Re: New Geographic Statistics

Yes, I've always wondered where and how you find 36000 APs every month. Though I just had a scary thought...war flying -- still that is a lot of JetA or whatever the smaller planes run.

If you want, Dan Akroyd is supposedly working on a script for GB3....

Either that or there is a Ghost in your shell.

Re: Best SSID ever

One of the local county's sheriff's cars all broadcast as SHERIFF. I see lots of people trying to go that route and failing. FBI_survaillance_van (yes it was mispelled) fbi_rpd (don't they know the fbi doesn't share) fbi_cia (unlikely as one is domestic the other international) I've noticed that mos...

Re: Detecting WiFi, a kilometer away, with an Android?

With line of sight all you need is power or antenna gain. The last I knew the unofficial wifi link record was 140km. Done using 2 4m dishes between two mountain tops in Poland. There was a DefCon contest going for a while that made 70km in Nevada. You don't need to use a solid wok either. A spider(d...

Re: WiGLE not processing new files?

Ah, OK. There must be some massive file being munched then...
Says the guy who posted 45k new APs last month, and 202k new since January. Wish I drove a cab or something.

Re: Filtering Open Wifi

Why not just use the jigle (java) client on your pc and look by county? It has the option to sort open from secured. And yes I think the world is too dependent on Google. I like OSM because the map data is open source.

Re: Wigle Wifi for Android: Suggestions

Ive noticed with my Samsung Galaxy S2 running Gingerbread that the turning off the scanning doesn't seem to have any affect if Wifi is still turned on. I keep seeing points appearing on the screen and it still beeps if it detects new points. Phone is not rooted.

Re: My yard sale

This is from ages ago, do you still have any of this stuff or did it get binned? It's still here zip lock bag full. Want it all? Sure, as soon as I have a place for you to send it. I'm about 250 miles from my normal QTH. Not checking here as often as I should either. How much does it weigh all boxe...

Re: Ad-hoc networks starting with "HP"

Yes. All of the above. Also some devices running windows will advertise the last AP they were connected to as their adhoc name anytime they are powered on. I've noticed that the printers default to HPxxyyzz where xxyyzz is the last 3 bytes of the mac address.

Re: Call me stupid ...

Look at the section of the site for JiGLE and creating your own map packs in countries out side of the US. In the US, Maps are provided by our Govt under a public works license. If you look at OSM for instance, all of the USA is mapped from a huge data import they did from our Census Bureau. That is...

Re: User-Specific Map

I just realized that I was not paying attention when the JiGLE Application Update occured. So my above comments apply to 0.7.7 I have not yet tried it with 8.0.

Re: User-Specific Map

While not optimal, I've found if I use JiGLE, I can get a close approximation of what you are looking for. Select only found by you, then enable a date filter that covers a recent arbitrary date range, I try for a view that has a road I knew when I last drove it. When it appears/disappears, I've rea...

Re: question on if the parsing engine would make a connectio

Ok thanks, looks like I know what this winter's programming project is. When weather is ugly, merging those data files will look like a good use of time. some of those GPS traces have 15000 points at 1 second intervals.
