View Full Version : The WIGLE Wireless Map

So I stumbled on this (https://wigle.net/map?maplat=43.6460482&maplon=-79.38303350000001&mapzoom=7&startTransID=20010000-00000&endTransID=20160000-00000) today - a map of wireless networks and their concentrations around the world. I have no idea where they got their data from but it's fascinating to see how many wireless networks exists in any one particular area.

Thanks for that. Definitely nowhere close to realtime, mine's not there.

Mine is not there either. Maybe we have stealthy wireless - like ninjas, cradom! :Mischievous:

Yeah, I don't know where they get their data from (I don't see mind but mine isn't broadcast). It is fascinating, even if out of date, to see the concentration of WiFi networks.

Well, just to 'chime in' - I'm on a cul-de-sac and could zoom in so the name of the short street does appear but my Wi-Fi network (which is broadcasting) and that of a half dozen of my neighbors (which I can see using the Wi-Fi icon on my laptop) do not appear - now I'm on my fourth router (although my present SSID is just 2 1/2 years old).

I can't see mine, but I do see some network names I recognize from the area. Pretty cool, and thanks for posting this!
