Maps used for the interference hunting software can be embedded in the application using OpenStreetMap™.
Users can develop their own map with OpenStreetMap using these simple to use instructions.
Once maps are made, they can then be incorporated into the MX280007A software by dragging the map file on to the interference hunting software application window. Maps can also be added by clicking on the Settings tab at the top of the MX280007A software and selecting Map Source/Open Source Maps.
Alternatively, tablets with cellular modems attached for internet access can download Google Maps or Baidu Maps for their application.
For full instructions on how to get up and running, use the Mobile InterferenceHunter User Guide located in the Library tab. © OpenStreetMap contributors copyright page
Instructions for Making Maps
Use the OpenStreetMap web site to download your map. Once on the OpenStreetMap site:
- In the search box, located in the upper left, type in the city that you are looking for. Click on Go.
- After you you have selected the desired area from the displayed list, click "Export" located at the top left corner of the page above the search box.
- To the left of the screen, below the Export button, click on "Overpass API".
- The map data will be downloaded to your PC.
There are two ways to get the map into Mobile InterferenceHunter:
Click, drag, and drop the map file onto Mobile InterferenceHunter. The file will be converted and opened, ready for use. (Cannot drop on top of Google Maps.)
Open the downloaded map from the Mobile InterferenceHunter File menu.
- From the main menu choose: Settings|Map Source|Open Source Maps.
- Browse to your download folder.
- Select 'OpenStreetMap archive' in the file type dropdown.
- Find the file just downloaded and select Open.
When you open in Mobile InterferenceHunter software, a dialog box pops up to enter the city and country. Then the map is converted to our required format and opened in the software program.
The converted files are saved so that the next time you open that location, no additional formatting is needed.
