Dunoma U, Nguru A. I.


Abstract: The research focused on the production of utility map of global system for mobile communication (GSM) mast within Damaturu metropolis through field data acquisition, processing and presentation. The geo-metric and attribute data acquired were used to design and to show the position of various masts facilities and their area of coverage. Thus, spatial information and attribute data (area occupied, identification of service providers) of the telecommunication facilities (mast) were determined using simple hand heldglobal positioning system (GPS) equipment. The data generated were analyzed using geographic information system (GIS) application ArcGIS 9.2 software. A total of 37 telecommunication facilities of the various service providers were identified and considered. Most of the facilities (25 out of 37) covers an approximate area of 144 square meters with the remaining having more or less area coverage which are all processed and presented in graphical form.
