> > I'm looking for a way to record new data with Kismet for a specific BSSID given a specific interval. So, for example: Kismet locates a network 00:11:22:33:44:55 and records the (given a working GPSD) lat/lon/signal strength. Is it possible to have Kismet record this info as normal, and then after a specific interval record new info? So that assuming one specific network, you could record varying information over time as you move from one location to another?

Looking forward to seeing that someday... If you hadn't already guessed, I was looking to use Kismet for triangulation. It would be a simple task, if able to collect signal strength from different locations. Thanks, and keep up the great work.
