  • 15.10.2021 Training video material on registering territorial zones with special conditions of using the territories has been prepared
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a video lesson of the mode "Territorial zones with special conditions of using the territories". Video lesson shows a formation of the XML-document reproducing data on an establishment, change, termination of existence of zones with special conditions of using the territories, territorial zones (scheme ZoneToGKN_v05.xsd). The preparation of an XML document describing the location of the boundaries of zones with special conditions for the use of territories, territories of cultural heritage objects included in the unified state register of cultural heritage objects (historical and cultural monuments) of the peoples of the Russian Federation, special economic zones is demonstrated. Users of the "Workstation of cadastral engineer", GIS "Panorama" or "Panorama-editor" can form XML-documents of zones with special conditions of using the territories, territorial zones using a complex of geodesy calculations.

    The training material shows the features of data preparation, filling in the mandatory characteristics and the formation of XML-file of a zone with special conditions of using the territories, territorial zones in accordance with the Order of Rosreestr № P/0465 dated 09/15/2016. On the basis of this order in software products of KB "Panorama" the classifier of conventional symbols survey.v5.rscz has been developed. In the classifier there is implemented a general list of layers, semantic characteristics and objects for display of cadastral data on cadastral maps and other cadastral documents.

    The recommended procedure for working with the "Territorial zones with special conditions of using the territories" mode:
    - Fill in the positions of the screen form on the pages "Documents", "Applicant" and "Zones";
    - Form the XML document;
    - Generate an electronic digital signature (All files must be located in the same folder with the XML document on the establishment of the Zones);
    - Generate a package of information to be sent to the state cadastre of real estate.

  • 13.10.2021 GIS "Panorama" for Linux provides effective creation and editing of spatial data of large volume
    KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" version 14.0.0 for OS Astra Linux SE (Releases "Smolensk" and "Oryol") has been developed. The new version accelerates the initial opening and display of large sets of vector maps and spatial databases containing several million objects and more. Construction of a tree of objects when opening the datasets was accelerated.
    Algorithms of data storage of type "a cloud of points" in data sets of format MTD have been improved. Packing of the data, taking into account the area of processed territory and the specified accuracy of storage, allows to reduce to 4 times the size of created MTD files which can be from several tens of Gigabytes to Terabytes. New algorithms allow to raise accuracy of terrain descriptions over a wider area and accelerate the construction of 3D terrain models.
    Display of raster data limited by a framework has been improved. The image of such rasters is cut out by a contour of a frame of any complexity. The frame can be set by any closed contour, or by a selected object. The frame can contain thousands of points and thousands of contours, as well as many times exceeds the raster by the area. A large number of frame points decreases the speed of displaying the raster. To speed up the display of rasters, an optimization of the raster frame during recording has been added - all frame contours are cut out by the sizes of each raster. When setting a region frame to all rasters of a region's coverage an optimized frame is written to each coverage raster. When opening the rasters and matrixes of heights created earlier, frame optimization is performed automatically (the sign of frame optimization is entered into the file). This approach allows you to speed up the display of both new raster data and previously created ones.
    Display of clusters used for grouping point conventional signs on a map has been improved. Into the cluster description the property "Display the first character in the cluster" has been added. Placing it in the position of the cluster sign will first display the first object in the cluster and then the cluster icon. In this case, the cluster icon can contain only the number of objects or other complementary elements of the conventional symbol. When drawing an object, various semantics can be taken into account, including links to graphic files, which makes the generalized sign more complex and informative.
    In the task "Saving a vector map to files of graphic formats", an export of an image of an open document into the KMZ format has been added. The formed KMZ archive contains the KML project file and a set of raster tiles pyramid for the saved territory. The KML file contains a description of the raster data parameters - the names and coordinates of the rasters binding, as well as the priority of their display. In addition to the KMZ format, the task can save images into BMP, TIFF, JPEG, PNG and RSW formats. A fragment of a digital map document of any type and composition can be saved, including vector maps, images and matrices, as well as geospatial data from external Internet resources (WMS and WFS - services) and databases. In the task, it is possible to save the map image by the selected area, by the page format and by the dimensions of the selected objects, for example, by the dimensions of the frames of the nomenclature sheets.
    The display of elevations matrixes has been improved: the color of the coverage point is calculated based on 16 adjacent heights using the bicubic interpolation method. The new method makes it possible to smooth the discreteness of the display of the matrix elements and the light-shadow mask (hillshade) of the relief, as well as to crop the matrix image by the frame with pixel accuracy. The mode "Show all objects" has been added. This mode is intended for displaying all map objects without taking into account the boundaries of objects visibility and the contents of the map display.
    The set of possibilities for creating user's applied tasks has been expanded. In the updated set of developer tools, you can add items to the main menu of the application. Thanks to this, application tasks created by the developer can be called not only from their own panel, but also from the main application menu, along with standard tasks. This provides quick access to functionality written to solve specific user problems.
    Displaying sea maps of S57/S52 standards has been improved. In the s57navy.rsc classifier for attributes that have a list of classified values (Attribute type: L - CATAIR, CATACH, ... TECSOU), property the "Repeat allowed" is set. When exporting and importing data, lists of attribute values (1,7,, 30) are written and read. For display of lists of values, into the combined title the new operating symbol ' r ' (#113.r) has been added, which allows to form a line from the list of attribute values, separating them with a space. There is refined a display of depth marks taking into account safety contours and taking into account depths on drying surfaces.
    GIS "Panorama" can be used to create and edit digital topographic, sea, aeronautical and other maps and city plans. The program contains a professional digital map editor, which includes a large number of modes: creating objects, auto shapes, graphic objects, topology and many others. GIS "Panorama" allows you to combine vector, raster and matrix data in different projections (with performing the transformation on the fly) and use them as a basis for making calculations: obtaining information about the length, area of map objects and arbitrary polygons, building an orthodrome and loxodrome, zones around selected objects, intersection of objects, determination of emptiness, finding the distance between map objects, searching for points on the contour, searching by point, azimuth and distance, performing calculations by matrix of heights.
    Using the "Road net" task, users can search for the minimum route between two nodes, taking into account the values of the semantic characteristics of the network edges, find objects within a specified distance from the specified node (remoteness graph) and determine the minimum path between several specified nodes.
    GIS "Panorama" supports import of data from the most popular formats: vector maps SXF, TXF, DIR, SHP (Shapefile), DXF (AutoCAD), OGC GML (XML), KML (Google), S57 and others; raster data (RSW, BMP, JPEG, PNG, GeoTIFF, TIFF); matrixes of heights and matrixes of qualities MTW, MTQ, GRD, SRTM, GeoTIFF; geological matrixes of layers, TIN models and laser scanning data (point cloud in MTD format); navigation data GPX; aeronautical data ARINC-424.

  • 11.10.2021 Training video materials on determination of the contours of agricultural lands in the "Workstation of agronomist" has been prepared
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a video lesson about working the mode "Automatic determination of the contours of arable land" in the "Workstation of agronomist". For effective management of agriculture, it is necessary to know the real size of the sown area which the enterprise has. It is not uncommon for farm managers and agronomists to know the size of their fields only approximately, which negatively affects the accuracy of calculating the necessary fertilizers, plant protection products and calculating the yield.

    Resource-saving technologies, including precision farming, involve working with digital field maps. This is a spatial database on the basis of which almost all agrotechnical operations in precision farming are carried out.

    "Automatic determination of the contours of arable land" mode allows you to significantly speed up the process of creating digital maps of farmland. Information processing is carried out on a local territory bounded by a polygon or rectangle indicated on the map.

    The construction of a vector model of working areas of arable land is carried out on the "Geoalert" service in GeoJSON format based on automatically selected actual data of average (10 m/px) and high resolution (1.2 m/px). The obtained results are imported using the "Import of data from format GML (XML), GeoJSON" mode.

    You can get acquainted with the training materials in the "Video lessons" section.

  • 08.10.2021 In the Databank of digital maps and remote sensing the new types of stored information for conducting funds of spatial data have been added
    In KB "Panorama" the Databank of digital maps and remote sensing data version 6.3.0 has been developed. In the new version the maintenance of the register of analog images and analog maps has been implemented. Each type of document has a separate list of attributes and separate permissions for viewing, editing and deleting metadata. Search and selection of documents is carried out using all available attributes. Documents can be grouped into separate data layers by date, storage format, coordinate systems, image type, and other attributes. The number and types of data layers can be easily adjusted to the requirements of specific departments of geodesy and cartography enterprises, or enterprises that use spatial data in their activities. Differentiation of rights makes it possible to organize separate and secure access to information.

    The list of directories has been expanded, such directories have been added as the type of survey, the format for storing analog data, the elevation system, the type of image, the source material, the compilation language. The list of logged actions when working with the Data Bank has been expanded. Logging of operations of converting geocovers into formats SXF and SHP has been added. Each geocover can be previewed in a separate window, and if you have the appropriate permissions, you can work with them remotely in desktop applications, such as the GIS "Panorama" or "Panorama-editor".

    Data security is ensured by the differentiation of access rights based on security tools that are part of the operating system. Basic authentication, digest authentication, system authentication (via web server), and domain (Kerberos or Active Directory) are supported. The complex is adapted to work on a wide range of operating systems (Astra Linux SE, ALT Linux, Elbrus, Ubuntu, CentOS, MS Windows and others) and architectures (Intel, Elbrus).

    The complex of conducting a databank of digital maps and remote sensing data of the earth is registered in the register of domestic software under number 1862.

    The databank of digital maps and remote sensing data is the basis for building infrastructure of spatial data at the federal, regional and municipal levels, in corporate information systems. Within the framework of a single geoinformation space, the Data Bank of digital maps and remote sensing data realises gathering, storage, search and delivery of the spatial data in exchange formats. The spatial data selected by means of the program can be placed for the multiuser access on the GIS Server and be published according to the international standards OGC WFS, WFS-T, WMS, WMTS, WCS on application server the GIS WebService SE.

  • 06.10.2021 Training material has been prepared for demonstrating a new view of object "Table" in the GIS "Panorama"
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a video lesson on the creation and drawing a new view of object "Table" on the map. This view is used to display and print data from text files in CSV format on a map. The considered tool allows you in the GIS "Panorama" to form and display a table of a given type on the map.

    With the help of objects of the "Table" view, you can conveniently present data and place the necessary accents. In a tabular form the statistical data corresponding to objects of a map onto which the table will be placed can be shown. Information on financial, environmental, economic, medical, tax, meteorological, demographic and other types of statistics can be obtained on the websites of the Federal State Statistics Service. Statistical data for Russia as a whole are available on the Rosstat website, for various indicators for municipalities in the Database of indicators of municipalities.

    The "Table" view is assigned to a point object. The name of file CSV is set in semantics of object "Text file". The table can consist of one or more pages. The number of pages is set in semantics "Number of table pages". The table width is calculated automatically based on the column widths, taking into account the number of pages and the distance between the pages. If it is necessary to change the width of the table, it can be specified in the "Table width" semantics. To display a part of the data of the CSV file in the table, the semantics "First table row" and "End table row" are specified.

    Table parameters are customized in the "Editing a table" dialog. Additional elements are created and edited in it: table heading, column headings and subheadings.

    The "Table" object view is a convenient way of presenting data. It helps to structure information. And structured, systematized information will allow you to see, for example, the dynamics of changes in indicators. This view of objects is relevant for the visual presentation of information related to various objects on the map.

    You can get acquainted with the training materials in the "Video lessons" section.

  • 05.10.2021 In professional vectorizer "Panorama-editor" the possibilities of creating and updating thematic maps have been expanded
    In KB "Panorama" the professional vectorizer "Panorama-editor" version 14.0.2 has been developed. In the new version in the "Map Editor", the mode of creating multipolygons, multiline or multipoint objects based on selected objects has been implemented, depending on the character of localization of selected objects - areal, linear or point. The metric of the selected objects is combined into one object with common semantics, and the processed objects are deleted. Metric merging is performed only for objects that have the same classification code as the first selected object.

    In the dialog "Editing semantics of objects list" the ability has been added for changing the width of the column of the semantics table using the combination of the Ctrl + left mouse button in the column header. The "Expand Column" item has been added into the context menu of the dialog. To view an object corresponding to a line in the table of semantics, the "Select object" item has been added into the context menu. By pressing the menu item or the Ctrl+I key combination, the "Select object" dialog box is displayed on the screen, with help of which you can view the main characteristics and edit the semantics of the object.

    The "Map Legend" task has been improved. On the "Maps" bookmark, the "Paste selected objects" menu item has been added into the context menu. This mode allows you to paste objects previously copied to the clipboard onto one or several selected maps in the tree.

    In the "Select object" dialog on the "Semantics" bookmark, the "Select similar objects" and "Select objects by semantics" items have been added to the context menu. When selecting objects similar to the selected one, a coincidence is checked in terms of the layer, character of localization, the object code and the coincidence of the value of the current semantics or the semantics selected on the bookmark. If the "Semantics" bookmark in the current line has semantics of the type "Link to file", then the context menu will additionally contain the items "Open document in a separate window" and "Add to current document". When you select the appropriate item, a command will be executed to open or add the corresponding data set (vector map, remote sensing data, and the like). In the "Metric" bookmark, the "Display order" item has been added into the context menu for selecting the "Above everyone", "Below all", "Normal" property, which affects the position of an object relative to other objects. When the "Normal" property is set, the display order of the object is determined in the classifier by its layer, type of conventional symbol and localization. In the "Metric" bookmark, the "Save metric coordinates to EPSG:3857" item has been added into the context menu, intended for saving the object metric in GeoJson format in the Mercator projection on the WGS-84 sphere. The received file can be used for addition of objects on the Public cadastral map.

    "Show all objects" item has been added into the Options menu. This mode is intended for displaying all map objects without taking into account the range of objects visibility and the contents of the map display. To quickly enable and disable the mode, a combination of hot keys Ctrl+Shift+A has been added.

    The task "Data list of maps" has been improved. On the "Matrix" bookmark the call of mode "Optimization of the list of matrixes of quality" mode has been added. Optimization of the matrix of qualities is performed to reduce the file size, as well as to update reduced copies (tiles) of the matrix for different display scales. Reducing the file size is achieved by cutting the image by the specified frame.

    The tools of thematic mapping and display of the statistical information of various purposes have been expanded. With the help of objects of the new "Table" image the various statistical data can be presented. Statistical data can be displayed both for Russia as a whole, and for various indicators for regional and municipal formations. Different layers of the map can contain tables for different themes and years. Tables, like other objects, can have visibility scale ranges. At updating the table the data will change accordingly on a map.
    To display the table in the desired position, a point object is created that has a link to the CSV file in the semantics and a conventional symbol of the "Table" type. A CSV file is a set of lines containing the values of one or more table fields (columns) separated by symbols - comma, semicolon, tab. The graphic parameters of the table are customized in semantics of the object, in the RSC classifier or in the graphic parameters of the object. The name of file CSV is set in semantics of object "Text file". Table parameters are customized in the "Editing a table" dialog.

    The map with the created tables will have one view in desktop, mobile, web-applications on any platforms, with local placement or on the GIS Server and at printing. A layer with tables can be opened on top of any other data - spatial databases, geoportals, remote sensing data. The map, together with CSV files and background data, can be packed into one file of SITZ/MAPZ/MPTZ formats.

    The "Add photos" task from the "File" menu has been improved. Ability has been added to select and view photos on the map using the key combination Ctrl+Shift+left mouse button. The increase in the image of a photo occurs without increase in the map image. When you resize the dialog box, the photo image is scaled automatically.

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

  • 01.10.2021 Complex of agronomical tasks simplifies preparation of initial data for management of agriculture with use of a neural network
    In KB "Panorama" the "Complex of agronomical tasks" version 6.12.1 has been developed. In the new version for the "Automatic determination of the contours of arable land" mode, the ability to select the processing area, both with a rectangular frame and with a closed polygon of arbitrary shape, has been added.
    Until recently, there were three main modes for creating maps of agricultural land, differing in the cost of initial materials, labor costs and accuracy: decoding satellite images from open sources, digitizing orthophotomaps, processing data from GPS trackers. The most optimal of them in terms of the ratio of these indicators was considered to be the processing of data from GPS trackers. With the development of technologies based on neural networks, robotic decoding of raster data is becoming a more accurate and cheaper tool for creating vector maps of land parcels.
    KB "Panorama" together with the "Geoalert" company have developed the "Automatic determination of the contours of arable land" mode for the "Complex of agronomical tasks". The GeoAlert.io service, using artificial intelligence, analyzes the raster data available to it and constructs on their basis the vector maps of the working areas of the agricultural enterprise. Information processing is carried out on the territory selected by the user. It can be a rectangle or any arbitrary closed polygon.
    An accurate digital model of farmland is the basis for all further agrotechnical calculations: maintaining field passports, constructing thematic cartograms, obtaining vegetation indices, maps of heterogeneity and the need for nitrogen, calculating the application of fertilizer doses, and others.
    "Complex of agronomical tasks" is an additional module for GIS "Panorama", "Panorama-editor" or GIS Panorama Mini. The complex is designed to create, edit, keep up to date, use and analyze electronic maps of fields together with an information base of the history of fields and soil fertility. The software package includes modes that provide information support for precision farming technology.
    The new version of the "Complex of agronomical tasks" can be downloaded on our website in the Download section.

  • 30.09.2021 In GIS ToolKit the tools for designing digital terrain maps with use of the geotagged photos have been developed
    In KB "Panorama" the toolbox of GIS ToolKit version 14.0.2 has been developed for creating GIS applications in the environment of C++ Builder, Delphi Embarcadero. The new version includes tools for obtaining information about terrain objects using a combined technology for combining ground-based photographic materials with the results of remote sensing data. In the component for converting spatial data MapDataConversion there is added the function of loading photos in JPEG format containing GPS coordinates of the shooting location in EXIF tags. Typically, photographs taken with digital cameras and mobile phones equipped with a GPS receiver have such properties. Photos are loaded from the specified folder with photos. As a result, a service map will be added to the open document, containing point objects, for which semantics are automatically filled with a link to photo files. The service map is saved in the folder with the initial map and is added into the list of open maps. Photos on the map are displayed as icons (thumbnails). When the map is increased, the photos are also enlarged. The algorithm of an automatic clustering is applied for grouping of photos on a map at scaling. Densely located objects with photos are replaced with the first object in a cluster with indicating the number of photos in the given cell.

    For viewing photos, the TMapManager component of map management has been improved, which allows to display a photo in a separate window when you click on an object. When programming, you can set the location and size of the window for viewing photos.

    The GIS ToolKit consists of a set of visual components (supplied in source code) and API functions of the GIS core for direct access to spatial data. The toolkit is intended for the development of client-server and desktop 32-bit and 64-bit applications that require processing and visualization of spatial data. Spatial data can be located both at the workplace (direct access to data) and in a local network or the Internet (components of access to the GIS Server or data exchange by international protocols are used).

    The new version of the program is available for download on the Download page.

  • 28.09.2021 Training material on creation of mathematical basis of the map has been prepared
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a video lesson on creation of mathematical basis of the map. Users of the GIS "Panorama" can independently create a rectangular and cartographic grid, as well as customize the display of these grids and other construction parameters.

    In the training material a work with the tool "Creation of mathematical basis of a map" is considered, which is available in the menu "Run Applications - Automatic creation of objects". The task is intended for creation of a mathematical basis for digital topographic maps of scale from 1:10 000 till 1:1 000 000 and for geographic maps of scale from 1:500 000 till 1:10 000 000. Most often, this tool is called to check the accuracy of placing raster images. When creating a mathematical basis for topographic maps, it is necessary that all the sheets of the region belong to the same six-degree zone.

  • 27.09.2021 In the Databank of digital maps and remote sensing data the procedure for differentiating access rights for increase of safety and convenience of work has been changed at conducting funds of spatial data
    In KB "Panorama" the Databank of digital maps and remote sensing data version 6.2.0 has been developed. For the joint work of divisions of enterprises that have funds of spatial data, there are added the tools of differentiating the access rights to certain categories of digital information about the terrain (maps, images, matrixes, geocovering, classifiers, geodetic points). Separate permissions for each category of data on viewing, editing, deleting, downloading and loading the data have been implemented. This makes it possible to organize separate and secure access to digital information for structural units of enterprises of geodesy and cartography, or enterprises that use spatial data in their activities.

    Possibility has been added for the opening (starting) of a databank in a mode of loading of the data, formations of requests, reports or opening of a certain layer of data with metadata filtration. Having set the appropriate rights for each structural unit, they can start their work with a specific task. Access to the tasks of adjacent divisions for them will be closed. It provides additional protection of spatial data and speeds up the work process.

    Convenient access to data processing logs is provided. Setting for the path to the log repository has been added. The log files are grouped into subfolders with date indicating.

    Possibility of converting vector maps into SXF and SHP formats was implemented. The operator selects necessary data sets, builds a geocovering in the specified coordinate system, chooses a format of converting and a folder for export. When finished, a protocol with the results of converting is displayed. Each geocovering can be previewed in a separate window. If you have the appropriate permissions, you can work remotely with geocovering using desktop applications such as the GIS "Panorama" or "Panorama-editor".

    Data security is ensured by the differentiation of access rights based on security tools that are part of the operating system. Basic authentication, digest authentication, system authentication (via web server), and domain (Kerberos or Active Directory) are supported. The complex is adapted to work on a wide range of operating systems (Astra Linux SE, ALT Linux, Elbrus, Ubuntu, CentOS, MS Windows and others) and architectures (Intel, Elbrus).

    The complex of conducting a databank of digital maps and remote sensing data of the earth is registered in the register of domestic software under number 1862.

    The databank of digital maps and remote sensing data is the basis for building infrastructure of spatial data at the federal, regional and municipal levels, in corporate information systems. Within the framework of a single geoinformation space, the Data Bank of digital maps and remote sensing data realises gathering, storage, search and delivery of the spatial data in exchange formats. The spatial data selected by means of the program can be placed for the multiuser access on the GIS Server and be published according to the international standards OGC WFS, WFS-T, WMS, WMTS, WCS on application server the GIS WebService SE. Users can access data from both a thin client (by means of GIS WebServer SE) and from desktop applications (GIS "Panorama", GIS "Operator"). The databank of digital maps and remote sensing data provides construction of cloud warehouse of spatial data, provision of access to these data, the automated formation and updating of geocovers. The current state of spatial data is displayed by means of maps-schemes that are maintained for each type of stored data: vector maps, remote sensing data, elevation matrixes and terrain models. It provides remote placing the sets of spatial data into file warehouse, keeping versions of stored sets, updating maps-schemes of data availability, the automated collection and formation of metadata, and the formation and updating of geocovers. Automated collection and formation of metadata is performed according to the standards of ISO 19115: 2003, Geographic information - Metadata and ISO/TS 19139, Geographic information - Metadata - XML schema implementation. The reduced copies of data images are automatically formed, checksum of files and completeness of data sets are checked. Placement of spatial data into file storage is performed with integrity check, control of data structure and content. The results of the work are recorded and entered into the metadata base. Automatic backup of metadata and spatial data storage with integrity control and data recovery has been provided. Multilingual interface is supported.

    The portal "Bank of spatial data" presents the possibilities of organizing storage, accounting and and issuance of vector maps, remote sensing data, DEMs and terrain models. The portal contains vector maps in SXF format, generated on the basis of data from open sources (OpenStreetMap, VMap0). The spatial data includes maps of: subjects of the Russian Federation, countries and cities of the near and far abroad. In total, over 240 vector maps and 6700 matrix data with a total volume of 56 GB. Specialists of KB "Panorama" weekly update and refresh the content of the information on the portal. All published data is distributed free of charge under a free license.

  • 22.09.2021 GIS "Panorama" 14 automates the preparation of graphic documents with various statistical information by regions and municipalities
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" version 14.0.2 has been developed. In the new version the tools of thematic mapping and display of the statistical information of various purposes have been expanded. With the help of objects of the new "Table" image the various statistical data on financial, environmental, economic, medical, tax, meteorological, demographic topics can be presented, which can be obtained on the websites of the Federal State Statistics Service. Statistical data can be displayed both for Russia as a whole, and for various indicators for municipalities in the Database of indicators of municipalities.Different layers of the map can contain tables for different themes and years. Tables, like other objects, can have visibility scale ranges. At updating the table the data will change accordingly on a map.

    To display the table in the desired position, a point object is created that has a link to the CSV file in the semantics and a conventional symbol of the "Table" type. A CSV file is a set of lines containing the values of one or more table fields (columns) separated by symbols - comma, semicolon, tab. The graphic parameters of the table are customized in semantics of the object, in the RSC classifier or in the graphic parameters of the object. The name of file CSV is set in semantics of object "Text file". The table can contain from 1 to 256 columns. Each column allows you to place data of the selected type: text and numerical data, pictures (in PNG, JPG, BMP format), colored figures and percentage scales. The table can consist of one or more pages. The number of pages is set in semantics "Number of table pages". The table width is calculated automatically based on the column widths, taking into account the number of pages and the distance between the pages. If it is necessary to change the width of the table, it can be specified in the "Table width" semantics. To display a part of the data of the CSV file in the table, the semantics "First table row" and "End table row" are specified. Table parameters are customized in the "Editing a table" dialog. Additional elements are created and edited in it: table heading, column headings and subheadings. The table heading is placed above the table and aligned by the first page, or by the width of the table. Columns headings can have several levels. In this case, the upper levels contain the merged headings, the lower ones the simple column headings. Subheadings are placed between the table rows. The subheading status must be specified in a text file (CSV). The map with the created tables will have one view in desktop, mobile, web-applications on any platforms, with local placement or on the GIS Server and at printing. A layer with tables can be opened on top of any other data - spatial databases, geoportals, remote sensing data. The map, together with CSV files and background data, can be packed into one file of SITZ/MAPZ/MPTZ formats.

    The "Map Legend" task has been improved. On the "Maps" bookmark, the "Paste selected objects" menu item has been added into the context menu. This mode allows you to paste objects previously copied to the clipboard onto one or several selected maps in the tree.

    In the "Select object" dialog on the "Semantics" bookmark, the "Select similar objects" and "Select objects by semantics" items have been added to the context menu. When selecting objects similar to the selected one, a coincidence is checked in terms of the layer, character of localization, the object code and the coincidence of the value of the current semantics or the semantics selected on the bookmark. If the "Semantics" bookmark in the current line has semantics of the type "Link to file", then the context menu will additionally contain the items "Open document in a separate window" and "Add to current document". When you select the appropriate item, a command will be executed to open or add the corresponding data set (vector map, remote sensing data, and the like). In the "Metric" bookmark, the "Display order" item has been added into the context menu for selecting the "Above everyone", "Below all", "Normal" property, which affects the position of an object relative to other objects. When the "Normal" property is set, the display order of the object is determined in the classifier by its layer, type of conventional symbol and localization. In the "Metric" bookmark, the "Save metric coordinates to EPSG:3857" item has been added into the context menu, intended for saving the object metric in GeoJson format in the Mercator projection on the WGS-84 sphere. The received file can be used for addition of objects on the Public cadastral map.

    In the "Map Editor", the mode of creating multipolygons, multiline or multipoint objects based on selected objects is implemented, depending on the character of localization of selected objects - areal, linear or point. The metric of the selected objects is combined into one object with common semantics, and the processed objects are deleted. Metric merging is performed only for objects that have the same classification code as the first selected object.

    "Show all objects" item has been added into the Options menu. This mode is intended for displaying all map objects without taking into account the range of objects visibility and the contents of the map display. To quickly enable and disable the mode, a combination of hot keys Ctrl+Shift+A has been added.

    The task "Data list of maps" has been improved. On the "Matrix" bookmark the call of mode "Optimization of the list of matrixes of quality" mode has been added. Optimization of the matrix of qualities is performed to reduce the file size, as well as to update reduced copies (tiles) of the matrix for different display scales. Reducing the file size is achieved by cutting the image by the specified frame.

