The digital divide is holding humanity back – geospatial mapping can help 

Billions of people still lack access to the internet. But telcos can start to close the digital divide by using advanced 3D maps to support RF planning in rural and remote areas. Learn how.

mmWave 5G will disappoint without better planning

mmWave 5G promises incredibly fast wireless download speeds. But 5G networks will disappoint without reliable mmWave 5G coverage – and so improved planning of networks will be vital.

Why RF planning needs better maps for 5G to succeed

Many telecom firms are rolling out 5G networks today, and their RF planning teams are choosing where to place cell towers. Learn why more advanced maps will be vital to make these plans a success.

Building footprints are transforming multiple industries – here’s how

Building footprints are polygons on maps which represent the outline of individual structures. These simple line drawings can provide invaluable information to multiple industries. Learn how.

Comparison of 5G Radio Predictions With and Without 3D Vegetation

3D maps have become widely used for planning in urban/dense urban areas, where urbanization is dense, including high-rise buildings. These maps accurately model each building, terrain, transportation network, etc. With 5G NR, the frequencies are higher than ever. 3.6 GHz...
