Improvements to UK Free TV transmitter mapping launched
All of the pages showing the transmitter maps now have much better resolution (200m squares) and this has allowed for more accurate mapping to be calculated displayed.
The first improvement is that the new transmitters that were added to the network during digital switchover now display with their coverage area.
For the transmitters where the system has the radiation pattern from the BBC Freedom of Information request, this is now shown in the calculated coverage area:
For the masts that have a Freeview service before the switch to digital-only transmission, this can be seen by clicking on the "pre-DSO 1" option on a transmitter page. This is the default for any transmitter that has not yet switched over.
By comparison, this is how the mapping appeared before:
Also, the site now contains the details of the Saorview transmitters in Ireland.

Be aware that HP and VP aerials from the same site may point in different directions. For example, you've done plots for both Hemdean HP and Hemdean VP, but you've used the VP radiation pattern for both. The page currently only shows my VP plot, the HP plot is at http://i1211.photobucket.….png .
Unfortunately I don't think we have plots for all HP/VP transmitters.
