  • 27.09.2023 In "Workstation of cadastral engineer" the tools of formation of cadastral documents have been expanded
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of cadastral engineer" version 15.0.1 has been developed. In the new version the modes in the "Cadastral documents" task have been improved.
    In dialog "Formation of a map-plan of the territory" when forming XML, a structured recording a file with splitting into separate lines has been implemented. This improves the readability of the XML document. A function has been added to automatically calculate the value of the determination error when filling out information about the area of a cadastral object. In the process of forming a text report, the selection of source data is automated when filling the name of the coordinate system. If an object does not have the necessary information, the program uses data from the options of the "Cadastral Documents" task. The rounding the value of the area to the whole meters has been added. When filling out the "Allowed use" attribute, a variable search for source data from different semantic characteristics has been implemented. Filling the section "Information about buildings, structures, objects of unfinished construction necessary to correct registry errors in the information about the description of their location" has been improved.
    The "Editing attributes of a cadastral object" dialog has been updated in terms of entering and editing location information. Duplicated elements on the "Basic information" tab are removed and new elements on the "Location" tab are added. New elements are designed for entering and editing geonyms of address objects in two versions: directory and text. Values from the directory are used to form the land survey plan version 6, and text values are used to form the technical plan and land survey plan version 9. The composition of semantics in classifiers the survey versions 5 and 6 have been updated.
    In the "Land survey plan" mode, when processing characteristic points of boundaries, the filling of a number of information has been corrected. The number and prefix of the point are taken from the semantics NAME_9 - Name, the traversal order corresponds to the number of metric point of the cadastral object. When filling out an XML document according to schema version 6, the formation of the SpecifyParcelApproximal element has been implemented for cadastral works to clarify plots with clarification of the boundaries and area of the adjacent land plot. If during the cadastral works, simultaneous clarifying a land plot and its adjacent plot has been made, in the program there is implemented a possibility of restart of forming an XML-file with changing the type of clarification: "Clarify the boundaries of the plot" or "Clarify the boundaries of adjacent plots". The order of searching for points of the same name has been corrected to fill in information about new and old coordinates. A faster point search algorithm has been implemented and errors in selecting points of adjacent cadastral objects have been eliminated. In the dialogs "Land Survey plan", "The project of land surveying" and "Map (plan) of land", an indication of the process of initial initialization of the dialogs with data is implemented. With a significant number of land plots, their contours and parts, a collecting of initial data can take several minutes. The indication function displays the name of the current process and the percentage of completion.
    In the "Save image for the graphic part of the report" mode, when saving an image in the EMF format, the presence of a raster in the display is analyzed and the EMF file is saved in vector format if there is no raster. This ensures that EMF files are created in small sizes if the user makes a mistake with the display type.
    The "Reading the cadastral plan of the territory and updating the map" dialog has been updated. When changing the value in the "Data processing mode" element, the composition of the data fields also changes. For the "Update an existing map" option, you can select the "Data processing mode" switch - skip/add/replace. For the "create a new XML map" option, you can select the classifier version. Data entry tools for documents and semantics groups have been updated.
    The new version of the program is available on the website in the Download section.

  • 26.09.2023 Bank of spatial data has been supplemented with a map of the Republic of Niger
    Geoportal "Bank of spatial data" has been supplemented with a map of the Republic of Niger, formed according to OpenStreetMap data. 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). 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".

  • 25.09.2023 Training video material on restoring the aeronautical database has been prepared
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a video lesson of restoring a database of aeronautical information of PostgreSQL format from a backup copy included into the installation package of the Complex of preparing documents of aeronautical information. The complex of preparing documents of aeronautical information is installed in addition to the GIS "Panorama" or GIS "Operator". In training material a process of restoration of a database with use of the pgAdmin4 graphic interface has been demonstrated. An empty database is created and filled with test information from the backup file \\Setup.Ani\AICM8_V11.backup.
    The complex of preparing documents of aeronautical information is a set of tools for maintaining an aeronautical data base, a modeling and analyzing the aeronautical situation, generating aeronautical maps and exchanging data with other information systems through export and import in the ARINC 424-19 exchange format and export in the AIXM 5.1 format. The task "Flight procedures design" is used to design the routes of departure, approach and landing and to analyze the safety of flights on them. The task "Assessment of compliance for aerodromes with the requirements FAR" is intended for the analysis of the aerodrome and the aerodrome environs for the suitability for operation and aircraft flights in accordance with the Federal Aviation Regulations.
    You can view the training materials in the "Video lessons" section.

  • 22.09.2023 "Workstation of urban planner" forms urban planning documents using report forms customized by users
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of urban planner" version 15.0.1 has been developed. In the new version for urban planning documents which do not have form established by authorised body, report creation by a template developed by the user is provided. In order to automate the document creation process, the use of a universal template is provided, which contains a descriptive part and named markers. Markers are placed in the document template in place for insertion of data on the processed object. Formation of the user report is made by means of special dialogue which can be called from the "Print" menu in the "Land plots" and "Accounting objects" registers.
    This mode can be used to draw up documents such as "Resolution on establishing an address", "Order on granting permission for a conditionally permitted type of use of a land plot", "Order on granting permission to deviate from the maximum parameters of permitted construction, reconstruction of objects of capital construction" and other reports, the appearance of which is not established by state regulations. The mode dialog includes universal attributes of the document, its text part and information necessary for registering the document in ISOGD. Some information is filled in automatically based on the type of document being formed . The other part is filled by the user in the dialog fields. After formation, the document is displayed in the office suite, where the user can enter the missing information.
    In the new version of the program, the list of reports, including "Urban planning plan of a land plot", "Construction permit", "Permit to put an object into operation" according to the developed forms of the Ministry of Construction and Housing and Communal Services of the Russian Federation, is supplemented by the creation of a document using user template. For the formed document an automatic creation of register record of the document and its registration in ISOGD has been added using a file generated in the modes of creating urban planning reports. Procedure of document formation is customizable. The user can change a template according to various regional, municipal and departmental requirements for a specific type of the document. For use of the user template it is necessary to establish conformity between the named markers in a template and tags for the report, specified in additional attributes of the account.
    The new version of the program adds auto-formation of a document account using the created file of its electronic copy with registration in ISOGD. The created file is saved in the database file storage and attached to the document account. At the same time, spatial and logical connections are established with the registers of the Complex and the digital map. "Save to disk" button has been added for files attached to registry accounts. It is designed to copy a file from the database file storage to a location specified by the user.
    The new version of the program is available for download in the Download section.

  • 20.09.2023 In GIS "Panorama" version 15 the tools of importing remote sensing data of various formats and terrain models have been supplemented
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" version 15.0.1 has been developed. In the new version, the tasks for importing remote sensing data of various formats and terrain models have been updated, the tools of data analysis and design of digital vector maps have been expanded.
    The program of import of point clouds of LAS format into MTD-model has been improved. The new version of the program eliminates the formation of the raster part of the MTD model, which significantly speeds up the import process. When forming blocks of points, points are grouped into several levels corresponding to different degrees of rarefaction. This storage method speeds up the display: when the image is reduced, the points of the most sparse level are displayed, and when the image is enlarged, the points of more detailed levels are displayed. The MTD model can be built using laser scanning, remote sensing, echolocation data, as well as the results of point measurements obtained using special complexes and stereo devices. Using the ready MTD model, you can form a regular matrix with a given element size. The MTD model is a digital irregular point model. MTD model point records can contain three-dimensional spatial coordinates, as well as color, if color is present in the source data point records.
    The "Import of raster data" task has been improved. The interface of the dialog for converting a group of rasters in multi-threaded mode has been changed. Files of a binding located in a folder of source raster and corresponding to a name of the loaded file, are automatically applied at raster loading. Image binding, projection parameters and coordinate systems are determined by the program using data from GeoTIFF, IMG files, from WORLD FILE, TAB (MapInfo), MAP (OziExplorer) binding files, and from PRJ projection parameter files. The "Import of raster data" dialog contains the ability to select the method and degree of compression of the output rasters. Also in dialog there is a possibility of forming the rasters of direct access to the image of graphic files. After successfully converting a group of rasters, an MPT project is created with a list of formed files, which is automatically added into the document or opened in a separate window. If the projection parameters of the rasters added into the document do not match with its coordinate system, the image conversion is performed "on the fly". To speed up the display of rasters at various scales, a pyramid of overview images formed during conversion is used.
    The task "Import SHP-files" has been improved. There is added the ability to select a map from among the open ones in the document to update with data from the SHP format. This allows you to update not only local data sets, but also maps from the GIS Server and spatial databases. The map is updated provided that the data appending mode is enabled and the map is available for editing.
    The task "Loading coordinates from a text file" has been improved. The ability to select a semantic code for writing a point number into an object has been added into the dialog if the PT field is present in the string format. To save the height value, you can select the "Save H value" option in the "Absolute height" semantics. If the downloaded file contains semantic characteristics, text processing is carried out automatically in the encoding of the source file (UTF8 or ANSI 1251).
    The "Map Legend" task has been improved. On the "General data list" tab, the "Save as" item has been added into the context menu. This mode is intended for saving vector and raster data into a file with a different name. On the "Maps" tab, the items "All map in window" and "Set document options from map" have been added into the context menu. The "All map in window" mode allows you to scale the main document so that the selected map is completely displayed in the window. The "Set document options from map" mode is intended for setting the parameters of the projection of the selected map into the main document. On the "Maps", "Rasters", "Matrixes" and "Geoportals" tabs, the "Group data" item has been added to the context menu. This mode allows you to transfer selected data into a separate group. To quickly add data into the list, the "Insert" hotkey has been added, an analogue of the "Add map", "Add matrix", "Add raster", "Add geoportal" modes. Support has been implemented for dragging a file from the Explorer window into the "Map Legend" panel area (Drag&Drop) to add data of supported formats into the open document. When you drag data sets into the map window, they open in a separate window.
    A new mode "Find nearest neighbors for list objects" has been added into the "Lists of objects" task. For each object from one list, a search of the nearest object from another list is performed. A line is drawn between the nearest points of the found objects and the distance between the objects is indicated. Search results are recorded into a separate map, which is displayed on top of the main map.
    The "Map Editor" task has been improved. "Building a polygon by a given azimuth and distance" mode has been added into the "Measurements" group. The mode allows you quickly to put onto a map a polygon - a zone of the estimated search in the direction and distance indicated by the cursor from the control point with the possibility of changing the width and length of the search sector.
    The dialog "Current projection parameters" has been improved, which is designed to change the projection of displaying the maps opened in the window. The ability has been added to set projection parameters for any of the document maps and from map files. The projection parameters are set from the list of maps in the document, or by clicking the "From map" button. The latter method allows you to select projection parameters from a vector, raster, matrix map file or files of triangulation models or point clouds. The dialog is called through the main menu: Options - Current projection.
    Object selection dialog has been improved. Processing of "hot" keys for the "Next" (Ctrl + ">") and "Back" (Ctrl + "<") buttons has been added. In the "Semantics" tab, when entering and editing text semantics in the table, the semantics are saved and the dialog is automatically closed when pressing the Ctrl + Enter keys. The "Number of semantics" field has been added under the table. "Assign semantics possible" item into the table context menu has been added. This item is available when you select inadmissible semantics in the table. In the table, inadmissible semantics are displayed in gray. When you select the "Assign semantics possible" item, this semantics is added into the list of possible semantics of the current type of object in the classifier. To execute, you must first assign write access to the classifier (rsc file). Into the "Metrics" tab, saving and restoring the expanded view of the objects scheme has been added, and the ergonomics of the explanatory inscriptions of profile heights for objects containing 3D metrics has been improved. The functionality of the "All object in window" button has been expanded. If the main contour (0) was selected before clicking the "All object in window" button, the map is scaled so that the selected object occupies the maximum area of the window. If any other contour was selected, then the map is scaled according to the dimensions of the selected contour (subobject).
    The description of the vector sign has been expanded and the "Classifier Editor" task has been improved. There is added the ability to assign to several signatures the attribute of specifying the size of the sign according to the length of the signature, as well as assigning the attribute of prohibiting/allowing stretching to elements. This allows you to expand some of the elements of a vector sign (for example, automatically stretch the sign frame around long signatures), and shift the remaining elements (design elements: circles, squares, rhombuses). The shifted elements can be located both inside and outside the sign frame. To assign a no-stretching attribute to an element, select an areal or linear element of the sign and click the "Do not stretch the element when specifying the size of the sign" button. Examples of new vector signs have been added into the shape.sitx map. To open the map, select from the main menu: File - Example data - Open file "..\Panorama15\data\shape\shape.sitx".
    The task "Classifier processing - Translating textual names into other language" has been improved. This task can be performed as an applied task of the GIS "Panorama" and as the "Translation" mode on the "General" tab of the "Classifier Editor" task. In the new version, the active map classifier or the current one being processed is automatically offered for translation, but you can choose any other. Translation of names is carried out according to a specified dictionary - a file in CSV or TXT format. If the dictionary has a name that matches the name of the classifier being processed, it will open automatically. To form a new dictionary, you can "Download from the classificator" all names. The new version adds processing of object class names.
    The task "Cadastral documents" has been improved. In the "Formation of a map (plan) of the territory" mode, when forming a paper report, the name of the coordinate system, if the semantics "Coordinate system" is empty, is taken from the settings of the "Cadastral documents" panel. The areas in the report are rounded to whole meters. The value of the "Allowed use by document" semantics is recorded into the report regardless of whether any other semantics are filled in. The "Reading the cadastral plan of the territory and updating the map" dialog has been updated. For the "create a new map XML" option, you can select the classifier version. Data entry tools for documents and semantics groups have been updated. When forming an XML file, automatic calculation of the error value of determining the area is implemented when filling in the Area - Inaccuracy element. A structured recording of an XML file with splitting into separate lines has been implemented, which improves the readability of an XML document.
    In the "Land Survey plan version 6" mode, the formation of the SpecifyParcelApproximal - Approximal element has been implemented for cadastral work to clarify plots with clarification of the boundaries and area of the adjacent land plot. When simultaneously clarifying a land plot and its adjacent plot, it is possible to restart the formation of an XML file with changing the type of clarification: "Clarify the boundaries of the plot" or "Clarify the boundaries of adjacent plots". The "Editing attributes of a cadastral object" dialog has been updated in terms of entering and editing location information. New elements are designed for entering and editing geonyms of address objects in two versions: directory and text. Values from the directory are used to form the land survey plan version 6, and text values are used to form the technical plan and land survey plan version 9. The composition of semantics in classifiers the survey version 5 and 6 has been updated.
    The new version of the program is available for download on the Download page.

  • 18.09.2023 Map of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug on the geoportal "Bank of spatial data" has been updated
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared and placed the map of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug on the geoportal "Bank of spatial data". The map was formed using OpenStreetMap data. 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) and was saved into a packed project (MPTZ). The MPTZ format project includes a digital map of the region's territory (country, subject of the federation, administrative region) and a digital classifier. 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".

  • 15.09.2023 Training video on loading data of Shape format into internal format of the GIS "Panorama" has been prepared
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a video lesson of working the task "Import of Shape-files". The considered task is available for starting in the GIS "Panorama", "Workstation of cadastral engineer", "Workstation of agronomist" and other software products of KB "Panorama".
    The video lesson demonstrates the types of data loading. When importing, the input data are loaded using the settings for the code composition of objects and semantic characteristics according to the map resource classifier, which is located in the "Parameters" tab. Possibility of displaying contents of a database table for a current set is shown. By means of the analysis of the table contents it is possible to estimate correctness of a choice of table encoding and to establish conformity of a table field and semantics from the classifier.
    When loading data, you can use the "Primary classification". Primary classification tools are designed to evaluate the contents of unknown sets of input data in order to select the optimal classifier and configure it to import data. In this case, you can create a new classifier with an arbitrary name, perform classification and load data. Then, by visually viewing the loaded map, you can determine the optimal one from existing classifiers and configure the correspondence, or automatically assign the correct names to the added characteristics, and the corresponding image to the objects.
    You can view the training materials in the "Video lessons" section.

  • 13.09.2023 Bank of spatial data has been supplemented with a map of the Algerian People's Democratic Republic
    Geoportal "Bank of spatial data" has been supplemented with a map of the Algerian People's Democratic Republic, formed according to OpenStreetMap data. 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). 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".

