  • 09.10.2020 In a GIS "Operator" the tools of analysis of navigation data have been expanded
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Operator" version 13.5.1 for MS Windows has been developed. The tools for processing navigation data and multidimensional spatial databases have been expanded. The task of importing navigation data in GPX format has been improved. When recording a track, a linear object with a four-dimensional metric (latitude, longitude, height, time) is formed on the map. The time field is recorded for each point in the form of two 4-byte integers YYYYMMDD and HHMMSS. The values are selected from the "time" node, for example:
    The task of importing navigation data of NMEA-0183 format has been improved. When recording a track, a linear object with a four-dimensional metric (latitude, longitude, height, speed) is formed on the map. The speed field is recorded as a floating point number in km/h. The value is selected from the velocity field and converted from knots to km/h (multiplied by 1.852).

    A new view of programmable signs has been added for demonstrating the displaying the trajectories of movement with a four-dimensional metric. Measurement at a point can be displayed in the color of a line segment, taking into account whether the value falls within the specified range or by another algorithm. In the example on the map \Data\shape the degree of exceeding the specified speed limit is displayed (up to +0 km/h - green, up to + 20 km/h - yellow, over - red). The speed limit is read from the semantics of object 32212 Movement speed. The current speed at the point is read from the fourth measurement at the point.

    In the new version a support of the four-dimensional metric of objects for recording into coordinates of a measurement point of an arbitrary value in the form of a floating point number or integers has been added. When importing and exporting SHP, 4D records containing fields X, Y, Z (height) and M (dimension) fields are processed. The specification of the SXF format in a binary and text (TXF) form has been expanded. Support of 4-dimensional metric of objects has been added when importing and exporting SXF and TXF formats.

    The task "Select object" has been improved. The displaying, editing and deleting of four-dimensional metrics of objects on the "Metrics" bookmark has been added. This characteristic has an integer or real value representation. Saving of four-dimensional metric into file of TXT format has been added. Displaying complex objects with a large number of contours and points in the dialog has been accelerated.


    The "Map Editor" for creating objects with the input of coordinates from the keyboard has been improved. There is added a support for input of four-dimensional coordinates with measurements at a point as a floating point number or a pair of integer values.

    Support of multipoint object has been added. A multipoint object consists of a set of points with two-dimensional, three-dimensional, or four-dimensional coordinates and common attributes (semantics). A multipoint object is displayed as dot signs placed at each point of the object's metric.

  • 30.09.2020 In the GIS "Operator" for Linux the multiplatform reliable scalable architecture is implemented
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Operator" SE version 13.2 has been developed for OS Astra Linux SE and OS Zarya. The new version is built on a multi-platform multithreaded core for Linux, QNX, Android, MS Windows with support for Intel/AMD, Elbrus, ARM, PowerPC, SPARC, MIPS and others processors. To improve the reliability of the software, numerous automated functional tests have been developed, the code has been optimized using text analyzers and performance evaluation on a multi-core architecture. The list of types of processed data has been expanded: data from geoportals, multidimensional databases, pyramids of tiles BIR, GPKG, multiscale packed maps MAPZ, MPTZ and others. The new version of the GIS "Operator" SE is submitted on certification in the certification system for information security requirements by the 2nd level of undeclared possibilities.

    In the "Navigator 3D" task, the list of formats of imported models for displaying accurate and realistic tiled 3D terrain models has been expanded. Support was added for import of models from the OBJ format into a database of three-dimensional models of DB3D format. 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.

    The algorithm for generating the titles to objects on a three-dimensional terrain model has been improved. Creation of 3D-titles is carried out by means of fonts in format SDF (Signed Distance Field). The use of SDF fonts allows accelerating the display of a three-dimensional terrain model by using a single texture with a symbols atlas when creating titles for objects and provides a better visual perception of the text. Thanks to automatic smoothing of symbols borders the text, created with the new technology is free from the disadvantage of jagging along the edges of symbols, and remains visually smooth at rotating and scaling in wide ranges. This increases the readability of the titles and makes working with the 3D model more convenient.

    Support was added of the multiscale objects having the several copies of a contour with different details of points. Additional contours are formed for smaller scales of display - 1/4 1/16, 1/64 from base scale of a map and are recorded into the object metrics together with the main contour. When compressing the map, those contours of objects that are closer to the current display scale will be automatically displayed. This speeds up the display of complex objects and makes the image of the terrain more visual. At any editing of the map and when performing calculations by the metric of the object, the main contour of the multiscale object is processed. Objects are one of the elements of a multiscale map that changes its view when changing the display scale. Application of multiscale maps in packed MPTZ project allows to reduce number of created scales (layers) of maps in system of storage, finishing and application of topographic and geodetic information.

    The appearance of the dialogs "Create map", "View Passport", "Standard transformation", "Data list", "Import from KML", "Import from SHP" has been improved. In the "Save as ..." mode, the ability of saving in MPTZ format has been added. In the task "Map Editor" the ability was added to customize the number of active models and created symbols.

    GIS "Operator" SE is a universal domestic geographic information system for power structures. The program is intended for accumulation, the storage, the automated processing and displaying the data, results of calculations and the forecasts having a geospatial binding. GIS "Operator" contains tools for displaying and processing vector, raster and matrix maps.

  • 28.09.2020 The "Workstation of a cadastral engineer" has built-in tools of calculation in a linear coordinate system
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of cadastral engineer" version 13.5.1 has been released. For processing results of the measurements presented in a linear coordinate system, the new modes using the 4D-metric (X, Y, Н, M) of objects have been added. Tools of support of linear coordinate system are intended for execution of calculations along linear object - a route based on information about linear measurements. A linear measurement contains the value of distance measured along the route from its first point (the origin of the linear coordinate system) to the location you are looking for.

    In the process of calculations there are performed the calculation by linear measurements of spatial coordinates (X, Y, H) and displaying the results of calculations on a map in the form of picket (a point sign) or a segment (a linear sign). Linear coordinate systems are widely used in the road and transport industry for describing the properties of an object and events along the route. For example, "Breakdown of a regular bus at 38 km of the M4 highway" or "A defect in the pipeline from 3458 to 3461 meters was found".

    The measurement is stored in the M coordinate and contains the measured distance in meters from the first point to the desired one in the route. The M coordinate of the route must be formed before using the linear coordinate system. For its formation the "Route calibration" mode is intended. There are provided a simple calibration and calibration taking into account the division of the object by kilometer marks. For creating pickets on the map based on the results of linear measurements, the "Placing pickets along the route" mode is intended. The calculation of the coordinates of pickets is supported by measurements specified in the dialog or from a file of CSV format. The "Placing segments along a route" mode provides drawing on the map of linear objects - segments, limited by two pickets.

    The new version of the program is available on the website in the Download section.

    The task of importing navigation data in GPX format has been improved. When recording a track, a linear object with a four-dimensional metric (latitude, longitude, height, time) is formed on the map. The time field is recorded for each point in the form of two 4-byte integers YYYYMMDD and HHMMSS. The values are selected from the "time" node, for example:

    The task of importing navigation data of NMEA-0183 format has been improved. When recording a track, a linear object with a four-dimensional metric (latitude, longitude, height, speed) is formed on the map. The speed field is recorded as a floating point number in km/h. The value is selected from the velocity field and converted from knots to km/h (multiplied by 1.852).

    Support of multipoint object has been added. A multipoint object consists of a set of points with two-dimensional, three-dimensional, or four-dimensional coordinates and common attributes (semantics). When exporting to SHP, a multipoint object is written with the MULTIPOINTZ or MULTIPOINT type. When importing SHP, a multipoint object is formed from records with type the MULTIPOINT, MULTIPOINTZ and MULTIPOINTM. A multipoint object is displayed as dot signs placed at each point of the object's metric.

    n the application "Geodesy editor" the tools of calculations based on a linear coordinate system have been added. To determine the parameters of a linear coordinate system, a 4D metric of an extended linear object - a route is used. The 4D metric (X,Y,H,M) of a linear object contains the value of measuring the distance on the ground along the axis of the route from the first point that is the origin. The measurement is stored in the M coordinate and contains the distance in meters from the first point to the current point of the route metric. The M coordinate of the route must be formed prior to the beginning of using the linear coordinate system. In the process of calculations, the calculation of spatial coordinates (X,Y,H) by linear measurements (M) is performed and the calculation results are displayed on the map in the form of a picket (point mark) or a segment (linear mark), limited by two pickets.
    To prepare a route for calculations and perform calculations in a linear coordinate system, the following new modes have been developed: "Calibration of the route" (provides filling of the M coordinate of the route), "Arrangement of pickets along the route" (drawing the pickets onto the map by on the results of linear measurements), "Arrangement of segments along route "(drawing the segments bounded by two pickets on the map).

    In the dialog "Data list of map" the mode "Set the border by map objects for a group of heights, layers and qualities" has been added. It allows you to set a border for each matrix according to the object assigned to it from the selected objects on the map. It is possible to set a border for one matrix by a multi-contour object formed from selected objects. The mode also allows you to set a border for all matrixes of the group by one selected object. The mode is called by the item "Set border by ... map object" of the context menu of the "Matrix" bookmark.

    A new view of programmable signs has been added for demonstrating the display of linear objects with a four-dimensional metric. Measurement at a point can be displayed in the color of a line segment, taking into account whether the value falls within the specified range or by another algorithm. In the example on the map \Data\shape the degree of exceeding the specified speed limit is displayed (up to +0 km/h - green, up to + 20 km/h - yellow, over - red). The speed limit is read from the semantics of object 32212 Movement speed. The current speed at the point is read from the fourth measurement at the point.

  • 21.09.2020 GIS ToolKit Active expands the possibilities of processing and analyzing spatial data
    In KB "Panorama", toolset the GIS ToolKit Active version 13.0.2 has been developed for creating geoinformation systems with the free licence in any programming environment that supports ActiveX technology, for example, Visual Studio. In the new version, the GIS core has been updated, in which the possibilities for the exchange of spatial data and their analysis are expanded. The toolkit allows you to display cartographic schemes created in the GIS "Panorama". Cartographical schemes can contain insets of maps of various territories, inserts of images and texts. Map insets are displayed at their own scale and can have their own classifier of conventional symbols.

    New types of objects semantics are added: semantics the numerical formula and semantics the symbolical formula. New types complement the programmable semantics the formula, the value of which is calculated in the connected iml-libraries. For new types of computed semantics, mathematical or logical expressions are defined that are executed without programming. For the numerical formula in semantics description the mathematical expression (formula) is indicated that contains numbers, mathematical operations, links to the values of semantics of object, its area, perimetre, coordinates of the first point in meters or degrees, coordinates of the geometrical center of object and other properties. For example, the following operations can be used as mathematical operations: +, -, *, /, max, min, arm, sin, cos, tg, ctg, abs, sqrt2, sqrt3, pow2, pow3.

    In the new version, the use of the packed MPTZ project is available. A packed project may include a comprehensive representation of the territory in the form of vector maps of different levels of detail, rasters (terrain images) in the RSW format, elevation matrixes and matrixes of qualitative characteristics of the terrain, insets from the same data, the links to data from the GIS Server and from geoportals by various protocols. All data sets are packed into one file of MPTZ format. Links to external data are saved as a packed INI file. Maps and classifiers are compressed in 3-4 times, matrixes are compressed in 3-5 times, rasters are compressed in 3-10 time. Images of terrain in RSW and a matrix in MTW and MTQ contain 4 levels of data presentation - the most detailed base, generalised in the 1/4 scale, generalised in the 1/16 scale, generalised in the 1/64 scale. When displayed, the closest level of data representation is selected. For formation of the MPTZ project, it is necessary to open in GIS "Panorama" the corresponding maps, rasters, matrixes, data from the GIS Servers and geoportals. Then to execute customizing the display order, ranges of visibility, palette and other properties. To write to MPTZ, select the menu item File\Save As\Packed Project. If the open data has already been compressed (mapz, mtw, rsw), then the created project will have approximately the same size as the total amount of the initial data. Editing and exporting to other formats is not available for the MPTZ project. Speed of displaying the MPTZ project is about the same one, as for the original uncompressed data. The speed of data exchange, packed into an MPTZ project is increasing by a factor of 5 - 20, taking into account the decrease in the number of transferred files (for example, the original map can consist of several thousand files). The size of the MPTZ file and the number of sets in the project is not limited.

  • 18.09.2020 Training materials have been developed for the creation of three-dimensional maps of the operational-tactical situation
    In KB "Panorama" the training materials on formation of three-dimensional maps of operational-tactical situation with use of the updated classifier operator.rsc and the library of 3D-models of military equipment operator.p3d have been prepared. The tutorials include an example of data project. It contains a map fragment of the operational-tactical situation, created with use of the operator.rsc classifier of conventional symbols of operational situation, which meets the requirements of the KEUZ standard, and the operator.p3d library of 3D models of weapons and military equipment, a topographic background, elevation data and terrain images.

    In the new version of library of three-dimensional symbols operator.p3d of the classifier operator.rsc the simplified models of the Russian military equipment have been added for display on distances far from the observer. This approach increases the speed of displaying a three-dimensional terrain model on maps of the operational situation, saturated with equipment. At the same time, the near view of the 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.

    Creation of a 3D-kind of signatures is carried out now by means of fonts in format SDF (Signed Distance Field). Application of SDF-fonts allows to accelerate display of three-dimensional model of district at the expense of use of a uniform structure with the atlas of symbols at creation of signatures to objects and provides the best visual perception of the text. Thanks to automatic smoothing of borders of symbols the text created on new technology, is deprived such lack as gradualness along the edges of symbols, and remains visually smooth at turn and scaling in wide ranges. It raises readership of signatures and does work with three-dimensional model more convenient.

    A new kind of 3D-titles has been added into the operator.p3d library. Creation of 3D-titles now is carried out by means of fonts in format SDF (Signed Distance Field). The use of SDF fonts allows accelerating the display of a three-dimensional terrain model by using a single texture with a symbols atlas when creating titles for objects and provides a better visual perception of the text. Thanks to automatic smoothing of symbols borders the text, created with the new technology is free from the disadvantage of jagging along the edges of symbols, and remains visually smooth at rotating and scaling in wide ranges. This increases the readability of the titles and makes working with the 3D model more convenient.

    The document "Operator's guide for creating a library of 3D-models" will help, if necessary, to add your original 3D models of various objects into the existing library or create your own library of 3D symbols from scratch. You can get acquainted with the technology using the corresponding video lesson.

    Accurate and realistic three-dimensional models of entire terrain areas and individual objects, created with use of technologies of scanning or third-party 3D editors, help to make a three-dimensional map more realistic. In the "Navigator 3D" task, support for 3D tiles of spatial data in DB3D format has been added to display accurate and realistic 3D models of unlimited size. DB3D format is intended for storing and displaying pyramids of three-dimensional tiles packed together with metadata tables in SQLite format. The format is intended for storing data in pyramids of 3D tiles of various types, for example, GoogleMapsCompatible (matrix compatible with Google data in projection EPSG:3857), GoogleCrs84Quad (matrix compatible with Google data in projection EPSG:4326). The level of granularity of the data and the coverage area is not limited. Import into DB3D format is supported: 1) models in Collada (dae) format; 2) models in OBJ format; 3) models in the TLS (Agisoft Tiled Model) tile format; 4) point clouds in Agisoft OC3 format. Separate import of point clouds in LAS format. Models of these formats can be exported from Geoscan company software, the programs SketchUp, Blender, MeshLab, Maya, 3D Studio Max, SP LIRA and others.

    A detailed description of all the possibilities of creating three-dimensional terrain models is presented in the document "GIS" Panorama "ПАРБ.00046-06 Applied tasks. Building a 3D model".

  • 15.09.2020 "Workstation of an agronomist" for maintaining maps of agricultural land uses spatial databases and multiscale objects
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of agronomist" version 13.5.0 has been developed. In the new version the tools have been implemented for input and editing of the metric and attributive description of contours borders of agricultural land with use of multiscale objects and storage of information in spatial databases. "Workstation of agronomist" is the automated workstation constructed on base of the GIS Panorama Mini and the additional module "Complex of agronomical tasks". "Workstation of agronomist" includes tools that allow you to create and edit electronic maps of fields, maintain a land corded book, to work with agrochemical and satellite monitoring data, carry out thematic mapping and generate reports using customizable templates.

    The new version of "Workstation of agronomist" provides storage of description of spatial objects in a database under the control of the PostgreSQL DBMS. Objects from a database are presented in the form of the table, each record of which is linked with the corresponding object on a map. There are available the new tools of search for object of a map for the current record, movement through records, editing of records, search, filtration and sorting of data. In the form of a separate table a viewing of the detailed information for current object is possible. Additionally, the interface allows displaying images and multi-line text in a separate screen form.

    The program supports multiscale objects having several metric descriptions with different details of the borders of the agricultural land contour. An additional metric for smaller display scales is generated automatically by the generalization method. This approach significantly increases the speed of displaying objects with complex metrics and makes the map clearer when scaling on-screen.

    Multiscale objects are the basis for creating multiscale maps that change their detail depending on the current scale. The use of such maps in a packed MPTZ project can reduce the number of created units of spatial information's storage.
    A mechanism has been developed for drawing titles linked with map objects, which, when the map image is enlarged, are "pulled" to the object. The distance between the object and the title becomes up to two times less than when scaling without using this technique.
    The possibility of multi-user work with access control through a connection to the GIS Server allows you to create scalable distributed information systems. Conducting passports of fields is carried out in structure of information base the GIS "Panorama AGRO" that provides full compatibility and joint use of these products.

    The new version of the program is available on the website in the Download section.

