Model Your Wireless Network

Plan Point-to-Point Microwave and Millimeter Wave Wireless Systems

Our Telecom Solution Suite leverages the best available NEXTMap® datasets for network planning. With the 5G rollout and competitive wireless landscape, telecom companies need link planning with high-spatial detail, global coverage, and excellent vertical accuracy. We help telecom companies get a competitive edge by assisting in network planning decisions, ensuring service performance, and saving time and money.

Intermap’s Viewshed product provides visibility and obstruction analysis based on NEXTMap One data. Simply specify transmitter and receiver height information to generate a detailed, colorized viewshed.

Infrastructure Monitoring and Remote Sensing Webinar

Intermap participated in a webinar hosted by our partner, UP42. Nathan Mercer, a Software Engineer at Intermap, presented The Versatility of Viewsheds for Line-of-Sight Analysis. Other presenters included AiDash, which presented about using satellite data for vegetation management, and Catalyst, which presented about monitoring ground deformation along 1000s of kilometers of infrastructure. Check out the webinar replay to learn how remote sensing can be a replacement for ground-based infrastructure monitoring.

Viewshed analysis is a versatile visual tool used in a variety of industries for site assessment and selection. We discussed two types of viewsheds: Basic and RF. Basic viewsheds are used for site evaluation in renewable energy and construction projects and for UAV mission planning. RF viewsheds combine line-of-sight and radio frequency algorithms for signal propagation analyses in telecommunications. High-resolution digital elevation models are key in generating accurate viewsheds. We explored the many use cases of viewshed analysis and factors that affect the results.
