GIS provides the framework needed to identify the optimal site(s)
for facilities or activities such as store locations, warehouses,
service centers, drilling sites, municipal facilities, wireless
communications towers, recreational facilities, habitat protection
zones, and so on. You provide the criteria, we provide the results.
Location & Allocation: Wireless Mapping
We deliver a range of wireless coverage maps and market analyses,
depending on your needs and available data resources. Coverage maps
range from simple line-of-sight visibility maps using a "bare earth"
model, to more accurate analyses that include the effects of trees
and man-made obstructions. Market analyses range from rough
approximations based on census data to address-specific household
and business counts, including mailing lists of potential customers
within the signal coverage zones. We can create these maps and
analyses for simple single-antenna systems or more complex
configurations involving multiple antennas and repeaters.
The image shows a portion of a single-antenna coverage map, with
the antenna shown as a red dot on a hilltop in the southwest corner.
Magenta areas indicate locations with line-of-sight visibility to
the antenna, including forest effects but not buildings. Light
green areas are forested areas visible to the antenna; dark green
are forested areas not visible from the antenna.
