  • 20.02.2024 Bank of spatial data has been supplemented with a map of the Republic of Rwanda
    Geoportal "Bank of spatial data" has been supplemented with a map of the Republic of Rwanda, formed according to OpenStreetMap data. 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".

  • 19.02.2024 In the "Workstation of cadastral engineer" the tools of maintaining information on the accuracy of cadastral measurements have been improved
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of cadastral engineer" version 15.1.3 has been developed. The program has updated algorithms and methods for using information on the accuracy of cadastral measurements, taking into account the requirements of the order of the Federal Service for State Registration, Cadastre and Cartography dated October 23, 2020 No. P/0393. The procedure for maintaining the specified information in the cadastral object model has been clarified.
    The dialog "Editing attributes of a cadastral object" provides input and editing of information about the method of determining coordinates, the formula used for calculating the mean square error in determining the coordinates of a characteristic point, the value of the SKP of determining coordinates (Mt) and the formula used for calculating the maximum error in determining the area of a cadastral object (Mp). For land plots, processing of the semantics "Permitted use according to the regulatory act (text description) has been added. Separate input of semantic values "Account Boundary Number" and "Individual designation (kind, type, number, index) a territorial zone" have been implemented.
    The "Land survey plan" mode has been updated in terms of using information about the accuracy of cadastral measurements from the cadastral object model, which includes polygons describing the boundaries of the land plot and point objects - characteristic points of the boundaries. When generating a test report and an XML file for a land survey plan, a variable selection of data was implemented when filling out information about the accuracy indicators for determining coordinates and area. To fill the value Mt of characteristic points, the values of semantics and program settings are used according to the following algorithm. If there is a point sign on the map, it is asked for the value of the semantics "RMS of point position". Otherwise, value of semantics "RMS of point position" of the land plot is requested. If both conditions are not met, then the value from the options of the "Cadastral documents" module is used to fill in Mt. To fill in the value of the formula used for calculating the RMS of determining the coordinates of a characteristic point, the value of the semantics "Formula for calculating Mt" of the land plot is requested. If there is no semantics, then the value from the settings of the "Cadastral Documents" module is used to fill out the formula. To fill in the Mp value, the program performs a calculation using the formula specified in the options of the "Cadastral Documents" module. Received value Mp is inserted into the report and XML file. When calculating Mp, the value of the standard value Mp used in the calculations is requested from the semantics of the "RMS of point position" of the land plot. If semantics is not present, then the value from module options "Cadastral documents" is taken. To fill in the value of the formula used for calculating the maximum error in determining the area of a cadastral object, the value of the semantics "Formula for calculating the area" of the land plot is requested. If there is no semantics, then the value from the settings of the "Cadastral Documents" module is used to fill out the formula. The insert of values of attributes GeopointOpred and Formula has been added when forming the Ordinate and NewOrdinate elements in an XML file. Reading of the semantics "Permitted use according to a regulatory act (text description)" has been added to fill in the PermittedUseText element in the PermittedUsesOther node of the XML-file of the land survey plan version 9. Errors have been corrected when changing document information about the permitted use of land and land category. The recording of unnecessary elements OKATO, KLADR, OKTMO into the XML file has been eliminated. Recording into the XML file of information about the document on establishing an address in the Address element has been corrected.
    In the "Technical plan" dialog, a field has been added for entering the error in determining the area of a cadastral object (Mp). Determination of the area of a building, structure, premises or parking space is carried out during cadastral measurements based on the internal dimensions of the premises as the sum of the areas of the simplest geometric figures. The number of figures and the breakdown order are established by the cadastral engineer. The resulting area value is saved in the semantics "Area according to documents" (AREADOC) of the real estate object and is displayed in the dialog. The AREADOC and Mp values are used when generating a text report and an XML technical plan file. A recording has been added into the XML file of object coordinates and point numbers if there are no point signs on the map - characteristic points. The position "Date" has been added in the table of geodetic points when saving in XML. When filling out the XML file of the GeopointOpred element (Method for determining coordinates), the ability of initialization of value by default has been added if there are no point symbols on the map - characteristic points. In this case, the value is taken from the semantics of the cadastral object.
    In the "Correction of registry errors" mode, the process of generating a text report is made cross-platform using the DOCX format. Recording information about deleted points into the report has been corrected. A filter has been set for adding graphic files in PDF and JPG formats; these files can be used when inserting images into the Applications section.
    The new version of the program is available for download in the Download section.

