Mobile Coverage GIS Data

I am attempting to use the Telstra Mobile Coverage GIS Server in QGIS however, i am unable to use any of the 'hosted' options for mobile coverage.

The solution made by wishbone1989 in 2016:

https://crowdsupport.telstra.com.au/t5/mobile-broadband/google-earth-layer-of-mobile-broadband-cover...

was working until late last year or so.
Others have had the same problem
https://crowdsupport.telstra.com.au/t5/mobile-broadband/google-earth-layer-of-mobile-broadband-cover...

 

I have since discovered that Telstra (unannounced) relocated the service to:
https://staging.gcm.telstra.com.au/gisserver/rest/services/Hosted

and with this prefix of 'staging' appear to have changed the hosting method from WFS to VectorTileServer (also unannounced).


It is possible to access CoverageDifferences - however, i do not believe the 'Hosting' section (and arguably the only thing that most people are looking for) is not functioning.

Anyone tips on how to get these datasets (specifically 3g/4g/5g coverage) to load in QGIS?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: Mobile Coverage GIS Data

QGIS does not appear to support pbf data yet. They were hoping to have it ready for version 3.14, but I can't find it in the support documentation, so it looks like you'll have to wait for version 3.15.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
