  • 31.12.2016 In the GIS "Panorama" version 12 the possibilities on work with multispectral multichannel rasters GeoTIFF from GIS Server are expanded
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" of version 12.4.0 for x64 platform is developed. In the new version of the program there is added the possibility to open rasters from the GIS Server which were formed from the GeoTIFF format without copying the image into file RSW (the multispectral multichannel rasters displayed through GDAL library).

    The program improved display of rasters with cutting the images by a frame for various scales. This allows you to more accurately display the mosaic of rasters without discrepancies and overlaps of adjacent raster image when zooming. New implementation of forming the images of the raster's reduced copies allows to improve details of the survey image.

    Converter from SHP format is improved. The converter adds support for file names, field names and attribute values in the national encoding. There is added an automatic identification of the set name and the classifier object (by key or name). Possibility is implemented for creation of the new classifier with the subsequent primary automatic classification of objects and characteristics. Tools are added for customizing the protocol's content of the initial data composition.

    There is improved the task "Assemblage of symbolical semantics" intended for forming the character string as the value of the semantics and assignment of this value to the marked objects. To the list of the original semantics of objects there is added the list of keywords for recording into semantics of metadata of object or of a map (the date of the terrain state, the nomenclature of the map sheet, GUID of a map sheet, object name, layer name, security classification and others).

    In the task "Map Computer" there is modified the mode "Information about the object". The mode allows you to collect the data about the terrain object consisting of a great number of separate parts, by the object identifier (the road number, the river name and so forth). Into dialog the options are added that allow you to collect the object from parts of different layers. It allows to receive more complete information about the object in general and the distribution of properties (semantics) by individual parts.

    In the dialog box "Select object" there is changed the algorithm for calculating the area of the objects having extent on a longitude more than 5 degrees. Extended objects are cut by strips in UTM projection, no more than 5 degrees on a longitude. The total area of objects is calculated by conventional zones and summed. The extended accuracy of calculation of the area is provided at a selecting the "Clarify the area and length" in the menu "Options" and a choice in Select Object dialog in the pop-up menu for item "Accuracy of coordinates display" of the value "Extended".

    In dialog "Search by address" to specify the name of the desired street there is expanded the list of types of semantics. Possibility is added for search of streets by semantics with type "Code from the classifier (directory)". The choice of the name of street is executed from in advance prepared list in the classifier.

    In the module "Geodesy calculations" a processing of orientation angles is improved. Position of any object on the ground is specified in a format of orientation angles between the initial (specified) direction and a direction onto object and distance to the object. Orientated angles of directions are: rotary angle, direction angle and rhumb.

  • 16.12.2016 Training-presentation materials are prepared on using the Databank of digital maps and Remote Sensing Data for conducting and actualization of continuous geo-coverings
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" prepared presentation and its description on application of software complex the Databank of digital maps and Remote Sensing Data to automate the processes of creating and updating continuous geo-coverings. Continuous geo-coverings are popular in the geographic information systems and cartographical Web-applications. The using the standards of WMS, WMTS, WFS-T, WCS provides uniform access to geo-coverings in the form of graphic images, tiles, values of coordinates and characteristics of objects. Technologies of preparing the continuous geo-coverings consist in formation of a mosaic of images from digital maps, space and aerial photographs of terrain and matrixes of heights.

    The databank of digital maps and remote sensing data provides accumulation, storage, retrieval and delivery of spatial datasets. The formation of metadata records and updating the schemes of availability of data sets is performed automatically by placing new sets of data into the repository. The use of metadata provides flexible system of data search by contextual or territorial signs and delivery of the found data sets to consumers in the storage format.

    Key difference of the Databank of digital maps and remote sensing data from other systems of storage of spatial data, is the function of automatic creation of a geo-covering by the chosen in a search result data sets in the user-defined projection and coordinate system. In the composition of metadata geocovering there are stored the criteria of the data sets selection and list of data sets, from which the geocovering is formed. It allows to automate process of updating the geo-coverings at updating of initial data sets or obtaining of new data sets onto a given territory. The software package provides automatic publishing of geo-coverings for remote access of desktop and Web clients. Access to geo-coverings for Web-based applications and desktop clients the program GIS Server provides. Display of geo-coverings in the browser can be done with use of program GIS WebServer SE according to standard protocols OGC: WMS, WMTS, WFS-T and WCS. Processing of requests under these protocols is performed by the GIS WebService SE - the cartographical Web-service which is a part of the Databank of digital maps and remote sensing data.

