Without a GPS receiver how you kismet know your location? Without knowing your location, how will you translate the logs to a map?

You'll need a GSP receiever. I recommend something inexpensive like the Globalsat BU-353 (http://www.globalsat.com.tw/eng/product_detail_00000044.htm). It's only $65 (USD) and works well with GPSd (http://gpsd.berlios.de/index.html).
