Introduction


TTNmapper (http://www.ttnmapper.org/) is a great tool to measure network coverage. Since many nodes do not have any possibility to be location-aware, you need to use a clever trick to be able to use every possible node for performing measurements. TTNmapper does.

The basic idea is that your smartphone and a node that was selected in the smartphone app are both close each other. This allows TTNmapper to measure the node's signal strength and combine this with the smart phone's location. It's available for both android and iOS. This recipe shows how to setup the android version.

Special thanks goes to jpmeijers who is the creator of the tool!
