[Visualization] What is the Quantity of Access Points?

This visualization will show you the number of access points detectable at each measurement point on the map. If you hover over the measurement markers on the map and look at the AP names on the left, you can see the exact signal levels for each location.

The Quantity of Access Points visualization is one of the PRO visualizations available only to those that have upgraded to the PRO or Enterprise version of NetSpot.
