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.
GIS "Operator" SE is the universal domestic geographic information system for law enforcement agencies. The program is designed for accumulation, storage, automated processing and display of data, calculation results and forecasts with geospatial reference. GIS "Operator" SE contains means of displaying and processing vector, raster and matrix maps. The application provides users with tools for solving specialized tasks of modeling the movement of special objects against the background of 3D model, predicting the consequences of emergencies at hazardous facilities, monitoring aircraft movement, conducting geodetic and topographic work, processing data from GPS/GLONASS navigation devices, printing displayed spatial data to various output devices and others.

Display, import and export of points of the planned-altitude basis (PAB) is carried out taking into account whether the data belongs to closed or open information. When the processing of confidential information is prohibited, this data (coordinates in the state system and heights) for a certain type of points is not processed, displayed or uploaded. The differentiation of rights makes it possible to organize separate and protected access to information. The process of deleting a large number of records (more than 10 thousand) has been accelerated. New coordinate systems have been added to the reference book. It has been expanded list of diagnostic and error messages.
Data security is ensured by the differentiation of access rights based on the security tools that are part of the operating system. It is supported basic authentication, digest authentication, system authentication (web server tools), and domain authentication (Kerberos or ActiveDirectory). Additional security is provided by the use of pass-through authentication when working with the database. Connection to the database occurs with the rights of the user working with the system. The complex is adapted to work on a wide range of operating systems (Astra Linux SE, ALT Linux, Elbrus, Ubuntu, CentOS, MS Windows and others) and architectures (Intel, Elbrus, Baikal). The program is registered in the register of domestic software under the number 1862. Data bank of digital maps and remote sensing data is the basis for building the infrastructure of spatial data of the federal, regional and municipal levels, in corporate information systems. Within the framework of a single geoinformation space, Data bank of digital maps and remote sensing data implements the collection, storage, quality control, search and issuance of spatial data in exchange formats. The spatial data selected with the help of the program can be placed for multi-user access on GIS Server and published according to the international standards OGC WFS, WFS-T, WMS, WMTS, WCS on the application server
Users can access data both from a thin client (using GIS WebServer SE) and from desktop applications (

There are improved topographic fonts designed to prepare for the publication of topographic maps of various scales. The changes have been made to the fonts P151, T132. Fixed display errors of characters, changed their width and distance between them. It is added support for the Cyrillic character set to the font D432.
Unloading into the boundary plan in the section "Information on the performed measurements and calculations" the information about the methods of determining coordinates (METHOD) and formulas for determining the points SCP (FORMULA) are performed in accordance with the semantics of boundary points. For generation a boundary plan in the file XML in the section "Information on changed land plots and their parts" (ChangeParcel) of the element "Contours of the multi-contour land plot, the transformation of which is carried out" (TransformationContours), it is added reading information about registered numbers (PART_NUMB) of the external contours MKU for the option cadastral work "Section ...". The composition of MCU does not need to include removed contours, only those are changing (transforming) are needed. When recording the error formula for determining the area to the report, there has been added the ability to insert a formula from the program settings with substituted values. If there is semantic value FORMALA_S, then it is inserted. If there is no semantics, a formula is inserted with values with the selection option: "formula", "formula and initial data", "formula, initial data and error value".

KB "Panorama" has developed the Converter of large-scale plans to format DXF version 8.6.0. The program lets to generate a large-scale topographic map or plan in format DXF in standard symbols adopted for cartographic work in the Russian Federation. In the new version of the program, the functionality has been expanded in terms of obtaining a drawing in the required units of measurement. When converting data, the coordinates of the source map objects are automatically converted to the established units of measurement. This lets to set up symbol templates for conversion in various programs that work in different coordinate systems. The program supports coordinate systems with the following units: inches, feet, miles, millimeters, centimeters, meters, kilometers, micro-inches, and so on up to light years and parsecs.
As part of import substitution, most domestic companies - manufacturers of cartographic data that previously used AutoDesk products (for example, AutoCAD) in their work, are forced to switch to alternative software that supports the format DXF. To ensure a more accurate transfer of the color palette for objects in the output map (DXF drawing), the functionality of setting the color code by index and RGB code has been corrected in the new version of the converter. This will display map data in the specified color palette when opened with alternative software.The new version of the converter now displays more detailed information about the license. In addition to the license key number, the user has access to information about the license validity period and the end date of the program technical support. The package includes classifiers and libraries of symbols in format DXF for large-scale maps and plans of scales 1: 500, 1: 1,000, 1: 2,000, 1: 5,000.
