Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a video lesson of filling the information in dialog "Base of cadastral works". Users of "Workstation of cadastral engineer", GIS "Panorama" or "Panorama-editor" can add, edit, delete information in the base of cadastral works using the complex of geodesy calculations.
The subsystem "Base of cadastral works" is intended for maintaining information about cadastral engineers, customers, measuring instruments and contracts for the performance of cadastral works. The subsystem is integrated into all modes of preparation of cadastral documents, including the land survey plan, the technical plan, a map (plan) of object of land management. The information specified in the subsystem's dialogs is used to speed up data input in various modes of forming cadastral documents.
The base of cadastral works is stored in SQLite format and contains information about contracts for the performance of works, cadastral engineers, customers of cadastral works and other information.
You can get acquainted with the training materials in the "Video lessons" section.
Specialists of KB "Panorama" prepared and placed the map of the Kingdom of Norway on the geoportal "Bank of spatial data". The map was formed using OpenStreetMap 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) and was 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.
Free maps on the basis of OpenStreetMap data are available for download on the page "Digital maps".
Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a video lesson on using the "Check of vector map quality" mode. This task is intended to check the structural integrity of digital data, the completeness and quality of the metric and semantic description of objects, and to perform automatic correction of detected errors.
The task "Check of vector map quality" can work in two modes: control of the data and editing of the data. In dialog "Checking type" the following groups of check are specified:
- structural control, which is performed always and for all map objects and can never be disabled;
- control of the map passport;
- control of the objects metrics;
- control of the objects semantics;
- topological control (coordination control) of data.
In each group of checking types, except for structural control, it is possible to set or deactivate the checking types specified in the corresponding list. You can disable/enable each specific type of check. The list of specified types of checking and their parameters forms a temporary file of the scheme of control which is relevant during the current session of the program of control.
When the control program is called for the first time, the types of checking and their parameters are set in accordance with the Default.cxml schema from the program directory. This schema contains the types of control and their parameters that are set by default. Error messages for each map are recorded into the log and into the report on execution of the map quality control. Errors can be viewed in the control log and printed as a report document. The HTML report document is saved in the map directory. Viewing the results of control is carried out in the mode "View map control log" in the GIS "Panorama". You can switch to viewing the results of control by means of the "Protocol" key.
You can get acquainted with the training materials in the "Video lessons" section.
In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Operator" version 14.0.3 has been developed. In the new version of the program, the display of sea maps has been refined, the tools for creating and updating working maps of the operational situation and the design of special maps have been updated. The display of 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. There is refined a display of depth marks taking into account safety contours and taking into account depths on drying surfaces.
To display tables with data of operational situation on the map, a new graphic symbol "Table" has been developed. This symbol is a point object that has a link to a CSV file in semantics and a conventional symbol of the table type. The graphic parameters of the table are customized in the semantics of the object, in the RSC classifier or in the graphic parameters of the object. The table cell allows to place the text, the numerical data, pictures (in PNG, JPG, BMP format), colored figures and the percentage scales. The table can consist of one or more pages. Table parameters are customized in the "Editing a table" dialog. 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 with the put tables will have one view in desktop, mobile, web-applications on any platforms, when locally placed or on the GIS Server and when printing.
In the "Map Editor" task, the mode "Create object" by the metric coordinates entered from the keyboard has been improved. To speed up the work, the ability to copy and paste coordinate values using the clipboard has been expanded (key combination Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V). Copying and pasting data is supported both in a separate field and in a selected range of table cells. The modes of creating a linear and areal object have been improved using the new parameter "Snap at shortest distance", which is activated when the corresponding item of the context menu is selected or by pressing the "hot" key "W".
For the mode "New Image" there is added the possibility of creation of dot signs by each point of the metrics of the selected object or a group of selected objects. A new image of object is assigned using the dialog "Select object type from the classifier" or by pressing the hotkey "E". Result of executing the operation of recoding is the set of point objects, the coordinates of the metric of which correspond to the metric of the selected object. After completing the assignment of a new symbol in the "New Image" mode, the original object is deleted.
