Bacon - The Network Stumbler and Microsoft Streets and Trips Mash-Up
Hello to all the war drivers out their. I have whipped up a little program that will utilize Network Stumbler and Microsoft Streets and Trips to make you war driving experience a little more fun. Now their is only about 6 hours of labor into programming this program so if you have a problem with it drop me a line and I will try to correct it. So far I have managed to get it to work flawlessly on a P4 2.4Ghz/WinXP SP3/1Gb Ram machine.
You will need:
---> Network Stumbler 0.4+ and Microsoft Streets and Trips 2007+ installed in their installers pre-defined (default) location. . .
---> A working GPS receiver like the Delorme USB LT-120. . .
---> Network Stumbler's GPS feature activated. . .
Read the info on the about dialog. . .
The Visual Basic 6 Service Pack 6 Runtime Re-Distribution pack has been included. . .
I do hope you enjoy it!
Can you to explain a little bit what are the features ?
Well it is not really feature rich as of now. Like I said previously I do not have much labor into it as of yet. The main function of the program, to import Network Stumbler's scan results then format that data into a format in wich Microsoft Streets and Trips Data Import Wizard can understand then have Microsoft Streets and Trips plot those detections on it's map is about all their is as of now. You can do this manually and have it do it on a 30 second interval.

I plan to program some "intelligence" into it to make it understand the Network Stumbler scan results and then have it say flag a result wich has very good signal strength or have it flag results that match certain SSIDs etc. If you have any questions, comments and or concerns just let me know.
As of now just think of it as a being very early in development. Alpha stage. I do not plan to make money with this program. This program is strictly a created for convienece. I do beleive it will mature quit fast given I get some input.
