  • 08.02.2021 Governor of the Ryazan region has highly appreciated development of Regional geoinformation system
    On February, 3rd 2021, the Governor of the Ryazan region Nikolay Ljubimov has held meeting on the reached results and prospects of development of Regional geoinformation system of the Ryazan region (RGIS RR). This system is intended for gathering, storage and continuous update of the information about the state and dynamics of development of objects and territories of the Ryazan region.
    RGIS RR was built using the serial software of KB "Panorama". GIS "Panorama" provides employees of various departments a functionality for the preparation of digital maps, which are subsequently placed on the spatial data server under the control of the GIS Server SE. The spatial data service GIS WebService SE provides the publication of web-layers based on the information located on the spatial data server. Representatives of regional departments widely use the mechanism of virtual folders for automatic web-publishing of layers, which can be accessed on the regional geoportal under the control of GIS WebServer SE. For the convenience of users, the layers of industry data are grouped into industry projects, access to which is determined by the role and availability of rights.
    The Minister of Digital Development, Information Technologies and Communications Valery Stroykov noted that to date, 54 industry projects have been created in the RGIS RR, containing thematic layers by subject areas and types of activity. As an example, the publicly significant project "Open Industry Data" was given, which contains information about spatial data in the public domain.
    "The system is multifunctional and is used not only by the authorities. It is open to a wide range of users - for citizens, organizations, including potential investors and companies that participate in urban planning activities. The development of this system is one of the important tasks that we are implementing within the framework of digital transformation of the Ryazan region. It is very important that the widest possible circle of people know about it, everyone who can benefit from it, "Nikolai Lyubimov emphasized.
    During the discussion of the prospects for the development of GIS, it was noted that in 2020 the adaptation of the module "Accounting for agricultural lands" was carried out, which will allow this year to prepare information for solving problems requiring a comprehensive analysis of data on agricultural lands. For the functioning of the module "Accounting for agricultural land", in addition to the existing programs, specialized industry solutions have been installed. "Workstation of agronomist" is intended for creating and conducting the maps of agricultural lands. "Panorama AGRO" is used for configuring and maintaining an agrarian database and setting up industry information projects. Access to the agrarian database and web-layers of agricultural land maps is provided by the agro-portal managed by GIS WebSrerver AGRO.
    The Governor instructed the heads of all ministries and departments to pay attention to the issues of updating data in the RGIS RR, which will make it possible to provide the necessary information to people as openly, accurately and authentically as possible. Nikolay Lyubimov also noted that GIS is an important tool in working with investors, developing territories, it can be used in the field of construction, agriculture, transport, land management, emergency services and more.

  • 04.02.2021 In GIS "Panorama" a processing of vector maps and remote sensing data of large volumes has been considerably accelerated
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" version 13.6.2 has been developed. In the new version, the transformation of vector maps from one coordinate system to another has been accelerated by 4-6 times.The task is called from the menu "Tools\Coordinate systems\Standard transformation" or when adding maps in different coordinate systems. When adding a map with transformation, a copy of the original map is created in the map subdirectory with a name containing the name of the passport file and the current date.

    Import of graphic files of GeoTIFF, PNG, JPEG and other formats into RSW format is accelerated by 3-6 times due to the use of multi-threaded processing on a multi-core processor. A test case from 384 GeoTIFF files in volume of 45 GB has been processed in 57 minutes instead of 190 minutes in the previous version.

    The optimization of the list of rasters in RSW format is 2-4 times faster due to the use of multi-threaded processing on a multi-core processor: compression, decompression and updating of general images of rasters (pyramids of tiles). A test case of 384 rasters with a total size of 125 GB is compressed using the JPEG algorithm up to 2.37 GB in 25 minutes instead of 48 minutes in the previous version of the program.

    Import of matrixes of heights and quality characteristics from HGT (SRTM), GeoTIFF and IMG files has been accelerated 3-5 times due to the use of multi-threaded processing on a multi-core processor. The test set from 379 GeoTIFF files in volume of 44 GB was processed in 44 minutes instead of 156 minutes in the previous version of the program.

