TAP™ Mapper is an analysis and visualization software tool for TAP™ customers with software maintenance dates of July 1, 2016 or later. It is not a replacement for HDMapper at this time. The HDMapper product remains integrated with TAP™ software for viewing and analyzing coverage study results. However, as shown below, TAP™ Mapper is an all-new product with an enhanced user experience. It is available via a separate download from our downloads page and it requires a new license key. Please feel free to try out the demo version, watch our Intro to TAP™ Mapper video and, if eligible, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request your TAP™ Mapper license key.
TAP™ Mapper features
- Web Basemap Layers – The first item that existing TAP™ customers will notice about TAP™ Mapper is the new web basemaps. For customers using TAP™ Mapper from an internet-connected computer, these web basemaps will obviate the need to build a basemap using a set of shapefile layers as is currently the case with HDMapper. Basemap selections include Open Street Maps, MapQuest OSM and MapQuest Aerial Imagery, plus basemap layers from the USGS National Map.
- Additional 3D Export Options – TAP™ maps may now be exported as KML files with georeferenced images (as is currently done with HDMapper) or as standalone KML or KMZ files with embedded shape information for improved 3D viewing at all zoom levels.
- Improved Map Annotations – Map annotations, such as Transmit Facility Markers and Range Circles, as well as text and drawing elements, may now be added to the map using a more modern interface for styling and customization.
- Enhanced Presentation of Results – Each map layer now includes an Analysis Report that numerically and graphically summarizes the data in the layer and produces a report that may be edited, saved, and printed as required.
