gWiFi: Using GoogleMaps to find free WiFi
July 23rd, 2005

Using the Google Map API, to power the site Suramya Tomar created gWiFi to make it easier for the road-warrior’s, students, free loaders etc to find locations that offer free wireless internet access in the New York City area by showing all free wireless nodes on a Map of New York.

Tomar says to have created gWiFi because nothing like this already existed and it is something that a lot of people will find useful. In a request to collaborate he adds:

The best way to help me would be to point me to a geocoder program/Create a Geocoder program that is not as picky as If thats a bit to heavy for you (As its for me) you could instead volunteer to help manually fix the address that Geocoder chokes on“.