  • 11.09.2023 In "Panorama-editor"version 15 the tools of creating and updating digital maps have been improved
    In KB "Panorama" the professional vectorizer "Panorama-editor" version 15.0 has been developed. The program has updated tools for preparing terrain maps, connecting external geoservices, managing the general list of data sets when displaying, editing digital classifiers and setting up conventional symbols. Possibilities of creation of the custom panels at the expense of including Python scripts have been expanded.
    Updating "Panorama-editor" version 14 is free of charge if there is a valid technical support by downloading and installing a new version.
    The "Map Editor" has been improved, the task "Expanding line object" has been updated. The new implementation of the mode allows you to perform additional digitization of multi-contour linear objects. When you select such an object, the nearest end or start point of one of the contours is determined. The contour selection is done automatically. Next, the user puts the necessary points to continue the contour.
    Digitizing a linear object is similar to creating a new linear object. In this case, all auxiliary modes of creation are available: closing the contour; deleting the last point of the contour; snapping a point to a point or segment of another object; snapping a point to a virtual grid with a given step; copying a contour fragment of another object; creation of horizontal and vertical segments; creation of segments with a rotation of 90 degrees and others.
    The mode "Create a copy of object" has been improved: when the property Snapping an object to a node of another object ("K" mode) is enabled, a snapping a created copy of object or group of selected objects on each mouse click is provided.
    The task "Create objects" has been improved. Functionality for working with the object table filter has been extended. Classifier objects are filtered by such parameters as external code, key, object name, class/layer name. By default, the filtering mode is active. When you click in the filter value field, classifier objects are automatically selected according to the current value of the selected field. Elements have been added to display information about the current object, which allows you to copy the data about the object. Ability has been added to sort the contents of the table of objects in alphabetical order in ascending order by code, key or object name by pressing the left mouse button in the column header. The selected sorting mode is saved to the ini-file and restored during the next session. For better readability of information about the object, the table view has been changed. Display of the object view has been added into the first column. When you hover over it with the mouse cursor, an additional window with an enlarged image appears.
    In the "Change of object type" mode for recoding areal objects into vector objects, the ability to build a new metric using a larger segment of the initial object has been added. This mode can be used, for example, for generalisation of the areal structures which are not expressed on the map scale. Into group of modes of "Measurement" the mode "Radial scale" has been added. On the background of the map, a scale of three rings is displayed, indicating the distance from the center of the screen on the ground. The distance between the rings is selected depending on the map display scale. The central ring is divided into 10-degree sectors, the cardinal direction are signed on it and the direction to the north is indicated. Into the "Autoshapes" group, the mode "Corner rounding" mode has been added. Editing can be performed in single mode (an object selected on the map) or group mode (a group of objects previously selected on the map or a logical set of objects). When working in group mode, all selected objects are automatically processed (after selecting the type of object to be created and entering the value of a rounding radius). When working in single mode, the rounding radius is determined by moving the mouse pointer. At processing of rotary corners of object, the possibility of rounding with a given radius is evaluated. If the sharpness of the corner does not allow construction with a given radius, the construction is performed along the maximum possible radius.
    The task of connecting geoportals has been improved. The new version has increased the speed of loading and displaying tiles. The GIS core automatically evaluates the computer parameters: the number of cores, the size of the RAM, the bandwidth of the data transmission channel. Taking into account the performance of the system, a pool of independent threads is formed to load, process and display the received data. Multi-threaded data loading reduces delays when moving the screen, scaling the map, and performing spatial queries to the geoportal. For example, for a network with a bandwidth of 100 Mbps on a 4-core processor with a clock frequency of 3.5 GHz, the speed of displaying tiles from the KB Panorama geoportal increased 6 times, and the time to receive them decreased from 500ms to 70ms.
    Access to geoportal archive data has been added. Examples of such geoportals are the Sentinel Hub geoportal or the VEGA service. The task allows you to connect to images or data on the geoportal by specifying the date, the request period, or the percentage of maximum cloudiness of satellite images. To quickly change the image from the geoportal, a new dialog has been added that allows you to set the parameters for accessing archived data (date, period, cloudiness); to set an offset or reference to a point if the geoportal has a lower accuracy than the map or data with which the geoportal is combined; to set transparency color - to view several layers at the same time; to set the color of the filter to change the color scheme of the geoportal.
    Data from geoportals can be saved into a pyramid of MBTILES tiles or into a raster for a territory selected by the user. In order to increase the speed of data access for the WMS protocol, caching of data in the form of tiles has been added. The data is saved in the form of a pyramid of tiles 1024х1024 in a folder of location of the geoportal cache. This change will allow the user to accumulate data locally and, in the absence of the Internet, use the already accumulated data cache. In order to update previously saved data, it is possible to set the lifetime of the geoportal cache in seconds.
    When connecting geoportals that are not included in the general list (wmslist_ru.xml file), connection data is saved in the general list in the "User connections" section. This will allow you to quickly connect the previously used geoportal. The list of "User connections" allows you to add data to it, and remove data from it. The mechanism for replacing the user settings file wmslist_ru.xml with a new one from the installation has been improved. A copying of previously connected user portals has been added when replacing the settings file. In the new version the possibility of connection of dynamically expanded list of available geoportals has been added. When such a geoportal is selected, a GetCapabilities request is sent to the service, and based on it, the list is automatically expanded with relevant data in the form of a tree of available layers. Support for a proxy server with domain authorization has been added.
    In the "Toolbars customizer" dialog, the ability to include python scripts into custom panels has been added. In the Tasks and scripts list, a Python scripts line has been added to select a script from the list, which must first be customized and checked in the Run applications dialog, "Scripts" tab. "Toolbars customizer" dialog allows you to create custom panels (toolbars) and fill them with frequently used modes from various application tasks and Python scripts. In the Run applications dialog, on the Scripts tab, a field has been added for entering a description of the script that will be displayed when the user clicks on the button in the "What's This?" mode. When writing scripts, several thousand functions of the GIS core (MAPAPI) are available. The function prototypes are declared as imported python scripts from the Users\Public\Documents\Panorama\py_mapapi14 folder. The order of application of MAPAPI functions, described in the document "Applied tasks". The procedure for applying MAPAPI functions described in the document "Applied tasks. Development of new modules", will also be valid for Python scripts.
    The task "Map Legend" has been improved. The new tab "General list of data" has been added. This tab is designed to display a list of data in the sequence required by the user. The general list includes all types of data: maps, rasters, matrixes, models and geoportals which are included into the open document. To classify the type of data in the general list, the indication of elements in the form of pictograms is provided. Enabling and disabling the visibility of data is carried out by pressing the left mouse button (Left) in the display area of the "checkmark/cross" icon or the "spacebar" key. Names of data elements can be presented in the form of a full path or an abbreviated name. With the help of the modes "Above", "Below", moving of the selected data element onto one position is carried out. To change the order of displaying several elements of the list, the mode of transferring elements with the mouse (Drag&Drop) is available. Selection of list items is carried out using the key combinations Ctrl + Left, Shift + Left. To restore the standard display order by data type, you must use the "Set default order" mode. For processing all types of data, the following modes are provided: "Display", "Above map", "Visibility limits", "Go to ...", "Brightness/Contrast", "Add", "Add from directory", "Close". These modes are available in the context menu on the "General list of data" tab.
    The task "Classifier editor" has been improved. Possibility of editing properties several objects at once has been added. Now you can select the necessary objects and transfer them to another layer or class, write down a common name for them, edit the visibility scales, add, delete, change the status of semantics, edit properties such as the digitization direction, the limits of sign resizing, and others. To do this, on the "Objects" tab, select the required objects in the table of classifier objects. If the table of objects displays only types of signs of objects, then you can select the current object by simultaneously pressing Ctrl+Left (left mouse button). If the table of objects is presented in string form, then the objects are selected by checking the box in the leftmost column of the table. Next, press the "Properties of selected objects" button and switch to the mode of general editing of all selected objects. Only the selected ones remain in the object table. In this mode, as well as without it, the properties of the currently selected object are displayed. But when editing any property, it is edited for all selected objects. If some property is highlighted with a yellow background or "others" is written on it, this means that it is different for the selected objects. Properties that cannot be edited at once for all selected objects are closed from editing. When you save, the edited properties are saved for all selected objects. You can exit the edit mode by pressing the "Properties of selected objects" button. You can reset the selected objects or select all currently filtered objects by clicking the "Reset selected objects" button. 2D and 3D views of objects do not have common editing for selected objects.
    The task "Correction of metric of objects", included into the group of tasks "Check and correction of data", has been improved. The "Interpolate 3D coordinate of points" mode has been added into the "Others" mode group. The mode is intended for processing linear and areal objects, in which not all metric points have a 3d coordinate. The heights for such points are calculated from the spline using the heights of other points of the object metric.
    The list of programmable signs on the demonstration map \data\shape\shape.sitx has been extended. There is added an example of a symbol - Coordinates of a point on a callout. In the conventional sign parameters, you can select a semantics code to display in the numerator of the callout line, up to 6 semantics codes to display values in the denominator in several lines, and a semantics code to display to the right of the callout line. If you enter the number "-1" as the semantics code, then the X coordinate of the first point of the callout line will be displayed with an accuracy of cm, if the number "-2" is the Y coordinate of the first point, if the number "-3" is the H coordinate of the first point. Font options can be specified for the numerator and denominator strings (equally) and for the string that appears to the right of the horizontal portion of the callout line (for example, point number or other semantics).

  • 29.08.2023 "Workstation of cadastral engineer" supports the maintenance of the engineering communications plan
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of cadastral engineer" version 15.0 has been developed. In the new version of the program the group of modes "Earth and Underground Communication Plan" has been developed. In work of new modes the classifier urban.v2.rsc is used created according to requirements of the order of the MINISTRY OF CONSTRUCTION AND HOUSING AND UTILITIES OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION No. 433/pr dated August 6, 2020 "On approval of technical requirements for maintaining registers of state information systems for urban planning, methods for assigning registration numbers to information, documents, materials placed in state information systems for ensuring urban planning activities, directories and classifiers necessary for processing the specified information, documents, materials, formats for providing information, documents, materials contained in state information systems for ensuring urban planning activities".
    To maintain an engineering communications plan, modes are used that implement the technology for creating, updating and transferring information about objects and communication networks to the state ISOGD. The mode "Copy to another map" is intended for transferring point, line and areal structures from a cadastral map onto a map created using the urban.v2.rsc classifier. When transferring objects, it is envisaged to change the code of the cadastral object onto the codes of engineering communications objects. The mode "Control communication objects attributes" ensures checking and correcting the semantics of objects-communications after they have been transferred onto the engineering communications plan, removing redundant semantics and changing the codes of the necessary semantics. The mode "Apply communication objects" calls the panel "Layouts" with the customized set of buttons for drawing objects-communications on the plan. The program uses a pre-prepared layout corresponding to the objects of the urban.v2.rsc classifier. The mode "Export to GML" ensures the unloading of the engineering communications plan into GML format with a view to its subsequent transfer for inclusion into the corresponding GISOGD registry. Unloading is carried out in accordance with the requirements of the order of the Ministry of Construction No. 433/pr dated August 6, 2020.
    In the mode "Formation of a map-plan of the territory", the formation of a text report using the OpenXML technology has been added with the recording of the results into a DOCX file. The form of the report complies with the requirements of the order of Federal Agency of the state registration and cadastre dated August, 4th, 2021 N P/0337 "On establishing the form of a map-plan of the territory, the form of the act of coordinating the location of the boundaries of land plots when performing complex cadastral works and the requirements for their preparation."
    The mode "Sign object turning points" has been improved. The ability to specify a postfix of points has been added, which ensures the formation of signatures of characteristic points of the boundaries of cadastral objects in accordance with the Order of Rosreestr No. P/0337 from 08/04/21. Obsolete elements have been removed in the dialog and a new field "Value SKP (Mt)" has been added. The value entered at this position is automatically inserted into the semantics of point objects. In all modes of formation of cadastral documents, the algorithm for filling in the SCP of characteristic points has been changed. For new characteristic points, in the absence of a value in the MT semantics, a value is inserted from the settings of the "Cadastral documents" module.
    The mode "Base of cadastral works" has been improved. Fields "Type of network" and "Coordinate system" have been added into the table of points of the geodetic network, which were not enough to fill in the corresponding tables in the land survey and technical plans. Filling and editing these fields has been added into the dialog of geodetic points editing, a field displaying the coordinate system has been added into the tables with lists of geodetic points. To obtain information about geodetic points, the dialogs "Land Survey plan", "Technical plan", "Map-plan of the territory" have been improved, the selection of a geodetic network point from the catalog (CSV file format) has been replaced with a dialog with a list of geopoints from the database of cadastral works. Multiple selection of several survey points is supported.
    In mode "Editing the semantics of object of cadastral works", the algorithm for saving information for a multicontour object into the semantics of the main object of the set has been improved. Geonyms of address elements are maintained in two versions: in the form of a simple text and in the form of value from a directory. Values from a directory are used for support of formation of the XML-document of the land survey plan of version 6.
    "Sign the shortest distance to selected objects" mode has been improved, the ability has been added to select not only a linear, but also a point and areal object as a source object. This feature implements the functions of the "Range calculator", with drawing lines of soundings (ranges) and signatures of the line length onto the map.
    The dialog "Search by cadastral number or address" has been improved. The element of selecting the search source has been changed, three sources have been made: a map, EGRN information and Yandex. The checkbox next to the "Find" button has been removed, its functions have been moved to the "Search source" element. If search operations do not have access to the necessary external resources (sites), a pop-up message is displayed with recording into the message log. There are added pop-up diagnostic messages: "API key for searching on an external resource is not filled", "Search string is not filled".
    To support work with 3D metrics of objects obtained as a result of surveying terrain from unmanned aerial vehicles by point cloud, in the "Calculation of missing heights of points of a line" mode, the height interpolation algorithm has been changed. Height values of intermediate points (whose metrics are not copied from cloud points) are calculated using the spline interpolation method. There are two options for calling the mode: for one selected object or for a group of selected objects.
    The task of connecting geoportals has been improved. The speed of loading and displaying tiles has been increased due to the automatic evaluation of computer parameters and the formation of a pool of independent threads for loading, processing and displaying the received data. So for a network with a bandwidth of 100 Mbps on a 4-core processor with a clock frequency of 3.5 GHz, the speed of displaying tiles from the KB Panorama geoportal has increased in 6 times, and the time to receive them has decreased from 500 ms to 70 ms. In order to increase the speed of data access for the WMS protocol, caching of data in the form of tiles has been added. The data is saved as a pyramid of 1024x1024 tiles in the geoportal cache location folder. This change will allow the user to accumulate data locally and, in the absence of the Internet, use the already accumulated data cache. In order to update previously saved data, it is possible to set the lifetime of the geoportal cache in seconds. Support for a proxy server with domain authorization has been added.
    In the "Map Editor" task, the functionality for working with the filter of the table of objects during their creation has been expanded. Filtration of the classifier objects is carried out by such parameters as external code, key, object name, class/layer name. In the "Map Legend" task, a new tab "General list of data" has been added, designed to display a list of data in the sequence necessary for the user. The general list includes all types of data: maps, rasters, matrixes, models and geoportals which are included in the open document. In the "Classifier editor" task, the ability to edit the properties of several objects at once has been added. Now you can select the necessary objects and transfer them to another layer or class, write down a common name for them, edit the visibility scales, add, delete, change the status of semantics, edit properties such as the digitization direction, the limits of sign resizing, and others.
    The new version of the program is available on the website in the Download section.

  • 26.08.2023 In mobile GIS "Panorama Mobile" for domestic Aurora OS the tools of analyzing terrain maps have been expanded
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama Mobile" version 1.3 for Aurora OS has been developed. The new version adds a ring scale ruler, implements the ability to quickly save user points, set the format for displaying coordinates and navigate to the entered coordinates. Support of password-protected data and fast change of visibility of the displayed data has been added.
    In the program a possibility of display of a ring ruler has been implemented. The ring ruler allows to visually estimate distances between objects of a map. On the background of the map, a scale of three rings is displayed, indicating the distance from the center of the screen on the ground. The distance between the rings is dynamically selected depending on the map display scale. For ease of orientation, the central ring is divided into 10-degree sectors, the cardinal points are signed on it and the direction to the north is indicated.
    For possibility of fast creation of marks on the map the task "Navigator" has been implemented. This task allows you to save your location on the map and to carry out transition by earlier saved points. When specifying a point, the user can add a text comment and set the color of the point. The task was implemented by means of the user map the GIS "Panorama". At the expense of it the map with the saved points can be transferred to desktop products (GIS "Panorama", "Panorama-editor", GIS Panorama Mini) and to be used as the initial data for further analysis by means of a wide range of applied tasks.
    For precise positioning of the center of the screen, the "Go to point" mode has been added. The user can get the coordinates of a place from a third-party source and enter them in the dialog box for going to the map location of interest. The mode supports change of a format of entered coordinates and dynamically recalculates the specified coordinates at format change.
    Support for encrypted user maps has been added. When opening protected data, the application will prompt you to enter a password to access this data. For example, this mode can be used when restricting access to the data of the "Navigator" task containing information about saved points.
    The new version supports fast change of data visibility for possibility of the joint analysis of maps and and terrain images. This functionality allows you to dynamically disable the display of vector data used in conjunction with a raster background or geoportals. For the convenience of analyzing the map of the area, the ability to disable the mode of displaying information about objects at a specified point using the application settings has been added.
    GIS "Panorama Mobile" allows you to open and edit the main formats of digital maps of GIS "Panorama" and popular geoportals on mobile devices based on the Aurora OS, to process information from the built-in GPS/GLONASS receiver. The user can prepare in advance a necessary set of spatial data in one of desktop products (GIS "Panorama", Panorama-editor, GIS Panorama Mini) and to transfer it into the mobile GIS "Panorama Mobile". The process of working with data is carried out autonomously, without connecting to the Internet. When the user moves, his current position is dynamically displayed according to the coordinates obtained from the GPS/GLONASS receiver. For ease of use, it is possible to synchronize the position of the map with the current location. To save the coordinates obtained during movement, a track recording mode is provided, which creates a separate map and puts the trajectory of movement onto it. For all objects of a map during the work the basic information is provided . The program is developed on the basis of the GIS Constructor toolkit, which provides components for creating mobile applications for working with digital maps in the C++ programming language using the Qt.

  • 24.08.2023 "Workstation of urban planner" forms the urban planning plan of the land plot in accordance with the order of the Ministry of Construction of the Russian Federation dated 17.02.2023 No. 104/pr
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of urban planner" version 15.0 has been developed. The program implements the formation of the document "Urban-planning plan of a land plot" in accordance with the requirements of the order of the Ministry of Construction and Housing and Communal Services of the Russian Federation dated April 25, 2017 No. 741/pr "On approval of the form of an urban development plan for a land plot and the procedure for filling it out", taking into account the latest changes and additions of editions of the Orders of the Ministry of Construction of the Russian Federation of February 27, 2020 No. 94/pr, of February 18, 2021 No. 72/pr, of September 2, 2021 No. 635/pr, of February 17, 2023 No. 104/pr.
    In order to automate the process of creating an urban-planning plan, a procedure has been developed for generating a reporting document based on pre-prepared templates. The urban-planning plan consists of text and graphic parts.
    To fill in the text part of the report, information stored in the database is used, as well as the metrics and semantics of map objects that characterize urban conditions: the boundaries of the land plot, existing capital construction objects, the zone of permitted construction, the boundaries of the zone of permissible location of the object, zones with special conditions for the use of the territory , red lines, servitudes. All necessary objects are included into survey.rsc classifier. To fill in the graphic part (plot drawing), pre-prepared graphic files are used.
    When preparing data, the user needs to map the objects of urban planning and fill in the identification semantics. Next, create in the database the accounts in the registers of land plots and objects of capital construction and establish spatial and logical links between the records in the database and the objects of the electronic map.
    To generate a document, a specialized dialog has been developed that can be called on the reports panel or in the register of land plots. Part of the information is filled in automatically according to the information from the database and according to the semantics of the map objects. The other part is filled in the form of a dialog and stored in the database for further use. Information that is not reflected in the dialog is included in the printed form of the document. After formation the urban plan is displayed in the office suite, where the user can fill in the missing information.
    The form of the document is created on the basis of prepared templates of the dot format. Templates contain a descriptive part and named markers that tell the program where to insert data. The document generation procedure is customizable. The user can modify the template to suit different regional and departmental requirements. Between attributes of a land plot and markers in the template the interrelation is set which is customized in the directory "Directory of additional attributes of a land plot". To exchange data with a digital map in the same directory any semantic characteristic of object can be assigned to each attribute according to the survey.rsc classifier.
    The generated urban plan can be saved on disk in doc, docx, pdf formats. If necessary, an electronic copy of the document is loaded into the database file storage. In this case, the document file is attached to the list of files of the land plot.
    By means of the "Update of semantics on a map" mode, it is possible to load the attributive information of the urban plan into the digital map's object. A necessary condition for updating the semantics is the existence of a link between recording the plot in the database and the object on the map.

