In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of the urban planner" versions 14.4.0 has been developed. In the new version the tools for formation of templates of urban planning extract have been improved, possibility of obtaining the information from the Rosreestr portal by SchemaParcels scheme has been implemented. In the program the tools of importing data in DXF formats, display and highlighting of titles on a map have been updated. The supported volume of data of XML format (more than 4 Gbytes) has been increased.
In the "Workstation of urban planner" the mode "Creating an extract by semantics of object" has been improved. The urban planning extract is formed according to the report template and filled in with information about the object of the land-property complex. The mode provides processing of objects selected using the filter in the dialog and objects selected by the user on the map.
In the "Reading CPT and map updating" mode, the function of importing information from XML files according to the SchemaParcels schema has been added. When drawing characteristic points of the boundaries of parts of land plots, the formation of the semantics "Number of the object part" and "Account number" has been added. Import of data of multi-contour cadastral object has been improved. The program forms separate areal, linear and dot objects and unites them into a set.
The list of attributes of accounting objects in the database, presented on the cadastral map, has been updated in accordance with the changed composition of the semantics of cadastral objects. To work with a cadastral map containing land plots, real estate objects, functional and territorial zones, utility networks, the possibilities for applying and displaying titles have been improved. New tools not only allow you to highlight the title with a shadow, outline, background, frame, and also to format the text taking into account the signs of the selected case and insert of spaces between characters (spacing). Tools for searching and selecting objects by a given area have been improved.
There is added a support for files larger than 4 GB when importing spatial planning data in GML format, reading cadastral data from XML files, and in other tasks. Algorithms for loading data in DXF and XML formats have been optimized, tools of metadata management have been expanded.
The dialog "Import data from DXF format" has been improved, stream loading of several DXF files has been implemented. When importing in the "Create a set of maps" mode, automatic processing of design urban planning documents prepared in CAD systems and creation of a separate vector map for each DXF file is provided. The list of generated maps is saved in one MPT project, which can be used to quickly analyze a large number of projects for related urban development objects.
"Workstation of urban planner" is used in the daily work of specialists of regional executive authorities and local self-government, as well as individuals and legal entities engaged in activities in the field of urban planning, territorial zoning, development of territories and settlements, monitoring the implementation of land use and development rules, determining types of using the land plots, design, construction and reconstruction of real estate objects. The new version of the program has expanded the means of processing and analyzing cartographic materials as part of documents of territorial planning, urban zoning, territory planning, landscaping and land management. The software product ensures the maintenance of an on-duty cadastral map, address plan, accounting of objects of the land and property complex and management of urban-planning activities.
The new version of the program is available for download in the Download section.
The geoportal "Bank of spatial data" is supplemented with maps of Bremen, Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Lower Saxony, Schleswig-Holstein (Germany), formed according to OpenStreetMap data. The source data was obtained from the Geofabrik website. To work with maps, you can use the GIS Panorama Mini program or other software products of KB "Panorama".
The maps were 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".
In KB "Panorama" the professional vectorizer "Panorama-editor" version 14.4.0 has been developed. In the new version the tools of displaying vector maps, terrain images and matrix data about the area have been improved, the tools of search and selecting of objects by a given area on the ground have been refined, tools of processing of files of format DXF, S57, XML and graphic files were refined, tools for checking the quality of maps, preparations of reports and processing of the metadata have been expanded.
Abilities of displaying titles have been expanded. New properties of design the titles allow to mark the title by a shade, outline, a background and a frame, and also to format the text taking into account a spacing sign (an insert of spaces) and the chosen register (uppercase, lowercase, as in a sentence). Examples of titles are given on the map included into the installation: menu File - Example data - data\shape\shape.sitx. There is added the ability to change the thickness of solid and dashed contours of objects by the value of the service semantics "Line thickness in mm" (31005).The display of objects of the "Map Insert" type, implemented in the library of programmable signs shape.iml64, has been improved. The new algorithm allows cutting the map image according to the metric of polygons and multipolygons of arbitrary shape. Examples of objects of the "Map inset" type are contained in the map included in the GIS Panorama: File - Example data - C:\Users\Public\Documents\Panorama\Panorama14\data\shape\shape.sitx.
Objects of type "Map inset" contain a link to the map file in the service semantics "Graphic file or map" (32769). Cutting the map image is performed according to the metric of the "Map Inset" object.
