The data is publicly observable, so I don't see how they can claim any
copyright upon it.
If you're drawing a map & you mark a hill upon it, the farmer who owns
the hill surely cannot take action against you. (Assume you do not set
foot upon the property, but estimate location & height of the peak by
observation & triangulation from other nearby points of known height &
I don't see that it could be covered by a user agreement, because cell
towers advertise their presence to users of other networks.
What legal issues do YOU foresee, in which jurisdictions?