  • 22.08.2023 GIS "Panorama" version 15 provides new tools of creating and applying digital terrain models
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" version 15.0 has been developed. The program has updated the basic tasks of creating and updating digital maps of the area, connecting external geoservices, extending tools through user Python scripts, managing the general list of data sets when displaying, editing digital classifiers and setting up conventional symbols, preparing cadastral documents and maintaining a database of cadastral works. In the new version, a group of tools "Plan of ground and underground communications" has been developed and other tasks have been updated.
    Updating GIS "Panorama" version 14 is free of charge if there is a valid technical support by downloading and installing a new version.
    The "Map Editor" has been improved, the task "Create objects" has been updated. Functionality for working with the object table filter has been extended. Classifier objects are filtered by such parameters as external code, key, object name, class/layer name. By default, the filtering mode is active. When you click in the filter value field, classifier objects are automatically selected according to the current value of the selected field. Elements have been added to display information about the current object, which allows you to copy the data about the object. Ability has been added to sort the contents of the table of objects in alphabetical order in ascending order by code, key or object name by pressing the left mouse button in the column header. The selected sorting mode is saved to the ini-file and restored during the next session. For better readability of information about the object, the table view has been changed. Display of the object view has been added into the first column. When you hover over it with the mouse cursor, an additional window with an enlarged image appears.
    In the "Change of object type" mode for recoding areal objects into vector objects, the ability to build a new metric using a larger segment of the initial object has been added. This mode can be used, for example, for generalisation of the areal structures which are not expressed on the map scale. Into group of modes of "Measurement" the mode "Radial scale" has been added. On the background of the map, a scale of three rings is displayed, indicating the distance from the center of the screen on the ground. The distance between the rings is selected depending on the map display scale. The central ring is divided into 10-degree sectors, the cardinal direction are signed on it and the direction to the north is indicated. Into the "Autoshapes" group, the mode "Corner rounding" mode has been added. Editing can be performed in single mode (an object selected on the map) or group mode (a group of objects previously selected on the map or a logical set of objects). When working in group mode, all selected objects are automatically processed (after selecting the type of object to be created and entering the value of a rounding radius). When working in single mode, the rounding radius is determined by moving the mouse pointer. At processing of rotary corners of object, the possibility of rounding with a given radius is evaluated. If the sharpness of the corner does not allow construction with a given radius, the construction is performed along the maximum possible radius.
    The mode "Expanding line object" has been improved. The new implementation of the mode allows you to perform additional digitization of multi-contour linear objects. When you select such an object, the nearest end or start point of one of the contours is determined. The contour selection is done automatically. Next, the user puts the necessary points to continue the contour. Digitizing a linear object is similar to creating a new linear object. In this case, all auxiliary modes of creation are available: closing the contour; deleting the last point of the contour; snapping a point to a point or segment of another object; snapping a point to a virtual grid with a given step; copying a contour fragment of another object; creation of horizontal and vertical segments; creation of segments with a rotation of 90 degrees and others.
    The mode "Create a copy of object" has been improved: when the property Snapping an object to a node of another object ("K" mode) is enabled, a snapping a created copy of object or group of selected objects on each mouse click is provided.
    The task of connecting geoportals has been improved. The new version has increased the speed of loading and displaying tiles. The GIS core automatically evaluates the computer parameters: the number of cores, the size of the RAM, the bandwidth of the data transmission channel. Taking into account the performance of the system, a pool of independent threads is formed to load, process and display the received data. Multi-threaded data loading reduces delays when moving the screen, scaling the map, and performing spatial queries to the geoportal. For example, for a network with a bandwidth of 100 Mbps on a 4-core processor with a clock frequency of 3.5 GHz, the speed of displaying tiles from the KB Panorama geoportal increased 6 times, and the time to receive them decreased from 500ms to 70ms.
    Access to geoportal archive data has been added. Examples of such geoportals are the Sentinel Hub geoportal or the VEGA service. The task allows you to connect to images or data on the geoportal by specifying the date, the request period, or the percentage of maximum cloudiness of satellite images. To quickly change the image from the geoportal, a new dialog has been added that allows you to set the parameters for accessing archived data (date, period, cloudiness); to set an offset or reference to a point if the geoportal has a lower accuracy than the map or data with which the geoportal is combined; to set transparency color - to view several layers at the same time; to set the color of the filter to change the color scheme of the geoportal.
    Data from geoportals can be saved into a pyramid of MBTILES tiles or into a raster for a territory selected by the user. In order to increase the speed of data access for the WMS protocol, caching of data in the form of tiles has been added. The data is saved in the form of a pyramid of tiles 1024х1024 in a folder of location of the geoportal cache. This change will allow the user to accumulate data locally and, in the absence of the Internet, use the already accumulated data cache. In order to update previously saved data, it is possible to set the lifetime of the geoportal cache in seconds.
    When connecting geoportals that are not included in the general list (wmslist_ru.xml file), connection data is saved in the general list in the "User connections" section. This will allow you to quickly connect the previously used geoportal. The list of "User connections" allows you to add data to it, and remove data from it. The mechanism for replacing the user settings file wmslist_ru.xml with a new one from the installation has been improved. A copying of previously connected user portals has been added when replacing the settings file. In the new version the possibility of connection of dynamically expanded list of available geoportals has been added. When such a geoportal is selected, a GetCapabilities request is sent to the service, and based on it, the list is automatically expanded with relevant data in the form of a tree of available layers. Support for a proxy server with domain authorization has been added.
    In the "Toolbars customizer" dialog, the ability to include python scripts into custom panels has been added. In the Tasks and scripts list, a Python scripts line has been added to select a script from the list, which must first be customized and checked in the Run applications dialog, "Scripts" tab. Toolbars customizer dialog allows you to create custom panels (toolbars) and fill them with frequently used modes from various application tasks and python scripts. In the Run applications dialog, on the Scripts tab, a field has been added for entering a description of the script that will be displayed when the user clicks on the button in the "What's This?" mode. When writing scripts, several thousand functions of the GIS core (MAPAPI) are available. The function prototypes are declared as imported python scripts from the Users\Public\Documents\Panorama\py_mapapi14 folder. The order of application of MAPAPI functions, described in the document "Applied tasks". The procedure for applying MAPAPI functions described in the document "Applied tasks. Development of new modules", will also be valid for python scripts.
    The task "Map Legend" has been improved. The new tab "General list of data" has been added. This tab is designed to display a list of data in the sequence required by the user. The general list includes all types of data: maps, rasters, matrixes, models and geoportals which are included into the open document. To classify the type of data in the general list, the indication of elements in the form of pictograms is provided. Enabling and disabling the visibility of data is carried out by pressing the left mouse button (Left) in the display area of the "checkmark/cross" icon or the space bar. Names of data elements can be presented in the form of a full path or an abbreviated name. With the help of the modes "Above", "Below", moving of the selected data element onto one position is carried out. To change the order of displaying several elements of the list, the mode of transferring elements with the mouse (Drag&Drop) is available. Selection of list items is carried out using the key combinations Ctrl + Left, Shift + Left. To restore the standard display order by data type, you must use the "Set default data layout" mode. For processing all types of data, the following modes are provided: "Display", "Above map", "Visibility limits", "Go to ...", "Brightness/Contrast", "Add", "Add from directory", "Close". These modes are available in the context menu on the "General list of data" tab.
    The task "Classifier editor" has been improved. Possibility of editing properties several objects at once has been added. Now you can select the necessary objects and transfer them to another layer or class, write down a common name for them, edit the visibility scales, add, delete, change the status of semantics, edit properties such as the digitization direction, the limits of sign resizing, and others. To do this, on the "Objects" tab, select the required objects in the table of classifier objects. If the table of objects displays only types of signs of objects, then you can select the current object by simultaneously pressing Ctrl+Left (left mouse button). If the table of objects is presented in string form, then the objects are selected by checking the box in the leftmost column of the table. Next, press the "Properties of selected objects" button and switch to the mode of general editing of all selected objects. Only the selected ones remain in the object table. In this mode, as well as without it, the properties of the currently selected object are displayed. But when editing any property, it is edited for all selected objects. If some property is highlighted with a yellow background or "others" is written on it, this means that it is different for the selected objects. Properties that cannot be edited at once for all selected objects are closed from editing. When you save, the edited properties are saved for all selected objects. You can exit the edit mode by pressing the "Properties of selected objects" button. You can reset the selected objects or select all currently filtered objects by clicking the "Reset selected objects" button. 2D and 3D views of objects do not have common editing for selected objects.
    The "Print classifier to Word" task, included in the "Classifier processing" task group, has been improved. The task is designed to generate a report on the map classifier in the form of an MS Word document. A description of the IML libraries used in the classifier has been added into the report. IML libraries contain non-standard object characters developed by the user. The description of each non-standard conventional symbol used in the classifier contains the name of the symbol, the parameters of the symbol and the list of objects for which display this symbol is used.
    The task "Correction of metric of objects", included into the group of tasks "Check and correction of data", has been improved. The "Interpolate 3D coordinate of points" mode has been added into the "Others" mode group. The mode is intended for processing linear and areal objects, in which not all metric points have a 3d coordinate. The heights for such points are calculated from the spline using the heights of other points of the object metric.
    The list of programmable signs on the demonstration map \data\shape\shape.sitx has been extended. There is added an example of a symbol - Coordinates of a point on a callout. In the conventional sign parameters, you can select a semantics code to display in the numerator of the callout line, up to 6 semantics codes to display values in the denominator in several lines, and a semantics code to display to the right of the callout line. If you enter the number "-1" as the semantics code, then the X coordinate of the first point of the callout line will be displayed with an accuracy of up to cm, if the number "-2" is the Y coordinate of the first point, if the number "-3" is the H coordinate of the first point. Font options can be specified for the numerator and denominator strings (equally) and for the string that appears to the right of the horizontal portion of the callout line (for example, point number or other semantics).
    The module "Geodesy editor" has been improved. The mode "Sign object turning points" has been improved. The ability to specify a postfix of points has been added, which ensures the formation of signatures of characteristic points of the boundaries of cadastral objects in accordance with the Order of Rosreestr No. P/0337 from 08/04/21. Obsolete elements have been removed and a new element "Value SKP (Mt)" has been added. The dialog "Search by cadastral number or address" has been improved. The search source selection element has been changed, three sources have been made: a map, EGRN information and Yandex. The "Sign the shortest distance to selected features" mode has been improved, the ability to select not only a linear, but also a point and areal object as a source object has been added. This feature implements the functions of the "Range calculator" with drawing lines of measurements (ranges) and signatures of the line length on the map. To support work with 3D metrics of objects obtained as a result of surveying terrain from a UAV by a point cloud, in the "Calculate missing line point heights" mode, the height interpolation algorithm has been changed. Height values of intermediate points (whose metrics are not copied from point objects) are calculated using the spline interpolation method.
    The module "Cadastral documents" has been improved. In the "Formation of a map-plan of the territory" mode, the formation of a text report has been added. The report is generated using the OpenXML technology and written into a DOCX file. The form of the report complies with the requirements of the order of the Federal Service for State Registration and Cadastre dated August 4, 2021 N P/0337. The report contains sections of the form Map-plan of the territory and the act of agreeing on the boundaries of land plots when performing complex cadastral work.
    The mode "Base of cadastral works" has been improved. Two fields have been added into the table of geodetic network points: "Network type" and "Coordinate system", which were not enough to fill in the corresponding tables in the land survey and technical plans. Filling in and editing these fields has been added into the dialog of editing geodetic points, a field displaying the coordinate system has been added into the tables with lists of geodetic points. The version of the database of cadastral works has been changed to 3.2. To obtain information about geodetic points, the dialogs "Land survey plan ","Technical plan", "Map-plan of the territory" have been improved, the selection of a geodetic network point from the catalog (CSV format file) has been replaced by a dialog with a list of geopoints from the database of cadastral works. Multiple selection of several survey points is supported. The button "Add a new document from the database" has been restored in the "Land survey plan"" dialog. In the "Formation of a map-plan of the territory" mode, when filling in the XML file information about the state of the geodetic network point in the absence of information about the state of the external sign of the point, the center of the point and the mark, but the presence of a code from the directory, the value corresponding to the code from the directory is written into the StateConservation element "Preserved; Not found; Lost."
    A new panel "Earth and Underground communications Plan" has been developed. Buttons for the following modes have been added into the panel: "Copy to another map", "Control communication object attributes", "Applying communications objects", "Export to GML". The modes use the new classifier urban.v2.rsc, created in accordance with the requirements of the Order of the MINISTRY OF CONSTRUCTION AND HOUSING AND UTILITIES OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION No. 433/pr dated August 6, 2020 "On approval of technical requirements for maintaining registers of state information systems for urban planning, methods for assigning registration numbers to information, documents, materials placed in state information systems for ensuring urban planning activities, directories and classifiers necessary for processing the specified information, documents, materials, formats for providing information, documents, materials contained in state information systems for ensuring urban planning activities".

  • 14.08.2023 A training video has been prepared on establishing a connection between a map object and a database table record in the GIS "Panorama"
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a video lesson on establishing the relationship between the map object and the selected record of the database table. The management system of the user Database is a component of the GIS "Panorama" and is designed to work with data stored in separate database tables on a local or network drive. Work with DBMS dBase, MySQL, PostgreSQL is supported. The external database may contain attributive information about map objects in addition to its semantic characteristics. The database allows to structure, store and process the data of various type by means of creation of the user projects.
    The video lesson demonstrates two types of links between a map object and a selected record in a database table - interactive linking (each object is selected by the user on the map) and automatic linking of map objects according to the specified list of semantic characteristics of objects. The link of an object with a map is established by saving unique data about the map object into the table, which are its number - the LINKOBJECT field and the name of the map sheet on which it is located - the LINKSHEET field. As a result of establishing a link, records appear in these fields, indicating that the object is linked with the map.

  • 31.07.2023 GIS Constructor toolkit for Qt Designer provides cross-platform development of GIS applications
    In KB "Panorama" the toolkit has been developed for creating cross-platform GIS applications (for Linux and MS Windows) - GIS Constructor for Qt Designer version 14.0.1.2. The program allows to create 64-bit GIS applications in the Visual Studio environment with use of libraries of the Qt 5.12 framework. For visual design, the Qt Visual Studio Tools extension is used. The toolkit is a set of visual components, classes and API functions of the GIS core for working with spatial data.
    GIS Constructor for Windows OS has been developed on the basis of a similar software product for Linux OS and has the same set of components and classes using the Qt framework. GIS applications created with use of GIS Constructor for the Linux OS variant can be built on Windows x64 version 7 and higher and vice versa.
    GIS Constructor includes tools of displaying spatial data with possibility of customizing conventional symbols (external view of objects), positioning and scaling of the map image. Spatial data can be located both on the local computer and on a remote GIS Server. The components provide access to spatial data using web services via international OGC protocols (obtaining a map image, obtaining and changing data about map objects).
    In GIS Constructor a support of local, state and international systems of coordinates has been implemented. There are functions of transformation of coordinates. Datum parameters and parameters of transition between coordinate systems are customized by the user. This allows you to develop geographic information systems for various purposes and levels of use - corporate, municipal, regional and federal.
    Creating a GIS application based on GIS Constructor takes only a few steps. The specificity of visual programming is such that the work of all its components is built around one main spatial data access component that performs all the work of accessing spatial data and managing their display. Further, all the functionality is built up in three steps: the required component is placed on the form, is associated with the access component, and its programmatic configuration is performed to start the task predefined for it (for example, by pressing the corresponding button in the interface, the map object is searched for at the click point, it is highlighted by blinking and showing a dialog with the characteristics of the object).
    The new version of the program is available for download on the Download page.

  • 28.07.2023 In GIS WebServer SE the tools for analyzing zones of flooding of territories have been implemented
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebServer SE version 6.15.0 has been developed for operating systems Astra Linux, CentOS, Ubuntu, MS Windows. In the new version the tools of spatial analysis and data search have been expanded. Components for constructing a flood zone and searching for objects by name have been added, the administration module has been improved.
    The component of constructing a zone of flooding allows to determine flooding area on a map, using the information from a matrix of heights. When accessing the GIS WebService SE application server, the slope of the analyzed area of the terrain is investigated, the alignments are formed along the riverbed, and the level of water rise is taken into account. The result is displayed as an image of a matrix of qualities and a vector object showing the boundaries of the spill.
    The Search by name component is used for text search of objects by all characteristics. Conditions can be specified separately for each of maps, it is also possible to perform a group query for all maps. Search parameters can be restored from the stored query history.
    GIS WebServer SE is used to build closed corporate systems to ensure the protection of data having a security classification or trade secret. The program is certified for level 2 lack of undeclared features. GIS WebServer SE is implemented using the GIS WebToolKit SE toolkit, which can be used in development tools using JavaScript and TypeScript.
    On the basis of GIS WebServer SE and other server products of KB "Panorama" the Regional GIS of the Ryazan region (RGIS RО) has been implemented. RGIS RО is a specialized multifunctional geoportal, the interactive capabilities of which provide access to reliable information about objects of various categories. RGIS RO is available to a wide range of users - to the authorities, citizens, organizations, including potential investors and private companies. The regional GIS of the Ryazan region helps in making decisions in various areas of socio-economic development.

  • 21.07.2023 Training video on setting up a license in the GIS "Panorama" has been prepared
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a video lesson on demonstrating the license settings. GIS "Panorama" uses three types of licenses: fixed hardware license (USB key), fixed license (registration key) and floating hardware license (USB key).
    A fixed hardware license requires a USB dongle for each workstation. A fixed license (registration key) involves linking the application to computer settings based on registration data sent by e-mail. A floating hardware license assumes that a local network has one USB dongle and a running license server that allows you to simultaneously run a paid number of software copies on any computers by connecting in turn.
    You can configure, register, activate and deactivate licenses using the "Appear license" dialog from the "Options" menu, "License kind" item of the main panel. In the dialog, by clicking on the "i" (License Information) icon, you can find out all the license parameters: availability, expiration dates, type of operating system, available programs.

  • 19.07.2023 Tools for creating user maps have been improved in the mobile GIS "Panorama Mobile" for the domestic OS Aurora
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama Mobile" version 1.2.7 has been developed for OS Aurora. In the new version the editing tools of the spatial data have been expanded, the user interface for working on devices with different screen resolutions has been improved.
    The task of editing vector data has been supplemented with new modes. Tools have been added for drawing objects of type "title" with possibility of alignment of the text. In the new version, the position of existing map objects can be refined using the "Editing object points" mode. This mode allows each of the points of the object's contours to be moved separately. If the object is no longer relevant, the user can remove it from the map using the appropriate mode. To protect against erroneous cancellation of the map's editing action, information can be restored using the "Redo the canceled operation" mode. All user actions are saved in the transaction log of the map and can be restored using this mode. Maps with the obtained information about the area can be transferred to desktop products (GIS "Panorama", Panorama-editor, GIS Panorama Mini) and used as initial data for a wide range of applied tasks.
    To improve user interaction with the application, saving the state of data at the time of closing, support for changing the screen orientation, and the ability to quickly navigate to a document have been added. When closing the data, as well as the application itself, the scale, current position, color model, brightness, contrast, and other parameters are saved. When working with a set of spatial data for different territories, the ability to quickly switch to the document of interest using the drop-down menu item from the "Data List" dialog has been implemented. When using the application on various mobile devices, the advantages of both tablets (wide screen) and smartphones (narrow screen) are realized by dynamically changing the orientation of the application controls to landscape or portrait modes.
    GIS "Panorama Mobile" allows you to open and edit the main formats of digital maps of GIS "Panorama" and popular geoportals on mobile devices based on the Aurora OS, to process information from the built-in GPS/GLONASS receiver. The user can prepare in advance a necessary set of spatial data in one of desktop products (GIS "Panorama", Panorama-editor, GIS Panorama Mini) and to transfer it into the mobile GIS "Panorama Mobile". The process of working with data is carried out autonomously, without connecting to the Internet. When the user moves, his current position is dynamically displayed according to the coordinates obtained from the GPS/GLONASS receiver. For ease of use, it is possible to synchronize the position of the map with the current location. To save the coordinates obtained during movement, a track recording mode is provided, which creates a separate map and puts the trajectory of movement onto it. For all objects of a map during the work the basic information is provided . The program is developed on the basis of the GIS Constructor toolkit, which provides components for creating mobile applications for working with digital maps in the C++ programming language using the Qt.
    OS Aurora - is a Russian mobile operating system developed by the "Open mobile platform" company. Operating system been created to build a trusted mobile infrastructure, protect sensitive information in government organizations, large and medium-sized commercial companies. Contributes to ensuring the technological sovereignty of the state through a secure mobile environment and meets all the requirements of regulators in the field of national security and information protection.

    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a video lesson about the functionality of the "Classifier Editor" task available to users in the GIS "Panorama". Classifier of a digital map is a set of description of layers of a vector map, views of objects and their conventional symbols, types of semantic characteristics and the values accepted by them, presented in a digital form. Classifiers are created taking into account subjects and a scale of a map.
    The "Classifier editor" task provides management of the composition of layers, objects and attributes, formation of a palette and fonts, creation and editing of the appearance of symbols for 2D and 3D display of spatial data. The classifier editor is divided into tabs. The video lesson demonstrates the functionality of each tab, as well as shows the examples of data.
    On the "Palette" tab, the ability to create several palettes for special-purpose maps has been added. In the example of data the use of several palettes on sea maps has been demonstrated. In the "Layers" section, the formation of classes, that is, layers of a lower level, has been implemented. With the help of classes, a faster search for objects on the map, changes in the contents of the display, and selection of an object for drawing on the map are performed.
    For display of densely located point symbols, an automatic clustering algorithm has been implemented, start of which is carried out in the "Clusters" tab. When the map is heavily loaded, it is possible to combine signs of similar meaning into groups and, if the conditions are met, instead of several signs, display one - generalizing one. Maps with the clusters customized in the classifier are automatically supported in all desktop and web applications, as well as in applications developed in GIS ToolKit and a GIS Constructor.

