Determining Building Height for Antenna Placement

In an urban scenario, antennas are usually placed at the top of a building. When defining an antenna site, you require the height of the building to ensure that the antenna is placed above the building not inside.

  1. Determine the height of a specific building using one of the following workflows:
    • On the Display menu, click Balloon Tips.
    • On the Utility toolbar, click the Balloon tip icon.
    The mouse cursor changes from a “+” to an “X”.
  2. Hover with the mouse over a building to view the building height in a balloon tip.

    Figure 1. The height of the building at the mouse cursor is displayed in a balloon tip.
  3. Repeat Step 1 to disable the balloon-tip mode.
