WifiSlam

Wi-Fi Slam is an Android application that let's you record locations based on the set of surrounding Wifi networks. When you define a location, the tool checks the BSSIDs of wireless networks and stores the combination. For each location you can additionally set a photo to describe the location. Wi-Fi Slam was intended to create location-based games in buildings where GPS, the traditional way of positioning outdoors, is not working. Wi-Fi Slam can be used in any building which has sufficient wireless networks to differentiate between locations.
