SoftWright has released the Terrain Analysis Package (TAP) Version 6.3, which enables mixed batch processing of accelerated and standard coverage studies via the new TAP 6.3 Run Button and offers additional accelerated propagation modules. These features further improve the efficiency and productivity of TAP customers.
Recall that the release of TAP 6.2 featured an all-new calculation engine that drastically improved execution speed for certain propagation modules, such as Longley-Rice and Bullington. Study execution times in benchmark accelerated cases were reduced by 80 percent. Combining accelerated studies with solid state drive data storage reduced study times by 98 percent. The release of TAP 6.3 accelerates additional popular propagation modules. The following propagation modules are now accelerated in TAP 6.3: Longley-Rice (aka Irregular Terrain Model), Bullington, Okumura, Rounded Obstacle (new in TAP 6.3), Shadow Mapping (new in TAP 6.3) and Egli (new in TAP 6.3).
The TAP 6.3 Run Button now allows batch mode processing of mixed accelerated and standard HDCoverage studies with a single button click. Simply create and save a set of area coverage studies using any appropriate parameters. Then use the TAP 6.3 Run Button and TAP will execute all of the selected coverage studies starting with the accelerated studies and then completing the standard studies. All coverage study results are saved and displayed in HDMapper. www.softwright.com