    The task "Import of vector maps from OSM format" has been improved. Ability has been added to select the main language for creating a map: local (in accordance with the main language of the territory), Russian and English. By default, all names in the source dataset are presented in the national language of the mapped area. However, the additional attribute data may contain names in other languages. If, when importing data, Russian or English is specified as the main language, the semantics of the name will be filled in with the text in the selected language and the titles on the map will be generated in it. In the absence of texts in the selected language for individual objects, it is possible to use the text in the national language.

    The "Add photos" task from the "File" menu has been improved. Ability has been added to select and view photos on the map using the key combination Ctrl+Shift+left mouse button. The increase in the image of a photo occurs without increase in the map image. When you resize the dialog box, the photo image is scaled automatically.

  • 15.09.2021 In GIS WebService SE the possibilities of processing large volumes of spatial data have been expanded
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebService SE version 14.1.1 has been developed. In the new version the tools of processing the geodata of great volume have been improved. The service allows you to process maps consisting of 2 000 000 000 objects, 2 000 000 000 points (for one dataset), remote sensing data sets up to 1 TB in size, databases up to several TB. GIS WebService SE can display pictures with a resolution of 8K and tiles up to 23 levels of approximation inclusive (corresponds to a scale of 1:75). Ability has been added for displaying maps of the Russian Federation, in which the coordinates of the Chukotka Peninsula are over 180°. Thus, on such maps at display there will be no line dividing the peninsula.
    To simplify the diagnostics of the service operation, there is implemented a prestarting output of information about the layers being processed, connections to GIS Servers, the presence of access to virtual and user folders, and the list of available user groups. Display of service error messages has been reworked.
    The list of requests supported by the service has been expanded. The new request of search for an optimal route along the road graph with a stop at several points has been added. For requests of work with the transaction log, the ability to sort the results by object identifiers has been implemented. There is added the ability to update the cache for third-party geoportals connected for republishing by the service. The filtration of points of the object metrics for output in formats gml/json has been implemented. To display statistics, the ability has been added of displaying a list of semantics (such as a list) presented on the map.

  • 13.09.2021 In the professional vectorizer "Panorama-Editor", the tools for updating topographic and special maps have been improved
    In KB "Panorama" the professional vectorizer "Panorama-editor" version 14.0.1 has been developed. In the new version in the "Map Editor" task, the mode for creating objects the "Coordinate label" has been improved. There is added the ability to dynamically change the settings of the title, which is created onto the map next to the cursor. By means of the "Set font parameters" contextual menu item, the font editing dialog is called, in which you can change the color, height, name and other properties of the font. The new font values are stored in the object semantics the "Coordinate label". In the mode "Creating object by coordinates entered from the keyboard" there is added a support for calculating the coordinates of a metric point using the specified initial coordinates of the point, azimuth and distance to the next point. In the "Cut lists" mode, the algorithm for cutting of objects specified by one list from objects specified by another list has been improved. When processing large amounts of data (hundreds of thousands of processed objects with thousands of internal contours), the operation time was reduced from several hours to minutes. The mode can be used, for example, for cutting islands in water bodies, glades in vegetation and for other objects. Processed objects are checked for self-intersections and automatically corrected. The contours of the cut objects are automatically matched to the processed objects, which significantly reduces the amount of manual work.

    In the task of creation of label by object semantics, the ability to create arbitrary graphic labels not specified in the RSC classifier has been added. The choice of color, font, height, thickness and other parameters of the label is performed in the dialog, which is called by the button "Graphics". The location of the graphic label relative to the object being signed, filling and displaying the semantic characteristics is carried out according to the same algorithm as for the title from the map classifier. In the task "Control of label metrics" the ability has been added of processing the titles on the selected map or on all maps available for editing.
    The task "Map Passport" has been improved. On the "Sheet Metadata" page there is added the information about execution of summary of the sides of a map sheet with adjacent sheets. The summary of adjacent map sheets is a coordination of areal and linear objects of adjacent sheets, the contours of which go onto the sheet frames. Objects of adjacent sheets are considered coordinated in case of conformity of the points going onto the frame, and absence of contradictions of semantic characteristics. By default, the signs of sheet sides summary have the "Not installed" value. When matching two adjacent sheets for the corresponding side in the passport of the map, the value "Completed" is set. For maps with an arbitrary territory without division into nomenclature sheets, the values "Not required" are entered in the summary fields. On the "Metadata" page, the list of metadata saved into the ".meta.xml" file has been expanded. There is added a recording an information about the restrictions on the use of the dataset: information about the agreement (contract), under which the dataset was created, containing restrictions on the distribution and use of data. Improvements were made in order to ensure the maintenance of federal and regional collections of spatial data and the completeness of the metadata description.
    Displaying sea maps of S57/S52 standards has been improved. In the s57navy.rsc classifier for attributes that have a list of classified values (Attribute type: L - CATAIR, CATACH, ... TECSOU), property the "Repeat allowed" is set. When exporting and importing data, lists of attribute values (1,7,, 30) are written and read. For display of lists of values, into the combined title the new operating symbol ' r ' (#113.r) has been added, which allows to form a line from the list of attribute values, separating them with a space. There is refined a display of depth marks taking into account safety contours and taking into account depths on drying surfaces.
    The "Report Designer" task has been improved. Legend and explication maps are created in a conditional coordinate system, which eliminates distortion when added to a map created in a different projection. Maps with tables of legends and explication are created with a coordinate reference to the northeast corner of the designed map, which allows adding maps without additional positioning. In the Legend formation mode, the functions "Divide into blocks", "Split Block", "Combine blocks" have been added.
    The number of lines with conventional symbols of objects in a block can be changed. A block on the map is created in the form of a grouping of objects by semantics, which allows further general movement, deletion and other group operations.
    Algorithms of data storage of type "a cloud of points" in data sets of format MTD have been improved. Packing of the data, taking into account the area of processed territory and the specified accuracy of storage, allows to reduce to 4 times the size of created MTD files which can be from several tens of Gigabytes to Terabytes. New algorithms allow to raise accuracy of terrain descriptions over a wider area.
    In a problem "the List of the data of an electronic map" is added a call of a new mode "Change of a binding of matrixes on dx/dy metres". The mode call is carried out on a bookmark of "Matrix" by means of the point of the contextual menu with the same name. The mode is intended for change of a binding of matrixes of heights, layers and qualities of the document on the set size in metres. Processed matrixes should be accessible on editing. Binding change is carried out both for one, and for all matrixes of the document.
    In the task "Data list of map" a call of the new mode "Change of location of a matrix on dx/dy meters" has been added.The mode is called on the "Matrixes" bookmark using the same-named item of the context menu. The mode is intended for changing the binding of matrixes of height, layers and qualities of the document onto a specified value in meters. The processed matrixes must be available for editing. Changing the location is carried out both for one and for all matrixes of the document.
    The "Display/Inform window" item has been added into the Options menu to enable or disable a pop-up message that informs the operator about the result of the action performed in the map window.
    The new version of the program is available for download in the Download section.

  • 10.09.2021 Training material on demonstration of photos and video data with a geolocation in the GIS "Panorama" 14 has been prepared
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a video lesson on using the mode "To locate photos of JPEG on map by GPS-coordinates" and the task "Share your photos with the coordinates of the shooting". The mode "To locate photos of JPEG on map by GPS-coordinates" is used for an automatic binding to a map of JPEG photos containing GPS-coordinates of a shooting's place. The task "Share your photos with the coordinates of the shooting" is intended for viewing video files synchronized with a GPS track received from a car video recorder, a UAV video camera or a mobile phone.
    The tutorial demonstrates the work of the modes "To locate photos of JPEG on map by GPS-coordinates" and "The movement of the track (video)" on the example of the map "Moscow and Moscow region". As source materials, JPEG photographs are presented, which were obtained using devices of an unmanned aerial vehicle with a GPS module, and also a set of video files from a car DVR with GPS binding. When shooting with such devices, an additional structure corresponding to the EXIF format is added into the photo file, in which the geographical coordinates of the shooting's location are recorded. A set of video files from a GPS-linked car DVR is preloaded onto the track map using the "Loading tracks from directory" mode. The source data can be video files in AVI, MP4 format. The GPS track can be contained in the subtitles of the video file, or in the file of the same name in the GPX, KML or NMEA-0183 format.

    The combined technology of superimposition of ground-based photo and video materials with the results of remote sensing data will make it possible to more accurately obtain information about terrain objects. This technology is widely used in the railway, automotive and agricultural sectors.

    You can get acquainted with the training materials in the "Video lessons" section.

In the dialog "Viewing entry of objects" the elements were added for displaying statistics, including the number of entries and the total area of entries. Report formation in format CSV and XLS has been implemented. Tools for displaying statistics on the map have been added, for this, the corresponding semantics were added into the agro10t.rsc classifier (codes 641, 642 and 643).
    In the dialog "Map (plan) of object of land" to maintain a list of types of permitted use of the land management object, an algorithm for dynamic memory allocation is implemented, without restrictions on the number of allowed lines.
    In the "Land survey plan" mode, the procedure for formation of a text report for subsequent printing has been clarified. In the table of information about the geodetic base, fields have been added to display information about the state of the external sign of the point, the center of the sign and the mark.Order of writing information into the XML file according to the schema version 8 has been changed, the "ContactAddress" element has been moved inside the "Contact Owner" element.
    The dialog "Technical construction plan" has been improved, when the dialog is opened, information is displayed only from the repeated semantics of the real estate object. To obtain information about the land plots on which the property is located on the map, a corresponding button has been added.
    In the modes "Land survey plan", "Technical plan" and "Semantics of object of cadastral works", when entering and editing information about the geodetic base, the ability to add geodetic points by calling the "Catalogue of coordinates" dialog has been added. In this case, the "Catalogue of coordinates" mode provides a choice of a geodetic point from the list. The composition of the coordinate catalog has been expanded, the columns "Item type", "Sign state", "Mark state", "Center state" and "Date" have been added.
    The mode "Reading the cadastral plan of territory and updating the map" has been improved. The list of formed semantics is expanded at processing of characteristic points of borders. Reading from XML files and saving information about the method for determining coordinates into the semantics of point objects has been implemented. Creation of new maps, in the absence of the customized parameters of LCS, is carried out with type "Large-scale plan". All new maps are created not according to the classifier of the main map of the open document, but on the classifier survey of the current version that provides correct classification of objects (assignment of codes), created onto a map.
    In the "Filling of semantics of the selected objects" mode, the correct processing of maps located for remote collective access on the GIS Server has been implemented. The blocking of the issuance of diagnostic messages during streaming processing of several objects is provided. Information about erroneous operations is remembered and recorded into the protocol.

  • 08.09.2021 Training material on map sorting in the GIS "Panorama" has been prepared
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a video lesson on sorting map objects. Users of the GIS "Panorama" can independently perform the procedure of sorting data. The tutorial demonstrates the "Map Sorting" task. This tool organizes the placement of object descriptions in metrics and semantics files, which speeds up their further processing and ensures the correct sequence of displaying objects. In addition, when sorting, you can exclude from files the metrics and semantics of deleted objects and copies of edited objects. Thus, data compression is performed. Sorting map objects can change the accuracy of data storage (the number of decimal places) and the system of stored coordinates of objects - flat rectangular in meters or geodetic in radians. Storing coordinates in radians speeds up the display of maps when it is required to perform recalculation into different display projections "on the fly", and allows you to create maps of any length in longitude. Storing coordinates in meters significantly speeds up the display of the map in its projection.
    For the correct formation of land management documentation, calculation of lengths, areas, a list of coordinates, it is additionally recommended to set the storage accuracy in millimeters or centimeters. This will provide uniformity of calculation results in tasks (Geodesy editor, Map Editor, Map Computer and others) without additional parameter settings. Sorting allows to change a format of a vector map. At sorting with change of a data format, the files of the initial format of a map are automatically deleted. Formats SITX, SITZ, MAPZ can be converted back to initial formats SIT or MAP by sorting. Packaged maps, when reverse conversion, retain the metric accuracy in centimeters. The coordinates of objects in centimeters are stored in integers, which reduces the size of the metric files by half.

    In KB "Panorama" the Databank of digital maps and Remote Sensing Data version 6.1.0 has been developed. In the new version the tools of customizing access to the separate groups of spatial data - to data layers have been added. The ability to save data selections has been implemented, filling the tree of sections of the complex with them. The operator can form data layers on the fly for their further use when generating reports, exporting and issuing spatial data, creating geo-covers, editing metadata, and generating requests.

    The selection can contain a filter by the state of the terrain, scale, data format, coordinate system, comment and others. This makes it possible to provide access to data in accordance with the requirements of the enterprises of Roskartography and other organizations. Selecting a specific data layer automatically filters the metadata. The number of such layers is not limited and is configured by the administrator. Each layer has its own icon and can include child layers.
    When drawing the contours of objects onto the data availability scheme, the generalization of the metric contour is performed to speed up the search for data over the area and display the scheme. Data security is ensured by the differentiation of access rights based on security tools that are part of the operating system. Basic authentication, digest authentication, system authentication (via web server), and domain (Kerberos or Active Directory) are supported. The complex is adapted to work on a wide range of operating systems (Astra Linux SE, ALT Linux, Elbrus, Ubuntu, CentOS, MS Windows and others) and architectures (Intel, Elbrus).

    The complex of conducting a databank of digital maps and remote sensing data of the earth is registered in the register of domestic software under number 1862.

    The databank of digital maps and remote sensing data is the basis for building infrastructure of spatial data at the federal, regional and municipal levels, in corporate information systems. Within the framework of a single geoinformation space, the Data Bank of digital maps and remote sensing data realises gathering, storage, search and delivery of the spatial data in exchange formats. The spatial data selected by means of the program can be placed for the multiuser access on the GIS Server and be published according to the international standards OGC WFS, WFS-T, WMS, WMTS, WCS on application server the GIS WebService SE. Users can access data from both a thin client (by means of GIS WebServer SE) and from desktop applications (GIS "Panorama", GIS "Operator"). The databank of digital maps and remote sensing data provides construction of cloud warehouse of spatial data, provision of access to these data, the automated formation and updating of geo-covers. The current state of spatial data is displayed by means of maps-schemes that are maintained for each type of stored data: vector maps, remote sensing data, elevation matrixes and terrain models. It provides remote placing the sets of spatial data into file warehouse, keeping versions of stored sets, updating maps-schemes of data availability, the automated collection and formation of metadata, and the formation and updating of geo-covers. Automated collection and formation of metadata is performed according to the standards of ISO 19115: 2003, Geographic information - Metadata and ISO/TS 19139, Geographic information - Metadata - XML schema implementation. The reduced copies of data images are automatically formed, checksum of files and completeness of data sets are checked. Placement of spatial data into file storage is performed with integrity check, control of data structure and content. The results of the work are recorded and entered into the metadata base. Automatic backup of metadata and spatial data storage with integrity control and data recovery has been provided. Multilingual interface is supported.

  • 01.09.2021 Training material on import of data from a spatial database has been prepared
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a video lesson demonstrating the capabilities of the task "Import of data of Digital Terrain Maps placed in spatial Data Base". This mode is available to users of the GIS "Panorama" and GIS "Operator". The tutorial demonstrates the construction of a map from the data of spatial databases, as well as the procedure for setting up the task. To load layers from a spatial database, a digital topographic map (DTM) of the GIS "Panorama" format is formed. The map is created with the parameters of the coordinate system and projection corresponding to the specified EPSG code. It is recommended that you specify the EPSG code to create the map according to the coordinate system settings used in tables of spatial database. In this case, the transformation of spatial data will not be performed, which will reduce the execution time and reduce the likelihood of recalculation errors.

    If the connection to the database is successful, the "DTM Layers" tab displays a list of tables registered as intended for storing spatial data by DTM layers. On this tab, you can select all or individual tables from which data will be loaded into the DTM. If the connection to the database is successful, all the necessary parameters for creating a result map are filled, the "Run" button becomes available. When you click on it, the process of importing the selected DTM layers from the spatial database will start. Tables that were not previously marked are not included in the data import process.

  • 31.08.2021 GIS Server supports new algorithms of indexation of large spatial databases
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS Server version 10.1 has been developed. In the new version of the program the initial opening of large vector maps (from several million objects and more) after importing data from exchange formats or databases has been accelerated from tens of seconds to fractions of a second. There is improved a positioning of objects added onto a map in the display sequence chain, as when sorting a map, that improves the quality and ease of editing the map, speeds up the initial construction of the object tree when opening the datasets. Expansion of files of management by order of writing objects SIN has been replaced onto SI2.
    The list of supported DBMSs for working with spatial databases has been expanded: PostgreSQL with PostGIS extension (St_Geometry data type), Oracle with Oracle Spatial extension (SDO_GEOMETRY data type), Oracle DBMS with ArcSDE extension (St_Geometry data type), Microsoft SQL Server (geogfaphy data type). For MS SQL Server, a work with a 2-dimensional metric in the WGS84 (EPSG: 4326) coordinate system is supported. To connect databases running MS SQL Server, the user's computer must have Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Native Client installed.
    The parameters of connection to databases are configured by the GIS Server Administrator and are stored in a file with the DBM extension, which has an XML structure. The diagnostic protocol of the core libraries is located next to the protocol of the GIS Server operation and has the ".core.log" extension.
    When executing queries to the Databank of Digital Maps and Earth's Remote Sensing Data and drawing the contours of objects onto the data availability diagram, the generalization of the metric contour is performed to speed up the search for data in the area and display the diagrams. The composition of the supported metadata of vector maps and remote sensing data has been expanded (a list of types of digital maps and remote sensing data, data on the summary of sheets, information on the contract for the production of data).

  • 27.08.2021 In GIS Constructor 14 a support of spatial databases and vector exchange formats has been expanded
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS Constructor for Qt Designer SE version 14.0.0 has been developed for operating systems Astra Linux SE (release "Smolensk"), Alt 8 SP, CentOS, Ubuntu. The new version of the toolkit makes it possible to implement direct connection to large spatial databases (millions of records) in the developed GIS applications using the DBM format support. Information from the database is displayed in the form of vector terrain maps. GIS application will be able to simultaneously edit the contents of databases connected directly and through the GIS Server, perform an exchange of information between different databases, agree the coordinates and attributes of objects in different databases, jointly display information from different databases in the form of graphic layers, combine data with images , matrixes of heights, vector maps and data from various geoportals and web services. Spatial information from the database is displayed in the form of cartographic conventional symbols, which makes the editing process transparent for the user. The set of displayed and editable objects and their semantic characteristics can be flexibly specified using an SQL query. For convenient customization of the database connection parameters, the database connection administration dialog has been implemented. User-defined settings are saved in a file with a DBM extension, which has a standard XML file structure. The set of dialogs for importing spatial data has been extended with KML and DXF formats. Thanks to the use of optimized and high-performance functions of the GIS core, the speed of import from exchange formats has been increased, which can be critical both for embedded devices that have limitations on processor performance, and for high-performance systems, where it is necessary to use the available processor power as efficiently as possible.
    The initial opening of large vector maps, containing several million objects and more has been accelerated after importing data from exchange formats or databases - from tens of seconds to fractions of a second. There is improved a positioning of objects added onto a map in the display sequence chain, as when sorting a map. This improves the quality and ease of editing the map, speeds up the initial construction of the object tree when opening the datasets.
    In the new version of the program, the transformation of vector maps into a given coordinate system has been accelerated by 4-6 times. The transformation process is called on the fly when the data of maps and geoportals in different coordinate systems are added into one window. When transforming on the fly, a copy of the input map is created in the map subdirectory with a name containing the name of the passport file and the current date.
    Display of clusters used for grouping point conventional signs on a map has been improved. Into the cluster description the property "Display the first character in the cluster" has been added. Placing it in the position of the cluster sign will first display the first object in the cluster and then the cluster icon. In this case, the cluster icon can contain only the number of objects or other complementary elements of the conventional symbol. When drawing an object, various semantics can be taken into account, including links to graphic files, which makes the generalized sign more complex and informative.
    Into the graphical component of connecting geoportals a support for layers from the Rosreestr geoportal has been added: Cadastral okrug, Cadastral districts, Cadastral quarters, Land plots, Land plots put up for auction, Red lines, Unified real estate complexes. Geoportal provides data in vector tile form in pbf (Protocolbuffer Binary Format) format. The data contains the coordinates of objects, signatures of plots, semantic characteristics.
    The parameters of connection to geoportals can be flexibly configured for each user by editing the wmslist_ru.xml file.
    When importing a set of maps sheets of SXF and TXF format, specified by the list in the DIR file, the ability has been provided for transfer of sheets by longitude on +/-360 degrees. It allows to duplicate the columns of sheets in the western and/or eastern hemisphere for expansion of dimensions of work region up to -360/+360 degrees. To duplicate sheets, copy the required file with a different name (for example, rename 01-12.sxf to 01-12_west.sxf) and change its nomenclature so that all sheets in the region have a unique designation (for example, rename 01-12 to 01-12_west ). Then, in a text editor, add a line with a new name sxf or txf into the DIR file and press the tab after the file name and enter the direction of transfer (for example, -360 or +360). The recalculation of coordinates and sheet passport will be performed automatically when importing the work region by the DIR file.
    GIS Constructor is a set of geoinformation components for use in the visual programming environment of Qt Designer, which allows you to develop your own GIS applications. The visualization of the contents of digital maps is made in conventional symbols adopted for topographic, geographical and various special maps. Geoinformation system has ample opportunities for performing calculations, for providing display of spatial data on various graphic devices in standard and user systems of conventional symbols. The main functions can be executed in multithreaded mode. It supports automatic optimization of used memory for processing large amounts of data (tens of gigabytes) on limited resources (hundreds of megabytes).
    The toolkit is adapted for work on a wide range of operating systems (Astra Linux SE, ALT Linux, Elbrus, Ubuntu, CentOS, QNX) and architectures (Intel, Elbrus, PowerPC, SPARC, ARM). The toolkit includes components of visual designing the GIS applications and library of a multiplatform multithreaded GIS core. GIS Constructor provides a cross-platform MAPAPI interface that allows a programmer to implement development in an operating system convenient for it. The developer can release GIS applications for a set of operating systems by simple assembly with minimal changes to the program source code.

  • 23.08.2021 In GIS "Panorama" 14 the tools for creation and designing of digital terrain maps based on remote sensing data and video data have been added
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" version 14.0.1 has been developed. In the new version the tools for processing a photo and video data, point cloud data, digital mapping, display of sea maps, preparation of reports and others were updated.

    In the task "Share your photos with the coordinates of the shooting", the dialog "The movement of the track (video)" has been improved. The algorithm for sequential display of video files in the selected folder with automatic transition from file to file has been improved. The program builds a set of tracks based on the metadata of video files. Tracks are formed in the form of linear objects with a four-dimensional metric containing three-dimensional GPS coordinates of the camera and the recording time of key frames of video files. In the new implementation of the program, the smoothness of video data playback has been increased. Synchronization of camera position on the map was improved. An information line has been added containing the name of the current video file, date and time of shooting. This tool allows you to quickly set the position of an object at any time provided by a set of video files.

    The "Report Designer" task has been improved. Legend and explication maps are created in a conditional coordinate system, which eliminates distortion when added to a map created in a different projection. Maps with tables of legends and explication are created with a coordinate reference to the northeast corner of the designed map, which allows adding maps without additional positioning. In the Legend formation mode, the functions "Divide into blocks", "Split Block", "Combine blocks" have been added.
    The number of lines with conventional symbols of objects in a block can be changed. A block on the map is created in the form of a grouping of objects by semantics, which allows further general movement, deletion and other group operations.

    In the "Map Editor" task, the mode for creating objects the "Coordinate label" has been improved. There is added the ability to dynamically change the settings of the title, which is created onto the map next to the cursor. By right-clicking on the "Set font parameters" menu item, the font editing dialog is called up, in which you can change the color, height, name and other properties of the font. The new font values are stored in the object semantics the "Coordinate label". In the mode of Creating object by coordinates entered from the keyboard there is added a support for calculating the coordinates of a metric point using the specified initial coordinates of the point, azimuth and distance to the next point. In the Cut lists mode, the algorithm for cutting of objects specified by one list from objects specified by another list has been improved. When processing large amounts of data (hundreds of thousands of processed objects with thousands of internal contours), the operation time was reduced from several hours to minutes. The mode can be used, for example, for cutting islands in water bodies, glades in vegetation and for other objects. Processed objects are checked for self-intersections and automatically corrected. The contours of the cut objects are automatically matched to the processed objects, which significantly reduces the amount of manual work.

    In the File menu, the task has been added for creating a work region by coordinates to form a work region by the specified dimensions or nomenclatures of topographic map sheets. The task is called using the main menu item "File/New/Work region by coordinates".

    In the task of constructing labels by semantics of objects, the ability to apply arbitrary graphic labels not specified in the RSC classifier has been added. The choice of color, font, height, thickness and other parameters of the label is performed in the dialog, which is called by the button "Graphics". The location of the graphic label relative to the object being signed, filling and displaying the semantic characteristics is carried out according to the same algorithm as for the title from the map classifier. In the task "Control of label metrics" the ability has been added of processing the titles on the selected map or on all maps available for editing.

    The task "Map Passport" has been improved. On the "Sheet Metadata" page there is added the information about execution of summary of the sides of a map sheet with adjacent sheets. The summary of adjacent map sheets is a coordination of areal and linear objects of adjacent sheets, the contours of which go onto the sheet frames. Objects of adjacent sheets are considered coordinated in case of conformity of the points going onto the frame, and absence of contradictions of semantic characteristics. By default, the signs of sheet sides summary have the "Not installed" value. When matching two adjacent sheets for the corresponding side in the passport of the map, the value "Completed" is set. For maps with an arbitrary territory without division into nomenclature sheets, the values "Not required" are entered in the summary fields. On the "Metadata" page, the list of metadata saved in the ".meta.xml" file has been expanded. There is added a recording an information about the restrictions on the use of the dataset: information about the agreement (contract), under which the dataset was created, containing restrictions on the distribution and use of data. Improvements were made in order to ensure the maintenance of federal and regional collections of spatial data and the completeness of the metadata description.

    Displaying sea maps of S57/S52 standards has been improved. In the s57navy.rsc classifier for attributes that have a list of classified values (Attribute type: L - CATAIR, CATACH, ... TECSOU), property the "Repeat allowed" is set. When exporting and importing data, lists of attribute values (1,7,, 30) are written and read. For display of lists of values, into the combined title the new operating symbol ' r ' (#113.r) has been added, which allows to form a line from the list of attribute values, separating them with a space. There is refined a display of depth marks taking into account safety contours and taking into account depths on drying surfaces.

    Algorithms for storing "point cloud" data in MTD datasets have been improved. Packing data, taking into account the area of the processed area and the specified storage accuracy, allows you to reduce the size of created MTD files by up to 4 times, which can be from several tens of Gigabytes to Terabytes. New algorithms improve the accuracy of terrain description over a larger area and accelerate the construction of 3D terrain models.

    The task "Data list of map" has been improved. On the "Matrixes" bookmark in the context menu, a call of the new mode "Change of location of a matrix on dx/dy meters" has been added. The mode is intended for changing the binding of matrixes of height, layers and qualities of the document onto a specified value in meters. The processed matrixes must be available for editing. Changing the location is carried out both for one and for all matrixes of the document.

    The "Display/Inform window" item has been added into the Options menu to enable or disable a pop-up message that informs the operator about the result of the action performed in the map window.

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

    The task "Import of MTD-model from LAS-file" has been improved. The task carries out loading of MTD-models from LAS-files obtained by means of LIDAR (light detection and ranging) laser locators. The data of LAS-files can contain results of sounding of the earth or sea surface, atmosphere. The MTD-model contains the dot measurements sorted by tile that provides fast access to data for solving computational and analytical problems. The new mode of block filling of MTD-model reduces time of loading LAS-files in volume more than 8 GB by 3-5 times. Loading of control file LAS with 555 million points in volume of 14.4 GB is executed in 16 minutes.
    The list of supported formats of data for export of a matrix of heights has been expanded - TXT, TIFF, KMZ. The formed KMZ archive contains the KML (Keyhole Markup Language) project file and a set of pyramid tiles for the saved territory. The KML file contains a description of the matrix data parameters: the names and coordinates of the matrix binding, as well as the priority of their display.
    The task of creating a three-dimensional terrain map has been improved. Possibility of saving the model into DB3D format has been added. DB3D format is intended for storing and displaying pyramids of three-dimensional tiles packed together with metadata tables in SQLite format. It provides fast tile-based output of spatial information in accordance with the requested scale and territory. The volumetric tile matrix is of type GoogleCrs84Quad. Level of scaled texture detail of data and the coverage area are not limited. Surface textures are stored in JPEG and PNG formats. Saving a terrain model to the database accelerates the display of a three-dimensional terrain model in desktop and Web-applications, makes it possible to work with the model later without the initial cartographical data.

