    Default what is the used of logging??

    hello guys

    im clueless of what is the used of logging in inssider maybe it would give big help to our thesis project coz were going to measure 24/7 and its quite tiring. maybe this one could help.. i am planning to just leave my laptop for many hours i already start logging and save it and let the inssider do the task for every hours..my question is can i retrieve the data(the complete data showed in inssider) for every hours?? or can i still see the behavior of the signals for every hours??...

    Hi angel,

    The uses of logging are many and varied; but in general inSSIDer will keep track of all the relevant data associated with the AP's that your WiFi adapter senses. The same data that you see displayed on the screen: MACid, Time, Signal level, SSID etc.
    If you have a compatible serial/Bluetooth GPS adapter you can also add lontitiude and latitude points to the log.

    InSIDDer will keep logging until your log file fills up (ie you run out of disk space)

    The data can be converted and if you have GPS data you can plot the points using maps from Google Earth.

    People have posted different programs to analyse the output data in different ways ...

    you need to be clear about what information you are looking for.

    cheers

    Hi angel,

    Yes you can retrieve the log file; on XP it defaults to logfilename.gpx in "My Documents" folder.
    You may have changed the name before you started logging.
    If you see a .gpx file in that folder it's probably the one.

    If you don't run XP then click on "Change log filename" under the "File" tab
    that should tell you which folder the logfile is in.

    If there was no GPS attached when you did the log it will still have all the data about the AP's except for the Latitude & Longitude info from the GPS.

    (If your pc was sitting on your desk while you did this log then the Latitude & Longtitude data is constant because the gps device did not move )

    hope this help

    cheers

    angel,

    mayim is correct. You can do a search for a .gpx file to find where your log is. Also, it is very true that if you never moved your computer, then your lat/long will be constant.

    mayim,

    Thank you for contributing useful information for other users. We really appreciate it.
