Creating an Off-Line Map for Use with Vision™ Software, AeroShield™ Software, and the Mobile InterferenceHunter™ MX280007A

January 9, 2020

In many applications, users will not have access to the Internet (e.g., Google Maps) for mapping functions used with the following Anritsu software programs:

• Vision Monitor/Vision Locate/Coverage Mapping (options 400/401/486 respectively)

• AeroShield MX280002A

• Mobile InterferenceHunter (MIH) MX280007A

For off-line mapping applications, Anritsu uses tiled pictures to create maps. Once created, the map can be zoomed in/out and moved side-to-side using a mouse pointer. To use the map for positioning and geo-location applications, the upper/lower and left/right corners of the map must be referenced by their corresponding GPS coordinates.

The purpose of the application note is to detail the procedure for creating these off-line maps. While there are several open source options for tile map construction, this application note will be using Map Puzzle to detail the method for incorporating these maps into the Anritsu software application. Map Puzzle is an open source mapping program that can be downloaded from the Internet free of charge.