    The tasks "Raster passport" and "Matrix passport" have been improved. The bookmark "Metadata" has been added, on which the code EPSG, a filename of metadata and the size of image or matrix in kilobytes have been specified. For editable raster or matrix files, saving metadata into an XML file is available. The metadata of images and matrices can contain the characteristics of the dataset (accuracy, coordinates of dimensions, conditional name, classification, etc.), as well as information about the organization and employees who create the sets.

    In the "Floor Plan Editor" the mode "Adding text" has been added. The mode is intended for drawing titles, explanatory captions and other texts onto the map. In the process of entering and editing text, the main standard tools of a regular text editor are available: moving the cursor (arrow keys), keys "Delete", "BackSpace", "Home", "End". In the process of entering and editing text, you can insert text fragments from the clipboard, change the orientation of the text relative to the anchor point (left, center, right), the position of the text on the map, the text font.

    There is improved a display of vector signs that look like a frame with text inside and other elements. In the "Editor of a vector sign" the "[T]" button has been added - Select a text chain to specify the size of the sign. In order for the sign to change its width when changing the text of a chain, it is necessary to specify in the list of chains the text element by which the width of the sign will be controlled and press the "[T]" button. [T] will be displayed to the left of the selected string. You need to choose the chain, the text of which is most likely to be longer than the rest. The chain coordinates should be closer to the edges of the frame so that when the sign is stretched proportionally, empty areas are not formed at the edges of the signature. Stretchable signs can be used in aeronautical maps (zones labels), topographic maps (a road number in a frame), operational maps (signature inside a flag) and others.

    The task of connecting geoportals has been improved. Ability has been added to simultaneously connect several layers according to the international standard OGC WMS or OGC WMTS through the "Open map from WMS server" dialog. In this case, each layer will be added as a separate connection into the general list.

    The dialog "Opening data from GIS Server" has been improved. For users who have the right to view the state of the GIS Server operation, in the "Monitoring" bookmark, the ability has been added to save the log (protocol) of the server operation to a text file for further analysis or sending to the technical support service.

    The task "Control of absolute heights" has been improved. Control of heights in areas of areal rocks has been added. When searching for unacceptable elevation differences along the selected profile, it is determined that the drop point hits the inside of the areal rock, where such differences are possible. If it hits, the message is logged; if the "Issue warnings" mode is set, this mode is disabled by default. The refinement reduces the number of messages, which makes it easier to analyze the control result. The number of sections for horizontal and vertical profiling of objects with absolute height has been increased. For linear and areal objects, instead of one profile, three are built - in the center and at the edges of the dimension, which helps to reduce misses when searching for unacceptable height differences.

    The "View error" mode of the "Map Editor" task has been improved. Possibility of saving records about the detected errors into a text file of CSV format has been added. CSV format is supported by spreadsheets and database management systems. The log can contain messages from any tasks that generate warnings: messages about errors in semantics, double points in the metric, the presence of loops, errors of subobject occurrence, mismatch of the contours of objects, intersection of the contours of objects, messages about mismatch of heights, missing contours, errors in elevation marks, mismatch of semantics of adjacent objects of adjacent sheets and others. For the each record of the file of the map control's protocol, the text of the message and information for identifying the object for which this message was generated (unique object number, sheet number, sheet name, point coordinates) can be placed into the CSV file.

    The classifier of aeronautical maps dfc.rsc has been updated. There are clarified the conventional symbols of objects, the width of which depends on the length of the signature in the symbol: 5100300 Signature of landing course, 4000600 Signature of control area (CTA) without transition altitude, 4000800 Signature of Flight Information Sector (FIS), 4000200 Signature of Flight Information Region (FIR), 4000200 Signature of the control area (CTA), 4000200 Signature of the Aerodrome Flight Information Zone (AFIZ), 4000200 Signature of the restricted zone of P-zone, 4000200 Signature of the danger zone of the D-zone, 4000200 Signature of the R-zone flight restriction zone, 4000200 Signature of TSA Temporary Reserved Airspace, 2001200 Signature of terminal turning point, 2001200 Signature of waypoint RNAV, 2000510 Signature of ILS. When you change the text of the signature selected in the sign, the width of the sign will be automatically changed so that the text remains within the frame.

