Of course, I've never fathomed how the folks in the top 10 can continue to add 10's of thousands of new points every month ... there can't be that many new places to deliver pizza, can there? Changing from active scanners to passive scanners. Adding multiple capturesources in order to maximise scan...

Of course, I've never fathomed how the folks in the top 10 can continue to add 10's of thousands of new points every month ... there can't be that many new places to deliver pizza, can there? I'm re-driving areas I haven't touched in a year or so, and finding anywhere from 25% to as much as 50% new...

Re: rofl

rest assured that we will bring the might and terror of our fully operational PokingSticks^tm down upon both the interns and the hamsters, until all the files are processed. So you're saying Monica is into the PokingStick^sm scene ?? That brings a whole new angle to the Monicagate scandal :shock: D...

Re: Removed old coordinates?

It would be usefull if after maybe a year of not showing up the AP goes into a "historical" map. I'm saying this because I'm in a college town, (Centre county PA (it's were Penn State is)) and there is a mass of AP's that no longer exist. And it is kind of hard to locate usefull data point in the m...

The webmaps are rendered in squares, the size of the dot is dependent on the number of points in that area, so in areas where there is less density, the dots are larger to make them easier to read (especially in sparsely populated areas). A side effect of going to the draggable maps is seeing these...

Different size APs

I noticed over the last few days that the pixel "dots" that represent APs on WiGLE maps have changed to different sizes. Many APs on one side of my town (State College, PA) are very small dots while the other side of town is mostly larger ("typical") WiGLE dots. This effect is only seen while the re...

I have a Magellan Meridian Plantinum. It's total overkill for wardriving, but if you have other hobbies like geocaching, it's a great GPS. There is a color version but IMHO it doesn't add much to it. Great functionality/features and of course you must have NMEA.

i've been playing around a (very) little with google maps. i've been experimenting with geo-photo blogging (is that a word?). the balloons contain HTML links to pics of a camping trip. not world-class content, but it was something to play with. depending on your resolution, you may need to zoom out...

Great upgrade on the webmaps. I also appreciate the more frequent updating of the databases the maps draw from.

Wait why doesn't that archived faq page work anymore? Also, if you guys have nothing to hide, why not post a big news headline on your homepage that says all the wi-fi data for Microsoft Virtual Earth came from Wigle? I'm down with what you do, I just think information in this type of community sho...
