Coordinates of RF propagation data
Transmitter Site Service Areas
Define names and locations of sites around Boston.
names = ["Fenway Park","Faneuil Hall","Bunker Hill Monument"]; lats = [42.3467,42.3598,42.3763]; lons = [-71.0972,-71.0545,-71.0611];
Create array of transmitter sites.
txs = txsite("Name", names,... "Latitude",lats,... "Longitude",lons, ... "TransmitterFrequency",2.5e9);
Compute received power data for each transmitter site.
maxr = 20000; pd1 = coverage(txs(1),"MaxRange",maxr); pd2 = coverage(txs(2),"MaxRange",maxr); pd3 = coverage(txs(3),"MaxRange",maxr);
Compute rectangle containing locations of all data.
locs = [location(pd1); location(pd2); location(pd3)]; [minlatlon, maxlatlon] = bounds(locs);
Create grid of locations over rectangle.
gridlength = 300; latv = linspace(minlatlon(1),maxlatlon(1),gridlength); lonv = linspace(minlatlon(2),maxlatlon(2),gridlength); [lons,lats] = meshgrid(lonv,latv); lats = lats(:); lons = lons(:);
Get data for each transmitter at grid locations using interpolation.
v1 = interp(pd1,lats,lons); v2 = interp(pd2,lats,lons); v3 = interp(pd3,lats,lons);
Create propagation data containing minimum received power values.
minReceivedPower = min([v1 v2 v3],,2,"includenan"); pd = propagationData(lats,lons,"MinReceivedPower",minReceivedPower);
Plot minimum received power, which shows the weakest signal received from any transmitter site. The area shown may correspond to the service area of triangulation using the three transmitter sites.
sensitivity = -110; contour(pd,"Levels",sensitivity:-5,"Type","power")
pd — Propagation data
propagationData object (default)
Propagation data, specified as a
datalocation — Location coordinates of data points
Location of antenna site, returned as an
2 matrix with each element
unit in degrees. M is the number of rows in the data
table with valid latitude and longitude values. Duplicate locations are not
lat — Latitude of data points
Latitude of data points, returned as an
1 vector with each element
unit in degrees.
lon — Longitude of data points
Longitude of data points, returned as an
1 matrix with each element
unit in degrees. The output is wrapped so that the values are in the range
