I am creating a heat map in Airwave and just want to know about proposed placement of new AP's. what is considered an OK dB? is there a chart to associate dB with signal strength?

An ideal signal to target is -65 throughout the area (make sure this is on 5GHz....I usually remove 2.4GHz from the heatmap so not to misinterpret). This will provide clients with a high quality link (barring other interferers) throughout. You can levarage this VRD to help you along (it is for 802.11n, but still applicable).

Well, technically no...
Since the values are negative, you want the number to be higher as far as value goes.
Think of it this way; the closer to 0dBm the better the signal
Take a look through this user guide, it's pretty usefull when starting out with VisualRF.