  • 16.02.2024 In the application development kit for GIS "Panorama" 15 the source texts of the task of building three-dimensional models have been published
    Specialists from KB "Panorama" have updated the application development kit for GIS "Panorama" 15. In the new version the source texts of the task "Navigator 3D" from the applications of GIS "Panorama" have been added. "Navigator 3D" is used for dynamic construction, display and viewing of three-dimensional terrain models (three-dimensional maps) based on various types of data used in the GIS "Panorama", and also contains tools for working with a three-dimensional map and functions for importing models.
    The source texts of the task consist of the texts of two libraries projects: library of the map3dex task core (engine) and library of the map3d window interface. On the basis of given texts it is possible to develop your own task in different versions. For example, to expand the functionality of an existing interface in the map3d library, to build your own task for working with a three-dimensional map using the API functions of the map3dex library, or to change and modify the contents of the core.
    To build a three-dimensional terrain model, the following can be used: a vector map, a matrix of heights, a triangulation relief model (TIN model), a map classifier, a library of three-dimensional images of objects, the digital photographs of the terrain and digital photographs of terrain objects. The composition of the source data can be different and depends on what type of model needs to be obtained.
    To build a three-dimensional model taking into account the objects of a vector two-dimensional map, a library of three-dimensional images of various types of these objects is used, which is added into the classifier of any map. API functions make it possible to programmatically form parameters for typified three-dimensional models of user objects. You can create your own views in the library of 3D images in the "Classifier Editor" task.
    The task has wide functionality for customizing the display of a three-dimensional model: display with or without relief, in full or skeleton form, with real lighting depending on the selected date, time and location, or with a spotlight, with map objects, and others. The possibilities for controlling the three-dimensional map are also different - you can move the model using the keyboard or mouse, change the speed of movement and turn, observation mode, display projection of the model and other actions.
    Working with a three-dimensional map provides: taking measurements; creating and editing 3D map objects; creating and editing a three-dimensional view of map classifier objects; control of the display composition of superficial and three-dimensional objects; creating and playing scenarios of moving objects; creating trajectories of camera movement along the model and playing back camera movement along the model; placing virtual video cameras and displaying images from them in additional video camera windows; saving terrain model images from the main window and video camera windows in JPG, PNG, BMP and AVI formats; saving a three-dimensional map into a database in the form of a pyramid of three-dimensional tiles in the DB3D format.
    Import of third-party 3D models allows you to load models in DAE, OBJ, TLS, OC3, MTD formats into the database of 3D models of the DB3D format and display them on a 3D map. A more complete description of the "3D Navigator" task is presented in the documentation.
    The new version of the kit is available for download on the Download page.

  • 15.02.2024 Bank of spatial data has been supplemented with a map of the Democratic Republic of the Congo
    Geoportal "Bank of spatial data" has been supplemented with a map of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, formed according to OpenStreetMap data. 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".

  • 14.02.2024 Training video material on the creation and use of conventional symbols visible on a given scale has been prepared
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a video lesson of formation of a sign, visible on a given scale, using the "Classifier Editor" in the GIS "Panorama", "Workstation of cadastral engineer", "Workstation of of agronomist" and other software products of KB "Panorama". To display multiscale signs, a programmable sign from the shape.iml library is used. A sign is formed using a combination of primitives and the assignment of borders of sign display. By means of primitives it is possible to form any type of a sign: linear, polygon, point.
    Programmable signs allow you to create a multiscale map. Multiscale maps are dynamic maps that display data differently at different scale ranges. They differ from static maps, which are designed to be viewed and displayed at one scale. You can zoom in and zoom out the map, but the multiscale maps are created in a way that ensures visual integrity and effectively communicates information to the user. Multiscale maps are the most efficient way to display data virtually continuously in various scales.
    You can view the training materials in the "Video lessons" section.

  • 12.02.2024 In GIS "Panorama" version 15 the tools for ensuring the topological correctness of digital terrain models have been added
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" version 15.1.3 has been developed. In the new version the tools of creating and updating digital topographical and special maps have been updated, the mechanism of autosave of backup copies of maps has been added when editing, tools for control of quality and correction of vector maps, execution of topological requests have been supplemented. A model of a breakthrough wave during the destruction of a hydraulic structure has been developed, 3D modeling tools have been updated, and tools for preparing cadastral documents, land-survey and technical plans have been improved.
