1. A method, performed in a wireless device served by a network node of a first network, for designating one or more cells of a second network as neighbouring cells to the first network, the method comprising:
receiving, from said network node of the first network, information on a set of carriers employed in the second network;
performing measurements on selected one or more carriers from the set of carriers; and
transmitting measurement reports for respective carriers to the network node, the measurement reports being representative of neighbour cell relations between the first network and one or more cells of the second network, wherein the measurement reports for the respective carriers are configured to cause the network node of the first network to determine neighbour cell relations between the first network and the one or more cells of the second network by associating the measurement results and a location of the wireless device to a location in a location oriented map which defines cell geography of the second network.
