Locating access points

I had a quick thought.  At our house we can see a bunch of 802.11 networks, but I have no idea of where the access points are located.

I was thinking that there would be a neat way to locate the access points:

  • Setup three computers running iStumbler

  • Gather the signal strength of all of the visible networks

  • Use that information and the location of the computers to determine where the networks are.

It would be cool if this was added to iStumbler or a plugin for iStumbler would do this automatically
