Day Population Map (Dynamic Model) provides the density ratios between the urban classes taking into account a mean average of activity in urban, commercial, and industrial areas.
Day Population Map considers people's movement within an average business day.
The day population distribution matrix represents the maximum expected overall population density by a cell in the daytime, assuming all people are present in their assigned workplaces or other locations and the rest remains at home.
The socio-economic and demographic factors, classifications of buildings, and built-up areas that are taken into account for Day Population Map production are the following:
- Industrial zones: factories, plants, and ports
- Big office complexes and buildings
- Universities and colleges etc.
- Villages far from towns, cities, and industrial zones
- Suburb zones of large cities
- Roads, weighted by distance from major roads
- Traffic flow
Probability coefficients are assigned to each value of each input factor, and a composite probability coefficient is calculated for each item of the Day Population Map.
PopMap can be delivered in any popular RF planning tool format (Atoll, Planet, ISC Telecom etc.)
