[Display software for input data and results including tools for generating administrative declarations and performing planning calculations (30/03/2006)]

[Description]
[The RRC Display software allows an operator to consult the input data and calculated results. The operator can perform basic queries on the input data and results for specific investigation purposes and additionally export the selected data in a number of predetermined data formats.
The software also incorporates a tool which assists in the generation of administrative declarations. It is also possible to perform planning calculations on selected data.
Requirements for using the software include a standard personal computer (PC) with Windows NT, 2000 or XP operating system, with screen resolution of 1 024 by 768 pixels or higher, MS Access 2000 or more recent, MDAC 2.6 (2.7 recommended) and .NET Framework 1.1. The latter two items will be installed automatically if not present already. ]


[Installation]
  • [Download the latest version of the software]
  • [or ftp it using your TIES account and user name from ties.itu.int and an ftp client (do not try to use your browser!) in the directory:
    /u/itu-r/ede/rrc/rrc_display_software/]
  • [The package is distributed in one file called rrc_display.zip. It is suggested to create a specific sub-directory (i.e. ...\RRCDisplay\) and unzip the setup files therein. The next step consists of running the program Setup.exe following the instructions on the screen until the setup process is successfully completed (by default the software will be installed in subdirectory C:\RRC06\Display).]
  • [It will be necessary to download and install the databases, containing the input data and calculated results, separately. These databases may be saved in the directory C:\RRC06\Display\data. Using a CDROM installation procedure the required databases are installed by default.]
  • [The additional databases can also be downloaded from the:] - [RRC-04 - Draft Plan - First synthesis] - [RRC-04 - Draft Plan - Second synthesis]
  • [The additional databases can also be downloaded from the TIES ftp server in the directories /u/itu-r/ede/rrc/rrc_draft_plan]

[Langues]
[The software is available in English and partly in Arabic, French, Russian and Spanish.]


[Version History]
  • [Version 1.6.4]
    • [Released 16 June 2006]
    • [Planning Exercise Tool]
[Resolved issue with preparation of results database.]

  • [Version 1.6.3]
    • [Released 13 June 2006]
    • [Plan Results Display]
[The label and sorting function for tv channel have been fixed]

  • [Version 1.6.2]
  • [Version 1.5.2]
    • [Released 11 June 2006]
    • [Plan Results Display]
[A corrected Draft Plan database is released. The previous one did not have indexes and had a wrong rrc_sub_area table which prevented allotments to be correctly displayed. Plan entries in the range 186 MHz-230 MHz had incorrect assigned frequencies (the TV channel or frequency block was correct).The remark fields in the Detail Form for digital equirements have been corrected. The same fields are now displayed also in the Summary Table.]

  • [Version 1.6.1]
    • [Released 10 June 2006, with the results of the 4th iteration.]
    • [Plan Results Display]
[A specially prepared database is available, showing the plan entries with new or updated digital requirements data fields:
- 3 remarks fields
- assigned frequency
- TV channel (for DVB-T)
- frequency block (for T-DAB)]

  • [General Analysis Results/Compatibility Status]
[The administrative declarations column may show "CAD" in the case of a conditional administrative declaration as seen from the point of view of the affected party]

  • [Complementary Analysis]
[Detailed complementary analysis results can now be calculated from the complementary analysis screen for the affected analogue assignment.
Incompatibilities between plan entries and analogue assignmentswhere the analogue assignment was identified in a BC6 notice as per the latest interpretation, are marked as "BC6" in the column used for administrative declarations. Such incompatibilities will not cause the affected administration to appear in the list of administrations in the first remarks column.
Conditional declarations are identified with the code "CAD".]

  • [Version 1.6.0]
    • [Released 6 June 2006, with the results of the 3rd iteration]
    • [General Analysis Results/Compatibility Status]
[The "Administrative Declaration" Yes/No column in tables with analysis results for digital-to-digital compatibility has been renamed to "Administrative Declaration or Acceptance Margin Declaration". The existence of an acceptance margin declaration for a given incompatibility is indicated in by the code "AM", while an administrative declaration is shown as "AD". If there is neither, the value is "No".
In this iteration, a certain number of requirements are shown as having no available channels and no incompatibilities. This is not a defect in the Planning Interface.]

