SigMap is an innovative crowd-sourcing solution for collecting mobile coverage information.
SigMap informs and facilitates change. By providing a free app to gather completely anonymous data on mobile telephone carrier coverage and blackspots throughout Australia, SigMap is a single source of truth for accurate, real-world signal data available for licensing.
The benefits of SigMap
Forget drive around surveys and simulations or relying on theoretical coverage maps, SigMap provides real-world data about mobile telephone carriers, their strengths, their presence and their blackspots. Currently, carriers do not provide the granularity needed for informed decision making. Be secure in your decisions, whether planning for new infrastructure or sending employees to areas they will be safe, have the latest information and stay connected.
To bid in the Blackspot Program, Local and State governments need to identify and collect data to support the presence of blackspots and then assemble evidence to suggest the spot needs to be improved. Evidence to improve coverage in such areas may include analysis of population, commerce and emergency requirements. SigMap gives you the power to visualise signal data; concrete proof of blackspots able to be overlayed with other data sets.
SigMap helps identify communities that are at a disadvantage. Areas where economic development cannot be effective due to poor signal infrastructure. These communities are unable to take advantage of emerging technologies, stunting growth and allowing the gap to widen. Perhaps this is a remote area that cannot utilise tele-health services, an agricultural business unable to connect, tourism unable to stay competitive. Economic development requires connectivity.