    The "Map Editor" task has been improved. In the "Create a copy of object" and "Moving object" modes, the binding of objects has been improved when moving with the binding of the selected object node to the target node of an arbitrary map object ("K" mode) or to a regular grid node ("N" mode). The new implementation of the "N" mode allows you to snap objects to grid nodes that were previously unbound to grid nodes. To visually control the binding of an object to grid nodes, in the main menu you must select: View - Grid view. The ability to save a list of objects selected by filter has been added into the "View map control log" dialog. The received list is available for use in dialogs "Lists of objects" and "Map Legend" ("General Data List" tab). Lists of objects are saved with indicating the date and time. Tools for working with the list allow you to highlight objects on the map, select and copy them onto a separate map, as well as perform a sequential search for list objects on the map and process them in groups.
    The "Splitting objects by lists" mode has been added to the "Cut and combine" group of modes. The mode is intended for cutting area objects into parts along the contours of reference objects. Areal, linear closed and open objects can be used as reference objects. When cutting multipolygons, the cut parts of objects are recorded as simple areal objects. By default, the metric of reference objects is matched with editable ones: intersection points are inserted into reference objects. If there is no need to edit the reference object metrics, reference object matching can be disabled. The procedure for using the mode when solving the problem of forming forest blocks is given on the "Splitting objects by lists" page
    The "Auto-wrap signature lines" mode has been added to the "Editing a label" mode group, designed to perform interactive formatting of multi-line signatures texts on a map when preparing maps for publication or for drawing up reports. When changing the size of the signature metric by moving its second point, the signature text is automatically split into lines, which ensures that the overall text width corresponds to the specified size.
    For desktop versions a mechanism of autosave of full copy of the map during editing has been implemented. In order for locally placed maps (on the user’s computer) to be automatically saved when editing, it is necessary in the Options/Autosave menu, to add the map into the list of maps for autosaving and to set the frequency of creating copies: after how many hours in the presence of any changes or after how many total changes since the creation of the previous copy. Copies are created in that local or network folder (storage) that the user specifies. For each map, a subdirectory is created with the map name and GUID. If a GUID has not been set in the map, it will be filled in automatically. Inside this subdirectory, directories are created with the year number, the current date and the copy number for the current date. No more than a specified number of copies can be saved per day. If conditions arise for creating new copies when there is already a maximum specified number, then intermediate copies are deleted, which are closer in creation time to neighboring copies. The remaining copies are renumbered sequentially. When you copy a map, all data files and service files are saved. A record is added into the copy creation protocol with the time of copy creation, the path to the source map, and the path to the created copy.
    The task "Making rule" (borders of nomenclature sheets) on the map has been improved. A mode for forming sheet frames based on objects previously selected on the map has been added to the list of modes for selecting a construction area. The mode of constructing by selected objects is convenient in cases where the objects of interest are scattered across the map.
    Task "Lists of objects" has been improved. In dialog the elements of editing lists of objects and the button for execution of operations over lists are placed on one panel that simplifies the selection and execution of requests. Modes have been added: Enable display of custom styles, Cutting objects by lists and Search of intersections. Ability has been added to edit the list name in the object list tree. Information about the composition of the list has been expanded: it is presented in the form of a map tree with a description of the total and used number of objects, layers, localizations, semantics, measurements and formulas. "Map Legend" task has been improved. On the General data list tab, functionality for working with lists of objects has been expanded. Modes have been added: Cutting objects by lists and Search of intersections. To organize collective work, the ability to save, delete and update lists of objects on the GIS Server has been added if the main map is opened from the GIS Server.
    The task "Correction of object metrics", which is part of the tasks group "Check and correction of data", has been improved. The "Cut the self-intersections (loops)" mode has been added into the "Topology" mode group. The mode performs dissection of linear objects in places of self-intersections and self-junctions with the creation of new objects. The algorithm for executing the "Merge linear objects with control of direction and semantics" mode from the "Topogogy" group of modes has been improved. It is now possible to specify the maximum rotation angle of merged objects at the merging location, beyond which merging will not occur. In addition, in the "Forks" places the program selects the most straight direction from the available ones for merging.
    The task "Check of vector map quality" has been improved. An additional parameter "Perform with maximum precision" has been added into the parameters of the topology control type the "Objects mismatch check". When this parameter is enabled, messages about mismatch of points less than 1 micrometer on the ground are recorded into the control protocol. When performing the control in the "Edit" mode, the discrepancies of the points less than the editable tolerance are corrected automatically.