  • [Complementary Analysis]
[The "Selected records for complementary analysis results" table now has two additional fields showing the number of assignments and the list of administrations for which coordination is required. (Note: Administrative declarations were not applied to complementary analysis results in the third iteration)
Complementary analysis results can now be investigated looking from the point of view of analogue assignments. (Note: Detailed complementary analysis results are not yet available in this mode.) ]

  • [Exporting Images]
[The vertical toolbar to left side of the map display now shows a "diskette" button allowing for saving the image as a JPEG or BMP file]

  • [Version 1.5.9]
    • [Released 2 June 2006]
    • [Input Data Display]
[When viewing antenna pattern diagrams, the screen can now be resized to enlarge each antenna pattern individually, if needed.
Note: As a reminder, the input data details for requirements and analogue or other services assignments, such as antenna patterns, may be viewed from the Planning Exercise tool or the Administrative Declarations tool, at the point when lists of requirements/assignments are displayed as the result of a selection from a database. Double-clicking on the row in the table will open the corresponding input data screen]

  • [Resolved issues]
[Planning Exercise Tool - Planning exercises where the analogue reference situation was not needed were failing.
Planning Exercise Tool - Administrative declarations were not being properly applied in the synthesis. There was a problem with converting file formats, not a problem with the synthesis itself.]

  • [Version 1.5.8]
    • [Released 1 June 2006]
    • [Complementary Analysis Results]
[Resolved issues with producing detailed complementary analysis results. The uncompressed size of the installation files has increased by 200 MB because the digital requirements binaryfiles are now also included, since they are required for the detailed complementary analysis results.
Administrative declarations can now be generated from the complementary analysis results screen.
The margin is now shown in the table below the map.]

  • [Input Data Display]
[Long administrative declarations remarks can now be viewed properly by widening the respective table using the vertical splitter in the middle of the screen. ]

  • [Version 1.5.7]
    • [Complementary Analysis Results]
    • [Released 30 May 2006 with the results of the second iteration,including complementary analysis results. ]
[The complementary analysis results menu item is available from any menu that offers the general analysis results menu item.]

  • [Planning Exercise Tool]
[The planning exercise tool has been modified to minimize the size of the files created in each planning exercise directory.
The selection of the reference situation folder is now more user friendly]

  • [Service Areas/General Analysis/Complementary Analysis]
[The right-click menu in the map now shows "Identify area" as the fist option for each requirement/assignment. Clicking on this menu entry flashes the respective area/transmitter briefly.The menu labels for digital requirements now include the notice type. ]

  • [Resolved Issues]
  • [General analysis results - Resolved issue with incorrect starting display for requirements in Band III (not all requirements were shown when the form was first shown).]
  • [Version 1.5.6]
    • [Released 29 May 2006 with the results of the second iteration]
    • [Complementary Analysis Results]
[A new option is available from the View menu, to investigatecomplementary analysis results from the point of view of digital requirements. Detailed complementary analysis results can be produced similarly to the detailed compatibility analysis results in the General Analysis Results screen.
Note: Complementary analysis results are not included with the first release of the results of the second iteration, but they will be made available as soon as possible.]

  • [Planning Exercise Tool]
[The new reference situation MDB and binary files are included with this installation.]

  • [Distance and Bearings Measurement Tool]
[After clicking on the first point, the distance and bearing now are shown in real-time while the cross-hair pointer is moving.]

  • [Version 1.5.5]
    • [Released 24 May 2006]
    • [Planning Exercise Tool]
[The version of the EBU planning software included with the planning exercise tool has been updated.
The ability to select a subset and/or to modify the analogue TV assignments´ or the other primary services assignments´ reference situation has been removed. Please use the respective pre-calculated reference situation binary files provided with the CD-ROM installation for version 1.5.4. Updated binary files will be provided with the next CD-ROM on 27 May 2006.
Reminder: For those administrations with requirements marked as conversions from existing analogue assignments, the planning software requires the presence of the analogue reference situation pre-calculated binary files.
It is no longer mandatory to run the analogue-to-digital and digital-to-analogue analysis when selection the option to run the synthesis.
When specifying the CSV file to use for administrative declarations,it is no longer necessary to click the "Add" button to indicate that the file whose name is shown first in the drop-down list is to be used, if it is the only CSV file to be used in the planning exercise. ]

  • [Channel Distribution Statistics]
[The previously displayed count of unsuccessful requirements is now subdivided into the number of requirements without any available channels (for which incompatibilities with other services assignments should be investigated and resolved), and the number of requirements with available channel(s) but with no assigned channel. ]

  • [Distance and Bearings Measurement Tool]
[A new mode of operation is available when working with the map. In addition to zoom and pan buttons, a measurement tool buttonis shown just below these buttons. When pressed, the cursor changes to a hand with crosshairs, and allows the user to click on two points in order to obtain the distance between them and the bearing from point A to point B, as well as the bearing from point B to point A. All this data is shown in a pop-up window from where it can be copied to the operating system´s clipboard.
Note: In order to make space for the new button, the "Show input data" button in General Analysis Results has been removed. To show input data for the requirement under investigation, use the active link for the administration unique identified (in the upper left corner of the window).]