  • 02.02.2021 In the Databank of digital maps and remote sensing data, an algorithm for automatic cleaning of temporary files has been developed and the check of metadata integrity has been improved
    In KB "Panorama" the Databank of digital maps and remote sensing data version 5.2.2 has been developed. The new version simplifies system administration, due to use of algorithm of automatic cleaning of temporary files, including the downloaded data archives. Placing spatial data into file storage is performed with integrity check and checksum determination. The results of the work are recorded into the diagnostic log, with the output of statistics on the server resources - the available number of cores, the amount of RAM, the percentage of memory load. The reliability of the service with data located on the GIS Server is increased when maintaining a distributed structure of file storage.

    The databank of digital maps and remote sensing data is the basis for building infrastructure of spatial data at the federal, regional and municipal levels, in corporate information systems. 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 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.
    The portal "Bank of spatial data" presents the possibilities of organizing storage, accounting and issuance of cartographic materials in vector, raster and matrix form. The portal contains vector maps in SXF format, generated on the basis of data from open sources (OpenStreetMap, VMap0). The spatial data includes maps of: subjects of the Russian Federation, countries and cities of the near and far abroad. In total, over 200 vector maps and 6000 matrix data with a total volume of 50 GB. Specialists of KB "Panorama" weekly update and refresh the content of the information on the portal.

  • 28.01.2021 In GIS ToolKit the possibilities of interactive map editing have been expanded
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS ToolKit of version 13.2.1 has been developed for creating GIS-applications in the environment of C ++ Builder, Delphi Embarcadero. The new version expands the possibilities of the TMapEditMetric component, which allows the programmer to implement interactive creation and editing of metrics (coordinates) of map objects in his application. In addition to the available modes for creating objects and subobjects, moving of objects, adding, deleting and editing metric points and selecting an arbitrary point on the contour of an object, a mode for selecting metric points of an existing object to "capture" points of other map objects or nodes of a rectangular map grid has been added into the component. If the corresponding option is activated, when the mouse cursor moves over the map, objects are searched for in the immediate vicinity of the cursor and the current edited point is "pulled" to the nearest metric point of the found object. It is possible to "capture" both the "real" points of the nearest object - in this case, only the points recorded in the metric of the object are taken, and "virtual" points - in this case, the coordinate of the point closest to the cursor on the contour of the object is taken, which is not necessarily included in the metric of this object.

    Into the TMapEditMetric component the method has been added allowing from the outside to set coordinates of a current edited point. This allows the programmer to implement additional control over process of interactive editing, complementing it, for example, with possibilities of positioning by pressing keys on the keyboard.

    In the updated component of interactive editing, a whole set of events has been added that allow you to perform its processing when you select an object point, edit it or delete it. In this case, in the event handler, it is possible to correct the coordinates of the point being edited or to cancel the corresponding operation altogether. This makes it possible to implement additional logic in the application - for example, control and prohibition of object points falling into certain zones.
    The TMapView and TMapScreen map display components have the ability to display a rectangular grid and control its parameters.

    The GIS ToolKit consists of a set of visual components (supplied in source code) and API functions of the GIS core 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 a local network or the Internet (components of access to the GIS Server or data exchange using international protocols are used).

