  • 14.01.2022 Map of values of magnetic declination onto World territory has been prepared
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" prepared and posted on the site a map of values of magnetic declination onto the World territory, formed according to the data of the National Center for Environmental Information (NOAA). The initial data about magnetic declination onto the World territory were obtained from the NOAA website in the form of tables of values of magnetic declination (CSV format) at height 500m with step of 0.1 degrees as of 12/23/2021. Copyright information for the original data of magnetic declination is available here.

    The map was prepared using the GIS "Panorama" in the form of isogons, formed according to a previously prepared matrix of magnetic declination's values with a step of 1 km using the aeronautical classifier. The map can be used for preparing the documents of aeronautical information and solving the navigation problems.

    Free maps are available for download on the "Digital maps" page.

  • 09.01.2022 GIS Server accelerates editing and display of large spatial databases
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS Server version 10.2 has been developed for the operating systems Astra Linux SE, OS Alt 8 SP, Ubuntu 18.04, CentOS 8, CentOS 7 and MS Windows. The new version of the program accelerates the synchronization of the state of spatial databases when they are updated on the server and their cartographic representation on clients when processing tens of millions of records with active image updating. The algorithms for caching the database on the server and the client have been improved, the amount of data transferred between the server and the client has been optimized when synchronizing the data state.

    The GIS Server supports working with spatial databases controlled by PostgreSQL, Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server, which 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" for their representation in the form of vector maps in the specified conventional symbols, editing the coordinates and attributes of objects, solving applied problems.
    GIS Server provides multi-level connection of servers among themselves for distributed storage and processing of spatial data with automatic replication, backup and data protection. Such architecture reduces the load on the data transmission network tenfold, accelerates access to data and increases operational reliability.

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

  • 05.01.2022 GIS WebService SE increases speed of work with large volumes of spatial data in information systems of federal, regional and municipal purposes
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebService SE version 14.2.5 has been developed. In the new version a search and display of spatial data is accelerated. Information systems of various levels and purposes use large volumes of geodata. For fast display of spatial data and search in them the modern methods of processing are required. GIS WebService SE includes most of the automated technologies for working with Big Data. Using intelligent technologies, the service allows in the shortest possible time to process and provide access to databases, the speed of information change in which reaches hundreds of thousands of transactions per second.

    In the program the list of supported requests for working with spatial data has been expanded. Applications using GIS WebService SE, such as GIS WebServer SE, Databank, GIS WebToolkit SE and others, have received a number of new possibilities for processing Big Data. A new request to clear empty tiles or tiles of a certain size has been added. This request is necessary if third-party geoportals (when republishing data through the service) give empty pictures instead of error messages. The service can automatically understand that the received tile is empty and not save it in the cache or give an error. The request of building a route with a stop at several points has been added. On request it is possible to receive the description of a route with all points of turn and movement time on sections. A request of crossing of a point object with other objects was implemented. The request of loading a file from document repository on the GIS Server has been added. Some of the requests have been moved to the class that are executed in time. New requests have been added to get information about the percentage of completion of the operation. A request for converting point coordinates from one system into another one and a request for converting a set of points by a JSON file have been implemented. Request - an attachment of an arbitrary file to the object was added. Pictures for the gallery, video files, documents and other data can be used as information. They can be loaded both locally and on the GIS Server. Function of building a profile of a relief by object from a map or by an arbitrary object in request has been added.

    The service administrator has been improved. Ability has been added to update the cache of several layers simultaneously. The reliability of work with data located remotely on the GIS Server, in a database or in the Databank is increased.

    Search of objects in a point is improved - the data is returned faster and the answer does not capture objects which are not visible or are close to poll point. There is improved end-to-end search in complex queries when limiting the output of the number of objects. The request of a file from semantics of object automatically determines the location of the data locally or on the GIS Server and returns the data. When searching, the ability to display semantics codes and display the semantics of type the link to a file has been added.

