  • 25.01.2023 Training material has been prepared on the possibilities of comparing maps in GIS "Panorama"
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a video tutorial on updating the metric and attribute data of a map using the task "Map comparison" in GIS "Panorama". This task is designed to control vector maps, dispatching updates of digital data about the area by employees when performing field work or processing data from remote sensing of the Earth.
    The video tutorial clearly demonstrates the issuance and acceptance of the work map (a fragment of the base map) for the update territory. This feature permits to perform parallel tasks to update map data. For example, one operator can update the address base. The second one can update the power grid facilities. The third one can update the gas facilities. When accepting data, there are checked the modified data of the working map and the current state of the base map. After all the necessary checks, the result of the work is placed on the base map. The data are updated on the map.
    The task is performed in two stages:
    - at the first stage of work, a fragment of the digital map is selected and the standard of the issued fragment is memorized;
    - at the second stage, the map is accepted from the operator. The table of changes in the working map is formed in comparison with the standard and the current state of the base map. The table contains records about changing the composition of objects, updating the metrics and semantics of objects.
    Before performing the second stage, accepting the processed data for the issued map fragment, it is recommended to check the quality of the plotted information using the task "Vector map quality control".
    It is possible to be acquainted with the training materials in the section "Video tutorials".

  • 11.01.2023 Workstation of urban planner" uses the current reference information of Rosreestr to keep records of land plots
    KB "Panorama" has developed "Workstation of urban planner" version 14.5.2. In the new version, changes have been made to the reference database of the complex in accordance with the classifier of types for permitted use of land plots, approved by order No. 246 the Federal Service of State Registration, Cadastre and Cartography dated June 23, 2022. The program has added directories "Type of the land use by order" and "Semantics of urban planning regulations". For keeping records of land plots, the modes "Updating semantics on the map", "Automatic loading of documents" and "Automatic linking of the accounting object with the land plot" have been improved. For capital construction objects, a new report "User document" has been added. The functions and mechanisms of maintaining urban planning regulations have been optimized in the database. The list of formalized parameters for the territory development has been expanded. The new reference book "Type of the land use by order" is synchronized with the semantics of the same name 1311 of the classifier survey.rsc and the corresponding attribute is added to the account of the land plot.
    The formation and maintenance for the base of urban planning regulations established by the rules of land use and development is carried out synchronously with the registers of land plots, capital construction objects and other accounting objects. Spatial and logical connections are established between the registers of the complex, all objects are linked to the map. To facilitate the filling of information in the mode "Add with copy", new attributes for copying have been added. When the conditions for deleting records are met, it is possible to delete several selected records.To create the urban planning plan for the land plot based on the data stored in the database, a new reference book "Semantics of urban planning regulations" has been introduced, which implements the establishment of correspondence between the parameters of the development for the territory and the semantics of the objects for the territorial zoning map. The parameters of urban planning regulations have been supplemented with: building density coefficient; the distance from the sites with containers to the windows of residential buildings, the boundaries of children's plots, medical institutions, recreation places; the minimum area of the land plot for engineering facilities and auxiliary engineering facilities.
    The modes "Updating semantics on the map" and "Automatic linking of the accounting object with the land plot" have been improved. Additional information about errors and digital map objects has been added to the process execution protocol. The mode "Automatic loading of the land plot documents" has been completely updated. The mode provides for automatic creation of documents based on files of digital copies of the land plot documents. The created documents are registered in the information system and can be used in the document flow of the software package. The mode is implemented both for one site and for several ones in the form of document streaming download.
    From the information about the capital construction object stored in the database, according to the established information and logical links with the registers of the complex and the digital map, it is possible to generate a new report "User document". For this report, the user needs to generate dot format template and match the attribute of the accounting object and the tag in the document template.

  • 07.01.2023 Tools for preparing operational maps of the area have been expanded in GIS "Operator" SE for OS "Astra Linux Special Edition", OS "Alt 8 SP" and RED OS.
