aboutThis is a little something I hacked up to display the free Wi-Fi nodes from Portland's awesome Personal Telco Project using Google's new map API. It's just just a quick hack that I did for myself because I found I was always going back and forth between the nodes page and Google Maps to find nodes. I used geocoder.us to find longitude and latitude for each of the nodes, as Google's map API does not do this yet. I created a CSV file to hold all of the data, and then inserted this into a MySQL database (schema). Yeah, this was probably redundant work, but oh well. It was very zen, all that copying and pasting :-)
Click on a marker to see details and links for the node there. Enjoy!
