A reliable 3D map drives robust networking planning

Whether you’re an RF engineer, network planner, or line installer, integrate high resolution imagery into your workflow to keep tabs on your assets, track rollouts, and accurately plan 5G networks without wasting resources on endless site visits. And when you do need to send staff on site, use current imagery to allocate your field crew efficiently and keep them informed with mobile access to updated maps.

Expand existing networks

Use high-res aerial imagery to inspect street furniture and property detail. Plan wire placement, mobile tower positioning, and new equipment to be integrated into the existing network.

Measure line, area, radius, height, and width, and export annotated and georeferenced maps for reports to stakeholders.

Ensure accurate 5G planning with current 3D data

Support dense network simulation and rapidly scaleable coverage expansion with high resolution DSM and true ortho.

Accurately plan network device placement with elevation profiles, viewshed analysis, and Fresnel calculations derived from current, high-res 3D models.

Interpret surface textures to predict propagation patterns.
