In a blow to the networking, security, and wardriving hobbyist communities today, Google has officially marked their decision to throttle wifi scanning for non-Google software on Android 9 and up as "Won't Fix" in spite of popular community support for a configurable option. https://issuetracker.goo...

that's interesting - nominally, Pie simply can't scan WiFi any faster - they limit it intentionally to 30s. Obviously, we're encouraging people to let Google know, but we haven't heard anything for a year now. I think a lot of people are carrying older devices, from before they nerf'd Androids scann...

Topic: Database cleanup needed?
The maps display the signal-strength weighted trilaterated centroid of the observations for a point; it's an average location. This means each point appears only once in the maps, at roughly its average location. There's a lot more detail available in the API, and in the individual detail queries as...
hey, we'd love to get the F-droid build updated, but we don't know who created/maintains it. We've continued to update the FOSS master branch on github, but could really use an update. If you're the creator, but don't have time to maintain it, send us a message or a PR to the FOSS branch?

Topic: Database cleanup needed?
WiGLE has a lot of different uses, including understanding the spread of WiFi over time and numerous historical and forensic applications - but if you're only interested in recent data, try setting the map date sliders and using the date ranges in the search forms and APIs!

looks like nothing but "WIFI,<BSSID>" rows in a CSV file - not one of our supported upload formats on its own.

here we go - globe image generation resurrected in a new and far more efficient form! https://wigle.net/images/wigle-world.png should update automatically every day. The coastlines and grids are generated using Flex Projector ( http://www.flexprojector.com/ ), so if people have suggestions for tweak...

We're looking into restoring this functionality, but it will probably take us a little while to arrange this - any interim solutions are ok by us!

Quick question: is anyone aware of a high-quality "Web Mercator" projection SVG world map we could use in building a rasterized nightly map replacement? We'd like to use the same projection system as the existing maps for simplicity of rendering. Cheers -ark EDIT: free-to use, non-commercial, so the...

we're aware that Wikimedia isn't super fond of the logo-inclusion - that many "WiGLE.NET"s might run afoul of the policy.

the position and signal strength get registered at the time the scan completes. It won't be "wrong" just far less complete than frequent scanning would provide.

The problem here is that the whole code line that made these nightly "overview" maps has been removed from production; we don't have to generate our own world maps or Geo tiles anymore (other people do that really well), and our new overlay generator isn't plugged into any whole-world context at tha...