  • 27.01.2021 Specialists of KB "Panorama" will make a presentation and hold a master class at the international conference "Geodesy, Mine Survey and Aerial Survey"
    From 11 to 12 February 2021 Moscow will host the 12th International Scientifically-Practical Conference "Geodesy, Mine Survey and Aerial Survey". As part of this event, specialists from KB "Panorama" will make a presentation and hold a master class "Integrated use of data of geodesy, mine survey and aerial survey". The event participants will be shown the capabilities of the professional GIS "Panorama" and industry solutions for processing and analyzing spatial data coming from various sources. The presentation and master class will reflect software technologies that implement a unified methodology for the integrated use of vector, matrix and raster data for solving applied problems.

    To process the results of field geodetic measurements, the means of importing data from digital devices, calculation and adjustment of measurements from the "Geodesy calculations" task are used. The calculation results are put on the map, where additional operations can be performed to calculate the coordinates of points and create on their basis linear and areal objects using the "Geodesy editor". For calculating coordinates of points on the basis of linear measurements along a route (for example, a road axis) the tools of support of linear coordinate system are used.

    Results of the laboratory analysis of soils are used for conducting a base of subsoil survey points presented in coordinates of wellhead. For control of boring operations, estimation of spatial position of a wellbore and a relative positioning of two and more wellbores, the set of modes "Well calculations" is intended. Soil survey points and a matrix of heights of a relief are used for creation of a matrix of layers characterising geological layers. Matrixes of qualities are used for building surfaces of qualitative characteristics or estimated indicators of terrain conditions, including for the analysis of hydrological conditions.

    Photographs obtained as a result of aerial survey using unmanned aerial vehicles are processed by photogrammetric tools for creating matrixes of heights and orthophotomaps. The processing results are sent to the GIS "Panorama" for manual and semi-automatic vectorization of terrain objects.

    We invite everyone to take part in the conference events.

  • 21.01.2021 "Workstation of geologist" provides processing and analysis of inclinometry measurements
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of geologist" version 13.6.1 has been developed. "Workstation of geologist" includes the necessary components for processing and analysis of the terrain, geological structure, soil properties, hydrogeological conditions and geological processes. In the new version of the program the "Complex of geological tasks" has been updated. The following modes have been implemented: "Build the well axis by coordinates", "Build the well axis by inclinometry", "Build of intersection layers", "Horizontal and vertical projection of the well axis". New modes are grouped into a separate panel "Well calculations", they are intended for processing and analysis of three-dimensional data on the axis of the well, including processing of inclinometry measurements. The mode "Horizontal and vertical projection of the well axis" provides creation of inclinogram - scheme of a projection of well onto horizontal and vertical planes. This mode allows you to analyze the spatial location of several adjacent wells.

    The "Complex of hydrological tasks" included into the "Workstation of a geologist" is intended for an estimation of water filling of a given a given at changing the level of rising of water, and also obtaining the graphic documents with results of modelling. Geological and hydrological tasks use matrix data to analyze relief and terrain conditions. The matrix of heights is intended for relief modelling. The matrix of layers provides modelling of geological layers. The matrix of qualities is used to model and analyze various characteristics: the level of groundwater occurrence, the type of soil cover, the depth of the reservoir, the coefficient of mechanically mined soil, the level of flood waters, and much more. In the new version of the program the mode "Matrix calculator" has been added, intended for execution of operations of maps algebra. Algebra of maps - operations during performing of which, on the basis of one or several source matrixes, the new matrix is created, and values of cells of this matrix depend on values of cells of the source matrixes having identical coordinates. The use of this mode expands the possibilities for analyzing the results of engineering-geological and engineering-hydrological surveys of the area and assessing the hydrogeological conditions taken into account in the designing, construction and operation of real estate objects.

  • 19.01.2021 In the Complex of automated checking the quality and correction of maps, the new methods of checking the filling of objects attributes have been added
    In KB "Panorama" the Complex of the automated checking the quality and correction of maps version 7.1 has been developed. In the new version the procedures of checking the quality of a digital map have been improved. Control of double points of the objects metrics was updated. When performing control in edit mode, double points are filtered taking into account topological links with neighboring objects on the map sheet. Neighboring objects with common points are filtered at the same time. Endpoints are not filtered. Control of repetition of values of unique semantics on sheet has been added.

