intro objectives
  • Find a location for a new cell tower in the Seattle area
  • Increase service in areas with less coverage
  • Create better access through higher elevations
  • Find the most suitable location based on land features
  • Elevations (Seattle area)
  • Environmental non-build areas (seismic, erosion, coal mines, landslides)
  • Hydraulic non-build areas (floodways, floodplains)
  • Buildings and Land Parcels
  • Current Cell Towers

data analysis
Data Analysis
  • Merge non-build areas to create a single layer
  • Create 5 miles buffer around existing cell towers
  • Locate area to build new cell tower and examine existing buildings/parcels