The "Report Designer" task has been improved. A new mode "Additional design" has been added, which allows you to apply onto the report layout the auxiliary design elements: icons of linear scales and a direction onto the north, as well as design frames of various types.
The task "Highlight any area" has been improved. Automatic detection of the highlighting mode for objects inside the area has been added. When drawing an area from left to right, objects that are completely inside the selected area will be highlighted (the color of the area is blue), and from right to left, objects that intersect it (the color of the area is green). At the end of drawing the area on the map the objects located inside the selected area are highlighted. To change the selection conditions, press the right mouse button and select one of the modes in the context menu: Highlight inside (delete intersection), Highlight with intersection (and inside), Highlight outside (delete intersection). Marking of objects on the map according to various search conditions has been improved. If clusters are displayed on the map (generalized signs of closely spaced objects specified in the classifier), then the corresponding signs of clusters are displayed and marked, taking into account the number of signs and their location on the map.
The task "Select object" has been improved. On the "Metric" bookmark, the ability to delete the selected coordinates of an object by the list has been added. When coordinates are selected in the table, the selected area is synchronously highlighted on the scheme.
For automatic control of entered values of character semantics in "Classifier Editor" the possibility has been added for assigning to one semantics at once the several templates of a string defining the valid characters in value of a string or the sample of a string of a special purpose, for example, GUID, cadastral number and others. For strings that have value templates, when you enter a value in the Select Object dialog, it checks if it matches one of the specified templates. If there is a mismatch, the message indicates to the user the character number from which the input string does not match the template. The general control of the vector map has been improved: when performing the control of self-intersections, a correction of adjunction of the points of the linear object's contour to its own contour has been added. When performing control in the "Edit" mode, the contour is cut into two or more separate objects.
Display of rasters with smoothing has been added. At increasing the image of a raster more than in 2 times from the initial size in pixels the smoothing is carried out. The new algorithm of display allows to get rid of "pixelization" effect when you increase the rasters. Image smoothing is performed by bicubic interpolation method (by 16 nearest raster elements). Smoothing is enabled or disabled via the main menu: View - Raster smoothing.
The task "Import files from DXF format" has been improved. "Create a set of maps" mode has been added into the dialog, which is designed for automatic processing of a set of selected data and creating a separate user map for each DXF file. As a result of the task execution, the list of generated maps is saved into the MPT project.
When importing S57 sea maps, support has been added for datasets with updates of sea maps (ER profile), which are located in files with extensions 001, 002, 003, and so on. The update files must be placed with the source data set with extension 000 in the same folder or according to the folder structure according to IHO S57/S63 standards. The names of the source dataset and update files must match.
Support for XML files larger than 4 GB has been added. It is used when importing GML data, reading cadastral data from XML format files, and in other tasks.
The task "Import of raster data" has been improved. There is added a use of ZRS placing files from Zulu for automatic positioning of imported rasters. In dialog "Import of raster data" for an automatic binding of the raster image in the work region the binding's files the WORLD FILE, TAB and MAP are also supported. To use a binding file when importing rasters, in the dialog it is enough to select the type of binding file or the name of the product that generated the file from the list.
The algorithm of data compression of a matrix of heights has been improved. Functions of optimisation of a matrix of heights were improved: compression of 16-bit data has been added. This algorithm is used at loading a matrix of heights in the following modes: File - Import rasters or matrixes from... - Matrix (SRTM, GeoTIFF, IMG), GDAL matrix (IMG, DEM...). To compress previously loaded 16-bit matrixes, select the matrix in the list of data and select the "Optimization" item in the context menu (select the "Optimization of packed matrixes" mode in the dialog). Typically, a compressed matrix occupies a volume 5-7 times less than the original volume and contains 3-4 overview matrixes (reduced copies). Reducing the volume and using reduced copies greatly accelerates the visualization of the matrix.
Formation of PostScript CMYK file has been improved: accounting for palette colors of all open maps has been added, processing of gradient fillings has been added. Creating PostScript files is performed in the map printing dialog, which is called through the main menu: File - Print. To print a map in PostScript, you must select a PostScript compatible print device and output type: PostScript RGB or PostScript CMYK. The detailed description of the procedure for formation of PostScrip files is contained in the document "Applied tasks. Preparation for publication".
In the "View Passport" task on the "Sheet metadata" page, information about the date and time of creation and updating of map sheets has been added. Date and time information is displayed in local time and stored in the worldwide UTC system.
The new version of the program is available for download in the Download section.