    A new mode "Control of values by symbol table" has been added into the control of objects semantics. This control allows you to find Latin characters in the values of the selected symbolic semantics and replace Latin characters with Cyrillic characters. This mode is relevant for characters that have the same image in Latin and Cyrillic, for example: K, A, M, E, P, T, O, H and others. Correction of the text semantics is necessary for the correct operation of tasks of search by the value of symbolic semantics, for example: by the name of the city, street, surname.

    There is added a control over the direction of digitizing multipolygons. Control of report of adjacent sheets has been improved. The check for the digitizing direction of linear objects going on the sheet frame has been implemented. Objects with the direction of digitization "Predefined" (linear rivers), "Lower right" (horizontals) are checked.
    The complex of automated checking the quality and correction of digital maps is designed to obtain a single digital map from the original digital maps in the SXF format, created according to different classifiers. The complex consists of a program of checking and correcting the DTM in SXF format, a utility for control of coordination of adjacent DTM sheets, a subroutine for combining adjacent DTM sheets and a procedure for analyzing the correspondence of the object content of maps and classifiers.

The map has been formed according to OpenStreetMap data, source data were obtained from Geofabrik website. To work with the map, you can 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".

  • 10.01.2021 In professional vectorizer "Panorama-Editor" the tools of creation and checking the quality of digital topographical and special maps have been expanded
    In KB "Panorama" the professional vectoriozer "Panorama-Editor" version 13.6.1 has been developed. In the new version, in the "Map Editor" task, the composition of the "Graphic Objects" panel has been expanded: modes have been added for controlling the color, scale, transparency of the conventional symbol of the object selected on the map. In the mode of editing common vertexes the function of capture of nodes of other objects ('K') has been added. In the mode of union of selected line objects, the option Create polyline has been added to combine the selected line objects into one object. In the task "Lists of objects", the "Matching contours" mode has been added into the crossings search. The mode carries out search of objects at which the external and internal contours are matched. The direction of digitization, the position of the starting points and the sequence of the contours of the found objects may not coincide. The tools for viewing and editing tables of attributes of spatial databases, searching for data and viewing tables with a large number of records have been expanded. "Panorama Editor" provides direct display and editing of arbitrary spatial databases in cartographic conventional symbols, including those created by other GIS, without additional third-party modules based on direct interaction with PostgreSQL and Oracle DBMS through SQL queries.

    The block of geodesy and cadastral tasks has been improved. In a mode "the Information from the state cadastre of real estate" a support API of functions of Rosreestra on access to the data has been implemented. The mode provides sending requests for information about the cadastral objects available at the specified point. The obtained information in the form of a list of cadastral numbers is displayed on the corresponding pages of the dialog. When choosing a specific cadastral number of an object, a request and display of public cadastral information about a quarter, land plot or real estate object are performed.

    To improve the quality of created digital topographic and special maps and reduce the complexity of their verification, the automated data control tools have been updated. In the task "Control of absolute heights", the possibility of using the filter of objects for changing the composition of processed map objects has been implemented. Using the filter, you can specify: map layers and types of objects (localization), objects samples, list of nomenclature sheets, semantic and spatial characteristics of objects. Preliminary assessment of control results has been added. When a large number of errors "Discrepancy of elevation and code" (comparable to the total number of contour lines in the region) are issued, a message is displayed about the possible incorrectness of the vertical interval of relief in the map passport. The task "Coordination of adjacent sheets" has been improved, which perform a checking the coordination of objects of adjacent sheets of a vector map with the issuance of an error log. There is added a check for the digitizing direction of linear objects going on the sheet frame. Objects with the direction of digitization "Predefined" (linear rivers), "Lower right" (horizontals) are checked. The program of checking a vector map has been improved. Into the report on execution of the quality control of the DTM, the output of information on the control's types "Control of values by symbol table" and "Unique value control" has been added. The control of values by the symbol table allows you to find Latin characters in the values of the selected symbolic semantics and to replace Latin characters with Cyrillic characters. Control of unique values is used to check the repetition of semantics' values for which the "Unique value in the sheet" property is set in the map classifier. A new mode "Control of values by symbol table" has been added into the control of objects semantics. This control allows you to find Latin characters in the values of the selected symbolic semantics and replace Latin characters with Cyrillic characters. This mode is relevant for characters that have the same image in Latin and Cyrillic, for example: K, A, M, E, P, T, O, H and others. Correction of the text semantics is necessary for the correct operation of tasks of search by the value of symbolic semantics, for example: by the name of the city, street, surname.

