SoftWright’s Terrain Analysis Package (TAP™) provides RF propagation calculations and analyses for a wide range of applications from 30 MHz to 30 GHz and above.TAP™ path and coverage studies can be made more accurate and more enlightening by including land use / clutter data, which tells TAP™ what is on top of the terrain. We are pleased to announce today that we have upgraded our international land use / clutter data to 2012 MODIS. We will continue to offer NLCD 2011 data for the U.S.A.
TAP™ 6.3 release 2534 (and later), with a maintenance subscription of 31 December 2015 (and later), now supports moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer (MODIS) international clutter / land use data. The previous Global Land Cover (GLC) data formed a 30×30-arcsecond grid. The MODIS Database is a 17-class land cover classification scheme that has been applied over a 15×15-arcsecond grid. There are MODIS datasets available for 2001-2012. SoftWright has available MODIS 2012 data in 12-by-16 degree tiles, available for purchase on a per-country basis. Each tile is a GeoTiff file in the WGS84 datum. Click here to read the complete FAQ.