On the panel "Graphic objects" the mode "Create table" has been added for creating a graphical object of the "Table" type. The graphical view of the object makes it possible to immediately create and draw the desired table onto the map, without adding it into the classifier. This method is relevant if the created table is unique for a specific object/territory on the map.
In a mode of creation of objects "Coordinate label" the possibility of changing the settings of the title has been added during object creation. Title customizing is carried out in dialog of selecting a font which is started by means of the contextual menu item to Set font parameters.The new font values are stored in the object semantics the Coordinate label.
In the "Select object" dialog, the ability has been implemented for adding and editing semantics of type the "Link to the file folder". Value of semantics is the name of directory, which contains many files of different formats and folders. When accessing the filled semantics "Link to the file folder", a list of files contained in the root folder and subfolders is automatically generated. By double click by a mouse on the chosen file, the corresponding program of recognizing and processing the file is started. When referring to documents, tables and graphic images, the contents of the file are displayed, when referring to spatial data, the dataset is opened in a separate GIS window.The folder with documents can be compressed into a ZIP file, and the object can be assigned the semantics of the "Link to a file" type. Actions with documents will be the same as when linking to a folder. When packing maps into MAPZ, SITZ, MPTZ formats, documents referenced from the semantics of type the "Link to the file folder" will also be packed into one data set, unlike semantics the "Link to a file".
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. When selecting objects by semantics the value coincidence of only current semantics or marked semantics is checked.
In the "Metrics" 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. Into the context menu the "Save metric coordinates to EPSG:3857" item has been added, 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 "Metric" bookmark, a fast copying into a clipboard of all coordinates of the metrics using the Ctrl+A key combination has been implemented for the further use of the copied data, for example, for their placing in the mode of creation of object by coordinates entered from the keyboard.
Into dialog of constructing titles by semantics of selected objects the possibility of selecting a mode of creating a title for a multipolygon has been added. When the "To sign all objects included in the multipolygon" option is enabled, the title is formed for each contour that belongs to the multipolygon and is created in accordance with the dialog settings
The task "Connecting data from geoportals" has been improved. There is added a support for the geoportal of the Russian Federal Geological Fund - Objects of accounting for the state balance of mineral reserves, demonstrating the presence of minerals. The geoportal includes 3 layers: Hydrocarbon raw materials, Solid fuel minerals, Common minerals. Improved support for the Rosreestr geoportal. The speed of displaying data from geoportals has been increased due to requests for the availability of data for selected territories. Display of vector information has been improved, captions have been added.
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.
The task "Data list of maps" has been improved. On the "Matrix" bookmark the call of the "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. 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. Changing the location is carried out both for one and for all matrixes of the document.
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. 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.
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 other projection. Into the menu "Options" the items were added "Show all objects" and "Display/Inform window". The mode "Show all objects" is intended for displaying all map objects without taking into account the range of objects visibility and the contents of the map display. The mode "Display/Inform window" is intended 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.
In KB "Panorama" a digital geographic map of scale 1: 1 000 000 in format SXF onto territory of Republic of Poland has been prepared. As a source for preparation of the map the VMap0 data obtained from the information from the site www.gis-lab.info has served. The map contains information on the number of inhabitants for cities and the name of settlements in Russian. As additional materials the World map of scale 1: 5 000 000 and OpenStreetMap data were used.
The map was led to the classifier of geographic maps of scale 1: 1 000 000 (1mogk13g.rsc). It can be used for a general assessment of the area and the study of natural conditions, to ensure the educational process, as a basis for the creation of geographic maps of a smaller scale, thematic and special maps, and solving other tasks. The map is distributed free of charge under a free license.
Digital geographic map of scale 1: 1 000 000 in SXF format is available for download on the page "Digital maps".