    In the "Map print" dialog the ability has been added to limit the display area of the map by the specified boundary (for example, the administrative boundary of the territory). In this case, you can set the degree of transparency of the map display outside the borders of the main contour of the object from 0 (source image) to 100% (completely filled).

    When forming world maps from a set of maps sheets in SXF format, the ability has been added to transfer sheets by longitude on +/-360 degrees. It allows to duplicate the columns of sheets in the western and\or eastern hemisphere for expansion of dimensions of work region up to -360/+360 degrees. The recalculation of coordinates and sheet passport will be performed automatically when importing the work region using the DIR file.
    In the task "Classifier Editor" a customization has been added for automatic recoding the semantics of the type "Classifier code (list)" when updating the classifier. This makes it possible to automate the process of replacing the list (a list of values and their codes) and rebuilding a series of objects created on the basis of the replaced semantics. When the user replaces the old classifier in the folder with the map and opens the map, objects will be automatically recoded with the formation of new semantics that have values from the new values classifiers. Objects will be displayed with new conventional symbols. When replacing it with the old classifier, the conventional symbols will return to their previous view.

    The survey.v5.rsc classifier has been updated, designed for creating land survey, technical plans, inspection reports, documents containing information about land management objects, public and other cadastral maps, drawings, as well as for reproduction of information contained in cadastral plans of territories and cadastral extracts of real estate objects. In the classifier there is expanded the list of objects to which the "Floor type" semantics (code 1119) has been added, necessary for preparing technical plans on creation, formation of objects of real estate, parts of real estate objects, as well as technical plans for changing information about real estate objects and their parts.

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

  • 08.01.2021 In GIS WebServer AGRO the tools of editing a map of agricultural land and conducting an agrarian database have been expanded
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebServer AGRO version 3.0.1 has been developed. In the program the new version of the map editor has been implemented. The new editor provides a wide range of functions and tools for editing the metrics and semantics of objects on the map of agricultural land and objects of an infrastructure. In this case, the data can be represented both as a file of a digital map and as a table in the spatial database.
    The editor user interface is displayed in a separate window for a better overview of the map. It allows you to create new, modify existing map objects, perform actions on a group of objects. Operations are performed in a web browser and the result is uploaded to the server. Use the "View" panel to assign or change an object type. The object type can be set without interrupting the current editing operation. To do this, just select the appropriate icon in the "View" panel. Images of objects views are displayed as a legend (tree) or as a layout of objects (table).
    For fast creation of objects the editor uses templates of objects. Templates of objects - the graphic list of often used types of map objects. When a template is selected, the editor automatically switches to the mode of creating an object of the specified type. The editor informs the user about the actions being performed: changing the type of an object, deleting, changing attributes and other operations on objects. The information is recorded into the map event log, which can be viewed.
    The editor implements support for graphic objects, without selecting a conventional symbol from the map classifier file. Ability has been added to create an arbitrary visual representation of geographic objects. Users can define the parameters of the appearance of lines and areas: color, transparency, thickness, line type, select hatching, fonts and their design for text. The customized visual representation of the object is saved as a style and can be used repeatedly.
    In the new version of GIS WebServer AGRO, the user and administrator interface of the application has been updated. The new tools have been added, allowing to minimise and change the interface of the main map window. There is implemented the ability to display map controls in the side panel, which is located to the left or to right of the map and provides a convenient interface for managing the toolbox.
    The structure and interface of the administration module has been changed. In the module the possibility of conducting projects was added. Projects in GIS WebServer AGRO are created automatically and linked directly to agricultural enterprises described in the agrarian database, customized by means of "Panorama AGRO".
    GIS WebServer AGRO uses the GIS WebService SE cartographical service as a source of spatial data. Synchronization of cartographic information described in the "Panorama AGRO" database and information published on GIS WebService SE is carried out automatically. In the new version of GIS WebServer AGRO, the visualization of the map has been updated, drawing was accelerated and the layout of wms layers has been improved.
    For collective work with data, digital maps of farmland and enterprise infrastructure are placed on the GIS Server. Its use allows you to synchronize the work of the desktop "Panorama AGRO", web applications and mobile clients. Desktop applications such as GIS "Panorama", "Workstation of agronomist" and others can be connected to the server. It allows the mobile clients working through web to process the same data together with desktop clients.
    You can get acquainted with an example of work of GIS WebServer AGRO on the page of the demo project "Agroportal". The new version of the program is available on the website in the Download section.

