Igor Pankov, editor-in-chief of the video channel "Land Bulletin", visited the KB "Panorama" and talked to Albert Demidenko, Deputy Director General for Research. During the meeting, topical issues of the forming the spatial data infrastructure of the Russian Federation and the development of the domestic geoinformatics market were discussed.

Specialists of KB "Panorama" in collaboration with Procad S.A. (Republic of Nicaragua) prepared two new training-demonstration maps onto the territory of Nicaragua in Spanish: a geographic map on a scale of 1: 500 000 and a topographic map on a scale of 1: 50 000.
The geographic map on the scale of 1: 500 000 is intended for users who only start to get acquainted with possibilities of "Panorama" software products. The map demonstrates possibilities of visualizing the geographical information, the data about a relief, the superposition of additional thematic layers.
A topographic map on a scale of 1: 50 000 displays about 3 thousand square kilometers of the territory of the Chinandega Department, stretching from the volcano San Cristobal to the western tip of the Kosiguin Peninsula. The map demonstrates the capabilities of

Specialists of KB "Panorama" refined the technology of forming a high-precision measuring three-dimensional terrain model. Using this technology, an accurate 3D terrain model can be quickly obtained in several ways and with a combination of various input data.
A realistic high-precision 3D-model of the terrain can be obtained by shooting the terrain using unmanned aerial photography systems, processing and displaying the obtained data. The software imports three-dimensional models from tile models in the TLS format (Agisoft Tiled Model), point clouds in the Agisoft OC3 format and LAS files into the DB3D format. The database of three-dimensional tiles in DB3D format is used to store and display 3D models in the form of three-dimensional tiles from data of any type, scale range and length.
To obtain a 3D terrain model, high-altitude data (matrixes or tin models), space and aerial photographs, geoportal data and vector two-dimensional maps, for example, free maps on the base of OpenStreetMap, can be used. In this case, the terrain model is created by superimposing automatically created tiles with images or images of maps onto a high-altitude base (Applications. Building a 3D model). From vector two-dimensional maps, information on the location and characteristics of objects is added onto the terrain model. And for their volumetric display, the libraries of standard 3D models are used, which are supplied with the KB Panorama software.
All the described options for obtaining a three-dimensional terrain model can be used simultaneously or in any combination in desktop and Web applications. Examples of using the technology are shown in the video material the "GIS WebServer SE. Possibilities of creating realistic 3D-models of terrain", which is available for review in the Video lessons section.

In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of agronomist" version 13.1 is developed. The new version has expanded the functions of obtaining and viewing data of remote sensing of the Earth within the boundaries of agricultural land. Into the tasks line of satellite monitoring, there is added a package obtaining of maps of inhomogeneity zones on several contours of an arable land. The new mode simplifies work with a large number of fields, allows you to download maps of a given number of zones with a similar state of vegetation, or to calculate maps of nitrogen application. Differentiated fertilizer application according to inhomogeneity maps or nitrogen content maps makes it possible to increase productivity by rational selection of fertilizer doses.
When creating maps of heterogeneity zones with automatic selection of images, the amount of information on the contour of the arable land as a whole and for each zone separately was increased. Together with the map, the numbers of the most differing zones, the general level of heterogeneity, the index of heterogeneity and productivity of the entire land plot are saved, and the description of each zone is supplemented by local indices of heterogeneity and productivity. This information can be used in a more detailed analysis of the land plot state.
Into the mode "Viewing Remote Sensing Data" the window has been added for simultaneous viewing the matrixes of several vegetation indexes onto a contour of one agricultural land. This allows you to visually analyze the state of vegetation. The mode is intended for an unloading the maps of zoning by nitrogen of a working plot into a file-task of the onboard computer. Nitrogen zoning maps are loaded to a local disk or
