With Kismet, you have another option for visualizing your wardriving data. A Linux program, gpsmap, is bundled with Kismet. Given a Kismet GPS file, gpsmap will download a map from Expedia, Mapblast, and Terraserver and plot the wireless access points. Gpsmap also allows you to visualize the route taken during the wardriving session.

Now that you are familiar with the hardware and software that wardrivers use to detect wireless access points, I will discuss two methods that could be used to detect passing

Since Kismet is a passive scanner, these methods cannot be used to detect users of that program.
