Graphical Visualisation

A Graphical Visualisation of National Table of Frequency Allocation (NTFA) and applications information (search and compare) is included in EFIS. The tool can also be separately used outside the EFIS database on other webpages (without the EFIS design) and with the allocation and application terminology translated in national language. Alternatively, administrations can also generate pictures of parts of their national frequency table. The "external usage" features are especially considered as helpful for smaller administrations which otherwise could not have such a tool.

Example Link: An example link from the tool is as follows and can be extracted from the Graphical Search page after selection of the settings:

For embedding the graph in an external webpage you can use the the above url as source for an HTML iframe

The tool will look like your own tool without EFIS frame/design.

Alternatively, users can also export customised pictures or the selected frequency table information (in csv format). The tool is free to use. In order to use the tool with your information you should provide your NTFA and/or application information in an excel spreadsheet. Please contact Thomas.weber@eco.cept.org for help/assistance. ECO will assist you for the mapping of this information in EFIS usable data in xml- format.

Tool features: you can zoom, scroll, export picture/ table information, select horizontal/vertical arrangement of entries, export a link/use the tool externally you can compare graphically the allocations or applications of two or more countries. The allocation and application terminology can also be translated into your own language using terminology mapping tables.
