In just a couple of clicks you can load your area map, point to your location on the map and start collecting Wi-Fi data around you. NetSpot for Mac creates heatmaps of your wireless network, showing you dead zones without coverage, so that you can place hotspots (Access Points) correctly. Using the visualized map of collected wireless data, you can also see channel overlap, which will help you to optimize your Wi-Fi network.
Visualize Your Wireless Network
Efficiency-wise, your Wi-Fi network needs hotspots placed correctly and radio channels assigned in a proper way: the visual Wi-Fi map you get thanks to NetSpot lets you see all dead zones without coverage and optimize hotspots' placements; you can see channels' load and decide how to use them ideally.
Wireless Network Planning