    The using the Bank of digital maps and remote sensing data allows you to create a geographic information system containing terabytes of spatial data, implementing the optimal model of search and selection of information. Application of base of geo-coverings solves problems of the limited productivity of traditional methods of storage of the spatial data in file system, automates process of actualization of the spatial data and allows to organise cloud GIS technology.

    Presentation materials for using the Databank of digital maps and remote sensing for conducting and actualization of continuous geo-coverings are available on the "Presentation" page. Read the documentation for the software product in the section "Documentation".

  • 14.12.2016 Into GIS Server the tools of direct connection to external databases of spatial data are built-in
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS Server version 7 is developed. In the new version there is implemented a direct connection to databases of geospatial data for viewing tables in the form of maps in the specified conventional signs. In the current version there are supported the databases operated by DBMS PostgreSQL with PostGIS extension and DBMS Oracle. Parameters of displaying a database (tables, data presentation or SQL-request) in the form of a map are stored on the server in a file with DBM extension, having XML structure. Connection parameters to a database (host, port, login, the password and others) are stored separately in a file of parameters of work of the GIS Server program that provides higher degree of protection of these data.

    The database table will be presented in a tree of the source data of the client program (GIS Panorama, GIS "Operator", GIS Panorama 11) by alias of a data source (fictitious name assigned by the server administrator), as any other vector map. At work with the data from tables of databases, the same tools are available as for the vector maps. Tools of connection to databases duplicate the possibilities of the Spatial DB Service, but administration of connection to databases is integrated into the general interface of administration of GIS Server.

    In need of scaling the productivity at the expense of processing the several databases on different servers, it is advisable to use separate instances of the Spatial DB Service.

    GIS Server - is the service of Windows Services intended for providing remote round-the-clock access to the spatial data for users of programs the GIS Panorama, GIS Operator and other programs developed in the environment of GIS ToolKit or the GIS-Constructor for Linux. Server provides remote multi-user access to various types of spatial data: vector, raster, matrix and databases.

  • 20.09.2016 GIS "Panorama" version 12 is developed 25 years after the release of the first program
    Development of Geographic Information System "Panorama" began in 1989. The first version was released in 1991. Next year the SXF exchange format for digital terrain maps was developed. Since 1993 the creation of digital maps in the Topographic Service of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation is performed in the GIS "Panorama". In 1995, the GIS "Panorama" version 5 adopted for the supply of the Russian Federation Armed Forces. GIS "Panorama" Version 7 began to be used for creating digital maps on Roscartography's enterprises since 2001. Currently, more than 44 thousands of registered users use GIS "Panorama" for working with spatial data in information systems for various purposes.

    GIS "Panorama" version 12 is developed for 64-bit platform. Work of the GIS in various applications in terms of volume of used operative memory is optimized at opening the vector maps and remote sensing data of a large volume. For example, at the construction of roads graph on OpenStreetMap maps containing tens of millions of objects in volume more than 10 GB onto the territory of Russia there are formed more than 10 million nodes and arcs, which together with the attributes can not be processed on the x32 platform. Use of all available RAM allows to accelerate the work with maps of large volume in tasks of displaying the spatial data, search and selection of map objects on the user-selected conditions, at editing of large files of objects, in the solution of theoretical and analytical problems. There is supported the work with geodata databases of unlimited volume, as well as with rasters and matrixes in the sizes up to Tbytes and the data of geoportals that can be displayed together with vector terrain maps.

    In the new version of GIS in the task "Navigator 3D" there is implemented a constructing the 3D-model of a relief and surface objects by a cloud of points received at laser scanning of terrain by means of laser radars LIDAR (LIght Detection And Ranging). GIS "Panorama" allows to load a cloud of points from open exchange formats: binary format LAS and the textual format TXT containing array of points with planned point coordinates, height and a code). The cloud of points can be shown as a three-dimensional model with use of the additional data: orthophotomaps or images of terrain from geoportals. The interface of "Navigator 3D" task allows to carry out a filtration of interference, obtained by the terrain scanning. The rough filtration deletes points of individual hindrances, the exact filtration deletes points of the individual and linear hindrances caused by objects such as power lines.