    The program of correction of object metrics has been improved: the number of iterations has been reduced when correcting linear contours containing errors in the adjacency of contour segments; the degeneration of linear contours with a small number of points containing errors of the "peaks" type has been excluded. The object metrics correction program is used to automatically correct errors in the metrics of areal and linear objects. The task is called in the main menu: Tools - Map processing by scenario - Correction of object metrics.
    The "Complex of hydrological tasks" has been improved. A new mode "Modeling a breakthrough wave during the destruction of a hydraulic structure" has been added to the Reservoir mode group. The mode is intended for calculating the propagation of a breakthrough wave in the event of the destruction of a dam. The result of the program is: a graph of the advance of a breakthrough wave, a matrix of flooding of territories, a map of flooding of territories. When creating the program, methods developed by specialists from the Military training and research center of the Ground forces were used.
    In the "Navigator 3D" task, the "Flying" and "Move by object" modes have been updated. Ability has been added to change the speed of movement by model during movement using the keyboard keys: "-" deceleration, "+" acceleration. After changing, the speed is saved for subsequent movement on the model in manual mode using the keyboard, during the next use of the specified modes and for the next sessions of working with the task. Previously, the speed of movement on the terrain model was changed only in the "Options" dialog, "Motion" tab, which was less convenient.
    Import from format DXF has been improved. There is added a support for different code pages specified in the DXF file in the DWGCODEPAGE field for correct processing of labels on the map.
    "Geodesy editor" task has been improved. The dialog "Formation of title of name and area" has been updated. The "Sign area and object name" dialog from the "Preparation of diagrams and drawings" panel has been improved. To select the semantics used as the object name, call the standard "Semantics choice" dialog. The "Creating object schema" mode has been improved, errors in setting default values have been corrected, and the process of constructing a schema has been accelerated.
    The task "Cadastral documents" has been improved. In the dialog "Editing the semantics of cadastral objects" for land plots, processing of the semantics "Permitted use according to a regulatory act (text description)" has been added. Separate input of semantic values "Border registration number" and "Individual designation (kind, type, number, index) of a territorial zone" has been implemented. In the "Correction of registry error" mode, the process of forming a text report is made cross-platform using the DOCX format. Recording of information about deleted points in the report has been corrected. A filter has been installed for adding graphic files in PDF and JPG formats and using these files when inserting images into the Applications section.
    In the "Land Survey Plan version 9" mode, in the "XML document" section in the "XSD schema placement" field, the default path for placing the MP_v09.xsd schema has been changed from the MP_v09 folder onto the MP_v09_R03-1_project folder. There is added a reading of the semantics "Permitted use according to the regulatory act (text description)" to fill the PermittedUseText element in the PermittedUsesOther node of the XML-file of the Land Survey Plan version 9. Writing into the XML-file of the information about the document about setting the address in the Address node has been corrected. When generating a test report and XML file of the Land Survey Plan version 9, an algorithm was implemented that uses a variable selection of data when filling out information about the mean square error in determining the coordinates of characteristic points (Mt) and the maximum error in determining the area of a land plot (dP). Information about the SKP for determining the coordinates of a characteristic point includes the following items: the method for determining the coordinates of a point (Method), the formula for calculating the SKP of a point (Formula_Mt) and the value of the SKP for determining the coordinates of a point (DeltaGeopoint). Information on the maximum error in determining the area of a land plot includes the following items: the formula for calculating the error in determining the area (Formula_dP), the normative SKP for determining the coordinates of characteristic points (Mtnorm) and the value of the maximum error in determining the area of a land plot (dP). When generating a report or XML file, the program does not calculate the Mt value of characteristic points.
    Into the "Technical plan" dialog a field has been added for entering the error in determining the area of a cadastral object and recording the resulting value into the semantics and XML-file of the technical plan. The error in determining the area of real estate objects is not calculated. It is connected with the fact that calculation of the SKP for determining the area is performed by dividing the object into geometrical figures. The number of figures and the order of division are established by the cadastral engineer, and at the time of drawing up the technical plan, this information is not on the map. A recording into the XML file of object coordinates and point numbers has been added if there are no point signs on the map - characteristic points. "Date" position has been added in the table of geodetic points when saving in XML. When filling the XML file of the element "GeopointOpred" - Method for determining coordinates, the ability has been added to initialize it with the default value in the absence on the map of point signs - characteristic points. In this case, the value is taken from the semantics of the cadastral object.
    The new version of the program is available for download on the Download page.

