    Very nice picture indeed!

    Which software did you use to generate this heat map ?

    Very pretty — but very strange. What’s the horizontal border 3/5 of the way down under which there is very little wi-fi? Are there any explanations for that?

      not sure, it seems as if this has something to do with apple’s database …

      It’s obviously the lasting results of the Berlin Wall! Or perhaps a further, WiFi-blocking wall has been built without anyone noticing?

    • Hoolio says:

      That’s the Berlin Wall ;)

      Intresting recursive problem ;-)

      There are other areas where the data looks clipped, like at the middle right part or the lower part of the lighed area at the top.

    Just a wild speculation: Berlin Wall?

    Could it be the berlin wall

    East and west?

    Looks like the data comes in cells or is broken up into grids…

    Habe gerade diese Projekt gefunden. Wäre etwas für eine Zusammenarbeit.

    Translation by Google: “I just found this project. Would be something to work with.”

  10. Great work! I was hoping somebody would take the initiative to do this.

    I’ve made a Mac script to tag Places in iPhoto and Aperture using the data. Check it out on my website:

    And if you link to me, I’ll link to you :)
