Calibrating the floor plan: you must calibrate the imported floor plan to ensure that everything is accurately calculated when conducting the survey. Our tip is to use the largest measurement on the site as it reduces the risks of errors if you’re slightly off with the dimension accuracy.
Choose the path you walk: make sure you plan the path you walk when conducting an onsite survey as this will significantly influence your data collection. Two top tips are to walk the edges of the room and walk either side of obstacles.

Select your scan pattern: use your survey software to choose the right scan pattern that works for you and the site you’re surveying. Think about whether or not you should scan using all the channels available or just selected ones. This will vary depending on the location and the user behavior of the people that tend to work on the site.
Signal propagation: lastly, ensure that you set the right signal propagation value to fit the specific site. This essentially helps figure out how far your survey software assumes that any reading it receives is applicable. It’s impossible to walk every single inch within a site because of obstacles, etc. So, this value helps to create a heatmap of sorts that offers more accuracy when conducting the survey. It’s essential to do this before you start carrying out your site survey.
