Not a beginning question. Moving thread.

Assuming you mean the graphical problem of creating smooth curves from point data, a search for "2d curve fitting java" found plenty of resources.

If thats not what you mean, please elaborate.

the contour i wish to have is showing the signal strength with its coverage area.
different colour for different signal strength.
The contour will be the same as picture shown.

I have seen similar patterns, but I think they are based on complex calculations from the broadcast antenna(s) positions combined with topographic information rather that an array of point measurements of actual signal.

That is certainly not a simple problem like the 2d curve fitting.

Alas, the signal strength contours show my house can't reliably get 4G wireless, verified in my case by some guy with a signal strength meter.

I'm new in java programming,hence can you suggest any idea how to do this ?
I'm totally lost !

What are you starting with? Do you have data, or some way to take measurements? Do you want to just plot data you already have, or do you want to collect data? Do you work for a cell phone company, or some other web site? Or is this a student project, or a personal project?

Maybe you're just saying "I want to make maps of cell tower signal strength", and that's all you know about the problem?

Actually the title for my project is related to wireless ap detection. I'm a student and
my group of 2 is trying developing a project.
It is something like display the access point in a list and show those beacons
on a floor map(example 4th floor of a building).
Hence, on that map,it will display those detected access point and its signal coverage area.
Using different colour to show different signal.
Honestly, what is level of difficulty of this project ? (hard ? moderate ?)

I would say pretty hard, especially so in Java, which has no programming interfaces of its own for dealing with wireless signal detection. To be perfectly honest, drawing the contour plots would be the easiest part. Did you have any kind of plan for collecting the geospatial data? Maybe with a GPS unit connected to a laptop, you could walk all around the building collecting data for signal strength from access points. Civilian GPS isn't terribly accurate, but it's better than nothing. Alternatively, you could enter your location into a map by clicking on a spot, and then explicitly measure signal strength at that point.

I really suggest against doing a program like this. Start with simple examples and then move up to complicated stuff.

I think Ernest is on the right track (as usual) - concentrate on a way of gathering the signal strength vs location data efficiently.

Once it is in a usable form you should be able to find 2D and 3D curve fitting tools on the net.

Actually i'm trying using placelab in this project. Placelab is a open source which include wifi detection in java language.
But i'm not sure the contour is included or not.
If dont mind, kindly help me take a look on http://www.placelab.org/

I think only two of those are cross-posts, and have closed them. Thank you for noticing.

Indeed. Please do not post the same question multiple times (in the same forum or in different forums).

I'm locking this one. Continue in your other topic.

Re-opening to thank Salvin Francis for noticing; I thought I had closed enough threads, but was obviously mistaken.
