Hi all,

In the last couple of days I've seen many "Is there a wireless network at X?" 
type posts.  From the sites I've found, most major centres in Australia have 
either a network, or a site with some info, but nothing exact.

http://brismesh.org is probably the best site I've found.  It has a list of 
nodes or potential nodes, their link status, three maps (network link, 
topographic (roads etc) and terrain) of the area covered, and a cool looking 
terrain elevation tool that will show the terrain level between two points.   
Go see it at http://brismesh.org/db2/

I've seen the site owner has had to purchase the elevation data from AUSLIG, 
($80 per tile, they are fairly large) but apart from this, the source to the 
mapping tools is free.

I just thought I would point this out - as it looks like an excellent tool that 
many of the other wireless network sites seem to be in need of :)

BTW: 3-5 person wireless network may be starting in Glenorchy/West Moonah 
(Hobart, TAS) early next year.  Email me if interested :)
