3D RF Data Visualization

Video playlist from Joint Interagency Field Exploration (JIFX) 2014 

  • Google Earth flyby: Raw RSSI data taken by a UAV in and around a simulated urban environment. The environment was reconstructed in Google Earth and the data plotted. Color ranges from -85 dBm (purple) to -51 dBm (red).
  • 3D RF Slices: Tool to visualize slices of interpolated 3-Dimensional RF data

RSSI Data

RSSI (received signal strength) data was captured at close and far rings around the transmitter. Data is then decimated and interpolated via the natural neighbor algorithm.
