The OpenMobileNetwork is a dataset for mobile networks and devices, which is semantically modeled using the principles of Linked Data. It provides structured RDF data describing mobile networks, their topology and components (e.g., base stations, mobile devices or WiFi access points). Utilizing this dataset in combination with interlinked information that is present in the Linking Open Data Cloud, various applications can be realized that depend on mobile network and positioning data (e.g., Semantic Location-based Services or Power Management in Mobile Networks).
OpenMobileNetwork for Android (OMNApp) is a background service that actively collects mobile network data in a crowd-sourcing approach in order to estimate and derive base station and WiFi hotspot positions. It further acquires live measurement data, such as the total traffic produced on smartphones or service usage information, in order to enable the modeling and visualization of the current/historic state of the network.
By using this app, you contribute with your data in building an open-source semantic dataset for mobile networks within the OpenMobileNetwork research project. Please have a look at: http://www.openmobilenetwork.org/
OMNApp has been developed by Abdulbaki Uzun and Thilo Geismar. This app is part of the Service-centric Networking department of the Technische Universität Berlin, Germany.
