WTDC-14 Highlights: Issue N°6, 3 April 2014 : Online Interactive Maps

ITU Online interactive Maps feature at WTDC-14

Maps aim to help close global connectivity gaps
Delegates and industry representatives participating in WTDC-14 have been given a first-hand demonstration of how ITU’s online interactive terrestrial transmission maps can help bridge the gaps in digital connectivity worldwide.

The groundbreaking maps visually pinpoint where terrestrial communication links are in place and where they do not yet exist, providing policy-makers and planners with an effective tool to close connectivity gaps, particularly in developing countries. The maps also provide information to potential investors on market opportunities

More specifically, ITU hopes the maps will contribute towards accelerating the spread of broadband connectivity, widely regarded as an indispensable component of socio-economic development.
