Project Planning Markup

The Project Planning Markup can be used by engineers and planners to quickly sketch in proposed and current fiber, copper, and COAX network projects using a map. To simplify the sketching process, the designer selects the valid sketch types from a predefined list. The publisher of this solution has the ability to further add feature types to the predefined list.

The designs from this can then be shared with the organization to increase collaboration on early stage or proposed projects.


Project Planning Markup requires specific technical experience and software.
