       Draws a blue track along the traveled path, based  on  the  track  data
       saved by Kismet.

       Draws the bounding rectangle around the extreme points of each network.

       Estimates the range of a network based on the average  center  and  the
       distance  to  the  closest extreme corner.  Not exact, but often useful
       for estimating the range of the network.

       Convex hull of all sample points for each network.  This  will  display
       the exact detected range of the networks.

       Draws a dot for every detected packet point.

       By  far  the  most CPU intensive, power interpolation forms a grid over
       the image and attempts to interpolate the power for points that  aren’t
       directly  sampled.  For this graph to be a reasonable representation of
       reality, samples around the entire area, preferably forming a  grid  or
       mesh, should be taken.

       Simply draw a dot in the averaged center of each network

       Labels  are drawn in the order requested in the list.  Labels are drawn
       based on the center of the network and the label orientation.  There is
       some  logic  to  attempt  to  prevent  label  overlap, but on extremely
       crowded maps it will be unavoidable.

       Draws a legend on the bottom of the map with  the  coordinates,  scale,
       total  sampled  networks,  networks  visible  on  the current plot, and
       dynamic information based on the plots selected and the  network  color
       methods requested.


       While  not  technically  a  bug, source 1 (MapPoint) are nonfunctional.
       The vendors have changed their serivice  in  such  a  way  that  it  is
       impossible to download the map images from them.  GPSMap still supports
       these sources, but ONLY for predownloaded images  that  may  have  been
       kept  previously.  Attempts to use these sources when a user map is not
       available will fail.
