Hi Keith,

In short, yes it is.

I had a quick look at Splat and it appears to generae analyses as raster
layers which are almost certainily fixed to some real-world coordinate
space. This means any GIS (like the FOSS QuantumGIS) will be able to
overlay your signal coverage on the Topo250 data.

However I notice that Topo250 is published as a convenient WMS service:

If you want to do a little more work up-front to publish your analyses
as WMS service, it would be a pretty trivial OpenLayers project to
overlay your results with that or any other WMS (like Open Street Map).
Here's an example overlaying OSM on the OpenLayers base:

Hi List,

I've installed splat V1.3.0 and found it quite helpful when trying to
maximise my nextg signal in a difficult rural location.

Can someone tell me if it is possible to plot transmitter signal
coverage on GeoScience Australia 1:250,000 maps instead of the digital
elevation topography models. If so how?
