In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama"version 15.1.2 has been developed. In the new version the protocols for connecting geoportals, tools for performing spatial requests over lists of objects, control of versions of digital maps during field works, tools for designing reports and maintaining digital classifiers and libraries of conventional signs have been expanded. Converters of matrix data in various formats have been updated, display of matrixes of heights with smoothing of a relief shading and construction of shadows has been accelerated. In the block of geodetic and cadastral tasks, the list of supported cadastral objects has been expanded. To enter information on land management objects, support has been added for objects specified in Government Decree No. 1532 dated December 31, 2015; support has been added for the XML scheme TP_v07.xsd, introduced by Rosreestr order No. P/0347 dated September 6, 2023 for the preparation of technical plans.
To expand the list of supported geoportals and Mbtiles, BIR, GeoPackage formats, support for the Webp format, used for image compression, has been added. The Webp format allows to compress images both with losses, and lossless. The format is based on algorithm of compression of the still image (key frame) from the VP8 video codec and on the average, it compresses images 40% more efficiently than the JPEG format. There is added a new geoportal - Topographic maps of the world.
The task "Automatic determination of the contours of arable land", which is part of the "Complex of agronomical tasks", has been improved. The task automatically determines the contours of arable land over a given area of terrain using the external web service GeoAlert.io. In the new version, the user authorization protocol for the service https://mapflow.ai/ru has been changed. Authorization by token issued to the user in the personal account has been added. Recognition of field boundaries from Sentinel-2 images has been added.
"Map Legend" task has been improved. On the "General data list" tab, modes for working with lists of objects have been added. This allows 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. On a map the lists of objects are displayed as separate thematic layers. The composition of thematic layers in the general data list is controlled by enabling or disabling the visibility of the object list 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 the name has been added. If necessary the name can be changed in a tree of the objects list. For example, after building a zone with a radius of 10 meters around the "Lakes" list, the created objects are automatically highlighted on the map, and when further objects are added into the new list, the conditional name "Zone 10 - Lakes" will be formed. A mode for enabling or disabling the display of all thematic layers on the map has been added into the header of the "Object Lists" panel. The following modes can be applied to the selected list: Selecting a list of objects on the map, Search for objects of the list on the map, Setting the display composition by list objects.
"Map object search" and "Map contents" dialogs have been improved. In the conditions for selecting objects by measurements, a type of measurement has been added - the number of object parts. This mode allows you to select objects whose metric consists of a specified number of parts. For example, it is possible to select polygons that have internal contours, linear objects or complex titles from several parts.
The "Map comparing" task has been improved, designed to control versions of digital vector maps, dispatch the updating of digital terrain data by employees when performing field work or processing remote sensing data. Ability has been added to quickly view the characteristics of created, modified and deleted objects. When you open a work map (on the "Receiving work map" tab), the selected map automatically opens in the main application window. For clarity, the windows of the basic and working maps are arranged in the form of a mosaic: the basic one is on the right, the working one is on the left. To view information about an object specified in the list of changes, you must use the "Show object" or "Select object" mode.
"Map Editor" task 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 preparing maps for publication or drawing up reports. 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 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 "Select object" dialog has been improved. On the "Semantic" bookmark the entering of numerical semantics has been simplified. When entering a value for numerical semantics, the previously entered value for this semantics is automatically entered into the field. If there are no previously entered values, the default value specified in the map classifier (Classifier Editor - Semantics - Default) is entered into the field. After entering or editing a semantics value in the object selection dialog, the value is entered into the general list of semantics values with identification by the semantics key. The list of values does not depend on the classifier used - at coincidence of a key of semantics in several classifiers, a single value is used. The list of values is written into a file c:\Users\Public\Documents\Panorama\lastvalue.xml, and is used in subsequent sessions of working with GIS.
The tasks of importing and exporting matrix of heights have been improved. When importing a matrix of heights from TIFF, SRTM, IMG and other formats, the matrix in MTW format can have an element size from 8 to 64 bits. When loading, optimization of matrix data is automatically carried out. During optimization, reduced copies are formed, and also data in 16 and 32 bit formats are compressed without loss. A matrix in compressed form usually has a significantly smaller volume relative to uncompressed data. When optimizing, matrixes with an element size of 16 bits and a height precision of 1 meter are usually reduced in 10 and more times. Reducing the volume of the matrix covering a larger area, allows you to increase display speed.
