I found a way to take the cached access point data from JiGLE and turn it into a KML file that can be imported into Google Earth application (http://earth.google.com/). The online Google map at http://wigle.rustyredwagon.com is great, but using and sorting through Google Earth is much faster. I’ve got a bit of cleanup to do on the script but I plan to post it tomorrow.

An example of the output can be found here:

Got a bug report....

In Kismet, if the AP is running with broadcast SSID turned off, and if it doesn't discover the SSID through association response, the logged ssid is "<no ssid>". When processed through the script, the kml file contains the line:
<coordinates><no ssid>,00:0B:FD:B8:11:13,0</coordinates>

GoogleEarth returns an error on this line, specifically:
Parse Error: expected equal sign at line: ##

Obviously it's the <> around the "no ssid".

I'm not a PHP expert, but I'll beat on it a bit.

Ok, I get to eat crow.

This script does NOT work on the cache files that are downloaded by the DiGLE client. Apparently the file format syntax is different.

It should just be tilda delimited and in the same order.

I can confirm it works nicely with Jigle but not with digle... I used it to pull all the AP's in and around Calgary out (20,000+) and fed them through, and it worked like a charm. Surprisingly Google Earth even managed to load the file without locking up my slowest desktop (athlonxp 1600 w/ 256mb ram).

Awesome work! This should make tommorow's trip more productive!

Tilde delimited, yes. Same order, no. I have an updated version that does work, forgot the exact specifics off the top of my head, I'm sitting in an airport at the moment. You want a copy to your email?

Sure. By the way, my site is down right now because I exceeded my bandwidth for the month. It will be back Monday.

GoogleEarth returns an error on this line, specifically:
Parse Error: expected equal sign at line: ##
What's wrong ?

That's not what I mean. What's at that line number in the KML file?