  • 08.02.2024 Complex of preparing documents of aeronautical information ensures the maintenance of a database of airdromes infrastructure in accordance with ICAO requirements
    In KB "Panorama" the Complex of preparing documents of aeronautical information version 8.2.6 under the control of the GIS "Panorama" or GIS "Operator" has been developed. In the new version, the dialogue "Maintaining the runway profile database" has been improved in accordance with the requirements of ICAO Doc 9157 ("Airdrome Design Manual. Part 1. "Runways") and FAP-262. For maintaining the base of the vertical profile of the runway, there are added the additional fields for entering absolute height at a point for storing values in two measurement systems (meters and feet). Input of coordinates of the parking center in the format of degrees, minutes, seconds has been implemented.
    The mode "Interface for formation of marginal (out border) design and maps" mode has been improved. Ability has been added to use graphic objects when designing an approach procedure template to display text regarding the missed approach procedure and warnings (notes). To create graphic objects, a preliminary description in the aeronautical classifier (dfc.rsc) is not required, so it is more convenient to use these objects when creating a template. In the program the list of the corresponding keywords used for filling a template with the information from a database of the Complex has been expanded. The full list of keywords is presented in the document "System programmer's guide".
    The complex of preparing documents of aeronautical information is a set of tools for maintaining an aeronautical data base, a modeling and analyzing the aeronautical situation, generating aeronautical maps and exchanging data with other information systems through export and import in the ARINC 424-19 exchange format and export in the AIXM 5.1 format. The task "Flight procedures design" is used to design the routes of departure, approach and landing and to analyze the safety of flights on them. The task "Assessment of compliance for aerodromes with the requirements FAR" is intended for the analysis of the aerodrome and the aerodrome environs for the suitability for operation and aircraft flights in accordance with the Federal Aviation Regulations.
    The new version of the program, examples of aeronautical information documents, operational documentation, video lessons and presentations are available for download on the Download page.

  • 07.02.2024 On the basis of data from open sources the maps and matrixes of heights of a relief for mobile devices have been formed
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared maps for mobile devices on the basis of data OpenStreetMap and matrix of heights of a relief in MTW format. Maps for mobile devices are formed as multi-sheet maps of MAP format, corresponding to the territory of nomenclature sheets at a scale of 1: 200 000 in CS-42 (blocks), packed in ZIP format. Each map (block) contains 16 sheets corresponding to the territory of nomenclature sheets at a scale of 1: 50 000 in CS-42. The sheet name corresponds to the name of the nomenclature of scale 1: 50 000 in lowercase. The map name includes the name of the corresponding nomenclature of scale 1: 200 000 in the lowercase and the name of the main settlement in map territory.
    The matrix of heights is a digital 3D model of the terrain, has a regular structure and contains elements which values are the heights of the terrain. The name of a matrix of heights includes the name of the corresponding nomenclature of scale 1: 200 000 in the lowercase and the name of the main settlement in map territory. Matrixes of heights of a relief are presented in files with the MTW extension in compressed form.
    Maps of MAP format and matrixes of heights of a relief can be opened simultaneously in any quantity for a covering of necessary territory. On top of background maps, you can create or open thematic layers (user maps) to solve applied tasks. Before use, maps must be unpacked (can be done in the mobile application).
    For work with mobile maps and matrixes of heights it is possible to use the GIS "Panorama Mobile" (an order of use for OS Aurora and for OS Android). Mobile maps and matrixes of heights are available for downloading in the "Digital maps" section.

  • 06.02.2024 Bank of spatial data has been supplemented with a map of the Gabonese Republic
    Geoportal "Bank of spatial data" has been supplemented with a map of the Gabonese Republic, formed according to OpenStreetMap data. 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".

  • 05.02.2024 A training set of maps and a set of parameters for using the specialized software "Automated generalization of topographical maps" have been prepared
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a training set from 36 sheets of scale 1:100 000 converted into 9 sheets of scale 1:200 000 by using the program "Automated generalizations of topographic maps". Specialized software is designed to perform automated mapping of digital topographic maps (DTM) of scales of 1:50 000 - 1:500 000 based on source maps of larger scales. For performing the procedure of generalization from a scale of 1: 100 000 to 1: 200 000 the parameter files have been prepared that can be used for other areas with similar terrain properties. The source set of maps has been led to the 100t05gm.rsc classifier and complies with the rules for the digital description of terrain objects given in the document "Technology of digital topographic maps creating and updating".
    The area of St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region, located on the coast of the Gulf of Finland and at the mouth of the Neva River, was chosen for work. The territory belongs to the Baltic Sea basin and has a dense, developed network of rivers and canals. Dense coniferous and mixed deciduous forests, interspersed with swamps, cover almost 70% of the area.
