If you have a GPS unit, you can attach it to your computer in order to log latitude/longitude coordinates of any signals discovered. This can be used later to generate your own maps, or upload your lists to sites such as »wigle.net and »secure-wifi.net

Also, if you have a mapping program, such as Streets and Trips or Mappoint, you can have live position tracking to show where you are (and how to get out whenever you're lost). In order to allow NetStumbler and the programs mentioned above to work, you will need a virtual communications port driver and a TCP/IP comm port server. Comfoolery is a common choice and will let you split one port to many virtual ports for the various programs to use.
