The mesh tool lets you merge layers into a single super layer. Aside from making it visually cleaner, it also offers a simple download as a KMZ / SHP file or a hosted URL of your network coverage.
To use the mesh tool you must already have two or more layers in the system, ideally with the same resolution although it can work across multiple resolutions.
All mesh layers are created with an automatic filename based upon the network name and the number of child sites within it eg. BIG_NET_x225. They can be found within your archive under the 'mesh' network within your network list.
Method 1 - Mesh by network
Use the network name to create the layer. This allows you to keep adding sites one by one and to then easily update the super layer. This method is suitable for larger meshes greater than 10 sites.
Method 2 - Mesh from visible
With two or more sites layered on the map, click the 'Create layer from visible' button. This will create a small mesh based upon only those sites layered on the map at that point in time. This method is suitable for small meshes less than 10 sites.
Mesh layers can be viewed and downloaded offline from your archive.
If your mesh is very large (>200 sites) it will take a long time to process. The exact time is dependent on your data resolution. In this case you will be notified of a delay and advised to check your archive at a time in the future. This time could be several minutes.
The mesh tool is a cosmetic function which does not influence actual radio coverage. It promotes colours to make a single image from many smaller images. Colours are promoted based upon intensity so green is promoted over blue. The exception is red and orange which whilst 'stronger' in the colour key are not technically more intense so can be obscured by green.
For best results use either a monotone or green/blue schema only.