    In KB "Panorama" the GIS ToolKit of version 14 has been developed for creation of GIS-applications in the environment of C ++ Builder, Delphi Embarcadero. The new version has increased the speed of performing the search and analytical operations on geodata by using the functions of the updated GIS core.
    The initial opening of large vector maps, containing several million objects and more has been accelerated after importing data from exchange formats or databases - from tens of seconds to fractions of a second. There is improved a positioning of objects added onto a map in the display sequence chain, as when sorting a map. This improves the quality and ease of editing the map, speeds up the initial construction of the object tree when opening the datasets.
    In the program the display of raster data limited by a framework has been improved. The image of such rasters is cut out by a contour of a frame of any complexity. The frame can be set by any closed contour, or by a selected object. The frame can contain thousands of points and thousands of contours, as well as many times exceeds the raster by the area. A large number of frame points decreases the speed of displaying the raster. To speed up the display of rasters, an optimization of the raster frame during recording has been added - all frame contours are cut out by the sizes of each raster. When you set a region frame, an optimized frame is written into each raster of the coverage. When opening the rasters and matrixes of heights created earlier, frame optimization is performed automatically (the sign of frame optimization is entered into the file). This approach allows you to speed up the display of both new raster data and previously created ones.
    Display of clusters used for grouping point conventional signs on a map has been improved. Into the cluster description the property "Display the first character in the cluster" has been added. Placing it in the position of the cluster sign will first display the first object in the cluster and then the cluster icon. In this case, the cluster icon can contain only the number of objects or other complementary elements of the conventional symbol. When drawing an object, various semantics can be taken into account, including links to graphic files, which makes the generalized sign more complex and informative.
    Support has been added for files-links to maps located on the GIS Server. For example, a text file with any extension (".sitx", ".mpt" or other) can contain a string in UTF-8 encoding: REF HOST#gisserver.ru#2047#ALIAS#kaliningrad.mptz. When you open this file, an automatic transition to the data on the GIS Server will be performed.
    The GIS ToolKit consists of a set of visual components (supplied in source code) and API functions of the GIS core for direct access to spatial data. The toolkit is intended for the development of client-server and desktop 32-bit and 64-bit applications that require processing and visualization of spatial data. Spatial data can be located both at the workplace (direct access to data) and in a local network or the Internet (components of access to the GIS Server or data exchange by international protocols are used).
    The new version of the program is available for download on the Download page.

  • 17.08.2021 Map of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan on the geoportal "Bank of spatial data" has been updated
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" prepared and placed the map of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan on the geoportal "Bank of spatial data". Source data was obtained from Geofabrik website. To work with the map, you can use the GIS Panorama Mini program or other software products of KB "Panorama".

    The map was led to the modernised classifier of large-scale plans of scale 1: 5 000 (map5000m). Publishing of updates in bank of spatial data is made by using the program of Databank of digital maps and remote sensing data. Publishing contents of bank of spatial data on the geoportal and data access for downloading are implemented by means of GIS WebServer SE.

    Free maps on the basis of OpenStreetMap data are available for download on the page "Digital maps".

  • 16.08.2021 In "Panorama-editor" version 14 the new tools of digital mapping have been implemented
    In KB "Panorama" the program "Panorama-Editor" version 14 has been developed. In the new version the tools of creating and updating special maps, displaying of remote sensing data, import and export of the spatial data, construction of reports and others were updated.
    In the "Map Editor" task on the "Edit height" panel, the mode "Delete 4-dimensional metric of objects" has been added. The mode allows for a selected object or for selected objects to convert 4-dimensional coordinates, containing in the 4-th dimension a floating-point number (M) or a pair of integer values (F), into 3-dimensional coordinates. The mode "Delete height from metrics of objects" converts the 4-dimensional or 3-dimensional coordinates into 2-dimensional coordinates. On the "Object creating" panel, the mode of drawing an object of the TITLE type has been improved. For precise binding of the title to the object, the mechanism of capture of the object point is used when the cursor is hovering over the vicinity of the point. Capture mode starts when you select the "Capture and copy object node" pop-up menu item or when you press the K hotkey. The title metrics will contain exact coordinates of the chosen vertex of object.
    The task "Lists of objects" has been improved, which allows performing operations on sets of objects: selection, union, intersection, search for intersecting objects with different types of intersection, search by distance, construction of zones and others. "Cutting objects by lists" mode was added for cutting the objects of the reference list from the objects of the edited list. The reference list should contain areal objects, the contours of which will be used to edit the objects of the edited list. Objects from the reference list are not edited, except for the case when the intersection points with the edited object are inserted into the reference object.
    In the properties of the symbolical semantics in the "Classifier Editor", you can enter a string pattern that defines the valid characters in the string value or a template for a special string, for example, GUID, cadastral number, and others. For strings that have a value template, when you enter a value in the Select Object dialog box, its compliance with the template is checked.
    The task "Control of absolute heights" has been improved. The "Control of lack of base and secondary horizontals" mode is divided into two separate modes - "Control of lack of base" and "Control of lack of secondary". Depending on the area, additional horizontals not always must be present on the map. In this case, disabling the control of lack of secondary horizontals allows you to reduce the number of messages issued by the program, which facilitates the analysis of the control results. In the task the Quality control of a vector map, a check of the values of symbolic semantics to a template, if it is specified in the Classifier Editor, is added. "Excluding topology" option has been added into the control of metric's double points. When the "Excluding topology" option is enabled, the presence of double points is performed only according to the metric of the controlled object.
    The "Add Photos" task from the "File" menu has been improved. Photos are displayed on the map as icons (thumbnails). When the map is increased, the photo is enlarged, allowing you to see the photo in more detail. The algorithm of automatic clustering has been used to the grouping of photos on a map when scaling. Densely located objects with photos are replaced with the first object in a cluster with indicating the number of photos in the given cell. To load photos, you must select a folder with photos. Upon completion of the selection, a service map containing point objects in the form of photographs will be added to the open document. A link to the photo files will be written into these objects. The service map is saved in the document folder and is included into the document maps list. When you reopen the document, the map with photos opens automatically. If necessary, a list of all open data can be saved into an MPT or MPTZ project.
    Display of clusters used for grouping point conventional signs on a map has been improved. Into the cluster description the property "Display the first character in the cluster" has been added. Placing it in the position of the cluster sign will first display the first object in the cluster and then the cluster icon. In this case, the cluster icon can contain only the number of objects or other complementary elements of the conventional symbol. When drawing an object, various semantics can be taken into account, including links to graphic files, which makes the generalized sign more complex and informative.
    Display of raster data limited by a framework has been improved. The image of such rasters is cut out by a contour of a frame of any complexity. The frame can be set by any closed contour, or by a selected object. The frame can contain thousands of points and thousands of contours, as well as many times exceeds the raster by the area. A large number of frame points decreases the speed of displaying the raster. To speed up the display of rasters, an optimization of the raster frame during recording has been added - all frame contours are cut out by the sizes of each raster. When opening the rasters and matrixes of heights created earlier, frame optimization is performed automatically (the sign of frame optimization is entered into the file). This approach allows you to speed up the display of both new raster data and previously created ones.
    In the task "Report Designer" the ability has been added for creating a project of arbitrary size. When drawing a new inset of the map, it became possible to draw it exactly along the frame of the work area, that is, to create a general background of the document. Controls have been added for the order in which objects are displayed on the document ("Above all", "Below all"). A new "Open Stamp" mode has been added, which allows you to add one or several previously prepared stamp templates (corner stamps, headers and footers, etc.) into the document with the ability to preview the image of the inserted stamp. The new modes complement the task tools that provide fast and high-quality creation and design of graphic documents.
    In the task "Saving a vector map to files of graphic formats" an export of an image of an open document into the KMZ format has been added. The formed KMZ archive contains the KML project file and a set of raster tiles pyramid for the saved territory. The KML file contains a description of the raster data parameters - the names and coordinates of the rasters binding, as well as the priority of their display. In addition to the KMZ format, the task can save images into BMP, TIFF, JPEG, PNG and RSW formats. A fragment of a digital map document of any type and composition can be saved, including vector maps, images and matrices, as well as geospatial data from external Internet resources (WMS and WFS - services) and databases. In the task, it is possible to save the map image by the selected area, by the page format and by the dimensions of the selected objects, for example, by the dimensions of the frames of the nomenclature sheets.
    In the task "Export of matrix of height" the list of saved file formats has been expanded. Along with TXT and TIFF files,the ability was added to save a digital elevation matrix into a KMZ file. The formed KMZ file is an archive with the KML project and a set of tiles - single-channel GeoTIFF files with data on the heights of the relief. The KML file contains a description of the data: file names and tile binding coordinates, as well as the priority of their display. The task is called using the main menu item "File - Export to .. - Matrix (TXT, TIFF, KMZ)".
    The initial opening of large vector maps, containing several million objects and more has been accelerated after importing data from exchange formats or databases from tens of seconds to fractions of a second. There is improved a positioning of objects added onto a map in the display sequence chain, as when sorting a map. This improves the quality and ease of editing the map, speeds up the initial construction of the object tree when opening the datasets.

  • 11.08.2021 Workstation of Agronomist uses artificial intelligence for interpretation of arable land contours
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of Agronomist" version 14 has been developed. The new version adds the ability to automatically build maps of land holdings using the GeoAlert.io service.
    The service uses a neural network to decrypt land plots and determine the boundaries of the contours of agricultural land. Information processing is performed on the local territory bounded by the polygon indicated on the map. Building a vector model of working areas of arable land in GeoJSON format is carried out on the basis of automatically selected actual data of average (10 m/px) and high resolution (1.2 m/px). The resulting maps of farmland have an accuracy comparable to the manual work of specialist-cartographers, but are created in much less time.
    On the basis of the digital model of farmland, all agrotechnical calculations performed by the program are carried out: conducting passports of fields, building thematic cartograms, obtaining vegetation indices, maps of heterogeneity and need for nitrogen, calculating the application of fertilizer doses, and others.
    "Workstation of Agronomist" is included into the line of agricultural GIS KB "Panorama", which also includes "Panorama AGRO", Panorama AGRO Service and GIS WebServer AGRO. The combination of these products with each other, as well as their combination with the GIS "Panorama" and GIS Server, allow, depending on the specified tasks, to configure corporate and regional agricultural geographic information systems of any complexity.

  • 03.08.2021 In GIS WebService SE the tools of analysis, interpretation and output of requests results have been improved
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebService SE version 14 has been developed. The new version allows to sort results of requests execution in formats GML/JSON by the value of chosen semantics, the layer name or the object name. Service can filter objects by semantics, using group operations of search for objects. The filter can be set in GML/JSON formats, on the basis of the international standard OGC Filter Encoding 2.0 Encoding Standart 09-026r1 and ISO/DIS 19143. Possibility has been added for an output of statistics by result of the answer: total of objects, quantity of objects on localizations, semantics keys and their number , the objects codes and their number. Support of multilines and multipoints was added when selecting and loading objects in GML/JSON formats.
    Service supports the international standards OGC 05-078r4 version 1.1.0 and OGC 02-070 version 1.0.0 - SLD (StyledLayerDescriptor). SLD-styles allow to change dynamically the image for the user, without changing the classifier. Styles and filters of objects can be applied in requests on thematic mapping.
    In service the possibility has been implemented for the publication of the same map several times due to the formation of MPT projects. This will allow you to set additional filters on layers, such as localization, semantics, keys, object types, and others. The layer will be displayed to the selected users in accordance with the predefined restrictions. For layers, consisting of MPT project, the ability of editing a specific map has been added.
    In service the new format of the answer to all requests in JSON format has been developed, in addition to the already existing XML-RPC standard. Support of antialiasing was added when drawing polygons in Linux systems. Display of rasters by a framework has been accelerated.
    The list of supported requests has been expanded. The new request of getting the percentage of data loading in a layer is added. Some of the layers that take large volumes of spatial data, when first opened, take time to prepare them by the service. In the service administrator the possibility has been added of monitoring the loading of a layer, updating a cache by a database or from the removed GIS Server. Parametres of requests for calculating azimuth, directional angle and distance were expanded. Possibility of calculations by arbitrary EPSG code has been implemented. The new request for building thematic maps using a CSV file has been added.
    GIS WebService SE supports all international standards (OGC WFS, WFS-T, WMS, WMTS, WCS), which are used to transfer and display spatial data. The program provides the issuance of tiles for any user or local coordinate system. The application is implemented on Windows and Linux platforms, is compatible with Apache, IIS and nginx web servers.

  • 30.07.2021 In GIS "Operator" 14 the tools for studying the territory and creating special maps have been expanded
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Operator" version 14 has been developed.In the new version the tools have been updated for collecting and analyzing statistical information and thematic mapping, which can be used for studying the territory, assessment of the combat potential, planning of operations and solving the tasks of topographic and geodetic support.

    The "Add Photos" task has been improved, which ensures the placement of photographs of the territory and terrain objects on the background of the map. Photos are displayed on the map as icons (thumbnails). When the map is increased, the photo is enlarged, allowing you to see the photo in more detail. The algorithm of automatic clustering has been used to the grouping of photos on a map when scaling. Densely located objects with photos are replaced with the first object in a cluster with indicating the number of photos in the given cell. To load photos, you must select a folder with photos. Upon completion of the selection, a service map containing point objects in the form of photographs will be added to the open document. A link to the photo files will be written into these objects. The service map is saved in the document folder and is included into the document maps list. When you reopen the document, the map with photos opens automatically. If necessary, a list of all open data can be saved into an MPT or MPTZ project.

    Display of clusters used for grouping point conventional signs on a map has been improved. Into the cluster description the property "Display the first character in the cluster" has been added. Placing it in the position of the cluster sign will first display the first object in the cluster and then the cluster icon. In this case, the cluster icon can contain only the number of objects or other complementary elements of the conventional symbol. When drawing an object, various semantics can be taken into account, including links to graphic files, which makes the generalized sign more complex and informative.

    Display of remote sensing data mosaic has been accelerated. To speed up the display of rasters, an optimization of the raster frame during recording has been added - all frame contours are cut out by the sizes of each raster. The initial opening of large vector maps (from several million objects and more) has been accelerated after importing data from exchange formats or databases from tens of seconds to fractions of a second. There is improved a positioning of objects added onto a map in the display sequence chain, as when sorting a map. This improves the quality and ease of editing the map, speeds up the initial construction of the object tree when opening the datasets.

    In the task "Report Designer" the ability has been added for creating a project of arbitrary size. When drawing a new inset of the map, it became possible to draw it exactly along the frame of the work area, that is, to create a general background of the document. Controls have been added for the order in which objects are displayed on the document ("Above all", "Below all"). A new "Open Stamp" mode has been added, which allows you to add one or several previously prepared stamp templates (corner stamps, headers and footers, etc.) into the document with the ability to preview the image of the inserted stamp. The new modes complement the task tools that provide fast and high-quality creation and design of graphic documents.

    The "Navigator 3D" task provides the construction of a three-dimensional terrain model and its saving into the database of the DB3D format. A three-dimensional model consists of two parts: a relief model (of the earth's surface) and three-dimensional models of terrain objects. The elevation model and three-dimensional models of objects are saved into the database of the DB3D format tile-by-tile at user-specified scale levels. At the maximum level (on a large scale), the most detailed terrain model is created. At the minimum level (on a small scale), a simplified model is built. After saving a three-dimensional terrain model, the resulting database is automatically connected to the project for displaying the model. Saving a terrain model to a database speeds up the display of a three-dimensional terrain model in desktop and Web-applications, makes it possible to work with the model later without the original cartographic data.

    In the task "Saving a vector map to files of graphic formats" an export of an image of an open document into the KMZ format has been added. The formed KMZ archive contains the KML project file and a set of raster tiles pyramid for the saved territory. In the task, it is possible to save the map image by the selected area, by the page format and by the dimensions of the selected objects, for example, by the dimensions of the frames of the nomenclature sheets.

    In the task "Export of matrix of height" the list of saved file formats has been expanded. Along with TXT and TIFF files,the ability was added to save a digital elevation matrix into a KMZ file. The task is called using the main menu item "File - Export to .. - Matrix (TXT, TIFF, KMZ)".

    In the task "Creation of thematic map" the mode "Coloring by unique values of semantics" has been added. At a choice of this mode a coloring of the areal objects with identical value of chosen semantics into one color is carried out. Unlike other modes of construction, this mode allows you to carry out construction for any type of semantics, including for symbolical semantics.

    The "Show statistics" task provides the construction of thematic maps for the countries of the World and the regions of Russia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, India, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and other countries based on the built-in maps of the administrative boundaries of the regions. Statistical data should be presented in the form of a table in CSV format. The table can consist of two or more columns, one of which must contain the names of countries, regions of countries, or municipalities that are part of the selected region. For constructing a thematic map it is necessary to choose a statistics file (a text file of CSV type) and region corresponding to it. The result of construction contains colored territories of administrative units, a scale of ranges of statistical data's values and a list of names of territorial objects with the values of the selected statistical data. The type of the scale depends on the range of statistical data values. The resulting map can be printed, or saved in files of vector (SVG, EMF) and raster (PNG, TIFF) formats.

    The task "Load coordinates from a Microsoft Office Excel file (*.xls, *.xlsx)" has been improved. The task allows you to plot objects on the map from an Excel file for all lines or for a range of lines specified by the user. The mode of forming a list of correspondences between table fields and object semantics has been updated. The semantics for a list can be found by name, code, or key, which allows you to speed up the process of creating a list. In the modes "Save/Restore settings" the ability has been added to save the list of configured semantics in the ini - user file. "Delete correspondence list" mode has been added, designed to delete the entire list if it is not up-to-date, for example, after restoring parameters from the settings file.

    In the task "Go to a given point of the region", it is possible to insert data lines with coordinates X and Y, separated by a space, tabulation, comma or semicolon, from the clipboard in one action, into two coordinate fields (New point) at once.

  • 29.07.2021 Training video data on outlining a land plot has been prepared
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a video lesson on the formation of an XML document of the land survey plan of version 06 for the formation of land plot by means of outlining with the preservation of a land plot, the outlining of which is carried out within the changed boundaries. Users of the "Workstation of cadastral engineer", GIS "Panorama" or "Panorama-editor" can form XML documents of the land survey plan of version 06 using a complex of geodesy calculations.
    In the video lesson the features of preparation of the data, a filling the mandatory characteristics and formation of XML file of the land survey plan of version 06 according to the Order of the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation from December, 8th, 2015 № 921 have been shown. On the basis of this order in software products of KB "Panorama" the classifier of conventional symbols survey.v5.rscz has been developed. In the classifier there is implemented a general list of layers, semantic characteristics and objects for display of cadastral data on cadastral maps and other cadastral documents.
    Land survey plan can be formed for one or several land plots depending on a variant of a selecting the objects on a cadastral map. Procedures the "Formation of electronic XML document by XML scheme of the land survey plan version 06" and "Formation of land survey plan" provides support of formation of the XML document and the paper report by one of the following options:
    - one land survey plan for the object selected on the map;
    - one land survey plan for the multi-contour land plot;
    - one land survey plan for group of the selected one-contour land plots;
    - several land survey plans for a group of selected one-contour land plots;
    - one land survey plan for one or several created parts of the selected land plot (one or multi-contour).

    You can get acquainted with the training materials in the "Video lessons" section.

  • 28.07.2021 In GIS "Panorama" 14 the tools of spatial analysis and processing of geodata from various sources have been expanded
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" version 14 has been developed. In the new version, the tools for thematic mapping, three-dimensional modeling, processing of photo and video data, remote sensing data display, import and export of spatial data, digital mapping, reporting and others have been updated.

    The "Show statistics" task provides the construction of thematic maps for the countries of the World and the regions of Russia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, India, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and other countries based on the built-in maps of the administrative boundaries of the regions. Statistical data should be presented in the form of a table in CSV format. The table can consist of two or more columns one of which should contain names of subjects of the Russian Federation or municipal districts of the subject of the Russian Federation. For constructing a thematic map it is necessary to choose a statistics file (a text file of CSV type) and region corresponding to it. The program automatically determines the separator characters for table fields, columns containing a key field and a value field, selects the optimal (regular or logarithmic) range of values (multiples of 2, 5, 10) based on a set of values, selects standard dividers to display large values in thousands, millions and billions, calculates the precision of the output of small values. The result of construction contains colored territories of administrative units, a scale of ranges of statistical data's values and a list of names of territorial objects with the values of the selected statistical data. The type of the scale depends on the range of statistical data values. The resulting map can be printed, or saved in files of vector (SVG, EMF) and raster (PNG, TIFF) formats. Examples of ready-made thematic maps (MPT files) are located in the folder: c:\Users\Public\Documents\Panorama\Panorama14\data\thematic.
    In the task "Creation of thematic map" the mode "Coloring by unique values of semantics" has been added. At a choice of this mode a coloring of the areal objects with identical value of chosen semantics into one color is carried out. Unlike other modes of construction, this mode allows you to carry out construction for any type of semantics, including for symbolical semantics.
    The "Add Photos" task from the "File" menu has been improved. Photos are displayed on the map as icons (thumbnails). When the map is increased, the photo is enlarged, allowing you to see the photo in more detail. The algorithm of automatic clustering has been used to the grouping of photos on a map when scaling. Densely located objects with photos are replaced with the first object in a cluster with indicating the number of photos in the given cell. To load photos, you must select a folder with photos. Upon completion of the selection, a service map containing point objects in the form of photographs will be added to the open document. A link to the photo files will be written into these objects. The service map is saved in the document folder and is included into the document maps list. When you reopen the document, the map with photos opens automatically. If necessary, a list of all open data can be saved into an MPT or MPTZ project.
    In the task "Demonstration of a photo- and video data with a geolocation", the dialog "The movement of the track (video)" has been improved. The mode "Directory selection" has been added, which allows you to view video files with a GPS track located in the selected directory. During playback, video files are loaded one by one, according to their chronological order. For example, the directory may contain video files from a car DVR along the route of movement. When you select the «Directory selection» mode, video files with a track will be automatically loaded for viewing.
    Display of clusters used for grouping point conventional signs on a map has been improved. Into the cluster description the property "Display the first character in the cluster" has been added. Placing it in the position of the cluster sign will first display the first object in the cluster and then the cluster icon. In this case, the cluster icon can contain only the number of objects or other complementary elements of the conventional symbol. When drawing an object, various semantics can be taken into account, including links to graphic files, which makes the generalized sign more complex and informative.
    Display of raster data limited by a framework has been improved. The image of such rasters is cut out by a contour of a frame of any complexity. The frame can be set by any closed contour, or by a selected object. The frame can contain thousands of points and thousands of contours, as well as many times exceeds the raster by the area. A large number of frame points decreases the speed of displaying the raster. To speed up the display of rasters, an optimization of the raster frame during recording has been added - all frame contours are cut out by the sizes of each raster. When setting a region frame, into each coverage raster an optimized frame is written. Frames with a minimum number of points (from 4 to 20 - the top number depends on the quality of the initial frame) are recorded into the rasters that intersect the contour. The frame is not written into the rasters that are inside the frame. A fictitious 4-point frame is written into the rasters that are outside the frame (to disable the raster display). When opening the rasters and matrixes of heights created earlier, frame optimization is performed automatically (the sign of frame optimization is entered into the file). This approach allows you to speed up the display of both new raster data and previously created ones.

    In the "Map Editor" task on the "Edit height" panel, the mode "Delete 4-dimensional metric of objects" has been added. The mode allows for a selected object or for selected objects to convert 4-dimensional coordinates, containing in the 4-th dimension a floating-point number (M) or a pair of integer values (F), into 3-dimensional coordinates. The mode "Delete height from metrics of objects" converts the 4-dimensional or 3-dimensional coordinates into 2-dimensional coordinates. On the "Object creating" panel, the mode of drawing an object of the TITLE type has been improved. For precise binding of the title to the object, the mechanism of capture of the object point is used when the cursor is hovering over the vicinity of the point. Capture mode starts when you select the "Capture and copy object node" pop-up menu item or when you press the K hotkey. The title metrics will contain exact coordinates of the chosen vertex of object.

    The dialog "Open a map DBM" has been improved, which displays the contents of tables of spatial databases PostgreSQL, Oracle or MS SQL Server. "Saving data to a CSV file" mode has been added, which allows you to save database table records into a text file of CSV format. Before saving to a file, the user can select the displayed table fields and set a filter onto the table to select the required records that will be saved into the CSV file. In the "Database" task, into the "Standard form" dialog, a mode has been added for saving records into a CSV file. When saving table entries in Excel formats, you can choose the landscape or portrait orientation of the report.
    Controls have been added for the order in which objects are displayed on the document ("Above all", "Below all"). A new "Open Stamp" mode has been added, which allows you to add one or several previously prepared stamp templates (corner stamps, headers and footers, etc.) into the document with the ability to preview the image of the inserted stamp. The new modes complement the task tools that provide fast and high-quality creation and design of graphic documents.

    In the properties of the symbolical semantics in the "Classifier Editor", you can enter a string pattern that defines the valid characters in the string value or a template for a special string, for example, GUID, cadastral number, and others. For strings that have a value template, when you enter a value in the Select Object dialog box, its compliance with the template is checked.

    The "Navigator 3D" task provides saving of the constructed three-dimensional terrain model to the database of the DB3D format. A three-dimensional model consists of two parts: a relief model (of the earth's surface) and three-dimensional models of terrain objects. The elevation model is formed on the basis of spatial data included into the project: digital vector maps (including spatial databases), elevation matrices, tin-models, mtd models, aerial and space images (including tile pyramids). Elevation data is used to construct the terrain surface. Textures are formed from digital map images and raster data and superimposed onto the surface. The object composition of maps, which is used to create textures, is customized in the dialog "3D model display composition". Three-dimensional models of objects are formed on the basis of typical 3D conventional symbols assigned to objects in the Classifier Editor task, including those imported from exchange formats (COLLADA). The elevation model and three-dimensional models of objects are saved in the database of the DB3D format tile-by-tile at user-specified scale levels. At the maximum level (on a large scale), the most detailed terrain model is created. At the minimum level (on a small scale), a simplified model is built. After saving a three-dimensional terrain model, the resulting database is automatically connected to the project for displaying the model. DB3D format is intended for storing and displaying pyramids of three-dimensional tiles packed together with metadata tables in SQLite format. It provides fast tile-based output of spatial information in accordance with the requested scale and area. The volumetric tile matrix is of type GoogleCrs84Quad. Data granularity and area of coverage are unlimited. Surface textures are stored in JPEG and PNG formats. Saving a terrain model to a database speeds up the display of a three-dimensional terrain model in desktop and Web-applications, makes it possible to work with the model later without the original cartographic data.

    The task "Lists of objects" has been improved, which allows performing operations on sets of objects: selection, union, intersection, search for intersecting objects with different types of intersection, search by distance, construction of zones and others. "Cutting objects by lists" mode was added for cutting the objects of the reference list from the objects of the edited list. The reference list should contain areal objects, the contours of which will be used to edit the objects of the edited list. Objects from the reference list are not edited, except for the case when the intersection points with the edited object are inserted into the reference object.
    The task "Control of absolute heights" has been improved. The "Control of lack of base and secondary horizontals" mode is divided into two separate modes - "Control of lack of base" and "Control of lack of secondary". Depending on the area, additional horizontals not always must be present on the map. In this case, disabling the control of lack of secondary horizontals allows you to reduce the number of messages issued by the program, which facilitates the analysis of the control results. In the task the Quality control of a vector map, a check of the values of symbolic semantics to a template, if it is specified in the Classifier Editor, is added. "Excluding topology" option has been added into the control of metric's double points. When the "Excluding topology" option is enabled, the presence of double points is performed only according to the metric of the controlled object.

