Abstract

This paper presents a network planning aid for choosing antenna mounting locations in remote area using Geographical Information System (GIS) tools. It is important to determine the right location and to decide the optimal network equipment for remote monitoring applications with challenging terrain. Prior to deploying any wireless network, this tool allows the field engineer to study the geographical condition of the target location. The result demonstrate that GIS tool can be utilized or guide the planner for deployment of antenna mountings in remote area.
