Toronto/GTA 7330/Stinger Remote Cataloging Project

I'm announcing the creation of a Cataloging Project that will show the areas where FTTN has been deployed through the 7330/Stinger.

1. It will help potential buyers and sellers to decide about an area
2. It will show availability of FTTN deployment
3. It will also show deployment timelines and revisions for older remotes

This will be done through the use Google Earth markers (KMZ) and I have already gathered a substantial amount of remote availability in Richmond Hill and parts of Markham.

This will be an Open-Source project and I invite the community to add to these markers and locations.

Mod note: Make sure you check the end of the thread for the most up to date information.

Yes if you can please provide that. Optionally you can create a KMZ marker that goes straight into street view.

I'm still testing the 14 sites I have found to make sure there are no issues with it going into street view upon launch.

That's cool...

However, there are JWI's that house both a Stinger and a 7330. So it's still a crapshoot on what you are connected to at those locations.

For sure, but it's still worthwhile to know where even they are.

Ok, but how do we submit locations to it? It loads up in google earth but thats about it... You could do the same thing in google maps online without the use of google earth...

You can use the Add Placemark (Ctrl-Shift-P) and to the locations.

There is two ways of effectively managing the locations:

1. Submit coordinates so I can add it in future revisions/additions
2. Add Placemarks and then upload the Placemarks KMZ to be Merged

I've chosen not to use Google Maps due to their display of your profile information/nickname ie a sense of privacy for my profile.

As it stands this project is in a very early state of development. It will serve to supplement the following Residential Internet Map:

This will be very tedious to always have to download a current google maps file...

You could start a google account just for this purpose, and not have to reveal anything about yourself...

I think it would be easier to manage and easier for everyone to view.

+1. Something like this would be nice.

Yeah, that'd be awesome... Also IMO much cleaner and easier to look at vs the satellite view of google earth... I dont even know if its possible to turn that off... Its annoying.

Sounds like an interesting project.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who wouldn't mind helping out when the weather gets nicer and we go for walks, however I would have no idea what a 7330 looks like compared to a Stringer.

Do you have pictures of what you are looking for? I certainly wouldn't mind helping out in my neighbourhood, but it would be nice if there were more details on what is needed.

Well, we could have 2 groups of people working on it:
1 group willing to mark remotes and such,
with the other coming behind to state what type of remote it is.

Or, to save the requirement of two trips, the first group could take pictures of the remote and they can be identified online.

As in, have someone who knows what to look for post images of each, clearly labelled, so when people mark remotes on google maps, they can refer to the images, and mark it themselves?

Stinger CR on the left, 7330 on the right.

A Google maps implementation sounds great to me... I'd happily make contributions for my neighborhood. Google Earth is a PITA though.

Hence the "Compact Remote". The 7330's can come in different shelf sizes though, the one in the picture is an ARAM-D which can feed 192 lines. They also have the VSEM cabinets but they are white.

I made up a map quickly, and set it so anyone can contribute. Added a few myself to figure out how to do it.

The ARAM-D is the most common variant I've encountered out in the field as well.

Sorry for the lack of updates but I'll be moving it to Google Maps sometime soon if time permits.

I would appreciate more community feedback/assistance and contributions.

As I was browsing the map, I accidentally moved two locations without realizing it, but I think I put them back in the right spot (not positive about the one south of Yonge & Major Mackenzie, at the intersection of Church St & Palmer Ave). Apologies to "Dan" if I got it wrong.

Isn't there some way to protect the bookmarked locations from tampering? I didn't even need to click "Edit" to move them... a total stranger could destroy the map if they wanted to. And once it becomes filled with more and more bookmarked locations, it will become increasingly likely that locations will get dragged around by accident by people only trying to reposition their view.
