Map Sync

The map downloading feature is a new lightweight interactive map that enables the user to select the region/area of interest inside SignalPro. The automatic downloading from API calls to geospatial hosting. This feature is time efficient as you will spend less time calling map with no external application steps.

Benefits include:

  • Reduces OPEX

  • Only purchase map area required (No
    overhead from forced tiles/regional map)

  • Cost efficient

  • Short term leasing

  • Project per project Basis

  • Up-to-date Maps with automatic updates
    (No longer trapped in old data)

Please note:

  • When data is downloading you can still use the software (data will download in the background.)

    • * however you cannot run studies

  • Sites will adjust with elevation when terrain data is loaded

  • The data is currently available for

    • EGS world data is 30m terrain and clutter (studies aross borders may be an issue, please contact support if you are trying to run a study across a country border.)

    • Cirrus hybrid US data is 10m terrain and 5m clutter

  • Cirrus data is associated with your serial number.

How to use:

For terrain please navigate to databases >terrain > *insert from directory location below >Type is PTE > check active box

For clutter please navigate to databases >clutter > *insert from directory location below >Type is GCE >check active box

*still need attenuation file that correlates to the land use files

Attenuation file for US data:

Attenuation file for Global data:

Ensure you have a study grid set. Then navigate to databases> data boundary and check the box that says “Use geographic boundary to control which terrain/clutter files are used.” Then click the button set to study grid bounds.

 

Click okay and the data will begin downloading as show in the image below.

 

Directory location

For EGS 30m world data insert @egs\30m\egs_30m

  • possible reasons to clear:

    • corrupt files

    • new data/update

    • taking up too much space

Please Note: You cannot point SignalPro to the cache directory once the data has been downloaded
