Geographic Information System (GIS) Interactive Portal ICT Coverage in Kenya
The Geographic Information Systems (GIS) portal is one-stop online interactive platform created by the Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) to provide a view of the different layers of ICT coverage in Kenya. The Geo-Portal will be updated on a regular basis and will assist the Authority in the identification of the gaps for each service area by giving GPS coordinates for selected Universal Service clusters (access gaps) and required areas of intervention. The portal will also be used to determine the extent of communication coverage and the access levels by citizens.
The map has been populated with different information layers such as Telecom (3G and 2G coverage from the 3 operators), postal network, broadcasting, Fibre routes, transportation, administrative boundaries, education health facilities, and electricity networks.
The portal is accessible to the different users through the links provided below:
(i) Public Users Link: The map is accessible to anyone who wants to access the map on the Authority’s website.
(ii) Government Users Link: Government officials working in different ministries have access to the ICT Access Gaps and the users are expected to have credentials (Username and password) to access the map.
(iii) Communications Authority of Kenya Staff Link: The Authority’s staff must use credentials (Username and password) to access the ICT Access Gaps maps.
