A: In general, the setup takes you from left to right within the application toolbar until the run (play) button is reached. The majority of our applications have a Setup Wizard which will navigate the user through the processing setup steps in a logical order.
Q: What is the ‘Default Setup Path’ for in the Preferences panel?
A: This facility allows the user to specify a ‘base’ or favourite directory which will be the browsing starting point when saving or retrieving Hopewiser setup files.
Q: What are the setup files for?
A: Setup files enable the user to rerun (regular/scheduled) processing jobs without the need to redefine all the parameters of that run again. Loading up a saved setup file and making slight changes to the run is also much less onerous than beginning the processing setup from scratch.
Q: How many records should the software be processing per hour?
A: This depends on the capabilities of the system the software is installed and processes. Older hardware, or many processes will slow the rate down.
Q: How accurate are the geographical grid references output from Hopewiser software?
A: The majority of users have grid reference data derived from Ordnance Survey NSPD. This is accurate to within 1 metre of the geographical mean of the postcode. Other suppliers provide more accurate alternatives at an additional cost.
