The application of the GIS Panorama via the Internet became possible through cooperation with the Israeli company GeoCloud, which developed a cloud-based service that allows users to remotely access the software of the world's largest developers in the field of geoinformation technologies. The founders of the service adhere to the concept of hourly payment: users pay only for the time it takes to work. In addition, the greater the total time of using the services, the less is the cost of one hour of work.
For several months, in conjunction with GeoCloud technical experts, KB Panorama company has been working on setting-up of a virtual computer to make it as easy as possible for users to access the software. To run the GIS "Panorama" on a virtual computer, you will need to perform 5 simple steps that include registration on the GeoCloud website, selection of the GIS "Panorama" product in the provided list of programs, selection of the volume of the user data warehouse and replenishment of the balance in the cash account. In conclusion, it will only be necessary to start the virtual computer with a pre-installed GIS by clicking on the "Start" button.
The work in the GIS "Panorama" on the GeoCloud service is suitable for performing short-term tasks of spatial processing of data by specialized modes and functions that are not part of such branch geoinformation systems as "Workstation of the cadastral engineer", "Workstation of urban planner", "Workstation of agronomist" and others.
You can read the instruction for launching the GIS "Panorama" on the GeoCloud service in the Documentation section.
In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebService SE version 12.1.0 is developed for Windows and Linux operating systems. In the new version of service the application's architecture is improved. GIS WebService SE at the moment of receipt of the user requests forms virtual data handlers. With their help, the service manages the process of executing internal operations and evenly distributes the load across the system's cores depending on the capabilities of the server. At the first opening of data, GIS WebService SE in an automatic mode preliminary prepares them, sorting and indexing vector maps by means of trees. Changing the architecture allows you to increase the number of simultaneously processed user requests, improve stability at load, increase the throughput of the service and ensure the scalability of the server by further increasing the cores of the system.
The service operates around the clock and processes various types of spatial information (vector, raster and matrix data, point clouds, databases, three-dimensional information). GIS WebServiсe SE supports various types of operations: computing operations with objects, operations of objects search, overlay operations with objects, analytical operations with layers, construction of a road graph and the search for optimal routes, operations with XSD scheme and classifier, operations of creating the user data, operations of obtaining metadata, operations with the transaction log, service operations, work with the
The new version of the service allows you to work with three types of licenses: a fixed hardware license, a fixing license, a floating hardware license. The use of these types of licenses allows the user to choose the optimal variant of their server's work using a USB key or a binding to the server hardware.
GIS WebServiсe SE supports all international standards (OGC WFS, WFS-T, WMS, WMTS, WCS) through which the transmission and display of spatial data is carried out. The program provides the ability to issue tiles for any user or local coordinate system. The application is implemented on Windows and Linux platforms, compatible with Apache, IIS and nginx web servers.
In the map editor the mode of a merge of two identical map objects is added and the interface of the user is updated. At address search and search in Rosreestr for an address point the information on object is displayed at pointing the cursor of the mouse. Search by area is extended by the mode of manual input of the coordinates of the search area for more accurate selection of objects.
Possibilities of "Manager of map project " are expanded. The manager provides the ability to select data from the virtual folder of the map's project and update the composition of the map data layers according to the selection. The administration module has been updated. There is added the setting of permissions to use the project manager for the user groups.
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 the 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.

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
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.