  • 30.06.2023 In GIS "Panorama" the tools of creating maps and terrain models have been added
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" version 14.6.0 has been developed. In the new version, tools for creating and and updating maps of the area have been added, connection of geoportals by different protocols and at local placement has been improved. Building a matrix of quality based on a point cloud from the "Panorama Photo" program has been automated, the basic classifiers of topographic maps and plans have been updated at the expense of use of object classes (layer tree), the process of exporting images into various graphic formats has been automated. The block of cadastral and geodesy tasks has been updated.
    The task "Map Editor" has been improved. In modes of creating new objects, the possibility of a binding to the geometrical center of the object selected on the map has been added. The new auxiliary mode is implemented in the form of the button on the auxiliary panel and a menu item appearing by pressing the right mouse button. The mode "Create an object copy" has been improved. This mode allows you to create copies of the selected object or copies of marked objects. The new implementation of the mode allows you to draw a copy of an object or group of marked objects for each mouse click. This method allows you to increase the speed of creating the same type of objects.
    In the "Object samples" mode, the item "Clear object view" has been added into the menu by the right mouse button. There are increased the maximum number of objects samples (buttons) in the layout ruler up to 32 and the maximum number of rulers up to 12. Samples of created objects is a panel with buttons containing images of objects of the selected type or a group of objects with prepared semantics or graphic symbols outside the classifier. The use of pre-prepared samples speeds up the process of creating and updating vector terrain maps for various purposes.
    The task of connecting geoportals has been improved. Into the task the ability to work offline with a prepared copy of data from geoportals has been added. This mode allows you to work with the pyramid of tiles that the user has, without passing requests to the selected geoportals. Enabling this mode is possible in the settings menu for certain geoportals or for all geoportals. You can form a local pyramid of tiles in advance when the geoportal is connected, by clicking the menu item the File - Export to a tile pyramid. At the same time, in addition to the formed Mbtiles pyramid, the corresponding tiles will also be stored in the cache. Offline mode allows you to increase the speed and security of opening and displaying geoportals in the absence of a connection. In case of an error in establishing a connection with a geoportal over HTTPS protocol, an automatic re-request over HTTP protocol (and vice versa HTTPS after HTTP) has been added in case the geoportal is accessible over another protocol.
    The task "Creating a matrix of qualities" has been improved, designed to build matrixes of qualities and matrixes of heights according to the coordinates of points of objects of a vector map or MTD-model (point cloud). The procedure for creating a matrix of heights based on MTD-models, formed by the program for processing aerial photography materials (Panorama Photo), has been updated. The heights of the resulting matrix are calculated by the method of weight-average interpolation of the heights of the nearest points of the MTD model.
    The Panorama Photo program is designed to automatically obtain digital information about the terrain based on the materials of aerial photography. The primary processing product is a point cloud, on the basis of which a matrix of heights and an orthophotomap are created.
    The task "Classifier editor" has been improved. The following modes have been added into the "Clusters" tab: creating a new cluster's sign by copying the selected one, copying a cluster sign from another classifier via the clipboard. The cluster sign is used to display densely spaced point symbols of the same view of objects with a common sign. The tab selects the views of objects related to each type of cluster, the cell sizes vertically and horizontally, the semantics code for specifying the current number of objects in the cluster, the view of cluster symbol, the limiting percentage of increasing the size of the cluster symbol and the limiting number of objects corresponding to the maximum size of the symbol cluster. When copying a cluster's sign from one classifier to another, it is necessary to re-assign the views of objects related to this cluster.
    The program "Print classifier to Word" has been improved. The program is designed to form a report by the map classifier in the form of an MS Word document. The report contains tables of layers, semantics and objects. In the new version of the program a support of classes has been added. The output of layers and classes is performed in alphabetical order, taking into account the hierarchy: layer / class / subclass. In the table of semantics, the accuracy of storing numeric semantics and units of measurement have been added. In order to improve readability when creating a document, the following has been added: merging subheading cells containing the names of layers and classes; separation of cells containing the names of objects of the same series.
    By means of the new program, a report on the map5000m.rsc classifier has been prepared. This classifier contains 22 layers, more than 70 classes, more than 300 semantics and about 2000 views of objects. Most layer objects are divided into classes. For example, the "Communications" layer contains the following classes: Pipelines, Sewers, Wells, Power transmission and communication lines, Supports and trusses, Communication objects. Some objects are grouped into series. For example, pipelines: Petrol pipeline, Fuel oil pipeline and others. Objects of the same series may have a different view on the map, but always have the same localization, code, and set of semantic characteristics. In the new report, the names and views of objects in the series are divided into separate cells of the table, which ensured full correspondence between the views and names of objects. The common properties of a series of objects are grouped into common blocks.
    The task "Data list" has been improved. On the "Rasters" tab, a call to the "Exporting rasters to format TIFF, JPEG, BMP, PCX" dialog is added, which is intended for exporting a rasters group of document to files of graphic formats. Due to the use of multi-threaded processing on a multi-core processor, the time for exporting a group of rasters was reduced by 5-7 times. The new dialog is called by the "Save as ..." item of the context menu for the "Rasters" branch.
    Module "Geodesy editor" has been improved. For the modes "Object intersection calculation", "View object intersection" and "Object intersection control" the processing of lists of objects has been accelerated and multi-threaded processing of intersections has been implemented, including taking into account multipolygons. The algorithm for calculating the intersection area for multi-contour objects has been changed. Display of the number of objects in the original data lists and the counter of the number of intersections have been added. In the "Object intersection calculation" mode, an indication of the elapsed time and how much time is left until the completion of the calculation has been added. In the "To sign the area and the name of object" mode, the dividing line is drawn taking into account the scale of the map. In the "Generate road profile" mode dialog, the font height of on-screen elements has been corrected.
    The module "Cadastral documents" has been improved. Mode "Reading the cadastral plan of the territory and updating the map" has been refined. Reading information about the coordinate system from XML files according to the "extract_cadastral_plan_territory" scheme has been implemented. When selecting XML files with the extract_cadastral_plan_territory schema type, information about the coordinate system of each object in the file is read and unique values are entered into the "Source data coordinate systems" table. If the XML file has a different schema type, then the flag "do not analyze the coordinate system" is set. Tools for maintaining a list of correspondence of coordinate systems to their geodetic parameters have been developed. To maintain the correspondence list, new buttons have been added in the dialog: "Reading and displaying coordinate systems from the correspondence file", "Saving the correspondence file", "Reading coordinate systems from XML files", "Add line into the table the Source data coordinate systems", "Delete line from the table the Source data coordinate systems", "Clear the table the Source data coordinate systems". The modes of the "Cadastral Documents" module use the preset keys of objects and their semantics. To control the presence of the necessary objects and semantics in the classifier of the cadastral map, the control algorithm has been updated. The check of the name of the classifier has been removed and a check has been added for the presence in the classifier of the necessary keys of cadastral objects and semantics. The list of used object keys and semantics is included in the documentation. Output of a pop-up message for "bad" classifiers has been implemented. The mode "Correction of registry errors" has been improved in terms of generating an electronic XML document for buildings. The function of reading information about the scale of a graphic file inserted into a report has been fixed. In the dialog of mode "Semantics of the object of cadastral works", the tables the "List of documents", "Geodesic base" and "Information about the coordinate system referenced by the features" have been deleted, since the specified information is stored in the Database of cadastral works. The mode "Base of cadastral works" has been improved. In the absence of contracts in the database of cadastral works, the database file was not updated from version 2.0 and below to the current version. In the "Land Survey plan" mode, it is possible to add more than one file into the tables "Graphic files that contain acts of harmonization of the location of the boundaries of land" and "Graphics file (files) containing a drawing of plots". Button "Add document from database into list" has been restored. With several selected objects on the map, information on only one object got into the data tree in the "Land Survey plan" dialog and during the formation of the XML document. The recording into the XML file of the SpecifyParcel element has been corrected, the recording of the SpecifyRelatedParcel and SpecifyParcelApproximal sections has been added. The "Forest declaration" mode has been improved, a recording has been added into Appendix 4 and 5 of information about objects that fall into Appendix 1 (draft).

    In connection with the transition of the Federal Information Address System (FIAS) to a new format for storing information about addresses - the State Address Register (SAR), the address database of the GIS "Panorama" hosted on www.gisserver.info has been updated. The new database contains more than 100,000,000 address points, including land plots, parking lots and apartments. Changes have been made to the address selection dialog, which is used when editing the semantics of objects of cadastral works in the geodesy editor and forming reports on the technical plan of the building. SAR support provides the user with the ability to select an address in municipal and administrative-territorial divisions.

    The task "Map Editor" has been improved. In the mode of editing object points, the functionality of the auxiliary "Q" mode has been extended. When editing points of an areal object, pressing the "Q" key disables the sign of a rectangle or, if this sign is absent, leads the object to a rectangular shape (straightens corners). In the mode of points editing, the function of quick recording of the edited object by pressing the "hot" key "S" has been added. In the dialog for selecting the created object for the "Create object" mode, support for the class hierarchy has been added, presented as a tree of layers/classes. The selection of objects is carried out taking into account localizations, layers and classes. The list of selected objects is presented in the form of a table that contains information about the localization, code, key, name and class of objects. The search by all objects of the classifier has been improved with the ability to filter the table by individual localizations. In the search mode by selected objects, all used localizations are set and, when moving in the table of objects, the class is indicated in the tree of layers/classes.

"Enhance raster quality" mode has been added designed for processing 24-bit rasters. for processing 24-bit rasters. This mode increases the clarity of images of rasters obtained by scanning cartographic materials. To do this, the color values of the original image are smoothed by method of bicubic interpolation over 16 neighboring pixels of the original raster.

    Module "Geodesy editor" has been improved. In the "Object intersection calculation", "View object intersection" and "Object intersection control" modes, processing of objects with complex geometry - multipolygons has been implemented. The program analyzes intersections with all external and internal contours. The mode "Decorating a parcel with border lines" has been adapted for working with a group of selected objects. The "Fill in report by object metric" mode has been supplemented with the ability to interrupt the process when stream processing several selected objects into one file. In the "Generate a summary GPS measurement protocol" mode, a call blocking is added if there are no selected source objects.

    The module "Cadastral documents" has been improved. The address database was updated with current information from FIAS. In the "FIAS Address" dialog, support for addresses of administrative and municipal division has been added. In the "Reading the cadastral plan of the territory and updating the map" mode, the drawing of conditional parts of plots and capital construction objects has been added, if there is no spatial component of parts in the extract according to the extract_about_property_land scheme. The coordinates of the conditional part correspond to the center of the property. To implement this feature, a new object "Conditional part of a land plot" has been added into the survey classifier. Reading of the special_notes element has been added when reading information about uniform land tenure.
    The read value is written into the semantics of the land plot "Special marks". There is implemented a reading of information about the person in favor of which the restriction of rights and encumbrance of the property object is established from the right_holders element. The right_holders element is read if there is no restrict_parties element. The received information is recorded into the composite semantics "Content of encumbrances".
    Into the "Base of cadastral works" mode, the "Documents" tab has been added to the main form, which displays a list of documents used when performing cadastral works. In the form of editing the contract for cadastral works, the "Documents" tab has been added, in which you can specify the documents related to this contract. In the modes "Map (plan) of the land management object", "Land survey plan", "Technical plan", "Formation of a map-plan of the territory", "Certificate of inspection of the property" and "Correction of registry errors", elements for obtaining documents from the "Base of cadastral works" have been added. In the "Semantics of the object of cadastral works" dialog, unnecessary and obsolete elements have been removed, including information about documents and geodetic points used in the performance of cadastral works. The specified information is maintained in the "Base of cadastral works" and can be quickly inserted into any of the dialogs for the formation of cadastral documents. In the dialog "Description of the location of the boundaries", the formation of a document on the location of the boundaries of settlements and territorial zones is implemented in accordance with the requirements of Order P/0292 dated July 26, 2022, which entered into force on March 1, 2023. Report templates have been updated and the order of inserting images into the report was corrected. Insertion is optional at the request of the user. The mode "Formation of a map-plan of the territory" has been updated. The map folder is used by default for placing the XML document. When generating the XML file of the technical plan of the building, the recording of the element "Area - Area in square meters" was corrected in the absence of the value of the AREADOC semantic. There is corrected a saving into the XML file and object semantics of information about the material of the outer walls and the type of permitted use of the building. When performing cadastral work to clarify the characteristics of a real estate object, the option "Do not include coordinates" has been added on the "Object characteristics" page. In this case, for buildings and constructions registered in the cadastre, information about the spatial component is not recorded into the XML file. In the "Correction of registry errors" mode, methods have been added that ensure the insertion of diagrams and drawings into the report, and rounding the area has been corrected.

    The new mode of editing the vector data has been added. Using this mode, the user can specify the coordinates of objects of interest to him on the ground (for example, cadastral plots, objects of power grids or gas economy). As data for editing, the user can select any open layer available for editing. The user can choose the external view of an object and a set of its characteristics from a standard library of conventional symbols (classifier) depending on the used subject (topographic, navigation, agricultural or forestry maps, etc.). When working with the classifier,the user can execute selection by a set of conditions: object type (for example, point or area) and object layer (for example, "Vegetation" or "Road network"). Information received from the built-in navigation device can serve as a source of information about the position of a terrain object. For convenience of using, a cancellation of last operation on map editing has been provided.
    Direct and inverse geodetic tasks for execution of calculations on the terrain map have been implemented. Using these modes, the user can determine the coordinates of an object by a set of computational properties (starting point, distance, and azimuth). The selection of the starting point is carried out in an interactive form, it is supported the entering the coordinates from the keyboard in meters, in the current projection of the map. Calculation results can be displayed on a map or presented in numerical form. The received coordinates can be copied to the device's clipboard and used for transmission or further processing.

  • 18.05.2023 GIS WebService SE supports the new standard OGC 14-065r2 Web Processing Service version 2.0.2 (OGC WPS)
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebService SE version 15.3.0 has been developed.The new version adds support for a new standard - OGC 14-065r2 Web Processing Service version 2.0.2 (OGC WPS). In many cases, geospatial or location data, including data from sensors, data from drones, and other data, must be processed before the information can be effectively used. In most cases process of preliminary data processing can take a long time and require significant resources from the server. This standard provides an the interface for execution of simple and difficult computing methods of processing of the information. The OGC WPS standard supports both immediate processing of operations that require little time for execution, as well as asynchronous processing for more complex and time-consuming tasks. OGC WPS standard defines the general model of process and provides a description of the processing functions and their parameters. It is intended for support of cataloging and detection of processes in the distributed environment. Using the model of the OGC WPS standard, the service allows you to receive/issue parameters, both by direct value and through links, for example, the results of previous operations or data from other services.
    For OGC WPS, all operations available in the standard are supported: GetCapabilities, DescribeProcess, Execute, GetStatus, GetResult, Dismiss. Based on OGC WPS, all asynchronous information processing methods already available in the service are standardized, such as: checking intersections between objects of different layers; construction of intersections between objects; updating the data cache; building visibility zones; building matrixes of heights; construction of thermal and thematic maps and others. Using the commands of the standard, you can run any other requests supported by the service in synchronous or asynchronous modes. Descriptions of requests and their parameters can be obtained from the OGC WPS specification - GetCapabilities/DescribeProcess requests, and from the OpenApi 3.0 specification - a universal interface for users (clients) to interact with services (servers).
    GIS WebService SE supports all international standards (OGC WFS, WFS-T, WMS, WMTS, WCS, WPS), which are used to transfer and display spatial data. The program implements the ability to issue tiles according to 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.

  • 17.05.2023 Training video on creating a map-plan of territory has been prepared
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a video lesson on using the "Formation of a map-plan of the territory" mode. Dialog is intended for creation of the electronic document "a territory Map-plan" in which reproduces necessary for placing into EGRN an information about land plots located within the boundaries of the territory where complex cadastral works are performed, as well as information about the location of buildings, structures, objects under construction on such land plots.
    The initial initialization of the dialog content is performed by information from the digital cadastral map and from the database of cadastral works. The cadastral map for the formation of a map-plan of the territory should be prepared in accordance with the recommendations.
    The map should be created with use of survey.v5 or survey.v6 classifiers. To draw objects in respect of which cadastral works are performed, it is necessary to use the objects of the "Cadastral plan of the territory" layer. An exception is the point object "Contour of the construction, OHS off-scale round" (key P_REALTYROUND), used for drawing point objects of real estate, which is located in the "Technical plan" layer.
    The territory of execution of complex cadastral works should be digitized by the line of borders including all objects of cadastral works. An object within which complex cadastral works are performed can be of two types - "Cadastral block" (key S_BLOK) or "Boundary of complex cadastral works" (key S_CADASTRE). For an object of the first type, the semantics "Cadastral number" (key KADNUM) must be filled in, for an object of the second type - the repeating semantics "Cadastral number of the block" (key KADNUM_K).

  • 15.05.2023 GIS Constructor provides tools for visualisation of spatial data on the basis of various graphic libraries
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS Constructor for Qt Designer SE version 14.3.0 has been developed. In the new version the universal interface of interaction with graphic libraries has been implemented, mechanisms of work of the program in the conditions of the limited system resources have been improved. The list of supported geoportals has been expanded, the display of sea maps has been improved, and new diagnostic capabilities of working the GIS applications have been added.
    A programming interface has been developed that allows the developer to use a graphics library for visualization based on his needs. The central element of most GIS applications is the display of spatial data. In this case, the image of a fragment of a digital map is formed using the functions of drawing graphic primitives (lines, polygons, points, and others) by means of a certain graphic library (Qt, GTK, wxWidgets, Xlib, and others). Often the choice of such a library is already determined at the design stage of the application and is a permanent part of the architecture. GIS Constructor provides software tools for implementing data visualization in an application with any selected graphic framework. This is achieved by separating the implementation of displaying graphic primitives into a separate library, which is accessed by the GIS core during the drawing process. As a result, the developer can use either a ready-made set of drawing functions, or implement them independently based on the graphics framework of interest to him. This makes GIS Constructor a universal tool for visualizing spatial data. The installation of the program includes examples of the implementation of drawing graphic primitives based on the Qt and Xlib libraries.
    The functioning of the GIS application has been improved with a limited amount of available RAM. The need for the program to work in conditions of a small amount of system resources becomes relevant when using the embedded devices, portable laptops, specialized tablets and other similar devices. If there is a lack of memory, the GIS core automatically activates a buffer with a limited amount of memory and performs all operations with data using only this buffer. As a result, memory consumption by the GIS application is drastically reduced. The new version adds the ability to explicitly set a limit on the amount of memory used by the application for opening the data, when it is reached, this mode will be activated forcibly.
    The ability to display only error messages in the diagnostic protocol has been added. This allows you to effectively determine the cause of abnormal behavior of a program that performs a large number of operations with spatial data. In this case, limiting the output by error messages reduces the volume of the resulting protocol and makes it convenient for further analysis.
    The task of connecting geoportals has been improved. Into the list of geoportals the geoportal of Krasnodar territory has been added containing the layers: Administrative territorial division, Contours of fields of agricultural land, Fishing grounds, Vine plantations
    Display of sea maps according to the S52 standard has been improved. There is clarified the implementation of procedures for forming depth values based on attribute values for underwater obstacles, taking into account the underlying objects, a requesting the code of the displayed symbol and the display flag taking into account the depth of the obstacle and requesting the code of an isolated underwater hazard with a depth less than the safety contour.
    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. The developer can release GIS applications for a set of operating systems by simple assembly with minimal changes to the program source code.

  • 08.05.2023 A training video has been prepared on export of data to pyramids of Mbtiles tiles
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a video lesson on using mode the Pyramids of Mbtiles tiles. The task is designed to create a complete set of image fragments of spatial data of given sizes according to the selected scale series in the Mbtiles format. This format is a SQLite database that stores images in png, jpg, png8 formats.
    Pyramids of tiles can be created based on a combination of digital vector maps, space and aerial photography, matrixes of heights, data from geoportals and other data.
    The purpose of forming a set of rasters (tiles) is to accelerate the display in WEB and mobile applications of spatial data containing a large number of objects or occupying large amounts of data. Display acceleration is achieved by the method of image caching - the display of the vector map area is replaced by the display of the area of a pre-built raster, which is cached on the client using a WEB browser.
    Using the Mbtiles format will allow offline access to pre-prepared spatial data.
    You can get acquainted with the training materials in the "Video lessons" section.

