    Wireless Survey Tools

    Sharing few resources, I am aware of, that could help in wireless survey e.g. physically locating the AP (Access Point):

    For locating an AP outside:
    Use GPS with Kismet and parse the result to google earth

    Airmagnet Survey (Paid) -> Design and deploy wireless LANs for optimal performance, security and compliance
    AirMagnet Survey | Wireless Network | Fluke Networks

    HeatMapper -> The Free Wi-Fi Coverage Mapping Site Survey Tool
    Ekahau HeatMapper - The Free Wi-Fi Coverage Mapping Site Survey Tool

    Please feel free to add in more to it.

    Ok. HeatMapper too claims to be free but I haven't use either of them. Aircrack suite has helped a lot till date and infact have never confronted with any specific requirement to map the coordinates.

    In wifi survey GPS is only helpful in case you are wardriving no other use comes in to my mind. :-)

    Has anyone tried a GPS that works with a laptop, reliably. I need one.
    Although I bought one from ebay. It doesn't get a fix on the position almost always.

    So if you know something that works with a laptop, it would be cool.


    UPDATE:
    I actually got it working. Just that line of sight is quite important in this.

    Hi, let me begin here.
    Here’s a useful little link to a free app that I use on Mac OS X to see all dead zones without coverage and optimize hotspot placement. Basically, you need to make a map of your area and save it as an image file – I did it the easy way: I opened Google Earth, found my location and took a screenshot of my house from as close as I could get, from above. Check its homepage here FREE Wireless WiFi Site Survey Software for MAC OS X
