Abstract or Description
This map of Maine shows the locations and heights of cellular towers registered by the Federal Communications Commission as of 1998. This map compares the locations of these cell towers to the population per census block provided by the U.S. Census Bureau’s Master Address File/Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing Database (MTDB). The Maine Office of GIS defines census blocks as “statistical areas bounded on all sides by visible features, such as streets, roads, streams, and railroad tracks, and/or by nonvisible boundaries such as city, town, township, and county limits…”
Source Data Note
All data for this map was published by the Maine Office of GIS and projected using the NAD83 UTM Zone 19N coordinate system.
