With the average individual carrying at least one, if not more, mobile phones, being able to determine the movement of this mobile device could be invaluable evidence. This process is called cell site analysis, which is a means of establishing the geographical location of a phone when calls, SMS messages or downloads are sent or received.
Evidence obtained from cell site analysis can be combined with other evidence such as CCTV, call data records or observations, to determine if the accused was in fact at the scene of the crime or to confirm an alibi. Alternatively it can track the path of a mobile phone as it moves from location to location.
Using data from mobile phone service providers, our surveyors can measure actual coverage utlilising sophisticated data gathering, positioning and analytical tools. The information gathered is used to generate detailed coverage maps where the service areas of individual cell sites are shown as different colours. Maps are available in various formats including aerial photography, A-Z street maps and OS ranges.
