Please note, the data in Mobile Coverage Legacy is as it was when given to Collins Bartholomew. It has not been altered in any way, other than to standardise the naming of the files. Consequently, Collins Bartholomew cannot be responsible for the accuracy of the content, and there are no supporting documents either to describe the data, or to provide details on sources. The attribution of polygons may also not conform to Collins Bartholomew’s strict geopolitical policy.
