Predicting Line-of-Sight Locations

Collecting some tools I'm finding for estimating line-of-sight locations based on topography. Will annotate further as I learn more.

Ubiquiti AirLink Signal Strength Mapping Tool


The AirLink tool looks really promising! Its calculations are tailored towards Ubiquiti products; but it will display the height profile and a visualization of the Fresnel zone between any two given points -- which might be really useful for estimating radio signal strength in general for radios (like LoRa) that are heavily dependent on line-of-sight connections.
