Project Summary

Map My LTE is a surveying tool for 2G/3G/4G/5G cellular network information using both consumer Android and FirstNet Android devices, allowing data being recorded and displayed over the heatmaps.  The same app platform can be used for surveying air quality, radiation, noise level and much more through IoT add-ons. We currently have an Android application that can collect LTE signals using GPS, non GPS (WiFi LTE location), and ability to insert floor plans on the application itself.  The application then has the ability to export the survey data into a CSV file and upload the data to Firebase for cloud storage.  The application is ready to use and be deployed.