  • [CNG Geographical Area Selection]
[Default behaviour has been modified to show active CNG selection checkboxes, even if some geographic areas for the particular CNG have no requirements present in the database (example: AZR in CNG2). ]

  • [Resolved Issues]
  • [Resolved problem with deleting administrative declarations in Administrative Declarations tool]
  • [Resolved problem with the General Analysis menu option that was failing on certain computers]
  • [Resolved problem with file selection drop-down list for the planning exercise tool administrative declarations database and CSV file selector (copying and pasting a file name had no effect)]
  • [Resolved issue 5.2.4 from the CEPT document "SUGGESTIONS FOR THE SOFTWARE FOR THE DISPLAY AND ANALYSIS OF THE RESULTS OF PLANNING EXERCISES/PLANS" dated 20 May 2006 (problem with selecting the administrative declarations file when generating declarations from analysis results)]
  • [Service Areas map now properly displays service areas selectedusing the geographic coordinates (rectangle)]
  • [Version 1.5.4]
    • [Released with the results of the first RRC-06 planning iteration, 22 May 2006]
    • [MIG Analysis]
[Please see help page for this new option (View->MIG Analysis).]

  • [Geographic Coordinates]
[The selection criteria for geographic coordinates has been changed to a rectangle (two pairs of coordinates). There is the option to select the coordinates of the rectangular area from a map, by pressing the mouse button and dragging, in a diagonal motion toward the left or right lower corner of the rectangle. The map will zoom in to the rectangle, and a red outline will be visible.
When the option to display coordinates in any map is active, the cursor now changes to a cross-hair, to allow for better precision when reading coordinates off the map]

  • [Service Areas/General Analysis]
[Reintroducing default behavior on clicking on a row in a table -the corresponding contour will flash briefly. (Except when the clicked cell is the one with the "Generate Administrative Declaration" checkbox.) ]

  • [Planning Exercise Tool]
  • [The planning exercise tool has been updated to include the most recent version of the EBU planning software.]
  • [Version 1.5.3]
[Released for the first day of RRC-06, 15 May 2006. Please also see the notes for version 1.5.2 below (this version was not made available on the ITU website).]

  • [Linked Requirements Support]
[Support for investigating incompatibilities involving linked sets of requirements has been improved, as follows: ]

  • [Input Data Display]
[When viewing input data details for a requirement that is part of an SFN, the tables where all the parts of the SFN are listed have been enhanced to offer viewing of general analysis results of the individual requirements as an option from the context menu (right-click menu).]

  • [Compatibility Status]
[New columns have been added to display the administration unique identifier of the allotment to which a given assignmentis linked (in cases where the two are not notified as a single frequency network), for both the affected and the interfering requirements.
The context menu now offers options to view either input data details or general analysis results for either the affected or the interfering requirement.]

  • [General Analysis Results]
[If the requirement under investigation is part of an SFN, theSFN identifier text becomes an active link. Clicking on the link opens the window with the list of all parts of that SFN, as described above.
If the requirement under investigation is an assignment linked to an allotment, or vice versa, the active link will show the related requirement´s administration unique identifier.
Clicking on the link will show the general analysis results for the related requirement.
If the requirement is a stand-alone assignment or allotment,the text will read "Not linked" and will not be clickable. ]

  • [Administrative Declarations]
[Support for the new format of administrative declarations (see CR/254 addendum 1) has been added throughout the RRC06 Planning Interface, as follows:]

  • [Administrative Declarations Tool]
[Administrative declarations files in the format for the draft plan can still be opened and edited, but they are saved to disk in the new format.
Declarations may be marked as intended to be suppressed or asconditional, by clicking the corresponding checkboxes in the table. Internal declarations (self-declarations) may not be marked as conditional.
If the declaration is to be deleted from the table/file, the rows to be deleted first have to be selected/highlighted using the mouse or the keyboard, after which they can be deleted using the Delete key on the keyboard, or from the Edit menu, or from the pop-up context menu in the table.
Columns may not be rearranged but the column widths will be preserved if the columns are resized.
Sorting is available. Click on the column headings to open the sorting preferences window.
In-place editing of remarks is available. Click in the table cell to edit. A tiny pencil icon will appear in the row heading during editing. Please make sure to click somewhere else in the table and make the pencil icon disappear before saving the file, otherwise your last change may not be saved. ]

  • [Planning Exercise Tool]
[If administrative declarations are used for a planning exercise, an additional informational window will appear, showing the list of declarations. The declarations in the list are those that have been validated against the input data for the planning exercise. ]

  • [Input Data Display]
[When viewing input details for digital requirements, the administrative declarations table now shows whether the declaration is conditional and the remarks, if any.]

