By QoS map we mean a mapping of a particular QoS metric (e.g. signal strength) as a function of location. A user presented with this information, overlaid on a street map, can determine where to go in order to improve the quality of their current connection. Note that this tool does not simply indicate the presence of nearby access points, but actually maps the expected quality of the connection at all positions in space."</i><br /><br /><img src="http://www.pocketpcthoughts.com/images/web/2003/wey-20050222-QoSSeeker.jpg" /><br /><br />QoS Seeker is designed to interface with Microsoft Pocket Streets 2005, and with the aid of a Wi-Fi and GPS connection, the user can map out "Quality of Service" areas on an existing map provided by Pocket Streets. The product is still in its early days, but I'd certainly expect some nice things to appear in the near future. Have any of you tried this yet?

This could be very useful for setting up a community wireless network.