  • 06.01.2021 GIS "Operator" simplifies preparation of command-staff documents and work with volumetric terrain models
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Operator" version 13.6.0 has been developed. In the new version the tools of preparing and printing the command-staff documents have been improved. In the task "Map Editor", the composition of the "Graphic Objects" panel has been expanded: modes have been added for controlling the color, scale, transparency of a conventional symbol of the object selected on the map. In the application task "Report editor" the possibility has been implemented for automated formation of a set of map reports in jpg format of specified permissions in accordance with a prepared list. It simplifies embedding of reports into various documents and their updating. In "Map print" dialog the ability has been added to limit the display area of the map by a specified boundary (for example, the administrative boundary of the territory). In this case, you can set the degree of transparency of the map display outside the borders of the main contour of the object from 0 (source image) to 100% (completely filled). This mode is called through the context menu in the "Map print" dialog by pressing the "Select area by object" button. When saving and opening packed projects of maps in MPT\MPTZ format, the currently specified displaying composition for each project map is taken into account. This allows you to form projects of different composition of layers, scale, color design from one set of maps for use in the form of insets in various reports.
    When forming world maps from a set of maps sheets of SXF format, the ability has been added to transfer sheets in longitude by +/- 360 degrees. This allows to duplicate the columns of sheets in the western and/or eastern hemisphere to expand the size of the work region up to -360/+ 360degrees. The recalculation of coordinates and sheet passport will be performed automatically when importing the work region using the DIR file.
    The display of elevations matrixes has been improved: the color of the coverage point is calculated based on 16 adjacent heights using the bicubic interpolation method. The new method makes it possible to smooth the discreteness of the display of the matrix elements and the light-shadow mask (hillshade) of the relief, as well as to crop the matrix image by the frame with pixel accuracy.

    In the new version, the tools for viewing and editing tables of attributes of spatial databases have been expanded. Modes are added: select/cancel linked objects, show records for selected objects, show information about a map object for the current record. In dialog the tools for convenient viewing the table with a large amount of data are added: customization of the order of displaying columns, change of their width, setting the visibility status of columns. GIS "Operator" provides direct display and editing of arbitrary spatial databases in cartographic conventional symbols, including those created by other GIS, without additional third-party modules based on direct interaction with PostgreSQL and Oracle DBMS through SQL queries.

    In the task "Navigator 3D" new types of displaying surfaces, reliefs, objects have been added. The surface can be in the type of: a map with a customizable display composition, a smoothed matrix, a background, or be absent. The relief can be full, nodular, skeleton or transparent. Objects can have a three-dimensional view according to the classifier and displayed as full or skeleton models, or have no assigned three-dimensional model and are displayed as a default view, built by the object's metric. Composition of the display of 3D-objects can also be customized for all maps through the "Composition of the display" on the main toolbar of the "Navigator 3D" task. A variety of settings for displaying all elements of a three-dimensional terrain model allows the user to customize it for execution of specific tasks. For example, a transparent relief allows you to view underground objects: buildings elements, communications and others. Nodular and skeleton view of a relief make it possible to see the details of its construction. Skeleton type of objects helps to estimate their relative positioning. The interface of the dialog for importing 3D models into the database of three-dimensional tiles DB3D has been updated.

