So this is the only entry i have where i’ve built an app that wont work from day 1.

“Oh why andrew, why?” you might say, but as I shrug, this was not my fault. So a while back Samy Kamkar produced his geolocation proof of concept code which works awesomely at being able to take an AP MAC Address to GPS Co-ordinates. Sadly now however Google location services seem to be broken at the moment with both Samy’s and my code being horribly broken with the results either being the same GPS Co-ordinates or 0,0.

This happened of course only *after* i had completed my app (had to do multithreading and slap a design on it) .

But anyway, here is the basic idea of it:

  • Recieve in a NON GPSd airodump-ng csv file
  • Parse out all of the AP MAC Addresses
  • Take these to GPS co-ordinates to street addresses via opennominatim
  • Return this response either as a KML file (plotted on google earth)
  • OR as a text file to simply display the results

So anyway, you can have a look at the application over at http://andrewmohawk.com/airodumpvsgeo/ . Currently still in my shite naming ‘convention’ this one is called “AirodumpvsGEO”.