  • 11.09.2020 GIS WebService SE implements the technology of adaptive digital representation of the territory
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebService SE version 13.6.0 has been developed. In the new version a support of the automated dynamic updating the structure of digital representation of territory has been expanded. With the development of technologies of digitizing the economy and management systems, approaches to the digital representation of the territory are rapidly changing for different tasks. The composition of classified objects and their attributes, conventional symbols, distribution by layers and other properties are clarified.
    For the continuous reliable operation of information systems, changes must be processed automatically with the update of transmission protocols, access rights, the structure of displayed data and their graphical representation. The logical structure of the digital representation of the territory is contained in the digital classifiers of vector layers created by types of economic activity and levels of territory management - urban planning, cadastral, logistics, communication, and so on.
    When updating the content of the digital classifier, the GIS WebService SE can automatically update xsd-schemes describing the structure of published data and protocols for publishing information, the composition of the legend for interactive layer management and other settings. The scheme contains descriptions of layers, codes of objects, semantics and other metadata necessary for identification of objects on a layer. Dynamic and fixed schemes are supported. Fixed schemas are required for defining the non-automated rules.
    The new version has improved the reliability of working with xml settings files included into the service. When editing setup files, a copy of the settings is generated. It will allow to avoid problems at an insufficient disk space. The service has added monitoring of free disk space for setup files, temporary data, event log, RAM. In case of lack of RAM or free space on the hard disk, or when the limit values are reached, the service informs the administrator about this.
    A new query has been added - displaying the connection parameters to the map, which is a database (dbm). The request for building thematic maps has been improved. Possibility of creating thematic maps by linear objects has been implemented. When forming a thematic map, information about an object (semantics, metrics) is fully saved. The request was added for calculation of the area of object taking into account the matrix of heights. In the program the diagnostic output of messages has been expanded.
    The service supports distributed access to data based on REST requests. All requests are divided into 16 groups. Access to each group of requests can be set in the users.xml setup file. It is now possible to restrict the user by the scale of the viewed data, editing, searching, copying data, executing spatial requests, and much more. Names of groups correspond to documentation sections to the service.
    GIS WebService SE supports all international standards (OGC WFS, WFS-T, WMS, WMTS, WCS), which are used to transfer and display spatial data. The program implements the ability to issue tiles for any user or local coordinate system. The application is implemented on Windows and Linux platforms and is compatible with Apache, IIS and nginx web servers.

    The new version of the program and documentation are posted on the website in the Download section.

  • 08.09.2020 GIS Webserver SE provides complex representation and processing of spatial databases in the form of vector maps and in a tabular form
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebServer SE version 5.7.0 has been developed for the Astra Linux, Windows, CentOS operating systems. In the new version the "Spatial database" component has been added. The component displays in the table the information about map objects, the cartographic representation of which is created from the spatial database. It is possible to carry out search of map objects, choosing records in the table; to carry out automatic search of the table's records when searching for objects in a map; to filter the table with simultaneous search of objects in a map. Spatial data for working with the database are published on the GIS WebService SE service, obtaining information from the database is performed through requests to the service. The connection with the spatial database is carried out by the GIS WebService SE service. In the administration module, the user interface settings have been extended. You can display a welcome message to the client, customize the content of information about objects, the way to highlight objects in the map.

    In the new version, the GIS WebToolKit SE Web application development toolkit is enhanced, which extends the capabilities of GIS WebServer SE and can be integrated into other information systems. Access to data (images, vector maps, and terrain information) is provided by Web services using generally accepted OGC protocols and ISO standards. The GIS WebService SE service (OGC WMS/WMTS) provides spatial information in the form of graphic images. As a digital elevation model, various types of elevation data are used: matrixes (in SRTM, GeoTIFF, IMG, MTW formats), TIN-models, point cloud and others. The service provides the ability to publish three-dimensional terrain models unloaded in DB3D format. These models can be obtained from files of the COLLADA type, as well as from photorealistic three-dimensional models of unlimited size (TLS, OC3).

    As a source of spatial data, the Databank of digital maps and Remote Sensing Data can be used. It provides the collection, storage, search and delivery of spatial data in exchange formats, displaying the state of the data bank in the form of maps-schemes, and the automated formation and updating of geo-covers.
    GIS WebServer SE is used in the construction of closed corporate systems to ensure the protection of data having a security classification or a trade secret. GIS WebServer SE is certified for Level 2 of absence of undeclared capabilities. The new version of the program expands the application's capabilities in solving problems of analysis, management and long-term planning of the territories development. GIS WebServer SE is implemented using the toolkit of GIS WebToolKit SE, which can be used in development tools that use the JavaScript.

  • 03.09.2020 Training materials on the development of user web component by using tools of GIS WebToolKit SE and SDK GIS WebService SE have been prepared
    In KB "Panorama" the training materials have been prepared for developers of web-components in the GIS WebToolKit SE environment. Development tools the GIS WebToolKit SE and SDK GIS WebServiсe SE are used for creation of client-server web applications. In the documentation "GIS WebServiсe SE the system programmer's guide" in the chapter "Development and connection of libraries for executing extended REST requests" the order of creation and use of web-component is described.

    Web-components can be of two types. The first type processes data on the client without accessing external services. For example, calculation of the area and length of object by its coordinates in the GeoJSON format, received on WFS-request from another component. Such component is implemented as JavaScript on the client. Another type of component requires interaction with a web service to process large amounts of spatial data located on the server and available for reading and updating by many users simultaneously.

    For example, the server hosts matrix and vector geo-covers with relief over large areas. It is necessary to determine the height of a point by its coordinates on the ground. GIS WebService SE can use the functions of the MAPAPI interface, which provide automatic analysis of data available at a given point, selection of a source with the highest accuracy to determine the height at a point, performing geodetic calculations and interpolation of values by the surrounding objects. To take advantage of these tools, a new REST request is added into the web service on the basis of a set of SDK libraries written in C ++. SDK GIS WebServiсe SE automates analysis of request parametres, loads library and a method for its processing, provides access to the spatial layers published on service, and forms the service response (xml, json and others). On the web client side in JavaScript, input of request parametres and displaying the result are implemented.

    The updated documentation uses examples to show how to add a new request to the GIS WebService SE and call it from the GIS WebServer SE side. The examples are implemented using the GIS WebToolKit SE JavaScript client scripts library and run in a web browser.

    In the first example, a button is added into the control panel to invoke the panel "Get Geo-Coverage value at a point". When you select a point on the map, the height value of the specified point is displayed in the table. Data exchange is performed via the GetCoveragePoint REST request added into the GIS WebService SE. The request is processed by a custom library written in C ++ and connected to the service.

    In the second example, a button is added to the control panel to invoke the panel "Building a heat map". On the panel the parameters of for building a heat map are set. Clicking on the "Build" button will display the heat map as a separate layer. Building a heat map is performed on the server using the BuildHeatMap REST request. The lifetime of the layer is determined by the request parameters or the service settings.

    GIS WebService SE supports all international standards (OGC WFS, WFS-T, WMS, WMTS, WCS), which are used to transfer and display spatial data. The program implements the ability to issue tiles in a user or standard coordinate system. The application is implemented on Windows and Linux platforms and is compatible with Apache, IIS and nginx web servers.

    Training materials are available on the website in the Documentation section.

  • 31.08.2020 In the "Workstation of urban planner", the accounting of urban planning documentation is carried out with reference to the duty cadastral map
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of urban planner" version 13.5.0 is developed. In the new version there is added an automatic formation of registration number of the document by a technique developed by Minstroy of Russia in accordance with the Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation № 279 dated March, 13th 2020г "On information support of urban planning activity". Provides accounting of urban planning information, documents and materials in accordance with the technical requirements for maintaining the GISOGD registers. Urban planning information is placed in specialized sections of the ISOGD with the ability to establish a spatial reference of documents on the duty cadastral map.
    In addition to structured accounting of documents and materials, the program allows you to accumulate information about land plots, real estate, premises, engineering networks and other infrastructure facilities. Boundaries and cadastral information about accounting objects are created on the basis of electronic XML documents provided from the Unified State Register of Real Estate, using the mode "Reading the cadastral plan of the territory and updating the map".
    The new version implements support for the XML scheme used for formation of the XML document - an extract about a zone with special conditions of using the territories, the territorial zone, the territory of the cultural heritage site, the territory of priority social and economic development, the zone of territorial development in the Russian Federation, gambling zone, forestry, forest park, a specially protected natural area, a special economic zone, a hunting ground, a coastline (border of a water object), a land surveying project in electronic form. Storage and collective use of the cadastral map located in relational DBMS are supported. To provide access to the contents of spatial databases (DB), the "Open a map DBM" mode is intended.
    Urban planning information about accounting objects is associated with the register of documents and materials ISOGD. The established spatial-logical links between the registries provide a quick and visual search for the necessary information. The appearance of buttons located on the control panel of urban planning tasks has been updated with the use of a single corporate style "Panorama".
    To get acquainted with the capabilities of the "Workstation of urban planner", a demo example has been developed, which includes a project of maps and a database of urban planning information, documents and materials. For a remote connection, you must use the IP addresses and parameters specified in the documentation.

  • 24.08.2020 In the "Workstation of cadastral engineer" the tools of maintaining a cadastral map and preparation of schemes and drawings have been improved
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of cadastral engineer" version 13.5.0 has been developed. In the new version for processing cadastral information provided in the form of electronic XML documents from the EGRN, the algorithm for reading data and updating the cadastral map has been changed. The updates are aimed at improving the identification of cadastral objects and increasing the speed of data processing when updating an existing map. Controls were added for updating the cadastral map, including: updating, replacing and adding objects. When updating, a search for existing objects is performed and their metrics and semantics are updated with up-to-date information. When replacing, the map is cleared and filled with new relevant data. When adding to existing objects, new actual data are added.

    Storage and collective use of the cadastral map located in a relational DBMS is supported. For providing access to contents of spatial databases (DB) the mode "Open a map DBM" is intended. To display spatial data (table, view or the result of an SQL query) in the form of a cartographic image, a file of DBM format is used, which contains a description of the parameters of a digital map.

    In EGRN for identifying external contours of a multi-contour land plot, the cadastral number of the land plot and registration number of a contour are provided, and for zones and borders, the designations of external contours are not provided. This feature does not allow correctly to set a correspondence between objects that characterize external contours on the updated map and information in the XML file. The new version of the program implements an algorithm for identifying multi-contour cadastral objects for land plots, territorial and special zones, boundaries of territories and natural objects with automatic generation of the registration number of the outer contour. Indexing of objects of the updated map by identification data (cadastral or registration number and registration number of the contour) has been implemented. Map indexation increases speed of searching existing objects for their updating, especially at updating the map containing more than a hundred thousand objects.

    New possibilities have been added in the dialog "Forming the signatures of characteristic points of borders". To identify characteristic points of borders, a copying of the semantics values of the initial cadastral objects into the semantics of the points has been implemented. For variability of placing the signatures of the created dot signs characterising borders of cadastral objects, formation of signatures vertically and along a bisector of angle of adjacent metrics segments of initial object is provided.

    The new version of the program is available on the website in the Download section.

  • 21.08.2020 Bank of spatial data has been supplemented with a map of the Italian Republic

  • 19.08.2020 In the Professional vectorizer "Panorama-editor" the tools for creating multiscale digital maps of terrain have been expanded
    In KB "Panorama" the professional vectorizer "Panorama-editor" version 13.5.0 has been developed. In the new version of the program the complex of automated generalization of digital topographic maps of scales from 1: 25 000 to 1: 100 000 has been improved. In the mode of relief generalization, the quality of building the overlap matrix of contour lines has been improved, which is used to automatically generate additional contours. Additional contours are saved in areas free from overlapping the nearby contours. There is added an automatic increase in the area of small closed contour lines of hill tops that have elevation marks inside the areas bounded by small contours. In the mode of generalization of areal hydrography, the quality of automatic transformation of fragments of areal rivers into linear ones and the quality of matching new linear rivers with areal vegetation and soils have been improved.

    Support was added of the multiscale objects having the several copies of a contour with different details of points. Additional contours are formed for smaller scales of display - 1/4 1/16, 1/64 from base scale of a map and are recorded into the object metrics together with the main contour. When compressing the map, those contours of objects that are closer to the current display scale will be automatically displayed. This speeds up the display of complex objects and makes the image of the terrain more visual. At any editing of the map and when performing calculations by the metric of the object, the main contour of the multiscale object is processed.

    Multiscale objects are formed in the Map Sorting procedure. If for sorting the option of Generalization of multiscale objects has been selected, then for the objects of classifier RSC that have the Multiscale property, additional contours by a generalisation method will be built. Multiscale objects are one of the elements of a multiscale map that changes its view when changing the display scale. Application of multiscale maps in packed MPTZ project allows to reduce number of created scales (layers) of maps in system of storage, finishing and application of topographic and geodetic information.

    Support has been added for drawing the titles linked with objects of a map, which at increase in the image of a map are pulled to the object. To do this, after entering the title text, you must place the cursor on the conditional binding point of the title and press CTRL + space, then move the cursor to the first point of the title placement and press the left mouse button. If the title is not horizontal then it is necessary to enter the second point to indicate the direction of the title placement. At increasing the image of a map the point of the title placement will be pulled to a binding point - the distance between them will be approximately in 1,5 - 2 times less, than at scaling the title without a binding.

    The block of geodesy and cadastral tasks has been improved. The mode "Reading the cadastral plan of the territory and updating the map" supports the XML-scheme extract_about_zones_v01 - an extract about zone. The list of conventional symbols for displaying cadastral objects characterizing the boundaries of a water object has been expanded. A linear object "WATER OBJECT ZONE" has been added into the survey.v5.rsc classifier to describe coastlines of reservoirs, large lakes, seas and other water objects, the border of which is not completely described, but in the form of separate fragments. The algorithm for reading spatial data for discrete cadastral objects has been updated. If there is information about the radius, the object of real estate is created a point one based on the coordinates of the center. In this case, the radius value is written into the semantics of the object. Collective use of "Base of cadastral works" of SQLite format was implemented, which contains information about cadastral engineers, contracts on execution of works, customers of cadastral works and other information. In program options the possibility has been added to choose the location of the file «Base of cadastral works» when network access. For convenience of identifying the information in headings of dialogs for working with "Base of cadastral works" the path to the database file is displayed. The mode "Editing attributes of a cadastral object" has been improved. The exchange of information about points of the reference boundary network with the dialog "Land Survey plan" has been implemented. In addition to information on the geodetic basis, there is provided an exchange of information about the list of documents used in the preparation of the survey plan and on the initial parts of the land plot.

    The "View map control log" dialog called in the "Map Editor" task has been improved. There is simplified a work with message protocols generated for several maps by the task "Checking of adjacent sheets objects". Into dialog of viewing the results of control a possibility of a choosing a map from the list has been added. The list contains only those maps for which a message log has been generated.

  • 18.08.2020 The map of the Republic of Croatia has been updated on the geoportal "Bank of spatial data"
    On the geoportal "Bank of spatial data", the map of the Republic of Croatia, formed according to OpenStreetMap data, has been updated. Source data were obtained from Geofabrik website. For work with a map it is possible to 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.rsc). 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 and images".

  • 14.08.2020 In GIS "Panorama" 13 the tools of displaying and editing spatial databases have been expanded
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" version 13.5.0 has been developed. To work with the attributes of spatial databases displayed in the form of vector maps, a dialog has been added for viewing and editing the tables that are in the PostgreSQL database with the PostGIS extension. When working with a table, the following modes are available: search a map object for the current record, moving through records, editing a record, search, filtering, sorting of data. Viewing detailed information for the current record (object) is available as a separate form that displays a list of object attributes. Fields containing images and multi-line text are displayed in a separate form when such fields are selected.
    Parameters of database connection are saved in a file with the DBM extension, which has an XML structure. The settings provide for entering the name of the DBM file, the method and parameters of connecting to the database, a creating the lists of displayed and edited objects and their semantic characteristics (attributes).

    In the "Navigator 3D" task, the list of formats of imported models has been expanded for displaying accurate and realistic 3D terrain models. Support of import of models from OBJ format into a database of three-dimensional models of DB3D format has been added. Algorithm for generating the titles to objects on a three-dimensional terrain model has been improved. Creation of 3D-signatures is carried out by means of fonts in format SDF (Signed Distance Field). The use of SDF fonts allows accelerating the display of a three-dimensional terrain model by using a single texture with a symbols atlas when creating titles for objects and provides a better visual perception of the text. Thanks to automatic smoothing of symbols borders the text is free from the disadvantage of jagging along the edges of symbols, and remains visually smooth at rotating and scaling in wide ranges.

    The complex of programs for building and processing the road graph has been improved. "At cost" radio button has been added into the "Route building" dialog. The route can be built using the semantics "Edge cost" and "Reverse edge cost".

    The program for building thematic maps has been improved: there are added a construction of a histogram for irregular ranges of classification of statistical data, a manual editing of range boundaries, an automatic exclusion of empty legend elements (ranges), a replacement of large numbers (12345678, 345678) with reduced ones (12 mil., 346 thous.).

    The task "Demonstration of photos of the terrain with binding to the coordinates of the survey" has been added, intended for displaying photos of the terrain along the selected linear object on the map. Photos in JPEG format containing GPS coordinates of the survey location in EXIF-tags can be used as initial data for the task. Such photographs can be obtained using devices (cameras, mobile phones) equipped with a GPS module. It is possible to use the survey project together with the photos. The survey project is made in the form of a text file and contains a list of photographs files with the coordinates of the point and the date of the survey. When the survey project arrives, the presence of a coordinate label in the file of the image is not required. It is possible to save photographing points onto the map as point objects, in the semantics of which a link to a graphic image file, date and time of survey, camera model and other information is entered.

    In the applied task "Report Designer" tools have been added for creating and processing duplicated map fragments (callouts). The callout is intended to show an enlarged images of a map fragment containing a set of densely located objects. On the the main image of the map, the callout looks like a rectangular red contour, which limits the area of enlarged map fragment. There are added the modes for deleting and editing insert frames, providing automatic synchronization of callouts images. Deleting an insert removes the corresponding callout. When you move, scale the map within an insert, or resize the frame of the insert, the corresponding callout is automatically rebuilt.

    Support was added of the multiscale objects having the multiple copies of a contour with different details of points. Additional contours are formed for smaller scales of display - 1/4 1/16, 1/64 from base scale of a map and are recorded into the object metrics together with the main contour. When compressing the map, those contours of objects that are closer to the current display scale will be automatically displayed. This speeds up the display of complex objects and makes the image of the terrain more visual. At any editing of the map and when performing calculations by the metric of the object, the main contour of the multiscale object is processed. Multiscale objects are formed in the Map Sorting procedure. If for sorting the option of Generalization of multiscale objects has been selected, then for the objects of classifier RSC that have the Multiscale property, additional contours by a generalisation method will be built.

