Broadband Catalysts have developed a free, open-source mapping application to display publicly available broadband data from a number of sources, including the FCC and open access fiber networks. Citizens can also contribute data by marking their locations as unserved or underserved.
In partnership with:
Communities can use this tool to easily aggregate demand data without the costs of mapping software and geocoding services. The data collected can be used in conjunction with census data, FCC speed test data, and other available data sets to provide a more informative and insightful view of our broadband demand and available infrastructure. Organizations and communities wishing to map their own resources, whether broadband related or not, can take advantage of this open source application to display their data.
Note that the Broadband Catalysts open source broadband map is built upon the open source OpenGeo mapping suite and Software Developers Kit (SDK) from Boundless. Our source code and data are available on request.
