Some background. I use the GPS primarily for road routing and I use a program to digitally split the GPS data stream into netstumber for its logging needs. So here it is, I was looking back though my logs and saw one NS1 file with about 800 AP's that due to a glitch at the time didn't have GPS coord...

Topic: Maps of the UK
Likewise you could generate your own by uploading and downloading parts of OpenStreetMap.org. They have a good part of the world mapped already and are constantly updating more. I use them as a better reference than TIGER which is at worst 10 years out of date. The other downside to TIGER is somethi...

Topic: just wondering.....
You can loosely find out for yourself, Download JiGLE, grab the Map Packs for Manhatten County, NY and whatever county Chicago is in then toggle back and forth updating them until no more points are added. the most points you can add in an update session is 64K but you can keep getting updates of th...

Topic: web map plot error
ok, not sure if the same subsystem feeds points into the queries that JiGLE makes, but that seems to be hung up as well. Ive been at Querying points for about 5 minutes, and authentication was successful for that. edit 1) Never mind, restarting JiGLE seems to have fixed it. edit 2) gah no I jumped t...

Topic: jigle and cells
I was wondering if JiGLE/DiGLE database file would ever be upgraded to display cell towers. I realize that development is stopped on DiGLE, but I sometimes use it for the different sorts it allows from JiGLE. I'm more hopeful that JiGLE will be updated, but I also don't want to break the functionali...

Topic: web map plot error
I keep getting a web map plot error. If I specify an address, the map properly moves to the new location but no points are plotted. Also probably unrelated, I had trouble logging in via ssl, to the main site and had to drop back to non ssl to get access to post an upload file. After enting the passw...

Topic: Jigle authentication fails
unable to authenticate. Windows 7. Using same password. Is there a new problem. Dratt., would have liked to see those access points. Also had to move properties file as above. This thread is over a year old and I currently have no problem attaching. You might want to start your own thread if you ar...
The files are being processed slowly. It took about 1.5 hours to drop my latest post from 89 to 78 in the queue. It does occasionally happen that someone dumps a huge pile of data on the servers that they need to crunch though. This more often than not happens on the weekend. there could also be a l...

Topic: Cell towers
hmm I had thought that the 'tower' was added to Wigle based something similar to WiFi points, triangulation on signal strength and phone gps location. I'm not sure if all towers are listed in the FCC to begin with. I know that a portion are listed with the FAA because they are over 199 feet AGL at w...

Forum: WiGLE News
I'm wondering if it would be possible to regen the map packs themselves. They have to be 5 or so years out of date. The bounding box coordinates should be the same but having updated roads would be nice. Or maybe to take some load off of you guys doing it. post the script* that does it and anyone wh...

Topic: inSSIDer native GPX format
It's actaully the G P X format, and a it's really simple XML data container. Here is an example file with one point and comments The description really isn't used very much anywhere, so you can probably ignore it while parsing. I work on inSSIDer, and wrote the new GPX I/O classes for inSSIDer 2.0....

Out of curiosity, does this only affect the web map? I may have seen something for some points under JiGLE but I had not narrowed down a repeatable case enough to say anything. I know from previous discussions that the web map doesnt get updated until 5-6am CST unless that has changed with using Goo...