    Multiscale objects are one of the elements of a multiscale map that changes its view when changing the display scale. Application of multiscale maps in packed MPTZ project allows to reduce number of created scales (layers) of maps in system of storage, finishing and application of topographic and geodetic information.

    Support has been added for drawing the titles linked with objects of a map, which at increase in the image of a map are pulled to the object. To do this, after entering the title text, you must place the cursor on the conditional binding point of the title and press CTRL + space, then move the cursor to the first point of the title placement and press the left mouse button. If the title is not horizontal then it is necessary to enter the second point to indicate the direction of the title placement. At increasing the image of a map the point of the title placement will be pulled to a binding point - the distance between them will be approximately in 1,5 - 2 times less, than at scaling the title without a binding.

    The complex of automated generalization of digital topographic maps of scales from 1: 25 000 to 1: 100 000 has been improved. In the mode of relief generalization, the quality of building the overlap matrix of contour lines has been improved, which is used to automatically generate additional contours. Additional contours are saved in areas free from overlapping the nearby contours. There is added an automatic increase in the area of small closed contour lines of hill tops that have elevation marks inside the areas bounded by small contours. In the mode of generalization of areal hydrography, the quality of automatic transformation of fragments of areal rivers into linear ones and the quality of matching new linear rivers with areal vegetation and soils have been improved.
    The block of geodesy and cadastral tasks has been improved. The mode "Reading the cadastral plan of the territory and updating the map" supports the XML-scheme extract_about_zones_v01 - an extract about zone. The list of conventional symbols for displaying cadastral objects characterizing the boundaries of a water object has been expanded. A linear object "WATER OBJECT ZONE" has been added into the survey.v5.rsc classifier to describe coastlines of reservoirs, large lakes, seas and other water objects, the border of which is not completely described, but in the form of separate fragments. The algorithm for reading spatial data for discrete cadastral objects has been updated. If there is information about the radius, the object of real estate is created a point one based on the coordinates of the center. In this case, the radius value is written into the semantics of the object. Collective use of "Base of cadastral works" of SQLite format was implemented, which contains information about cadastral engineers, contracts on execution of works, customers of cadastral works and other information. In program options the possibility has been added to choose the location of the file «Base of cadastral works» when network access. For convenience of identifying the information in headings of dialogs for working with "Base of cadastral works" the path to the database file is displayed. The mode "Editing attributes of a cadastral object" has been improved. The exchange of information about points of the reference boundary network with the dialog "Land Survey plan" has been implemented. In addition to information on the geodetic basis, there is provided an exchange of information about the list of documents used in the preparation of the survey plan and on the initial parts of the land plot.

    The "View results" dialog called in the "Map Editor" task has been improved. There is simplified a work with message protocols generated for several maps by the task "Checking of adjacent sheets objects". Into dialog of viewing the results of control a possibility of a choosing a map from the list has been added. The list contains only those maps for which a message log has been generated.

  • 29.07.2020 GIS WebServer SE simulates the movement of three-dimensional objects along routes
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebServer SE version 5.6 has been developed for operating systems Astra Linux, Windows, CentOS. In the new version, "3D map" was supplemented with the "Dynamic scenario" mode. Scenario allows you to simulate the movement of active models of objects along planned routes with a preset speed. You can pause and resume movement, change the speed of the models. Demo example "Traffic in the city of Noginsk" is posted on the site. On a three-dimensional map of Noginsk, various transport models move along the specified trajectories. Creation of scenarios of mobile objects is carried out in the GIS "Panorama". The spatial data for work of scenario is published on service the GIS WebService SE. The possibilities of measurements in the "3D map" are expanded, there is added a calculating the area of an arbitrary figure built by the points of a three-dimensional model. The perimeter, area and internal angle of the measurement object are calculated. The vertices of the figure are marked on the map and can be moved or removed by the user. When constructing a flat object, the slope to the earth's surface is additionally calculated. The plugin "Diagram" has been added which carries out building the circular diagrams by semantics of map objects at creation of thematic layers.

    In the new version, the GIS WebToolKit SE Web application development toolkit is enhanced, which extends the capabilities of GIS WebServer SE and can be integrated into other information systems. Access to data (images, vector maps, and terrain information) is provided by Web services using generally accepted OGC protocols and ISO standards. The GIS WebService SE service (OGC WMS/WMTS) provides spatial information in the form of graphic images. As a digital elevation model, various types of elevation data are used: matrixes (in SRTM, GeoTIFF, IMG, MTW formats), TIN-models, point cloud and others. The service provides the ability to publish three-dimensional terrain models unloaded in DB3D format. These models can be obtained from files of the COLLADA type, as well as from photorealistic three-dimensional models of unlimited size (TLS, OC3).
    As a source of spatial data, the Databank of digital maps and Remote Sensing Data can be used. It provides the collection, storage, search and delivery of spatial data in exchange formats, displaying the state of the data bank in the form of maps-schemes, and the automated formation and updating of geo-covers.
    GIS WebServer SE is used in the construction of closed corporate systems to ensure the protection of data having a security classification or a trade secret. GIS WebServer SE is certified for Level 2 of absence of undeclared capabilities. The new version of the program expands the application's capabilities in solving problems of analysis, management and long-term planning of the territories development. GIS WebServer SE is implemented using the toolkit of GIS WebToolKit SE, which can be used in development tools that use the JavaScript.

  • 21.07.2020 In the GIS ToolKit the possibilities for the exchange of spatial data have been expanded
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS ToolKit version 13.0.5 has been developed for creation of GIS applications in the environment of C ++ Builder, Delphi Embarcadero. In the new version, the GIS core has been updated, in which the possibilities of exchanging spatial data are expanded based on the use of the packed MPTZ project. A packed project may include a comprehensive representation of the territory in the form of vector maps of different levels of detail, rasters (terrain images) in the rsw format, elevation matrixes and matrixes of qualitative characteristics of the terrain, insets from the same data, the links to data from the GIS Server and from geoportals by various protocols. All data sets are packed into one file of MPTZ format. Links to external data are saved as a packed INI file. Maps and classifiers are compressed in 3-4 times, matrixes are compressed in 3-5 times, rasters are compressed in 3-10 time. Each image of terrain in RSW and a matrix in MTW and MTQ contain 4 levels of data presentation - the most detailed base, generalised in the 1/4 scale, generalised in the 1/16 scale, generalised in the 1/64 scale. When displayed, the closest level of data representation is selected. For formation of the MPTZ project, it is necessary to open in GIS "Panorama" the corresponding maps, rasters, matrixes, data from the GIS Servers and geoportals. Then to execute customizing the display order, ranges of visibility, palette and other properties. To write to MPTZ, select the menu item File\Save As\Packed Project. If the open data has already been compressed (mapz, mtw, rsw), then the created project will have approximately the same size as the total amount of the initial data. Editing and exporting to other formats is not available for the MPTZ project. Speed of displaying the MPTZ project is about the same one, as for the original uncompressed data. The speed of exchanging by packed data is increasing by 5 to 20 times, taking into account the reduction in the number of transferred files (for example, the original map map may consist of several thousand files). The size of the MPTZ file and the number of sets in the project is not limited. In the new version the interface of the user has been improved for dialogs: "Select object", "Map contents" and "Map object search". For the "Select object" dialog, the possibilities of sorting attributes on the "Semantics" bookmark have been expanded. The data can be sorted by the code, the name of the semantic characteristic, by the value of the characteristic and in the order established in the classifier for this type of map object. The selection of the sorting type can be performed through the "Sort" context menu.
    In the dialogs "Map contents" and "Map object search" the list of objects is presented as a table with the columns "Name", "Code", "Character code", "Key", "Type". The ordering of the objects list by the values of elements in any column is provided, which is performed by clicking on the column header. Search of an object in the list can be performed by the value of an element in any column.
    There is optimized a reading and editing of sets of vector maps with a volume of several GB, located on the GIS Server. Data display speed has been increased.
    The toolkit consists of a set of visual components (supplied in source code) and a GIS core API for direct access to spatial data. The toolkit is intended for the development of client-server and desktop 32-bit and 64-bit applications that require processing and visualization of spatial data. Spatial data can be located both at the workplace (direct access to data), and in the local network or the Internet (components of access to the GIS Server or data exchange using international protocols are used).

  • 20.07.2020 GIS WebService SE for the operating system "Alt 8 SP" on the platform "Elbrus" has been developed
    KB "Panorama" the GIS WebService SE version 13.5.0 has been developed for the operating system "Alt 8 SP" used in servers with the "Elbrus" processor architecture. In the new version of the service, the issuance of objects semantics in accordance with the passed list of values has been added. Support of several schemes for a layer has been implemented. This will allow to restrict and display only certain values of semantic characteristics, if objects have a lot of them, or to set the order of their display in GIS WebServer SE and other clients of the service.

    The service's capabilities for working with databases and 3D objects have been expanded. A new request has been added a for displaying metadata for SQLite databases. In order to reduce the load on the server, it is possible to receive the list of tracks as one file, rather than sending each request separately. The format of the GetLayers request output has been expanded. Ability was added to display maps with dimensions exceeding 180 degrees (for example, a map of Russia, where the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug is located on the right). User interface of service's administrator has been improved. Possibility was added to set styles for layers and to view statistics of service's work. Uniform style and appearance of administrator for all operating systems has been implemented.
    GIS WebService SE supports all international standards (OGC WFS, WFS-T, WMS, WMTS, WCS), which are used to transfer and display spatial data. The program implements the ability to issue tiles for any user or local coordinate system. The application is implemented on Windows and Linux platforms and is compatible with Apache, IIS and nginx web servers.

    The new version of the program and documentation are posted on the website in the Download section.

  • 16.07.2020 In the GIS "Operator" for OS Astra Linux SE, the speed of displaying spatial data of large volume from distributed storages has been increased
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Operator" SE version 13 for OS Astra Linux SE (Release "Smolensk") has been developed. In the new version a reading and editing of sets of vector maps in volume in of several GB located on the GIS Server were optimised. At the initial opening, the data is cached on the client side and then the program will work with the local maps. This reduces the load onto the network when large numbers of users work with data hosted remotely. The loaded information is displayed using updated rendering algorithms, increasing the display speed.
    The task of importing data of 3D model from TLS/OC3/DAE formats into DB3D format has been added. The TLS format is a binary file that stores the coordinates of textured 3D models with support for levels of detail, the models have a tiled structure. This format was developed by Agisoft company and implemented in the Agisoft Photoscan software product. The Sputnik software of the GeoScan group of companies works with the TLS format. The OC3 format is a binary file that stores coordinates and colors for points, which are combined into tiles distributed across levels of detail. The DAE (COLLADA) format stores a 3D model, the parameters of which are described in an xml file. If the model has textures, then they are stored in graphic files, which are usually located in a separate directory. DB3D format is a file of SQLite 3.0 and higher database, where the description of 3D models on the ground is stored in the form of tables. Viewing models together with a map is possible in the "Navigator 3D" task, the degree of detail of the models depends on the display scale.
    Support of the packed MPTZ project has been added. A packed project may include a comprehensive representation of the territory in the form of vector maps of different levels of detail, rasters (terrain images) in the RSW format, elevation matrixes and matrixes of qualitative characteristics of the terrain, insets from the same data, the links to data from the GIS Server and from geoportals by various protocols. All data sets are packed into one file of MPTZ format. Links to external data are saved as a packed INI file. Maps and classifiers are compressed in 3-4 times, matrixes are compressed in 3-5 times, rasters are compressed in 3-10 time. Images of terrain in RSW and a matrix in MTW and MTQ contain 4 levels of data presentation - the most detailed base, generalised in the 1/4 scale, generalised in the 1/16 scale, generalised in the 1/64 scale. When displayed, the closest level of data representation is selected.
    Speed of displaying MPTZ project is approximately the same, as at the initial uncompressed data. The speed of data exchange, packed into an MPTZ project, increases by 5 - 20 times, taking into account the decrease in the number of transferred files (for example, the original map can consist of several thousand files). The size of the MPTZ file and the number of sets in the project is not limited. Editing and exporting to other formats is not available for an MPTZ project.

    The use of the MPTZ format makes it possible to change the system of storage, delivery and use of topographic and geodetic information in federal and regional government bodies, law enforcement agencies, large companies and for individual consumers.

    Support for the RSCZ format - an RSC classifier file packed into a zip archive has been added. The volume of the stored file is reduced on average by 4-5 times without loss of data opening speed. RSC classifiers can be replaced at any time with packed files with the rscz extension. At opening a vector map, the GIS checks the presence of classifiers with extension rsc and rscz. The packed classifiers open only for reading.
    At maps sorting with compression into MAPZ\SITZ format, the RCS classifier is compressed and recorded together with a map. Into one file MAPZ the works region from several thousand sheets with the classifier can be written down, that simplifies an exchange and application of vector maps.
    ZIP has been added into the list of openable formats. When selected, zip is automatically unpacked onto the folder /tmp/Panorama.Cache/. The data opens in order of priority: the map project, vector maps, rasters, matrixes. This allows geodata projects to be archived, copied, and quickly viewed. The data in the archive opens for reading. After closing the unpacked data they automatically are deleted.
    The operator.rsc classifier has been improved. For symbols of ships from layers "Navy. Combat ships and boats", "Navy. Special purpose ships", "Navy. Support ships and enemy ships", in accordance with KEUZ, the binding point is placed into the bow of the ship instead of the center of the symbols. Conventional symbols of object states: damaged and destroyed - are enlarged for clarity.
    In the task "Save vector map in files of graphic formats" the list of formats of target files has been expanded. Along with BMP, TIFF, JPEG and RSW formats, the formation of a map image into a PNG file has been added. A fragment of a document of digital map of any type and content can be saved, including vector maps, rasters and matrixes, as well as geospatial data from external Internet resources (WMS and WFS - services). The ability has been implemented to save the map image by the selected area, by the page format and by the dimensions of the selected objects, for example, by the dimensions of the frames of the nomenclature sheets. The limitation on degree of increase in the image of rasters and matrixes is excluded. Rasters and matrixes which were drawn up to a scale 1:10, are drawn now without limiting the increase in a picture.

    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of agronomist" version 13.4.1 has been developed. In the new version the possibilities of satellite monitoring of agricultural lands were expanded and possibility of work with agricultural lands of complex shape has been added. Now objects for registration in the integrated web service can be represented by multipolygons consisting of any number of external or internal contours. This possibility allows you to more accurately mark the borders of agricultural land, taking into account the road network passing through them, land reclamation facilities and distinguishing natural areas not used for agriculture.
    The use of a modern approach to agricultural land management based on Earth's remote sensing data simplifies monitoring of large areas using a large number of indicators. Into "Workstation of agronomist" support of packed MPTZ project has been added. A packed project may include a comprehensive multi-scale representation of the territory in the form of vector maps of different levels of detail, rasters (terrain images) in the rsw format, elevation matrixes and matrixes of qualitative characteristics of the terrain, insets from the same data, the links to data from the GIS Server and from geoportals by various protocols. Maps and classifiers are compressed in 3-4 times, matrixes are compressed in 3-5 times, rasters are compressed in 3-10 time. Each image of terrain in rsw and a matrix in mtw and mtq contain a pyramid of tiles of 4 levels of data presentation - the most detailed base, generalised in the 1/4 scale, generalised in the 1/16 scale, generalised in the 1/64 scale. When displayed, the closest level of data representation is selected. The project may have images of different levels of detail with overlap and a given range of display scales.
    Using the external web service Geosys the "Workstation of agronomist" on the basis of a large array of satellite imagery implements the functions of precision farming. The program has the ability to obtain matrixes of the main vegetation indices (NDVI, CVI, EVI and GNDVI) for assessing the state of agricultural land, for building maps of field heterogeneity for a given number of zones, predicting yield based on the dynamics of changes in indicators for different seasons and creating maps for differentiated fertilization for different scripts.

    The use of remote sensing data of the earth, the results of satellite navigation measurements, the readings of various sensors and the construction of a corporate agrarian geoinformation system on their basis have already proven their high efficiency in the management of agrotechnical measures and ensuring reliable control of crop cultivation technologies. Using the maps of differentiated application of fertilizers reduce costs and allows to achieve more level of crop yield.

  • 01.07.2020 GIS "Operator" 13 supports a new system of storage, finishing and applying topographic and geodetic information
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Operator" version 13.4.0 is developed. In the new version a support of packed MPTZ project has been added. A packed project may include a comprehensive multi-scale representation of the territory in the form of vector maps of different levels of detail, rasters (terrain images) in the rsw format, elevation matrixes and matrixes of qualitative characteristics of the terrain, insets from the same data, the links to data from the GIS Server and from geoportals by various protocols. All data sets are packed into one file of mptz format. Maps and classifiers are compressed in 3-4 times, matrixes are compressed in 3-5 times, rasters are compressed in 3-10 time. Each image of terrain in rsw and a matrix in mtw and mtq contain a pyramid of tiles of 4 levels of data presentation - the most detailed base, generalised in the 1/4 scale, generalised in the 1/16 scale, generalised in the 1/64 scale. When displayed, the closest level of data representation is selected. The project may have images of different levels of detail with overlap and a given range of display scales. To create the mptz project, you need to open the corresponding maps, rasters, matrixes, data from GIS Servers and geoportals. Then make settings for display order, visibility borders, palette and other properties. To write to mptz, select the menu item File\Save As\Packed Project. Editing and export to other formats are not available for the mptz project. The mptz project display speed is about the same one, as for the original uncompressed data. The speed of exchanging by packed data is increasing by 5 to 20 times, taking into account the reduction in the number of transferred files (for example, the original map map may consist of several thousand files). The size of mptz file and number of sets in the project are not limited. Simultaneously without additional preparation it is possible to open any number of MPTZ projects, covering any territories in the form of a mosaic.
    The use of the MPTZ format allows you to change the system of storage, finishing and application of topographic and geodetic information in federal and regional government bodies, law enforcement agencies, large companies and for individual consumers.

