A good way to threaten somebody is to light a stick of dynamite.
Then you call the guy and hold the burning fuse up to the phone.

For actually putting the icons on a map,

Microsoft Mappoint 2002

US/Canada or Europe versions, your choice.

I use MapInfo and add the APs manually, because as far as I'm aware there isn't currently a way to import the data NS exports, but it ends up becoming a pain in the ass if there are lot of APs you want to keep track of.

I use Mappoint 2002 as well. (A GPS is definately recommended if in budget -$100 and up but well worth it!)

With a GPS:

In NS you can export your info into a summary file and the program Stumbleverter will plot all your APs on the map for you automatically. This saves oh so much time.