  • 05.05.2023 "Workstation of cadastral engineer" provides implementation of complex cadastral works
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of cadastral engineer" version 14.5.6 has been developed. In the new version the module "Cadastral documents" has been improved, which supports formation of reporting documents by results of complex cadastral works in accordance with the Federal Law of July 24, 2007 N 221-FZ (as amended on December 19, 2022) "On Cadastral Activities". To support complex cadastral work, a new mode "Formation of a map-plan of the territory" has been developed. The mode generates an XML document provided to the Unified State Register of Real Estate in electronic form, approved by the order of Rosreestr dated March 16, 2017 N P/115. The initial information for the formation of a map-plan of the territory is taken from the digital cadastral map and from the database of cadastral works.
    Complex cadastral workы is carried out simultaneously in relation to all land plots, buildings, constructions located on the territory of one cadastral quarter or the territories of several adjacent cadastral quarters (with the exception of linear objects), as well as objects of construction in progress, information about which is contained in the Unified State Register of Real Estate. To start the "Formation of a map-plan of the territory" mode, it is necessary to select a cadastral quarter or other object on the cadastral map that limits the territory of work. To prepare a cadastral map containing the results of complex cadastral works, the survey.v6 digital classifier has been refined. The necessary objects are arranged in the form of a separate layer CADASTRAL PLAN OF THE TERRITORY.
    The program analyzes the map, reads information about all objects of complex cadastral works and displays information in a dialog for viewing and editing. The information of the general sections of the map-plan of the territory is stored in the tables of the cadastral database of the SQLite format and is linked to the cadastral map object that limits the territory of cadastral work. When the program is restarted, the entered values are automatically read and displayed in the dialog elements. The dialog "Base of cadastral works" is supplemented with tools of maintaining information about the points of the geodetic base used in the preparation of cadastral documents. Information of cadastral objects is stored in the semantics of land plots and real estate objects located within the territory of complex cadastral works.
    The mode "Formation of Real estate survey report" has been improved. Formation of electronic XML document of the certificate of inspection by XML scheme InspectionAct_v03.xsd has been implemented. The mode supports the creation of XML files for the new and old scheme. The dialog "Data input for the document" has been improved, the list of document details has been expanded. The mode "Reading the cadastral plan of the territory and updating the map" has been improved, processing of several initial XML files in a streaming mode has been accelerated and automatic updating the image of an updated map was executed. For mapping conditional cadastral objects that do not have a spatial component, the analysis of information about the CsID coordinate system is disabled, since such information is not available.
    In the "Technical plan" dialog, the order of inserting "Floor plan (parts of the floor)" graphic files into Word has been corrected. In dialog "Land survey plan version 6", the formation of AppliedFilePDF element for the "Document on the category of land" and for the "Document on permitted use" has been corrected. Into the task "Cadastral documents" into the mode "Forest declaration formation" the button "Formation of the text report" based on .DOCX templates has been added. The form of the forest declaration, the procedure for filling and submitting it, the requirements for the format of the forest declaration in electronic form were approved by order of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology of the Russian Federation dated April 29, 2021 N 303. The forest declaration reflects the following information: about the person who filed the forest declaration; on a lease agreement for a forest plot or other document in accordance with which the use of forests is carried out; about the location of the forest area; on the volume of forest use; on the types of use of forests. Input of information for filling the form of the forest declaration is performed by selecting values from a directory and from semantic characteristics of selected objects. Reference information is stored in SQLite database tables.
    In the module "Geodesy editor", in dialog "Fill in report by object metric" the possibility has been added for interruption of process of stream processing of selected objects when inserting data into several files. There is added a formatting of strings inserted into Excel with leading and trailing spaces. A space at the beginning of elements the "name of a piece", "length of a piece", "DeltaX", "DeltaY" is inserted for elimination of Excel autoformatting. Otherwise, it performs date substitutions for records like "5-4" in "Apr 5", for "3.12" in "Dec 3", and others.
    The task of connecting geoportals has been improved. Into the list of geoportals the geoportal of Krasnodar territory has been added containing the layers: Administrative territorial division, Contours of fields of agricultural land, Fishing grounds, Vine plantations.
    The new version of the program is available on the website in the Download section.

  • 04.05.2023 Map of the Principality of Andorra on the geoportal "Bank of spatial data" has been updated

  • 03.05.2023 "Workstation of urban planner" generates a permission to put the object into operation in accordance with the requirements of the order of the Ministry of Construction of the Russian Federation dated 06/03/2022 No. 446/pr
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of urban-planner" version 14.5.6 has been developed. The program implemented filling out the document "Permission to put object into operation" according to the requirements of the order of the Ministry of building and housing and communal services of the Russian Federation dated 06/03/2022 № 446/pr "On approval of the form of a building permit and permission to put the facility into operation". The document is formed for objects of capital construction according to the information stored in the database.
    The new form of permission to put an object into operation includes 7 sections: details of the permission to put an object into operation, information about the developer, information about the capital construction object, information about the land plot, information about the building permit on the basis of which the construction was carried out, reconstruction of capital construction object, actual indicators of the capital construction object and information about the technical plan, actual indicators of the linear object and information about the technical plan. For a new form of permission to put an object into operation, additional attributes for capital construction objects have been added to the urban planning database, the attributive information of the permission to put an object into operation has been loaded into electronic map objects.
    To generate a permission to put an object into operation, you must specify the object of real estate and fill in the document attributes located on the tabs of the form. Attribute information of the document is filled in the new dialog "Permission to put the object into operation", which is called from the register of accounting objects or by clicking the "Reports formation" button located on the main panel of the Complex. The dialog tabs correspond to the sections of the new form of the document. Many attributes are filled in automatically in accordance with the building permit, on the basis of which the construction (reconstruction) of the capital construction object was carried out. After filling in the attributive information, you can generate a document in the office suite. Completely blank sections of the form are not included into the document.
    The form of the document is formed on the basis of prepared templates of the dot format. Templates contain a descriptive part and named markers that tell the program where to insert data. Procedure of document formation is customizable. The user can change a template according to various regional and departmental requirements. There is a relationship between the attributes of the permission to put the object into operation and the markers in the template, which is customized in the directory "List of attributes for type of accounting object". To exchange data with an electronic map in the same directory, each attribute can be assigned any semantic characteristic of the object according to the survey classifier.
    Saving of the created document "Permission to put object into operation" in urban-planning database has been implemented.
    The generated permission to put the object into operation can be saved on disk in doc, docx, pdf formats. If necessary, an electronic copy of the document is loaded into the file storage of the database of the Complex. In this case, the document file is attached to the list of files of the capital construction object.
    By means of the "Update of semantics on the map" mode, it is possible to load the attributive information of permission to put the object into operation into the electronic map's object. A necessary condition for updating semantics is the existence of a connection between a record in the database and an object on the map. The update procedure can work both with one or several records, and with the entire list of capital construction objects.
    The new version of the program is available for download in the Download section.

  • 01.05.2023 In GIS Panorama the tools of search of data and calculations by attributes of objects have been improved
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" version 14.5.6 has been developed. In the new version the tools have been added for calculations by semantics of objects, controlling of display and search of various categories of terrain objects, import and export of data, the tools of the task "Classifier Editor" have been expanded, the list of geoportals is added, the tasks of "Check of vector map quality" and "Correction of objects metrics" are improved, in the block of geodetic and cadastral tasks the mode "Formation of map-plan of the territory" has been implemented, the modes "Base of cadastral works", "Technical plan", "Formation of forest declaration" and others have been updated.
    The list of operations for semantics of the "Numerical formula" type and for the mode "Calculations on semantics of selected objects" in the Map Editor task has been expanded. Operation "SUM" has been added to sum the values of the object's repeatable semantics. For example, if semantics with the code "345" are numeric and repeatable (an object can have several semantics with the code "345" with different values) and you need to get the sum of all values, then the expression should be "SUM(#345)" in the formula. For semantics of the "Symbol formulas" type and for the "Formation semantics" mode in the Map Editor task, support for repeatable semantics has been added. The values of the repeated semantics are written to the resulting string separated by commas.
    The task "Map Legend" has been improved. On the "Maps" tab, a hierarchy of classes in the form of a multilevel tree has been added in the object tree of the classifier. For the selected class, the ability to enable/disable the visibility of objects, to select objects on the map are available. For objects that are part of the tree, but not on the map, the color of the visibility state icons has been updated - "gray". On the "Maps" tab, the "Enable/Disable graphic objects" mode has been added, which allows you to set graphical objects in the selection conditions.
    To increase the security of data hosted on the GIS Server, a ban on editing the map passport has been added if the user does not have data administration rights or if the ban on displaying coordinate system parameters on the client is enabled.
    Import of navigation data from the Polish format (MP) has been improved. Support of multilines and multipolygons has been added. The map was unloaded by means of visibility scales limitation, taking into account the "Levels" and "EndLevel" tags. When the map is increased, the image contains a small terrain area of highly detailed. When the map is decreased, a large area with less detail. This method of the map sparseness allows you to increase the readability of the map and speed up the display of the map. Importing a map from the polish format is done through the menu: File - Import navigation from ... - GPS/Polish format (MP).
    A new script has been added into the Tools - Run Applications menu in the Import/Export Data group to automate saving the images of vector maps located in a selected folder in TIF format.
    Module "Geodesy editor" has been improved. In dialog "Fill in the report by object metric" the possibility has been added for interruption of process of stream processing of selected objects when inserting data into several files. There is added a formatting of strings inserted into Excel with leading and trailing spaces. A space at the beginning of elements the "name of a piece", "length of a piece", "DeltaX", "DeltaY" is inserted for elimination of Excel autoformatting. Otherwise, it performs date substitutions for records like "5-4" in "Apr 5", for "3.12" in "Dec 3", and others.
    The module "Cadastral documents" has been improved. A new mode "Formation of a map-plan of the territory" has been developed, intended for the formation of an XML-document provided to the Unified State Register of Real Estate in the course of complex cadastral work. The form of the document, the procedure for filling and submitting it, the requirements for the format in electronic form are approved by order of the Federal Register of March 16, 2017 N P/115. The initial information for the formation of a map-plan of the territory is taken from the digital cadastral map and the database of cadastral works. To prepare a cadastral map containing the necessary objects, the survey.v6 digital classifier was refined. The information necessary to form an electronic XML document is displayed in the dialog elements for viewing and editing. The information of the general sections of the map-plan of the territory is stored in the tables of the cadastral database of the SQLite format and is linked to the cadastral map object that limits the territory of cadastral work. When the program is restarted, the entered values are automatically read and displayed in the dialog elements. Information of cadastral objects is stored in the semantics of cadastral objects - land plots and real estate objects located within the territory of complex cadastral works. The border of territory of complex cadastral works can correspond to one or several cadastral quarters.
    The dialog "Base of cadastral works" has been improved, the maintenance of information about the points of the geodetic base used in the preparation of cadastral documents has been added. The mode "Formation of Real estate survey report" has been improved. Formation of electronic XML document of the certificate of inspection by XML scheme InspectionAct_v03.xsd has been implemented. The mode supports the creation of XML files for the new and old scheme. The dialog "Data input for the document" has been improved, the list of document details has been expanded.

Into the task "Cadastral documents" into the mode "Formation of forest declaration" the button "Formation of the text report" based on .DOCX templates has been added. The form of the forest declaration, the procedure for filling and submitting it, the requirements for the format of the forest declaration in electronic form were approved by order of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology of the Russian Federation dated April 29, 2021 N 303. The forest declaration reflects the following information: about the person who filed the forest declaration; on a lease agreement for a forest plot or other document in accordance with which the use of forests is carried out; about the location of the forest area; on the volume of forest use; on the types of use of forests. Input of information for filling the form of the forest declaration is performed by selecting values from a directory and from semantic characteristics of selected objects. Reference information is stored in SQLite database tables.
    The task of connecting geoportals has been improved. The geoportal of the Krasnodar Territory, containing the layers: Administrative territorial division, Contours of fields of agricultural land, Fishing grounds, Vine plantations, has been added to the list of geoportals.
    The task "Classifier editor" has been improved. For the obsolete view of objects with "Mixed" type, the ability to select the parameters of a conventional symbol of the "Vector symbol" view has been added. The view of objects "Mixed" is obsolete and cannot be edited, but it can be supplemented with the "Vector symbol" parameters or completely replaced by it. When updating classifiers, it is recommended to recode the titles of characteristics from the type "Mixed" onto "Vector". For editing semantics of the "Numeric formula" or "Symbol formula" type, the following modes have been updated: adding a formula to the list of classifier formulas, deleting a formula from the list if it is not assigned to semantics, editing existing formulas. The "List of formulas" of the library has been added to the "Libraries" tab. For each type of object described in the library, a list of semantics on which this type depends is added. On the "Objects" tab, a new mode "Copying mark object" has been added, which allows you to create a new object by copying all its properties, but changing the code, symbolic code, key. The "Creating new object" mode has been changed. A new object is created based on the first object available for selection with a new, automatically generated name, code, key and alias.
    Check of vector map has been improved. Correctness of execution of checking a direction of digitization of areal objects depends on correctness of signs of an external/internal contour.
    If the Digitization direction is set for the object as "Object on the right", then the outer contour is digitized clockwise, the inner one - counterclockwise. If the digitization direction is set for the object as "Object on the left", then the outer contour is digitized counterclockwise, the inner one - clockwise. A simple area object must have one outer contour and may have one or more inner contours. A multipolygon must have one or more outer contours and may have one or more inner contours. In both cases, the first contour of the object must be outer. The order of the contours is checked when the "Control of self-crossings and location of subjects" mode is executed. It is more efficient to control and correct the direction of digitization after checking the location of subobjects. Therefore, the check of the digitization direction has been moved from the "Metrics" group to the "Control of self-crossings and location of subjects", which is included into the "Topology" group. At execution of this type of control in the "Edit" mode, a correction of errors location and direction of digitizing the contours is carried out.
    The task "Correction of object metrics" has been improved. The algorithm for splitting multi-objects into separate composite objects has been changed. In the "Translation of names" procedure, the ability to process dictionaries in UTF8 encoding has been added.

The user can combine a set of open maps, save them in vector PDF format and transfer the resulting file for viewing in original quality at any scale using standard operating system tools. Individual layers can be excluded from the export by means of displaying layers of a map with use of standard functions of MAPAPI interface. Thus, the data of vector maps is saved to a PDF file along with rasters and matrixes of heights loaded into them. Data export can be performed at an arbitrary scale and for an arbitrary map fragment. For example, the user can select a map fragment on a small scale, and output it to a file on a larger scale, and save the image not of the entire work region, but only of its fragment, limited by a rectangular area, a map object, or the size of the current window. The resulting file in vector PDF format preserves the quality of the map image when viewed at any scale, which allows it to be used, for example, when preparing reporting documents.
    New type of programmable signs has been added for displaying bar charts according to the semantics of objects with display in a legend of semantics values (in addition to a sign displaying values in percentage). The description of charts includes a list of codes of semantics corresponding to sectors of the chart. For each semantics the own parameters of displaying a sector are set. For all chart the maximum width and the maximum height of the chart are set. To the right of the diagram its legend is displayed. Texts of lines for signing of sectors are taken from semantics names, excepting repeating part of names. For example, if the semantics are called "Number of inhabitants under 20 years old", "Number of inhabitants from 20 to 40 years old", then the legend will contain the following lines: "up to 20 years old", "from 20 to 40 years old", and so on. The conventional symbol the "Bar chart" is shown in the data example on the map \Data\shape.
    A script has been added into the list of basic python scripts that calculates the distance from the selected object up to several selected objects with recording into the semantics of the calculated value. RAM distribution has been improved when processing large data sets (tens of gigabytes and more than a hundred million objects). The speed of searching and displaying data has been raised.
    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. The developer can release GIS applications for a set of operating systems by simple assembly with minimal changes to the program source code.

  • 06.04.2023 In GIS Panorama Mini the tools for integrating databases from various information systems with spatial data have been improved
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS Panorama Mini version 14.5.5 has been developed. In the new version the possibility of requesting the information from databases of external information systems via web protocols has been implemented. Connection of bases of spatial data was simplified. Import and export of DXF format and import of DGN format has been improved. The tools for managing the display of sea maps of the S52 standard have been implemented, taking into account the characteristics of a vessel with a navigation system, the possibilities of using TrueType fonts as the signs for filling polygons or designing linear objects have been expanded. The "Classifier editor" task, which controls the logical structure and classification system of vector map data, has been completely updated. Tools for displaying rasters and matrixes with compression, formations of file PostScript CMYK have been refined. Display of graphics by adding the ability to directly open graphic files has been accelerated.
    The possibility of requesting information from databases of external information systems via web-protocols has been implemented. Connection to external information systems ("1С: Enterprise" and others) allows to use the data from these systems as the additional attributive information for displayed territory. For example, the information base "1C: Enterprise" contains information on accounting objects - land plots and buildings, their lease payments, lease terms, types of permitted use and other indicators that can be displayed in the GIS in logical connection with vector map objects and/or spatial database.
    Access to external information systems is carried out using the HTTP protocol. The response from the system is a data set in XML format, which is provided to the GIS user in the form of a table in a separate dialog box.
    The dialog provides various interactive modes of operation: search on the map for an object corresponding to the current record, and vice versa - search for a record in the table for the current map object; setting filters for displaying data in the table with the ability to select objects on the map that meet the filter conditions; filtering records in the table by selected map objects; viewing the selected table record in a separate dialog box; export of the table to *.csv file and others.
    Link of records of a data set from an external source with map objects is carried out according to the value of the key field and the predefined semantics of the object, which is specified in the settings. For example, information on real estate objects in the 1C database can be associated with map objects by cadastral number.
    A map of land plots and buildings and the configuration of the "1C:Enterprise" information base containing information on these land plots and buildings have been added into the demo data included in the GIS installation. In the configuration of information base a publication has been prepared using the OData protocol for directories and contains an example of program formation of the XML-response to a request to an HTTP service.
    When opening in one session the different maps (DBM-projects) from one spatial database the repeated requests for user authorization are excluded. The diagnostic protocol of connection to a spatial database for the analysis of errors in the data has been refined.
    In the main menu "View" the item "Parameters for displaying nautical maps of the S52 standard" has been added, taking into account the features of the vessel on which the navigation system is installed. When this menu item is selected, a dialog is called up in which you can change the parameters for displaying sea maps: safe depth, safety contour, shoal contour, depth contour, depth gradation, shallow filling, isolated dangers in shallow water, language of displayed titles.
    When importing S57 sea maps, support has been added for datasets with sea map updates (ER profile), which are located in files with extensions 001, 002, 003, and so on.
    Files of updatings should take place together with an initial data set with expansion 000 in one folder or according to structure of folders under standards IHO S57/S63. The update files must be placed together with the source data set with extension 000 in the same folder or in accordance with the structure of folders according to the IHO S57/S63 standards. The names of the source dataset and update files must match.
    In the tasks of export and import of data in the DXF format, a saving and reading of colors of conventional symbols of objects in RGB format has been implemented. The RGB color model covers a wider range of colors and provides the highest color rendering compared to the previously used AutoCAD indexed color palette. Into dialog "Export a map to DXF file" the possibility has been added for customizing a processing of all open maps at enabling the option "Process all maps" that allows you automatically to export the data of each map to a separate DXF file.
    There is added a recalculation of coordinates and sizes of characters from storage units specified in DXF: inches, feet, miles, millimeters, centimeters, meters, and so on. The formation of graphic primitives from the parameters of conventional symbols specified in DXF has been improved, which allows you to reproduce the view of the original drawing without setting the symbols.
    In dialog "Import files from DXF format" the mode "Create a set of maps" has been added which is intended for automatic processing a large number of selected data and creating a separate user map for each DXF file. As a result of the task execution, the list of the generated maps is saved in project MPT.
    In the task "Import of data in DGN format" the possibility has been implemented for creating objects which are described in the source file as a complex chain. As a result, the elements of each chain are transformed into a single object. The dialog interface has been updated to automatically process a lot of selected data and create a separate user map for each DGN file.
    A new version of the "Classifier Editor" task has been developed. In the "General data" tab, information about the composition of the classifier is supplemented by the number of connected libraries with user symbols. There is added the "Translation" tool for translating the names of layers, objects and semantics of the classifier into other languages. Working with color palettes of the classifier is placed on a separate tab "Palette". There is a convenient opportunity to simultaneously view and work with the colors of RGB and CMYK palettes. In the "Objects" tab there are added the tools of search for objects by name, code, symbolical code, a key and other properties through the "Objects Content". In the "Libraries" tab in the tree of user functions for displaying objects, next to the name of the function, the number of types of objects in which it is used has been added. In the "Fonts" tab, the display of the full set of characters of the selected font has been added.
    Possibility of direct opening of graphic files has been implemented without the dialog for converting to RSW through the File-Open menu, for quick access to various terrain images. When graphic files are opened for the first time, a service RSW file is automatically created without copying the image and a TAF file with a pyramid of thumbnails, if they were not in the source file. To work with large images, it is recommended to open files with the image converted to RSW format via menu the File - Import rasters or matrix. This will speed up the display of graphics, allow you to process a large number of files of arbitrary sizes with a limited memory area, and speed up the conversion of image projections on the fly.
    Display of rasters with smoothing has been added. At increase in the image of a raster more than in 2 times from the initial size in pixels a smoothing is carried out. The new display algorithm allows you to get rid of the "pixelation" effect when you increase the rasters. Management of smoothing is carried out via the main menu: View - Enlarged raster with smoothing.
    Formation of file PostScript CMYK file has been refined: accounting for the colors of the palettes of all open maps has been added, processing of gradient fills has been added. PostScript files are created in the map printing dialog, which is called via the main menu: File - Print. To print the map in PostScript, you must select a PostScript-compatible printing device and output type: PostScript RGB or PostScript CMYK.
    The task of connecting geoportals has been improved. For the geoportal of Rosreestr "Land plots", the range of data display scales has been expanded to 1:1 - 1:50 000. To be able to view an overview view, data from larger scales with image compression is requested.
    The algorithm of compression of the data of a matrix of heights has been improved. Functions of optimisation of matrix of heights have been refined: compression of 16-bit data has been added. This algorithm is used when loading a matrix of heights in the following modes: File - Import of rasters or matrix from ... - Matrix of heights (SRTM, GeoTIFF, IMG), GDAL matrix (IMG, DEM ...). To compress previously loaded 16-bit matrixes, select the matrix in the data list and select the "Optimize" item in the context menu (select the "Optimize compressed matrix" mode in the dialog). Usually compressed matrix occupies volume in 5-7 times less than initial volume. Reduction of volume and application of the mechanism of overview images repeatedly accelerates matrix visualisation.
    The task "Adding data from a directory into the document" has been improved. There is added the ability to import matrixes of heights or images from TIFF(GeoTIFF), IMG, KMZ files contained in the selected folder. When the element "Import heights from TIFF, IMG files" is enabled on the form, the control of the program is transferred to the dialog "Import matrixes from SRTM, GeoTIFF formats".
    The digital classifier forestry.v2.rsc, intended for the state inventory of forests, planning economic activities, organizing the protection of forests from fires and forest violations, and other tasks in the field of forestry, has been improved. Changes have been made to generate the XML file of the forest declaration, approved by order of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology of the Russian Federation dated April 29, 2021 N 303. In the classifier are added new semantics for object a forest plot, used at filling of appendices to the wood declaration.
    New semantics have been added into the classifier for the object a forest plot, used when filling out applications to the forest declaration.
    The classifier for maintaining a unified digital cartographic basis (EEKO) for federal, regional, municipal purposes map5000m.rsc has been improved.

