Google Earth layer of mobile broadband coverage maps?

Answered

Hi,
Is there a Google Earth KML file available representing the coverage map, as at http://www.telstra.com.au/mobile-phones/coverage-networks/our-coverage/ ?

 

Thanks,

Scott

Not that I am aware of, I can pass on feedback though and see if we would be interested in doing this in future.

Hello Dan,

 

I'm also interested on this, have you received any feedback?

 

A shapefile or the publication of an OGC service (WMS, WFS) also would work.

 

Thanks!

Not solved.

I'll ask the question again: "Can Telstra provide an overlay to show mobile phone coverage on Google Earth/GoogleMaps?

Didn't work it out in Google Earth, but added it to QGIS or other GIS programs. Instructions for QGIS (open source free gis software if you don't have it and imho pretty bloody good):

  1. Install / run QGIS
  2. Add a base map, such as a google earth layer or google streets layer from Quick Map Services (you'll need to install this plugin) or use your own base map
  3. Click Add WMS/WMTS layer
  4. Click on new and in the Name box type a name such as Telstra
  5. In the URL box type paste this link: http://gcm.telstra.com.au/gisserver/rest/services/GCM_4G_3G/MapServer/WMTS?
  6. Click connect on the link that you just created
  7. Select the GCM_4G_3G layer and click add.
  8. Zoom to where you want to work and it should load in the coverage as it appears on Telstra's site.

My version using base map from GA's 250k mapset overlaid with Telstra coverage at Coober Pedy:
