Broadband Mapping and GIS
Design Nine has state of the art GIS and mapping systems in house to provide our clients with a full range of broadband mapping services and capabilities. Typical mapping work for a broadband study includes:
- Mapping of existing assets, including towers, fiber routes, telephone switching offices, and other local infrastructure.
- Identification and mapping of key anchor broadband users, including K12 schools, colleges and universities, libraries, and local government offices and facilities.
- Mapping of key business, commercial, and industrial areas, including major employers and business/industrial parks.
- Studies of your region mapping low and moderate income (LMI) areas to help qualify for grants.
- Mapping of existing unserved, underserved, and served areas in the region to identify where new services and infrastructure is needed most.
- Aerial photographic views overlaid with GIS map data and key locations.
- Backbone and middle mile routes for new fiber and/or wireless infrastructure.
- Last mile fiber and wireless build out studies.
- Business and residential cluster analysis mapping studies to identify where users are located and where to build first.
A typical feasibility study includes a full range of maps at various scales and projections to provide clear visual representations of areas of need, proposed infrastructure, and potential service areas.