    The task of thematic mapping has been improved. Automatic calculating the irregular ranges of characteristics values of a thematic map has been added. A thematic map with displaying of quantitative indicators can be built on a map with minimal semantic content, for example, on an OpenStreetMap map. It is enough to select the objects of interest (Pharmacies or Shops) on the map, and in the dialog in the "Coloring by number of objects" mode, by use of the "Filter" button to customize the composition of the administrative territories (urban area, village council). At the end of the composition customization, a statistical analysis is performed, as a result of which the values of the range borders are calculated. This method allows you to minimize manual operations for setting ranges.

    In the "Classifier Editor" task, the possibilities has been improved for import of three-dimensional models from the COLLADA (DAE) format. To optimize the size of loaded model, the following import modes have been added: without changing the original geometry, with removal of all duplicate vertices, removing duplicate vertices, taking into account the illumination along the edges. Import with the removal of vertices can significantly reduce the size of the original model due to the uniqueness of each loaded vertex and face. Vertex duplication in the initial model can occur due to the participation of one vertex in several faces, when a normal is described for each vertex instance. Optimization of models when import accelerates the display of a three-dimensional terrain model.

    In the "Navigator 3D" task, support has been added for the new geoportal "Monitoring the movement of ships" in three-dimensional form. Geoportal allows you to display real-time data about the location of ships on the base of an automatic identification system of data (AIS). It allows you to receive data from transponders of ships, satellites and ships monitoring system (VTS), and also to view their characteristics. From the Flightradar24 geoportal (aircraft monitoring), you can track the position of aircrafts. The service uses ADS-B receivers installed around the world that receive information from aircraft equipped with an ADS-B transponder and send it to the Flightradar24 server. Aircraft and ships on a 3D map are displayed by different types of models, depending on their type, size, capacity. All types of ships are assigned the appropriate three-dimensional models in the service library of three-dimensional symbols. Water vessels are displayed as off-scale models, which allows the user to see them on a small-scale three-dimensional terrain model, and when magnified without significant distortion.
    In addition to displaying real data, you can perform modeling by scenario. In the example data for the Noginsk map, a scenario of moving objects was added - .\scenario\scen_nog.xml, which can be viewed in the "Navigator 3D" task. On a three-dimensional model of Noginsk, transport models moving along given trajectories will appear. In the "Tools" menu item, as well as on the "Toolbar", there are scenario controls: start of scenario, pause, stop of scenario, scenario setup.

    The type of messages for the tasks "Map Editor" and "Map Computer" has been changed. Instead of messages requiring the operator to press a button, pop-up messages have been added informing about the result of the performed action. For example, "Copied to the clipboard: 200 objects" or "The frame for the selected object is not set". An informational or error warning message pops up in the lower right part of the main GIS window and will close after a while. The text of the error message is highlighted in red. All messages are recorded in the "Message Log", which is located in the line at the bottom of the GIS window in the form of a drop-down list. Each record contains the time, text, and title of the message. Viewing the message log is carried out with a single click on the message line in the status bar of the main window. Each open document has its own list of messages.

    There is optimized a reading and editing sets of vector maps with a volume of several GB, located on the GIS Server. The speed of data display has been increased, the amount of data transmitted over the network has been reduced.

    In the application task "Report Designer", the tools for constructing the map legend were modernized. The generated legend can be saved as a map in SITX format or as an image in JPG format for further use as additional graphic materials when generating report layouts.

    The task "Object selection" has been improved. On the "Semantics" bookmark the abilities to sort the table have been expanded. Data can be sorted by code, the name of the semantic characteristic, by the value of the characteristic and in the order established in the classifier for this type of map object. Sorting type can be selected through the "Sort" context menu.

    The options for selecting objects in the dialogs "Map Contents" and "Search for Map Objects" are expanded. The list of objects is presented in the form of a table with the columns "Name", "Code", "Character Code", "Key", "Type". The list of objects is ordered by the values of elements in any column, which is performed by clicking on the column heading. The search for an object in the list can be performed by the value of the element in any column.

    The mode "Export of heights matrix to TIFF format" has been improved. In dialog the possibility was added for saving all matrixes of the document into files of TIFF format.

Each image of terrain in rsw and a matrix in mtw and mtq contain a pyramid of tiles of 4 levels of data presentation - the most detailed base, generalised in the 1/4 scale, generalised in the 1/16 scale, generalised in the 1/64 scale. When displayed, the closest level of data representation is selected. The project may have images of different levels of detail with overlap and a given range of display scales.
    To create the mptz project, you need to open the corresponding maps, rasters, matrixes, data from GIS Servers and geoportals. Then make settings for display order, visibility borders, palette and other properties.
    To write to mptz, select the menu item File\Save As\Packed Project. Editing and export to other formats are not available for the mptz project. The mptz project display speed is about the same one, as for the original uncompressed data. The speed of exchanging by packed data is increasing by 5 to 20 times, taking into account the reduction in the number of transferred files (for example, the original map map may consist of several thousand files). The size of mptz file and number of sets in the project are not limited. Simultaneously without additional preparation it is possible to open any number of MPTZ projects, covering any territories in the form of a mosaic.
    The use of the MPTZ format allows you to change the system of storage, communication and application of topographic and geodetic information in federal and regional government bodies, law enforcement agencies, large companies and for individual consumers.
    The problem of thematic mapping has been improved. Added automatic calculation of irregular ranges of values for the characteristics of a thematic map. A thematic map with a reflection of quantitative indicators can be built on a map with minimal semantic content, for example, on an OpenStreetMap map. It is enough to select objects of interest on the map (for example, pharmacies or shops), and in the dialogue in the "Color by number of objects" mode, use the "Filter" button to configure the composition of the administrative territories (urban area, village council). At the end of the composition adjustment, a statistical analysis is performed, as a result of which the values of the range boundaries are calculated. This method allows you to minimize manual operations for setting ranges.

    The type of messages for the tasks "Map Editor" and "Calculations on the map" has been changed. Instead of messages requiring the operator to press a button, pop-up messages have been added informing about the result of the performed action. For example, "Copied to the clipboard: 200 objects" or "The frame for the selected object is not set". An informational or error warning message pops up in the lower right part of the main GIS window and closes after a while. The text of the error message is highlighted in red. All messages are recorded in the "Message Log", which is located in the line at the bottom of the GIS window in the form of a drop-down list. Each record contains the time, text, and title of the message. Viewing the message log is carried out with a single click on the message line in the status bar of the main window. Each open document has its own list of messages.
    There is optimized a reading and editing sets of vector maps with a volume of several GB, located on the GIS Server. The speed of data display has been increased, the amount of data transmitted over the network has been reduced.

The system is built on the basis of geographic information technologies, which provides automated preparation of maps and plans, geo-referencing of documents to the map and a visual displaying the current situation of urban development.

    The introduction of "Panorama GRAD" allows municipalities and public authorities to organize a unified environment for working with spatial data, attributive information and electronic documents. Due to the maintenance of automated ISOGD and systematized databases and information on urban development activities, employees of the municipality will always be provided with reliable information about the current state of the managed territories. The system allows you to publish open data on the Internet using the geoportal, which also helps to receive applications for obtaining the information from ISOGD. In the desktop application the GIS "Panorama" system allows you to generate territorial planning documents and all types of urban planning documentation: urban development plan of a land plot, building permit, and others. System's tools provide maintenance of accounting registers: register of land plots, objects of capital construction and others.

    "Panorama GRAD" is integrated with any information system of a city or region, which improves the quality of interagency cooperation, as well as the speed and level of service. In addition, integration allows to conduct operational control of departments according to carried out functions and areas of responsibility.

    You can familiarize yourself with the urban development management system and presentation materials in detail on the "Presentations" page.

  • 06.05.2020 In "Workstation of agronomist" tools of inventory and monitoring of agricultural land are expanded
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of agronomist" version 13.2.0 has been developed. In the new version the technology of inventory and monitoring of agricultural land is implemented. It is intended for the specifying and displaying on a digital map of agricultural land, land reclamation objects, road network, buildings and structures, as well as land boundaries in the context of land users. To set the boundaries of land use, "Workstation of the agronomist" is supplemented with new modes "Create multipolygon", "Filling the report under the metrics of object" and "Copy objects to another map". The creation of multipolygons provides for the formation of multi-contour land uses consisting of several external and internal polygons - subobjects. Using this mode, one object can be formed including all the contours of one crop rotation field or land belonging to one land user.

    "Workstation of agronomist" is integrated with the satellite monitoring service of Geosys company, which provides remote processing and analysis of large volumes of images posted on servers in the data cloud of various space data operators. Based on the results of queries, matrixes of vegetation indices and zoning maps are generated. Sorting data by measurement time allows you to build a slice of information about the condition of crops, vegetation of crops, heterogeneity of arable land and other indicators of land use. Using visualization tools, you can view matrixes of various indicators and graphs of their changes. The storage and processing of matrixes and time series for agrochemical indicators, vegetation indices, crop yields, phytosanitary indicators, meteorological data and other monitoring indicators is supported.

    The technology provides the use for the inventory of data of operational space shooting of Earth's remote sensing satellites in combination with materials of shooting from unmanned aerial vehicles. The refined dialog "Select Object" provides an operational update of the object metrics from file formats: SHP/DBF, OGC GML, GeoJSON. To speed up the viewing of information from the semantics of objects, a new method has been added for selecting areal objects on the map, which ensures the selection of the desired object according to its contour, without enumerating all the objects at the map point. The task "Search by name" has been improved, the ability of searching and marking the objects by a list of lines that partially or fully match the value of a specified semantics or title text has been added. The list of lines can be loaded from a text file, pasted from the clipboard, or entered in the corresponding dialog box. The restriction on the text size of a multi-line title on the map is excluded.

    The new version of the program is available on the website in the Download section.

  • 04.05.2020 Map of Kyrgyz Republic has been updated on the geoportal "Bank of spatial data"
    On the geoportal "Bank of spatial data", the map of the Kyrgyz Republic, formed according to OpenStreetMap data, was updated. The source data was obtained from the Geofabrik website. For work with the map it is possible to use the program of GIS Panorama Mini 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.rsc). 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 and images".

  • 30.04.2020 GIS WebService SE dynamically generates tiles based on international OGC standards using SLD styles and filters
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebService SE version 13.3.1 has been developed. The new version adds support for international standards OGC 05-078r4 v.1.1.0 and OGC 02-070 v.1.0.0 - SLD (Styled Layer Descriptor). SLD styles allow you to dynamically change the image for a specific user without changing the classifier. Filters and styles of objects can be applied in requests on thematic mapping. Styles can be preloaded onto the service and attached to a specific layer or can be sent in a request. It is possible to display the same object in different ways, using the preset styles or sending your own. To each type of object specified by the key, its own SLD scheme can be assigned. The layer structure can be obtained using the DescribeFeatureType query. The transfer of the SLD scheme in the request for the creation of an object allows you to create graphic objects on the map, the symbol of which does not depend on the map classifier. The service also allows you to issue a graphical description of the objects (external view) in accordance with the SLD or in the format for Leaflet.

    Support of international standard OGC 09-026r1 and ISO/DIS 19143 v.2.0 is implemented. This standard allows you to select objects according to the conditions specified in the request. For service's work in accordance with this specification the filter of objects is attached to the GetFeature request using the POST method. Support for the POST method for international standards OGC WMS and OGC WFS has been added. This will simplify the process of integrating the service with third-party software.

    Possibility of gathering and displaying the statistical information about work of the service is added. For example, you can request the number of requests processed by the service per second, per minute, per hour; number of erroneous requests; the number of requests with a long processing time; average, minimum and maximum execution time of the selected request. The service groups the requests by types in accordance with the documentation (overlay operations, service operations, and others). The program allows you to display statistics for each group separately. In addition, you can display a list of active users and a list of active data. The administrator can monitor the load on the service and view its current status. Reliability of working the service is improved at occurrence of critical situations. Possibility of saving a stack of procedure call and current requests is added at abnormal termination of service's work.

    Possibilities of work with 3D map are expanded. A new type of service has been added - Layers3D. This type combines all the possibilities of working with a three-dimensional terrain model and allows you to perform new requests. The list of displayed service types in the GetLayers request has been expanded. Support for scenarios of moving objects was added. The service allows issuing scripts for objects in the XML and JSON format, and also the trajectories of the objects movement. Using scripts, it is possible to simulate the movement of objects on a map. Support of maps in format SITZ has been implemented. New parameters for GetFeature requests have been added - do not display the value of heights, hide the output of metadata about the layer.

    GIS WebServiсe SE supports all international standards (OGC WFS, WFS-T, WMS, WMTS, WCS), with the help of which the transmission and display of spatial data is carried out. The program implements the ability to issue tiles on any user or local coordinate system. The application is implemented on Windows and Linux platforms, is compatible with Apache, IIS and nginx web servers.

    The new version of the program and documentation are available on the website in the Download section.

  • 29.04.2020 GIS Panorama Mini with the interface in Russian, English, French, Spanish, Vietnamese, Kazakh and Chinese languages has been developed
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS Panorama Mini version 13.2.0 for the x64 platform was developed. The new version of the program is implemented in Russian, English, French, Spanish, Vietnamese, Kazakh and Chinese languages. GIS Panorama Mini provides creation and editing of digital maps and plans of cities, viewing of remote sensing data, processing of the raster data, interaction with databases, contains tools of preparing graphic documents in a digital and printed form. The multiuser work with the data with access control through connection to the GIS Server is supported.

    In the new version of the program the display of geoportals is significantly accelerated. Support of popular geoportals allows you to display user maps on top of images received from the sites OpenStreetMap (Map), Yandex (Satellite), Yandex (Map), Rosreestr, Kosmosnimki, Monitoring aircraft movements and others. The list of available geoportals is constantly expanding. Controlling the transparency, brightness and contrast of the image of the connected geoportal significantly increases the visibility and readability of the document formed by heterogeneous geospatial data.

    Modes of editing vector maps of different projections combined in one document are improved. The program provides creation of simple objects and objects with subobjects; creation of objects by the type of selected one from the panel of breadboard models of created objects; creating, deleting and moving points of the contour of the object; moving and turn of objects; drawing of simple lines and polygons; input of multi-line texts of titles and values of attributes in UNICODE encoding.

    Tools are improved for the preparation and printing of complex reports, including maps, graphics, multi-line text with various attributes, embedded office documents and tables, "out-of-frame" bordering, coordinate grids and other elements. The program provides printing of electronic maps on various output devices and output into PostScript. A preview of the document prepared for printing allows you to quickly customize options of printing the small runs of maps.

    New types of objects semantics are added: semantics the numerical formula and semantics the symbolical formula. New types complement the programmable semantics the formula, the value of which is calculated in the connected iml-libraries. For new types of computed semantics, mathematical or logical expressions are defined that are executed without programming. For the numerical formula in semantics description the mathematical expression (formula) is indicated that contains numbers, mathematical operations, links to the values of semantics of object, its area, perimetre, coordinates of the first point in meters or degrees, coordinates of the geometrical center of object and other properties. For example, the following operations can be used as mathematical operations: +, -, *, /, max, min, arm, sin, cos, tg, ctg, abs, sqrt2, sqrt3, pow2, pow3.

    To insert the semantics value into the formula, the symbol # is indicated behind which there is a code of semantics and in brackets a value by default is contained. For example, # 1 (10) - take the value of semantics 1, if the object does not have semantics with code 1, take the value 10.

    When editing the coordinates or semantics of an object, the values of semantic formulas are automatically recalculated. The choice of type of semantics and entering of formulas is carried out in the task the Classifier Editor. The dialog "Select Object" has been improved. On the bookmark "Metrics" the possibility of updating of object from files of formats: SHP/DBF, OGC GML, GeoJSON is added. You can update an object or only its metric through the items in the context menu "Update object metric" or "Update object".

    The task "Search by name" has been improved. Possibility of line-by-line search or text marking by full (partial) coincidence is added. Multiline text can be loaded from a text file, pasted from a buffer, or entered in the appropriate field. For example, the mode allows you to select on the map all objects containing in the semantics of "Name" one of the lines of a multi-line list.

    The restriction on the size of a multi-line title on the map is excluded. When a line longer than 126 characters is entered in the "Label editing" dialog, an service record with code 32860 with the entered text is created in the semantics of the object, and the link "# 32860" is saved in the label text. When editing text, an automatic updating the text of label and semantics is carried out. If the text becomes shorter than 126 characters, the service semantics will be deleted.

    A new way of a choice of square objects on a map - only on the object contour is added. The main mode of the object choice is the mouse-click inside the object or along its contour. This mode complicates the enumeration of objects if in one point there is a large number of areal objects. For example, areal objects of territories are displayed in the following order: City - District - Region. The choice of objects is performed in the reverse order: Region - District - City. With the main mode of a choice the city territory will be chosen only from the third time. At a choice of the areal object on the contour the city territory can be chosen from the first time. Customizing the mode of a choosing the areal objects is carried out through the main menu of the program: Options\Square objects choice on the contour.

    The new version of the program is available for download in the Download section.

  • 27.04.2020 In the Databank of digital maps and remote sensing data the level of automation of control over completeness and integrity of metadata and publications of geospatial data has been increased
    In KB "Panorama" the Databank of digital maps and remote sensing data version 5.2.0 is developed. In the new version there is added a control of scheme of data sets presence - links of different data sets to one object on the scheme are automatically corrected. When loading maps, images and matrixes the metadata fields "Data Type" and "Security" can be set at the moment of loading the data sets. At filling the metadata at the moment of loading, the classification codes of directories are used. The use of classification codes facilitates further data exchange between several copies of the Databank of digital maps and Remote Sensing Data. Possibility is added to publish packaged vector maps MAPZ and SITZ. The packed maps are opened read-only. The volume of packed maps and data transmitted over the network is 3 times less than unpacked ones.

    The time zone analysis is added at search and display of data. The date of placing into storehouse is recorded for zero time zone (without displacement). When it is displayed, an automatic recount takes into account the time zone of the server. The mechanism of creating the database backups is optimised. When creating a backup, a log file is automatically created, which is located next to the backup.

