Brief Description

The software is used to display geographic data on digital vector and raster maps. R&S®MapView is primarily designed for radiomonitoring and radiolocation applications. The software presents online results in a fast, optimized manner.

Displaying direction finding and radiolocation results on maps is essential for the interception of radio signals and also for direction finding evaluations in radiomonitoring systems. Examples are the transmitter-site display to support DF evaluation or a cartographic display to support operational and tactical analysis. The map display in conjunction with running fixes is especially useful during mobile operations and allows the fast location of the tracked target (homing). Further applications include the display of status information for all the stations in a radiomonitoring system, the visualization of database information and the display of results in coverage measurement systems.

    • Free use of OpenStreetMap (OSM) and other publicly available map data
    • Use of map data from the market leaders in the field of geographic information systems
  • Generation of user-specific maps
    • Georeferencing of raster images
    • Creation of map tiles according to the TMS map tiles convention
  • Integrated situation display
    • Editor for situation display
    • Saving/loading of situation layers
  • System integration
    • Interfaces to the R&S®RAMON, R&S®ARGUS 6.1 and SatMon applications from Rohde & Schwarz
    • Open interface for integration into customer applications