  • 05.04.2023 "Workstation of urban planner" forms a building permit in accordance with the requirements of the order of the Ministry of Construction of the Russian Federation No. 446/pr
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of urban planner" version 14.5.5 has been developed. The new version implements the filling of the document "Building permit" in accordance with the requirements of the order of the Ministry of Construction and Housing and Communal Services of the Russian Federation dated 03.06.2022 No. 446/pr "On approval of the form of a building permit and permission to put an object into operation." The document is generated for capital construction objects according to the information stored in the database.
    The new form of a building permit includes 8 sections: details of a building permit, information about the developer, information about the capital construction object, information about the land plot, information about project documentation, a typical architectural solution, information about the results of the examination of project documentation and state environmental impact assessment , design characteristics of a capital construction facility, design characteristics of a linear object. For the new form of a building permit, additional attributes for capital construction objects have been added to the urban planning database, and the attributive information of a building permit has been loaded into electronic map objects.
    Saving the created document "Building permit" in the urban planning database has been implemented. To store information about the building permit in the database, standard document attributes are used, and the directory "Subject of the Russian Federation (Region, Republic)" has been added. The document's attributive information is filled in the new dialog "Building permit", which is called from the register of accounting objects or by clicking the "Reporting" button located on the main panel of the complex. The dialog tabs correspond to the sections of the new document form. After filling in the attributive information, you can generate a document in the office suite. Completely blank sections of the form are not included in the document.
    The form of the document is formed on the basis of prepared templates of the dot format. Templates contain a descriptive part and named markers that tell the program where to insert data. The document generation procedure is customizable. The user can modify the template according to different regional and departmental requirements. Between attributes of the building permit and markers in a template there is set the interrelation which is customized in the directory the "List of attributes for type of accounting object". To exchange data with an electronic map in the same directory, each attribute can be assigned any semantic characteristic of the object according to the survey classifier.
    The generated building permit can be saved on disk in doc, docx, pdf formats. If necessary, an electronic copy of the document is loaded into the file storage of the complex's database. In this case, the document file is attached to the list of files of the capital construction object. By means of the "Update semantics on the map" mode, you can load the attributive information of a building permit into an electronic map object. A necessary condition for updating semantics is the existence of a connection between a record in the database and an object on the map. The update procedure can work both with one or several records, and with the entire list of capital construction objects.
    The new version of the program is available for download in the Download section.

  • 31.03.2023 In GIS "Panorama" the new applications have been developed and tools of area analysis have been supplemented
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" version 14.5.5 has been developed. In the new version, tools for working with the layer tree of vector map objects have been expanded, the list of operations for formula-type semantics has been expanded, modes have been added for processing multipolygons, multilines and multipoint objects. New tasks "Calculation of reserves of solid minerals", "Drawing of image on raster" have been implemented, controls for displaying sea charts of the S52 standard have been added, taking into account the features of a vessel with a navigation system, and a block of geodetic and cadastral tasks has been refined. The possibilities of using TrueType fonts as the signs for filling polygons or designing linear objects have been expanded.
    In the "Map Editor" task, the "Splitting a multiobject into simple objects" mode has been added. The mode is intended for splitting objects with complex metric (multipolygons, multilines, multipoint objects) into simple objects of appropriate localization. To process several objects, you must first select objects using the search and selection dialog, or using interactive modes: by area, by type of selected object, and others.
    The mode "Auto shapes - Form a quarter in the city" has been improved. The ability to process multipolygons has been added, the points of the template (cutter) have been matched with the points of new objects created as a result of processing. The list of operations for semantics of the "numerical formula" type and for the mode "Calculations on semantics of selected objects" in the Map editor task has been expanded. There is added the operation "%" - Modulo division. The operation can be used, for example, when you need to get the last few numbers of some identifier for different semantics and signature text: 73025679 % 10000 = 5679.
    The dialogs "Map contents" and "Map object search" have been improved. On the "Layers" tab, the ability to set the availability of classes in the conditions for displaying/searching for objects has been added. Classes are layers of lower level which together with base layers form a multilevel tree of layers. The division of objects into layers and classes makes it possible to describe the classification of objects of any hierarchy. For change of availability of a layer or a class it is necessary to press the left mouse button on the status icon of the chosen element or press the space bar. For the convenience of a finding the necessary layer/class, a search by partial coincidence of the name has been added. To move to the next or previous search result, you can use the "arrow up" and "arrow down" keys, as well as the corresponding modes next to the search line. The search line is activated using the key combination "Ctrl+F".
    Into the list of applications, the task "Drawing of image on raster" has been added, which is intended for updating a part of an image of a raster tablet. During the execution of the task, a raster is created by copying the source file with the subsequent updating the selected area with an image of another raster that is part of the document. The characteristics of the output raster with the updated image (geospatial binding, element size in meters on the ground) will fully correspond to the parameters of the source raster. The task is intended for use in the technology of updating raster tablets in spatial data collections. The task is run from the "Run Applications" dialog in the "Transforming rasters" group.
    In the main menu "View" the item "Parameters for displaying nautical maps of the S52 standard" has been added, taking into account the features of the vessel on which the navigation system is installed. When you select this menu item, a dialog opens in which you can change the parameters for displaying sea maps: safe depth, safety contour, shoal contour, depth contour, depth gradation, shoal filling, isolated hazards in shallow water, the language of the displayed titles. The made changes are saved in the main ini-file of the application and are automatically applied to a current session of the user.
    "Complex of 3D analysis" has been improved, designed to create surface models and solve problems of spatial analysis using the constructed models. The task "Calculation of reserves of solid minerals" has been added into the "Prognosis" panel. The task is designed to assess the reserves of minerals in a warehouse, or mineral resources in the development of deposits by open pit. The task calculates the volume and weight of a mineral within the selected area of calculation using the matrix of heights of the surface of the selected area of the warehouse or deposit on the ground.
    The type of mineral for calculation is specified in the "Minerals" list. There is a possibility of changing the volumetric weight of the selected mineral, and also possibility of addition and deleting of the list elements.
    The matrix of absolute heights determines the surface's configuration of the calculation area. The resulting volume is calculated within the specified calculation area using the surface's heights of the selected area and the heights of the bottom level of the mineral. The height of the lower level can be set in the corresponding field or using the "Select point on map" button. By default the value of a step is equal to the size of an element of elevations matrix of a surface of the selected area. If necessary, the calculation step can be changed. The calculation area is set using the buttons in the "Calculation area" group. As the calculation area, you can select: all region, a rectangular area, a contour of an object, and an arbitrary contour.
    "Classifier Editor" has been improved. In the "Fonts" tab, the display of the full set of characters of the selected font has been added. This feature allows you to evaluate the style and completeness of the font - the presence of digital characters, characters of Latin, Cyrillic and other language groups, as well as signs of symbolic fonts. The dialog for editing a vector symbol has been improved. When entering text elements of a symbol, the ability to select font characters that are not available on the keyboard has been added. Symbolic font characters are selected using the "Symbol from TrueType Font" dialog.

  • 10.03.2023 In professional vectorizer "Panorama-editor" the tools of creating and updating of topographical and special maps have been improved
    In KB "Panorama" the professional vectorizer "Panorama Editor" version 14.5.4 has been developed. In the new version, the "Classifier editor" task, which controls the logical structure and classification system of data of vector maps, has been updated. Editing tools of topographical and special maps have been improved. Tools of preparation of reports, processing of heights matrixes have been updated. The tools for forming a forest declaration in digital format (XML) and creating cadastral maps have been supplemented.
    In the program the modes of "Map Editor" task have been updated. The mode "Cut list", which is included into the "Cut and combine" group, has been improved. The new algorithm performs the cutting not only areal, but also linear objects (according to the list of reference objects). By default, response points are saved in the reference objects created at the intersection of the contours of the reference and edited (cut) objects. This method of processing allows you to save the topology of the metrics of cut objects with reference ones.
    The "Common points" mode on the "Topology" panel has been improved. For the convenience of analyzing the consistency of the contours of two arbitrary objects, common points, mismatched points and intersection points of the contours are displayed in different colors. A message is displayed on the screen with the numbers of objects and the number of common points and intersection points of the contours.
    The task "Creation of titles by objects semantics" has been improved, taking into account the processing of multipolygons selected on the map. When the control "Sign all objects included in the multipolygon" is disabled, the label is generated only for the main contour of the multipolygon in accordance with the dialog settings, otherwise all external contours of the multipolygon are signed.
    The task "View map control log" has been improved, designed to analyze the results of the execution of programs for control and editing of a vector map. To improve the convenience of editing the object metrics, the "Automatic selection" option has been added. When viewing inspection results and selecting an option on the map, the current message list object is automatically selected. This eliminates additional operator actions for selecting an object on the map and allows you to quickly switch to the Map Editor modes: Edit point, Delete object, Delete subobject and others.
    A new version of the "Classifier Editor" task has been developed. In the "General data" tab, information about the composition of the classifier is supplemented by the number of connected libraries with user symbols. There is added the "Translation" tool for translating the names of layers, objects and semantics of the classifier into other languages. Working with color palettes of the classifier is placed on a separate tab "Palette". There is a convenient opportunity to simultaneously view and work with the colors of RGB and CMYK palettes. Adjusting the arrangement of colors in the palette table allows you to arrange them with the greatest convenience for editing. For each color, the number of views of classifier's objects that use this color is shown. This makes it possible to quickly see unused colors in the palette. The new tool "Move color to unused space" allows to reduce the size of a palette if necessary. In the "Layers" tab, a mode has been added to view all layers together with their classes in the form of a tree. The "Classes" tool allows you to add and edit classes for the selected layer.
    In the "Objects" tab there are added the tools of search for objects by name, code, symbolical code, a key and other properties through the "Objects Content". In the "Scale" sub-tab a possibility of entering an arbitrary denominator of scale for the bottom and top ranges of visibility of object has been added. In the "Properties" subtab, the properties of the object "Design object" and "Polygon with a point" have been added. The tool "Creating and editing a series of objects" has been updated. Object properties: layer, class, visibility, additional object properties ("Properties" tab) - can be changed for all objects in the series at once or for one selected object. The "Clusters" tab has been added to describe the signs of clusters that display densely spaced point signs. The tab selects the views of objects related to each type of cluster, the cell sizes vertically and horizontally, the semantics code for specifying the current number of objects in the cluster, the view of cluster sign, the limiting percentage of increasing the size of the cluster sign and the limiting number of objects corresponding to the maximum size of the cluster sign.
    In the "Libraries" tab in the tree of user functions for displaying objects, next to the name of the function, the number of types of objects in which it is used has been added. When a function is selected in the object table, all views of objects that use this function are displayed in the right part of the tab.
    Also tools for conducting a tree of layers of objects have been updated. In each layer of top level the tree of objects classes can be created. Classes are layers of lower level which together with layers form a multilevel tree of layers. The division of objects into layers and classes makes it possible to describe the classification of objects of any hierarchy. Into the table of kinds of objects on all tabs, switching of objects view from printer to the screen and vice versa has been added. Thus, you can immediately evaluate the components of the parameters of the object view and their changes.
    In the "Automated generalization of topographic maps" task, the "Formation of passages in settlements" mode has been improved, which creates additional passages on the map in the intervals between neighboring quarters and sides of streets. Quality of formation of passages has been improved. The unacceptable intersections of the created passage with map objects have been eliminated. The shape of passages located along quarters of complex shape has been improved. When creating a passage, the proximity of the passage's points to its source objects (quarter, side of the street) is checked. If the passage points are closer than the junction threshold, then the creation of the passage is not performed.
    The "Report Designer" task has been improved. In a mode "Legend Formation" the possibility has been added for automatic addition of the created legend onto a map of the report in the form of a map insert or an insert of the image depending on the chosen format of the saved legend.
    The task "Export of matrix of heights into TIFF and KMZ file" has been improved. There is added a recording into the output file of the parameters of vertical coordinate system created in accordance with system of heights of an initial matrix. The name of the vertical coordinate system, units of measure of the heights containing in a file, and other parameters are stored in file GeoTIFF. For example: "Baltic 1977 height (EPSG:5705)", "MSL height (EPSG : 5714)", "WGS 84 (geographic 3D) (EPSG : 4327)".
    The task "Adding data from a directory into the document" has been improved. There is added the ability to import matrixes of heights or images from TIFF(GeoTIFF), IMG, KMZ files contained in the selected folder. When the element "Import heights from TIFF, IMG files" is enabled on the form, the control of the program is transferred to the dialog "Import matrixes from SRTM, GeoTIFF formats".
    The module "Cadastral documents" has been improved. New mode "Formation of forest declaration in electronic format (XML) with annexes" has been added. The form of the forest declaration, the procedure for filling out and submitting it, the requirements for the format of the forest declaration in electronic form were approved by the order of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology of the Russian Federation dated April 29, 2021 N 303. Formation of the forest declaration is carried out for selected objects of the map - forest areas. The map is created using the forestry.v2 digital classifier. Entering information for filling the forest declaration form is performed by selecting values from the reference book and from the semantic characteristics of the selected objects. Reference information is stored in SQLite database tables.
    In the "Reading the cadastral plan of the territory and updating the map" mode, there is corrected the order of reading information about the spatial component in the XML file. The "Correction of registry errors" mode has been refined based on feedback materials from representatives of the FCP. The order of formation of the text report has been changed and the templates have been updated. There is improved the module for saving into the XML document of the land survey plan version 9 of the ObjectsRealty element - Information about real estate objects located on the formed/modified land plot for recording additional elements the ApartHouse - Apartment building and PropertyComplex - Enterprise as a property complex (PIC).
    The module "Geodesy editor" has been improved. A new mode "Shortening the line (input distance)" has been developed. The mode provides cutting from a linear object at the beginning (or at the end) of a segment of a specified length. The "Route calibration" mode has been updated. Calibration of a linear object based on data from a CSV file has been implemented.

In the new version the possibility of opening the pyramids of tiles in Mbtiles format has been added, the interface of display of a map has been improved, display of current position on a map in the most common coordinate systems and various formats of representation has been implemented.
    The Mbtiles format has been added into the list of formats supported by the application, designed to store a complete set of image layers of spatial data for the selected scale series. Using a set of tiles in a mobile application provides the display of spatial data containing a large number of objects or occupying large amounts of data in offline mode. The data can be prepared in advance for the required area in the GIS "Panorama" or Imagery Creator. To create pyramids of tiles, a combination of digital vector maps, space and aerial photography, elevation matrixes, data from geoportals (for example, Yandex or OpenStreetMap) can be used.
    Possibility has been added for selecting the coordinate system and and format of representation for displaying the position on the map. Regardless of the type of used map, the user can set the most suitable display parameters from among the popular coordinate systems: SK-42, WGS-84 and PZ-90.11. Rectangular (meters) and geodetic (radians, degrees, degrees/minutes/seconds) units of measurement can be used as a format for representing coordinates. This possibility, together with the use of a geonavigation data receiver (GPS/GLONASS), allows you to get the current location in a more informative form. The received coordinates can be copied to the clipboard of the device and used for transmission or further processing.
    GIS "Panorama Mobile" allows you to open the main formats of digital maps of GIS "Panorama" and popular geoportals on mobile devices based on the Aurora OS, to process information from the built-in GPS/GLONASS receiver.