    In the task "Go to a given point of the region", it is possible to insert data lines with coordinates X and Y, separated by a space, tabulation, comma or semicolon, from the clipboard in one action, into two coordinate fields (New point) at once.

    The task "Load coordinates from a Microsoft Office Excel file (*.xls, *.xlsx)" has been improved. The task allows you to plot objects on the map from an Excel file for all lines or for a range of lines specified by the user. The mode of forming a list of correspondences between table fields and object semantics has been updated. The semantics for a list can be found by name, code, or key, which allows you to speed up the process of creating a list. In the modes "Save/Restore settings" the ability has been added to save the list of configured semantics in the ini - user file. "Delete correspondence list" mode has been added, designed to delete the entire list if it is not up-to-date, for example, after restoring parameters from the settings file.

    In the task "Saving a vector map to files of graphic formats" an export of an image of an open document into the KMZ format has been added. The formed KMZ archive contains the KML project file and a set of raster tiles pyramid for the saved territory. The KML file contains a description of the raster data parameters - the names and coordinates of the rasters binding, as well as the priority of their display. In addition to the KMZ format, the task can save images into BMP, TIFF, JPEG, PNG and RSW formats. A fragment of a digital map document of any type and composition can be saved, including vector maps, images and matrices, as well as geospatial data from external Internet resources (WMS and WFS - services) and databases. In the task, it is possible to save the map image by the selected area, by the page format and by the dimensions of the selected objects, for example, by the dimensions of the frames of the nomenclature sheets.

    In the task "Export of matrix of height" the list of saved file formats has been expanded. Along with TXT and TIFF files,the ability was added to save a digital elevation matrix into a KMZ file. The formed KMZ file is an archive with the KML project and a set of tiles - single-channel GeoTIFF files with data on the heights of the relief. The KML file contains a description of the data: file names and tile binding coordinates, as well as the priority of their display. The task is called using the main menu item "File - Export to .. - Matrix (TXT, TIFF, KMZ)".

    The initial opening of large vector maps (from several million objects and more) has been accelerated after importing data from exchange formats or databases from tens of seconds to fractions of a second. There is improved a positioning of objects added onto a map in the display sequence chain, as when sorting a map. This improves the quality and ease of editing the map, speeds up the initial construction of the object tree when opening the datasets.

    Support has been added for files-links to maps located on the GIS Server. For example, a text file with any extension (".sitx", ".mpt" or other) can contain a string in UTF-8 encoding: .REF OST#gisserver.ru#2047#ALIAS#kaliningrad.mptz. When you open this file, an automatic transition to the data on the GIS Server will be performed.
    The first version of the GIS "Panorama" for MS-DOS was developed in 1991. Since 1992, GIS has been used in the Topographic Service of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation to solve the problems of topographic and geodetic support. Since 2001 GIS "Panorama" has been used at the enterprises of the Federal Service for Geodesy and Cartography of Russia to create digital topographic maps and city plans.

  • 21.07.2021 GIS Panorama Mini for Astra Linux SE provides obtaining, search and viewing of spatial information from geoportals and bases of geodata
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS Panorama Mini version 13.4.2 for OS Astra Linux SE (Releases "Smolensk" and "Oryol") has been developed. The new version adds the ability to obtain vector information from the layers of the Rosreestr geoportal: cadastral okrug, cadastral districts, cadastral quarters, land plots, land plots put up for auction, red lines, unified real estate complexes and others. The data contains coordinates, signatures of plots, semantic characteristics of objects. Obtaining vector information from a geoportal is provided through the implementation of data processing in a vector tile form in the pbf (Protocolbuffer Binary Format) format. The parameters of connection to geoportals can be flexibly configured for each user by editing the wmslist_ru.xml file.
    At joint display of maps and geoportals, a transformation of vector data to a projection and coordinate system of a geoportal is carried out. In the new version of the program, the transformation of vector maps into a given coordinate system has been accelerated by 4-6 times. The transformation process is called on the fly when the data of maps and geoportals in different coordinate systems are added into one window. When transforming on the fly, a copy of the source map is created in the map subdirectory with a name containing the name of the passport file and the current date.
    The program adds the ability to directly connect to large spatial databases containing millions of records for displaying and editing in the form of vector maps in cartographic conventional symbols. Direct editing of databases records with the fields of different type containing coordinates of objects is provided. Database connection parameters (table, data view or SQL query) are customized in the database connection administration dialog and saved in a file with DBM extension, which has an XML structure. The settings provide for entering the name of the DBM file, the method and parameters of connecting to the database, a creating the lists of displayed and edited objects and their semantic characteristics (attributes). GIS allows you to simultaneously edit the content of databases connected directly and through the GIS Server, to carry out an information exchange between different databases, to agree the coordinates and attributes of objects in different databases, jointly display information from different databases in the form of graphic layers, to combine data with images, matrixes heights, vector maps and data from various geoportals and web services. Databases editing is performed by means of tasks the Map Editor, Road net and others in an interactive or automated mode.
    The program accelerated the display, editing and search by area of objects for vector maps of large volume (from hundreds of thousands to tens of millions of objects in one set - a layer) located locally or on the GIS Server. This is implemented by optimizing the construction and updating of spatial indexes of objects used for displaying and searching vector data.
    The "Cut selected objects" item has been added into the "Edit" menu. This mode allows you to simultaneously copy to the clipboard and delete selected objects on the map. Cutting of selected objects is carried out by the Ctrl+X hotkey combination. "Quick deletion" of selected objects without copying to the clipboard - Ctrl+Delete.
    To find the causes of repeated errors in the program, the "Diagnostic log" mode has been added. If some action with the program causes an error, then its online diagnostics can be carried out by activating the diagnostic log and repeating the action that caused the error. The generated log file with a description of the error can be sent to the technical support of KB "Panorama" to eliminate the problem.

Users of the GIS "Panorama" can use the tool for determining on a map the areas flooded by water. The training material demonstrates the main stages of building a flood zone for the Kanopelka River.
    Flood zones are related to zones with special conditions for the use of territories and are displayed on all types of documentation developed when planning the development of territories. This is necessary so that a certain regime is observed in these territories in order to prevent the mutual negative impact of human life and the environment. For example, in flood zones it is forbidden to place new settlements, cemeteries, cattle burial grounds, waste dumps. This is important, as flooding can lead not only to large property losses, but also human casualties.
    The tool "Building a flood zones" is intended for definition of a zone of flooding on a map, using the information from a matrix of heights. Users can change values of level of water rising, width of a zone of flooding, select from the list a matrix of heights, which is used for calculations.
    As a result of program work two problems are solved: coordinates of boundary points of a flood zone and level of rising of water in each point within the flooding zone are calculated. All values are placed in the matrix of qualities. In addition to obtaining a matrix of qualities, it is possible to create an object showing the boundaries of the spill (flooded zone).

    The training material demonstrates the construction of a thematic map against the background of an open map of the Russian Federation, which is part of the installation. The map contains objects of administrative division of the Russian Federation: territories of federal districts, subjects and regions. The thematic map is built all over Russia or for the specified subject of the Russian Federation.

    When the task is called, statistical analysis of the data occurs, as a result of which the values of the range boundaries are automatically calculated. The type of the scale depends on the dispersion of statistical data values. Result of construction is the thematic map containing the colored territories of subjects of the Russian Federation or administrative regions, a scale of values ranges of the statistical data and the list of subjects of the Russian Federation with values of the chosen statistical data. The resulting map can be printed or saved into files of vector (SVG, EMF) and raster (PNG , TIFF) formats.

  • 15.06.2021 GIS ToolKit expands possibilities of export/import of spatial data in SXF, TXF, DIR, TXT, MAP, SIT, SITX, S57, KML/KMZ, MIF/MID formats
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS ToolKit version 13.4.3 has been developed for creating GIS applications in the environment of C ++ Builder, Delphi Embarcadero. In the new version the TMapDataConversion component has been added. It provides export/import of spatial data presented in the formats SXF, TXF, DIR, TXT, MAP, SIT, SITX, S57, KML / KMZ, MIF / MID. The component is based on the use of high-performance GIS core functions.
    When importing a set of maps sheets of SXF and TXF format, specified by the list in the DIR file, the ability has been added for transfer of sheets by longitude on +/-360 degrees. It allows to duplicate the columns of sheets in the western and\or eastern hemisphere for expansion of dimensions of work region up to -360/+360 degrees. To duplicate sheets, copy the required file with a different name (for example, rename 01-12.sxf to 01-12_west.sxf) and change its nomenclature so that all sheets in the region have a unique designation (for example, rename 01-12 to 01-12_west ). Then, in a text editor, add a line with a new name sxf or txf into the DIR file and press the tab after the file name and enter the direction of transfer (for example, -360 or +360). The recalculation of coordinates and sheet passport will be performed automatically when importing the work region by the DIR file.
    When exporting to KML format, a customizing the styles of polygons, lines and icons is automated according to the current graphical parameters of objects on the map. Icons for point objects are generated in png format in the \kml_name.icons folder. Ability has been added of saving the kml file and folder with icons into the kmz archive. When importing and exporting SHP the four-dimensional records containing fields X, Y, Z (height) and M (measurement) are processed. When processing data, the new component allows you to receive messages about the current state of the process to notify the operator: percentage of execution, presence of errors, the need to interrupt processing, information about the map.
    The GIS ToolKit consists of a set of visual components (supplied in source code) and API functions of the GIS core for direct access to spatial data. The toolkit is intended for the development of client-server and desktop 32-bit and 64-bit applications that require processing and visualization of spatial data. Spatial data can be located both at the workplace (direct access to data) and in a local network or the Internet (components of access to the GIS Server or data exchange by international protocols are used).

  • 11.06.2021 GIS "Operator" provides an assessment of the tactical properties of the terrain using a digital elevation model
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Operator" version 13.6.7 has been developed. In the new version of the program the import of data about a relief from files of ArcInfo Binary Grid format has been added. ArcInfo Binary Grid files can contain a digital elevation model, a slope model, and a relief shading. Data in binary Files ArcInfo Binary Grid is organised in the form of a regular grid. The digital elevation model contains elevation data as a cell value of regular grid. According to digital model of a relief the matrixes of heights MTW are formed. To store a relief shading, the value of the regular grid cell corresponds to the degree of illumination. The files containing a relief shading or model of slopes, are converted into matrixes of qualities MTQ. The task of importing matrixes of elevations also supports loading of the data from the SRTM, GeoTIFF, IMG, DEM formats. The import of the pyramid of matrixes of elevations of relief from the KMZ format into a set of MTW files, combined into a single MPT project, has been provided.
    To assess the tactical properties of the terrain, the GIS "Operator" is equipped with the Complex of engineering tasks panel. The complex is intended for creating models of surfaces and solving the problems of the spatial analysis with use of the constructed models. The surface model can display such terrain properties as elevation, pollution concentration, precipitation, radiation levels, and others. Surfaces can be represented by regular GRID models (matrix of relief heights, matrix of qualities of a given characteristic). Models of surfaces can be created according to a vector map data. Surface models are used to form a three-dimensional terrain map, and also when solving the analysis tasks (calculating distances, areas and volumes, profiling, determining the directions of slopes). Matrix models allow performing transformation operations on them with obtaining derived surfaces. Surface models can be used to construct isolines, form the coordinates H (height) of map objects, when calculating the volume of earthworks, when constructing flood zones and modeling emergency situations.

    In the "Map Editor", onto the "Graphic objects" panel, a mode has been added for quickly drawing "icons" on the map - graphic files of BMP, PNG, JPEG, ICO, TIF and others formats. The selected graphic files are copied into the map subdirectory with the name \map name.images. The relative path to the file is recorded into the semantics of the graphic object. When copying a map to another folder, you must also copy the subdirectory with graphic files. When scaling a map the raster symbol can decrease and increase. When packing a map in SITZ\MAPZ\MPTZ formats, graphic files are packed automatically.
    To create and update special maps, the GIS contains a digital classifier of conventional symbols of the operational situation operator.rsc and a library of programmable symbols rscarmy.iml64. The program supports the modes of drawing the following groups of conventional symbols: "Command posts", "Marching columns", "Borders", "Weapons", taking into account the requirements of the document "Classifier of electronic conventional symbols of the operational situation". The provided functions allow to reduce the number of conventional symbols in the classifier by several times. The conventional symbol of the object on the map is automatically formed from the basic symbol of the type of object, taking into account a specific combination of values of semantic characteristics. Such approach reduces time of a choice of the necessary symbol from the library and reduces the number of operator errors. Instead of choosing an icons, the operator enters into the semantics of the object the information he knows about state belonging, condition, mobility, security, properties of equipment, weapons, and so on. Programmable signs themselves determine the type of a suitable sign.A similar approach is used in the standard of the International Hydrographic Organization for displaying nautical maps S57/S52.

    In the program the display, editing and search by area of objects for vector maps of great volume (from hundreds thousand to tens millions objects in one set - a layer), located locally or on a GIS Server is accelerated. It is realised at the expense of optimisation of construction and updating of spatial indexes of the objects applied at display and search of the vector data.

    The task "Update semantics from files Microsoft Office Excel (*.xls, *.xlsx)" has been improved. There are added the modes: Automatic setting of field matching by semantics key, Save/Restoring settings, Delete a list of semantics. In the dialog of semantics selection a search by key, code or name has been added. Execution of function of updating the list of semantics by all objects or objects selected according to certain conditions is accelerated.

    The "Cut selected objects" item has been added into the "Edit" menu. This mode allows you to simultaneously copy to the clipboard and delete selected objects on the map. Cutting of selected objects is carried out by the Ctrl+X hotkey combination. "Quick deletion" of selected objects without copying to the clipboard - Ctrl+Delete.

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

  • 26.05.2021 In GIS ToolKit the possibilities of creating an interactive editor of spatial objects have been expanded
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS ToolKit version 13.4.1 has been developed for creating GIS applications in the environment of C++ Builder, Delphi Embarcadero. The GIS ToolKit includes the TMapEditMetric component, which is intended for editing the metric's points of map object in an interactive mode. The developer just needs to select the desired map object and activate the editing process. In the new version the a mode for working with a group of map objects has been added. After starting editing, the following editing modes are available for the developer: creating a new object; creating a subobject in an existing object; adding a point into the metric of an existing object; deleting a point from the metric of an existing object; obtaining the coordinates of a virtual point on the contour of an object; obtaining the coordinates of the real point of the object metric; changing the coordinates of the metric of an existing object; moving the entire object; moving a group of objects.
    The TMapScreen component is used to display the map and edited objects. It allows to accelerate and improve visual qualities (an exception of map blinking) of displaying edited, movable (mobile) and stationary user objects against the background of the map. Improving the display of user objects is carried out at the expense of optimizing the redrawing of the background map. In general, the image of a background map is drawn into the window from the internal buffer of map image, rather than by drawing the map from the data store. The more user objects are displayed at the same time, the higher the optimization factor in terms of speed and quality of display.
    The GIS ToolKit includes an example of a map editor based on the TMapEditMetric component (located in the \Example\delphi\mapedit\ or \Example\builder\mapedit\directory). In the new version, the possibilities for determining the relative position of map objects have been expanded. The OverlapTest function has been added into the TMapOverlay component to analyze the intersections of two areal objects with subobjects and multipolygons.
    The GIS ToolKit consists of a set of visual components (supplied in source code) and API functions of the GIS core for direct access to spatial data. The toolkit is intended for the development of client-server and desktop 32-bit and 64-bit applications that require processing and visualization of spatial data. Spatial data can be located both at the workplace (direct access to data) and in a local network or the Internet (components of access to the GIS Server or data exchange using international protocols are used).

In the new version of the program, the "Cartogram" mode has been added, which automates the preparation of infographics from public statistical information on regions and municipal districts of the Russian Federation. Creation of thematic maps is performed using tabular data from a file of CSV format. The cartogram is formed by combining information about the spatial objects of the map layer and the data values of the thematic indicator in the table. As a cartographical basis the published map of the regions of Russia is used. The table can consist of two or more columns one of which should contain names of subjects of the Russian Federation or municipal districts of the subject of the Russian Federation. The constructed thematic layer is automatically published on the GIS WebService SE service and opens in the map. It contains colored images of objects with the caption of the data indicator value. The ranges scale of the indicator values is displayed in the layer legend in the tree of the map composition. You can see an example of creating a cartogram on the website. It is necessary preliminarily to download an example of a CSV-file of data. The file contains statistical information on the increase in the incidence of COVID-19 by territories, the data is demonstrative.

  • 18.05.2021 GIS WebService SE provides cloud computing for complex information systems
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebService SE version 13.10.1 has been developed. The new version of the service performs calculations on a cloud server, providing remote access to spatial information for users. For complex information systems, an important indicator is the volume of information transmitted through the cloud over the network. In order to increase the throughput, a new protocol for interacting with the service in the JSON format has been developed. Using JSON will reduce the traffic for transferring requests and responses by an average of 4 times compared to XML-RPC. The use of the JSON standard will simplify the process of integrating the service with third-party systems and libraries. To reduce the size of the transmitted parameters, the ability to set common parameters for all layers has been added into the request structure.

    Security of the service work has been increased when exchanging data via sockets with the PHP module. All addresses are closed except 127.0.0.1. Now to the GIS Application Service module , the requests through sockets can be submitted only from the local machine. In order to reduce the size of the recorded event logs, their formation is divided by days. Tools of writing the user libraries by means of SDK have been expanded. Examples on creation of the dispatching centre with moving objects were added.

    Interface of the administrator has been improved. A new dialog for monitoring the process of loading data into RAM, forming a cache from the GIS Server, and forming a cache of a dbm layer from a database has been implemented. For loaded systems, the ability to preload data into RAM has been added to speed up the process of accessing data by users.

    There is implemented a request to control the metric of an object for self-intersection and junction of contours, search for close points and outliers, and determine the location of contours. For the operation of checking the intersections of two or more layers, an indication of the request execution has been added. For compatibility with old versions of GIS WebServer SE, support for the GetMapList request has been added.

    GIS WebService SE supports all international standards (OGC WFS, WFS-T, WMS, WMTS, WCS), which are used to transfer and display spatial data. The program implements the ability to issue tiles for any user or local coordinate system. The application is implemented on Windows and Linux platforms, is compatible with Apache, IIS and nginx web servers.

  • 14.05.2021 "Workstation of an agronomist" is integrated with the VEGA-PRO satellite data service
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of agronomist" version 13.6.6 has been developed. The new version adds support for working with Earth remote sensing data from the VEGA-PRO service, created by the Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences - IKI RAS in cooperation with LLC "IKIZ".
    VEGA-PRO is a professional information service that provides access via the WMS protocol to archived and up-to-date data, daily updated satellite images in natural colors and thematic products based on them for analyzing the Earth's surface and monitoring renewable biological resources. The service provides data obtained from satellites LandSat, Sentinel, MODIS, TERRA, KANOPUS, METEOR, RESOURCE and others. A full description of the service's capabilities is available in the documentation.

    As part of the "Workstation of agronomist", the service is available in the form of geoportals with layers of coverage based on satellite images in natural colors, a large number of different vegetation indexes and thematic products: smoke, fires, temperature of ocean surface. A layer of coverage with images in natural colors can be used in tasks of monitoring the Earth's surface, for example, for assessing forest and land resources. The images clearly show the change in the forest area caused by fires, deforestation or destruction of the timber stand, as well as the overgrowing of agricultural lands with forests due to their underutilization.
    Vegetation indexes are numerical indicators of the quantity and quality of biological resources, calculated on the basis of satellite images. Depending on the type, the indexes can be used in the tasks of assessing the health of vegetation, predicting yields, or determining the effectiveness of fertilization. Indexes NDVI, GNDVI, PVI, SWVI, SAVI, NDRE, MNDVI, AWEI, WRI, NDWI, NDMI are available for viewing.
    Thematic anomalies provide information on fire and smoke based on multispectral satellite imagery. "Workstation of an agronomist" provides data content management for all layers from the VEGA-PRO geoportal by using the tools of filtering the source images by date of shooting and total cloud cover.
    Access to the service is provided by username and password or by an API access key. The options for providing access are described in the documentation on the service website.

  • 11.05.2021 GIS "Operator" increases the realism of the simulation model of emergency situations
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Operator" version 13.6.6 has been developed. In the new version of the program, animation tools are expanded when creating three-dimensional models. New animated nodes have been added into the "Sign" type template: Smoke, Explosion, Mudflow, Fire hose. The use of animated nodes in the simulation model of emergencies adds an additional effect of realism to dynamic scenes. This is also promoted by the display in a three-dimensional model of military and special equipment, objects of the rear and fortifications, detailed details of the terrain, vegetation, weather conditions and atmospheric phenomena.
    For automated construction and analysis of mathematical models of emergency situations, the GIS "Operator" 13 includes the "Forecast of Emergencies" Complex. The complex constructs mathematical models of emergency situations according to the following scenarios: emergency at a chemically hazardous facility, emergency at a radiation hazardous facility, emergency at a biologically hazardous facility, emergency at an explosive facility, emergency at a hydraulic structure. The complex "Forecast of Emergencies" provides the calculation of the flooding zone by the method of alignments, predicts the occurrence of emergency situations on the oil pipeline, simulates the spread of large-scale forest fires.
    The new mode "Add Photos" has been developed for fixing the consequences of emergencies which allows to load into an open terrain map of a photo with a geographic location in EXIF tags. Typically, photographs taken with digital cameras and mobile phones equipped with a GPS receiver have such properties. Photos are displayed on the map as icons (thumbnails). When the map is increased, the photo is enlarged, allowing you to see the photo in more detail. Loading of photos is carried out into a service map which is saved in the document folder and is entered into the document maps list. When you reopen the document, the map with photos opens automatically.

    To automate the preparation of infographics from public statistical information by the regions of the Russian Federation and municipal districts, the "Show statistics" mode has been added. Statistical data should be presented in the form of a table in CSV format. The table can consist of two or more columns one of which should contain names of subjects of the Russian Federation or municipal districts of the subject of the Russian Federation. When you open the CSV file, a thematic map is built using the regions.sitz map included in the installation. The map regions.sitz contains objects of administrative division of the Russian Federation: territories of federal districts, subjects and areas. Into the installation of the program, several examples have been added which were loaded from the website of the Federal State Statistics Service (Rosstat). The result of the construction is a thematic map containing the colored territories of the subjects of the Russian Federation or regions of the selected subject, a scale of ranges of values of statistical data and a list of names of territorial objects with the values of the selected statistical data. The resulting map can be printed, or be saved into files of vector (SVG, EMF) and raster (PNG, TIFF) formats.

    In the "Creation of thematic map" task, the mode "Coloring by distance from selected objects" has been added. The mode performs coloring of areal objects in accordance with the distance from the selected objects. Polygons for coloring are set by the "Filter" button. For example, to build a map of the distance between forest areas relative to roads it is necessary: to select the road network objects (highways, streets, improved and unpaved roads) on the map, to select polygons for coloring (forest areas) in the dialog and perform construction. The task is started through the main menu Tools/Run applications/Thematic maps and diagrams.
    In the "Search by name" dialog, the algorithm of search by the list of strings in the "Partial match" mode has been refined. In each string, a search by partial match is performed for each substring, separated by a space, period, comma, semicolon, or tab. If the substring contains only digits, then the same substring is searched for without other digits at the edges (for substring "21" the substring "121" or "213" will not be found, but "21.0" is acceptable). This allows, for example, to find an address by the first letters of the street name and the exact house number.
    The new version of the program is available for download in the Download section.

  • 05.05.2021 GIS "Panorama" has been developed for domestic operating system Astra Linux Common Edition (Release "Oryol")
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" version 13.4.1 has been developed for the operating system "Astra Linux Common Edition" (Release "Oryol"). The geographic information system is built on a multi-platform multi-threaded kernel for OS Linux, QNX, Android, MS Windows with support of processors Intel/AMD, Elbrus, ARM, PowerPC, SPARC, MIPS and others. To improve the reliability of the software, numerous automated functional tests have been developed, the code has been optimized using text analyzers and performance evaluation on a multicore architecture. GIS "Panorama" provides users with tools for accumulation, storage, automated processing and display of data, calculation results and forecasts with geospatial reference. The system allows you to create vector, raster and matrix maps, as well as promptly update various information about the area.
    In the task «Maps manager» the possibility of grouping of heterogeneous spatial data has been added. Thanks to this, the user is able to effectively structure large amounts of information. Into one section of the manager the data from any directory of the file system can be placed. When adding data to a section, the task automatically forms a readable name - a short or full path, depending on the data location.
    The possibilities of forming a three-dimensional metric when creating new objects have been expanded. The task interface has been optimised for convenient processing of mass addition of height into map objects. Depending on the settings, the program displays a dialog box for requesting the height for the object being created or writes the last entered value into the object. Formation of a three-dimensional metric is available both for vector objects and for the created raster sign. Parameters for editing three-dimensional metrics can be customized for a specific user in the options of the "Map Editor" mode.
    GIS "Panorama" contains a professional digital map editor, which includes a large number of modes. For the convenience of users, the modes are combined into groups: creating objects (basic modes of creating, copying and duplicating), auto shapes (additional modes for creating objects with complex contours: embankments, flyovers, stairs, quarters, bergstrich), graphic objects (additional modes for creating objects in the form simple lines, polygons and labels), topology (modes of matching sections of neighboring objects and their individual points) and many others. You can learn more about the capabilities of the "Map Editor" in the "Documentation".
    GIS "Panorama" allows you to combine vector, raster and matrix data in different projections (with performing the transformation on the fly) and use them as a basis for making calculations: obtaining information about the length, area of map objects and arbitrary polygons, building an orthodrome and loxodrome, zones around selected objects, intersection of objects, determination of emptiness, finding the distance between map objects, searching for points on the contour, searching by point, azimuth and distance, performing calculations by matrix of heights (value of the height at a point, building a profile by matrix of heights or arbitrary line, visibility zones, area of the object taking into account the relief, flooding zone).
    Using the "Road net" task, users can search for the minimum route between two nodes, taking into account the values of the semantic characteristics of the network edges, find objects within a specified distance from the specified node (remoteness graph) and determine the minimum path between several specified nodes. To build the minimum path, it is necessary to indicate the start and end points of the route (network nodes), the method of construction (by length or by time), if necessary, set the construction criteria by the semantic characteristics of the network edges. As a result of the program's work, the edges that make up the minimum route will be selected on the map, the length of the path will be calculated.
    GIS "Panorama" supports import of data from the most popular formats: vector maps SXF, TXF, DIR, SHP (Shapefile), DXF (AutoCAD), OGC GML (XML), KML (Google), S57 and others; raster data (RSW, BMP, JPEG, PNG, GeoTIFF, TIFF); matrixes of heights and matrixes of qualities MTW, MTQ, GRD, SRTM, GeoTIFF; geological matrixes of layers, TIN models and laser scanning data (point cloud in MTD format); navigation data GPX; aeronautical data ARINC-424.
    The user can print open data to various output devices with customizable print parameters. Vector data can be exported into exchange formats SXF, TXF, DIR, SHP (Shapefile), OGC GML (XML) S57, ARINC-424 and others; raster data - in RSW, BMP, JPEG, PNG, TIFF formats.
    The software allows you to create new maps in MAP, SIT, SITX formats with automatic filling of parameters using the EPSG code or from the list of parameters in XML format. GIS "Panorama" can be used to create and edit digital topographic, sea, aeronautical and other maps and city plans.
    The program includes tools for creating three-dimensional models of varying degrees of detail. The GIS "Panorama" together with classifiers of vector maps includes libraries of three-dimensional images for various scales. To obtain a three-dimensional view of existing digital maps, it is enough to connect one or several libraries to the map classifier. This approach makes it possible to quickly prepare the map for display in three-dimensional form. If you need a more detailed and individual display of the area, you can create your own volumetric images of objects. There is supported an import into DB3D format of Collada (dae) models, OBJ models, TLS (Agisoft Tiled Model) models, point clouds in Agisoft OC3 format. Separate import of point clouds in LAS format. Models of the specified formats can be exported from Geoscan software, programs of SketchUp, Blender, MeshLab, Maya, 3D Studio Max, SP LIRA and others.
    The multiuser access to the remote data with control of access by means of connection to the GIS Server is supported. GIS Server provides remote access to vector maps, remote sensing data, matrices, documents, spatial databases and pyramids of tiles in the formats GPKG, BIR, Mbtiles. GIS Server supports work with spatial databases under control of PostgreSQL and Oracle DBMS that support the ability to access spatial data in accordance with the OGC 06-103r4 standard: "OpenGIS Implementation Standard for Geographic information - Simple feature access - Part 1: Common architecture".
    Connections to popular geoportals are supported, which allow displaying user maps over images received from the sites OpenStreetMap (Map), Yandex (Sputnik), Yandex (Map), Rosreestr, Kosmosnimki, Monitoring of aircraft movement and others. The list of geoportals is constantly expanding and can be supplemented by system users. In addition, GIS "Panorama" can be used to connect to arbitrary servers using the OGC WMS and OGC WFS protocols (for example, based on GIS WebService SE).
    GIS "Panorama" allows you to create diagrams on the map by the values of semantic characteristics. When creating cartograms, there is a possibility of proportional and non-proportional distribution of ranges of values of attribute characteristics. The complex for preparing maps for publication, which is part of the program, is designed to improve the visibility of the printed map, taking into account the requirements for the design of maps. The complex includes tasks for special sorting of maps, out-of-frame design of a multi-sheet map, breadboard models of out-of-frame design and other modes.