    A new protocol on interacting with the service in JSON format has been added. Almost all requests and data for a service can be sent in JSON or XML-RPC format. Support for transactions in the GeoJSON format has been implemented.

    Output of messages into a file of service's errors is improved. There are added messages describing the error and messages with the output of the request, responsible for this error. Diagnostic messages are expanded at loading data into the Databank. The file of statistics of service's work is created for each start of service, allowing to accumulate the information for the further analysis.

    Possibilities have been expanded when working with the Databank. There are added the requests for exporting geo-covers from the Databank, requests for control of input datasets by a requirements template, requests for summarizing map sheets. Work with databases and processing of their information are accelerated.

    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 the documentation are posted on the website in the Download section.

  • 02.01.2022 GIS Panorama Mini for Astra Linux SE provides viewing of spatial information on devices with high pixel density
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS Panorama Mini version 14.0.0 for OS Astra Linux SE (Releases "Smolensk" and "Oryol") has been developed. In the new version the user interface of the program used in operating systems with customizing high density of displaying the image on the screen has been improved. It expands a range of application of software product on devices with screens of the reduced size - portable laptops, specialised tablets and other similar devices. In the program interface of dialogs the possibilities provided by the layout system of the elements of the visual design environment are as much as possible used, which allows you to get a dialog design adapted to the display parameters in accordance with the settings of the operating system. The new version of the program is compatible with OS Astra Linux SE (release "Smolensk") versions 1.6 and 1.7.

    The initial opening and display of large sets of vector maps and spatial databases containing several million objects and more, has been accelerated. Construction of the objects tree when opening the datasets has been accelerated.

    Possibilities of work with text and hypertext documents have been expanded due to addition of support of documents in PDF format. The user can add a set of PDF documents to the map, for example, to use them as an auxiliary material during work. When the size of the window of the added document is changed, its scale will change depending on the current scale of the map. You can customize the display of the desired page of the PDF document on a user document. For the convenience of customization, there is a preview window for the added documents.
    Display of clusters used for grouping point conventional symbols on a map has been improved. Into the cluster description the property "Display the first character in the cluster" has been added. When it is set, in the position of the cluster sign the first object in the cluster will be displayed first, and then the cluster sign. In this case, the cluster sign 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.
    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.
    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.
    Dialog of creating a matrix of heights according to data of a digital map has been improved. In dialog the possibility has been added for a choice of nomenclature sheets of a map and the user layers by which building a matrix of heights will be carried out. This possibility provides the user with additional flexibility in setting the parameters for creating matrixes of heights for regions of work, consisting of a large number of nomenclature maps sheets. The choice of sheets is performed by selection directly in the list of names of nomenclature sheets which will participate in processing. By means of special control buttons it is possible to select all sheets in the list at once, reset selection of all sheets, or invert the selection of sheets.
    The interface of the dialog for importing graphic files into RSW format has been modernized at using files of a binding. The user selects the possibility of using data from the binding's file by setting the appropriate checkbox in the dialog. The program carries out search of a binding's file by coincidence of its name with raster file name. If a single file of binding is found in a search result, data from this file is automatically loaded. If there are several binding files of the same name in different formats, then the choice of the file used when loading graphic data is provided to the user.
    GIS Panorama Mini is the universal geoinformation system intended for a collecting the spatial data, a conducting the spatial database, creation and updating of digital maps and plans, creation of information systems of various purposes. The program implements the following main functions: import and viewing of vector maps, raster data, matrixes of heights, matrixes of qualities, geological matrixes of layers, TIN-models, laser scanning data, user maps and work regions; creation of new maps with automatic filling of parameters using the EPSG code or from the list of parameters in XML format; export of maps to SXF, DXF, OGC GML formats; multi-user work with data with access control through a connection to the GIS Server; combining and editing vector maps of different projections in one document; support for popular geoportals, which allows displaying user maps over images received from sites; printing to various output devices with customization of print parameters.
