If the map is very overloaded, you can combine signs of similar meaning into groups and, if the conditions are met, instead of several signs, display one - a generalizing one. An automatic clustering algorithm is implemented to display densely spaced point characters.
The video tutorial provides an example of creating a "Cluster" for closely spaced conventional symbols on a map. When creating a

In KB "Panorama" a toolkit for creating GIS applications the
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. The ability to set the lifetime of the geoportal cache in seconds has been implemented (in order to update previously saved data).
The access component to the map object classifier file (TMapRsc) has been improved. There is added the ability to simultaneously edit the properties of several objects, select and transfer them to another layer or class, assign a common name, edit the visibility scale, digitizing direction, limits for changing the size of a sign, adding, deleting, changing the status of semantics. The function of assigning to several signatures of the attribute of specifying the size of the sign according to the length of the signature, assigning the attribute of prohibiting/allowing stretching to elements. This mode 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.
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).
New functions have been added into MAPAPI to manage the general display list of spatial datasets: request the number of elements in the list of datasets (mapGetViewListCount), request the name of the element (path to the dataset) and the type in the list of datasets (mapGetViewListItemName) and others. The examples and test data included into the GIS ToolKit installation package have been updated.
The GIS ToolKit is a set of visual components, classes and API functions of the GIS kernel for full-fledged work with spatial data. The toolkit is designed to develop client-server and the desktop 32-bit and 64-bit applications that require processing and visualization of spatial data. The GIS ToolKit classes and components are intended for use in the Embarcadero RAD Studio XE5 and higher programming environment (Delphi and C++ Builder) and are supplied with source codes. Components can be compared to "semi-finished products", using which you can quickly and easily develop your own geoinformation application. At the same time, the GIS kernel of the GIS ToolKit can be used not only in the Embarcadero environment, but in any development environment with any compiler that supports WINAPI standard function calls.

Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared a video lesson on creating a backup copy of an aeronautical information database in PostgreSQL format.
During the process of creating a backup copy, there are specified the name of the resulting file with the extension *.backup, UTF8 encoding, role name, and additional parameters of unloading are configured. It is recommended to regularly backup the database, especially when updating versions of the software package.
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.

Specialists of KB "Panorama" have prepared and placed the map of the Jewish Autonomous Region on the geoportal
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

Employees of the Novosibirsk technical school of geodesy and cartography (NTGiK) prepared the article "Use of Professional GIS "Panorama" software for training of specialists in the field of geospatial technologies". The authors of the article were V.I. Obidenko (vice-rector for secondary vocational education - director of the technical school) and M.A. Tatarenkova (teacher at an educational institution).
The published material examines the positive experience of the technical school of geodesy and cartography in training of mid-level specialists for the country's geospatial industry. It is shown that it is advisable for students to study geoinformation technologies on the basis of a single professional software that has the necessary tools and, preferably, of domestic origin. In NTGiK the
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. GIS "Panorama" contains tools of displaying and processing vector, raster and matrix maps. The application provides users with tools for solving specialized tasks of modeling the movement of special objects against the background of 3D model, forecasting of consequences of emergencies at hazardous objects, monitoring of aircraft movement, conducting of geodetic and topographic work, processing the data from GPS/GLONASS navigation devices, printing the displayed spatial data to various output devices and many others. The GIS is included into the Unified register of Russian programs for electronic computers and databases (registry entry No.4227 dated March 29, 2018).
You can get acquainted with materials on the use of GIS "Panorama" in the educational process of training specialists in the field of geospatial technologies in the Articles section.
