Coverage area map with gps

Postby nim401 » Wed Oct 08, 2008 11:07 am

Greetings!
Is it possible for netstumbler 0.4.0 and a gps to plot every point where it sees an ap?
I am trying to make a map of my coverage area and found out today after an hour and a half of driving around that it only plots the point of strongest signal.

It has been several years since i used netstumbler last and unless my memory is failing, the last time i used it it worked that way.

If it does in fact not work that way are there apps out there that will?

Yes, if you export it as wi-scan or text and not summary.

Someone in the forum posted the script that will make coverage area maps in Google Earth, but I believe it works with Kismet and not NS. Then again maybe I dreamed the whole thing up. The mind starts playing tricks on you after a certain age. Right Thorn?

That's right. I'd forgotten about those outputs.

Speaking of 'pills' and 'things going', I found Thorn's nurse expressing her political ideas here:

Those boobs are about as phony as B. Hussein is, and besides, he's a much bigger boob than that.

Well, yeah...but if there ain't no potatoes available, spuds in a box are just as filling.