    Within the framework of a single geoinformation space, the Data Bank of digital maps and remote sensing data realises gathering, storage, search and delivery of the spatial data in exchange formats. The spatial data selected by means of the program can be placed for the multiuser access on the GIS Server and be published according to the international standards OGC WFS, WFS-T, WMS, WMTS, WCS on application server the GIS WebService SE. Users can access data from both a thin client (by means of GIS WebServer SE) and from desktop applications (GIS "Panorama", GIS "Operator"GIS "Operator"). The databank of digital maps and remote sensing data provides construction of cloud warehouse of spatial data, provision of access to these data, the automated formation and updating of geo-covers. The current state of spatial data is displayed by means of maps-schemes that are maintained for each type of stored data: vector maps, remote sensing data, elevation matrixes and terrain models. It provides remote placing the sets of spatial data into file warehouse, keeping versions of stored sets, updating maps-schemes of data availability, the automated collection and formation of metadata, and the formation and updating of geo-covers. Automated collection and formation of metadata is performed according to the standards of ISO 19115: 2003, Geographic information - Metadata and ISO/TS 19139, Geographic information - Metadata - XML schema implementation. The reduced copies of data images are automatically formed, checksum of files and completeness of data sets are checked.

  • 25.04.2020 GIS Server version 9 with the interface in Russian, English, French, Spanish and Vietnamese languages has been developed
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS Server version 9 has been developed. New version of the program is implemented in Russian, English, French, Spanish and Vietnamese. In the program a support is added for packed vector maps MAPZ and SITZ. The packed maps are opened read-only. The volume of packed maps and data transmitted over the network is 3 times less than unpacked ones. The new version increases the speed and reliability of query execution when interacting with the Databank of digital maps and remote sensing data. Diagnostics has been expanded in case of error in generating an overview image of the SXF file when writing into the Databank. Speed of processing files of SXF format doubled. When monitoring the data availability scheme in the Data Bank of Digital Maps and Remote Sensing Data, deleted objects referenced in the table are automatically restored and updated.

    There is added a support for links in map objects onto maps in a subdirectory of the main map. It provides automation of preparing the reports containing inserts of other maps. To do this, all maps must be placed in a virtual folder to which the client has access.
    Ability is added in the GIS Administrator to connect a shared virtual folder for vector maps, rasters and matrices. Diagnostic print messages were updated. The reliability of multi-channel connections with GIS Server clients has been improved. The algorithm of processing failed connections for an exception of server blocking was changed. Connection of large spatial databases displayed and edited in the form of vector maps in conventional symbols has been improved. Loading of the databases, containing tens of millions of records is accelerated. Reliability of updating records on the client is improved when editing objects.

    Transfer of a frame of data sets on the scheme of materials availability in the range - / + 180 degrees in latitude is added. The algorithm for clients requesting large lists of objects updated on the server has been improved. Ability is implemented to build vector geocovers of sea maps of the S57 format, raster geocovers from the IMG, PCX formats. Restoration from backup copies of data sets is improved at failure on storage devices.
    Tools of loading the pyramids of tiles of formats BIR and GPKG were updated. There is added a support for loading pyramids of tiles of 3D model in DB3D format stored in the SQLite database. GIS Server automatically reads metadata from the database to determine the dimensions, EPSG code and other attributes of the model.
    There is added a processing of metadata in files with the extension ".json" or ".geojson" containing the coordinates of the areas of terrain survey and other information about remote sensing data.

    The program has added tools for monitoring the integrity of the installation after installation. The program includes a checkcontents.xml file containing a list of installation files with an indication of the size and checksum using the "CRC32" algorithm. At the start of the GIS Server, the installation integrity is automatically checked and the verification result is recorded into the program operation log.
    In GIS Server the composition of automated procedures for processing spatial data on the server has been expanded. They perform various types of quality control of digital vector terrain maps and correction of errors.
    The procedure of quality control of digital maps, like other procedures, can be called remotely from desktop or web applications. The GIS Server includes a set of classifiers of RSC format and control schemes for digital topographic maps of scales from 1:25 000 to 1: 1 000 000.
    The composition of classifiers and control schemes for the xml format can be customized by tools of GIS "Panorama" and other desktop applications. Possibility is added for publishing the packed pyramids of tiles in formats BIR, MBTILES, based on SQLite database. Pyramids of tiles can be created in the Imagery Creator program, including in the environment of the Databank of digital maps and remote sensing data, on the vector maps, remote sensing data and matrixes of elevations and objects of terrain.


    Support for displaying and editing vector maps hosted on a server larger than 4 GB is implemented. The connection of the GIS Server to other servers is supported to gain access to remote data through several connections. Means of monitoring the state of the GIS Server in the web were added to view a list of active users and open data, remotely view the program’s log.

    The program improves the productivity and reliability of operations of editing spatial database under high load on multi-core servers. Testing of working the GIS Server program with PostgreSQL DBMS in interaction with GIS WebService SE and GIS WebServer SE was made when connecting several thousand web clients and executing up to 500 queries per second. The database can be simultaneously edited by external applications and through the graphical interface of the programs GIS WebServer SE, GIS "Panorama". The GIS Server automatically monitors all changes and synchronizes the state of the data, which allows the GIS WebService SE to issue up-to-date graphic images upon OGC WMS requests.

    The new version provides complete management of spatial databases of arbitrary structure. Direct editing of database records with fields of various types containing the coordinates of objects has been implemented. There are supported the fields of spatial description of objects for Oracle DBMS, and PostgreSQL - SDO_GEOMETRY, St_Geometry ArcSDE, St_Geometry PostGIS. Parameters of connecting to databases, the coordinate system code, the symbol library and the purpose of the table fields are customized by the GIS Server Administrator.

    GIS Server automates the creation of backup copies of data sets into the Databank of digital map and remote sensing data, monitoring the integrity of data sets and their recovery. One or two backup copies of data sets loaded into the Data Bank are automatically created with distributed storage of backup copies for different data groups. In the control procedure of metadata of the data bank, a check has been added for the availability of backup copies in accordance with the group settings. In the absence of the first or second backup copies, automatic formation of a copy of the main data set and auxiliary files (the classifiers, metadata, images and others) is carried out. Automatic recovery of data sets is provided in the presence of two identical backups in the Databank of Digital Maps and Remote Sensing Data.

    The program has improved the tools of publishing information from spatial databases managed by Oracle, PostgreSQL, MS SQL and others. Possibility has been added to set the conventional symbols of objects of a database by the alphanumeric code stored in a separate field of the database table. Alphanumeric code is the analogue of a classification integer code and also is used for coding the conventional symbols of objects. In the Classifier Editor of GIS "Panorama", you can enter not only digital codes, but also arbitrary lines in national languages (alphanumeric code). Its main purpose is to establish the mutual correspondence of the conventional symbols of objects on digital maps and a combination of the values of the objects attributes, including code, in databases and other sources of information.

    The new version of the program is available for download on the Download page.

  • 24.04.2020 Tools of GIS ToolKit provide developers with the advanced possibilities of analysing the spatial data
    In KB "Panorama" the tools of GIS ToolKit version 13.0.4 is developed for creation of GIS-applications in the environment of C ++ Builder, Delphi Embarcadero. In the new version the possibilities are expanded for analysis of spatial data on the basis of use of the cartographical schemes, programmable semantics (attributes) of map objects, an updating the spatial data with use of the international formats.
    GIS ToolKit allows to display the cartographical schemes created in the GIS "Panorama". Cartographical schemes can contain insets of maps of various scales and territories, inserts of images and texts. New types of objects semantics are added: semantics the numerical formula and semantics the symbolical formula. New types complement the programmable semantics the formula, the value of which is calculated in the connected iml-libraries. For new types of computed semantics, mathematical or logical expressions are defined that are executed without programming. For the numerical formula in semantics description the mathematical expression (formula) is indicated that contains numbers, mathematical operations, links to the values of semantics of object, its area, perimetre, coordinates of the first point in meters or degrees, coordinates of the geometrical center of object and other properties. For example, the following operations can be used as mathematical operations: +, -, *, /, max, min, arm, sin, cos, tg, ctg, abs, sqrt2, sqrt3, pow2, pow3.

    To insert the semantics value into the formula, the symbol # is indicated behind which there is a code of semantics and in brackets a value by default is contained. For example, # 1 (10) - take the value of semantics 1, if the object does not have semantics with code 1, take the value 10. For an approximate estimate of the timber stock in the forest, one can use the expression: S/(#61(1)*#61(1))*PI*#60(0.5)*#60(0.5)/4*#1(4). Divide the forest's area S by the area occupied by one tree - semantics 61 (Distance between trees) squared, and multiply by the volume of wood of the tree obtained by the semantics 60 (Thickness) and 1 (Relative height).

    For a symbolic formula, in the semantics description, a string template is specified containing one or more links to semantics of an object of the form #XX (YY), where XX is the semantics code, YY is the value of the semantic characteristic if it is absent. For example: #101(5)storey building\#3(RESIDENTIAL) - take from the object the value of semantics with code 101, if not, the value 5 will be assigned, add the symbols "storey building" and the following semantics with code 3, the default value is "RESIDENTIAL".

    The symbolical formula supports special characters for code recording of values, the same as for the formation of the title text. For example, #XX.*(Z^P), where #XX is the digital code of semantics (from 1 to 65535), * is an indication of accuracy (from 0 to 9), reduction of the value (s) or line break (w), Z is the default value, P is the string formatting options (^P1^P2^P3...). For example: X=#32205.3 Y=#32206.3 H=#32207.3(0) - form a coordinate line with an accuracy of the 3rd sign from the service semantics; #46!1()(#11!1())#55.s() - form a reference designation for the road, including the width of the coating, the total width, the designation of the coating material. When editing the coordinates or semantics of an object, the values of semantic formulas are automatically recalculated. The choice of type of semantics and entering of formulas is carried out in the task the Classifier Editor, which is available through the TMapRsc component.

    The updated "Select Object" dialog allows you to update the coordinates of an object from file formats: SHP / DBF, OGC GML, GeoJSON. The dialog is accessible through the TMapObj component.
    The toolkit consists of a set of visual components (supplied in the source texts) and API functions of the GIS core for direct access to spatial data. The toolkit is designed to develop the client-server and desktop 32-bit and 64-bit applications that require processing and visualization of spatial data. Spatial data can be located both at the workplace (direct access to data) and on a local network or the Internet (access components to the GIS Server or data exchange using international protocols are used).

  • 23.04.2020 GIS "Operator" is adapted to standard classifiers of special maps for power departments
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Operator" version 13.2.0 is developed for the x64 platform. In the new version of program the classifiers of conventional symbols emercom.v2.rsc, rosgvardia.rsc, map5000m.rsc, s57navy.rsc, dfc.rsc and others have been updated.

    Classifier of conventional signs emercom.v2.rsc has been developed in accordance with the requirements of the governing documents of the Ministry of Emergency Situations (GOST R 22.0.10-96) for the preparation of cartographic information in the field of civil defense (CD), prevention and liquidation of consequences of emergencies by governing bodies, civil defense forces and the unified state system for the prevention and liquidation of emergency situations (RSChS). The emercom.v2.rsc classifier contains the information: about territories, zones, objects, forces and means affecting the problems of organization, planning and conduct of measures for civil defense and the protection of the population and territories; about the forecast and operational situation arising in the course of military conflicts or as a result of these conflicts, as well as during emergencies of a natural and man-made nature; about planning and conducting activities on civil defense, prevention and liquidation of consequences of emergencies of a natural and man-made character.

    The rosgvardia.rsc classifier of conventional symbols was developed for the FederalNational Guard Troops Service of the Russian Federation and is intended for the preparation of cartographic information on planning and conducting the fight against terrorism and extremism, organized crime, ensuring state security, protecting important state objects, and also maintaining order at public events. The operator.rsc classifier provides the preparation of special maps for all types and branches of the RF Armed Forces. Algorithms are refined for displaying complex conventional symbols: direction of impact, control points and others.

    The modernized classifier of large-scale plans of a scale 1: 5 000 the map5000m.rsc is designed to create topographic plans of cities or city plans in the local coordinate system of scales of 1: 5000, which can be used in territorial planning, maintaining the land and property cadastre, in architecture and urban planning. The codes of the Information Cartographic Support approved by the Head of the VTU General Staff of the Russian Federation are taken as the basis of object codes.

    The s57navy.rsc classifier is designed for maintaining navigational maps of the IHO S52 standard. The dfc.rsc classifier is used to prepare aeronautical documents that are used in planning the airspace structure, for laying and studying the flight route, navigational flight calculations, visual radar orientation, designing aerodrome routes and determining navigational flight parameters. The classifier contains the description of layers, objects and their characteristics providing representation in a digital form of information on the structure of airspace - air traffic services (ATS), airspace restriction, enroutes, turning points and radio navigation aids, aerodrome networks and obstacles. The dfc.rsc classifier has been prepared taking into account the recommendations of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO): “Guide to Air Navigation Maps”, Doc 8697-AN/889/2, Appendix 4 "Air Navigation Maps".

    Into the GIS "Operator" the new types of objects semantics are added: semantics the numerical formula and semantics the symbolical formula. New types complement the programmable semantics the formula, the value of which is calculated in the connected iml-libraries. For new types of computed semantics, mathematical or logical expressions are defined that are executed without programming. For the numerical formula in semantics description the mathematical expression (formula) is indicated that contains numbers, mathematical operations, links to the values of semantics of object, its area, perimetre, coordinates of the first point in meters or degrees, coordinates of the geometrical center of object and other properties. For example, the following operations can be used as mathematical operations: +, -, *, /, max, min, arm, sin, cos, tg, ctg, abs, sqrt2, sqrt3, pow2, pow3.
    For a symbolic formula, in the semantics description, a string template is specified containing one or more links to semantics of an object of the form #XX (YY), where XX is the semantics code, YY is the value of the semantic characteristic if it is absent. The symbolical formula supports special characters for code recording of values, the same as for the formation of the title text. When editing the coordinates or semantics of an object, the values of semantic formulas are automatically recalculated. The choice of type of semantics and entering of formulas is carried out in the task the Classifier Editor.

    In the "Preparing for printing" section of the list of applications, the "Report Designer" application has been added for quick creation of graphic documents using maps insets and image insets. The wizard for creating a new project allows by "one-click" to form a template of graphic document with ready-made layout and footers (headers, corner stamps and other elements). Modes for drawing maps insets and images inserts, editing content, positioning and scaling images inside the insets make it easy to create visual and informative graphic documents. The creation of new and an editing of existing templates is supported for their further replication when creating new graphic documents. The dimensions of the printed fields of created document are automatically transferred to the print dialog, which allows you to quickly print a document without selecting a printable area and setting indents.

    The dialog "Select Object" has been improved. On the bookmark "Metrics" the possibility of updating of object from files of formats: SHP/DBF, OGC GML, GeoJSON is added. You can update an object or only its metric through the items in the context menu "Update object metric" or "Update object".

    A new way of a choice of square objects on a map - only on the object contour is added. The main mode of the object choice is the mouse-click inside the object or along its contour. This mode complicates the enumeration of objects if in one point there is a large number of areal objects. For example, areal objects of territories are displayed in the following order: City - District - Region. The choice of objects is performed in the reverse order: Region - District - City. With the main mode of a choice the city territory will be chosen only from the third time. At a choice of the areal object on the contour the city territory can be chosen from the first time. Customizing the mode of a choosing the areal objects is carried out through the main menu of the program:Options\Square objects choice on the contour.

    The task "Search by name" has been improved. Possibility of line-by-line search or text marking by full (partial) coincidence is added. Multiline text can be loaded from a text file, pasted from a buffer, or entered in the appropriate field. For example, the mode allows you to select on the map all objects containing in the semantics of "Name" one of the lines of a multi-line list.

    The restriction on the size of a multi-line title on the map is excluded. When a line longer than 126 characters is entered in the "Label editing" dialog, an service record with code 32860 with the entered text is created in the semantics of the object, and the link "# 32860" is saved in the label text. When editing text, an automatic updating the text of label and semantics is carried out. If the text becomes shorter than 126 characters, the service semantics will be deleted.

    The new version of the program is available for download in the Download section.

  • 21.04.2020 The new "Report Designer" module in the GIS "Panorama" simplifies the creation of professional cartographic schemes of various sizes
    Into the GIS "Panorama" 13 the application - "Report Designer" has been added. It allows you to create cartographic schemes of various formats (A4 - A0) with elements of professional design: background map, inset of general or detailed maps of various sizes, a map legend, text labels, additional images. A set of specialized modes is arranged into a separate toolbar. The wizard for creating a new project allows by "one-click" to form a template of graphic document with ready-made layout and footers (headers, corner stamps and other elements). Modes for drawing maps insets and images inserts, editing content, positioning and scaling images inside the insets facilitate creation of visual and informative cartographic schemes for their subsequent printing or formation of graphic images in various formats.

    The program supports the creation of new and editing existing templates for their further replication. The dimensions of the printed fields of the created document are automatically transferred to the print dialog. This allows you to quickly print a document without selecting a printable area, setting the margins and scale.

  • 20.04.2020 In the "Workstation of cadastral engineer" the reading of the cadastral extract from the Unified State Register of Real Estate about the building is implemented
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of cadastral engineer" version 13.2 is developed. In the new version, the mode "Reading the cadastral plan of the territory and updating the map" has been improved. There is implemented a support for cadastral extract from the Unified State Register of Real Estate about the building according to the extract_about_property_build_v01 scheme used in information interaction.
    At reading the data of XML-schemes used for formation of the XML-document - the extracts from the Unified State Register of Real Estate about the object of real estate in the electronic form, a processing of data on cadastral numbers of plots on which the building is located, cadastral numbers of premises and the parking spaces located in a building is implemented. An algorithm has been developed for reading and storing information about parts of the building. In an XML document, the location of a part of the building can be described either in the form of coordinates or in text form with links to images of floor plans. The program supports both options for describing the location of a part of the building. For the parts having a spatial component, the areal objects - building's parts are put onto a map. For the parts of a building which do not have the descriptions in the form of coordinates, the point object - a conditional part of a building is put onto a map. The coordinates of the conditional part are calculated according to the coordinates of the building, in the form of its center. In addition, into semantics of conditional parts of a building, information about an arrangement of a part within a building or on the floor plan is recorded. To store new information about the building and its parts, corrections were made in the survey.v5.rsc classifier.