    The process of converting source data in map format to the final result took 3 working days when carried out step by step. An example of a training kit is packaged into an archive containing data in the folders Source data, Settings files, Result.
    The updated version of the Specialized software accelerates the processing of small reservoirs, which searches for adjacent cover objects (forests, meadows) and unites the removed small reservoirs with adjacent cover objects. The union is performed provided that there is a significant area (contour) of adjacency of the analyzed objects. Customizing the filters of objects processed during formation of a destination map has been simplified. The new mode allows to execute faster and flexible customizing the views of the objects copied onto a derivative map.
    Quality of the title sign of the settlements names has been improved: a new algorithm of selection of the title location carries out search of the place most free from contours.
    An example of a training map project and parameters files for working with the module of the "Automated generalization of topographic maps" is available for download in the Download section. A complete set of data for each stage of the specialized software the "Automated generalization of topographic maps" can be requested by writing a letter to panorama@gisinfo.ru.

  • 02.02.2024 In GIS "Panorama Mobile" the tools of obtaining information about terrain objects have been improved
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama Mobile" version 1.4 for OS Android has been developed. In the new version the possibility for viewing detailed information about objects of vector maps has been added, change of a format of displaying coordinates, restoration of last open document and position have been implemented. The task of connecting geoportals has been improved, and the algorithms for processing and displaying data have been refined.
    The GIS "Panorama Mobile" provides the ability to view detailed information about map objects. The new dialog displays basic information about the map object: the name of the object and layer, the object key in the classifier of conventional symbols, measurement characteristics (perimeter and area), as well as a list of object attributes. When the dialog opens, the display window is centered onto the object, and the object itself is highlighted with an outline. For convenience of positioning, it is possible to enter the sizes of an object into the visible map display area and center the visible map display area onto the center of the object.
    Ability has been added to select a coordinate system and format of representation for displaying a position on the map. Regardless of the type of used map, the user can set the most suitable display parameters from among the popular coordinate systems: CS-42, WGS-84 and PZ-90.11. Rectangular (meters) and geodetic (radians, degrees, degrees/minutes/seconds) units of measurement can be used as a format for representing coordinates. This possibility together with use of the receiver of geonavigation data (GPS/GLONASS), allows you to receive the current location in a more informative form. To improve user interaction with the application, a saving the data state at the time of closing, support for changing screen orientation, and the ability to quickly navigate to a document have been added. When closing the data, as well as the application itself, the scale, current position, color model, brightness, contrast and other parameters are saved.
    The improved task of connecting geoportals allows you to optimize the display of popular third-party sources of spatial data (OpenStreetMap, Yandex, KB "Panorama" and others) on mobile devices. The program has increased the speed of loading and displaying tiles. Taking into account the system performance, a pool of independent threads is formed to load, process and display the received data. Multi-threaded data loading reduces latency when moving the screen, zooming the map, and performing spatial queries on the geoportal.
    The functioning of the mobile application in conditions of limited amount of available RAM has been improved. The need for the program to operate under conditions of a limited amount of system resources becomes relevant when using the embedded devices, specialized tablets and other similar devices. When there is insufficient memory, the GIS kernel automatically activates a buffer with a limited amount of memory and performs all data operations using only this buffer. As a result, memory consumption by the GIS application is drastically reduced. In the new version the algorithms of processing and displaying data have been improved. The number of supported sheets for multi-sheet maps has been increased by 4 times. There is increased the accuracy of calculations of a transparency for vector objects and a polygon object - color glass. The algorithms for interaction with the GIS Server have been improved, for example, the interaction mechanism when editing maps containing a small number of objects.
    GIS "Panorama Mobile" allows you to open the main formats of digital maps of the GIS "Panorama" on mobile devices based on Android and to process information from the built-in GPS/GLONASS receiver. The user can prepare in advance the required set of spatial data in one of the desktop products (GIS "Panorama", "Panorama-editor", GIS Panorama Mini), pack them into a ZIP archive using standard means and transfer them to the mobile GIS "Panorama Mobile". The process of working with data is carried out autonomously, without connecting to the Internet. When the user moves, his current position is dynamically displayed according to the coordinates obtained from the GPS/GLONASS receiver. For ease of use, it is possible to synchronize the map position with the current location. To save the coordinates obtained during movement, a track recording mode is provided, which creates a separate map and puts the trajectory of movement onto it. For all objects of a map during the work the basic information is provided.

