A project log for Fire and Forget Wardriving

My project consists of a wardriving platform based around the Raspberry Pi that requires no maintenance after an initial setup.

Hey guys, wardriving isn't fun or useful without a way to visualize the data on a map. Instead of opening Google Earth on your personal computer and loading each KML file individually I have instead resorted to the Google Maps v3 Javascript API.

https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/examples/layer-kml

There is going to be a large number of  KML files to be imported. I don't know if there is an option to load KML files in batches. I think a better solution would be merging all the KML files in a directory into a single one and then hosting it somewhere. That way the file can be updated with new information and new merged KML files but the name will remain the same, reside at the same address, and everytime the Javascript map runs it only has to load 1 file.
