I trying to create a mesh from GPS lat&long coordinates combined with WiFi RSSI data. When imported the data looks like this

Lat&long + RSSI

I've been playing around with different ways to create a solid mesh, but none seem to work very well.

I was hoping to achieve something like a heatmap geography of a route where strong WiFi signals show as spikes.

Along the lines of what I wanted to achieve:

Here is even a question using the same image as you: blender.stackexchange.com/questions/76535/…. If nothing matches please explain your data in more detail $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ This is going to depend on input data are lat and long in a simple grid pattern,? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I've tried working from that post and it just seems to output a line with no faces. @batFINGER What do you mean with a simple grid pattern? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ In your example pic the x, y of mesh is a grid. The "heat" z isn't. If the data is ordered in lat long grid then making a mesh like above is pretty simple. If the lats and longs are a willy nilly hodge podge, maybe not so simple, $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ The lat long should be prober, but yeah the heat (rssi) is all over the place. Any pointers on where to go from here would be greatly appreciated. $\endgroup$