    New task the "Report Editor allows to create and print the documents, including maps, graphics, multi-line text with different attributes, embedded Office documents and tables, out-of-frame designing, coordinate grids and other elements. Printing the entire report or just the current page is performed by one mouse click. The generated report can be saved to disk for later creation on its basis of similar reports.

    The new task the "Automatic arrangement of titles" provides creation and arrangement of titles by semantics of objects without operator's participation. In the process of creating titles their relative position is analyzed to exclude the titles intersection. The sequence of signing the objects is set by the user, which allows at the dense arrangement of objects to place the title of more important objects at the expense of less important. This task allows you to automate the process of maps generalization in part of drawing the titles for various maps elements: settlements, streets, buildings, road network, hydrography, etc.

    The view of dialogue windows and panels of tools is improved. Variable size of the buttons allows you to create the most convenient view of the main window for any screen resolution. The program interface is implemented in Unicode supporting all language standards. The base version of GIS supports Russian and the English interface for all tasks.

    Many standard tasks a GIS are refined. In the task of search and mark of objects in a given territory the selection of objects is performed by the area bounded by a closed loop. The contour is built in several ways: rectangle, polygon, and an arbitrary area (lasso). The choice of the method of constructing a closed loop is performed automatically and depends on the user's actions. For example, if consistently to press points on the map the area of search will be formed as a polygon. For marking the objects by a frame it is necessary to press the left mouse button and start moving along an imaginary diagonal. To select objects by arbitrary area (lasso), press the left mouse button and while holding it, start moving around the selected area. There is added the option for search of objects in polygons taking into account the internal contours of polygons.
    Possibility is implemented for automatic creation and addition to the open vector map of list of user maps in the sit or sitx format. To create maps you need only enter a list of maps names or to paste the list from the clipboard. The coordinate system parameters are automatically set from the open map. Into the titles text there is included a support for keywords #date, #.date and #time, which at displaying text are automatically replaced with the current date (DD/MM/YYYY or DD.MM.YYYY) and time (HH: MM: CC). There is improved the task of "Creation of elevation matrix by a vector map" in terms of the processing the objects of lines and areal hydrography. Processing of the linear hydrography allows modeling 3D-lines of thalwegs. Processing areal hydrography provides the recording the height of the water surface in accordance with the absolute height of the water's edge. The task of "Connecting geoportals" is improved. In the new version the list of geoportals layers is expanded. For the geoportal of Rosreestr there is added a new layer of the "Zone with special conditions of using territories". Support is added for projections: Stereographic, and Double Stereographic EPSG:9809. At import of the data from SHP format to the polygons which were obtained as a result of the conversion and have sub-objects outside the boundaries of the main object is automatically assigned the sign of multipolygon.

    Possibilities of the GIS are expanded for collective work in a network with using the software of GIS Server and managements of archives of spatial data using the program the Databank of Digital Maps and Remote Sensing Data.

    Data formats, libraries of conventional symbols, data exchange protocols are completely compatible with GIS "Panorama" of version 11 that allows you to perform software upgrades as required. Protection keys support execution of programs of version 12 and 11. The new version of the program is available for download in the Download section.

  • 09.09.2016 GIS Server SE is developed for open CentOS operating system

  • 12.07.2016 "Workstation of agronomist" automates processes of detecting unrecorded contours of agricultural land and land plots unused in production
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of agronomist" version 11.13.4 is developed. In the new version "Complex of agronomical tasks" provides the automated calculation of imposing the land plots onto contours of agricultural lands. Program performs overlay operation of multiple imposing the objects of two classes (lists) by a crossing method. Objects of source classes are defined by two lists: the list 1 - objects of imposing and the list 2 - the analyzed objects.

    Result of the mode's work are the calculated values of the areas of occurrence of contours of agricultural lands into the land plots or vice versa. The program determines multiple occurrences of analyzed objects and calculates the area of each occurrence in absolute units and in percentage of the imposing's object. Results are presented by three indicators: "total area", "% of occurrence" and "% of imposing". "Total area" - the value of the area of crossing the object of the list 1 with the object of the list 2. "% of occurrence" - the value that indicates in percentage what part of object of list 2 is included into object of the list 1. "% of imposing" - the value that indicates in percentage what part of object of the list 1 is imposed on object of the list 2.

