Hi all,

I'm not entirely sure if I'm asking in the right section but I could use a bit of help if at all possible.

Our company are trying to figure out the best way to perform a survey based on RF signal strength around various streets. We will recieve data in a text file which contains the following information :

EASTING: NORTHING: SIG_LEVELdBm
567999 : 189960 : -46.85

Now the idea is to plot on a map in the specific gps co-ordinate a coloured dot which indicates the signal strength, for example red may indicate a weak signal and green signal may indicate a strong signal.

Does anyone have any idea what software could be use to perform this.

Thanks in advance for any help given Smile

Thanks
Dave

Look at Google Earth but you might need to consider using Lat/ Long rather than Eastings/ Northings although these figures can be translated from one format to another quite easily - Mike

If you can't find an off-the-peg solution, send me a personal mail and I might be able to develop something
