GIS "Panorama" x64 supports multi-sheet map with data compression in MAPZ and SITZ format


In KB "Panorama" is developed the GIS "Panorama" version 12.6.1 for the x64 platform. In the new version of the program the support is added for new data formats MAPZ and SITZ. Multi-sheet map and user map can be packed into one file with data compression. Packed multi-sheet map has a MAPZ extension, a packaged user map - SITZ. To increase the degree of compression, the accuracy of the object metric is automatically converted to centimeters. The volume of the packed data decreases approximately in 3 times in comparison with volume of initial data with the maximum accuracy of a metric. Unpacking of data is carried out automatically in memory in process of reading the corresponding sheets and objects from the packed formats. If the map sheet is located in memory entirely it is unpacked in a multithreaded mode at opening of sheet's data for access acceleration. The packed maps are accessible read-only. Conversion to SITZ and MAPZ format is performed in the task of Map Sorting. Formats SITX, SITZ, MAPZ can be converted back to the original SIT or MAP formats by sorting. Packed maps with the reverse converting retain the accuracy of the metric in centimeters.

"Map Sorting" task at a choice of accuracy of coordinates in cm saves flat coordinates of objects in integer centimeters. The size of the coordinates file is reduced in 2 times. The data format is compatible with versions of GIS Panorama 11.13.3 and higher. Task "Map compression by method of rounding coordinates" is removed from the tasks list, since it performed the same actions.

The task "Lists of objects" is refined. Into search by lists the option "Crossing and outside" is added. The option "Crossing and outside"allows you to find objects that are crossed or are located outside relative to objects of another list.There are expanded the possibilities of finding and marking the map objects by semantics in the "Search and mark" dialog. The list of semantics values and searching conditions can be grouped with specifying of logic conditions within groups and between groups - ALL ARE TRUE (AND) or AT LIST ONE IS TRUE (OR), that allows to create in an interactive mode the complex conditions of search for objects by value of their attributes.

Into the set of complex views of conventional symbols the function of displaying lines with variable length of dashes is added, which can be used to display linear drying-up and dry river beds when issuing topographic maps. Function is added into the library of programmable symbols Shape.iml. Samples of symbols of a new view are added into examples of data: File - Example data - Shape\shape.sitx.

Into the task "Classifier Editor" there is added a possibility of a saving a classifier palette into a text file. Palettes files can be used when setting up classifiers of different scales and modifications. There is added the ability of request and saving the list of the objects having the specified color palette. The resulting list allows you to check the correctness of the assigning the colors to objects, as well as to identify unused colors. In the object properties in the RSC classifier, the "Obsolete object" field is added. Obsolete objects by default do not appear in the list of objects in the "Object creation" dialog box, but can be included into the "Obsolete objects" field. This allows you to store objects in the RSC classifier from obsolete classifiers for compatibility, but hide them when creating and updating the map from the operator to facilitate the selection of allowed types of objects.

To speed up work with large regions (MAP maps containing more than 1000 sheets), when you import sheet lists into DIR, folders for every 1000 sheets are automatically created starting with the second one. The folders are named sheets_1000 (for sheets from 1000 to 1999), sheets_2000 (for sheets from 2000 to 2999), etc. The first thousand sheets are written in a folder together with the passport of the region map. For every 1000 sheets, 4-5 thousand files are created. Earlier versions of programs open such regions in the usual way, if they are from the same OS (MS Windows or Linux) with the program that created the large region.

The task "Import of GPS-coordinates in format NMEA 0183" is improved. Processing of RMC message is added at importing data by protocol NMEA 0183. The RMC message transmits the recommended minimum of navigation data and contains a set of so-called "PVT" data - "position, velocity, time" (position, speed, time).

In the main menu of the program in section "File - Import rasters or matrix from...", the menu item "Matrix GDAL" is added. The item is intended for execution of importing the matrixes of elevations and qualities from files of formats GeoTiff, IMG, DEM. The new version of the program is available for downloading in the Download section.