When exporting, each matrix of heights can be written in one of the recording formats (from 8 to 64 bits) and with an accuracy of height values from 1 millimeter to 1 meter. In the "Data list" dialog on the "Matrixes" tab, a call of the "Exporting a group of height matrices into TIFF and KMZ files" dialog has been added to export a group of matrixes of heights of the document into TIFF and KMZ files. The dialog allows you to select the height format in the output file: INT16, INT32, FLOAT32, FLOAT64. If the size of the exported matrix of heights exceeds the maximum TIFF file size (4 GB), then a BigTIFF file is formed. The BigTIFF format uses 64-bit offsets and supports files larger than 4 GB. The saved KMZ file is an archive of a KML file with a set of single-channel GeoTIFF files with data on relief heights. The new dialog is called using the "Save as..." item in the context menu for the "Matrix" tab.
Drawing heights and depth matrices with anti-aliasing has been accelerated. On a computer with a 4-core processor, the speed of drawing an anti-aliased matrix with shadows is increased by up to 2.5 times. When you select the "View - Matrix image - Only shadows" mode in the main menu, a shadow coloring (shading of relief) is applied on top of the map. Shadow coloring of the map improves the readability of the map relief. An example of drawing a map with shading of relief can be opened through the menu: File - Example data - c:\Users\Public\Documents\Panorama\Panorama15\data\noginsk\noginsk.mpt
In the "Classifier Editor" task, the ability has been added to set different values of the "Required semantics" attribute for different objects in the same series. For example, for a classifier of territorial planning schemes, the attributes "Cadastral number OKS" and "Cadastral number of the land plot..." are the required if the objects have the attribute "Status" with the values "Existing, Planned for reconstruction, Planned for liquidation", forming a series of objects with different symbols.
The "Correction of objects metric" task included into the "Check and correction of data" task group has been improved. The "Change 3D coordinate" mode has been added into the "Others" mode group. The mode performs change of 3D coordinate of selected objects on the map by a specified value. The task can be used to create design matrixes of relief elevations for calculations of soil volumes, modeling changes in relief.
The "Geodesy editor" task has been improved. In the "Save image for graphic part of report" mode, the algorithm for saving a file of format jpeg. emf. Tif has been changed taking into account settings of a vector and raster view of a map. The "Object union" mode has been updated, adding the ability to combine not only areal objects, but also linear and point objects. The program analyzes value of semantics of initial objects, forms a sample of objects of one type with identical values of semantics and unites them into a multipolygon, a multiline or a multipoint. The program stability to incorrectly entered input data has been increased.
The task "Cadastral documents" has been improved. In the "Editing attributes of a cadastral object" dialog, the list of supported cadastral objects has been expanded. To enter information on land management objects, support has been added for objects specified in Government Decree No. 1532 of December 31, 2015. For this purpose, the digital classifier survey.v6 has been updated, the missing objects and semantics have been added. The necessary land management objects are included in the "Cadastral plan of the territory" layer and include all types of administrative boundaries, territorial zones, zones with restrictions, zones with special conditions of use, forestries and forest parks, water objects and others. Support of various directories of the attributive information used in different types and versions of cadastral XML-documents has been implemented.
