Usage

This module needs network access in order to communicate with Google so it can triangulate the provided access points.

var geocodeWifi = require('geocode-wifi')
 
var towers = [
  { mac: '0e:1d:41:0c:22:d4', ssid: 'NodeConf', signal: -72 },
  { mac: '01:1c:ef:0c:21:2a', ssid: 'NSA Lobby', signal: -2 },
  { mac: 'e0:53:41:92:00:bb', ssid: 'Microsoft Taco', signal: -89 }
]
 
geocodeWifi(towers, function (err, location) {
  if (err) throw err
  console.log(location) // => { lat: 38.0690894, lng: -122.8069356, accuracy: 42 }
})

Geocode-wifi have special support for the node-wifiscanner module. This means you can parse the output of node-wifiscanner directly into geocode-wifi:

var geocodeWifi = require('geocode-wifi')
var wifiScanner = require('node-wifiscanner')
 
wifiScanner.scan(function (err, towers) {
  if (err) throw err
 
  geocodeWifi(towers, function (err, location) {
    if (err) throw err
 
    console.log(location) // => { lat: 38.0690894, lng: -122.8069356, accuracy: 42 }
  })
})
