This app collects GPS locations of GSM/UMTS/LTE/CDMA cell towers and sends them to OpenCellID.org database. It is designed to help map the extent of mobile phone network coverage. It is also possible to collect measurements for private purposes and export them to CSV or GPX files.
• specially optimized GPS parameters to reduce battery drain
• upload to OpenCellId.org project
• export to SD card as CSV or GPX
• ad-free, forever!
The OpenCellID.org project goal is to create a worldwide open source database of mobile cell locations. Tower Collector gives you opportunity to contribute in OpenCellID project by uploading cell towers' locations from your area. Collected data can be used to quickly locate devices without enabling GPS.