Changes have been made in the algorithm for filling the XML file of the land survey plan in the part of the elements the Package - Information Package, GeneralCadastralWorks - General information about cadastral works, InputData - Input data, Survey - Information about performed measurements and calculations.
    When filling in an XML document, attributes of different types are used: number, text, date and value from the directories. For the XML-document of the land survey plan version 8, the attributes directories have been substantially updated. In connection with the updating of the composition and content of XSD-directories of the values of attributes of objects of cadastral registration, the digital classifier survey (survey.v6.rscz) has been updated. This classifier is intended for maintaining a cadastral map containing the objects required for creating an XML document of the land survey plan according to the MP_v08_R04 schema.
    Formation of a land survey plan according to the MP_v06 scheme is not supported in program versions 13.6.6 and higher. To form a land survey plan according to the MP_v06 scheme, it is necessary to install the Complex of geodesy calculations of version 13.6.5 on top of the workstation of cadastral engineer 13.6.6 with the choice of the path to the folder \Program Files\Panorama\PanoramaSurvey13.
    Dialog "Editing the attributes of the object of cadastral works" has been updated. Elements for entering and editing an extended set of attributes of land plots have been added, including information about the location of the land plot within the boundaries of the territory in respect of which the land survey project has been approved, the scheme of the location of the land plot on the cadastral plan of the territory, information about the location of the land plot within the boundaries of the zone or territory, and information on the permitted use of forests. The auxiliary dialog for entering and editing repeated semantics has been improved, taking into account changes in their composition. The composition of information about the characteristics of the forest area has been expanded.
    The algorithm for processing information about the types of permitted use of a land plot has been changed, there were implemented a variable recording of the elements: Utilization - Type of permitted use of the land plot in accordance with the previously used classifier (dUtilizations) and information on the permitted use in accordance with the document, LandUse - Type of permitted use of the land plot in accordance with the classifier approved by the order of the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia dated 01.09.2014 № 540 and PermittedUsesGradReg - Type (types) of permitted use from among the types provided by town planning regulations. The procedure for recording information about the address (description of the location) of the land plot has been updated, there was added a recording of the FIAS element - a unique number of the address-forming element in the state address register.
    The mode "Reading the cadastral plan of the territory and updating the map" has been improved, the reading of data according to the extract_about_boundaries_v01 XML schema, used to form an XML document - an extract about the border between the subjects of the Russian Federation, the border of the municipality and the border of the settlement in electronic form, has been updated. Based on the results of reading the XML file, several linear objects are created on the map, corresponding to the type of boundaries and containing the attributes of the objects of cadastral registration. The stream processing of several files is supported.
    The dialog "Technical plan" has been improved. For the technical building plan, a recording into the XML file of element the SchemeDisposition - Scheme of the location of the building on the land plot has been corrected. For the technical plan of the premises, the recording into the XML file of the element "View of the living space" has been corrected. The order of inserting the images of floor plan into the text report has been corrected; when reading information from an XML file, the formation of the full path of the image file has been added. Continuous numbering of the characteristic points of the contour boundaries for the multi-contour part of the construction has been added. For the elements GeopointsOpred and TochnGeopointsSubObject, the processing of the metrics of multipolygons that characterize the outer contours of real estate objects has been added.

  • 28.04.2021 GIS "Panorama" automates the preparation of infographics from statistical information on regions of the Russian Federation and municipal districts
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" version 13.6.6 has been developed. To automate the preparation of infographics from public statistical information by the regions of the Russian Federation and municipal districts, the Show statistics mode has been added. Statistical data should be presented in the form of a table in CSV format. The table can consist of two or more columns one of which should contain names of subjects of the Russian Federation or municipal districts of the subject of the Russian Federation. When you open the CSV file, a thematic map is built using the regions.sitz map included in the installation. The map regions.sitz contains objects of administrative division of the Russian Federation: territories of federal districts, subjects and areas. The link of table fields with objects of a map is carried out by semantics "Name". To obtain a better result, the table should contain the correct names of subjects or districts. Into the installation of the program, several examples have been added which were loaded from the website of the Federal State Statistics Service (Rosstat). The result of the construction is a thematic map containing the colored territories of the subjects of the Russian Federation or regions of the selected subject, a scale of ranges of values of statistical data and a list of names of territorial objects with the values of the selected statistical data. The resulting map can be printed, or be saved into files of vector (SVG, EMF) and raster (PNG, TIFF) formats.
    In the Creation of thematic map task, the mode "Coloring by distance from selected objects" has been added. The mode performs coloring of areal objects in accordance with the distance from the selected objects. Polygons for coloring are set by the "Filter" button. For example, to build a map of the distance between forest areas relative to roads it is necessary: to select the road network objects (highways, streets, improved and unpaved roads) on the map, to select polygons for coloring (forest areas) in the dialog and perform construction. The task is started through the main menu Tools/Run applications/Thematic maps and diagrams.
    New mode File/Add/Photos allows to load photos containing the coordinates of the geographic location into the open map of the region. Typically, photographs taken with digital cameras and mobile phones equipped with a GPS receiver have such properties. Photos are displayed on the map as icons (thumbnails). When the map is increased, the photo is enlarged, allowing you to see the photo in more detail. Loading of photos is carried out into a service map which is saved in the document folder and is entered into the document maps list. When you reopen the document, the map with photos opens automatically.
    In the Search by name dialog, the algorithm of search by the list of strings in the "Partial match" mode has been refined. In each string, a search by partial match is performed for each substring, separated by a space, period, comma, semicolon, or tab. If the substring contains only digits, then the same substring is searched for without other digits at the edges (for substring "21" the substring "121" or "213" will not be found, but "21.0" is acceptable). This allows, for example, to find an address by the first letters of the street name and the exact house number.
    The "Land survey plan" mode has been improved. In connection with the updating of the composition and content of XSD-reference books of the values of attributes of objects of cadastral registration, the digital classifier (survey.v6.rsc) was updated, a new XML-schema was prepared (version 8), the formation of an XML-document according to the new schema was implemented. Formation of a land survey plan according to the MP_v06 scheme is not supported in program versions 13.6.6 and higher. To form a land survey plan according to the MP_v06 scheme, it is necessary to install the Complex of geodetic calculations version 13.6.5 on top of the GIS Panorama 13.6.6.
    The dialog "Editing the attributes of the object of cadastral works" has been updated. Elements have been added for entering and editing information about the land survey project, information about the zone or territory and the permitted use of forests. The auxiliary dialog for entering and editing repeated semantics has been improved. Checks for attempts to work with semantics not described in the map classifier have been added.
    Modes the "Technical building plan" and the "Technical plan" (premises) have been improved. There were added the end-to-end numbering of the characteristic points of the contour boundaries for the multi-contour part of the construction, the processing of the metrics of multipolygons that characterize the outer contours of real estate objects.
    In group of applications "Check and correction of data", the task Adjustment of isolines and linear hydrography objects has been improved. In the area of contour adjustment with linear hydrographic objects, a check has been added for intersections with other contour lines, which may occur when deformation of contour fragments of horizontal lines with the selected adjustment parameters and the density of contour lines on the map. If such intersections are found, the deformation of the horizontal line is canceled and a corresponding message is recorded in the log of control results.
    Task Control of absolute height has been improved. Possibility of using the control schemes has been added. The types of control specified in the dialog, their parameters, and also the composition of processed objects are saved in an XML file in the general folder of program's tasks parameters. The task performs control of isobaths, contours and elevations. Control of contours checks the heights of thick, main and additional contours, as well as other objects with the "absolute height" semantics. Control of isobaths checks the values of depths and marks of depths. Control of elevations marks checks the presence of marks inside the closed contours, and also planned position of the found marks concerning the closed contours. The user can create separate control schemes for detecting the gross errors in absolute heights, as well as for additional check of the terrain, taking into account the characteristics of the area.
    The dialog for editing the semantics of list of objects has been improved - for convenience and speeding up the process of displaying and changing semantics, the ability has been added to display into the table not all permissible characteristics that satisfy the search conditions, but only those semantics that really belong to the object.
    The new version of the program is available for download in the Download section.

  • 27.04.2021 Complex for preparing documents of aeronautical information automates the process of preparing maps for publication
    In KB "Panorama" the Complex of preparing documents of aeronautical information version 7.7 for the GIS "Panorama" has been developed. The new version makes it possible to form a legend of aeronautical maps with tables of restrictions on route sections, areas of air traffic service and prohibited areas.

  • 23.04.2021 In professional vectorizer "Panorama-editor" the possibilities of creating and updating topographic maps on materials of open data geoportals have been expanded
    In KB "Panorama" the professional vectorizer "Panorama-editor" version 13.6.5 has been developed. In the new version, for the task of connecting geoportals, support has been added for layers from the Rosreestr geoportal: Cadastral okrug, Cadastral districts, Cadastral quarters, Land plots, Land plots put up for auction, Red lines, Unified real estate complexes. Geoportal provides data in vector tile form. The obtained data contains the coordinates of objects, signatures of plots, semantic characteristics. The parameters of connection to geoportals, stored in the wmslist_ru.xml file, have been updated.
    To access the geoportals in the "Panorama-editor", a mechanism for loading spatial data from WFS services is used. Web Feature Service (WFS) is a geographic information transfer protocol used to exchange spatial vector data on the Internet. Instead of an exchanging the geographical information at level of files, use of WFS protocol offers direct access to the geographical information, namely to objects of a vector map, their attributive information and the metadata. This web service allows clients to retrieve only the data they are looking for, rather than retrieving the entire file, significantly speeding up the exchange of data and the work with the resulting file.
    The task "Import of MTD-model from LAS-file" has been improved. The task carries out formation of MTD models from LAS files obtained using LIDAR laser locators. Data of LAS-files can contain results of sounding the earth or sea surface, atmosphere. The MTD model contains point measurements sorted block-by-block, which provides quick access to data for solving computational and analytical problems. The new method of block filling the MTD model reduces the loading time of LAS files larger than 8 GB by 3-5 times. Loading of control LAS file with number of points of 555 million in volume of 14.4 Gbytes is executed for 16 minutes.
    When searching and selecting objects on a map, the ability to group mathematical formulas for a combination of mathematical expressions and logical conditions has been added. For example, in the presence of semantics with the amount of saltpeter in tons applied to a given area, and semantics with the class of soil fertility, it is necessary to select areas where the amount of nitrogen per hectare is optimal. Let semantics 123 contain the amount of saltpeter applied to the area in tons, and semantics 345 contain the soil fertility class (from 1 to 6). Since the area of the plot (S) is calculated in square meters, and ammonium nitrate contains 34.5% of nitrogen, the formula for calculating the specific dose of nitrogen will look like: "#123*1000*0.345/ (S/10000)" or simplified "#123*3450000/S". For the first class of fertility, we set the first group of formulas: "#345" with boundary values 1 and 1 and "#123*3450000/S" with boundary values 40 and 50, for the second class the boundary values of the first formula are 2 and 2, the second 45 and 55 and so on. Within the group, select the logical "AND" condition - both formulas must meet the boundary conditions. We select the logical "OR" condition between the groups - although in one group the conditions must be fulfilled during the calculation. When you press the button, all areas where the nitrogen dose is optimal will be highlighted. The typed conditions can be saved in templates of search conditions under the specified names and applied as necessary.
    In the "Geodesy editor" task, the modes of generating reports for preparing graphical applications for the forest declaration approved by order of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation dated July, 30th, 2020 N 539 were updated. Report templates for the forest declaration were updated, processing of new markers was added and the digital classifier of map forestry.v2 was improved, used to prepare maps of graphics application for forest declaration.
    The modes "Reading the cadastral plan of the territory and updating the map" and "Create objects from XML file of the cadastre", which are part of the task "Cadastral documents", have been improved. The algorithm for reading data about the elements of the structures contour has been improved. If the contour of capital construction object (CCO) is represented by a set of elements of different types (point, line, arc, circle), then a set of objects of different localization (linear and point) is created on the map. For elements with the "circle" type, point objects are created that contain the radius value in the semantics. For elements "point", "line", "arch" the linear objects are created. As a result of loading, one CCO can be represented on the map by several objects of different localization with the same value of the "Cadastre number" semantics.

  • 14.04.2021 In GIS ToolKit the possibilities of applying mathematical formulas have been improved when searching and editing objects
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS ToolKit version 13.3.1 has been developed for creation of GIS-applications in the environment of C ++ Builder, Delphi Embarcadero. In the new version there is expanded the use of mathematical expressions (formulas), including various mathematical operations on the values of the object semantics and its measuring properties when searching and editing objects. A bookmark for entering a list of mathematical formulas and a range of values that the calculation result must correspond to has been added into the "Object Search" dialog. In the "Object Search" dialog (TMapFind component), a bookmark has been added for entering a list of mathematical formulas and a range of values to which the calculation result must correspond. When searching for objects, you can set the criteria for selecting objects based on the correspondence of calculations to the specified ranges of values for one of the formulas or all at once.

    For example, it is necessary to find regions with a low class of population density per square kilometer. Map objects (regions) can have the semantics "Population density class" (code - 101, is filled not in all objects) and "Population size" (code - 102, is filled in all objects, measured in thousands) living in a given region. "Population density class" can take values from 1 to 3 (low, medium, high). The low class corresponds to values in the range from 0 to 10. To calculate the population density, it is necessary to divide the population by the area of the territory, taking into account the fact that the area of the region (S) is transmitted in square meters, the population in thousands, the calculation formula will be as follows: "#102 *1000/(S/1000000)" or simplified "#102 *0.001/S".
    For the formulas, add the selection criteria that should set the search for objects either with a low density class, or with a calculated low population density, for which we will form a list of formulas: "#101" with boundary values from 1 to 1 for the population density class; "#102 *0.001/S" with boundary values from 0 to 10. To search by two formulas, select the logical condition "OR" - at least one of formulas should correspond to boundary conditions. Pressing the Select button will highlight all regions with a low population density class. The typed conditions can be saved in templates of search conditions under the specified names and reapplied.

    The dialog for connecting geoportals has been improved (component TMapWMSPopupDialog) - there is added a support for layers from the Rosreestr geoportal: Cadastral districts, Cadastral areas, Cadastral quarters, Land plots, Land plots put up for auction, Red lines, Unified real estate complexes. Geoportal provides data in vector tile form in pbf (Protocolbuffer Binary Format) format. The data contains the coordinates of objects, signatures of sites, semantic characteristics. The parameters of connection to geoportals, stored in the wmslist_ru.xml file, have been updated.

    The dialog "Open data from GIS Server" (TMapGisServer component) has been improved. For users who have the right to view the state of the GIS Server operation in the "Monitoring" tab, the ability to save the log (protocol) of the server operation into a text file for further analysis or sending to the technical support service has been added.

    The GIS ToolKit consists of a set of visual components (supplied in source code) and API functions of the GIS core for direct access to spatial data. The toolkit is intended for the development of client-server and desktop 32-bit and 64-bit applications that require processing and visualization of spatial data. Spatial data can be located both at the workplace (direct access to data) and in a local network or the Internet (components of access to the GIS Server or data exchange using international protocols are used).

For this purpose in "Classifier Editor" the new property of objects "Polygon with a point" was added. New possibilities are used in the classifier terrplan.v5.rsc at formation of conventional signs of areal objects displaying a contour of a building or a construction. When you map a polygon with a point, for example, a contour of a railway station, in its center a point subobject is automatically created, the coordinates of which are used to display the point sign of the station. To correct the position of a point sign in the "Map Editor" there are tools for changing the location of the polygon center point.

    The mode "Search by cadastral number or address" has been improved, the possibility has been added for a choice of a source of search: on a map or in Rosreestr. When using the search in the Rosreestr, the information found at the specified cadastral number or address is displayed in the "Information from State Real Estate Cadastre" dialog, with moving the map to the location of the found object.

    The task of connecting geoportal has been improved. Support has been added for the updated "Public Cadastral Map" (PCM) service in the form of layers of the Rosreestr geoportal for cadastral districts, cadastral areas and cadastral quarters. The updated geoportal of Rosreestr provides information about the cadastral division in the form of vector tiles of the pbf (Protocolbuffer Binary Format) format, which contain the coordinates and attributes of objects. The program processes the incoming vector tiles on the fly and displays them in the form of a vector map in the conventional symbols of the survey.v5.rscz classifier.

    The list of available layers has been changed, the data has been sorted into three categories: "Public information of Rosreestr", "Additional information" and "Cartographic basis of PCM". The section "Publicly available Rosreestr information", in addition to the cadastral division, includes the layers "Land plots", "Buildings, constructions and objects", "Boundaries", "Zones with special conditions for use of territory", "Territorial zones" and "Zones and territories". The "Additional Information" section includes the layers "Layouts of land plots", "Land plots put up for auction", "Land plots free from the rights of third parties", "Red lines" and "Unified real estate complexes". Wmslist_ru.xml has been updated that contains an up-to-date list of available geoportals and layers provided by them.

    The mode "Reading the cadastral plan of the territory and updating the map" has been updated. There is implemented a reading the data according to the extract_about_boundaries_v01 XML schema, issued from the Rosreestr in the form of information interaction in the form of an XML document - an extract about the border between the subjects of the Russian Federation, the border of the municipality and the border of the settlement in electronic form. Based on the results of streaming processing of several XML files, linear objects are created on the map that correspond to the type of boundaries and contain the attributes of cadastral accounting objects.

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

  • 12.04.2021 Maps of the Vladimir and Tver regions on the geoportal "Bank of spatial data" have been updated

  • 08.04.2021 "Workstation of cadastral engineer" provides updating of a map with data about boundaries of objects of territorial division from Rosreestr
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of cadastral engineer" version 13.6.5 has been developed. In the new version the mode "Reading the cadastral plan of the territory and updating the map" has been improved. There is implemented a reading the data according to the extract_about_boundaries_v01 XML schema, which is used to generate an XML document - an extract about the boundary between the subjects of the Russian Federation, the boundary of the municipality and the boundary of the settlement in electronic form. Based on the results of streaming reading the XML files, linear objects are created on the map that correspond to the type of boundaries and contain the attributes of objects of the cadastral account. A new algorithm for reading data about elements of the contour of constructions, represented by a set of elements of different types, including a "circle", has been implemented. Based on the results of reading elements of the "circle" type, point objects with the value of the radius in semantics are created on the map; linear objects are created for the elements "point", "line", "arc". The created map objects are combined into a set of objects describing the complex geometry of the construction contour.

    The task of connecting geoporta has been improved. Support has been added for the updated "Public Cadastral Map" service in the form of layers of the Rosreestr geoportal for cadastral districts, cadastral areas and cadastral quarters. The updated geoportal of Rosreestr provides information about the cadastral division in the form of vector tiles of the pbf (Protocolbuffer Binary Format) format, which contain the coordinates and attributes of objects. The program processes the incoming vector tiles on the fly and displays them in the form of a vector map in the conventional symbols of the survey.v5.rscz classifier. At joint display of maps and geoportals, a transformation of vector data to a projection and coordinate system of a geoportal is carried out. In the new version of the program, the transformation of vector maps into a given coordinate system has been accelerated by 4-6 times. The transformation process is called on the fly when the data of maps and geoportals in different coordinate systems are added into one window. When transforming on the fly, a copy of the source map is created in the map subdirectory with a name containing the name of the passport file and the current date.

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

  • 06.04.2021 GIS "Panorama" processes video and navigation data from video recorders, UAVs and mobile phones
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" version 13.6.5 has been developed. In the new version the tools have been added for processing of video and navigation data received from a car digital video recorder (DVR), a video camera of an unmanned aerial vehicle or a mobile phone. The task line "Share your photos with the coordinates of the shooting" is supplemented with a new dialogue - "Movement along the video track". This dialog allows you to download and view a video synchronized with a GPS track. When viewing a video, a marker is displayed on the map indicating the position of the camera corresponding to the current frame of the video file. When the mouse pointer approaches a track on the map, an additional window opens with a frame corresponding to the selected track point. Dialog supports video files containing track coordinates in video file subtitles, or in a separate file in GPX, NMEA-0183, KML formats. When loading a video file containing coordinates, a track is automatically added into the map as a linear object with a four-dimensional metric. Each point contains coordinates, date and time when GPS coordinates were recorded. To link an object with a video file, a link to the video file is written into the object. Loading tracks in GPX or NMEA-0183 format is performed using the "Loading tracks from directory" mode. To record a video track on a mobile phone, you can use the VideoGPS application located in the Download section.

    The task of connecting geoportals has been improved. Support for layers from the Rosreestr geoportal has been added: Cadastral okrug, Cadastral districts, Cadastral quarters, Land plots, Land plots put up for auction, Red lines, Unified real estate complexes. Geoportal provides data in vector tile form in pbf (Protocolbuffer Binary Format) format. The data contains the coordinates of objects, signatures of plots, semantic characteristics. The parameters of connection to geoportals, stored in the wmslist_ru.xml file, have been updated.

    The task "Loading of MTD-model from LAS-file" has been improved. The task loads MTD models from LAS files obtained using LIDAR laser locators. Data of LAS-files can contain results of sounding the earth or sea surface, atmosphere. The MTD model contains point measurements sorted block-by-block, which provides quick access to data for solving computational and analytical problems. The new method of block filling the MTD model reduces the loading time of LAS files larger than 8 GB by 3-5 times. Loading of control LAS file with number of points of 555 million in volume of 14.4 Gbytes is executed for 16 minutes.

    When searching and selecting objects on the map, the ability to group mathematical formulas for a combination of mathematical expressions and logical conditions has been added. For example, in the presence of semantics with the amount of saltpeter in tons applied to a given area, and semantics with the class of soil fertility, it is necessary to select areas where the amount of nitrogen per hectare is optimal. Let semantics 123 contain the amount of saltpeter applied to the area in tons, and semantics 345 contain the soil fertility class (from 1 to 6). Since the area of the plot (S) is calculated in square meters, and ammonium nitrate contains 34.5% of nitrogen, the formula for calculating the specific dose of nitrogen will look like: "#123*1000*0.345/ (S/10000)" or simplified "#123*3450000/S". For the first class of fertility, we set the first group of formulas: "#345" with boundary values 1 and 1 and "#123*3450000/S" with boundary values 40 and 50, for the second class the boundary values of the first formula are 2 and 2, the second 45 and 55 and so on. Within the group, select the logical "AND" condition - both formulas must meet the boundary conditions. We select the logical "OR" condition between the groups - although in one group the conditions must be fulfilled during the calculation. When you press the button, all areas where the nitrogen dose is optimal will be highlighted. The typed conditions can be saved in templates of search conditions under the specified names and applied as necessary.

    In the "Geodesy editor" task, the modes of generating reports for preparing graphical applications for the forest declaration approved by order of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation dated July 30, 2020 N 539 were updated. Report templates for the forest declaration were updated, processing of new markers was added and the digital classifier of map forestry.v2 was improved, used to prepare maps of graphics application for forest declaration.

    The modes "Reading the cadastral plan of the territory and updating the map" and "Create objects from XML file of the cadastre", which are part of the task "Cadastral documents", have been improved. The algorithm for reading data about the elements of the structures contour has been improved. If the contour of capital construction object (CCO) is represented by a set of elements of different types (point, line, arc, circle), then a set of objects of different localization (linear and point) is created on the map. For elements with the "circle" type, point objects are created that contain the radius value in the semantics. For elements "point", "line", "arch" the linear objects are created. As a result of loading, one CCO can be represented on the map by several objects of different localization with the same value of the "Cadastre number" semantics.

  • 01.04.2021 "Complex of 3D analysis" automates processes of creating objects of a relief for topographic maps
    In KB "Panorama" the "Complex of 3D analysis" version 6.0.4 for the GIS "Panorama" has been developed. In the new version of the program the mode "Creating contours for cliffs and rocks" has been implemented. It allows you to create polygonal objects for terrain areas where the slopes of the relief exceed the values specified by the operator.
    The contouring of and rocks is performed in an automatic mode. At the first stage by a matrix of heights of a relief the matrix of qualities is constructed containing two classes of values. The first class contains cells related to cliffs or rocks, and the second contains cells with normal terrain, displayed on the map by contours. Further the matrix of qualities is used for an automatic vectoring the borders of areas which are belonging to the class of cliffs and rocks. Mode "Creating contours for cliffs and rocks" provides accurate definition of the boundaries of polygonal objects, including those that cannot be determined using visual interpretation. Additional parametres of constructing allow to save a matrix of qualities and to filter out cliffs and rocks of the small area. The complex application of the modes "Formation of H coordinate of hydrographic objects", "Creation of horozontals by matrix of elevations", "Contouring of cliffs and rocks" and "Adjustment of isolines and linear hydrography objects" provides a high level of automation of the processes of creating information about the relief for topographic maps.

    The software package is designed to solve a wide range of tasks for the creation and analysis of matrix data models, including the construction and processing of information about the terrain. The main source of data for modeling the terrain is the Earth's remote sensing materials. The complex technology of joint application of digital photogrammetric system PHOTOMOD and the GIS "Panorama" provides creation of the information about the terrain in the required volume and specified accuracy. As a result of photogrammetric processing of space and aerial photographs, clouds of three-dimensional points, triangulation models, elevation matrixes and orthophotomaps are obtained. To clarify the relief forms, vectorization of structural lines is performed in stereo mode.

    Map editor in the GIS "Panorama" is intended for digitizing terrain objects from the orthophotomap image, and the 3D Analysis Complex provides a comprehensive development of various terrain models, including for three-dimensional visualization. The editor of a map in a GIS "Panorama" is intended for numbering of objects of district under the orthophotomap image, and the Complex 3D the analysis provides complex working off of various models of a relief, including for three-dimensional visualisation. At the same time, routine operations for digitizing contours and microforms of relief are performed automatically in streaming mode.

  • 31.03.2021 In GIS Panorama Mini the formats of used data for solving problems of territorial planning and management have been expanded
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS Panorama Mini version 13.6.4 has been developed. In the new version, loading of the pyramid of raster tiles from KMZ files has been added. KMZ archive can contain a KML file and a set of raster files. The KML file contains a description of parameters of the raster data - the names and coordinates of a binding of rasters, and also the priority of their drawing. As a result of importing a pyramid of raster tiles from KMZ, a set of RSW files is formed combined into an MPT project. The MPT project contains a list of RSW files and their visibility borders according to the "Draw Order" parameter. Loading a pyramid of raster tiles from KMZ files is implemented in the task of importing graphic files (GeoTIFF, PNG, JPEG and others).

