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:
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.

Igor Pankov, editor-in-chief of the video channel "Land Bulletin", visited the KB "Panorama" and talked to Albert Demidenko, Deputy Director General for Research. During the meeting, topical issues of the forming the spatial data infrastructure of the Russian Federation and the development of the domestic geoinformatics market were discussed.

Specialists of KB "Panorama" in collaboration with Procad S.A. (Republic of Nicaragua) prepared two new training-demonstration maps onto the territory of Nicaragua in Spanish: a geographic map on a scale of 1: 500 000 and a topographic map on a scale of 1: 50 000.
The geographic map on the scale of 1: 500 000 is intended for users who only start to get acquainted with possibilities of "Panorama" software products. The map demonstrates possibilities of visualizing the geographical information, the data about a relief, the superposition of additional thematic layers.
A topographic map on a scale of 1: 50 000 displays about 3 thousand square kilometers of the territory of the Chinandega Department, stretching from the volcano San Cristobal to the western tip of the Kosiguin Peninsula. The map demonstrates the capabilities of

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.
