When the course is taught outside of North America, the script is required for the wireless warwalking range mapping exercise in which the students collect wireless information around the conference facilities using kismet and a GPS.

Not to rain on your parade, but why use an external script, with all the intermediate manual steps described on your webpage, when there allready has been posted a patch to gpsmap, which incorporates expedia as a mapsource in the program :

I'm guessing that the only reason dragorn haven't included it in the latest revision of kismet, either is because he didn't see that post, or to avoid having the Wrath of Seattle based Lawyers descend upon him.
