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.
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.
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".
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.
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.
