Bts inside rapid transit (metro, subway, underground)



This is a common crosspost for opencellid, radiocells and mozilla location.

The rapid transit (metro,subway, tube) in my city has a very good GSM, WCDMA and LTE coverage. On the stations and inside tunnels. We have 4 different real (not virtual) operators so there a lot of stations. And there are no GPS or any other GNSS coverage, of couse.

So I can’t fill the database with TowerCollector Radiobeacon or Mozilla Stumbler.

But it will be very-very coll to see on the map where you are during the trip.
Moreover, I’m dreaming about the app that will notify me when should I exit (the station before).

I’m ready to fill the database manually: to visit all stations, make records, and publish them associating according to each station.

There is also wifi in each train (wagon), but I see no reason to put it into database as it’s moving.

In case of Tower Collector it’s really hard to implement your proposal in my available spare time because currently the application strongly depends on GPS locations. But I see it valuable.