    The procedure for working with dialogs for entering and editing a structured address (location description) has been changed. The "Get Address" button which used information from the database in the CLADR structure was removed. Now the address database in the FIAS structure is used. To obtain an address from a new address base, the "FIAS Address" button is used, which call a new dialog for selecting elements of a structured address. In the address database according to the FIAS structure, directories of types of address elements are not used, but simple strings are used to describe geonyms. The same version of the describing the types of address elements is set in the _AddressInp_v09.xsd scheme used in the formation of technical plans. To support the _AddressInp_v05.xsd scheme used in the preparation of the land survey plan, the map (plan) of the land management object and other cadastral documents using the directories of address element types, functions have been added for synchronizing type values from the FIAS address database with outdated directories.

  • 17.04.2020 Professional vectorizer "Panorama-editor" offers new tools to automate work of topographers and geodesists
    In KB "Panorama" the professional vectorizer "Panorama-editor" version 13.2.0 for the x64 platform is developed. The new version of the program accelerated the tools of automated quality control of digital topographic maps with automatic error correction. Methods for analyzing the correspondence of the object content of topographic maps have been improved, digital classifiers have been updated, and generalization procedure parameters have been prepared for scales of 1: 25,000 - 1: 1,000,000.

    In the GIS "Panorama-editor" the new types of objects semantics are added: semantics the numerical formula and semantics the symbolical formula. New types complement the programmable semantics the formula, the value of which is calculated in the connected iml-libraries. For new types of computed semantics, mathematical or logical expressions are defined that are executed without programming. For the numerical formula in semantics description the mathematical expression (formula) is indicated that contains numbers, mathematical operations, links to the values of semantics of object, its area, perimetre, coordinates of the first point in meters or degrees, coordinates of the geometrical center of object and other properties. For example, the following operations can be used as mathematical operations: +, -, *, /, max, min, arm, sin, cos, tg, ctg, abs, sqrt2, sqrt3, pow2, pow3.

    For a symbolic formula, in the semantics description, a string template is specified containing one or more links to semantics of an object of the form #XX (YY), where XX is the semantics code, YY is the value of the semantic characteristic if it is absent. The symbolical formula supports special characters for code recording of values, the same as for the formation of the title text. When editing the coordinates or semantics of an object, the values of semantic formulas are automatically recalculated. The choice of type of semantics and entering of formulas is carried out in the task the Classifier Editor.

    In the Map Editor, a mode for copying metric data of one map object into another object was added. The task is intended to perform actions on copying the coordinates from a specified object or group of selected objects.

    The restriction on the size of a multi-line title on the map is excluded. When a line longer than 126 characters is entered in the "Label editing" dialog, an service record with code 32860 with the entered text is created in the semantics of the object, and the link "# 32860" is saved in the label text. When editing text, an automatic updating the text of label and semantics is carried out. If the text becomes shorter than 126 characters, the service semantics will be deleted.

    The dialog "Select Object" has been improved. On the bookmark "Metrics" the possibility of updating of object from files of formats: SHP/DBF, OGC GML, GeoJSON is added. You can update an object or only its metric through the items in the context menu "Update object metric" or "Update object".

    At export of a vector map to formats DXF and MIF\MID the title text of the form #XXX is replaced with the value of the corresponding semantics. Execution of quality control of a vector map is accelerated.

    A new way of a choice of square objects on a map - only on the object contour is added. The main mode of the object choice is the mouse-click inside the object or along its contour. This mode complicates the enumeration of objects if in one point there is a large number of areal objects. For example, areal objects of territories are displayed in the following order: City - District - Region. The choice of objects is performed in the reverse order: Region - District - City. With the main mode of a choice the city territory will be chosen only from the third time. At a choice of the areal object on the contour the city territory can be chosen from the first time. Customizing the mode of a choosing the areal objects is carried out through the main menu of the program:Options\Square objects choice on the contour.

    The task "Search by name" has been improved. Possibility of line-by-line search or text marking by full (partial) coincidence is added. Multiline text can be loaded from a text file, pasted from a buffer, or entered in the appropriate field. For example, the mode allows you to select on the map all objects containing in the semantics of "Name" one of the lines of a multi-line list.

    The block of geodesy and cadastral tasks has been improved. The procedure for working with dialogs for entering and editing a structured address (location description) has been changed. The "Get Address" button which used information from the database in the CLADR structure was removed. Now the address database in the FIAS structure is used. To obtain an address from a new address base, the "FIAS Address" button is used, which call a new dialog for selecting elements of a structured address. The procedure for working with directories of types of address elements has been changed. Since the FIAS address database and the new _AddressInp_v09.xsd scheme do not use directories, to support the schemes "Land-plan", "Map (plan)", "Zones" and others, functions have been added to verify symbolic values of types from the FIAS address database with outdated directories.
    There are added the functions of verifying the symbolic values of types coming from the FIAS address database for comparison with outdated directories of address elements supported in the survey.v5 classifier. For the "Reading the cadastral plan of the territory and updating the map" mode, a support of a cadastral extract from USRRE for the building was implemented according to the extract_about_property_build_v01 scheme.

  • 14.04.2020 GIS WebService SE is easily integrated into existing information systems through the use of advanced features of OGC standards
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebService SE version 13.2.0 is developed. The program added new ones and refined existing requests for the publication of metadata, tiles and objects based on advanced OGC standards. For GetFeature requests, an option has been added to output the order of objects sequence in the response (output from the first or from the last). Now, the order of outputting objects during a search can completely coincide with similar searches carried out in GIS "Panorama" 13. The process of integrating the client applications and services based on OGC standards has been simplified by overpatching the GetFeature, GetMap, GetTile requests. For GetFeature requests, a metadata filter has been added with the ability to display in objects only the semantics specified in the request. Into request of obtaining the list of layers GetLayers, besides the basic metadata about a layer, there is added the information about XSD - scheme on which basis it is created. It will allow to reduce the number of the requests transferred to service.
    For all requests, a parameter has been added that is responsible for the sequence order of coordinates (latitude/longitude or longitude/latitude). Now any GIS that supports OGC standards can receive data from GIS WebService SE.

    Service allows to carry out an automatic clustering of objects on a map at the expense of classifiers use. The objects indicated in the classifier will be automatically grouped on the map using standard GetMap and GetTile requests. New requests for saving and deleting documents located in the semantics of map objects located on the GIS Server have been implemented.
    There is improved an output of images for requests according to the advanced standard OGC WMS and WMTS. For point (raster) objects, the possibility of forming with a transparent background is implemented. Parameters are added for setting the color of a transparent background, filters for drawing data by key and semantics. To request height at a point, a parameter has been added to obtain a geodetic height. The new version implements the ability to deactivate a license such as a registration key.

    The requests parameters for obtaining information from the 3D layer are expanded. There are added an output of information from various levels of representation (near, middle, far) and the ability to request textures and description of objects separately.
    This will speed up the process of creating a model on the client. The structure of the displayed parameters is expanded, which allows to obtain more accurate information about the 3D layer.
    GIS WebServiсe SE supports all international standards (OGC WFS, WFS-T, WMS, WMTS, WCS), with the help of which the transmission and display of spatial data is carried out. The program implements the ability to issue tiles for any user or local coordinate system. The application is implemented on Windows and Linux platforms, is compatible with Apache, IIS and nginx web-servers.

    The new version of the program and documentation are available on the website in the Download section.

  • 10.04.2020 GIS ToolKIt Active 13 allows you to create 32-x and 64-bit applications with a free license in any programming environment that supports ActiveX technology
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS ToolKit Active version 13 toolkit has been developed for creating geographic information systems. The new version allows you to create 32x and 64-bit applications with a free license in any programming environment that supports ActiveX technology, for example, Visual Studio.

    GIS ToolKit Active is delivered with source codes of components and the usage examples. The product provides the use of all types of spatial data (bases of geodata), prepared in the GIS "Panorama", including those imported from exchange formats of other geographic information systems (MIF\MID, DXF, SHAPE, KML, GDF).

    GIS ToolKit Active contains a set of the visual and non-visual components allowing to use the spatial and attributive data for display and execution of special calculations. Using these components, geographic information systems of various levels are created (federal, regional, municipal, corporate). The toolkit supports the local, state and international coordinate systems (parameters of more than 4 000 different coordinate systems are included into the delivery complete set). For use of toolkit the extensive Bank of geospatial data is available.

    The base of the geodata can be located both at the workplace (direct access to data) and on a local network or the Internet (access components to the GIS Server or data exchange by the international protocols WMS, WFS, WCS, WMTS are used). The toolkit provides access to spatial data published by geoportals from different manufacturers, including predefined settings for popular geoportals: Yandex, Rosreestr, Panorama, Kosmosnimki, Navitel, Mail, Airplane traffic monitoring and others. The list of available geoportals is constantly expanding. Data from geoportals can be combined with spatial data on the client. There is a set of methods for controlling the visualization parameters of WMS rasters (transparency, brightness, contrast). The new version significantly accelerates the display of geoportals during repeated calls.

    A set of components allows you to create monitoring systems for the moving objects that store the coordinate description in popular databases (Oracle, MS SQL Server, Postgre SQL). Use of special components of navigation and geodata management makes it easy to work with large areas.

    In the new version, the dialog of information about the map object has been improved. There is added the ability to save object descriptions in file formats: SHP/DBF, OGC GML, GeoJSON. You can save the object through the menu item "Save Object" by right-clicking on the bookmark "Metric".
    The installation package includes examples for Visual Studio 2015, Visual Studio 2012. The examples demonstrate the possibilities of searching and highlighting map objects, scaling images, navigation, accessing data on GIS Servers using the TMapGISServer component, displaying the movement of an object by given coordinates using the TMapView and TMapWindow components and others. The version of the toolkit in the Free version allows you to create geographic information systems that can be freely distributed without requiring additional licensing of the toolkit supplier or installation of additional modules.

    The new version of the program is available for download on the Download page.

  • 09.04.2020 Bank of spatial data was supplemented by a map of the Federal Republic of Nigeria
    The geoportal "Bank of spatial data" was supplemented with a map of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, formed according to OpenStreetMap data. The source data was obtained from the Geofabrik website. For work with a map it is possible to 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.rsc). 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.

  • 08.04.2020 In GIS "Panorama" 13 the technologies of collecting and analyzing spatial data for the development of infrastructure of geospatial data are improved
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" version 13.2.0 is developed. The new version of the program has improved tools for monitoring the quality of digital information about the area, for forming a spatial database and metadata, for searching for data, performing calculations and generating reports. The formation of a distributed data warehouse and differentiation of access to spatial information is provided by the GIS Server program. The technology for constructing a spatial data infrastructure based on software products of KB "Panorama" complies with international standards ISO 19100, normative documents of the INSPIRE European Initiative, GOSTs of the Russian Federation and is based on the company's own developments that meet the world's advanced requirements for creating distributed storage and providing wide access to spatial data of federal, regional and municipal levels.

    In the "Preparing for printing" section of the list of applications, the "Report Designer" application has been added for quick creation of graphic documents using maps insets and image insets.
    The wizard for creating a new project allows by "one-click" to form a template of graphic document with ready-made layout and footers (headers, corner stamps and other elements).
    Modes for drawing maps insets and images inserts, editing content, positioning and scaling images inside the insets make it easy to create visual and informative graphic documents.
    The creation of new and an editing of existing templates is supported for their further replication when creating new graphic documents.
    The dimensions of the printed fields of created document are automatically transferred to the print dialog, which allows you to quickly print a document without selecting a printable area and setting indents.

    New types of objects semantics are added: semantics the numerical formula and semantics the symbolical formula. New types complement the programmable semantics the formula, the value of which is calculated in the connected iml-libraries. For new types of computed semantics, mathematical or logical expressions are defined that are executed without programming. For the numerical formula in semantics description the mathematical expression (formula) is indicated that contains numbers, mathematical operations, links to the values of semantics of object, its area, perimetre, coordinates of the first point in meters or degrees, coordinates of the geometrical center of object and other properties. For example, the following operations can be used as mathematical operations: +, -, *, /, max, min, arm, sin, cos, tg, ctg, abs, sqrt2, sqrt3, pow2, pow3.

    To insert the semantics value into the formula, the symbol # is indicated behind which there is a code of semantics and in brackets a value by default is contained. For example, # 1 (10) - take the value of semantics 1, if the object does not have semantics with code 1, take the value 10. For an approximate estimate of the timber stock in the forest, one can use the expression: S/(#61(1)*#61(1))*PI*#60(0.5)*#60(0.5)/4*#1(4). Divide the forest's area S by the area occupied by one tree - semantics 61 (Distance between trees) squared, and multiply by the volume of wood of the tree obtained by the semantics 60 (Thickness) and 1 (Relative height).

    For a symbolic formula, in the semantics description, a string template is specified containing one or more links to semantics of an object of the form #XX (YY), where XX is the semantics code, YY is the value of the semantic characteristic if it is absent. For example: #101(5)storey building\#3(RESIDENTIAL) - take from the object the value of semantics with code 101, if not, the value 5 will be assigned, add the symbols "storey building" and the following semantics with code 3, the default value is RESIDENTIAL.

    The symbolical formula supports special characters for code recording of values, the same as for the formation of the title text. For example, #XX.*(Z^P), where #XX is the digital code of semantics (from 1 to 65535), * is an indication of accuracy (from 0 to 9), reduction of the value (s) or line break (w), Z is the default value, P is the string formatting options (^P1^P2^P3...). For example: X=#32205.3 Y=#32206.3 H=#32207.3(0) - form a coordinate line with an accuracy of the 3rd sign from the service semantics; #46!1()(#11!1())#55.s() - form a reference designation for the road, including the width of the coating, the total width, the designation of the coating material. When editing the coordinates or semantics of an object, the values of semantic formulas are automatically recalculated. The choice of type of semantics and entering of formulas is carried out in the task the Classifier Editor.

    The mode "Recalculation of coordinates in text files" from the Map Computer task is improved. As the initial data the text files with coordinates in arbitrary coordinate system are used. Text files with coordinates can be loaded from XLS tables, databases and other sources. The description of a format of the used text file is presented in the electronic help for the mode. The choice of parameters of the input and output coordinate systems of a list of points is carried out in the following ways: by entering numerical values in the dialog; by using the EPSG code; from the list of coordinate systems of the XML file (for example, "LCS of the Subjects of the Russian Federation.xml").

    All types of maps, projections and ellipsoids supported in the GIS Panorama system are available for recalculation of coordinates. The transformation of coordinates from the input user projection to the output projection is performed through geodetic coordinates on the common earth ellipsoid WGS84.

    The dialog "Select Object" has been improved. On the bookmark "Metrics" the possibility of updating of object from files of formats: SHP/DBF, OGC GML, GeoJSON is added. You can update an object or only its metric through the items in the context menu "Update object metric" or "Update object". In the Map Editor, a mode for copying metric data of one map object into another object was added. The task is intended to perform actions on copying the coordinates from a specified object or group of selected objects.

    A new way of a choice of square objects on a map - only on the object contour is added. The main mode of the object choice is the mouse-click inside the object or along its contour. This mode complicates the enumeration of objects if in one point there is a large number of areal objects. For example, areal objects of territories are displayed in the following order: City - District - Region. The choice of objects is performed in the reverse order: Region - District - City. With the main mode of a choice the city territory will be chosen only from the third time. At a choice of the areal object on the contour the city territory can be chosen from the first time. Customizing the mode of a choosing the areal objects is carried out through the main menu of the program:Options\Square objects choice on the contour.

    The task "Search by name" has been improved. Possibility of line-by-line search or text marking by full (partial) coincidence is added. Multiline text can be loaded from a text file, pasted from a buffer, or entered in the appropriate field. For example, the mode allows you to select on the map all objects containing in the semantics of "Name" one of the lines of a multi-line list.

    The restriction on the size of a multi-line title on the map is excluded. When a line longer than 126 characters is entered in the "Label editing" dialog, an service record with code 32860 with the entered text is created in the semantics of the object, and the link "# 32860" is saved in the label text. When editing text, an automatic updating the text of label and semantics is carried out. If the text becomes shorter than 126 characters, the service semantics will be deleted.

    The task "Calculation of semantics by entering objects" is improved. The process of transferring the established semantic characteristics from entering objects into selected polygons is accelerated. The acceleration was achieved by improving the search algorithm for objects included in the polygon by determining their belonging by the calculated center of coordinates. When exporting a vector map to DXF and MIF\MID formats, the title text of the form #XXX is replaced with the value of the corresponding semantics.

    The new version of the program is available for download in the Download section.

In the new version there are increased the productivity of the data analysis and speed of constructing tiles at the expense of creation of treelike structure of spatial data and possibility of cutting of tiles byrasters and matrixes "on the fly", without their preliminary transformation. The program added parameters for customizing the quality of generated tiles (map image the printer/screen, quality of graphics output, RAM consumption, and others). The list of supported matrixes for publishing data and keeping them in up-to-date state has been expanded. Ability is added to set the configuration directory using the config.xml file and install multiple copies of the program. Configuration files for project parameters and created matrixes are separated. Administrator interface is improved. There are added the parameters for tuning the performance of the service. Ability is added to select the format of the name and directory of the created tile: scale/row/row_column, scale/row/column, scale/column/row and others.

    Panorama Imagery Service is a service designed to create and update tile pyramids in PNG, PNG8 or JPEG formats using spatial data managed by the GIS Server program. Pyramids of tiles are published using OGC WMTS protocol by service the GIS WebService SE. As the clients of services, there can be various GIS supporting the OGC WMTS protocol and users of the GIS WebServer SE program. Pyramids of tiles can be created on the base of a combination of digital vector maps, space and aerial photography, matrixes of elevations, data from geoportals and other data.

