I’ve added the Birmingham wifi hotspots to https://fndout.com (thanks for the data )
You can also add and edit wifi hotspots (globally, not just Birmingham!).
I’d very much appreciate feedback on how to make this more useful for folk. (The site is “responsive”, so should be okay on mobile too.)
Because everyone hates creating accounts on sites (yeah, me too), I’ve create one for this forum.
Feel free to play, but keep in mind that it’s shared. And if you want to create your own account, please go ahead. It’s free!
To get to the wifi hotspots depends on where you are located. If you are in Brum, then you can use the #here tab. If not, then you can use the #home tab, which I have already set to be the centre of Birmingham (this tab will also work for folk located in Brum, of course).
You also need to set the filter (in the 4th tab) to “wifi hotspots”.
To get to the map that shows all the hotspots: click on the tab a second time. (I know this isn’t obvious, and I’m all ears for a better method.)
Click on a hotspot to get its data. (Note that there were no network names or passwords in the data, so those fields are always empty.)
Please go and play, and let me know your thoughts on making it more useful.
- I’m not in Brum, so I’ve not tested the geo-location. Geo has worked on everything else, so it should be okay.
- The “I used this!” button is a dummy. The idea being that there probably needs to be some way to “age” hotspots, so that they eventually get removed.
