Register of Radio Frequencies

Spectrum Search Lite is the database of Register of Radio Frequencies managed by RSM. Currently the data is provided in a proprietary database format (Microsoft Access) and this greatly restricts its usage. A lot of the information also has a geospatial component e.g. locations of masts, towers, cell sites etc so the data is most suited to being provided in a proper geospatial data format. I am requesting that this, and all future updates to the Register of Radio Frequencies are published via the LINZ Data Service to all greater geospatial and mapping access to this important information.

The data is open, it is just currently published in a proprietary, and non spatially-aware format.

Publishing this data via the official LINZ Data Service would ensure it is published in a more open data format, and one that is recognised by many GIS and mapping applications