The tools of the "Map Editor" and "Preparation for printing" tasks have been supplemented, the tools for constructing passages in settlements in the "Automated generalization of topographical maps" task have been improved, and the tools for preparing cadastral documents have been expanded.
    When opening different maps in one session (DBM-projects) from the same spatial database the repeated requests for user authorization are excluded. The diagnostic protocol of connecting to a spatial database has been refined to analyze data errors. For minimizing errors of entering the database connection parameters, control of admissible values has been improved and the lists for choosing admissible parameters have been added.
    In the "Map Editor" task, the "Common points" mode on the "Topology" panel has been improved. For the convenience of analyzing the consistency of the contours of two arbitrary objects, common points, mismatched points and intersection points of the contours are displayed in different colors. A pop-up message is displayed on the screen with the numbers of objects and the number of common points and intersection points of the contours. The message is stored in the protocol of the program work session.
    The task "View map control log" of the map editor has been improved, designed to analyze the results of the execution of programs for control and editing of a digital vector map. To improve the convenience of editing the object metrics, the "Automatic selection" option has been added. When viewing inspection results and selecting an option on the map, the current message list object is automatically selected. This eliminates additional operator actions for selecting an object on the map and allows you to quickly switch to the Map Editor modes: Edit point, Delete object, Delete subobject and others.
    Ability has been added for the directly open graphic files without dialog of conversion to RSW via the File - Open menu, for quick access to various terrain images. When graphic files are opened for the first time, a service RSW file is automatically created without copying the image and a TAF file with a pyramid of reduced images, if they were not in the original file. To work with large images, it is recommended to open files with converting of image to RSW format via the menu File - Import rasters and matrix. This will speed up the display of graphics, allow you to process a large number of files of arbitrary sizes with a limited memory area, and speed up the conversion of image projections on the fly.
    In the "Classifier editor" task, tools for maintaining a tree of object layers have been updated. In each top-level layer, a tree of object classes can be created. Classes are lower-level layers that, together with layers, form a layered tree of layers. The division of objects into layers and classes makes it possible to describe the classification of objects of any hierarchy. There is added the ability to number classes automatically in the form of layer sub-items or using class keys that are entered by the user and can have special numeric and alphabetic class designations. Into the table of objects view on all bookmarks a switching of the view of objects from printer to the screen view and vice versa has been added. On the "Objects" tab, switching occurs when you select the "Printer" or "Display" object view parameters bookmarks. Thus, you can immediately evaluate the components of the parameters of the object display and their changes.
    In the "Navigator 3D" task, a change in the relief scale for the entire surface of the model of the displayed area has been added. For the "map" type surface view, the display of matrixes has been added in the form that is configured in the two-dimensional display window of data (color, grayscale, shadows only). These changes make it possible to better assess the relief of the area under consideration. Small bumps in the terrain become more pronounced when the scale of the terrain is increased to 800% and the display of elevation matrixes in the shadows is added. Thus, it is possible to assess the difficulty of passing the route being laid, the convenience of observing the terrain, the possibility of building extended objects (cable networks and pipelines).
    The task "Preparation for printing" has been improved. Placement of filling characters on the polygon with control over imposition on other conventional characters or signatures was automated. If at the calculated point of placement of the filling character, another character falls into the dimensions of the sign, then the filling character at this point is not recorded. For those types of signs with which the intersection is allowed, an exclusion filter is set. For example, a filling sign of the meadow can be placed on top of horizontals or polygons with a white background, and so on. To design the corresponding types of objects for publication in the classifier, the display of filling signs on electronic maps is disabled, or filling signs applied over the entire surface are removed, and placement is performed taking into account the intersection with other conventional signs. To automate the process of preparing for publication, the procedure for placing signs with the appropriate settings is included in the general design scenario of the published map sheet.
    Procedure of scenario "Contours simplification on turn" has been added. The procedure allows you to replace the view of a contour section on a bend or turn with a simpler one. The elements of the contour, which is displayed using a typesetting line that includes vector signs, may overlap at the places of bending or turning, which impairs visual perception. For example, objects of the "Earth сliffs" type are displayed on the map using a dashed line. In narrow sections of the contour, strokes can intersect with each other. The procedure "Contours simplification on turn" searches for fragments of the contour where elements are superimposed, and replaces the appearance of the contour in these sections with the one specified in the scenario. By running this procedure, the user can, for example, replace the type of objects of the type "Earth cliffs" at bends or turns with the type "Edge of ravine, washout", which is displayed on the map using a simple line without dashes.
    In the "Automated generalization of topographic maps" task, the "Formation of passages in settlements" mode has been improved, which creates additional passages on the map in the intervals between neighboring quarters and sides of streets. Quality of formation of passages has been improved. The unacceptable intersections of the created passage with map objects have been eliminated. Improved the shape of passages located along quarters of complex shape. When creating a passage, the proximity of the passage points to its source objects (quarter, side of the street) is checked. If the passage points are closer than the junction threshold, then the creation of the passage is not performed.
    The module "Geodesy editor" has been improved. The "Route calibration" mode has been updated. Calibration of a linear object based on data from a CSV file has been implemented. In the "Filling out the report for the object" mode, the rounding of geodetic coordinates to 10 decimal places is implemented. Onto the position of the ROW01 marker, there is implemented the insertion of geodetic coordinates WGS-84 from the map object - the binding of the forest area. The search for the binding object is performed automatically, and it is mapped in advance and the necessary identification semantics, the Number of the cutting area, are filled for it.
    The module "Cadastral documents" has been improved. In the "Reading the cadastral plan of the territory and updating the map" mode, there is corrected the order of reading information about the spatial component in the XML file. If there is no description of the individual contours of the cadastral object, then the processing of the metric and the formation of the object on the map is not performed. The "Correction of registry errors" mode has been refined based on feedback materials from representatives of the FCP. The order of formation of the text report has been changed and the templates have been updated. There is improved the module for saving into the XML document of the land survey plan version 9 of the ObjectsRealty element - Information about real estate objects located on the formed/modified land plot for recording additional elements the ApartHouse - Apartment building and PropertyComplex - Enterprise as a property complex (PIC). When editing the item Buildings constructions (list), a dialog is called to enter the values of four repeatable semantics. Into the semantics of the "Sign of an apartment building" you need to write the text Yes, if the property is an apartment building. Into semantics the "Sign of enterprise as a property complex", you need to write the text Yes, if the land plot (property right to the land plot) is a part of the PIC). In the "Land survey plan" mode, when forming an XML document, the algorithm for forming the SpecifyRelatedParcel element has been changed for the case of clarifying the description of coordinates of an adjacent section of the ChangeBorder boundaries. An analysis of point objects has been added, taking into account their belonging to a specific object of cadastral works. "Correction of registry errors" mode has been improved. Analysis of point objects in the points of the metric of cadastral objects has been added, taking into account identification semantics. Now you can use different sets of characteristic points for adjacent objects with a common section of borders. At the same time, the names of characteristic points should be unique only within one cadastral object. Filling the text report and XML file has been refined, taking into account the new algorithm for analyzing characteristic points. When forming an XML document of the land survey plan, in the ExistParcel/RelatedParcels element "Information about land plots adjacent to the specified land plot", the value of the Definition attribute "Designation of a characteristic point or part of the border" is filled in taking into account the search for characteristic points, taking into account the identification semantics of the adjacent land plot.

  • 02.03.2023 In a GIS "Panorama AGRO" a work with large amounts of data in the register of field passports has been optimised
    In KB "Panorama" is developed the GIS "Panorama AGRO" version 5.3. The program is adapted for work with the vector, raster and matrix data, created by GIS "Panorama" version 14. The new version of the program optimizes the construction of a hierarchical data tree of field passports and a switching between elements in the list of working arable land plots. The performance of processing and displaying information has been improved with a large (tens of thousands) number of records in the field passport database. Support of providers of access to the attributive data has been expanded and their loading at the time of program start has been accelerated. The help system has been updated and translated into a web-format. The tools for statistical data analysis and designing of farmland maps are built-in.
    The new version supports tools of statistical data analysis. A type of programmable signs has been added into the agro10t.rsc classifier for displaying diagrams by semantics of objects. The diagram description includes a list of codes of semantics corresponding to sectors and/or columns of the diagram. Semantics are filled for a contour of an agricultural land. For example, requirement for nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, acidity degree, humus content and others. The diagrams are updated automatically when the values of the characteristics of the work area change. Diagrams, together with the change in the color of the working area, can be used to visualize the state of agricultural land.
    Support of service semantics influencing the size and color of a conventional sign, taking into account type of objects has been added. For example, for titles, in addition to the color, font type and height are available. By changing the values of the semantics of an object through the "Select Object" dialog, you can give individual features to the conventional signs of various objects, for example, change the color of the line or the background color of the polygon.
    The licensing mechanism has been updated. Into the "About" window the information on the licence was added: number, type and expiration date of the license, as well as the expiration date of technical support.
    GIS "Panorama AGRO" is designed to automate the management of the farming system of enterprises.

  • 01.03.2023 GIS WebServer SE allows to update quickly socio-economic maps placed on municipal and regional geoportals
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS WebServer SE version 6.11.0 has been developed for operating systems Astra Linux, CentOS, Ubuntu, MS Windows. In the new version the map editing tools have been improved, possibilities of work with a map legend have been expanded, the administration module has been improved.
    The mode of group editing of objects has been updated in the Map Editor. For several objects selected on the map, you can perform the operation of moving, rotating or scaling. Group editing is performed in one step, which allows you to quickly make changes into the map and reduces editing time. The user can cancel a group operation on objects. As a result of the undo, all objects that have been changed will be restored. Cancelling and restoring operations of editing is carried out on the basis of the transaction log operated by a request to the server. Into the Map Legend component a fast search of objects has been added, legend contents can be viewed as the list of objects or in a hierarchical view. In the map window there is added a display of the cursor coordinates in various units - meters, degrees, radians of a current projection of a map. The choice of cursor coordinate units (meters, degrees, radians) is performed in the Options component.
    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. The program is certified by the 2nd level of control over the absence of undeclared capabilities. GIS WebServer SE is implemented using the GIS WebToolKit SE, which can be used in development tools that use the JavaScript and TypeScript.
    On the basis of GIS WebServer SE and other server products of KB "Panorama" the Regional GIS of the Ryazan region (RGIS RО) has been implemented. RGIS RО is a specialized multifunctional geoportal, the interactive capabilities of which provide access to reliable information about objects of various categories.

  • 25.02.2023 A new version of GIS Constructor for Astra Linux Special Edition is aimed at certification in the information security certification system of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation
    Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared the GIS Constructor version 14.2.3 for Astra Linux Special Edition. The new version is aimed at certification in the information security certification system of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation for level 2 of control of the absence of undeclared capabilities in accordance with the governing document of the State Technical Commission of Russia and for the compliance of real and declared functionality in the documentation.
    In the program a support of the packed formats of spatial data (MAPZ, SITZ, MPTZ) has been added. The volume of the packed data is reduced approximately in 3 times in comparison with volume of the initial data with the maximum accuracy of the metrics. If the map sheet is located in memory entirely it is unpacked in a multi-threaded mode when opening the data of sheet to speed up access. The packed MPTZ project is an archive of spatial data containing a complex representation of the territory in the form of vector maps of different levels of detail, rasters (terrain images) in RSW format, matrixes of heights and matrixes of quality characteristics of the terrain, insets from the same data, the links to data from the GIS Server and from geoportals by various protocols. The packaged MPTZ project is supported in the KB "Panorama" software products on all platforms, including mobile devices.
    The toolkit allows you to implement in the developed GIS applications a direct connection to large spatial databases (millions of records) by using the support of DBM format. Information from the database is displayed in the form of vector maps of the area. GIS application will be able to simultaneously edit the contents of databases connected directly and through the GIS Server, carry out exchange of information between different databases, agree the coordinates and attributes of objects in different databases, jointly display information from different databases in the form of graphic layers, combine data with images , matrixes of heights, vector maps and data from various geoportals and web services. Spatial information from the database is displayed in the form of cartographic conventional symbols, which makes the editing process transparent for the user. The set of displayed and edited objects and their semantic characteristics can be flexibly specified using an SQL query.
    In GIS Constructor a support of digital sea maps of IHO S63 standard has been implemented. An application system developer can add support for the standard into own application and register the application in the prescribed manner for obtaining a developer key. Files of data of a sea map will be transformed to the project of maps (MPT) containing a list of SITX files coded by a key of record from the user's permission. More detailed information is given in the document "Programmer's guide".
    An automatic clustering algorithm is implemented to divide a set of point signs into groups and display them. Cluster descriptions are contained in the map classifier. The conventional sign of the cluster can be programmable, which allows you to select the type of cluster in various ways and change the properties of the sign depending on the number of objects in the cluster (signature of the number, size of the sign, brightness). When grouping more than one object of a given type in a virtual cell of a cluster, their conventional symbols will be automatically replaced by a symbol of the cluster, the center of which will have the average coordinate of the objects included into it. When you change the scale, the configuration of the clusters automatically changes.
    The new version adds a mechanism for converting projections of raster and matrix data on the fly. The user gets the opportunity to combine an arbitrary set of spatial data without additional actions. The projection parameters will be automatically converted to the projection of the first opened map. In this case, all the necessary changes will be made in the RAM, which allows you to keep the original cartographic material unchanged. Over the obtained data set you can perform operations of updating, calculation, building a three-dimensional model.
    There is accelerated an opening and first display of maps due to the formation of the "*.sol" file with a tree of territorial distribution of objects onto each sheet of the map. When the map is opened, the object tree is read and the first display is accelerated by 5-15 times (for a map with 2 million objects, the opening and first display is accelerated from 9-12 seconds to 1 second). In the absence of the "*.sol" file, the automatic construction of a tree and file saving are carried out.
    The mechanism for displaying dynamic objects on the map has been improved. Now the typical task of displaying the trajectory of an object on the map can be solved by simply changing the coordinates of the object and the angle of rotation in its characteristics.
    Display of rasters with smoothing has been added. At increasing the image of a raster more than in two times from the initial size in pixels the smoothing is carried out. The new algorithm of display allows to get rid of "pixelization" effect when you increase the rasters. Image smoothing is performed by bicubic interpolation method (by 16 nearest raster elements).
    Abilities of displaying titles have been expanded. New properties of design the titles allow to mark the title by a shade, outline, a background and a frame, and also to format the text taking into account a spacing sign (an insert of spaces) and the chosen register (uppercase, lowercase, as in a sentence). There is added the ability to change the thickness of solid and dashed contours of objects by the value of the service semantics "Line thickness in mm" (31005). To display various tabular information on the map, a new graphic symbol "Table" has been developed. To display the table in the desired position, a point object is created that has a link to the CSV file in the semantics and a conventional symbol of the "Table" type.
    API in Python language is included into GIS Constructor that provides access to several thousand functions of the MAPAPI-interface for spatial data analysis, automation of processes of creating and updating digital terrain models. There are several options for using scripts as part of a GIS application: a visual component of designing, a program interface of a call from the C/C++ language, direct writing and execution of Python scripts. Due to the fact that the Python scripting programming language has a large set of connected modules, the user receives an easy-to-use and extensive auxiliary toolkit (mathematical calculations, processing of text and graphic data, work with a network and another) when creating a GIS application.
    In the new version, support for 3D spatial data tiles in the DB3D format has been added into the graphic component of displaying a three-dimensional terrain model. This will allow you to display accurate and realistic 3D models of unlimited size. The DB3D format is designed to store and display pyramids of 3D tiles packaged with metadata tables in SQLite format. Vector 3D tiles can be used to build a 3D terrain model in conjunction with other data sources: vector maps, space and aerial photographs, geoportals, point clouds, elevation matrixes.
    In the new version the mechanism of reading files of digital maps in an exchange format (MIF/MID, TXF and others) has been improved. As a result, large files (for example, TXF larger than 4 GB) with incorrect characters may be imported. In this case, the erroneous sections will be skipped, and the import will continue. Into the list of supported formats JSON has been added, consisting of records of objects coordinates. Support of XML files having the size larger than 4 GB has been added. XML format processing is used in a wide range of tasks in the development of GIS applications (for example, importing data in GML format).
    Support for layers from the Rosreestr geoportal has been added: Cadastral okrug, Cadastral districts, Cadastral quarters, Land plots, Land plots put up for auction, Red lines, Unified real estate complexes. Geoportal provides data in vector tile form in pbf (Protocolbuffer Binary Format) format. The data contains the coordinates of objects, signatures of plots, semantic characteristics.
    Parameters for connecting to geoportals can be flexibly configured for each user by editing the wmslist_ru.xml file. The new version of the program is adapted to work in the OS "Astra Linux Special Edition" release "Smolensk" version 1.7.
    GIS Constructor is a set of 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.

  • 23.02.2023 In GIS "Operator" for OS "Astra Linux Special Edition" and OS "Alt 8 SP" the tools of studying the terrain and processing spatial data have been improved
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Operator" version 14.2.5 has been developed for OS "Astra Linux Special Edition" (Release "Smolensk"), OS "Alt 8 SP" (architecture x86-64) and RED OS. In the new version, the ability to control the selection of map objects has been added, the task of importing DXF format data has been improved. Tools of map editing have been expanded, a type of programmable signs has been added to display bar charts, the list of scripts in the python language has been expanded, the efficiency of searching and displaying data has been increased by optimizing the allocation of RAM.
    The task "Highlight any area" has been improved. Changing the conditions for selecting objects selected by area has been simplified. The selection of objects by area is performed using the "Select inside the object" and "Select by any area" modes (polygon, rectangular fragment, lasso). At the end of drawing the area on the map, objects located inside the selected area are highlighted. To change the selection conditions, press the right mouse button and select one of the modes in the context menu: Highlight inside (delete intersection), Highlight with intersection (and inside), Highlight outside (delete intersection).
    Marking of objects on the map according to various search conditions has been improved. If clusters are displayed on the map (generalized signs of closely spaced objects specified in the classifier), then the corresponding signs of clusters are displayed and marked, taking into account the number of signs and their location on the map.
    The composition of the "Map Editor" task has been extended. In the "Point editing" mode, the "End points in alignment" auxiliary mode has been added, designed to cut or extend the first or last segment of a linear object.
    New type of programmable signs has been added for displaying bar charts according to the semantics of objects with display in a legend of semantics values (in addition to a sign displaying values in percentage). The description of diagrams includes a list of codes of semantics corresponding to sectors of the diagram. For each semantics the own parameters of displaying a sector are set. For all diagram the maximum width and the maximum height of the diagram are set. To the right of the diagram its legend is displayed. Texts of lines for signing of sectors are taken from semantics names, excepting repeating part of names. For example, if the semantics are called Number of inhabitants under 20 years old, Number of inhabitants from 20 to 40 years old, then the legend will contain the following lines: up to 20 years old, from 20 to 40 years old, and so on. The conventional symbol the "Bar chart" is shown in the data example on the map \Data\shape.
    Import from DXF format has been improved. There is added a recalculation of coordinates and sizes of characters from storage units specified in DXF: inches, feet, miles, millimeters, centimeters, meters, and so on.
    The formation of graphic primitives from the parameters of symbols specified in DXF has been improved, which allows you to reproduce the view of the original drawing without setting the symbols.
    A script has been added into the list of basic python scripts that calculates the distance from the selected object up to several selected objects with recording into the semantics of the calculated value.
    The tasks of sorting, importing and exporting maps in SXF and TXF formats have been improved to support clone objects. RAM distribution has been improved when processing large data sets (tens of gigabytes and more than a hundred million objects). The speed of searching and displaying data has been raised.

