Please i have an idea and i am not very experienced with RTL-SDR , we want to use the RTL-SDR as a mobile network scanner module which can search for (GSM,UMTS,LTE) cells in the area and return information about (Cell-Id,LAC,frequency,rx power, TAC.......etc) and i have some quesations :

1) can that be applicable or not ?
2) which details and knowledge should i get to start
3)which open source boards or Kits can be used and support the SDR module.
4)which Software can be used and areas to be programmed if there is no libraries.

I hope i get your feedback if anyone can help
