What is this?

This is a repository containing the pseudonymous access point logs of one week university life (Fri to Fri).

Additionally we have included various tools for working with the data.

data/           Data files and CouchDB import script.
couchapp/       Web application for crowd-sourcing the process of
                collecting geolocation for the access points

Visualization

Static visualization:

visualization

Also I created an animated live visualization, which enables you to view the load at certain times. This is a web application based on the THREE.js framework. However, it is slow and needs to be optimized. The application has been created as a CouchApp and you need to follow the instructions below, to get it running. It is then accessible via your browser at the URI http://localhost:5984/uulm-networking/_design/visualization/index.html.

ToDo

  • Geolocations for all Access Points have to be added as a database file

Data

Execute cd data; tar xfv data.tar.gz to uncompress the files.

./data/wlan-client-authlog.anon

Entries are created whenever a WLAN-Client associates with an Access Point.

The file ./data/oui.txt from the IEEE website enables you to resolve the OUI.

./data/access-points-desc.asc

Contains a mapping of DNS-AP to DESCRIPTION. Separated by \t.

DNS-AP	DESCRIPTION
aea-5-ap1.rz.uni-ulm.de	"Albert-Einstein-Allee 5 | Pavillon | Seminarraum"

Import data into CouchDB

Make sure the files ./data/wlan-client-authlog.anon and ./data/access-points-desc.asc exist! Install CouchDB and create a new database uulm-networking, e.g. by using http://localhost:5984/_utils/.

$ pwd 
uulm-networking/
$ cd ./data/
$ make couchimport
$ make clean

You should now have 526359 rows in your database.

Import visualization into CouchDB

$ pwd 
uulm-networking/
cd ./visualization/
make push

Access the frontend via http://localhost:5984/uulm-networking/_design/visualization/index.html.
