Does anyone know of any complete database of cell tower locations with the following information? Lat, long of cell tower MCC, MNC, LAC, Cell ID Range Signal strength

I have checked out the data from Open Cell ID, RadioCell and Mylnikov and they seem to be incomplete. Some lat, long are randomly placed on an empty open field.

Thank you so much in advance. Any help is greatly appreciated.

  • Hi and welcome to the Open Data SE. Can you be a bit more clear and specify a region that you're interested in? – Trevor J. Smith Jan 25 '19 at 18:43
  • I am looking to map all cell towers across the US in all the states. – Stella Jan 25 '19 at 18:59
  • Many cell towers actually are in the middle of otherwise empty fields. Perhaps you're looking at old imagery, from before the cell towers were built. – csk Mar 21 '19 at 20:44

it's not the US, but maybe interesting for others:

Switzerland (official) cellular data/maps

GSM: https://data.geo.admin.ch/ch.bakom.mobil-antennenstandorte-gsm/

LTE: https://data.geo.admin.ch/ch.bakom.mobil-antennenstandorte-lte/

UMTS: https://data.geo.admin.ch/ch.bakom.mobil-antennenstandorte-umts/

You can try search in gsm coverage maps, some ones has maps, but you can try fetch kml data

You may be able to get tower locations from OSM


See this answer about downloading bulk files (entire US) and then filtering for specific tags (for example, communication=mobile_phone)