    In the task of of importing matrixes from SRTM, GeoTIFF formats, loading of the pyramid of matrixes of heights of a relief from KMZ format has been added. The KMZ archive contains a KML file and a set of single-channel GeoTIFF files with data on elevation heights, from which a set of MTW files is formed combined into an MPT project with specified matrix visibility borders in accordance with the "Draw Order" parameter.

    Possibility has been implemented for displaying a packed project of spatial data MPTZ from the GIS Server of version 9.4 and higher. A packaged project may include a complex representation of the territory in the form of vector maps of different levels of detail, images of the terrain in RSW format, matrixes of heights and matrixes of quality characteristics of the terrain, insets from the same data, the reference to data from the GIS Server and from geoportals by various protocols. All data sets are packed into one file of MPTZ format. The total amount of packed data is reduced by 3-10 times. The speed of data exchange, packed into an MPTZ project, increases 5-20 times, taking into account the decrease in the number of transferred files. The size of the MPTZ file and the number of sets in the project are not limited. Maps are packed together with classifiers, a tree of distribution of objects over the map area, multiscale objects (generalized contours for different display scales) and hash tables indexed for search of objects semantics, pyramids of tiles, rasters and matrixes, which provides high speed of display and data search. The virtual folder on the GIS Server can be supplemented/updated by MPTZ projects in a background mode, changing the area and detail of the background cartographic coverage and the composition of remote sensing data without additional data administration. Packaged MPTZ projects can be formed by region (as, for example, on Digital maps page) or according to nomenclature sheets (for example, at a scale of 1: 500 000), which allows you to quickly form a complex coverage of a given territory.

    The list of supported DBMS for work with spatial databases has been expanded: PostgreSQL with the PostGIS extension, Oracle with the Oracle Spatial or ArcSDE extension, Microsoft SQL Server. Parameters of connection to a database are customized in the administration dialog and saved in a file with the DBM extension, which has an XML structure. The settings provide for the choice of the method of connecting to the database, the creation of lists of displayed and edited objects and their semantic characteristics (attributes). GIS provides direct displaying and editing of arbitrary spatial databases in cartographic conventional symbols, including those created by other GIS, without additional third-party modules based on direct interaction with PostgreSQL, Oracle and MS SQL Server DBMS through SQL queries.

    The search speed of objects with given semantic characteristics is increased by an average of 1000 times due to the indexing of semantics values using polynomial hashing methods, constructing values reference books and other improvements of search algorithms. On a test case of 4 000 000 objects, a search was performed using three indexed semantics: "Name", "Number of inhabitants", "Unique object identifier", which were filled in for more than 3 350 000 objects. The speed of performing sample of objects has decreased from 4 seconds to 4-5 milliseconds. The additional amount of RAM for placing the hash tables was 95 MB, the size of the source map was 802 MB. To activate the construction of hash tables, it is necessary to enable the "Index" option in the Classifier Editor for the semantics used when searching for objects. To reduce the time for building hash tables, they are saved into a file with the ".seh" extension and read when the map opening. When saving a map into the packed SITZ\MAPZ\MPTZ format, hash tables are packed in a common archive with the map. The new algorithm makes it possible to execute more requests on search from application tasks in multithreaded mode and improve the performance of server applications.

    In the "Classifier Editor", the list of mathematical operations for describing the semantics-formula has been expanded. The value of such semantics is automatically calculated when updating the coordinates or semantics of the object and can participate in the formation of the conventional symbol of the object through a series of objects (a matrix of conventional symbols, depending on the combination of the semantics values) or based on programmable symbols.
    For displaying polygons with a point symbol, a new object property has been added - "Polygon with a point". For objects with this property, when creating and editing an object, or when sorting, a subobject with one point in the center of the polygon is automatically created. If a conventional symbol of polygon contains polygon parameters and parameters of a point or vector symbol, the corresponding symbol will be displayed in the center of the polygon. The user can change the position of the point in the "Map Editor".

  • 29.03.2021 Modern geoinformation technologies of KB "Panorama" have been presented at the military-scientific conference in "Patriot" park
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" took part in the work of the military-scientific conference "Creation of a unified geoinformation space for ensuring the defense and security of the Russian Federation." The conference, organized by the Military Topographic Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, was attended by representatives of military command and control bodies, heads and specialists of Russian industry companies, representatives of military scientific organizations and universities.
    The report "Application of "Panorama" technologies for constructing a single geoinformation space for defense of the Russian Federation" presents software products that ensure the construction of a distributed information system, in a complex using spatial data from various sources of information. The presentation shows the elements of realisation of the implemented information systems for managing the development of territories at the level of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation. Panorama software technologies are designed to solve a wide range of tasks based on client-server, cloud, mobile and Internet technologies. For more information, see the article.

    All software is cross-platform and operates in operating systems of AstraLinux SE, Alt Linux, Zarya, CentOS, Red Hat, Debian, Fedora, QNX, MS Windows. The programs are compatible with various security tools (authorization tools, data encryption, antivirus, firewalls and others), support Intel, AMD, SPARC, MIPS, ARM, Elbrus processors. The Panorama software suite implements a geoinformation platform for creating various information systems, spatial data banks and automated control systems.

    In the speeches of other conference participants, it was noted that in order to implement a single geoinformation space, it is necessary to switch to new principles of providing geospatial information based on network information resources, using geoservices and geoportals. To access the network information resources in a secure information transmission network according to uniform rules, it is necessary to create an automated control system that implements the principles of interoperability. Geoinformation tools of the developer the GIS Designer, GIS ToolKit and GIS WebToolKit allow integrator companies that create automated control systems and other information systems to quickly and efficiently integrate tools for displaying and analyzing spatial data into their solutions.
    The materials of the report on the use of "Panorama" technologies for the construction of a single geoinformation space for the defense of the Russian Federation are available for review in the "Presentation" section.

  • 26.03.2021 GIS "Panorama" has been developed for the domestic platform Elbrus
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" has been developed for the operating system "Astra Linux Special Edition", release "Leningrad" on the platform "Elbrus" with the microprocessor "Elbrus-8C".
    GIS "Panorama" provides users with tools for accumulation, storage, automated processing and display of data, calculation results and forecasts having a geospatial reference. The system allows you to create vector, raster and matrix maps, and also promptly update various information about the area. The program contains tools for creating and editing digital maps, performing various measurements and calculations, overlay operations, building 3D models, processing raster data, building a road graph, thematic mapping, tools for preparing graphic documents in digital and printed form, as well as tools for working with databases.

    The new version contains a professional digital map editor, which includes a large number of modes. For the convenience of users, the modes are combined into groups: creating objects (basic modes of creating, copying and duplicating), auto shapes (additional modes for creating objects with complex contours: embankments, flyovers, stairs, quarters, bergstrich), graphic objects (additional modes for creating objects in the form simple lines, polygons and labels), topology (modes of matching sections of neighboring objects and their individual points) and many others. You can learn more about the capabilities of the "Map Editor" in the "Documentation".

    In the new version, the transformation of vector maps into the specified coordinate system is accelerated by 4-6 times. When adding a map with transformation, a copy of the original map is created in the map subdirectory with a name containing the name of the passport file and the current date. Additionally, the opening and first display of maps has been accelerated due to the formation of a "*.sol" file with a tree of territorial distribution of objects onto each map sheet. When the map is opened, the objects tree is read and the first display is accelerated by 5-15 times (for a map with 2 million objects, the opening and first display is accelerated from 9-12 seconds to 1 second). In the absence of "*.sol" file an automatic constructing a tree and file saving is carried out.

    Classifiers of digital topographic maps of scales : 25 000, 1: 50 000, 1: 100 000, 1: 200 000, 1: 500 000, 1: 1 000 000 have been updated. There were specified the parameters of scaling of conventional symbols of linear and areal objects with filling signs and contours of various thicknesses for layers of hydrography, land relief, road network and road structures, vegetation, soils and lava covers, industrial and social objects, borders, fences, certain natural phenomena and territories. The updated classifiers provide support for multiscale topographic maps, along with automatic generalization of contours for different scales, setting the ranges of objects visibility.

    The user interface and functionality of the task of constructing a mathematical base have been expanded. In the new version, when processing a multisheet map, the user can select from the list and process only the required set of sheets. The projection parameters of sheets located in different zones are automatically converted to the projection parameters of the first sheet during the process of construction. The task implements a separate detailed setting the parameters of rectangular and cartographic grids. To speed up working the task on maps with a large number of sheets, it is possible to disable transaction logging.

    When importing a set of maps sheets of SXF and TXF format, specified by the list in the DIR file, the ability has been added for transfer of sheets by longitude on +/-360 degrees. It allows to duplicate the columns of sheets in the western and\or eastern hemisphere for expansion of dimensions of work region up to -360/+360 degrees. To duplicate sheets, copy the required file with a different name (for example, rename 01-12.sxf to 01-12_west.sxf) and change its nomenclature so that all sheets in the region have a unique designation (for example, rename 01-12 to 01-12_west ). Then, in a text editor, add a line with a new name sxf or txf into the DIR file and press the tab after the file name and enter the direction of transfer (for example, -360 or +360). The recalculation of coordinates and sheet passport will be performed automatically when importing the work region by the DIR file.

    The geographic information system is built on a multi-platform multi-threaded kernel for Linux, QNX, Android, MS Windows with support for Intel/AMD, Elbrus, ARM, PowerPC, SPARC, MIPS and others processors. To improve the reliability of the software, numerous automated functional tests have been developed, the code has been optimized using the text analyzers and a performance evaluation on a multicore architecture.

    Processors based on the Elbrus architecture, developed by MCST company, are the leading domestic solution for the military-industrial complex and the public sector. Microprocessors "Elbrus-8C" (1891VM10Ya) are high-performance general-purpose processors with improved architecture "Elbrus", which allows performing up to 25 operations per cycle in each core - 250 billion floating point operations per second. The presence of 4 channels of access to memory and 3 channels of interprocessor exchange allows building scalable computing systems that provide a high speed of information processing and transmission.

The speed of data exchange, packed into an MPTZ project, increases 5-20 times, taking into account the decrease in the number of transferred files. Packaged MPTZ projects can be formed by region (as, for example, on Digital maps page) or according to nomenclature sheets (for example, at a scale of 1: 500 000), which allows you to quickly form a complex coverage of a given territory.

    In the task of importing graphic files (GeoTIFF, PNG, JPEG and others), a loading the pyramid of raster tiles from the KMZ format has been added. A KMZ archive can contain a KML file and a set of raster files. The KML file contains a description of parameters of the raster data - the names and coordinates of a binding of rasters, and also the priority of their rendering. As a result of importing a pyramid of raster tiles from KMZ, a set of RSW files is formed combined into an MPT project. The MPT project contains a list of RSW files and their visibility borders according to the "Draw Order" parameter.
    In the task of importing matrixes from SRTM, GeoTIFF formats, loading of the pyramid of matrixes of heights of a relief from the KMZ format has been added. The KMZ archive contains a KML file and a set of single-channel GeoTIFF files with data on elevation heights, from which a set of MTW files is formed combined into an MPT project with specified matrix visibility borders in accordance with the "Draw Order" parameter.
    When importing GeoTIFF files, analysis of GeogCitationGeoKey and PCSCitationGeoKey tags has been added to support GSK-2011 and PZ-90.11 coordinate systems. Tag GeogCitationGeoKey can contain records of the type: "PZ-90.11 Zone 6" or "GSK-2011 Zone 7". The contents of the GeogCitationGeoKey and PCSCitationGeoKey tags supplement the numeric coordinate system parameters specified by other tags.

    The mode "Calculations on semantics of selected objects" in the "Map Editor" task has been improved. The time for calculating and filling the semantics of objects according to a mathematical formula specified by the user has been reduced by 7 times. More complex mathematical expressions are supported, including various mathematical operations on the values of the semantics of an object and its measuring properties.

    There is expanded the use of mathematical expressions (formulas), including various mathematical operations on the values of the object semantics and its measuring properties when searching, editing objects, forming the view of conventional symbols of map objects and in other tasks. A bookmark for entering a list of mathematical formulas and a range of values that the calculation result must correspond to has been added into the "Object Search" dialog. When searching for objects, you can set the selection of objects according to the correspondence of calculations to the specified ranges of values for one of the formulas or all at once.
    There are supported the math operations ABS, ARM, SIN, COS, TG, CTG, MIN, MAX, POW2, POW3, SQRT2, SQRT3, LOG, LOG10 and others. Area, perimeter, coordinates of the first point, coordinates of the center of the contour, unique number and other properties of the object can be used in calculations.

    The search speed of objects with given semantic characteristics is increased by an average of 1000 times due to the indexing of semantics values using polynomial hashing methods, constructing values reference books and other improvements of search algorithms. On a test case of 4 000 000 objects, a search was performed using three indexed semantics: "Name", "Number of inhabitants", "Unique object identifier", which were filled in for more than 3 350 000 objects. The speed of performing sample of objects has decreased from 4 seconds to 4-5 milliseconds. The additional amount of RAM for placing the hash tables was 95 MB, the size of the source map was 802 MB. To activate the construction of hash tables, it is necessary to enable the "Index" option in the Classifier Editor for the semantics used when searching for objects. To reduce the time for building hash tables, they are saved into a file with the ".seh" extension and read when the map opening. When saving a map into the packed SITZ\MAPZ\MPTZ format, hash tables are packed in a common archive with the map. The new algorithm makes it possible to execute more requests on search from application tasks in multithreaded mode and improve the performance of server applications..

    In the "Classifier Editor", the list of mathematical operations for describing the semantics-formula has been expanded. The value of such semantics is automatically calculated when updating the coordinates or semantics of the object and can participate in the formation of the conventional symbol of the object through a series of objects (a matrix of conventional symbols, depending on the combination of the semantics values) or based on programmable symbols.

    For displaying polygons with a point symbol, a new object property has been added - "Polygon with a point". For objects with this property, when creating and editing an object, or when sorting, a subobject with one point in the center of the polygon is automatically created. If a conventional symbol of polygon contains polygon parameters and parameters of a point or vector symbol, the corresponding symbol will be displayed in the center of the polygon. The user can change the position of the point in the "Map Editor".

  • 22.03.2021 "Workstation of cadastral engineer" provides building a survey profile of a route for projected road
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of cadastral engineer" version 13.6.4 has been developed. In the new version the new mode "Building a road profile" has been developed, included into the group of modes "Creation diagrams and drawings". The mode is intended for automatic building the longitudinal profile of the projected route of a motor or railroad according to the line object indicated on the map. The formed drawing contains two lines of a vertical profile, along the existing surface of a relief and a design line built by interpolation methods. The design line of the route profile contains extended linear sections with a selection of relief slopes that are optimal for their overcoming by transport. The profile also displays a plan of the route (a map image in a strip of a given width along the route), design elements and help information.

    To analyze the project line of the road, information about bridge crossings and tunnels is collected along the route. The received information is displayed on the profile in the form of special conventional symbols. The prepared drawing can be saved as a separate map or as graphic documents with division into pages of a given size in JPG, PNG, TIF format or as a multi-page PDF document.

    To perform computational and analytical tasks, the use of expressions describing formulas and mathematical operations on the values of object attributes has been expanded. The calculations use semantics and metric characteristics: area, perimeter, coordinates of the first point, coordinates of the center of the contour, object number and others. The "Object Search" dialog has been improved for entering mathematical formulas and the values to which the calculation result must correspond. In the "Classifier Editor" the list of mathematical operations for describing the semantics-formula used for updating the coordinates of an object or its conventional sign has been expanded.

    The mode "Search by cadastral number or address" has been improved, the possibility has been added for a choice of a source of search: on a map or in Rosreestr. When using the search in the Rosreestr, the information found at the specified cadastral number or address is displayed in the "Information from State Real Estate Cadastre" dialog, with moving the map to the location of the found object.

    The digital classifier of the forestry.v2 map has been improved, which is used to create annexes to the forest declaration, approved by the order of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (Russia) of July, 30th, 2020 N 539. To generate graphical annexes to the forestry declaration, new report templates have been developed and the processing of new markers has been added. The #Area_ga# marker provides the output into the report of the area of the object in hectares, and the #STR3BL# marker outputs the geodetic coordinates of the characteristic points of the boundaries into the report.

  • 19.03.2021 In GIS "Panorama" an application of mathematical expressions has been expanded when searching, editing and displaying terrain maps
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" version 13.6.4 has been developed. The new version expanded the use of mathematical expressions (formulas), including various mathematical operations on the values of the object semantics and its measuring properties when searching, editing objects, forming the view of conventional symbols of map objects and in other tasks. A bookmark for entering a list of mathematical formulas and a range of values that the calculation result must correspond to has been added into the "Object Search" dialog. When searching for objects, you can set the selection of objects according to the correspondence of calculations to the specified ranges of values for one of the formulas or all at once. For example, if there is semantics with the amount of saltpeter in tons applied to a given area, it is necessary to select areas where from 40 to 50 kg of nitrogen is applied per hectare. Let the semantics 123 contain the amount of saltpeter applied to the plot in tons. Since the area of the plot (S) is calculated in square meters, and ammonium nitrate contains 34.5% of nitrogen, the formula will look like: "#123*1000*0.345/(S/10000)" or simplified "#123*3450000/S". The limit values must be set to 40 and 50. For reverse sampling of areas where the fertilizer dose is less than 40 or more than 50, you need to change the limit values in places. There are supported the math operations ABS, ARM, SIN, COS, TG, CTG, MIN, MAX, POW2, POW3, SQRT2, SQRT3, LOG, LOG10 and others. Area, perimeter, coordinates of the first point, coordinates of the center of the contour, unique number and other properties of the object can be used in calculations.

    The mode "Calculations on semantics of selected objects" in the Map Editor task has been improved. The time for calculating and filling the semantics of objects according to a mathematical formula specified by the user has been reduced by 7 times. More complex mathematical expressions are supported, including various mathematical operations on the values of the semantics of an object and its measuring properties.
    In the "Classifier Editor", the list of mathematical operations for describing the semantics of the formula has been expanded. The value of such semantics is automatically calculated when updating the coordinates or semantics of the object and can participate in the formation of the conventional symbol of the object through a series of objects (a matrix of conventional symbols, depending on the combination of the semantics values) or based on programmable symbols.

    The task "Geodesy editor" has been improved. In a mode "Search by cadastral number or address" the possibility has been added for a choice of a source of search: on a map or in Rosreestr. When using the search in the Rosreestr, the information found at the specified cadastral number or address is displayed in the "Information from State Real Estate Cadastre" dialog. If you have an access key to the Yandex.Maps API geocoder, the map is moved to the center of the found object. The tools have been implemented for the formation of graphic applications to the forest declaration, approved by the order of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (Russia) of July, 30th, 2020 N 539. "To print the summary report on the allocated objects" mode provides the formation of attachments 1 and 2 to the forest declaration, and the "To print the LAND-SURVEYING on semantics of object" mode of attachments 3 and 4 to the forest declaration. To generate reports, new report templates have been developed, located in the Geodesy.dot folder. There is added a processing of the #Area_ga# marker for displaying the area of the object in hectares in the report and the #STR3BL# marker for displaying the geodetic coordinates of the characteristic points of the object boundaries in the report.

    The forestry.v2.rscz digital map classifier has been improved, which is used to prepare a digital map containing the information necessary for filling out a forest declaration. There is implemented a reading and saving a ZIP-package of a document, including an XML file with its details and attached PDF files, without using an external archiver.

    A new mode "Building a road profile" has been developed, included into the group of modes "Creation diagrams and drawings". The mode is intended for automatic building the longitudinal profile of the projected route of a motor or railroad according to the line object indicated on the map. The generated drawing contains the profile line of the existing relief surface, the design line of the route profile containing extended linear sections with the selection of optimal slopes, the route plan (a map image in a strip of a given width along the route), design elements and help information.
    Along the route line a gathering of data on bridges transitions and tunnels is carried out. The received information is displayed on the profile in the form of special symbols. The prepared drawing can be saved as a separate map or as graphic documents with division into pages of a given size in JPG, PNG, TIF format or as a multi-page PDF document.

  • 17.03.2021 GIS WebService SE expands the possibilities of search of spatial objects on the basis of the international standard OGC Filter Encoding 2.0
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebService SE version 13.9.2 has been developed. In the new version the filter has been added for selecting spatial objects by semantics on the basis of the international standard OGC Filter Encoding 2.0 Encoding Standard 09-026r1 and ISO/DIS 19143. The filter is passed through a complex XML-RPC request. The filter allows you to compose group operations for searching for objects. For example, to find objects that have "Name" = "Oryol" or "Moscow", and the population is more than 10 million, but less than 30 million inhabitants. The new filter was added for selection of objects by measurements (area, perimeter, height, length). This filter can be applied in all requests that result in an xml/gml or geoJSON file, for example, to find objects with an area of less than 100 m2, but more than 20 m2. Use of the international standards expands possibilities of applications (GIS WebServer SE, Databank of DM and RSE and others) for search and selection of data.
    For GetBound request, an output of preferable formats depending on data type has been added. This will allow the GIS WebServer SE administrator to correctly set the data format (PNG or PNG8). A new request has been added that allows to form the user layers using a GEOJSON file.
    Support for working with three types of DBMS directly PostgreSQL, Oracle, MS SQL Server has been implemented. The service administrator has been improved. There is added the ability to disable analytics of the service in order to save server resources. A button has been added to the service panel to clear the layer cache.
    GIS WebService SE supports all international standards (OGC WFS, WFS-T, WMS, WMTS, WCS), which are used to transfer and display spatial data. In the program the possibility has been implemented for issuing tiles by any user or local coordinate system. The application has been implemented on Windows and Linux platforms, is compatible with Apache, IIS and nginx web servers.
    The new version of the program and the documentation are placed on the website in the Download section.

  • 16.03.2021 Maps of the Belgorod and Bryansk Oblast on the geoportal "Bank of spatial data" were updated
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" prepared and placed on the geoportal "Bank of spatial data" the maps of the Belgorod and Bryansk regions. The maps were formed using OpenStreetMap data, source data was obtained from Geofabrik website. To work with the maps, you can use the GIS Panorama Mini program or other software products of KB "Panorama".

    The maps were led to the modernised classifier of large-scale plans of scale 1: 5 000 (map5000m.rsc) and were saved into a packed project (MPTZ). The MPTZ format project includes a digital map of the region's territory (country, subject of the federation, administrative region), a map of the administrative-territorial division of the region and a digital classifier. Publishing of updates in bank of spatial data is made by using the program of Databank of digital maps and remote sensing data.

  • 15.03.2021 A training video lesson on calculating parameters of local coordinate systems (LCS) has been prepared
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a video lesson of calculating the parameters of the projection of the local coordinate system by a set of points. Users of the Workstation of "Cadastral engineer" or the GIS "Panorama" can independently calculate the parameters of the transition from the local coordinate system to the state one by a set of point coordinates.

    The parameters of the transition between the local coordinate system and state coordinate systems, catalogs of coordinates of geodetic points in the local coordinate system are permanently stored in the federal fund of spatial data and are provided to interested parties in the order prescribed by part 7 of article 10 of the Federal Law of December, 30th, 2015 N 431-FZ "About geodesy, cartography and spatial data". If it is not possible to obtain the transition keys, you can calculate the approximate parameters using the task "Calculation of projection parameters of local coordinate system".

    The training material demonstrates the features of the task "Calculation of projection parameters of local coordinate system". The initial data for calculations are the coordinates of points in the local (X, Y) and geodetic coordinate system (latitude, longitude). Geodetic coordinates can be loaded from the catalog of coordinates or calculated from coordinates in the state (CS42, CS63, CS95) or local coordinate system with known parameters. The task calculates the longitude of the axial meridian, the latitude of the main point, the scale on the axial meridian, the offsets of the coordinates along the X and Y axes, the angle of rotation of the axes. The results of calculations can be saved to an XML file for later use when creating electronic maps.

    You can view the training materials in the "Video lessons" section.

  • 09.03.2021 Maps of Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) and Chukotka Autonomous Okrug on the geoportal "Bank of spatial data" were updated
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" prepared and placed on the geoportal "Bank of spatial data" the maps of the the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) and the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug. The maps were formed using OpenStreetMap data, source data was obtained from Geofabrik website. To work with the maps, you can use the GIS Panorama Mini program or other software products of KB "Panorama".

    The maps were led to the modernised classifier of large-scale plans of scale 1: 5 000 (map5000m.rsc) and were saved into a packed project (MPTZ). The MPTZ format project includes a digital map of the region's territory (country, subject of the federation, administrative region), a map of the administrative-territorial division of the region and a digital classifier. Publishing of updates in bank of spatial data is made by using the program of Databank of digital maps and remote sensing data. Publishing contents of bank of spatial data on the geoportal and data access for downloading are implemented by means of GIS WebServer SE.

  • 07.03.2021 In the GIS "Operator" for Linux an execution of search requests to the spatial data has been accelerated
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Operator" SE version 13.4.0 has been developed for OS Astra Linux SE (releases "Smolensk" and "Leningrad") and OS Zarya. In the new version of the program, the search speed of objects with given semantic characteristics is increased by an average of 1000 times due to the indexing of semantics values using polynomial hashing methods, constructing values reference books and other improvements of search algorithms. On a test case of 4 000 000 objects, a search was performed using three indexed semantics: "Name", "Number of inhabitants", "Unique object identifier", which were filled in for more than 3 350 000 objects. The speed of performing sample of objects has decreased from 4 seconds to 4-5 milliseconds. The additional amount of RAM for placing the hash tables was 95 MB, the size of the source map was 802 MB. To reduce the time for building hash tables, they are saved into a file with the ".seh" extension and read when the map opening. When saving a map into the packed SITZ\MAPZ\MPTZ format, hash tables are packed in a common archive with the map. The new algorithm makes it possible to execute more requests on search from application tasks in multithreaded mode and improve the performance of server applications.

    In the new version, the transformation of vector maps into a preset coordinate system has been accelerated by 4-6 times. When adding a map with transformation, a copy of the source map is created in the map subdirectory with a name containing the name of the passport file and the current date. Additionally, the opening and first display of maps has been accelerated due to the formation of a "*.sol" file with a tree of territorial distribution of objects onto each map sheet. When the map is opened, the objects tree is read and the first display is accelerated by 5-15 times (for a map with 2 million objects, the opening and first display is accelerated from 9-12 seconds to 1 second). When sorting a map in SITZ\MAPZ format or saving an MPTZ project, the tree of objects is saved in a packed data file with further acceleration of the first opening of a map. In the absence of the "*.sol" file the automatic constructing a tree and file saving are carried out.
    Possibility has been added for displaying a packed project of spatial data MPTZ from the GIS Server of version 9.4 and higher. A packaged project may include a complex representation of the territory in the form of vector maps of different levels of detail, images of the terrain in RSW format, matrixes of heights and matrixes of quality characteristics of the terrain, insets from the same data, the reference to data from the GIS Server and from geoportals by various protocols. All data sets are packed into one file of MPTZ format. The total amount of packed data is reduced by 3-10 times. The speed of data exchange, packed into an MPTZ project, increases 5-20 times, taking into account the decrease in the number of transferred files. The size of the MPTZ file and the number of sets in the project are not limited. Maps are packed together with classifiers, a tree of distribution of objects over the map area, multiscale objects (generalized contours for different display scales) and hash tables indexed for search of objects semantics, pyramids of tiles, rasters and matrixes, which provides high speed of display and data search. The virtual folder on the GIS Server can be supplemented/updated by MPTZ projects in a background mode, changing the area and detail of the background cartographic coverage and the composition of remote sensing data without additional data administration. Packaged MPTZ projects can be formed by region (as, for example, on Digital maps page) or according to nomenclature sheets (for example, at a scale of 1: 500 000), which allows you to quickly form a complex coverage of a given territory.

    The classifier of objects of the operational situation operator.rsc has been updated. There is specified the type of conventional signs such as command posts, communication facilities, engineering equipment, units of permanent readiness and many others contained in the layers: "Actions of ground forces. Strikes, fires of missile-artillery means", "Engineering troops", "FSB bodies", "MIA of the RF","GIBDD of MIA of the RF", "Ministry of Transport of the RF", "Electronic Warfare troops", "Signal troops", "Road Bodies of the RF", "Space troops", "Mobilization deployment", "Moral and psychological support of troops", "EMERCOM and Civil defense", "Operational objects of general use", "Border agencies. Management", "Enemy - position, actions", "Strategic missile forces", "Formations and military units of technical troops", "Topogeodetic support of troops" and others.

