Historical Notes
March 2018
wow, it's been that long huh?
now using git repo at
fixed issues with running the webpage on PHP 7.2.3, it should be good now.
tested on PHP 5.6.30 7.0.27-0+deb9u1 and 7.2.3
had to create an array properly and not let PHP fix my mistakes for me. :)
more to come!
June 2017
Added CSS values
First pass at Optimization for Node and Topology array handling
Moved several control values to user-setting.ini
Including: Server Settings, Messages, Starting Coordinates and Zoom
GSE: Moved map specific details to meshmap-settings.inif
GSE: Optimized link building
GSE: Cloned map.php to map_display.php for additional ( non-mesh ) features
GSE: Moved Icon and Colour definitions to meshmap-settings.ini
GSE: Moved all map building infrastruures to individual routines.
GSE: Added ( Additional Markers ) - These are additional filtered non-mesh markers.

late march 2017
Many, many updates and changes.
Almost a complete rewrite.
No longer requires "olsr-topology-view",
or wxc's original or build_topology.php.
Also no longer requires jsontomysql.php or
The temporary files called mesh_hosts and are no longer needed as well.
You can safely delete all of those files if you had them.
This one script should do it all.
It will run different parts at different times.
Now using "netcat" to get the olsr info, this was Mark's (N2MH) idea.
Turns out there are "pure" PHP ways to do that, do not even have to make a call to "nc" any longer.
Mark also caught a bug and now there is a better way to find the wifi mac address that should work for all devices.
Moved many things into the wxc_functions file.
Alternate IP to host name solution, since PHP's own function would sometimes fail.
Moved wxc's totally site-specific stuff into an alternate file that is not required.
early march 2017
sorted "Linked to:" popup list by distance and cost
this was easiest by putting the distance info into the database.
see the scripts for more info
Can now tell the difference between "real" DTD links and those that are linked in some other way (mostly)
Additionally, This page is becoming more and more modified to do things based on which "host" it is running on
At SBARC we currently have 3 different "versions" of this page, plus my system I use for testing
I was starting to lose track of what was where so it has all become one now.
if you are running on a different host then things will default to "normal".
early feb 2017
changed to use only free (as in beer) maps
OSM, openTopo, Stamen maps, etc.
early jan 2017
migrated to use mysqli
also added the mapbox "topographic" maps (which suck)
mid dec 2016
yet another update (due to request)
added distance and bearing info to the linked node listing in the station popup
more updates dec 2016
added lat, lon to the popup info
added channel and bandwidth info to the station popups
out of date (and maybe beta) firmware now shows up as red text in the station popups
changed the bottom "attributions" section a bit, formatted it differently and added in the number of stations and links shown. :)
v.03 early December 2016
added fullscreen control.(mid november 2016).
the basemap layers are now able to be switched.
there is differentiation between the different bands.
now more info in the stations popup.
you can now filter out different bands and different types of links on the map.
the node's name now shows up if you hover over the marker.
I think I'm now able to pick out the tunnels vs. any other type of link... maybe
v.02 early Nov 2016
new "radio" icons
"two way" link lines
legend overlay
v.01 inital map Oct 2016