  • [General Analysis Results]
[When viewing digital-to-digital general analysis results, the first column of the table is a new checkbox which is used to mark incompatibilities to be declared as compatible.Right-clicking in the table will show a new command to generate administrative declarations corresponding to the marked analysis results. The declarations are always created from the point of view of the requirement under investigation,even if it is the interferer.
Note: The previous default action on clicking on a row in the table, to highlight the corresponding area in the map, is now available as the first command in the context menu, since it conflicted with the presence of checkboxes. ]

  • [Compatibility Status]
[Selection Criteria]

[Administrative declarations are generated in the same way asabove in the compatibility status window. The button that was available for that purpose has been removed to save screen space. In this window, declarations are created fromthe point of view of the administration on the left, which is always the affected party.]

  • [Selection Criteria]
[It is now possible to select administrations and/or geographic areas from a map by double clicking within the respective area.The map window is launched by clicking on new button next to the list of administrations or geographic areas.
Easy access to group selection of CNG primary members is available from the map. This only applies to selection by geographical areas, not by administration]

  • [Detailed Analysis Results]
[Digital-to-Analogue TV detailed analysis is now also available.For this particular type of analysis, it is necessary to provide the location of the binary files produced during the original calculation. If the calculation was done as part of a planning exercise, the binary files will be automatically detected if the database is still in the same directory as the other outputs of the planning exercise. If the calculation was done for the entire planning area, the directory to be specified is the one with the analogue reference situation binary files, such as in C:\RRC06 \Display\planningExercise\analogue_ref_sit_draft_plan.
The latest analogue reference situation binary files will be included in the next version of the planning interface for the second week of the conference. ]

  • [Planning Exercise Tool]
  • [Temporary Limitation]
[The version of the planning software installed with the planning exercise tool is the one for the draft plan. Therefore, any calculations performed within the planning exercise tool may not match the results of the first iteration for the conference. The most recent version of the planning software will be installed with the next version of the planning interface for the second week of the conference.
Note: The definitions for allotments where the allotment area is the entire geographic area have been updated to include changes for the first iteration. ]

  • [Help System]
[Help pages are available in 5 languages.]

  • [Version 1.5.2]
    • [Input Data Display]
    • [Coord_a and coord_o fields are no longer shown]
    • [Self-coordination is shown as yes/no instead of a checkbox]
    • [When connecting to the online database, information about the version of the input data is displayed after connecting]
    • [Detailed Analysis Results]
[When right-clicking on a data table row in the General Analysisscreen, a new option is available, to calculate the details of that particular incompatibility.]

  • [Temporary Limitation]
[Digital-to-Analogue TV Broadcasting incompatibility details are not yet obtainable.]

  • [Compatibility Analysis]
[The compatibility analysis functionality has been completed to include options for Analogue TV Broadcasting and Other Primary Services. In addition, the column headings in the data tables have been slightly changed after comments from CEPT members. ]

  • [Data Tables with Analysis Results]
[The sorting functionality has been improved in order to remove the limitation when sorting by Site/Allotment Name. Now the Site Names and Allotment Names are sorted as one column, and not as two separate columns. (Note: This in no way means that the format of the DT/DS notices will change.
These data fields remain separate in the input requirements database.)
If your preferred sort order included the Site Name and/or Allotment Name, it will be reset to default. This is a one-time inconvenience.]

  • [Export to HTML/Excel/CSV]
[Along with the improvements to the data grid above, the export functionality has been slightly modified to ensure consistency between column headings in the data tables and the export output. As a consequence, some column headings in the export output have changed. This concerns only the label, not the order of columns.]

  • [Digital Requirement Notice Type Data in Analysis Results]
[Where necessary, the notice type of the digital requirements is now also displayed in data tables. This impacts the order of columns in the export output.
When viewed on screen, the new columns will appear at the far right of the data tables, in order not to affect the existing preferred column positions and widths. ]

  • [Installation]
[The Setup program no longer requires administrator privileges.(Except the first time, and then only if the .NET framework is not already present on the PC). This should allow users to install updates with much less trouble.]

