Hardware requirements

NoiseMap is mathematically intensive and will benefit from the fastest processors available, especially when using NoiseMap five to model huge areas. A machine specified for CAD or similar work should be suitable.

A fast graphics card is recommended for viewing large areas, with Open GL support for 3D viewing. A minimum of 8 GB of RAM is recommended on Windows 7 and above.   A hard disk of 80GB is adequate. A 21 inch or larger display is advantageous and twin screens will ease the handling of large model. WinTab driver is required for digitising tablets.

NoiseMap five is multi-threaded, allowing noise calculations to use all available cores in a single computer.
