In this paper a 3-D `image-based' ray tracing algorithm for microcellular environments is presented. The model is capable of predicting wideband as well as narrowband propagation information. To demonstrate the viability of this approach, predictions are generated using a two dimensional building database for the centre of Bristol. These results are then compared with practical wideband measurements
