I made up a trace of:






and I put
NSMutableArray *m;
m = [[WaveHelper trace] trace];
[m writeToFile:@"/kmtrace.trace" atomically:YES]; //themacuser investigation 2 - 1
NSLog(@"Written Trace");
into setShowTrace so I can dump the trace whenever i want.

PropertyListEditor can open it and gives me: (all on one line - I added the linebreaks so it matches the data above).

However, opening the XML file in TextEdit gives me:


I'm still trying to work out what it means. Anyone have any idea?

Yeah, realtime isnt very useful IMO as well. Because when you're wardriving, you don't exactly have internet access (at least most of us don't, but not with the bandwidth to use google earth anyway if you DO have some kind of cellular broadband).

I'll have a look at how the trace works.

Actually, I've got it about 2/3 done already (for "export" functionality - no real-time tracing yet). It looks like it should be pretty straightforward to export all the network positions to KML, however I'm a bit stumped on how to export the trace (just because I'm having difficulty decoding how the trace is stored). If someone can come up with a bit of code that will translate a trace to a sequence of lat-long pairs, I can certainly do the rest.

Real-time probably isn't as useful as export anyway.

I was thinking of doing exactly that. I can write the GUI code if you wish, and add the function handlers. I'd be fine with writing the underlying code myself, but if you want to do it you can.

... and I was just thinking yesterday about using KisMAC to generate real-time KML output for a network link into Google Earth. Would only be a small step from my existing GPS-to-Google Earth program. Anyone else interested in either real-time or "export" functionality to send data to Google Earth? I can write the code to produce the output, but would need someone else to do the menu/GUI work (although I might see if I can figure out the Export thing myself).

Ohh I almost forgot! I've been asked to start learning everything I can about GIS (global information systems). Mostly about mapping database data onto arial imagery. Just thought I'd add that. =)

I just presented my senior thesis on a similar topic yesterday! I will be releasing the app as open source later today and I will post the link here.