  • 08.02.2023 GIS "Panorama" for OS "Astra Linux Special Edition" and OS "Alt 8 SP" provides preparing pyramids of tiles of spatial data for acceleration of displaying in mobile and web applications
    In KB "Panorama" the GIS "Panorama" version 14.2.5 has been developed for OS "Astra Linux Special Edition" (release "Smolensk") and OS "Alt 8 SP" (architecture x86-64). In the new version the possibility of saving the spatial data into pyramids of tiles in Mbtiles format has been added, tasks of export and import of data of the DXF format have been improved. New modes of the "Map Editor" task have been developed, a type of programmable signs has been added to display bar charts, the list of scripts in the python language has been expanded, the efficiency of searching and displaying data has been increased by optimizing the allocation of RAM.
    A new task of saving a pyramid of tiles into Mbtiles format has been developed, designed to create a complete set of spatial data image layers for the selected scale series. Mbtiles format is a SQLite database that stores images in png, jpg, png8 formats. The purpose of forming a set of rasters (tiles) is to speed up the display in mobile and web applications of spatial data containing a large number of objects or occupying large amounts of data. It allows in an offline mode to provide an access to pre-prepared spatial data. To create pyramids of tiles, a combination of digital vector maps, space and aerial photography, matrixes of heights, data from geoportals and other data can be used. Pyramids of tiles can be published via the OGC WMTS protocol by the GIS WebService SE service or displayed in the GIS "Operator", GIS "Panorama" programs, in various mobile applications.
    Export of the document of an electronic map into KMZ format has been added. The generated KMZ archive contains a KML project file and a set of pyramid tiles for the saved area. The KML file contains a description of the raster data parameters - the names and coordinates of the rasters binding, as well as their display priority. A fragment of an electronic map's document of any type and composition can be saved, including vector maps, images and matrixes, as well as geospatial data from external Internet resources (WMS and WFS services) and databases. The task implements the ability to save a map image by the selected area, by the page format and by the dimensions of the selected objects, for example, by the dimensions of frameworks of nomenclature sheets.
    The task "Map Editor" has been improved. In the group of modes "Creating an object", the mode "Create clone" has been added. A clone is an object that has a link to the metric of the cloned object and its symbol.
    Typically, such objects create objects of map design, for example, centerlines of roads. It allows to reduce volume of the stored data and to synchronise editing of the metrics of objects and their elements of registration. Allocation of objects of registration in separate objects-clones allows to execute them отрисовку after end отрисовки all made out objects and to raise quality of the image (for example to execute procleaning of crossroads of all roads). Problems of sorting, import and map export in formats SXF and TXF for support of objects-clones are finished. Modes a cutting of objects of a map inside and out of the chosen contour, giving possibility of group removal of marked: selected objects of an electronic map on the set contour are added. For the purpose of improvement of quality of a cutting of objects of a map accuracy of processing is increased. Upon termination of processing the rounding off of co-ordinates of the cut off contours is carried out. Thus metrics co-ordinates are led the accuracy specified in the passport of a map (centimetres, millimetres). In a mode "point Editing" the auxiliary mode "Trailer points in an alignment", intended for execution scraps or lengthenings of first or last piece of linear object is added. This allows you to reduce the amount of stored data and synchronize the editing of the metrics of objects and their design elements. Separating design objects into separate clone objects allows you to display them after the display of all designed objects is completed and improve the image quality (for example, clean the intersections of all roads). The tasks of sorting, importing and exporting maps in SXF and TXF formats have been improved to support clone objects. There are added the modes of cutting the map objects inside and outside the selected contour, providing the possibility of group deletion of selected electronic map's objects along a given contour. In order to improve the quality of cutting map objects, the accuracy of processing has been increased. At the end of processing, the coordinates of the cut contours are rounded. In this case, the coordinates of the metric are reduced to the accuracy indicated in the map passport (centimeters, millimeters). In the "Point editing" mode, the "End points in alignment" auxiliary mode has been added, designed to cut or extend the first or last segment of a linear object.
    New type of programmable signs has been added for displaying bar charts according to the semantics of objects with display in a legend of semantics values (in addition to a sign displaying values in percentage). The description of diagrams includes a list of codes of semantics corresponding to sectors of the diagram. For each semantics the own parameters of displaying a sector are set. For all diagram the maximum width and the maximum height of the diagram are set. To the right of the diagram its legend is displayed. Texts of lines for signing of sectors are taken from semantics names, excepting repeating part of names. For example, if the semantics are called Number of inhabitants under 20 years old, Number of inhabitants from 20 to 40 years old, then the legend will contain the following lines: up to 20 years old, from 20 to 40 years old, and so on. The conventional symbol the "Bar chart" is shown in the data example on the map \Data\shape.
    The tasks of exporting and importing data in DXF format have been improved. Saving and setting object color in RGB format has been implemented. The RGB color model covers a wider range of colors and provides the highest color rendition compared to the previously used indexed color of AutoCAD palette. Improved import from DXF format. Added recalculation of coordinates and sizes of characters from storage units specified in DXF: inches, feet, miles, millimeters, centimeters, meters, and so on. The formation of graphic primitives from the parameters of symbols specified in DXF has been improved, which allows you to reproduce the view of the original drawing without setting the symbols.
    A script has been added into the list of basic python scripts that calculates the distance from the selected object up to several selected objects with recording into the semantics of the calculated value. RAM distribution has been improved when processing large data sets (tens of gigabytes and more than a hundred million objects). The speed of searching and displaying data has been raised.
    GIS "Panorama" - universal domestic geoinformation system. The program is designed for accumulation, storage, the automated processing and display of data, calculation results and forecasts with geospatial reference.

  • 07.02.2023 "Workstation of cadastral engineer" forms a forest declaration and its annexes in XML format
    In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of cadastral engineer" version 14.5.3 has been developed. In the new version the mode "Formation of forest declaration in electronic XML format with annexes" has been added. The form of the forest declaration, the procedure for filling out and submitting it, the requirements for the format of the forest declaration in electronic form were approved by the order of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology of the Russian Federation dated April 29, 2021 N 303.
    Formation of the forest declaration is carried out for selected objects of the map - forest areas. The map is created using the forestry.v2 digital classifier. Entering information for filling the form of the forest declaration is performed in the dialog by entering values or selecting elements from reference books of the unified regulatory and reference information of the federal forestry agency. Reference information is stored in SQLite database tables.
    The new mode "Shorten line (distance input)" provides cutting from a linear object at the beginning or at the end of the metric of a section of a specified length.
    The mode "Transfer semantics to allocated objects" mode has been improved, which provides group filling of cadastral attributes. Using this mode, you can fill in the semantics "Cadastral numbers of buildings" for land plots. The program searches for real estate objects located inside the plots (for example, buildings), reads the initial semantics "Cadastral number" and fills in the output semantics. As a result of execution, each land plot will have the number of output semantics corresponding to the number of buildings located on it.
    A new mode "Sign the shortest distance to selected features" has been developed. The mode calculates the shortest distances in a straight line from the border of the selected objects to the specified (selected) map object. The result of calculations is mapped in the form of a linear object and a signing its length. When mapping, the standard options of the "Geodesy editor" from the "Editor" page are used. The calculated distance value is written into the semantics of a linear object.
    The new version of the program is available on the website in the Download section.

  • 03.02.2023 Tools for designing maps, preparing reports and publishing have been updated in GIS "Panorama"
    KB "Panorama" developed GIS "Panorama" version 14.5.3. In the new version, the task "Classifier editor" has been completely updated which controls the logical structure and classification system of vector map data. Tools for editing maps, preparing reports, processing elevation matrices have been improved, tools for preparing a forest declaration in electronic format (XML), preparing cadastral maps have been supplemented, and the complex for automated preparation of maps for publication has been updated.
    The new version of the task "Classifier editor" has been developed. Information about the composition of the classifier is supplemented by the number of connected libraries with user signs, libraries of 3D signs and objects that have a three-dimensional appearance in the tab "General data". "Translation" tool has been added to translate the names of layers, objects and semantics of the classified into other languages. Operating the color palettes of the classifier is placed on a separate tab "Palettes". There is a convenient opportunity to simultaneously view and work with the colors of RGB and CMYK palettes. Adjusting the arrangement of colors in the palette table permits to arrange them with the greatest convenience for editing. For each color, there is shown the number of objects types for the classifier that use this color. This makes it possible to quickly see unused colors in the palette. The new tool "Transfer color to unused space" permits to reduce the size of the palette, if it is necessary. When a color is selected in the palette, a table of object types using this color is displayed at the bottom of the tab. From the table of types for objects on any tab, by double-clicking the left mouse button on the object, it is possible to go to the tab "Objects" to edit it. The new tool "Replace color in objects" permits to replace the selected color with another one in all classifier objects that use it. There are added tools for converting color from RGB to CMYK and vice versa. The field "Number of colors" for the palette displays the number of colors actually used in objects of the palette.
    There is added the ability to create a palette of named colors. It has a tree structure and it can be used together with the main RGB palettes of the classifier. One example of its application is the stratigraphic (geochronological) scale, the geological time scale of the Earth's history. In the tab" Layers", there has been added a mode to view all layers together with their classes in the form of a tree. The tool "Classes" permits to add and edit classes for the selected layer. In the tab "Objects" there have been added tools for searching objects by name, code, symbolic code, key and other properties via "Object filter". In the subtab "Scale" there is added the ability to enter the arbitrary denominator of the scale for the lower and upper boundaries for the visibility of the object. In the subtab "Miscellaneous", there are added the properties of the object "Design object" and "Polygon with a dot". In the subtab "3D", there has been added the selection of the three-dimensional model of an object by types: near, medium, far. In the modes of creating or copying an object, all characteristics are filled in automatically. The operator is then prompted to change these fields if it is necessary. The tool "Creating and editing the series of objects" has been updated. Object properties: layer, class, visibility, additional object properties ("Miscellaneous" tab) - can be changed for all objects in the series at once or for one selected object. The tab "Clusters" has been added to describe the signs of clusters that display densely spaced point signs. The tab selects the types of objects related to each type of cluster, the cell sizes vertically and horizontally, the semantics code for specifying the current number of objects in the cluster, the type of cluster symbol, the limiting percentage for increasing the size of the cluster sign and the limiting number of objects corresponding to the maximum size of the sign cluster.
    In the tab "Libraries", in the tree of custom functions for displaying objects, next to the name of the function, there has been added the number of types for objects in which it is used. When a function is selected in the object table, all types of objects that use this function are displayed in the right part of the tab. The tab "3D" has been supplemented with understandable tools for creating and connecting p3d-libraries of the three-dimensional view of objects. The enlarged view (zoomed-in view) of the selected texture has been added to make it easier to view textures when editing their composition. When the texture is selected at the bottom of the tab, there is displayed a list of objects in the 3D view of which it is used.
    There has been improved the mode of the map editor "Cutting lists" which is included in the group "Cutting and stitching". The new algorithm cuts out not only areal, but also linear objects (according to the list of reference objects). By default, response points are saved in the reference objects created at the intersection of the contours for the reference and edited (cropped) objects. This method of processing lets to save the topology of the metrics for cropped objects with reference ones. If there is no need to save the topology (at intersections), then to speed up processing it is recommended to enable the option "Do not match points of edited objects with points of reference objects".
    The task "Report designer" has been improved. There has been added the ability to automatically add the created legend to the report map as an inset map or insert an image, depending on the selected format of the saved legend in the mode "Formation of the legend".
    The task for constructing a matrix of height differences based on two other matrices has been improved. There is added the support for the analysis of matrices in different coordinate systems. The task "Export DEM to file TIFF and KMZ" has been improved. The entry record has been added to the output file of the parameters of the vertical coordinate system, created in accordance with the height system of the source matrix. The file GeoTIFF stores the name of the vertical coordinate system, the height units contained in the file, and other parameters. For example: "Baltic 1977 height (EPSG:5705)", "MSL height (EPSG : 5714)", "WGS 84 (geographic 3D) (EPSG : 4327)".
    The task "Adding data from the directory to the document" has been improved. There is added the ability to import DEMs or images from files TIFF(GeoTIFF), IMG, KMZ contained in the selected folder. When enabling on the form of the element "Import heights from TIFF, IMG files", the control of the program is transferred to the dialog "Import matrices from formats SRTM, GeoTIFF".
    The new mode "Formation of the forest declaration in electronic format (XML) with attachments (appendices)" has been added to the task "Cadastral documents". The form of the forest declaration, the procedure for filling out and submitting it, the requirements for the format of the forest declaration in electronic form were approved by order of Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology of the Russian Federation dated April 29, 2021 N 303. The forest declaration reflects information about the person who filed the forest declaration; on a lease agreement for a forest plot or other document in accordance with which the use of forests is carried out; about the location of the forest area; on the volume of forest use; on the types of forests use, which are provided for by the forest lease agreement, or other document in accordance with which the use of forests is carried out, the forest development project for the declared period. Formation of the forest declaration is carried out for selected objects of the map - forest areas. The map is created using the digital classifier forestry.v2.rsc. Entering information to fill in the forest declaration form is performed by selecting values from the reference book and from the semantic characteristics of the selected objects. The reference information is stored in the database tables SQLite.
    The module "Geodesic editor" has been improved. A new mode "Shortening the line (input distance)" has been developed. The mode provides cutting off from a linear object at the beginning (or at the end) of a segment of the specified length. The mode is included in the panel "Objects changing". The mode "Transfer of semantics to selected objects" has been improved. To perform the operation, it is necessary to select land plots on the map, for which it is necessary to fill in the repeatable semantics "Cadastral numbers of buildings" (code 1061). Next, in the mode dialog, specify the type of objects located inside the plots (for example, buildings), the initial semantics (Cadastral number, 1001) and the output semantics. As a result of execution, each land plot will have the number of output semantics corresponding to the number of buildings located on it. A new mode "Writing the shortest distance to selected objects" has been developed. The mode calculates the shortest distances in a straight line from the border of the selected objects to the specified (selected) map object. The result of calculations is plotted on the map in the form of a linear object and writing of its length. When plotting, the standard settings of "geodesic editor" are used, the page "Editor". The additionally computed distance value is written to the line semantics.
    There are improved tools for automated map preparation for publication. There are added script procedures "Classification of captions by location" and "Removal of coinciding contours". In accordance with the design rules on topographic maps of scales 1: 25,000, 1: 50,000, 1: 100,000, conventional signs such as "Forest strip", "Power lines", "Communication lines", "Glades" ("Clearings") and road network objects are written by one type of caption "Explanatory captions and characteristics (T-132) 1.3 mm". From the point of minimizing view for the size of the digital classifier, this approach is optimal. From the point of view for automated processing when generalizing a map or preparing for publication, such approach is harmful: it is impossible to unambiguously determine whether a caption belongs to the written object. When performing these works, some fragments of linear objects can be removed, displaced, or change the shape of the contour (in the process of filtering, generalizing and smoothing the metrics). When deleting a contour, the corresponding caption with the characteristics of this contour should be deleted. When changing the contour, the position of the caption should be specified (alignment of the caption metrics with the road contour, or offset from the road by the specified distance). The procedure "Classification of caption by location" permits to automatically assign certain types of signs "Characteristics of the forest strip", "Characteristics of power lines", "Characteristics of communication lines", "Characteristics of clearing", "Characteristics of the road", "Road number". The classification of captions permits the separate processing of each type of captions. Captions of the type "Road number" are obsolete and can be removed: currently the vector sign "Road number" is written with text from the semantics "Road number", the width of the sign frame is calculated automatically according to the length of the caption. Captions "Characteristics of the forest strip" located on top of the signs "Forest strip" near the road can be automatically shifted by the required distance. Automatic displacement of captions is performed using the script procedure "Refining the position of vector characters".
    The procedure "Removal of coincident contours" permits to automatically remove fragments of highways and trunk roads, the metrics of which partially coincide with vector bridges and captions of the type "Road characteristics". Before executing this procedure, the road intersections are processed. White and orange road decoration lines are created over the roads, masking the black outlines at intersections. Then the procedure "Removal of coincident contours" is performed, as a result of which fragments for the external black contours of roads are removed at the intersections with bridges and captions. The middle orange lines of the road design are saved.
    The procedure for the scenario "Refining the position of vector characters" has been improved. This procedure performs the displacement of objects relative to the linear objects of the road network (taking into account the width of the roads). There is added processing of captions and point characters. The processing of captions is performed when specifying the position of the caption "Characteristics of the forest strip".

This task is designed to control vector maps, dispatching updates of digital data about the area by employees when performing field work or processing data from remote sensing of the Earth.
    The video tutorial clearly demonstrates the issuance and acceptance of the work map (a fragment of the base map) for the update territory. This feature permits to perform parallel tasks to update map data. For example, one operator can update the address base. The second one can update the power grid facilities. The third one can update the gas facilities. When accepting data, there are checked the modified data of the working map and the current state of the base map. After all the necessary checks, the result of the work is placed on the base map. The data are updated on the map.
    The task is performed in two stages:
    - at the first stage of work, a fragment of the digital map is selected and the standard of the issued fragment is memorized;
    - at the second stage, the map is accepted from the operator. The table of changes in the working map is formed in comparison with the standard and the current state of the base map. The table contains records about changing the composition of objects, updating the metrics and semantics of objects.
    Before performing the second stage, accepting the processed data for the issued map fragment, it is recommended to check the quality of the plotted information using the task "Vector map quality control".
    It is possible to be acquainted with the training materials in the section "Video tutorials".

  • 07.01.2023 Tools for preparing operational maps of the area have been expanded in GIS "Operator" SE for OS "Astra Linux Special Edition", OS "Alt 8 SP" and RED OS.
    KB "Panorama" developed GIS "Operator" version 14.2.4 for OS "Astra Linux Special Edition" (release "Smolensk"), OS "Alt 8 SP" (architecture x86-64) and RED OS. The new version implements the task of generating nomenclature sheets of topographic maps for the specified area, adds a new type of software product licensing over the network, improves the quality of displaying graphic symbols on the map, improves the display of sea charts, and adds new tools for specifying the dimensions of the created map objects. The possibilities of obtaining cartographic data have been improved for preparation of the report documents. The interface has been improved for managing the selection of open digital maps.
    The new task "Formation of map sheets by coordinates" is designed to create a topographic area of work according to the specified dimensions and sheet nomenclature. The user can set the boundaries of the area to be created by entering values in degrees or meters in the dialog interface. If there is an open map, it is possible to use additionally an arbitrary map object, fragment or dimensions of the entire map as initial data. The list of nomenclature sheets is formed in accordance with the generally accepted rules for designating a map sheet. The multi-sheet map obtained as a result of the task can later be used as input data for other tasks (for example, cutting a document into sheets to speed up the display of a large amount of data). For the convenience of the user, the list of selected items can be exported to a text file and used as input data in the next session of working with the task.
    The type of software product licensing "Floating hardware license (USB-key)" has been added, which lets to dynamically configure a set of computers on which the work with GIS "Operator" will be performed. When using this type of licensing, USB security key is connected to only one workstation on which the license server is installed. At local workstations with GIS "Operator", no additional physical means are required to activate the product, it is enough just to provide network access to the license server and to perform a few simple steps to configure the program. For convenience to control the set of software products to which the user has access, the license type setup dialog provides the interface for viewing license data: license availability, license and technical support expiration dates, operating system type, and a list of available software products.
    The mode for creating the object with the selected drawing method "Horizontal rectangle" has been improved. When performing the interactive selection of a rectangle on the map through the context menu of the mode, it is possible to call the dialog for setting the rectangle size by specifying numerical values for the width, height and area of the selected area. The lengths of the sides for the rectangle can be set in meters or kilometers on the ground, or in millimeters on the map. The area can be specified in square meters, square kilometers or hectares on the ground, or in square millimeters on the map. It is supported to specify the dimensions of the rectangle to create a new map object, taking into account the standard dimensions of the page printed on the device by selecting from the page format list. It is added the display of the list for open maps in the main menu in the section "Window". The list of open maps in the main menu provides more flexible settings for selecting the current active map when several digital maps are open at the same time. The menu clearly shows the names of the maps loaded into the program. In the list of maps, the currently installed active map is marked. Clicking on another item in the list of open maps switches the active map displayed on the screen.
    It has been improved he quality of displaying graphical symbols on the map and in the symbol preview windows of the properties dialogs of the selected map object and Classifier Editor. For graphic characters, the image of which is stored in files, the anti-aliasing algorithm is applied during display, which lets to get rid of "pixeling" effect when the character size is changed in the classifier. Using the anti-aliasing, when displaying graphic symbols, it expands the user's options for customizing the type of symbols in the classifier and it improves the visibility of the map when displayed on the screen.
    It is improved displaying of sea charts according to the standard S52. The implementation of the procedures has been refined: Depval - generation of the depth values based on attribute values for underwater obstacles, taking into account underlying objects, Udwhaz - requesting the code of the displayed symbol and display flag, taking into account the depth of the obstacle or requesting the code of an isolated underwater hazard with the depth less than the safety contour, Wrecks - displaying the remains of a shipwreck.
    It is improved options for saving digital map data in vector format PDF. Vector map data is saved to a file PDF along with rasters and DEMs loaded into them. Setting the display of map layers using the parameter "Above map" lets to control the movement of the required layers to the fore both when the map is rendered on the screen, and when generating a saved image for the vector file PDF. Setting the selection of a fragment for the displayed area gives the opportunity to display an image of the entire work area or a map fragment limited by the rectangular area, a selected map object, or the size of the current map window displayed on the screen.
    The vector format PDF preserves the quality of the map image at any set display scale, which expands the user's ability to choose the scale of the generated file PDF. The mode of saving the map to vector format PDF can be used when preparing reporting documents.
