  • 10.04.2018 Classifier and the library of conventional symbols for a digital large-scale navigation plan were developed
    In KB "Panorama" the classifier and library of conventional symbols of the digital large-scale navigation plan were developed. Digital large-scale navigation plan (LSNP) is a digital thematic map containing information about spatial objects sufficient for solving the problem of automated location of a vehicle on the road and calculation of the route of its movement, taking into account the lane traffic, a marking and information of road signs.

    Classifier LSNP is made taking into account the requirements: "GOST Р  51256-99. Technical facilities for organizing road traffic. Road marking. Types and basic parameters. General technical requirements"; "GOST Р  52282-2004. Technical facilities for organizing road traffic. Road traffic lights. Types and basic parameters. General technical requirements. Test methods"; "GOST Р  52290-2004. Technical facilities for organizing road traffic. Road signs. General technical requirements".

    LSNP is created on the basis of high-precision satellite geodetic measurements corresponding to the accuracy of digital topographic plans of scale 1: 500. Unlike digital navigation maps and digital city plans, where the road is represented by a linear object, on LSNP the road is represented by a set of polygonal, linear and point objects, characterizing all its arrangement. The use of the road2000.rsc digital classifier ensures the automatic loading of data from mobile laboratories intended for collecting data on the state of highways and adjacent objects. Loading is provided by tools of the GIS "Panorama".

    The downloaded information is published as a web-service - digital road model (DRM). The service provides information to external information systems under the unified protocols OGC WMS and WFS. Structure of the DRM web-service includes: digital cartographic substrate, road objects, roadside infrastructure and services, high-precision navigation information presented by the road graph, conditions and traffic modes. GIS WebService SE is used to publish the DRM on the Internet.

  • 27.03.2018 Training video material on forming the Map Atlas in the GIS "Panorama" is prepared
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" prepared the video lesson of forming the Map atlas in the GIS "Panorama". The information basis of any geographic information system is the spatial data, which are classified by content, scale, purpose and territoriality. When working with cartographic data onto large areas, it becomes necessary to display information in an overview and with detailed textures. Combining all spatial data in one map leads to an increase in the time for searching for objects, performing the computational and analytical tasks. In order to speed up the processing of information, it is recommended to structure the data using the Map Atlas task.

    The map atlas is a systematic collection of spatial data and is designed to simplify the transition between overlapping data of different scale. The training film shows the technology of forming the Atlas of maps using the example of the Russian Federation's base map of scale 1: 1 000 000 and maps of subjects of the Russian Federation of scale 1: 25 000.

    The digital thematic (geographical) map of Russia on the scale of 1: 1 000 000 provides an overview of the country territory, but its composition does not provide detailed data on the subjects of the Russian Federation. Free maps based on OpenStreetMap data of scale 1: 25 000 contain detailed information on the objects of the terrain.

    When combining spatial data in the Map Atlas, the operator sets the visibility ranges (displaying) for each set and determines their numerical composition, which allows to exclude unused data. The transition is performed using the geodetic coordinates of the cursor or the center of the active window. The map atlas is presented 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).

    You can see the training videos at the Video lessons page.

  • 24.03.2018 Data bank of digital maps and remote sensing data provides data exchange between the various organisations

    The bank's storehouse can include hundreds of terabytes of spatial information and contain vector maps, remote sensing data, elevation matrixes, terrain models and other types of data. The new version adds a mode of data integrity control. This mode, in addition to restoring the map-scheme, makes comparison of data sets being in storehouse with their backups. This makes it possible to restore files if there are differences in them.

    The mode of specifying the values of metadata is added at loading of data sets into storehouse. For example, you can set the same date of survey, security classification, or the comment for all uploaded data.

    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").
    The databank of digital maps and remote sensing data provides construction of cloud storehouse 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 storehouse, 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.
