FCC makes spectrum dashboard available

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has also announced the release of a beta version of its new Spectrum Dashboard, which it says will enable users tolearn more about how portions of the electromagnetic spectrum are allocated and used.

According to a press release issued by the FCC, the new Spectrum Dashboard includes four components that allow users to:

  • Browse spectrum bands: Users can search by spectrum range by browsing an interactive spectrum chart:
  • Search for spectrum licenses: Users can search by name, geographic area or service;
  • Produce maps of spectrum licenses: Users can produce maps that depict a geographic service area for individual licenses, the amount of spectrum that has been licensed in a given area, or the amount of spectrum licensed to an individual licensee;
  • Export raw data: Users can download raw data from any search into spreadsheets for more complex analysis.

The FCC’s new spectrum dashboard is available at www.fcc.gov/spectrumdashboard.
