While wardriving over time, there is a lot of data that is collected. WiGLE Wi-Fi has collected data for over 15 years. That data shows the density of wireless networks, frequency usage, and even encryption methods. There is some amazing data, even in the most remote locations such as Pikes Peak.
- [Instructor] With the many different aspects to our…wireless world, there are some easy trends to notice.…So we will quickly go over some things happening…in the wifi realm, but understand…the problem set reaches beyond it.…WiGLE has been collecting data on wireless networks…for over a decade, it's basically a, gee isn't this neat,…engine for learning about the spread…of wireless computer usage.…Not my words, that is actually how they describe themselves.…
Their data has been used in educating the public,…research projects, site surveys, journalism,…finding usable networks, and fun hobbies.…Their data collection isn't everything,…but when you plot some of their statistics,…you notice some pretty cool stuff.…Here is a graph showing the amount of wireless…networks they find daily, and have found…since the inception of the program.…So they are finding somewhere around…250,000 wireless networks a day,…and 30 to 80 million wireless networks a year.…
What's this look like when you remove…the duplicates or the error in the data?…
