Information for each point includes location, time, signal strength, bearing, and instrument setup data. If you do indoor coverage mapping (or any non-geo-referenced mapping), the .mtd file is saved with the Latitude and Longitude columns in display points (screen display pixels). The upper left corner is 0,0 and the lower right corner is 665, 419. Refer to Coverage Mapping (Option 431) for more information.
