Peter,

What you have described a WiFi visualizer worked on by some
illinois.edu students who I mentored several years ago.  They called
their visualizer Argos.  They did not produce much useful code,
but they wrote a nice report. :-) I listed the visualizer
as a NetBSD project idea for the Google Summer of Code 2008,
<http://www.netbsd.org/contrib/soc-projects.html#wifi_viz>.  No student
picked it up.

Also, have a look at Jigsaw.  Last time I looked, the visualization
component was not very strong, but it produces the global WLAN
measurements that one needs in order to diagnose non-trivial performance
problems.

Let me know if I can be any help in your project.

Dave
