In GIS "Operator" the tools of spatial modeling and analysis are expanded


In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Operator" version 12.6.2 for the x64 platform is developed. In the new version in the task "Navigator 3D", the list of formats of imported models is expanded for displaying exact and realistic three-dimensional models of infinitely large size in DB3D format. There is added a support for importing three-dimensional models from the Collada format to 3D-tiles of spatial data. COLLADA format is the international standard for an exchange of three-dimensional data. Models in this format can be obtained using such programs, as: PHOTOMOD, Maya, 3ds Max, MeshLab, CityScape, CityEngine, SketchUp, Blender, Poser (v.7.0), Lightwave 3D (version 9.5), Cinema 4D (MAXON), Softimage XSI, Houdini, modo and Strata 3D, Adobe Photoshop from version CS3 and others. The models loaded into the DB3D format can be used to build a three-dimensional model of the terrain together with other data sources: vector maps, space and aerial photographs, geoportals, point clouds, matrixes of elevations.

The support is added for new data formats MAPZ and SITZ. The multisheet map and the user map can be packed into one file with compression of data by ZIP-Deflate algorithm. Conversion to SITZ and MAPZ format is performed in the task "Map Sorting". To increase the degree of compression, the accuracy of the object metric is automatically converted to centimeters. Unpacking of data is carried out automatically in memory in process of reading the corresponding sheets and objects from the packed formats. The packed maps are accessible read-only. Reducing the amount of data allows you to speed up their transmission over communication channels.

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. Reading source files at import is performed by means of GDAL library. In the task "Import of GPS-coordinates in format NMEA 0183", there is added the processing of RMC message at import of GPS-coordinates using the NMEA 0183 protocol. The RMC message transmits the recommended minimum of navigation data - device position, velocity, time of positioning.

The task "Lists of objects" is refined. Into search by lists the option "Crossing and outside" is added. At search or mark of objects with the enabled option "Crossing and outside", the objects will be found 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.

"Map Editor" task is improved. The new mode of creating a multipolygon by selected polygon objects is added.

The set of complex views of conventional symbols for displaying lines with variable length of dashes has been expanded. New conventional symbols are applicable, for example, to display linear river beds and other linear objects with varying line width. Samples of symbols of a new view have been added into maps Shape\shape.sitx: File - Example data.

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