NetStumbler and Kismet log wireless access point and GPS data to their own specified file formats, binary formatted .NS1 for NetStumbler and a combination of .CSV .GPS .XML text and xml formats for Kismet. As you can see, a conversion process is needed to convert data into wi-scan format for StumbVerter.
Just as an overview, there are several different file formats that are used to log wardriving sessions. At least five file formats exist:
CWGD (Common Wireless GPS Data)
Kismet .GPS .CSV .XML

Meanwhile, NetStumbler’s built-in converters and several scripts written by Medic and c0nv3r9 are available and sufficient for converting between these formats (blackwave, p.1).