  • 23.01.2024 In the Complex of preparing documents of aeronautical information the tools of designing aeronautical maps in accordance with ICAO requirements have been improved
    In KB "Panorama" the Complex of preparing documents of aeronautical information version 8.2.6 under the control of the GIS "Panorama" or GIS "Operator" has been developed. The new version expands the modes for formation of border design of aeronautical maps in accordance with the requirements of ICAO Doc 8697 ("Manual on Aeronautical Charts") and the AIP of the Russian Federation.
    Dialogs for input of the information have been updated ("Input airports and heliports to database", "Input of obstacles, OCA/OCH sectors", "Maintaining the runway profile database") for maintaining a PostgreSQL database in two measurement systems (feet and meters).
    In the program the list of the keywords used for filling templates with information from a database of the Complex in feet and meters has been expanded: airport elevation (ft/m), transition height, exceeding the threshold, absolute/relative height of flight over obstacles (OCA/H), the minimum safe height of flight in sector and others. The full list of keywords is given in the "System Programmer's Guide" document.
    The Complex includes a set of templates for creating border designs for aeronautical maps. The template file is a user map in *.sitx format, created on the basis of the dfc.rsc classifier. Keywords are stored in the semantics of the object "Own name, signature text". The program allows the use of templates developed by the user in accordance with the recommendations set out in the document "Methodology of preparing for publication of a collection of aeronautical information".
    The dialog "Interface for formation of marginal (out border) design and maps of section AD" has been improved. Function has been added for scaling the original map and map with border design, which allows you to model a displaying the scheme taking into account its size.
    The "Map Editor" task, which is part of the GIS "Panorama", has been improved. A new mode "Auto-transfer of labels lines" has been added into the "Labels" mode group, designed to perform interactive formatting of multi-line labels texts on a map when designing templates. When changing the size of the label metric by moving its second point, the label text is automatically split into lines, which ensures that the overall text width corresponds to the specified size.
    The complex of preparing documents of aeronautical information is a set of tools for maintaining an aeronautical data base, a modeling and analyzing the aeronautical situation, generating aeronautical maps and exchanging data with other information systems through export and import in the ARINC 424-19 exchange format and export in the AIXM 5.1 format.

  • 16.01.2024 GIS "Panorama" expands the tools of automated creation of complex objects on topographic maps of the area
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" version 15.1.0 has been developed for the OS "Astra Linux Special Edition", OS "Alt Linux", "RED OS" and Ubuntu 20.04 and 22.04 LTS. In the new version the modes of the map's editing task have been improved, support for the WebP format has been added, display of matrixes of heights and depths with smoothing has been accelerated. In the program the possibilities of import of the raster data are expanded, the library of programmable signs of aeronautical documents has been improved. The new version uses the libraries of the cross-platform Qt framework version 5.
    The modes "Corner rounding", "Create bergstrich in point","Create double bergstrich on the closed contours" and "Creation of zone by object" of the "Autoshapes" group have been added into the task of editing vector maps. The "Corner rounding" mode is designed to give smooth shapes to the contours of objects by setting the radius of rounding corners by moving the mouse pointer. The modes "Create bergstrich in point" and ","Create double bergstrich on the closed contours" are intended for the automatic formation of berghishes (indicators of the direction of the slope) on selected relief's objects (horizontals) of the map. Their location on the horizontal is determined automatically (in places farthest from geometric center of the selected object). The metric of the created object is formed automatically perpendicularly to the selected object to the right of the digitizing direction of the selected horizontal. The length of created object is calculated according to the sizes specified for it in the digital classifier.
    The "Building of a zone around the object" mode is used to perform parallel constructions. Editing can be performed in single mode (an object selected on the map) or group mode (a group of objects previously selected on the map or a logical set of objects). When working in single mode, the width of the created zone is set interactively on the map. During group processing, a dialog for requesting parameters of zone construction is displayed, in which the radius and type of the zone to be formed (rounded or with sharp corners) are set.
    Connecting spatial data in Mbtiles, BIR, GeoPackage formats has been improved. The new version adds support for the Webp format, used to compress images in Mbtiles, BIR, GeoPackage databases and geoportals. The Webp format allows both lossy and lossless image compression. The format is based on algorithm of compression of the still image (key frame) from the VP8 video codec. Uses a RIFF container for storage. On average, it compresses images 40% more efficiently than the JPEG format. It is widely used for transmitting data and images in geoportals, due to its smaller volume, it allows to accelerate data transfer. There is added a new geoportal - Topographic maps of the world.
