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.
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

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".

In KB "Panorama" the GIS Constructor for Qt Designer SE version 13.3.0 has been developed for operating systems CentOS, Ubuntu, Astra Linux SE. In the new version, the functionality of the component of displaying three-dimensional model has been improved. When importing models into the DB3D format, spatial data TLS, OC3, DAE, OBJ can be imported as a set, assembled from various catalogs, with the ability to interactively select the composition of files. Possibility has been added for selecting a coordinate system of a binding the imported model: from the list, from a file of the metadata and EPSG database. For the COLLADA (DAE) format, a loading of the data can be executed in one of several provided modes depending on a way of the geometry analysis. For each level of the model, the user can select an individual texture value. In the component for importing graphic files when processing BMP, PNG, JPEG, TIFF, GeoTIFF, IMG formats, the user is provided with extended information about the source file: data type, minimum and maximum channel data values, interpretation method, projection parameters and coordinate systems. To optimize the import of large graphic files, it is possible to create an output file without copying data, in this case, raster data will be read directly from the original graphic file. To improve import performance, the user can disable transaction logging. In the dialog of importing matrixes from the SRTM, GeoTIFF, IMG formats, the ability to eliminate undefined heights by mode of linear interpolation of neighboring known values has been added.
Operator.p3d library of three-dimensional symbols of operator.rsc classifier has been improved. There are added the simplified models of Russian military equipment for displaying at distances far from the observer. This approach increases the speed of displaying a three-dimensional terrain model on maps of the operational situation with a large amount of equipment. Thus the nearest view of models remains detailed, corresponding to specific types of weapons. The operator.rsc classifier provides preparation of special maps for all types and branches of the RF Armed Forces.
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.