    Results of calculations can be output into the report or be stored into semantics of objects of one of stacks. For convenience of the visual analysis of multiple imposing of one object the tools of viewing occurrences of objects are provided. After calculations the data are displayed in the form of two lists. For example, in one list there are displayed all contours of agricultural land, and in other the all land plots having the imposing onto a current contour of agricultural land. At moving along the list of farmlands the composition of land plots is changed.

    Analysis of conjoint location of contours of farmlands and the land plots can be executed both on a local map, and on the map of the enterprise placed on the GIS Server. For creating and updating a map of borders of land plots the procedure "Loading of data from the state cadastre of real estate" can be used. Map of contours of agricultural land can be obtained as a result of measurement of fields by means of GNSS receiver or a vectoring by the image of a space photo. Changing sequence of analyzed lists of objects it is possible to carry out detecting the contours of agricultural lands unrecorded in the state cadastre or the land plots not used in the production.

  • 16.06.2016 There are published the source codes of development tools for creation and connection of dynamic libraries of processing REST-queries to GIS WebService SE for Linux
    On the web-site of KB "Panorama" there are published the source codes of development tools for creation and connection of dynamic libraries of processing of REST-queries to the GIS WebService SE for Astra Linux SE operating system. Software Development Kit (SDK) allows developers to create new applied queries and to process them by means of functions in C++ language of MAPAPI interface from the GIS-kernel. It facilitates a writing of service modules for programmers having experience of operation with GIS Constructor products.

    Composition of SDK includes libraries in C++ language with examples of processing REST-queries. Formation of queries and displaying the results of their processing takes place in the client-side of web-based applications with using the library of components the GIS WebToolKit SE. Components of GIS WebToolKit SE are written on JavaScript for reduction of the development time of web-applications that use the geospatial data. At addition of new queries and libraries into GIS WebService SE it is expedient to add and new components into GIS WebToolKit SE for application of new queries and their embedding into a server code on PHP or other languages of development. Thus, the developer has full control over the implementation of web-applications.

    GIS WebService SE provides the high-speed transport protocol of data transmission from the client to server libraries and can be run on various platforms (Windows, MSVS 5, АstraLinux SE, Zarya, RedHat, Solaris, QNX and others), supports the various types of processors (Intel, ARM, Elbrus) and various types of web-servers (ngnix, Apache, IIS). GIS WebService SE is certified in the system of certification of information protection requirements for information security, is compatible with certified data protection and supports Kerberos and Active Directory domain authentication.

    GIS WebServiсe SE uses the basic international standards (OGC WFS, WFS-T, WMS, WMTS, WCS) with which help the transfer and display of spatial data is carried out. The application has the possibility of issuing tiles in the user or local coordinate system. Connection to the GIS WebService SE embedded library is carried out on the basis of five standard functions. All setup files of the program are stored in folders of shared access to the data. For enhancement of possibilities of processing arbitrary queries the mechanism of issuing files of large size is added. File size can be up to several terabytes and is limited only by your hard drive capacity.

    There is added a high-speed search of objects by semantic characteristics of the layers published in service. Queries are added: downloading of published files of large size from service, calculation of the optimal route by the graph of road, building a thermal map in the form of a matrix of qualities, construction of a map legend by the classifier, the scheme or the layer, loading a raster image in a format bmp, jpg, png on the server into a new layer. Issuance of results is standardized by the format of GML ISO 19109:2005, ISO 19115:2003. External GIS Servers SE, bases of geodata implemented by standard OGC 06-103r4, or other web-services can be a source of data for performance of applied queries. Connection to the specified sources is provided by MAPAPI-interface functions.

  • 15.01.2016 Presentation on programming multithread data processing in GIS Panorama 12 is published
    In KB "Panorama" by materials of technical training on programming there is prepared the presentation "Programming of multithreading data processing on an example of GIS Panorama 12". It examines the experience of multi-threaded processing of files of vector maps of format SXF in developed GIS Panorama 12 at formation of geo-coverings onto large territories. Use of multithreading processing on multikernel processors allows almost linearly (by number of processor kernels) to increase productivity of data processing on the basis of functions of MAPAPI interface adapted to the multi-threaded application. The presentation describes the features of designing the interface of multi-threaded tasks, processing of window messages, thread synchronization and other programming issues. You can view the presentation materials for programming the multi-threaded data processing in GIS Panorama 12 on the Presentations page.

