Re: How to merge Kismet´s netxml files for use with Giskismet
From: Nils <nils () hemmann de>

 I've modified GISKismet to handle subsequent war drives and update
found APs based on stronger signals plus some other minor improvements.
Jabra is currently reviewing the code.

But I'm working on new additions to it. E.g. drawing a circle around
found APs with the radius equal to the distance between strongest and
weakest signal to indicate the coverage.
I'm almost done I just need a function in Perl to create a circle in a
.kml file for Google Earth based on the midpoint (AP strongest signal)
and the already calculated radius (dist. between GPS coord. strongest
and weakest signal)
For various calculation I'm already using the Math::Trig module.
This is an example for a proper circle as .kml file:

This is an example of data available for the function:
radius 0.0711783202504164   (km)
GPSLon 6.077177
GPSLat 50.61324       (somewhere in the middle of nothing in Europe ;-)

Any good Perl programmer who could help me out?

 Nice offer Robin!
No offense but this time I had to do it on my own. :-)  A good
motivation to do some Perl programming after quite some years.
I managed to adapt giskimet the way I wanted it to be.
Right now I got in touch with Jabra basically asking for permission to
change his script or a way to contribute.
I'll keep you all posted.
No problem, the offer was there but I'm not unhappy not to have more work to do.

Sure Jabra will accept the patch, he has always been cool like that.


By the way Robin, I found your name in the CHANGELOG.txt  ( * added
digininja's ignore-gps patch. )
