>> maybe then we should create something like a plugin (or extension) for openstreetmaps, so we can append many kinds of meta-data (such as radar positions, gsm coverage, whatsoever) to existing maps... kinda points of interest (?) :)
is there software out there that takes
incomplete/overlapping/conflicting signal strength samples and makes a
best-guess effort at locating the source? it should work for cell,
the estimate would have to be pretty fuzzy if the samples are very
incomplete. eg, samples taken in following a straight path would give
you two candidate solutions for the location.
in any case, it seems the best place to run software like this is on a
server that has collected data from as many sources as it can get.