    Classifiers of digital topographic maps of scales : 25 000, 1: 50 000, 1: 100 000, 1: 200 000, 1: 500 000, 1: 1 000 000 have been updated. There were specified the parameters of scaling of conventional symbols of linear and areal objects with filling signs and contours of various thicknesses for layers of hydrography, land relief, road network and road structures, vegetation, soils and lava covers, industrial and social objects, borders, fences, certain natural phenomena and territories. The updated classifiers provide support for multiscale topographic maps, along with automatic generalization of contours for different scales, setting the ranges of objects visibility.

    The emercom.v2.rscz classifier has been updated, designed to create electronic maps of emergency situations. For accounting objects under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Emergencies, and highlighting these objects with special conventional symbols, the following objects have been added: Label of an object under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Emergencies, Label of an object under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Emergencies (simplified), Building under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Emergencies.
    The classifier of aeronautical maps dfc.rscz has been updated. There are clarified the conventional symbols of objects, the width of which depends on the length of the signature in the symbol: 5100300 Signature of landing course, 4000600 Signature of control area (CTA) without transition altitude, 4000800 Signature of Flight Information Sector (FIS), 4000200 Signature of Flight Information Region (FIR), 4000200 Signature of the control area (CTA), 4000200 Signature of the Aerodrome Flight Information Zone (AFIZ), 4000200 Signature of the restricted zone of P-zone, 4000200 Signature of the danger zone of the D-zone, 4000200 Signature of the R-zone flight restriction zone, 4000200 Signature of TSA Temporary Reserved Airspace, 2001200 Signature of terminal turning point, 2001200 Signature of waypoint RNAV, 2000510 Signature of ILS. When you change the text of the signature selected in the sign, the width of the sign will be automatically changed so that the text remains within the frame.
    The user interface and functionality of the task of constructing a mathematical base have been expanded. In the new version, when processing a multisheet map, the user can select from the list and process only the required set of sheets. The projection parameters of sheets located in different zones are automatically converted to the projection parameters of the first sheet during the process of construction. The task implements a separate detailed setting the parameters of rectangular and cartographic grids. To speed up working the task on maps with a large number of sheets, it is possible to disable transaction logging.

    When saving and opening the projects of maps in MPT\MPTZ format, the currently specified contents of display for each project map is taken into account. Into a project file the records of XML format in the form of sections with the name [#xml#vclxNNN] have been added. It allows to form from one set of maps the projects of different composition of layers, scale, color design for use in the form of inserts in various reports and other tasks.

    When importing a set of maps sheets of SXF and TXF format, specified by the list in the DIR file, the ability has been added for transfer of sheets by longitude on +/-360 degrees. It allows to duplicate the columns of sheets in the western and\or eastern hemisphere for expansion of dimensions of work region up to -360/+360 degrees. To duplicate sheets, copy the required file with a different name (for example, rename 01-12.sxf to 01-12_west.sxf) and change its nomenclature so that all sheets in the region have a unique designation (for example, rename 01-12 to 01-12_west ). Then, in a text editor, add a line with a new name sxf or txf into the DIR file and press the tab after the file name and enter the direction of transfer (for example, -360 or +360). The recalculation of coordinates and sheet passport will be performed automatically when importing the work region by the DIR file.

  • 05.03.2021 "Workstation of Geologist" supports matrix algebra in engineering calculations
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of Geologist" version 13.6.3 has been developed. In the new version of the program the "Matrix calculator" has been updated, that provides execution of engineering calculations with using the methods of matrix algebra. Calculations can use simultaneously matrixes of qualities and matrixes of heights. Results of calculations will be presented in the form of a new matrix of qualities.
    The matrix calculator supports not only computational operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication), but also logical operations for comparing elements of matrixes of heights of a relief and quality characteristics of the terrain. Many problems solved using matrix algebra are reduced to finding areas in which the values from the matrix must meet a given condition. The matrix calculator allows you to build expressions to form a request of engineering calculation with a combination of calculation and comparison methods. For example, on the basis of a matrix of heights and a matrix of quality containing values of level of water rising, it is possible to build a matrix of depths.
    The matrix calculator allows you to perform geological, hydrological and mine surveying calculations to obtain estimated matrixes containing binary values - whether it meets or does not meet the expression conditions. The matrixes of the estimated coefficients are further used for contouring the areas corresponding to the given calculation conditions. For example, the expression: Con("1.podolsk.mtw" > 160; "1.podolsk.mtw"; setNull), allows you to solve the problem of finding areas in which the value of the matrix of heights podolsk.mtw is greater than 160.

    In the new version of the program, due to the use of multithreaded processing on a multicore processor, the import of rasters and matrixes from the GeoTIFF, PNG, JPEG, SRTM, IMG formats into the internal formats of the "Panorama" geoinformation platform has been significantly accelerated. For users who have the right to view the state of the GIS Server operation, in the "Monitoring" bookmark, there is added the ability to save the log (protocol) of the server operation into a text file for further analysis or sending to the technical support service.

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

  • 03.03.2021 New edition of the digital classifier for creating schemes of territorial planning of the Russian Federation (terrplan.v5.rscz) has been prepared
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have updated the digital classifier of schemes of territorial planning terrplan.v5.rscz. The classifier is intended for the preparation of the graphic part of territorial planning documents, in accordance with the Order of the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation dated 01/09/2018 № 10 "On approval of the Requirements for the description and display in the documents of territorial planning of objects of federal significance, objects of regional significance, objects of local significance and on recognizing as invalid the order of the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia dated December 7, 2016 №793 ".
    In accordance with the section of the order "Principles for the formation of cartographic conventional symbols of objects" a large number of objects with a polygon localization as a symbol have the value "not displayed" or do not have an indication about the view of conventional symbol. This causes large-scale schemes to be displayed with empty areas that actually contain various objects. To improve the clarity of the schemes with the preservation of the number of objects contained in the scheme, the symbol of the polygon includes an image of a point symbol with the same code as that of the polygon.
    In the classifier terrplan.v5.rscz for ranges new property - "Polygon with a point" is added. The user can change the position of the point in the "Map Editor". At changing the characteristics of object "Object status" and "Object value", the view of the sign in the center of the polygon and the contour of the object change accordingly.
    For objects with this property, when creating and editing an object, or when sorting, a subobject with one point in the center of the polygon is automatically created. If a conventional symbol of polygon contains polygon parameters and parameters of a point or vector symbol, the corresponding symbol will be displayed in the center of the polygon. The user can change the position of the point in the "Map Editor".
    Classifier survey.v5.rscz has been updated.
    The digital classifier is included into the GIS "Panorama" and is used to structure and unify information about objects of federal significance, objects of regional significance and objects of local significance, necessary for the preparation of territorial planning documents of the Russian Federation, constituent entities of the Russian Federation and municipalities.
    The updated classifier is available for download in the "Classifiers" section.

  • 02.03.2021 Examples for demonstrating technology of work with spatial databases have been prepared
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a set of examples demonstrating technologies for working with spatial databases. The set includes archives of demo databases that can be deployed in PostgreSQL, Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server, and also a project of maps intended for use in "Panorama" geoinformation products. Access to spatial databases (DB) running under the control of "industrial" DBMS PostgreSQL, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server is implemented at the level of the geoinformation core and is supported in the server and desktop applications of KB "Panorama", as well as in applications based on the geoinformation core "Panorama" with use of the MAPAPI interface or components from toolset of GIS ToolKit and GIS Constructor.

    Demonstration spatial databases contain a fragment of the map of the city of Petrozavodsk in the Republic of Karelia, divided into separate thematic layers (hydrography, road network, buildings, etc.), which are physically represented in separate database tables. Each such spatial layer corresponds to a *.dbm file included in the demo. The * .dbm file is required for opening a spatial layer from a database. In the software products of KB "Panorama", both a separate spatial layer and the whole map can be opened. For this, a map project (*.mpt) is used that combines several spatial layers.

    The demo example for each of the above DBMSs includes a readme.ru.txt file containing instructions for deploying a demo spatial database. Demonstration examples of spatial databases are available for download in the Download section.

  • 01.03.2021 Bank of spatial data has been supplemented with a map of England
    Geoportal "Bank of the spatial data" has been supplemented with a map of England, formed according to OpenStreetMap data. Source data were obtained from Geofabrik website. To work with the map, you can use the GIS Panorama Mini program or other software products of KB "Panorama".

    The map was led to the modernised classifier of large-scale plans of scale 1: 5 000 (map5000m.rsc). Publishing of updates in bank of spatial data is made by using the program of Databank of digital maps and remote sensing data. Publishing contents of bank of spatial data on the geoportal and data access for downloading are implemented by means of GIS WebServer SE.

    Free maps on the basis of OpenStreetMap data are available for download on the page "Digital maps".

  • 26.02.2021 GIS Server supports the publication of new type of spatial data
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS Server version 9.4 has been developed. In the new version a support of access to the packed projects of MPTZ format has been added. The packaged project may include a comprehensive representation of the territory in the form of vector maps of different levels of detail, terrain images in RSW format, matrixes of heights and matrixes of terrain quality characteristics. The virtual folder on the GIS Server can be supplemented/updated by MPTZ projects in the background mode, changing the area and detail of the background cartographic coverage and the composition of remote sensing data without additional data administration. To read MPTZ, the client must be version 13.6.3 or higher.

    Support for the formats DBM, SITZ, MAPZ, MPTZ has been added to the procedure for backup of vector maps. The SITZ, MAPZ, MPTZ extensions have been added into the filter of vector maps for monitoring virtual folders. The protocol for loading data sets into the Databank of the Digital Maps and ERS is written in UTF-8 encoding. Calculation of checksums of files when writing into the Databank of Digital Maps and ERS is performed using the CRC32 algorithm. The program has improved the caching of packed sitz\mapz maps opened from another server. The algorithm for backup of DBM files has been changed to exclude the background opening of the spatial database without an explicit client request. The dongle driver has been updated from version 6 to version 7 for correct operation of the network license.

    The GIS Server is designed to provide remote access to vector maps, remote sensing data, matrixes, documents and spatial databases of users of the programs the GIS "Panorama", GIS "Operator", GIS WebService SE and others. Users of desktop and web applications on different platforms can simultaneously view and edit data in accordance with access rights.

  • 25.02.2021 In "Workstation of urban planner" the tools of information interaction with FSIS TP have been updated
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of urban planner" version 13.6.3 has been developed. In the new version the tools of information interaction with Federal State Information System of Territorial Planning have been improved. In the program the mode of saving schemes of territorial planning and maps of master plans in GML format has been updated. For an unloading of maps in local or local coordinate system for which there is no EPSG code, it is possible to set value equal to zero. During the import and export of territorial planning schemes and master plans with zero EPSG code, a message appears - invalid EPSG code for the TP scheme, the error is recorded into the protocol, but the work is not interrupted. It allows to unload the information for transfer to FSIS TP.
    To implement the requirements for describing and displaying objects of federal, regional and local significance in territorial planning documents, in accordance with the appendix to order № 10 of the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia, KB "Panorama" has also developed a terplan.v4.rscz digital map classifier, which contains the required list of objects and attributes. "Workstation of urban planner" supports the creating and editing the maps of territorial planning's documents and their unloading into exchange formats. In the new version of the program, the mode of export to SHP of schemes of territorial planning and master plans maps has been improved. There is added an automatic filling with default values for required attributes GLOBALID - object identifier and CLASSID - object code. The GUID of the map object is used for filling the GLOBALID. To fill in the CLASSID, semantics with code 32800 is used. If it is absent in the object, then the classification code of the object from the classifier is recorded.

    In FSIS TP, it is allowed to place approved and project documents of territorial planning both in vector and in raster form. To increase the speed of loading raster data from FSIS TP in the "Workstation of urban planner" the import of graphic files of the GeoTIFF, PNG, JPEG and other formats into the RSW format has been improved. Due to the use of multithreaded processing on a multicore processor, the task execution time has been reduced by 3-6 times. The control example from 384 GeoTIFF files in volume of 45 GB was processed for 57 minutes instead of 190 minutes in the previous version of the program.

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

  • 24.02.2021 Examples of projects of 3D-models of territories and scenarios for GIS WebServer SE have been updated
    KB "Panorama" has prepared a new project of a three-dimensional model of the territory of Moscow and Moscow Region to demonstrate the possibilities of three-dimensional modeling of a universal GIS for constructing geoportals for various purposes GIS WebServer SE. The project contains data from open sources: images, maps on the basis of OpenStreetMap data, elevation data. The three-dimensional view of the map objects is built dynamically with using the templates of models specified in the library of three-dimensional models of objects map5000m.p3d of the classifier of digital plans of cities at a scale of 1: 5 000 map5000m.rscz. Such approach allows to quickly obtain 3D terrain model which will correspond to all changes of objects on a two-dimensional map. The presence in the library of models of near and far three-dimensional view accelerates the display of the terrain model in general, with the possibility of more detailed display of objects nearby. The project includes models of the Moscow Kremlin, Red Square, the Cathedral of Christ the Savior, Zaryadye Park and other sights and outstanding objects of the capital. They were prepared by the designers of KB "Panorama" using photographic materials and reference information in the editor of three-dimensional models and tied to the terrain using the import of three-dimensional models in the task "Navigator 3D" in the GIS "Panorama". The import is made into a database of 3D-tiles of spatial data in DB3D format to display accurate and realistic 3D models of unlimited size.

    A new example of the dynamic scenario "Emergency Scenario in Novorossiysk" has been added into the "South of Russia" project. The project itself is also made on the basis of data from open sources. The scenario was created in the "Navigator 3D" task in the GIS "Panorama" using the operator.rscz classifier of objects of operational situation and its library of three-dimensional models of weapons and equipment operator.p3d. Creation and playback of dynamic scenarios allows you to simulate and calculate actions, their time and sequence for various services in case of emergencies.
    The updated examples of projects of three-dimensional models of territories are designed to show the variety of data, on the basis of which a high-quality three-dimensional model of the terrain can be obtained when building geoportals for various purposes with using the GIS WebServer SE. In the projects of Moscow, Noginsk, Yekaterinburg, Kronstadt, South of Russia, a three-dimensional terrain model is built using maps of a unified cartographic base. Projects of Tomsk, Sochi, Chechen Republic, Kyrgyz Republic, Primorsky Krai demonstrate the capabilities of models using laser scanning of the terrain.

    GIS WebServer SE automates the publication of changing spatial data based on web services. The program creates new layers of data and allows you to edit them. GIS WebServer SE provides access to user data from any computer, displays a 3D model using open vector maps, matrixes of heights and terrain images without preparing a model. Allows to create thematic maps and cartograms, carries out search of the shortest routes in the graph of roads.

  • 20.02.2021 GIS "Panorama" supports new sources of spatial data
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" version 13.6.3 has been developed. The new version expands the list of supported DBMS for working with spatial databases: PostgreSQL with the PostGIS extension, Oracle with the Oracle Spatial or ArcSDE extension, Microsoft SQL Server. Database connection parameters (table, data view or SQL query) are customized in the database connection administration dialog and saved in a file with the DBM extension, which has an XML structure. The settings provide for entering the name of the DBM file, the mode and parameters of connecting to the database, creating the lists of displayed and edited objects and their semantic characteristics (attributes). GIS "Panorama" provides direct display and editing of arbitrary spatial databases in cartographic conventional symbols, including those created by other GIS, without additional third-party modules based on direct interaction with PostgreSQL, Oracle and MS SQL Server DBMS through SQL queries.
    Possibility has been added for displaying a packed project of spatial data MPTZ from the GIS Server of version 9.4 and higher. A packaged project may include a complex representation of the territory in the form of vector maps of different levels of detail, images of the terrain in RSW format, matrixes of heights and matrixes of quality characteristics of the terrain, insets from the same data, the reference to data from the GIS Server and from geoportals by various protocols. All data sets are packed into one file of MPTZ format. The total amount of packed data is reduced by 3-10 times. The speed of data exchange, packed into an MPTZ project, increases 5-20 times, taking into account the decrease in the number of transferred files. The size of the MPTZ file and the number of sets in the project are not limited. Maps are packed together with classifiers, a tree of distribution of objects over the map area, multiscale objects (generalized contours for different display scales) and hash tables indexed for search of objects semantics, pyramids of raster tiles and matrixes, which provides high speed of display and data search. The virtual folder on the GIS Server can be supplemented/updated by MPTZ projects in a background mode, changing the area and detail of the background cartographic coverage and the composition of remote sensing data without additional data administration. Packaged MPTZ projects can be formed by region (as, for example, on Digital maps page) or according to nomenclature sheets (for example, at a scale of 1: 500 000), which allows you to quickly form a complex coverage of a given territory.

    In the task of importing graphic files (GeoTIFF, PNG, JPEG and others), a loading the pyramid of raster tiles from the KMZ format has been added. A KMZ archive can contain a KML file and a set of raster files. The KML file contains a description of parameters of the raster data - the names and coordinates of a binding of rasters, and also the priority of their rendering. As a result of importing a pyramid of raster tiles from KMZ, a set of RSW files is formed combined into an MPT project. The MPT project contains a list of rasters in RSW format and the visibility borders of the rasters according to the "Draw Order" parameter.

    In the task of importing matrixes from SRTM, GeoTIFF formats, loading of the pyramid of matrixes of heights of a relief from the KMZ format has been added. The KMZ archive contains a KML file and a set of single-channel GeoTIFF files with data on elevation heights, from which a set of MTW files is formed combined into an MPT project with specified matrix visibility borders in accordance with the "Draw Order" parameter.

    The speed of searching for objects with given semantic characteristics is increased by an average of 1 000 times due to the indexing of semantics values using polynomial hashing methods, building reference books of values and other improvements of search algorithms. In a test case of 4 000 000 objects, a search was performed using three indexed semantics: "Name", "Number of inhabitants", "Unique object identifier", which were filled in for more than 3 350 000 objects. The speed of performing sample of objects has decreased from 4 seconds to 4-5 milliseconds. The additional amount of RAM for placing the hash tables was 95 MB, the size of the original map was 802 MB. To activate the construction of hash tables, it is necessary to enable the "Index for search" option in the Classifier Editor for the semantics used when searching for objects. To reduce the time for building hash tables, they are saved into a file with the ".seh" extension and read when the map opening. When saving a map in the packed SITZ\MAPZ\MPTZ format, hash tables are packed in a common archive with the map. The new algorithm makes it possible to execute more requests on search from application tasks in multithreaded mode and improve the performance of server applications.
    When importing GeoTIFF files, analysis of GeogCitationGeoKey and PCSCitationGeoKey tags has been added to support GSK-2011 and PZ-90.11 coordinate systems. Tag GeogCitationGeoKey can contain records of the type: "PZ-90.11 Zone 6" or "GSK-2011 Zone 7". The contents of the GeogCitationGeoKey and PCSCitationGeoKey tags supplement the numeric coordinate system parameters specified by other tags.

    In the task of editing the list of semantics, for convenience and acceleration of work, the ability to copy and paste semantics values by using the clipboard has been expanded. Copying to the clipboard is carried out by a combination of hot keys Ctrl+Ins, Ctrl+C, paste - Ctrl+V. The insertion of semantics value is supported both for a separate object and for objects in the selected range of cells of the semantics table. Selection of lines is carried out by holding the left button of the computer mouse. Insertion is possible for assigning a semantic value of one code to all table objects. For this, the "Paste from clipboard" item is assigned in the context menu.

    To display polygons with a point symbol, a new property of objects in the "Classifier Editor" has been added - "Polygon with a point". For objects with this property, when creating and editing an object, or when sorting, a subobject with one point in the center of the polygon is automatically created. If a conventional symbol of polygon contains polygon parameters and parameters of a point or vector symbol, the corresponding symbol will be displayed in the center of the polygon. The user can change the position of the point in the "Map Editor".

    Classifier survey.v5.rscz has been updated. To increase the speed of searching for objects by the value of semantic characteristics, the "Index for search" option is enabled for the following semantics: "Name", "House number", "Cadastral number", "Registration number", "Designation", "Forest block number", " Cadastral numbers of plots where the property is located", "Cadastral numbers of premises located in the property", "Cadastral numbers of parking spaces located in the property", "Cadastral number of a single immovable complex", "Plot number", "Surname of owner". In the classifier map5000m.rscz the option "Index for search" is enabled for the following semantics: "Name", "House number", "Designation", "City name", "District name", "Street name ","Village name". In the classifiers of digital topographic maps of scales 1: 25 000 - 1: 1 000 000, the "Index for search" option is enabled for the following semantics: "Name", "Number of inhabitants", "Political and administrative value", "Road number", "Number houses, pits, wells, etc.", "Number of inhabitants on a scale", "Name, text of the title in the national language "," Purpose of object ".

  • 16.02.2021 In GIS Constructor the processing of spatial data of large volume is accelerated
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS Constructor for Qt Designer SE version 13.4.0 has been developed for operating systems CentOS, Ubuntu, Astra Linux SE. In the new version, the transformation of vector maps into a preset coordinate system has been accelerated by 4-6 times. This expands support for both embedded devices, which have processor performance limitations, and high-performance systems, where it is necessary to use the available processor power maximally. When adding a map with transformation, a copy of the original map is created in the map subdirectory with a name containing the name of the passport file and the current date. Additionally, the opening and first display of maps has been accelerated due to the formation of a "*.sol" file with a tree of territorial distribution of objects onto each map sheet. When the map is opened, the objects tree is read and the first display is accelerated by 5-15 times (for a map with 2 million objects, the opening and first display is accelerated from 9-12 seconds to 1 second). When sorting a map in SITZ\MAPZ format or saving an MPTZ project, the tree of objects is saved in a packed data file with further acceleration of the first opening of a map. In the absence of the "*.sol" file the automatic constructing a tree and file saving are carried out.

    When saving and opening the projects of maps in MPT\MPTZ format, the currently specified contents of display for each project map is taken into account. Into a project file the records of XML format in the form of sections with the name [#xml#vclxNNN] have been added. It allows to form from one set of maps the projects of different composition of layers, scale, color design for use in the form of inserts in various reports and other tasks.

    This allows duplicate columns of sheets in the western and / or eastern hemispheres to expand the dimensions of the work area up to -360 / + 360 degrees. To duplicate sheets, you need to copy the required file with a different name (for example, rename 01-12.sxf to 01-12_west.sxf) and change its nomenclature so that all sheets in the region have a unique designation (for example, rename 01-12 to 01-12_west ). Then, in a text editor, add a line with a new name sxf or txf to the DIR file and press tab after the file name and enter the direction of hyphenation (for example, -360 or +360). Recalculation of coordinates and sheet passport will be performed automatically when importing a work area using a DIR file.

    When importing a set of maps sheets of SXF and TXF format, specified by the list in the DIR file, the ability has been added for transfer of sheets by longitude on +/-360 degrees. It allows to duplicate the columns of sheets in the western and\or eastern hemisphere for expansion of dimensions of work region up to -360/+360 degrees. To duplicate sheets, copy the required file with a different name (for example, rename 01-12.sxf to 01-12_west.sxf) and change its nomenclature so that all sheets in the region have a unique designation (for example, rename 01-12 to 01-12_west ). Then, in a text editor, add a line with a new name sxf or txf into the DIR file and press the tab after the file name and enter the direction of transfer (for example, -360 or +360). The recalculation of coordinates and sheet passport will be performed automatically when importing the work region by the DIR file.

    The display of DEMs has been improved: the color of the coverage point is calculated based on 16 adjacent heights using the bicubic interpolation method. The new method makes it possible to smooth the discreteness of the display of the matrix elements and the light-shadow mask (hillshade) of the relief, as well as to cut the image of the matrix by the frame with pixel accuracy. To display DEMs with smoothing, you must enable the main menu item Options\Display matrix with smoothing.
    The functionality of the QDMapWindow digital map display component has been expanded. The component implements the ability to open a fragment of a map bounded by a frame. This functionality allows you to work with a small area of the map, increasing the convenience and speed of work due to providing access only to the required data.

    GIS Constructor is a set of geoinformation components for use in the visual programming environment of Qt Designer, which allows you to develop your own GIS applications. The visualization of the contents of digital maps is made in conventional symbols adopted for topographic, geographical and various special maps. Geoinformation system has ample opportunities for performing calculations, for providing display of spatial data on various graphic devices in standard and user systems of conventional symbols. The main functions can be executed in multithreaded mode. It supports automatic optimization of used memory for processing large amounts of data (tens of gigabytes) on limited resources (hundreds of megabytes).

    The toolkit is adapted for work on a wide range of operating systems (Astra Linux SE, ALT Linux, Elbrus, Ubuntu, CentOS, QNX) and architectures (Intel, Elbrus, PowerPC, SPARC, ARM). The toolkit includes components of visual designing the GIS applications and library of a multiplatform multithreaded GIS core. GIS Constructor provides a cross-platform MAPAPI interface that allows a programmer to implement development in an operating system convenient for it. The developer can release GIS applications for a set of operating systems by simple assembly with minimal changes to the program source code.

In the new version, the display of conventional symbols the width of which changes when changing the text of signature inside the sign has been improved. In the "Editor of a vector sign" there is added the button "[T]" - Choice of a text chain for specifying the size of a sign. In order that the sign changes its width at changing the text of a chain, it is necessary in the list of chains to choose a text element by which the width of a sign will be controlled and to press the "[T]" button. [T] symbol will be displayed to the left of the selected chain. You need to choose the chain, the text of which is most likely to be longer than the rest. The chain coordinates should be closer to the edges of the frame, so that when the sign is stretched proportionally, empty areas are not formed at the edges of the signature. Stretchable signs are used in maps of the operational situation (control points), aeronautical maps (zone signatures), topographic maps (road number in a frame) and others.

    The classifier of objects of the operational situation operator.rsc has been updated. There is specified the type of conventional signs such as command posts, communication facilities, engineering equipment, units of permanent readiness and many others contained in the layers: "Actions of ground forces. Strikes, fires of missile-artillery means", "Engineering troops", "FSB bodies", "MIA of the RF","GIBDD of MIA of the RF", "Ministry of Transport of the RF", "Electronic Warfare troops", "Signal troops", "Road Bodies of the RF", "Space troops", "Mobilization deployment", "Moral and psychological support of troops", "EMERCOM and Civil defense", "Operational objects of general use", "Border agencies. Management", "Enemy - position, actions", "Strategic missile forces", "Formations and military units of technical troops", "Topogeodetic support of troops" and others.

    Classifier of emergency situation emercom.v2.rsc has been updated. There is specified the type of conventional symbols of the type of control points, departments of EMERCOM, elements of the warning system and others contained in the layers: "Objects of transport infrastructure", "Objects of communication systems, monitoring, warning and informing population", "Territories, objects of economy and infrastructure", "Objects of civil defense and ensuring the protection of the population from emergencies", "Objects, territories, routes and forces for carrying out evacuation measures", "Governing bodies and forces of the civil defense and RSChS", "Units and subdivisions of the civil defense and RSChS".

    In the new version, the transformation of vector maps from one coordinate system to another has been accelerated by 4-6 times. The task is called from the menu "Tools\Coordinate systems\Standard transformation" or when adding maps in different coordinate systems. Import of graphic files of GeoTIFF, PNG, JPEG and other formats into RSW format is accelerated by 3-6 times due to the use of multi-threaded processing on a multi-core processor. A test case from 384 GeoTIFF files in volume of 45 GB has been processed in 57 minutes instead of 190 minutes in the previous version. The optimization of the list of rasters in RSW format is 2-4 times faster due to the use of multi-threaded processing on a multi-core processor: compression, decompression and updating of general images of rasters (pyramids of tiles). A test case of 384 rasters with a total size of 125 GB is compressed using the JPEG algorithm up to 2.37 GB in 25 minutes instead of 48 minutes in the previous version of the program.Import of matrixes of heights and quality characteristics from HGT (SRTM), GeoTIFF and IMG files has been accelerated 3-5 times due to the use of multi-threaded processing on a multi-core processor. The test set from 379 GeoTIFF files in volume of 44 GB was processed in 44 minutes instead of 156 minutes in the previous version of the program.

