Colors and Value Ranges

Using this tab, you can configure color schemes, drawing styles, and value ranges used in visualizations overlaid on top of the floor plan or site map. Use the Survey path color selection boxes to choose the colors to be used for drawing active and inactive paths. An active path is the path along which you are currently walking, marking your location on the map. Inactive paths are the paths from previously performed surveys.

You can also choose between several Visualization schemes that will be used for visualizations, such as signal level or expected PHY rate. Checking the Smooth colors box makes the transition between colors smooth. Checking the Invert colors box inverts the colors in the selected visualization scheme. If you would like to see the contours between areas of different color, check the Contour box.

Using the Value Ranges section, you can configure the range of values represented by the selected color scheme for the Signal Level, Signal-to-Noise Ratio, Signal-to-Interference Ratio, Expected PHY Rate, Actual PHY Rate, TCP Upstream and Downstream Rate, UDP Upstream and Downstream Rate, and Round-trip Time visualizations.. For example, if you selected the color scheme that ranges from red to blue and a signal level value range from -80 dBm to -30 dBm, any area where the signal level is equal to or below -80 dBm will be shown in red, and any area where the signal level is equal to or above -30 dBm will be shown in blue. Additionally, you can adjust the Steps value (i.e., the number of distinct colors to be used). Using the same example, the entire value range from -80 to -30 dBm would be 50 dBm; setting the Steps value to 10 would mean that every 5 dBm, a new color would be used to display the signal level and the total number of distinct colors zones would be 10. Setting the Steps value to 20 would double the number of distinct colors, making the color overlay much smoother.
