Catalan Comms Data on Google Maps

Cercador de Cobertures

The Government of Catalonia has produced a Google Map to give the public monthly updates on the coverage of telecommunication services in Catalan. The web site uses both Google Maps and the Google Earth plug-in to allow citizens to view the coverage of DVB-T services, rural-based broadband technology and mobile emergency call data.

Using the map it is possible to search for any Catalan municipality and view up-to-date coverage of telecommunication services in the area. The site uses spatial information from various sources, including the Cartographic Institute of Catalonia ICC, Google and various communications operators.
