We are pleased to announce that we have released Terrain Analysis Package (TAP™) 7.6 with an all-new AutoCoverage Module. The AutoCoverage Module facilitates setting up multiple coverage studies using common study settings.
An AutoCoverage Study allows users to set up and execute sets of coverage studies using common study settings. The individual studies that comprise an AutoCoverage study are termed Cases. An AutoCoverage Case defines a fixed facility / mobile facility pair. TAP uses the Study Settings to run a coverage study for each Case. The Study Settings are common to all Cases within the AutoCoverage study. This module is particularly useful for multi-site systems. Fixed and Mobile facilities may be selected from the TAP facility databases or imported from a spreadsheet.
AutoCoverage studies are particularly useful for analyzing multi-site systems, such as public safety systems that have to cover a county or state. Rather than creating numerous individual coverage studies, a single AutoCoverage Study may contain Cases for every Fixed Facility (e.g., tower) and Mobile Facility pair of interest. The area coverage results may be easily displayed on a single map or used in an Aggregate Coverage study to combine the individual cases into a single study result.
