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.