The "Land survey plan" mode has been updated. The algorithm of formation of the XML-document according to the MP_v09.xsd scheme has been refined. For the description of data on the specified ground areas, including, at specification of borders of adjacent cadastral objects the model of the cadastral data is specified. There are corrected the errors in creating an XML file of the land survey plan for the formation of land plots by dividing and clarifying the boundaries of a land plot with the ChangeBorder clarification type. To describe information about the specified parcels, including when clarifying the boundaries of adjacent cadastral objects, the cadastral data model has been refined. Each specified parcel must be represented on the map by two objects: the initial one - the old boundaries and the specified one - the new boundaries. If there is no coordinate description for the old boundaries in USRN, the initial parcel is not put onto a map. The initial and specified land plots must have the same identification semantics "Cadastral number" - for a one-contour land plot; "Cadastral number" and "Registration number" - for a multi-contour land plot or single land use. In nodes of metrics of the initial and specified land plots the point objects should be created. Points should be put taking into account their novelty and belonging to the cadastral object. To do this, the following semantics must be filled for point objects: Own name (for all points), Cadastral number (for points of all plots), Registration number for points of a multi-contour land plot or uniform land tenure), Novelty (for all points), RMS error of the position of MT points (required for existing points). Along the common boundary of two adjacent plots, characteristic points should be represented by a pair of point objects. The program assigns each point object to a plot according to the identification semantics "Cadastral number" and "Registration number".
In the "Technical plan" mode, support for the XML scheme TP_v07.xsd, introduced by order of Rosreestr dated September 6, 2023 No. P/0347, has been added. In the mode dialog, the directory dCultural_v01.xsd has been added - Type of cultural heritage object and the directories dAssBuilding_v04.xsd - Purpose of buildings, dNetworkPoints_v02.xsd - Information about the condition (safety) of the external sign of a geodetic network point, dWall_v02.xsd - Material of the external walls of the building have been updated.
In the "Correction of registry errors" mode, the algorithm has been changed to insert into the report the information about the coordinates of corrected cadastral objects (plots, OKSs and parts). Previously, it was required that there be two objects on the map with the same cadastral number (an object according to the Unified State Register and a corrected object). And if there was no object according to the Unified State Register, then the information was not inserted into the report. However, there are objects registered in the Unified State Register of Real Estate without a coordinate description of their boundaries. The modified algorithm allows you to analyze only one object - the corrected one.

Specialists of KB "Panorama" have refined a digital classifier for generating an electronic xml document sent to the registration authority, state authorities, local governments in the order of interdepartmental information interaction in terms of presenting a map (plan) of a land management object and information about boundaries, zones, territories, for inclusion in the register of boundaries of the Unified State Register of Real Estate, in the form of an electronic document. In the "Editing attributes of cadastral objects" dialog, the list of supported cadastral objects has been expanded. To enter information on land management objects, support has been added for objects specified in Government Decree No. 1532 of December 31, 2015. For this purpose, the missing semantics and objects have been added into the survey.v6.rscz classifier: "Border of a subject of the Russian Federation", "Border of a territory surveying project", "Land being changed according to the land surveying project". Attributive characteristics "Type of water object" and "Territorial zones and zones with special conditions for the use of territories" were created in accordance with the directories dWaterObjectType_v01.xsd and dZone_v04.xsd. The necessary land management objects are included in the layer "Cadastral plan of the territory" and include all types of administrative boundaries, territorial zones, zones with restrictions, zones with special conditions of use, forestries and forest parks, water objects, etc. Digital classifier is a part of the GIS "Panorama", "Workstation of cadastral engineer", "Panorama-editor".
The updated classifier is available for download in the "Classifiers" section.
Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a video lesson of work with tables of a database using the "Standard form of the Database Administrator". The user database management system is an integral part of the GIS "Panorama" and is designed to work with data stored in separate database tables on a local or network drive. Work with DBMS dBase, MS SQL, PostgreSQL is supported.
The standard form for work with tables is intended for displaying and editing data from database tables in tabular form. The form consists of a main window, a main menu, an access panel to the data table, and a link panel between the map and the data table. The access panel and link panel contain a set of buttons that allow you to view, add, edit data, customize the connection between a table record and a map object, and download data from the table to a *.csv file.
In the program the list of the unloaded information has been expanded at creating marginal design of aeronautical maps using the "Creating frameworks for aeronautical maps" dialog. Possibility has been added to put a sign of the minimum safe height onto a map with display of values in two measurement systems (feet and meters).
The aeronautical classifier (dfc.rscz) and library of programmable signs (dfc.iml64)have been modified in accordance with the requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organization contained in ICAO Doc 8697 ("Manual of Aeronautical Charts"). The new programmable sign "Sectors of minimum safe airport altitudes (MSA)" allows more flexible customization 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 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.
