TV region maps now show network connections and transmitter types

You can now see, for most regions, which transmitters are fed from which other transmitters, and Freeview and public service masts are indicated clearly.

published on UK Free TV

I have been considering this for a while, and I suspected it would be one of those "data entry on a rainy day" things to do - manually update the database so the UK Free TV mapping pages show the connections between the transmitters.

Using the information from the Transmitter Network - Digital UK Almanac I have updated the system to show the links between the transmitters, for example:

These are available for all switched-over regions, plus Oxford, minus (for some unspecified reason) the Carmel group in Wales and the Torosay and Selkirk groups in Scotland. Also missing is Stockland Hill in England.

If anyone has the Carmel, Torosay, Stockland Hill or Selkirk information, please let me know!

In addition, a separate symbol is now used to denote "Freeview Light" transmitters that only carry the public service multiplexes BBCA, D3+4 and BBCB, or will do after they have switched-over.

Your feed back is, as always, appreciated.

Mark A.: The BBC TWO icon would be wrong, BBC TWO does not have regions in England.

Looking at the transmitter maps, I note that many of the reception areas go off the map, so the complete reception area isn't shown (see Sandy Heath and Crystal Palace, for example).

Nigel Cory: Thanks very much, I'm pleased the mapping is appreciated as it was actually quite a lot of data entry and fidding with the Google Mapping interface.

I should have said I have all of Scotland now - TV regions overview map | - independent free digital TV advice .