    KB "Panorama" developed GIS "Operator" version 14.2.4 for OS "Astra Linux Special Edition" (release "Smolensk"), OS "Alt 8 SP" (architecture x86-64) and RED OS. The new version implements the task of generating nomenclature sheets of topographic maps for the specified area, adds a new type of software product licensing over the network, improves the quality of displaying graphic symbols on the map, improves the display of sea charts, and adds new tools for specifying the dimensions of the created map objects. The possibilities of obtaining cartographic data have been improved for preparation of the report documents. The interface has been improved for managing the selection of open digital maps.
    The new task "Formation of map sheets by coordinates" is designed to create a topographic area of work according to the specified dimensions and sheet nomenclature. The user can set the boundaries of the area to be created by entering values in degrees or meters in the dialog interface. If there is an open map, it is possible to use additionally an arbitrary map object, fragment or dimensions of the entire map as initial data. The list of nomenclature sheets is formed in accordance with the generally accepted rules for designating a map sheet. The multi-sheet map obtained as a result of the task can later be used as input data for other tasks (for example, cutting a document into sheets to speed up the display of a large amount of data). For the convenience of the user, the list of selected items can be exported to a text file and used as input data in the next session of working with the task.
    The type of software product licensing "Floating hardware license (USB-key)" has been added, which lets to dynamically configure a set of computers on which the work with GIS "Operator" will be performed. When using this type of licensing, USB security key is connected to only one workstation on which the license server is installed. At local workstations with GIS "Operator", no additional physical means are required to activate the product, it is enough just to provide network access to the license server and to perform a few simple steps to configure the program. For convenience to control the set of software products to which the user has access, the license type setup dialog provides the interface for viewing license data: license availability, license and technical support expiration dates, operating system type, and a list of available software products.
    The mode for creating the object with the selected drawing method "Horizontal rectangle" has been improved. When performing the interactive selection of a rectangle on the map through the context menu of the mode, it is possible to call the dialog for setting the rectangle size by specifying numerical values for the width, height and area of the selected area. The lengths of the sides for the rectangle can be set in meters or kilometers on the ground, or in millimeters on the map. The area can be specified in square meters, square kilometers or hectares on the ground, or in square millimeters on the map. It is supported to specify the dimensions of the rectangle to create a new map object, taking into account the standard dimensions of the page printed on the device by selecting from the page format list. It is added the display of the list for open maps in the main menu in the section "Window". The list of open maps in the main menu provides more flexible settings for selecting the current active map when several digital maps are open at the same time. The menu clearly shows the names of the maps loaded into the program. In the list of maps, the currently installed active map is marked. Clicking on another item in the list of open maps switches the active map displayed on the screen.
    It has been improved he quality of displaying graphical symbols on the map and in the symbol preview windows of the properties dialogs of the selected map object and Classifier Editor. For graphic characters, the image of which is stored in files, the anti-aliasing algorithm is applied during display, which lets to get rid of "pixeling" effect when the character size is changed in the classifier. Using the anti-aliasing, when displaying graphic symbols, it expands the user's options for customizing the type of symbols in the classifier and it improves the visibility of the map when displayed on the screen.
    It is improved displaying of sea charts according to the standard S52. The implementation of the procedures has been refined: Depval - generation of the depth values based on attribute values for underwater obstacles, taking into account underlying objects, Udwhaz - requesting the code of the displayed symbol and display flag, taking into account the depth of the obstacle or requesting the code of an isolated underwater hazard with the depth less than the safety contour, Wrecks - displaying the remains of a shipwreck.
    It is improved options for saving digital map data in vector format PDF. Vector map data is saved to a file PDF along with rasters and DEMs loaded into them. Setting the display of map layers using the parameter "Above map" lets to control the movement of the required layers to the fore both when the map is rendered on the screen, and when generating a saved image for the vector file PDF. Setting the selection of a fragment for the displayed area gives the opportunity to display an image of the entire work area or a map fragment limited by the rectangular area, a selected map object, or the size of the current map window displayed on the screen.
    The vector format PDF preserves the quality of the map image at any set display scale, which expands the user's ability to choose the scale of the generated file PDF. The mode of saving the map to vector format PDF can be used when preparing reporting documents.