    Drawing matrixes of heights and depths with smoothing has been accelerated. The display of smoothed matrixes is decomposed into threads, which significantly reduces delays when working with them. For example, on a 4-core processor with a clock frequency of 3.5 GHz, the speed of displaying the smoothed matrix increased by 2.5 times.
    The task "Import of raster data" has been improved. Import of rasters of format MrSID (SID) and ECW has been added. Formats are used to compress raster graphics. By means of these formats, packed huge raster images such as aerial photography and satellite photos can be quickly viewed piecemeal without the need to unpack the entire file.
    The library of programmable signs (dfc.iml64), used for preparing aeronautical documents with the dfc.rsc classifier, has been improved. The display of the MSA sign (minimum safe altitudes) has been improved in accordance with the requirements of ICAO (ICAO, International Civil Aviation Organization). The new programmable sign "Scheme of safe altitudes (MSA)" allows more flexible setting of parameters: size and thickness of the circle line, type and thickness of the course indicator line, parameters of fonts for course and altitude signatures, distance between two-line altitude signatures (spacing). The new sign has an adaptive algorithm of scheme construction that takes into account the sizes of the central element of the scheme, the course indicator and the height of the course font.
    The new version uses the libraries of the cross-platform framework Qt version 5. As a result, in addition to domestic operating systems (Astra Linux, Alt Linux and RED OS), support has been added for one of the most popular modern distributions of the Linux family - Ubuntu (versions 20.04 and 22.04 with long-term technical support). Using Ubuntu as a desktop environment allows you to utilize the wide ecosystem of applications and tools available in this operating system's repository.

  • 04.01.2024 "Workstation of agronomist" reduces time costs for creating a field map and analyzing the land bank of an agricultural enterprise
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of agronomist" version 15.1.2 has been developed. In the new version, the "Satellite-based field recognition" mode has been updated, the "Lists of objects" dialog and the "Map Legend" task have been improved. The integrated application of the "Workstation of agronomist" modes implements automated technology for maintaining a land bank and soil fertility base.
    The updated mode "Satellite-based field recognition" ensures recognition of the boundaries of agricultural land contours based on Earth's remote sensing data. The program interacts with the Mapflow.ai service and, using a neural network, automatically deciphers and delineates the boundaries of working areas of arable land. The new version changes the user authorization protocol for the service, including the use of tokens issued in the user’s personal account. Information processing is performed in a local area limited by the polygon indicated on the map. The construction area can be specified by a rectangle or an arbitrary closed polygon. The construction of a vector model of working areas of arable land is carried out on the basis of automatically selected current remote sensing data of medium (10 m/px) and high resolution (1.2 m/px). In the new version a recognition of fields boundaries from Sentinel-2 images has been added. The vector data constructed by means of service is automatically loaded into the GIS "Panorama" from GeoJSON format onto a map of the working areas of the agricultural enterprise. The field map is used to maintain field passports, construct thematic cartograms, obtain vegetation indices, maps of heterogeneity and nitrogen requirements, calculate the application of fertilizer doses and other agrotechnical calculations.
    In the process of maintaining a land bank for an agricultural enterprise, the boundaries of field contours are often compared with the boundaries of cadastral objects. Determination of intersections and overlaps is performed using the "Object intersection calculation" mode. For clarity of the results of the analysis of the relative position of various groups of objects in the form of thematic layers, the "Lists of objects" dialog has been improved. Possibility of displaying list of objects by style (conventional symbol) customized by the user has been added. In the "Lists of objects" dialog, custom styles are automatically formed for the selected lists of objects. Custom styles for displaying lists of objects are a set of conventional symbols for polygons, lines and points. Style sets can be combined into themes. New features allow you to quickly add lists by selected objects on the map and perform tasks with lists: Building a zone around objects of the selected list, Cutting objects, Union of objects, Building the areas of objects crossing.
    The application task "Map Legend" has been improved. Display of named lists of objects in the legend dialog has been added. Enabling and disabling the visibility of object lists is done by simply clicking the left mouse button on the icon corresponding to the list. On the map, lists of objects are displayed as separate thematic layers in accordance with user-customized legends. The composition and order of display of thematic layers in the general data list is controlled by enabling and disabling the visibility of the list of objects in the bottom panel. The convenience of designing the appearance of thematic layers has been improved: assigning a style and color to the list of objects has been added. Simple addition of selected objects into the list with automatic formation of names has been implemented.