  • 12.01.2016 Workstation of agronomist" provides information support of monitoring the use of agricultural land
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of agronomist" version 11.12.12 is developed. In the new version there are built-in the controls of using agricultural land, taking into account data of the state cadastre of real estate. The main source of data on registered plots is a single state register of real estate, which includes information on the borders, area, and rights to the recorded land parcels. For control of exclusion and involvement of agricultural land into agricultural production in the "Workstation of agronomist" there are integrated the tools of downloading information from the state real estate cadastre, connection of external data sources from official geoportals "Public cadastral map" and "Atlas of agricultural land". The new mode "Entry of objects" carries out overlay operation of multiple imposing of objects of two classes by the method of intersection. Objects of input classes are defined by two lists: list 1 - the ground areas being on the cadastral registration and the list 2 - borders of contours of agricultural objects. Result of the mode's work are the calculated values of the areas of entering of objects of the list 2 (agricultural land) into objects of the list 1 (ground areas). The program defines multiple entry of objects of the list 2 into the input objects of the list 1 and calculates the area of each occurrence in absolute units, and in percentage of object of imposing. By results of calculations the report is formed for the subsequent use at the internal accounting or for obtaining the statistical inquiry. In connection with privatization of the ground areas, occurrence of a large number of land owners and presence of agricultural producers of various forms of ownership the tasks of farm management stand very keenly. "Workstation of agronomist" allows producers to optimize the internal accounting of agricultural land, and to authorities to organise monitoring of using the agricultural land. Use of network-centric technologies for storage and processing of vector spatial data by means of GIS Server provides integration "Workstation of agronomist" into the common information space based on use of the Internet. The information posted on the server are published by protocols WMS, WMTS, WFS, WFS-T, that allows to use them in external information systems, and data of external systems are included into the composition of layers of digital map in "Workstation of agronomist". For example, for the vectorization of contours of farmland and identifying of unused land in agricultural production there are used the remote sensing data of the Earth from Roscosmos geoportal. The new version of the program is available on the website in Download section.

  • 06.01.2016 Map of Primorsky Krai on the geoportal "Bank of the spatial data" is updated
    Geoportal "Bank of spatial data" updated the map of Primorsky Krai, formed according to OpenStreetMap data. Source data obtained from the GIS-Lab website are complemented by objects from maps of scale 1: 1 000 000. There are added the objects of hydrography, vegetation, road network. For work with the received map it is possible to use the program of GIS Panorama Mini or other software products of KB "Panorama". Publishing of updates in bank of spatial data is made by using the program of Complex of conducting a 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".

  • 04.01.2016 Presentation on application of geoinformation technologies in urban-planning activity is published
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" prepared the presentation "Application of geoinformation technologies in urban-planning activity". It reflected an integrated approach to the use of server and client applications in the construction of information-analytical system for the management of urban development of areas. Technological aspects of "Territorial planning and designing" are considered and there are reflected the issues of performance of land-management works for statement on the cadastral registration of borders of settlements, territorial zones and zones with special conditions of use. For "Management of urban-planning activity" and conducting automated ISCAS the use of thematic databases in various fields of territorial administration is offered. GIS "Panorama" integrates any kinds of spatial data within a single digital map. In the process of mapping the results of engineering researches, land management and surveying, and also for conducting a urban-planning cadastre, territorial planning and management there are used the special classifiers containing the desired composition of objects and attributes. For reducing manual operations and automation of the technological processes related to land-property complex, the specialised program modules are intended: "Complex of geodesy calculations", "Workstation of urban-planner", MGIS "Land and real estate". For maintaining digital fund of cartographical bases and materials of engineering researches it is offered to use the Complex of conducting a databank of digital maps and remote sensing data ДЗЗ and software product the GIS Server for the organisation of collective access to layers of spatial data. Information on land resources and objects of real estate unite the specified technologies into a single information space. In presentation there is shown a construction on the basis of GIS WebService SE and the GIS Web ToolKit tools of developer of Web-application providing in a mode online the access of users to resources of information system.