  • 06.04.2020 GIS Panorama Mini provides a multi-scale representation of geospatial objects based on a dataset with the highest spatial resolution
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS Panorama Mini version 13.1.0 for the x64 platform is developed. In the new version of the program the tools of displaying geospatial data in various scales are improved. The map atlas provides a quick transition between overlapping maps of different scales, coordinate systems and projections. Atlas of maps can be represented as a tree of a group of projects. The group of projects includes various types of data - vector, raster and matrix maps, as well as map projects (MPT). By means of the module "Manager of maps" the convenient mechanism of systematization of metadata about cartographical resources in your local network is available. Manual and automatic search in the local network of various vector, raster and matrix maps, binary data of the SXF and TXF format, as well as classifiers and files of cartographic projects. The manager of maps provides conducting the user information about maps and hierarchical interrelation between them in a database. The manager of maps organises the representation of a database in the form of a tree and provides visualisation in various scales of vector, raster and matrix maps. The mechanism of Insets provides displaying a map, a raster or a matrix in the form of an illustration over open region of works. The data in the insert can have its own scale, projection, coordinate system, classifier, not related to the open region of work. The location of the inset in the work region, the scale of display and other parameters are customized in the "Embedded objects list" dialog on the "Inset" bookmark (View - Embedded objects list).
    Support for the mechanism of pyramids of tiles allows to improve significantly quality of displaying the geospatial data for various scales. GIS Panorama Mini provides the displaying the packed pyramids of tiles stored in a database under the control of SQLite DBMS, in BIR, Mbtiles and other formats. Preparation of a pyramid of tiles is carried out in ImageryCreator program by the vector maps, remote sensing data and matrixes of heights of a relief and terrain objects. Access to the pyramids of tiles is carried out both offline without the use of server applications, and in client-server mode through the GIS WebService using the OGC WMTS protocol or through the GIS Server version 8.3 and higher.

    In the new version of the program, the dialog "Object selection" has been improved.

  • 03.04.2020 In the professional vectorizer "Panorama-editor" the tools of automated creation and updating of topographic and special maps are improved
    In KB "Panorama" the professional vectorizer "Panorama-editor" version 13.1.0.2 for the x64 platform is developed. In the new version of the program, automated map generalization has been improved. The "Automated generalization of topographical maps" complex is used to convert a map of the source scale to a map of a smaller scale (destination scale). The program optimizes the algorithms for generalizing small objects - reconciling of objects adjacent to deleted ones. There are refined the files of parameters for the modes: formation of an output map, recoding of objects, adaptation of small objects, title of objects.

    Processing of large regions of maps is accelerated. And with it there are performed a filtering and generalizing the contours of objects, transformation of the narrow areal rivers into linear ones, an assigning the thickness of the rivers (thickening from source to mouth), a restricting the boundaries of visibility of rivers and roads of low significance, selecting buildings in compact planning, a leveling the buildings along roads, a creating the objects of the mathematical basis, a signing the objects with new types of symbols according to the semantics of objects. The processing of small reservoirs has been accelerated, during the processing of which the search for adjacent cover objects (forests, meadows) and the uniting the removed small reservoirs with adjacent cover objects are performed.

    In the new version in the “Map Editor”, the mode of editing the title created on the semantics of object has been improved. To change the text of the title, you can go to the source - the semantics of the object linked with the title. For correction of the displayed text in dialog of title editing, the "Title source" button is provided. By its pressing in the "Semantics" bookmark of "Select Object" dialog it is possible to set new value of corresponding semantics. When updating and saving semantics, the text of the linked titles will automatically be replaced with a new one in accordance with the specified display format. The automatic synchronization of the text of title linked to the semantics of the map object has been expanded. Creation of the titles linked with objects is carried out using the map editor tools: Create the title of line on semantic, Create the title on semantics ("Title" group). To synchronize the title text with the semantics of the linked object, special code records of the text in the title metric are used, which begin with the symbol "#". Code record can, for example, look like: "#9(~)\H=#4.1(~)" where there are indicated the links to semantics "Name" (9), "Absolute height" (4), transition to the next line "\" and number of digits of the fractional part of the real number ".1". In parentheses there are written the default values, or the sign of deleting the line "~" in the absence of semantics. If the object has both semantics (9 and 4) on the map, the linked title looks like: "Lukovo\H=123.4." In the absence of semantics 9, the title has the form: "H=123.4". A detailed description of the format for recording a string with examples is given on the help page: http://help13.gisserver.ru/ru/Rscedit/index.html?creating_title.html

    The file format for storing the description of the models line of the map editor has been changed. The description of the models line is saved in the Log folder in the file of EDTX format.
    When you open models saved in the EDT format, the file is automatically converted to the EDTX format. Each line of models has a user-defined individual name, which allows you to quickly navigate when choosing the desired object.

    The dialog "Object selection" has been improved. On the bookmark "Metric" there is added the ability to save the description of the object in file formats: SHP/DBF, OGC GML, GeoJSON. You can save the object through the menu item "Save Object" by pressing the right mouse button.
    There is added the ability to view the result of the description of the title format when using service characters and words as a tooltip when you hover over the title. A list of service symbols and words can be found by clicking on the "Service symbols" button.

    A new module "Floor Plan Editor " has been added to the "Geodesy Editor", which is a set of new specialized modes arranged in a separate toolbar. The module includes the basic functions necessary for the quick and high-quality creation of graphic documents of floor plans of buildings and constructions in the established form and accepted conventional symbols. The wizard for creating a new project allows by one-click to form a template of the graphic document with ready-made layout and footers (headers, corner stamps, etc.).

    In the module “Map (plan) of a land management object”, when processing semantics containing the name of the MapPlan XML file, the functions of forming a short (when writing) and full file name (when reading) are added. Functions are added for correct copying of maps with links from one computer onto another one. The function of "intelligent" checking the geonyms of address element according to the scheme AddressInp_v05.xsd is developed, since there are no directories of types of address objects for the _AddressInp_v09.xsd scheme. At the input of the function, the name of the type of the addressable object, for example, "street", at the exit, the geonym "str". The function of checking geonyms is used in the dialog "Land survey plan" and "Map (plan) of the land management object" for updating the values of the customer address obtained from the cadastral database. So as the base is maintained simultaneously for all types of cadastral documents, the structured address can differ for the technical plan, a map (plan), a land survey plan.

    In the task "Saving a vector map into files of graphic formats", the list of output file formats is expanded. Along with the BMP, TIFF, JPEG and RSW formats, the formation of a map image in a PNG file is added. A document fragment of a digital map of any kind and composition, including vector maps, rasters and matrixes, as well as geospatial data from external Internet resources (WMS and WFS services) can be saved. There is implemented the ability to save the map image by the selected area, by the page format and by the dimensions of the selected objects, for example, by the dimensions of the frames of nomenclature sheets.

  • 24.03.2020 Training-presentation materials on the possibilities of the technology for creating high-precision 3D-terrain models were prepared
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" refined the technology of forming a high-precision measuring three-dimensional terrain model. Using this technology, an accurate 3D terrain model can be quickly obtained in several ways and with a combination of various input data.

    A realistic high-precision 3D-model of the terrain can be obtained by shooting the terrain using unmanned aerial photography systems, processing and displaying the obtained data. The software imports three-dimensional models from tile models in the TLS format (Agisoft Tiled Model), point clouds in the Agisoft OC3 format and LAS files into the DB3D format. The database of three-dimensional tiles in DB3D format is used to store and display 3D models in the form of three-dimensional tiles from data of any type, scale range and length.

    To obtain a 3D terrain model, high-altitude data (matrixes or tin models), space and aerial photographs, geoportal data and vector two-dimensional maps, for example, free maps on the base of OpenStreetMap, can be used. In this case, the terrain model is created by superimposing automatically created tiles with images or images of maps onto a high-altitude base (Applications. Building a 3D model). From vector two-dimensional maps, information on the location and characteristics of objects is added onto the terrain model. And for their volumetric display, the libraries of standard 3D models are used, which are supplied with the KB Panorama software.
    All the described options for obtaining a three-dimensional terrain model can be used simultaneously or in any combination in desktop and Web applications. Examples of using the technology are shown in the video material the "GIS WebServer SE. Possibilities of creating realistic 3D-models of terrain", which is available for review in the Video lessons section.

    Initial data on the territory of the city of Yekaterinburg were provided by the joint-stock company "Racurs", and the model of the Naval Cathedral of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker (Kronshtadt) by the LLC "Goescan" company.

  • 18.03.2020 "Workstation of agronomist" automates the creation of fertilizer maps according to satellite field monitoring

The new version has expanded the functions of obtaining and viewing data of remote sensing of the Earth within the boundaries of agricultural land. Into the tasks line of satellite monitoring, there is added a package obtaining of maps of inhomogeneity zones on several contours of an arable land. The new mode simplifies work with a large number of fields, allows you to download maps of a given number of zones with a similar state of vegetation, or to calculate maps of nitrogen application. Differentiated fertilizer application according to inhomogeneity maps or nitrogen content maps makes it possible to increase productivity by rational selection of fertilizer doses.

    When creating maps of heterogeneity zones with automatic selection of images, the amount of information on the contour of the arable land as a whole and for each zone separately was increased. Together with the map, the numbers of the most differing zones, the general level of heterogeneity, the index of heterogeneity and productivity of the entire land plot are saved, and the description of each zone is supplemented by local indices of heterogeneity and productivity. This information can be used in a more detailed analysis of the land plot state.

    Into the mode "Viewing Remote Sensing Data" the window has been added for simultaneous viewing the matrixes of several vegetation indexes onto a contour of one agricultural land. This allows you to visually analyze the state of vegetation. The mode is intended for an unloading the maps of zoning by nitrogen of a working plot into a file-task of the onboard computer. Nitrogen zoning maps are loaded to a local disk or GIS Server in the satellite monitoring mode "Obtaining nitrogen demand maps". When unloading maps, the folder structure of the on-board computer is taken into account. The following types of on-board computers are supported: Trimble, Amazone, Raven, AgLeader, JohnDeere, Topcon and others.

    Modes of satellite monitoring work with the "Panorama AGRO" database and support a data placement on a GIS Server for collective work in multi-user access mode.

  • 19.02.2020 Article about technologies of creating and applying spatial data for automated vehicle control is published
    The KB "Panorama" systematized the experience of applying the software technologies "Panorama" to create and use spatial data in the field of automation of traffic control of vehicles.

    Modern cars have long been able to brake and accelerate on their own, to determine their location and distance to obstacles. Cars are equipped with an increasing number of sensors and equipments of technical vision. To achieve the maximum level of vehicles automation and solving the growing transport needs in the world the intelligent transport systems (ITS) are being developed. ITS is the result of combining modern modeling technologies, real-time control, as well as communication technologies.

    The use of digital maps in ITS will allow to implement the autonomous movement of vehicles in adverse weather conditions, at night, without equipping the road infrastructure with expensive equipment, as well as to minimize operating costs for maintaining the system.

    KB Panorama has tested technologies of creating, updating and publishing spatial data about structural elements of the road, lanes, road markings, road signs and traffic lights in the form of a digital road model (DRM). DRM database is implemented as a cloud service in which digital data about the road and other information that somehow affect the road situation are consolidated.

    Technology of creating and using the DRM, described in the article, will provide developers of highly automated vehicles with high-precision digital maps and navigation data necessary for constructing planned lines of the car’s movement in a dynamically changing road-transport environment.

    As part of the software for maintaining the DRM, several components should be distinguished. Automated technologies for preparation of digital information about the road are implemented in the GIS "Panorama". Web-services and services of publishing DRM data that support an information exchange with external databases and consumers of spatial data are implemented by means of GIS WebService SE and GIS WebServer SE. GIS ToolKit and GIS WebToolKit provide API and SDK tools for developing applications for controlling an automated vehicle based on DRM data. The catalog of spatial objects that characterize the elements of the road, road service, patterns and conditions of traffic is implemented on the basis of the digital classifier road2000.rsc, which contains the necessary list of objects for creating objects and layers of DRM.

    The article can be found on the website in the article section. KB "Panorama" invites all interested parties to scientific and technical cooperation to develop the functionality of the digital road model.

The location of a single immovable complex on the map is provided.

    In the "Workstation of urban planner", along with various real estate objects, information on land plots and their owners is stored. Maintaining urban development regulations for the use of territories allows us to establish rules for the use of land plots and capital construction objects.

    Automation of the formation of spatial and logical relationships between the considered real estate and land plots simplifies the use of the software package. The "What the subject owns" mode allows you to get complete information about the property of the copyright holder.

    To create a cadastral plan of the territory, a loading of information from the XML files of the Federal Register is used. The synchronization mode allows you to configure the relationship between the semantics of cadastral map objects and the information stored in the database.

    A special place in the program is occupied by the section with documents, which allows you to store various attributive information about documents. Documents can be grouped by type, purpose, regional affiliation and other user data. A document record may contain various attributes that the user himself creates and assigns to a group of documents. Files that can be viewed and edited in a specialized program are attached to the document record. One document can be used for several land plots and objects of real estate. Flexible customization of stored information in a database allows to use the "Workstation of the urban-planner" not only for the urban development purposes, but also for accounting for lands and objects of real estate.

  • 10.01.2020 Technologies of Imagery Service for creating and updating tile pyramids by spatial data are implemented for CentOS and Astra Linux SE platforms
    In KB "Panorama" the Imagery Service version 8.4.2 is developed for operating systems CentOS and Astra Linux SE (Release "Smolensk"). In the new version a support of domain authorization for the GIS Server is added. The mode of deleting tiles for the project is implemented. It allows you to delete tiles to certain territories, scales and matrixes that are specified in the program settings.

    Panorama Imagery Service is a Linux service designed to create and update tile pyramids in PNG, PNG8 or JPEG formats using spatial data managed by the GIS Server program. Pyramids of tiles are published using OGC WMTS protocol by service the GIS WebService SE. As the clients of services, there can be various GIS supporting the OGC WMTS protocol and users of the GIS WebServer SE program. Pyramids of tiles can be created on the base of a combination of digital vector maps, space and aerial photography, matrixes of elevations, data from geoportals and other data.

    The program supports standard tile pyramids: GlobalCRS84Scale (standard matrix for representing spatial data in EPSG:4326 projection), GlobalCRS84Pixel (matrix for intuitive representation of spatial data), GoogleCRS84Quad (matrix compatible with Google data in EPSG:4326 projection), GoogleMapsCompatible (matrix compatible with Google data in EPSG:3857 projection, also used in Google Maps) and others. To read the source data, Panorama Imagery Service can connect to the GIS Server or open data sets on the local network. The program monitors data changes - by the transaction log for vector data, by the time of updating raster and matrix data, and automatically updates the tiles on which the changes occurred.

    New versions of programs are available on the website in the Download section.

  • 08.01.2020 In GIS Panorama Mini the tools of access to geospatial databases are expanded
    In KB "Panorama" the Panorama Mini version 13.0.4 for the x64 platform is developed. In the new version a support of the international format OGC 12-128r15 GeoPackage version 1.2.1 (*.gpkg) is added. This format is a SQLite 3 database that stores tiles of various formats, their coordinate system, matrixes of descriptions, and metadata. GeoPackage format is used in applications for providing access to spatial information: maps, images, matrixes of elevations. The format can be used in cloud storages and for simplifying the exchange of information, since all data is stored in one file.
    Ability is added to receive and display packed pyramids of tiles from GIS Server. Pyramids of tiles can be in BIR, Mbtiles formats, stored in a database managed by SQLite DBMS. Pyramids of tiles can be created in the Imagery Creator program, including in the environment of the Databank of digital maps and remote sensing data, using vector maps, remote sensing data and matrixes of heights of relief and terrain objects. Access to tiles pyramids can be offline without the use of server applications, as well as in client-server mode through GIS WebService SE via the OGC WMTS protocol or through the GIS Server. When accessing client-server mode, the tiles that were accessed are automatically cached on the client's computer, similar to working through a web browser.
    The task of connecting geoportals has been improved. List of connected geoportals is updated. Data from geoportals can be connected as a background to user data for solving various application tasks (validation, printing reports, reconciling data and others). Vector layers obtained by the OGC WFS protocol can serve as initial data. The program supports a monitoring of changes and tracking moving objects in a near-real time mode. If the geoportal or service supports the OGC WFS-T transaction protocol, then the task allows not only to receive, display objects and monitor their updates, but also to edit them, transferring changes to the server to display these changes to other clients. Displaying all geoportals is accelerated. There is added the ability to display and save data from Rosreestr geoportals without duplicating signatures on the screen in various projections, including for local coordinate systems. Displaying the Rosreestr geoportal is significantly accelerated upon repeated calls.
    Support for GSK-2011 and PZ-90.11 coordinate systems is implemented. The creation of maps in the GSK-2011 system, the conversion of projections and coordinate systems of maps, matrixes and rasters is provided. The new national coordinate systems were adopted by Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation of December 28, 2012 N 1463 "On unified state coordinate systems".
    A new type of maps, Topographic PZ-90.11 (Pulkovo2017), based on the use of the ellipsoid PZ-90.11 and the Gauss-Krueger projection, has been added into the "View Passport" task. As system of heights the Average level of world ocean (geoid) corresponding to the EGM2008 model is established. Support for a new type of map is added into the task "Creation of rule". In the dialogs for recalculating and displaying the coordinates of the current point on the map, the coordinate system PZ-90.02 was replaced by PZ-90.11.
    Into the map passport the property "Use alternative fonts" is added. This property is necessary, for example, for the correct display of OSM maps in national languages using the standard classifier map5000m.rsc. The classifier includes topographic fonts in which not all language encoding are implemented. The installation includes the altfonts.xml file, in which for such fonts the alternative fonts supporting the required encoding are specified.
    To split the set of point signs into groups and display them, the algorithm of an automatic clustering is implemented. In the "Classifier Editor" tools of clusters description are added. Description includes: views of objects relating to each type of cluster, cell sizes vertically and horizontally, semantics code to indicate the current number of objects in the cluster, view of a conventional sign of a cluster, a limiting percent of magnifying the size of a cluster's sign and the limiting number of objects, and the limiting number of objects, corresponding to the maximum size of the cluster sign. The cluster symbol can be programmable, that allows you by various ways to set off a type of a cluster and to change properties of a sign depending on number of objects in a cluster (signature of the number, size of a sign, brightness). When grouping in a virtual cluster cell more than one object of a given type, their conventional signs will automatically be replaced by a conventional sign of the cluster, the center of which will have an average coordinate of the objects included in it. When you change the scale, the cluster configuration automatically changes. Maps with clusters customized in the RSC classifier are automatically supported in all desktop and web applications, as well as in applications developed in the GIS ToolKit and GIS Constructor.
    Algorithm of creating signatures of objects according to their semantic characteristics is changed. At updating semantics of object there are automatically updated the corresponding semantics of all signatures created for the object in the "Map Editor" or in the task of "Creation of titles by objects semantics". The task of creating titles by objects semantics, taking into account the processing of multipolygons selected on the map, has been improved. A title is formed for each contour that belongs to the multipolygon and is put in accordance with the dialog settings.
    "Map Editor" task is improved. In the mode of creating a linear object, a new option "Add to object" is added, which provides a joining of the created contour to the contour of the already existing linear object on the map. The mode of the map editor "Paste & Cut - Cut of polygon object by object" has been improved. When cutting a polygon object, support of multipolygons is added. When an ordinary polygon object is cut, the result is ordinary polygonal ones. When cutting a multipolygon, the result is a multipolygon.
    "Select Object" dialog has been improved. In order to increase the information content of the object’s scheme, the color of the contours has been changed in the "Metric" bookmark: for ordinary objects, the main contour now is displayed in blue color, and subobjects - in pink color. In multipolygons, all external contours are displayed in blue color, the rest - in pink. The new color scheme allows you visually to verify the correctness of the subobjects occurrence. On the "Semantics" bookmark, the ability to disable sorting of the object characteristics table has been added. Data will be displayed in the sequence of their addition to the map object. Enabling/Disabling sorting can be done through the "Sort" context menu item.
    The mode "Image shutter" is improved. By means of this mode the analysis of various overlapping opaque images can be made by shifting their borders. Possibility to apply the "shutter" for matrixes and geoportals is added. The mode is started through the main menu View/Image shutter. The task "Saving vector map into file of BMP, TIFF, RSW format" has been improved. The mode of page-by-page saving of the map image to graphic files by page format is added.

