Imagery Creator creates Big Data spatial data arrays for geo-covers

01.08.2018

In KB "Panorama" the Imagery Creator version 9.5 is developed. In the new version of the program, the ability is added for creating spatial data arrays of Big Data by geo-covers, up to the whole territory of the Globe. To do this, Imagery Creator supports the format of GPKG (geopackage). It is an array of SQLite databases in which tiles are stored in formats of PNG, JPG, PNG8 or HMP. GPKG format allows to store not only spatial information in the form of tiles, but also digital information containing data about elevations (digital elevations matrixes). The advantage of this format is the rapid retrieval of information due to the matrix division of the entire Earth's surface into several databases. In addition, it provides access to spatial data Big Data onto the territory of the northern and southern poles. This is achieved by storing the information in the EPSG:4326 projection of the international matrix OGC GoogleCRS84Quad.

The program allows to form tiles in the formats JPEG, PNG, PNG8, Mbtiles and GPKG according to the international standard OGC WMTS 07-057r7 version 1.0.0 and the TMS standard. The tile data generated by the Imagery Creator program, is used by software the 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.

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