  • [Automatic Alert When New Version is Available]
[If a new version of the application is available from the ITU-R website, there will be a notification when the application is launched.]

  • [Planning Exercise Tool]
[A known problem when preparing the results of calculations involving Other Primary Services has been resolved.]

  • [Resolved Issues]
[As listed in ERO document "Suggestions for the Software for the Display and Analysis of the Results of Planning Exercises/Plans" dated 28 April 2006, the following issues have been resolved:
- 5.2.1 Site Name and Allot Name sort preferences now appear as a single choice (Site/Allot Name), and other column sorting preferences are now exactly the same as column headings
- 5.2.2 Column headings have been revised and included in the help
- 5.2.3 (see 5.2.1 above)]

The installation package for the RRC06 Planning Interface 1.5.1shipped on the CD-ROM annex to CR/253 will also install updated reference situation databases and binary files for the analogue broadcasting and other primary services reference situations for the draft plan. These are respectively found in directories:
C:\RRC06\Display\planningExercise\analogue_ref_sit_draft_plan
C:\RRC06\Display\planningExercise\os_ref_sit_draft_plan
Running a planning exercise reusing older versions of the files in these directories is not supported.]

  • [Resolved Issues]
[As listed in ERO document "Suggestions for the Software for the Display and Analysis of the Results of Planning Exercises/Plans"dated March 28, 2006, the following issues have been resolved:
- 2.1.2 Feature request (see above under Coverage Analysis)
- 2.1.3 (idem)
- 2.2.1 Zooming on click is now working. In addition, when the user clicks in the geographic display in order to get rid of the pop-up menu, the display will NOT zoom.
- 4.2.1 Some index entries have been added.
- 4.2.2 Fixed]

  • [Version 1.5.0]
    • [Released in advance of the deadline for submitting additionaladministrative declarations for the second run of the synthesis of the Draft Plan, March 13, 2006]
    • [The application name is now "RRC06 Planning Interface" to better reflect its features]
    • [Planning Exercise Tool]
[The planning exercise tool now supports administrative declarations, which can be copied from a results database. The planning software has been updated to correspond to the :]

- [RRC-04 - Planning software]

  • [Creating Additional Administrative Declarations]
[The View->Compatibility Analysis screen can now be used to create (additional) administrative declarations based on the actual analysis results. The output format of the declarations file is CSV, and files created this way can be further edited using the Tools->Administrative Declarations Tool utility.
The View->Compatibility Analysis data table now provides many additional columns to better identify the nature of the incompatible requirements, and rearranging/hiding and sortingare now also supported.]

  • [Coverage Analysis]
[The menu item View->Input Data Analysis has been replaced with View->Coverage Analysis. The existing behaviour of the input data analysis has been improved as follows:
- The maximum value for colouring is now user-configurable.
- The colouring is more precise.
The main new functionality is the ability to compare input data coverages (red) with draft plan results (dark blue) just by clicking on the corresponding radio button.
- Resolved known issues with the planning exercise tool and administrative declarations tool.
- Limitations]

  • [Planning Exercise Tool]
[In the near future, support will be added for using declarations from CSV files, either in addition to those in a database or as the only declarations to be used.
Cannot yet treat other primary services. ]

  • [General Analysis Results]
[As the consequence of resolving an issue with column order and column widths preferences in the General Analysis screen, any existing preferences for the Digital Affected and Digital Interferers tables will be reset to default when this version is installed. New changes to these preferences will be preserved as expected. The new behaviour is to have separate preferences depending on whether the requirement under investigation is in Band III or Bands IV/V.]

  • [Display of results]
[- Frequency/channel filtering in the Service/Coverage Areas display now supports the option to not show service/ coverage areas on adjacent channels to those selected explicitly. Previously, service/coverage areas on adjacent channels were always shown. As far as service/coverage areas on overlapping channels are concerned, they are always displayed, as previously.
- Resolved known issues with filtering and colouring of service areas by frequency/channel.]

  • [Temporary limitations for RRC06Display2]
[- The Planning Exercise Tool has been temporarily disabled, pending availability of planning software for the Draft Plan.
- Contours for allotments where the administration has notified the geo_area as the allotment area are not shown. The contour points used for compatibility analysis will be determined by the EBU Technical Department based on the latest available data from the IDWM database, and included in a later issue of the input data for the Draft Plan.
- Both these limitations will be resolved as soon as possible.]
