Viewing wireless networks with wigle

I heard about the wigle and restyredwagon websites sites a while back, and finally had a chance to look through their content tonight. If you haven’t heard of these nifty sites, they both contain geographic maps of 802.11 wireless networks. Since the rustyredwagon website overlays wigle data on google maps, you can click a location and get a wealth of information (e.g., SSID, Mac Address, Vendors, and a keyword indicating if WEP/WPA is utilized) on the 802.11 networks in a region. You can also view satellite photos, which adds a whole new twist to scouting out 802.11 networks ( can we call this war surfing?). These sites are fricking awesome!
