Linux Software Map: SPLAT!


  • Version: 1.0.1
  • Entered-date: 2002-04-22
  • Description: SPLAT! is a terrestrial RF path analysis utility for Linux. SPLAT! provides distances, bearings, and geometric line-of-sight path conditions between specified locations, as well as coverage areas of transmitters and repeater systems as a function of antenna height and location in situations where terrain is the primary limiting factor in coverage. SPLAT! produces annotated topographic maps showing areas of coverage, shadow regions, and generates graphs showing terrain and elevation profiles between the transmitting and receiving locations being analyzed through gnuplot. Minimum antenna height requirements may also be determined if a line-of-sight path does not exist between the transmitter and receiver under the conditions specified. SPLAT! requires gnuplot version 3.7, libbzip-1.0.1 or later, and zlib, as well as an application capable of displaying PPM graphics (xv, ImageMagick, xpaint, The GIMP, etc.).
