Network planning and modelling tools require data defining terrain, buildings and vegetation data to enable the construction of radio path profiles and analysis of wanted and unwanted signals. Projects need data covering towns and cities, roads, railway lines and postcode sectors so that performance can be mapped to requirement.
ATDI can supply all types of map data for every country in the world.
DEM: a three-dimensional digital elevation (terrain only) model defining the environment. SRTM is a good example of terrain data
Clutter data: specifying ground usage such as buildings and vegetation in the environment
Buildings model: specifying the actual buildings and tree heights across the terrain
Raster images: variety of scales to link planning to reality
Vector data: defining railway lines, roads, points of interest, fibre, cable or any non-radio artefacts
Subscriber definitions: population, businesses, dwellings and other points or clusters describing centres of service demand
Data are defined primarily by scale (one datum point per linear distance on the ground) and extent (town, county, territory or region).
We constantly strive to deliver value for money by adding new and improved features to our software tools. All software licences with a valid maintenance contract have automatic access to a host of cartographic support services including:
ICS map server*
ICS map server is a comprehensive map data toolkit for the production and manipulation of cartographic data from diverse sources including satellite images, aerial photographs and paper maps. Data produced are compatible with the ICS suite of tools.
The worldwide builder service is available to all customers with a valid maintenance contract. This online portal enables users to define and create map data sets from a global repository of free-source mapping.
Users can access elevation models, clutter models and images in resolutions 20m and up. This map data is sourced from publicly available sources such as SRTM and Aster II and therefore does not attract royalties.
ICS online, a cloud application, enables users to upload outputs from the ICS suite of tools and share them with other users or across departments and with the end customer.
Bing maps licence:
This licence enables the user to overlay results from ICS suite of software tools. This organisation-wide licence enables users to access Bing maps from directly within the software.
Export to Google Earth:
As this feature suggests outputs from the ICS suite of software tools can be exported and overlaid on Google Earth maps.
*ICS map server has been discontinued but is available unsupported to existing customers with a valid maintenance contract.
