that is switched on. An aircraft equipped with an ADS-B transponder, during the entire flight, approximately every second generates and sends into an air a broadcast, open radio message, which contains the actual data at the time of departure-its exact coordinates, current speed, altitude and other information. The service uses ADS-B receivers installed around the world that receive information from aircraft and send it to the Flightradar24 server. In order to improve the security of information exchange with geoportals, the ability to connect data via the https protocol is realized. The use of this protocol allows you to protect against attacks based on listening of a network connection.

There is added a support for zip-archives at opening the data sets (vector maps, images, matrices) and updating the open data. If the zip archive is encrypted, the user will be automatically prompted to enter a password to access the data. Into the task of importing a list of DIR map sheets into a multi-sheet MAP map, there is added a processing of ZIP files that can contain one or more files of one of the formats SXF, SHP/DBF, MIF/MID (in one archive one format is processed). Files of maps sheets can be grouped in folders.

Support for the SQLite database for pyramid tiles in Mbtiles format is implemented. Mbtiles format is used for storing tile data in one file. It ensures the rapid issuance of spatial information in accordance with the requested scale and territory. Satellite images in TIFF format can contain tens of gigabytes of information, which can lead to a slowdown in their display. To speed up the display and preserve the quality of the data, they are converted to the Mbtiles format. You can convert data into Mbtiles format using the Imagery Creator program.

Changes have been made to the main menu of the program. In the File menu, the Example data item is added, which allows you to quickly open maps, rasters and matrixes from the installation. In the Help menu, the Documentation item is added, where you can view documents from the operational documentation. In the Help menu, the Forum item is added for quick transition in the browser to the web forum, designed for communication and information exchange between users and developers of the program. Into the Help menu, the "Video lessons" item is added to quickly jump to the page of training videos in the browser.

GIS reference system was updated. The new help system is organized in the form of HTML-files that allows to display it in the usual browser.

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