DotSpatial Release Candidate 3

DotSpatial is developed by members of the MapWindow GIS open source team, and the broader OSGeo .NET developer community. Please join the OSGeo .NET mailing list . You can also see a list of our steering committee members and join our growing list of volunteers

Project Vision: DotSpatial aims to provide a free, open source, consistent and dependable set of libraries for .NET, Silverlight and Mono, enabling developers to easily incorporate spatial data, analysis, and mapping into their applications thereby unleashing the massive potential of GIS in solutions for organizations and communities of all types in a nonrestrictive way.

High Speed Video Demos: If you are new to DotSpatial, start by watching these videos. Note that the name spaces have changed a bit from these videos, but this is a great way to see what DotSpatial is all about.

WiFi Geolocation

Tool Update – WiFi Geolocation

WiFi geolocation : that is, taking the MAC address for a WAP and performing a lookup in an online database to determine if there are lat/longs available for that address.  If there are, then you can convert the lat/long coordinates into a Google map for visualization purposes.

One alternative appears to be; there seems to be a free search functionality that requires registration to use.  Registration is free, and you must agree to non-commercial use during the registration process.  Fortunately, there’s a Net::WiglePerl module available, which means that you can write your own code to query WiGLE, get lat/longs, and produce a Google Map…but you have to have credentials to use it. I use ActiveState Perl, so installation of the module was simply a matter of extracting the file to the C:\Perl\site\lib\Net directory

The script takes a WAP MAC address, or a file containing MAC addresses (or both), at the prompt, and allows you to format your output (lat/longs) in a number of ways:

– tabular format
– CSV format
– Each set of lat/longs in a URL to paste into Google Maps
– A KML file that you can load into Google Earth

All output is sent to STDOUT, so all you need to do is add a redirection operator and the appropriate file name, and you’re in business.

Getting WAP MAC Addresses
So, the big question is, where do you get the WAP MAC addresses?  Well, if you’re using RegRipper, the plugin will retrieve the information for you.  For Windows XP systems, you’ll want to use the plugin.

Here is the lookup page.
