Orchestrating network performance | 31

Changing the analysis area


Choosing your area of interest

Statistics will be calculated only within the region chosen in the Analysis
Area drop-down menu.
New areas can be created by using the Areas function under the
Project Data category in Project Explorer.

Ignoring invalid bins


Excluding null values

Depending on the type of statistics that want to be generated, it


may be interesting not to include points where the layer being
analyzed has no values populated.
In that case, the Exclude null values checkbox can be checked.
Orchestrating network performance | 33

Applying filters to ignore unwanted bins


Selecting a grid to filter

The grid you query can be an existing analysis layer or a any other
grid you have created/generated before.
Remember you can use the Areas function in Mentum Planet to
create grids based on existing polygons.

Applying filters to ignore unwanted bins


Selecting a grid to filter

Enable the Apply area filter checkbox and browse for the grid
(numeric or classified) on which you will be applying the filter.

Applying filters to ignore unwanted bins


Selecting a grid to query

The output file will exclude results for any bins where the
value of the grid is Buildings, so that your stats reflect
outdoor points only.
Orchestrating network performance | 37

Viewing the stats


Sorting and exporting

In the Report Preview, results will be shown in absolute (km)


and relative (%) numbers, and can be sorted in ascending or
descending order.
This report can be exported to Excel or CSV format.

Orchestrating network performance | 38

Creating graphs
PDF/CDF

Highlight one of the columns in the report and click the Generate
Statistics button
to create a PDF or CDF of the results in
that column.
Orchestrating network performance | 39

Creating graphs
X vs. Y

You can also select multiple columns in the Report Previewer and click on the
Show Graph button
to display a graph that will compare the multiple
columns chosen.
When choosing the best server, it can be used to see the ranking of all sectors
Orchestrating network performance
on a particular metric.

Visualizing your results


Creating Sector Display Schemes and Labels

By using the Sector Display Scheme button , you can colorcode each sector based on its stats.
There is also a Label button
to help you display the per-sector
values on the map.
