Floor Plan / Site Map

This central area of the application window is used for displaying the floor plan or site map. When you perform a passive or active site survey, you use the floor plan to mark your current location. As you move and click on the plan, TamoGraph will show your walkabout path and the area you have covered, as shown on the illustration below:

walkpath large

The application status bar displays the map dimensions and your current coordinates when you hover the mouse over the map. To zoom in our out, use the mouse scroll wheel or the Zoom button on the status bar. To pan the map, use the vertical and horizontal scroll bars or press and hold the space bar and drag the map while holding the left mouse button. If you are using a computer with a multi-touch display, you can use the two-finger pinch zoom gesture to zoom in or out and the two-finger pan gesture to pan.

When you are through surveying the site, you can use the Visualization drop-down list on the tool bar to have TamoGraph display data visualizations for your site (e.g., signal level or AP coverage areas).
