Abstract 

Drive testing is a common practice by mobile operators to evaluate the performance and coverage of their deployed mobile communication systems. Drive testing is, however, a very expensive practice. Furthermore, due to the complexity of future 5G mobile networks, accurate and efficient ways of optimizing and evaluating coverage are needed. The dataset contains measurements from a deployed LTE-A mobile communication system and corresponding satellite images. The dataset has been generated to explore the idea of utilizing information from satellite images to predict (and improve predictions) of signal strength parameters in unseen locations.
