Support for

Posted by Hawkeye on 19 February 2012 in English (English)


I have been looking at other 'open' projects today. There is a good list of citizen science projects at

Unfortunately, it's surprising how many 'open' projects don't release their data as open data.

I did find a great project called openBmap, which is currently looking for support to keep its open project going (yes, really 'open' under odbl). collects info on phone signal coverage - allowing you to see the best operators etc in your area. They also collect wifi data.

Best of all, they use OpenStreetMap as a baselayer on maps!

Hope someone can support this truly open project. Perhaps as a sister project?

I am a member since some weeks and I like the project. I have visualised the cell stations in Germany and France for myself.
The "measuremt point" overlay in the German map is from OpenCellID since I can not deal with the raw measurement data from openBmap due to the lack of programming skills. Maybe I will update the map more often when it becomes clear, that the project survives.
