This tool is available as part of Kismet when built from source, or in the kismet-logtools package, as of
KML is an XML-based markup language for use with Google Earth.
The simplest way to convert a kismetdb log to a KML is to simply run the conversion tool:
$ kismetdb_to_kml --in some-kismet-log-file.kismet --out some-kml-file.kml
Add more status output to the console while
kismetdb_to_kmlruns a SQL Vacuum command to optimize the database and clean up any journal files. Skipping this process will save time on larger captures.
kismetdb_to_kmlcomputes a final average across all the packets seen; this can be more precise than the running average Kismet computes. If packets were not logged, or to save time and processing, passing
--basic-locationwill use the average location computed runtime, instead.