    The tasks "Raster passport" and "Matrix passport" have been improved. The bookmark "Metadata" has been added, on which the code EPSG, a filename of metadata and the size of image or matrix in kilobytes have been specified. For editable raster or matrix files, saving metadata into an XML file is available. The metadata of images and matrices can contain the characteristics of the dataset (accuracy, coordinates of dimensions, conditional name, classification, etc.), as well as information about the organization and employees who create the sets.

    The task of connecting geoportals has been improved. Ability has been added for simultaneously connecting several layers according to the international standard OGC WMS or OGC WMTS through the "Open map from WMS server" dialog. In this case, each layer will be added as a separate connection in the general list.

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

  • 10.02.2021 GIS WebService SE expands the possibilities of information systems for analysis of spatial data
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebService SE version 13.8.0 has been developed. In the new version the list of supported requests for working with spatial objects has been expanded. For overlay operations, a request has been implemented to check the relative position of map objects, taking into account common intersection points or common segments. The request was added: whether the layer with 3D data into the list of setup file is published. For compatibility with Linux systems, all layer identifiers and data paths have become case sensitive. The parameter has been added that allows you to display the encoded value for semantics of the "Classifier" (list) type for GetFeature requests. A new parameter has been added to the GetFeature requests, which allows to limit the number of objects in the response for complex XMLRPC requests for each layer separately. The request for building thematic maps has been improved.

    The user interface is optimised. Additional parameters are hidden into the separate block. Possibility of connecting the tracks of motion of 3D objects has been added. Possibility of selecting the several schemes for a layer has been implemented.
    In order to improve security, into the program for Linux and MS Windows operating systems a control over the integrity of the installation and service files when it starts has been added. The reliability of work with data on the GIS Server is increased. The output of messages into the system event log has been improved.

    Possibility has been implemented to work with semantics from a DB directly without their additional settings in the dbm file and a transfer to the cache created by the service. This will greatly speed up the cache creation process, and also will simplify process of synchronisation of spatial data.
    GIS WebService SE supports all international standards (OGC WFS, WFS-T, WMS, WMTS, WCS), which are used to transfer and display spatial data. The program implements the ability to issue tiles for any user or local coordinate system. The application is implemented on Windows and Linux platforms and is compatible with Apache, IIS and nginx web servers.

    The new version of the program and documentation are posted on the website in the Download section.

  • 08.02.2021 Governor of the Ryazan region has highly appreciated development of Regional geoinformation system
    On February, 3rd 2021, the Governor of the Ryazan region Nikolay Ljubimov has held meeting on the reached results and prospects of development of Regional geoinformation system of the Ryazan region (RGIS RR). This system is intended for gathering, storage and continuous update of the information about the state and dynamics of development of objects and territories of the Ryazan region.
    RGIS RR was built using the serial software of KB "Panorama". GIS "Panorama" provides employees of various departments a functionality for the preparation of digital maps, which are subsequently placed on the spatial data server under the control of the GIS Server SE. The spatial data service GIS WebService SE provides the publication of web-layers based on the information located on the spatial data server. Representatives of regional departments widely use the mechanism of virtual folders for automatic web-publishing of layers, which can be accessed on the regional geoportal under the control of GIS WebServer SE. For the convenience of users, the layers of industry data are grouped into industry projects, access to which is determined by the role and availability of rights.
    The Minister of Digital Development, Information Technologies and Communications Valery Stroykov noted that to date, 54 industry projects have been created in the RGIS RR, containing thematic layers by subject areas and types of activity. As an example, the publicly significant project "Open Industry Data" was given, which contains information about spatial data in the public domain.
    "The system is multifunctional and is used not only by the authorities. It is open to a wide range of users - for citizens, organizations, including potential investors and companies that participate in urban planning activities. The development of this system is one of the important tasks that we are implementing within the framework of digital transformation of the Ryazan region. It is very important that the widest possible circle of people know about it, everyone who can benefit from it, "Nikolai Lyubimov emphasized.
    During the discussion of the prospects for the development of GIS, it was noted that in 2020 the adaptation of the module "Accounting for agricultural lands" was carried out, which will allow this year to prepare information for solving problems requiring a comprehensive analysis of data on agricultural lands. For the functioning of the module "Accounting for agricultural land", in addition to the existing programs, specialized industry solutions have been installed. "Workstation of agronomist" is intended for creating and conducting the maps of agricultural lands. "Panorama AGRO" is used for configuring and maintaining an agrarian database and setting up industry information projects. Access to the agrarian database and web-layers of agricultural land maps is provided by the agro-portal managed by GIS WebSrerver AGRO.
    The Governor instructed the heads of all ministries and departments to pay attention to the issues of updating data in the RGIS RR, which will make it possible to provide the necessary information to people as openly, accurately and authentically as possible. Nikolay Lyubimov also noted that GIS is an important tool in working with investors, developing territories, it can be used in the field of construction, agriculture, transport, land management, emergency services and more.

  • 04.02.2021 In GIS "Panorama" a processing of vector maps and remote sensing data of large volumes has been considerably accelerated
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" version 13.6.2 has been developed. In the new version, the transformation of vector maps from one coordinate system to another has been accelerated by 4-6 times.The task is called from the menu "Tools\Coordinate systems\Standard transformation" or when adding maps in different coordinate systems. When adding a map with transformation, a copy of the original map is created in the map subdirectory with a name containing the name of the passport file and the current date.

    Import of graphic files of GeoTIFF, PNG, JPEG and other formats into RSW format is accelerated by 3-6 times due to the use of multi-threaded processing on a multi-core processor. A test case from 384 GeoTIFF files in volume of 45 GB has been processed in 57 minutes instead of 190 minutes in the previous version.

    The optimization of the list of rasters in RSW format is 2-4 times faster due to the use of multi-threaded processing on a multi-core processor: compression, decompression and updating of general images of rasters (pyramids of tiles). A test case of 384 rasters with a total size of 125 GB is compressed using the JPEG algorithm up to 2.37 GB in 25 minutes instead of 48 minutes in the previous version of the program.

    Import of matrixes of heights and quality characteristics from HGT (SRTM), GeoTIFF and IMG files has been accelerated 3-5 times due to the use of multi-threaded processing on a multi-core processor. The test set from 379 GeoTIFF files in volume of 44 GB was processed in 44 minutes instead of 156 minutes in the previous version of the program.

    The tasks "Raster passport" and "Matrix passport" have been improved. The bookmark "Metadata" has been added, on which the code EPSG, a filename of metadata and the size of image or matrix in kilobytes have been specified. For editable raster or matrix files, saving metadata into an XML file is available. The metadata of images and matrices can contain the characteristics of the dataset (accuracy, coordinates of dimensions, conditional name, classification, etc.), as well as information about the organization and employees who create the sets.

    In the "Floor Plan Editor" the mode "Adding text" has been added. The mode is intended for drawing titles, explanatory captions and other texts onto the map. In the process of entering and editing text, the main standard tools of a regular text editor are available: moving the cursor (arrow keys), keys "Delete", "BackSpace", "Home", "End". In the process of entering and editing text, you can insert text fragments from the clipboard, change the orientation of the text relative to the anchor point (left, center, right), the position of the text on the map, the text font.

    There is improved a display of vector signs that look like a frame with text inside and other elements. In the "Editor of a vector sign" the "[T]" button has been added - Select a text chain to specify the size of the sign. In order for the sign to change its width when changing the text of a chain, it is necessary to specify in the list of chains the text element by which the width of the sign will be controlled and press the "[T]" button. [T] will be displayed to the left of the selected string. You need to choose the chain, the text of which is most likely to be longer than the rest. The chain coordinates should be closer to the edges of the frame so that when the sign is stretched proportionally, empty areas are not formed at the edges of the signature. Stretchable signs can be used in aeronautical maps (zones labels), topographic maps (a road number in a frame), operational maps (signature inside a flag) and others.

    The task of connecting geoportals has been improved. Ability has been added to simultaneously connect several layers according to the international standard OGC WMS or OGC WMTS through the "Open map from WMS server" dialog. In this case, each layer will be added as a separate connection into the general list.

    The dialog "Opening data from GIS Server" has been improved. For users who have the right to view the state of the GIS Server operation, in the "Monitoring" bookmark, the ability has been added to save the log (protocol) of the server operation to a text file for further analysis or sending to the technical support service.

    The task "Control of absolute heights" has been improved. Control of heights in areas of areal rocks has been added. When searching for unacceptable elevation differences along the selected profile, it is determined that the drop point hits the inside of the areal rock, where such differences are possible. If it hits, the message is logged; if the "Issue warnings" mode is set, this mode is disabled by default. The refinement reduces the number of messages, which makes it easier to analyze the control result. The number of sections for horizontal and vertical profiling of objects with absolute height has been increased. For linear and areal objects, instead of one profile, three are built - in the center and at the edges of the dimension, which helps to reduce misses when searching for unacceptable height differences.

    The "View error" mode of the "Map Editor" task has been improved. Possibility of saving records about the detected errors into a text file of CSV format has been added. CSV format is supported by spreadsheets and database management systems. The log can contain messages from any tasks that generate warnings: messages about errors in semantics, double points in the metric, the presence of loops, errors of subobject occurrence, mismatch of the contours of objects, intersection of the contours of objects, messages about mismatch of heights, missing contours, errors in elevation marks, mismatch of semantics of adjacent objects of adjacent sheets and others. For the each record of the file of the map control's protocol, the text of the message and information for identifying the object for which this message was generated (unique object number, sheet number, sheet name, point coordinates) can be placed into the CSV file.

    The classifier of aeronautical maps dfc.rsc has been updated. There are clarified the conventional symbols of objects, the width of which depends on the length of the signature in the symbol: 5100300 Signature of landing course, 4000600 Signature of control area (CTA) without transition altitude, 4000800 Signature of Flight Information Sector (FIS), 4000200 Signature of Flight Information Region (FIR), 4000200 Signature of the control area (CTA), 4000200 Signature of the Aerodrome Flight Information Zone (AFIZ), 4000200 Signature of the restricted zone of P-zone, 4000200 Signature of the danger zone of the D-zone, 4000200 Signature of the R-zone flight restriction zone, 4000200 Signature of TSA Temporary Reserved Airspace, 2001200 Signature of terminal turning point, 2001200 Signature of waypoint RNAV, 2000510 Signature of ILS. When you change the text of the signature selected in the sign, the width of the sign will be automatically changed so that the text remains within the frame.

  • 28.01.2021 In GIS ToolKit the possibilities of interactive map editing have been expanded
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS ToolKit of version 13.2.1 has been developed for creating GIS-applications in the environment of C ++ Builder, Delphi Embarcadero. The new version expands the possibilities of the TMapEditMetric component, which allows the programmer to implement interactive creation and editing of metrics (coordinates) of map objects in his application. In addition to the available modes for creating objects and subobjects, moving of objects, adding, deleting and editing metric points and selecting an arbitrary point on the contour of an object, a mode for selecting metric points of an existing object to "capture" points of other map objects or nodes of a rectangular map grid has been added into the component. If the corresponding option is activated, when the mouse cursor moves over the map, objects are searched for in the immediate vicinity of the cursor and the current edited point is "pulled" to the nearest metric point of the found object. It is possible to "capture" both the "real" points of the nearest object - in this case, only the points recorded in the metric of the object are taken, and "virtual" points - in this case, the coordinate of the point closest to the cursor on the contour of the object is taken, which is not necessarily included in the metric of this object.

    Into the TMapEditMetric component the method has been added allowing from the outside to set coordinates of a current edited point. This allows the programmer to implement additional control over process of interactive editing, complementing it, for example, with possibilities of positioning by pressing keys on the keyboard.

    In the updated component of interactive editing, a whole set of events has been added that allow you to perform its processing when you select an object point, edit it or delete it. In this case, in the event handler, it is possible to correct the coordinates of the point being edited or to cancel the corresponding operation altogether. This makes it possible to implement additional logic in the application - for example, control and prohibition of object points falling into certain zones.
    The TMapView and TMapScreen map display components have the ability to display a rectangular grid and control its parameters.

    The GIS ToolKit consists of a set of visual components (supplied in source code) and API functions of the GIS core for direct access to spatial data. The toolkit is intended for the development of client-server and desktop 32-bit and 64-bit applications that require processing and visualization of spatial data. Spatial data can be located both at the workplace (direct access to data) and in a local network or the Internet (components of access to the GIS Server or data exchange using international protocols are used).

  • 27.01.2021 Specialists of KB "Panorama" will make a presentation and hold a master class at the international conference "Geodesy, Mine Survey and Aerial Survey"
    From 11 to 12 February 2021 Moscow will host the 12th International Scientifically-Practical Conference "Geodesy, Mine Survey and Aerial Survey". As part of this event, specialists from KB "Panorama" will make a presentation and hold a master class "Integrated use of data of geodesy, mine survey and aerial survey". The event participants will be shown the capabilities of the professional GIS "Panorama" and industry solutions for processing and analyzing spatial data coming from various sources. The presentation and master class will reflect software technologies that implement a unified methodology for the integrated use of vector, matrix and raster data for solving applied problems.

    To process the results of field geodetic measurements, the means of importing data from digital devices, calculation and adjustment of measurements from the "Geodesy calculations" task are used. The calculation results are put on the map, where additional operations can be performed to calculate the coordinates of points and create on their basis linear and areal objects using the "Geodesy editor". For calculating coordinates of points on the basis of linear measurements along a route (for example, a road axis) the tools of support of linear coordinate system are used.

    Results of the laboratory analysis of soils are used for conducting a base of subsoil survey points presented in coordinates of wellhead. For control of boring operations, estimation of spatial position of a wellbore and a relative positioning of two and more wellbores, the set of modes "Well calculations" is intended. Soil survey points and a matrix of heights of a relief are used for creation of a matrix of layers characterising geological layers. Matrixes of qualities are used for building surfaces of qualitative characteristics or estimated indicators of terrain conditions, including for the analysis of hydrological conditions.

    Photographs obtained as a result of aerial survey using unmanned aerial vehicles are processed by photogrammetric tools for creating matrixes of heights and orthophotomaps. The processing results are sent to the GIS "Panorama" for manual and semi-automatic vectorization of terrain objects.

    We invite everyone to take part in the conference events.

New modes are grouped into a separate panel "Well calculations", they are intended for processing and analysis of three-dimensional data on the axis of the well, including processing of inclinometry measurements. The mode "Horizontal and vertical projection of the well axis" provides creation of inclinogram - scheme of a projection of well onto horizontal and vertical planes. This mode allows you to analyze the spatial location of several adjacent wells.

    The "Complex of hydrological tasks" included into the "Workstation of a geologist" is intended for an estimation of water filling of a given a given at changing the level of rising of water, and also obtaining the graphic documents with results of modelling. Geological and hydrological tasks use matrix data to analyze relief and terrain conditions. The matrix of heights is intended for relief modelling. The matrix of layers provides modelling of geological layers. The matrix of qualities is used to model and analyze various characteristics: the level of groundwater occurrence, the type of soil cover, the depth of the reservoir, the coefficient of mechanically mined soil, the level of flood waters, and much more. In the new version of the program the mode "Matrix calculator" has been added, intended for execution of operations of maps algebra. Algebra of maps - operations during performing of which, on the basis of one or several source matrixes, the new matrix is created, and values of cells of this matrix depend on values of cells of the source matrixes having identical coordinates. The use of this mode expands the possibilities for analyzing the results of engineering-geological and engineering-hydrological surveys of the area and assessing the hydrogeological conditions taken into account in the designing, construction and operation of real estate objects.

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

    In KB "Panorama" the Complex of the automated checking the quality and correction of maps version 7.1 has been developed. In the new version the procedures of checking the quality of a digital map have been improved. Control of double points of the objects metrics was updated. When performing control in edit mode, double points are filtered taking into account topological links with neighboring objects on the map sheet. Neighboring objects with common points are filtered at the same time. Endpoints are not filtered. Control of repetition of values of unique semantics on sheet has been added.

    A new mode "Control of values by symbol table" has been added into the control of objects semantics. This control allows you to find Latin characters in the values of the selected symbolic semantics and replace Latin characters with Cyrillic characters. This mode is relevant for characters that have the same image in Latin and Cyrillic, for example: K, A, M, E, P, T, O, H and others. Correction of the text semantics is necessary for the correct operation of tasks of search by the value of symbolic semantics, for example: by the name of the city, street, surname.

    There is added a control over the direction of digitizing multipolygons. Control of report of adjacent sheets has been improved. The check for the digitizing direction of linear objects going on the sheet frame has been implemented. Objects with the direction of digitization "Predefined" (linear rivers), "Lower right" (horizontals) are checked.
    The complex of automated checking the quality and correction of digital maps is designed to obtain a single digital map from the original digital maps in the SXF format, created according to different classifiers. The complex consists of a program of checking and correcting the DTM in SXF format, a utility for control of coordination of adjacent DTM sheets, a subroutine for combining adjacent DTM sheets and a procedure for analyzing the correspondence of the object content of maps and classifiers.

  • 10.01.2021 In professional vectorizer "Panorama-Editor" the tools of creation and checking the quality of digital topographical and special maps have been expanded
    In KB "Panorama" the professional vectoriozer "Panorama-Editor" version 13.6.1 has been developed. In the new version, in the "Map Editor" task, the composition of the "Graphic Objects" panel has been expanded: modes have been added for controlling the color, scale, transparency of the conventional symbol of the object selected on the map. In the mode of editing common vertexes the function of capture of nodes of other objects ('K') has been added. In the mode of union of selected line objects, the option Create polyline has been added to combine the selected line objects into one object. In the task "Lists of objects", the "Matching contours" mode has been added into the crossings search. The mode carries out search of objects at which the external and internal contours are matched. The direction of digitization, the position of the starting points and the sequence of the contours of the found objects may not coincide. The tools for viewing and editing tables of attributes of spatial databases, searching for data and viewing tables with a large number of records have been expanded. "Panorama Editor" provides direct display and editing of arbitrary spatial databases in cartographic conventional symbols, including those created by other GIS, without additional third-party modules based on direct interaction with PostgreSQL and Oracle DBMS through SQL queries.

    The block of geodesy and cadastral tasks has been improved. In a mode "the Information from the state cadastre of real estate" a support API of functions of Rosreestra on access to the data has been implemented. The mode provides sending requests for information about the cadastral objects available at the specified point. The obtained information in the form of a list of cadastral numbers is displayed on the corresponding pages of the dialog. When choosing a specific cadastral number of an object, a request and display of public cadastral information about a quarter, land plot or real estate object are performed.

    To improve the quality of created digital topographic and special maps and reduce the complexity of their verification, the automated data control tools have been updated. In the task "Control of absolute heights", the possibility of using the filter of objects for changing the composition of processed map objects has been implemented. Using the filter, you can specify: map layers and types of objects (localization), objects samples, list of nomenclature sheets, semantic and spatial characteristics of objects. Preliminary assessment of control results has been added. When a large number of errors "Discrepancy of elevation and code" (comparable to the total number of contour lines in the region) are issued, a message is displayed about the possible incorrectness of the vertical interval of relief in the map passport. The task "Coordination of adjacent sheets" has been improved, which perform a checking the coordination of objects of adjacent sheets of a vector map with the issuance of an error log. There is added a check for the digitizing direction of linear objects going on the sheet frame. Objects with the direction of digitization "Predefined" (linear rivers), "Lower right" (horizontals) are checked. The program of checking a vector map has been improved. Into the report on execution of the quality control of the DTM, the output of information on the control's types "Control of values by symbol table" and "Unique value control" has been added. The control of values by the symbol table allows you to find Latin characters in the values of the selected symbolic semantics and to replace Latin characters with Cyrillic characters. Control of unique values is used to check the repetition of semantics' values for which the "Unique value in the sheet" property is set in the map classifier. A new mode "Control of values by symbol table" has been added into the control of objects semantics. This control allows you to find Latin characters in the values of the selected symbolic semantics and replace Latin characters with Cyrillic characters. This mode is relevant for characters that have the same image in Latin and Cyrillic, for example: K, A, M, E, P, T, O, H and others. Correction of the text semantics is necessary for the correct operation of tasks of search by the value of symbolic semantics, for example: by the name of the city, street, surname.

    In the "Map print" dialog the ability has been added to limit the display area of the map by the specified boundary (for example, the administrative boundary of the territory). In this case, you can set the degree of transparency of the map display outside the borders of the main contour of the object from 0 (source image) to 100% (completely filled).

    When forming world maps from a set of maps sheets in SXF format, the ability has been added to transfer sheets by longitude on +/-360 degrees. It allows to duplicate the columns of sheets in the western and\or eastern hemisphere for expansion of dimensions of work region up to -360/+360 degrees. The recalculation of coordinates and sheet passport will be performed automatically when importing the work region using the DIR file.
    In the task "Classifier Editor" a customization has been added for automatic recoding the semantics of the type "Classifier code (list)" when updating the classifier. This makes it possible to automate the process of replacing the list (a list of values and their codes) and rebuilding a series of objects created on the basis of the replaced semantics. When the user replaces the old classifier in the folder with the map and opens the map, objects will be automatically recoded with the formation of new semantics that have values from the new values classifiers. Objects will be displayed with new conventional symbols. When replacing it with the old classifier, the conventional symbols will return to their previous view.

    The survey.v5.rsc classifier has been updated, designed for creating land survey, technical plans, inspection reports, documents containing information about land management objects, public and other cadastral maps, drawings, as well as for reproduction of information contained in cadastral plans of territories and cadastral extracts of real estate objects. In the classifier there is expanded the list of objects to which the "Floor type" semantics (code 1119) has been added, necessary for preparing technical plans on creation, formation of objects of real estate, parts of real estate objects, as well as technical plans for changing information about real estate objects and their parts.

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

  • 08.01.2021 In GIS WebServer AGRO the tools of editing a map of agricultural land and conducting an agrarian database have been expanded
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebServer AGRO version 3.0.1 has been developed. In the program the new version of the map editor has been implemented. The new editor provides a wide range of functions and tools for editing the metrics and semantics of objects on the map of agricultural land and objects of an infrastructure. In this case, the data can be represented both as a file of a digital map and as a table in the spatial database.
    The editor user interface is displayed in a separate window for a better overview of the map. It allows you to create new, modify existing map objects, perform actions on a group of objects. Operations are performed in a web browser and the result is uploaded to the server. Use the "View" panel to assign or change an object type. The object type can be set without interrupting the current editing operation. To do this, just select the appropriate icon in the "View" panel. Images of objects views are displayed as a legend (tree) or as a layout of objects (table).
    For fast creation of objects the editor uses templates of objects. Templates of objects - the graphic list of often used types of map objects. When a template is selected, the editor automatically switches to the mode of creating an object of the specified type. The editor informs the user about the actions being performed: changing the type of an object, deleting, changing attributes and other operations on objects. The information is recorded into the map event log, which can be viewed.
    The editor implements support for graphic objects, without selecting a conventional symbol from the map classifier file. Ability has been added to create an arbitrary visual representation of geographic objects. Users can define the parameters of the appearance of lines and areas: color, transparency, thickness, line type, select hatching, fonts and their design for text. The customized visual representation of the object is saved as a style and can be used repeatedly.
    In the new version of GIS WebServer AGRO, the user and administrator interface of the application has been updated. The new tools have been added, allowing to minimise and change the interface of the main map window. There is implemented the ability to display map controls in the side panel, which is located to the left or to right of the map and provides a convenient interface for managing the toolbox.
    The structure and interface of the administration module has been changed. In the module the possibility of conducting projects was added. Projects in GIS WebServer AGRO are created automatically and linked directly to agricultural enterprises described in the agrarian database, customized by means of "Panorama AGRO".
    GIS WebServer AGRO uses the GIS WebService SE cartographical service as a source of spatial data. Synchronization of cartographic information described in the "Panorama AGRO" database and information published on GIS WebService SE is carried out automatically. In the new version of GIS WebServer AGRO, the visualization of the map has been updated, drawing was accelerated and the layout of wms layers has been improved.
    For collective work with data, digital maps of farmland and enterprise infrastructure are placed on the GIS Server. Its use allows you to synchronize the work of the desktop "Panorama AGRO", web applications and mobile clients. Desktop applications such as GIS "Panorama", "Workstation of agronomist" and others can be connected to the server. It allows the mobile clients working through web to process the same data together with desktop clients.
    You can get acquainted with an example of work of GIS WebServer AGRO on the page of the demo project "Agroportal". The new version of the program is available on the website in the Download section.

  • 06.01.2021 GIS "Operator" simplifies preparation of command-staff documents and work with volumetric terrain models
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Operator" version 13.6.0 has been developed. In the new version the tools of preparing and printing the command-staff documents have been improved. In the task "Map Editor", the composition of the "Graphic Objects" panel has been expanded: modes have been added for controlling the color, scale, transparency of a conventional symbol of the object selected on the map. In the application task "Report editor" the possibility has been implemented for automated formation of a set of map reports in jpg format of specified permissions in accordance with a prepared list. It simplifies embedding of reports into various documents and their updating. In "Map print" dialog the ability has been added to limit the display area of the map by a specified boundary (for example, the administrative boundary of the territory). In this case, you can set the degree of transparency of the map display outside the borders of the main contour of the object from 0 (source image) to 100% (completely filled). This mode is called through the context menu in the "Map print" dialog by pressing the "Select area by object" button. When saving and opening packed projects of maps in MPT\MPTZ format, the currently specified displaying composition for each project map is taken into account. This allows you to form projects of different composition of layers, scale, color design from one set of maps for use in the form of insets in various reports.
    When forming world maps from a set of maps sheets of SXF format, the ability has been added to transfer sheets in longitude by +/- 360 degrees. This allows to duplicate the columns of sheets in the western and/or eastern hemisphere to expand the size of the work region up to -360/+ 360degrees. The recalculation of coordinates and sheet passport will be performed automatically when importing the work region using the DIR file.
    The display of elevations matrixes has been improved: the color of the coverage point is calculated based on 16 adjacent heights using the bicubic interpolation method. The new method makes it possible to smooth the discreteness of the display of the matrix elements and the light-shadow mask (hillshade) of the relief, as well as to crop the matrix image by the frame with pixel accuracy.

    In the new version, the tools for viewing and editing tables of attributes of spatial databases have been expanded. Modes are added: select/cancel linked objects, show records for selected objects, show information about a map object for the current record. In dialog the tools for convenient viewing the table with a large amount of data are added: customization of the order of displaying columns, change of their width, setting the visibility status of columns. GIS "Operator" provides direct display and editing of arbitrary spatial databases in cartographic conventional symbols, including those created by other GIS, without additional third-party modules based on direct interaction with PostgreSQL and Oracle DBMS through SQL queries.

    In the task "Navigator 3D" new types of displaying surfaces, reliefs, objects have been added. The surface can be in the type of: a map with a customizable display composition, a smoothed matrix, a background, or be absent. The relief can be full, nodular, skeleton or transparent. Objects can have a three-dimensional view according to the classifier and displayed as full or skeleton models, or have no assigned three-dimensional model and are displayed as a default view, built by the object's metric. Composition of the display of 3D-objects can also be customized for all maps through the "Composition of the display" on the main toolbar of the "Navigator 3D" task. A variety of settings for displaying all elements of a three-dimensional terrain model allows the user to customize it for execution of specific tasks. For example, a transparent relief allows you to view underground objects: buildings elements, communications and others. Nodular and skeleton view of a relief make it possible to see the details of its construction. Skeleton type of objects helps to estimate their relative positioning. The interface of the dialog for importing 3D models into the database of three-dimensional tiles DB3D has been updated.

    The emercom.v2.rsc classifier has been updated, designed to create digital maps of emergency situations. For accounting objects under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Emergencies, and highlighting these objects with special conventional symbols, the following objects have been added: "Label of an object under the jurisdiction of EMERCOM", "Label of an object under the jurisdiction of the EMERCOM (simplified)", "Building under the jurisdiction of the EMERCOM".
