NPR Signal Coverage on Google Maps
NPR Labs has launched a new Google Maps based Broadcast Signal Mapping System to show the reception coverage of all public radio and television stations in the USA.
If you zoom in on a location or use the search function to search for a city the available stations will appear in the map sidebar. Alongside the station name are icons representing the available coverage overlays that can be viewed on the map.
The map also includes a demographics tab. The demographics tab provides information about the population covered by each station listed in the map sidebar.
