Kismap, Kismet log mapping tool and network directory

Postby silviorelli » Tue Mar 24, 2009 6:38 am

Hello
I'd like to introduce KisMap ( KisMap Wireless Network Directory Main page ).
I'm a Computer Science student, I just finished developing KisMap as my thesis project for university degree.

KisMap collects .xml log files made by Kismet working together with a gps receiver.

You can upload your log files, KisMap will parse it and show the found networks on the map.

I think it could be a useful tool!

For now it's hosted on a tiny VPS so it's pretty slow...

Try it, I'll appreciate feedbacks!

You reinvented the wheel for your thesis project?

Maybe yes and maybe not :-)

Kismap is google maps based, it's faster, provides some details of the networks and makes on the fly parsing/displaying of the scanner's log files.

I wished to make something really simple and immediate to use, but there's a lot of geocaching logic behind it...

The networks are fetched asynchronously from the db and shown on google maps, wigle instead is based on static map representation, like an image that needs to be regenerated and it's slower.

Besides, kismap can show only the first 500 networks around the point you click, otherwise the javascript app would crash, and the geospatial query takes some seconds to execute on my really tiny server.

So kismap approach is quite different from wigle, but I'm not saying that's better.. It's just an experiment for my thesis and for learning programming Ruby on Rails

cool.

Are you massaging the gps data based on signal ? I noticed some of your APs appear away from the streets, like in the middle of soccer field.

No that was the project Streaker, Scruge, sir galahad and I did 4 years ago. I'm doing presentation on AOL chat room hacks next year.

Script-Kiddies are going to think you are the "candyman". It's like handing a crack addict their fixes. AHHAHAH

So you're saying I shouldn't say beakmyn three times in a row?

You can, as long as you prepare first.

Signal strenght is not so effective and depends too much on the receiver, on the antenna etc..

Instead I preferred to keep a weighted average of the coordinates where the AP has been found.
