It's been a while since I've looked at the world map and it has become apparent that people have been using Wigle on their intercontinental flights. Neat to look at but doesn't seem have have any practical value. Is there a way to filter out networks based on elevation? I'm too lazy to look at the raw data but if Wigle processes elevation data, we can possibly filter out networks discovered over 10,000 feet where appropriate.

We do a fair bit of filtering already; honestly a lot of the problems with points right now are issues with our cluster detection. We have a new implementation in testing, but haven't rolled it out.

Where you see points "smeared" on the map, look for the two major population centers the points lie between. We should probably "stick" the point to one of those places.

Fwiw, it looks far worse than it is the further zoomed out on the map you are. Pick a cluster and zoom in, as the display resolution increases, the points turn out to be sparse, and balanced on the knife edge of our old cluster detection system.

We're working on it, but we all have day jobs, and the clustering infra is such a big change that it's hard to address. As a stopgap, you can filter by date and QoS and discard low confidence points in the meantime.
