5G Planning – geospatial considerations. A guide for planners and local authorities For Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. February 2018
“Evidence from the project work conducted alongside Surrey University 5GIC and MetOffice identified that any object over 10cm should, be considered when planning your network. This implies that mapping of these objects must be done at 10cm resolution or better for best results. In practice this may not always be necessary for every use case as we will see.”
“The example diagram of Figure 7-1 places typical objects on a chart relative to their importance (value to propagation tool) in terms of ensuring these are captured when planning the mmwave network.
“Must do implies these objects will have a significant impact on the propagation of mmwave signals and therefore must be captured through some form of survey.”
“Must Do” includes trees to 5 metreshttps://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/684420/OS_Final_report__5g-planning-geospatial-considerations.pdf?fbclid=IwAR3pt6DJv0iaCk9_XYmmD_Az8sDv77ehcPw3-ZJUsWqMq4Wg0YffWwLcdtM