    Updating the Panorama Mini version 12 to version 13 till June, 1st, 2020 is free for users who purchased the Panorama Mini version 12 after December, 1st, 2018, as well as for those who have a valid technical support agreement for version 12. The new version of program is available for download on the Download page.

  • 06.01.2020 Maps of the regions of the Ural Federal District were updated on the geoportal "Bank of spatial data"
    On the geoportal "Bank of spatial data", the maps of regions of the Ural Federal District, which were formed according to OpenStreetMap data, were updated.

    The composition of the maps includes Kurgan, Sverdlovsk, Tyumen, Chelyabinsk Oblasts, the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug and the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug - Yugra. The source data was obtained from the Geofabrik website. For work with the maps it is possible to use the program of GIS Panorama Mini 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.rsc). 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 and images".

  • 03.01.2020 The professional vectorizer "Panorama-editor" has improved the technology of automated generalization and quality control of topographic maps
    In KB "Panorama" the professional vectorizer "Panorama-Editor" version 13.0.4 for the x64 platform is developed. In the new version, automated generalization of maps has been improved. Processing of large regions of maps is accelerated. On a computer with average performance the conversion of 36 sheets of a map of scale 1: 100 000 into 9 sheets of a map of scale 1: 200 000 takes less than two hours (up to 15 minutes per sheet). And with it there are performed a filtering and generalizing the contours of objects, transformation of the narrow areal rivers into linear ones, an assigning the thickness of the rivers (thickening from source to mouth), a restricting the boundaries of visibility of rivers and roads of low significance, selecting buildings in compact planning, a leveling the buildings along roads, a creating the objects of the mathematical basis, a signing the objects with new types of symbols according to the semantics of objects.
    The task "Quarters generalisation" has been refined, designed for automatic uniting of closely located same-type quarters and adjustment of quarters with linear objects of the road network. In order to eliminate the contradictory overlap of the objects of the map of the derived scale, there are added the processes of adjustment of quarters and removing the buildings in the area of quarters with black filling.
    In the new version of the program, algorithms of generalization for small objects have been improved: adjustment of objects adjacent to deleted ones. The processing of small reservoirs has been accelerated, during the processing of which the search for adjacent cover objects (forests, meadows) and the uniting the removed small reservoirs with adjacent cover objects are performed. The uniting is performed if there is the presence of a significant area (contour) of adjacency of the analyzed objects. Parameters files for the modes have been refined: formation of output map, recoding objects, generalization of small objects, title of objects. Customizing filters of the objects processed at formation of an output map is simplified. The new method allows to perform faster and more flexible customization of the objects types copied onto the output map. The quality of signing the names of settlements has been improved: a new algorithm for selecting a place for signing perform a search for the most free place from the contours. New signatures are implemented in the form of vector symbols containing complex signatures that are used to sign characteristics of bridges, dams, locks, dams, ferries, fords, forests, settlements and other objects.
    Complex signatures allow you to automatically adapt the type of signature taking into account the presence or absence of objects characteristics. It is enough to add, delete or change the semantics of such symbol and the type of signature automatically changes. This approach allows you to completely replace obsolete types of characters with the localization of "Mixed" with vector symbols. Classifiers 25t05gm.rsc, 50t05gm.rsc, 100t05gm.rsc, 200t05gm.rsc, 500t05gm.rsc, 1m05gm.rsc are updated, and also there are added the files of parameters of maps generalization of scales from 1: 25 000 to 1: 1 000 000.
    The program has expanded the list of tasks for automated processing of vector maps in the task "Map processing according to the scenario." The new task "Correction of object metrics" is developed. It performs the removal of outliers and double points in the specified tolerance; removal of the initial and final coincident segments of linear objects; cutting contours of linear objects at the junction points; cutting contours of areal objects at points of junction and self-intersection; conversion of multilines into simple lines; transformation of multipolygons into simple areal objects with internal subobjects.

    In the program of correcting the metric of objects a processing of multipolygons is accelerated. For example, time of correcting the metric of a test set of maps with more than 3 million objects was reduced from 5 hours to 30 minutes, and about 50 thousand topology errors were corrected. Upon completion of work, the number of corrected errors is recorded into the log "View error". The task is called through the main menu: Tools - Map processing by scenario - Correction of object metrics.
    The task "Checking the quality of a vector map" has been improved. Checking the vector map is carried out in accordance with the selected control scheme containing a list of types and parameters of checking. The format of the checking parameters schema file has been changed from binary CXM to textual XML. In the \Control.Dot\ folder, the XML files for control parameters schemes with the extension * .CXML have been updated.
    In the task "Vector map Checking", the automatic correction of the metric of areal and linear objects has been improved. In polygon objects, there are removed the outliers and vertex duplications, all types of self-crossings, crossings of contours and errors of locations of subjects are corrected. Adjacent contours of one object are combined, intersecting contours are divided into separate objects. In the objects having errors of locations of subjects, the description order is corrected: the subject having the maximum area becomes the main one, the subjects located inside other subjects are stored into separate objects. In linear objects, there are removed the outliers and vertexes duplications, coinciding segments, the self-joining is corrected (joining of non-consecutive segments of one contour). The contours having the self-joining, are divided into separate objects. To correct the metrics of objects, it is necessary to perform "Check of self-crossings and locations of subjects" in the "Edit" mode. The corrected objects have a topologically correct metric description, which provides the calculation of correct areas, simplifies the construction of road network graphs, and allows you to combine and cut areas of vector data according to specified conditions. Automatic correction of the metrics of map objects allows you to speed up the processing of vector maps obtained from any sources that do not have a strict standard for checking the metric information.
    In the task the "Checking the quality of a vector map" according to a control scheme, tools of checking the metadata of the map are added. Metadata is formed by the task the "Map passport" according the standards of ISO 19115:2003, Geographic information - Metadata and ISO/TS 19139, Geographic information - Metadata - XML schema implementation. Metadata is saved in the XML format as a separate file onto each sheet of the map. Metadata allows you to enter additional information about the map (data on the manufacturer, data on the technology of creation) and use it in the conducting the automated banks of the spatial data.
    The task "Check of vector map quality" has been improved. Checking the vector map is carried out in accordance with the selected control scheme containing a list of types and parameters of checking. The format of the checking parameters schema file has been changed from binary CXM to textual XML. In the \Control.Dot\ folder, the XML files for control parameters schemes with the extension * .CXML have been updated.
    In the task "Vector map Checking", the automatic correction of the metric of areal and linear objects has been improved.

To correct the metrics of objects, it is necessary to perform "Check of self-crossings and locations of subjects" in the "Edit" mode. The corrected objects have a topologically correct metric description, which provides the calculation of correct areas, simplifies the construction of road network graphs, and allows you to combine and cut areas of vector data according to specified conditions. Automatic correction of the metrics of map objects allows you to speed up the processing of vector maps obtained from any sources that do not have a strict standard for checking the metric information.
    In the task the "Checking the quality of a vector map" according to a control scheme, tools of checking the metadata of the map are added. Metadata is formed by the task the "Map passport" according the standards of ISO 19115:2003, Geographic information - Metadata and ISO/TS 19139, Geographic information - Metadata - XML schema implementation. Metadata is saved in the XML format as a separate file onto each sheet of the map. Metadata allows you to enter additional information about the map (data on the manufacturer, data on the technology of creation) and use it in the conducting the automated banks of the spatial data.
    In the "Checking the quality of a vector map" task, the output of reporting documents into an HTML file is added. Outputting reports into HTML file allows generating reporting documents without using office programs. There is added the ability to run multiple instances of the GIS "Panorama-editor" program for execution of checking various vector maps with issuing reports in HTML format (a report in MS Word is executed from only one program). The output of reporting documents into an HTML file is based on a pre-prepared template. For the "Checking the quality of a vector map" task, a template for the HTML document mapcontr.htm was created in a text editor. The template defines the main structure of an HTML document and contains its settings, such as fonts, page settings, formatting, and styles. Upon termination of working the "Checking the quality of a vector map" program, the HTML report files with the control results for each card and the final report containing information on the results of processing all the maps will be saved in the directory for placing output maps and reporting documents.

    In GIS "Panorama-editor" a support for GSK-2011 and PZ-90.11 coordinate systems is added. The creation of maps in the GSK-2011 system, the conversion of projections and coordinate systems of maps, matrixes and rasters is provided. The new national coordinate systems were adopted by Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation of December 28, 2012 N 1463 "On unified state coordinate systems".
    A new type of maps, Topographic PZ-90.11 (Pulkovo2017), based on the use of the ellipsoid PZ-90.11 and the Gauss-Krueger projection, has been added into the "View Passport" task. As system of heights the Average level of world ocean (geoid) corresponding to the EGM2008 model is established. Support for a new type of map is added into the task "Creation of rule". In the dialogs for recalculating and displaying the coordinates of the current point on the map, the coordinate system PZ-90.02 was replaced by PZ-90.11. Into the map passport the property "Use alternative fonts" is added. This property is necessary, for example, for the correct display of OSM maps in national languages using the standard classifier map5000m.rsc. The classifier includes topographic fonts in which not all language encoding are implemented. The installation includes the altfonts.xml file, in which for such fonts the alternative fonts supporting the required encoding are specified.

    On the basis of classifiers of digital topographic maps (DTM) of 1:50 000 and 1: 100 000 scales, modernized classifiers 50t05gm.rsc and 100t05gm.rsc were prepared, intended for the automated generalization and automation of the creating and updating DTM. The modernized DTM combines the basic properties of a topographic and navigation map. With the help of the task "Creating of passages in settlements" and prepared classifiers, streets and passages in settlements are automatically formed. Tools of automated control and correction of the quality of digital maps provide control of the topology according to the metrics of objects. By created streets and passages along with the road network objects when solving Navigation tasks a graph of roads is formed. A complete road and street network in settlements increases the degree of automation in the forming the maps of smaller scales (generalization). Significantly the composition of the layers is reduced by combining the data of the same type. The order of displaying objects in the classifier is set in accordance with the priority of the layers and the priority of objects in the layer, which makes it unnecessary to use additional layers. In the properties of some objects that are not used in practice when creating a DTM based on remote sensing data, the sign "Obsolete object" is set. Obsolete objects are not displayed in the objects list of the "Create object" dialog, unless the "Obsolete objects" field is enabled. This allows you to store in classifier the objects from the obsolete classifiers "05" and "09" for compatibility, but not display them when creating and updating the map to facilitate the selection of actual types of objects. For the automatic formation of labels using the task "Automatic labels alignment", the corresponding labels are customized according to the semantics of the objects.

    Into the program composition the classifiers of conventional symbols emercom.v2.rsc and map5000m.rsc are added. The classifier of conventional symbols emercom.v2.rsc has been developed for the preparation of cartographic information in the field of civil defense, prevention and liquidation of consequences of emergencies by governing bodies, civil defense forces and the unified state system for the prevention and liquidation of emergency situations (RSChS). In the classifier there is implemented a general list of layers, objects and attributive characteristics of objects that provide solutions to problems in the field of civil defense, prevention and liquidation of consequences of natural and man-made emergencies. The emercom.v2.rsc classifier contains the information: about territories, zones, objects, forces and means affecting the problems of organization, planning and conduct of measures for civil defense and the protection of the population and territories; about the forecast and operational situation arising in the course of military conflicts or as a result of these conflicts, as well as during emergencies of a natural and man-made nature; about planning and conducting activities on civil defense, prevention and liquidation of consequences of emergencies of a natural and man-made character. The modernized classifier of large-scale plans of a scale 1: 5 000 the map5000m.rsc is designed to create topographic plans of cities or city plans in the local coordinate system of scales of 1: 5000, which can be used in territorial planning, maintaining the land and property cadastre, in architecture and urban planning. The codes of the Information Cartographic Support approved by the Head of the VTU General Staff of the Russian Federation in 2007 are taken as the basis of object codes.

    The task of connecting geoportals has been improved. List of connected geoportals is updated. Data from geoportals can be connected as a background to user data for solving various application tasks (validation, printing reports, reconciling data and others). Vector layers obtained by the OGC WFS protocol can serve as initial data. The program supports a monitoring of changes and tracking moving objects in a near-real time mode. If the geoportal or service supports the OGC WFS-T transaction protocol, then the task allows not only to receive, display objects and monitor their updates, but also to edit them, transferring changes to the server to display these changes to other clients. Displaying all geoportals is accelerated. There is added the ability to display and save data from Rosreestr geoportals without duplicating signatures on the screen in various projections, including for local coordinate systems. Displaying the Rosreestr geoportal is significantly accelerated upon repeated calls.

    To split the set of point signs into groups and display them, the algorithm of an automatic clustering is implemented. In the "Classifier Editor" tools of clusters description are added. Description includes: views of objects relating to each type of cluster, cell sizes vertically and horizontally, semantics code to indicate the current number of objects in the cluster, view of a conventional sign of a cluster, a limiting percent of magnifying the size of a cluster's sign and the limiting number of objects, and the limiting number of objects, corresponding to the maximum size of the cluster sign. The cluster symbol can be programmable, that allows you by various ways to set off a type of a cluster and to change properties of a sign depending on number of objects in a cluster (signature of the number, size of a sign, brightness). When grouping in a virtual cluster cell more than one object of a given type, their conventional signs will automatically be replaced by a conventional sign of the cluster, the center of which will have an average coordinate of the objects included in it. When you change the scale, the cluster configuration automatically changes. Maps with clusters customized in the RSC classifier are automatically supported in all desktop and web applications, as well as in applications developed in the GIS ToolKit and GIS Constructor.

    Algorithm of creating signatures of objects according to their semantic characteristics is changed. At updating semantics of object there are automatically updated the corresponding semantics of all signatures created for the object in the "Map Editor" or in the task of "Creation of titles by objects semantics". The task of creating titles by objects semantics, taking into account the processing of multipolygons selected on the map, has been improved. A title is formed for each contour that belongs to the multipolygon and is put in accordance with the dialog settings.

    "Map Editor" task is improved. In the mode of creating a linear object, a new option "Add to object" is added, which provides a joining of the created contour to the contour of the already existing linear object on the map. The mode of the map editor "Paste & Cut - Cut of polygon object by object" has been improved. When cutting a polygon object, support of multipolygons is added. When an ordinary polygon object is cut, the result is ordinary polygonal ones. When cutting a multipolygon, the result is a multipolygon.

    "Select Object" dialog has been improved. In order to increase the information content of the object’s scheme, the color of the contours has been changed in the "Metric" bookmark: for ordinary objects, the main contour now is displayed in blue color, and subobjects - in pink color. In multipolygons, all external contours are displayed in blue color, the rest - in pink. The new color scheme allows you visually to verify the correctness of the subobjects occurrence. On the "Semantics" bookmark, the ability to disable sorting of the object characteristics table has been added. Data will be displayed in the sequence of their addition to the map object. Enabling/Disabling sorting can be done through the "Sort" context menu item.

    The mode "Image shutter" is improved. By means of this mode the analysis of various overlapping opaque images can be made by shifting their borders. Possibility to apply the "shutter" for matrixes and geoportals is added. The mode is started through the main menu View/Image shutter.

    The task "Saving vector map into file of BMP, TIFF, RSW format" has been improved. The mode of page-by-page saving of the map image to graphic files by page format is added.

    GIS "Panorama-editor" allows to create high-quality digital maps with use of the raster image of source cartographic materials, of materials of Remote Sensing of the Earth (results of air and space photographing of a terrestrial surface), and also of results of field geodetic measurements. Program includes advanced tools of quality check of a created vector map, tools of editing the raster image, tools of transforming of raster and vector data.

    Updating the "Panorama-editor" version 12 to version 13 till June, 1st, 2020 is free for users who purchased the "Panorama-editor" version 12 after December, 1st, 2018, as well as for those who have a valid technical support agreement for version 12. The new version of program is available for download on the Download page.
