Description:
Abstract: This dataset represents Cellular Service Area Boundaries aggregated by callsign.
Purpose: This dataset serves as base information for use in GIS systems for general planning, analytical, and research purposes. It is not intended for engineering work or to legally define FCC licensee data or FCC market boundaries. The material in these data and text files are provided as-is. The FCC disclaims all warranties with regard to the contents of these files, including their fitness. In no event shall the FCC be liable for any special, indirect, or consequential damages whatsoever resulting from loss or use, data, or profits, whether in connection with the use or performance of the contents of these files, action of contract, negligence, or other action arising out of, or in connection with the use of the contents of these files. It is known that there are some errors in the licensing information - Latitude, Longitude and Ground Elevation data as well as frequency assignment data from which these files were generated. This dataset represents cellular service areas aggregated by callsign.
Supplemental Information: If you are using this dataset as a shapefile, please be aware that it was converted from a Geodatabase. As a result, this shapefile may have attribution and metadata errors resulting from the conversion process. The following are known issues: null values may have been changed to 0s (zeros) or to blank values, numbers (including latitude and longitude) may have been rounded up or down, there may be issues with Unicode character strings, and time cannot be stored in a date field. Field names may have been truncated to no longer than 10 characters or completely changed, lengthy string attributes may have been truncated to 254 characters, and attribute columns may have been deleted. Shapefiles do not support coded domains and subtypes therefore the original file geodatabase attribution and metadata information for coded domains and subtypes could be incorrect or missing in the shapefile version. Please visit the following ESRI website for more information: caution-http://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/tool-reference/appendices/geoprocessing-considerations-for-Shapefile-output.htm