    The emercom.v2.rsc classifier has been updated, designed to create digital maps of emergency situations. For accounting objects under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Emergencies, and highlighting these objects with special conventional symbols, the following objects have been added: "Label of an object under the jurisdiction of EMERCOM", "Label of an object under the jurisdiction of the EMERCOM (simplified)", "Building under the jurisdiction of the EMERCOM".

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

  • 05.01.2021 In the GIS Constructor the tools of processing modern exchange formats of spatial data have been improved
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS Constructor for Qt Designer SE version 13.3.0 has been developed for operating systems CentOS, Ubuntu, Astra Linux SE. In the new version, the functionality of the component of displaying three-dimensional model has been improved. When importing models into the DB3D format, spatial data TLS, OC3, DAE, OBJ can be imported as a set, assembled from various catalogs, with the ability to interactively select the composition of files. Possibility has been added for selecting a coordinate system of a binding the imported model: from the list, from a file of the metadata and EPSG database. For the COLLADA (DAE) format, a loading of the data can be executed in one of several provided modes depending on a way of the geometry analysis. For each level of the model, the user can select an individual texture value. In the component for importing graphic files when processing BMP, PNG, JPEG, TIFF, GeoTIFF, IMG formats, the user is provided with extended information about the source file: data type, minimum and maximum channel data values, interpretation method, projection parameters and coordinate systems. To optimize the import of large graphic files, it is possible to create an output file without copying data, in this case, raster data will be read directly from the original graphic file. To improve import performance, the user can disable transaction logging. In the dialog of importing matrixes from the SRTM, GeoTIFF, IMG formats, the ability to eliminate undefined heights by mode of linear interpolation of neighboring known values has been added.
    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.
    GIS Constructor is a set of geoinformation components for use in the visual programming environment of Qt Designer, which allows you to develop your own GIS applications. The visualization of the contents of digital maps is made in conventional symbols adopted for topographic, geographical and various special maps. Geoinformation system has ample opportunities for performing calculations, for providing display of spatial data on various graphic devices in standard and user systems of conventional symbols. The main functions can be executed in multithreaded mode. It supports automatic optimization of used memory for processing large amounts of data (tens of gigabytes) on limited resources (hundreds of megabytes).
    The toolkit is adapted for work on a wide range of operating systems (Astra Linux SE, ALT Linux, Elbrus, Ubuntu, CentOS, QNX) and architectures (Intel, Elbrus, PowerPC, SPARC, ARM). The toolkit includes components of visual designing the GIS applications and library of a multiplatform multithreaded GIS core. GIS Constructor provides a cross-platform MAPAPI interface that allows a programmer to implement development in an operating system convenient for it.

    KB "Panorama" has developed the GIS ToolKit version 13.1.1 for creating GIS applications in the environment of C++ Builder, Delphi Embarcadero. In the new version the possibility has been added for request and display of the data about map objects from geoportals (geoservices) according to the OGC international protocol. The request is executed for a given point of the image. If several layers from different geoportals are open, then the request is made to the current layer specified in the dialog. Information about objects is requested by the geodetic coordinates of a point, transmitted and displayed in the form of an html page.

    In this version a new installer of the GIS ToolKit is presented, in which an automatic customization of paths to GIS core libraries, source codes, setting of Windows environment variables have been added. The new installer, through the use of automatic settings, greatly simplifies the process of installing the GIS ToolKit into the palette of development environment components.

    The GIS ToolKit consists of a set of visual components (supplied in source code) and API functions of the GIS core 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).

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