The Coverage Processing solution provides a repeatable business process for the cleaning and simplifying of RF signal strength data. The results can then be shared with your ArcGIS organization and used by sales and customer service to determine signal strength for a location in the service area. Additionally, a public facing application can be configured for customers to learn about coverage in their area.
The model takes in layers of raster engineering data output from various RF planning tools and processes each into a cleaned and smoothed product that will make sense to consumers. The coverage data is clipped at user controlled power levels and areas of insignificant coverage are either removed or merged with other areas of surrounding coverage. A generalization and simplification process is applied before creating a final vector polygon output for use in viewing and locating applications.
Coverage Processing requires specific technical experience and software.
