Wireless Access Point Mapping

I am doing a site survey for possibly a new contract and am using kismet for analysis. The are several buildings and was wondering if there was a utility that will map out the location of access points o report and to help out with analyses. Is there anything in the open source community that can help?

kismet -- Wireless sniffing and monitoring SYNOPSIS
kismet [server-options] [--] [client-options] kismet_server [-nqs] [-t title] [-f config-file] [-c capture-source] [-C enable-capture-sources] [-l log-types] [-d dump-type] [-m max-packets-per-file] [-g gpshost:port] [-p listen-port] [-a allowed-hosts] [-N server-name] kismet_client [-qr] [-f config-file] [-s serverhost:port] [-g gui-type] [-c display-columns] DESCRIPTION
Kismet is an 802.11 layer2 wireless network detector, sniffer, and intrusion detection system. Kismet will work with any wireless card which supports raw monitoring (rfmon) mode, and can sniff 802.11b, 802.11a, and 802.11g traffic. Kismet identifies networks by passively collecting packets and detecting standard named networks, detecting (and given time, decloaking) hid- den networks, and inferring the presence of nonbeaconing networks via data traffic. kismet supports logging to the wtapfile packet format (readable by tcpdump and ethereal) and saves detected network informat as plaintext, CSV, and XML. kismet is capable of using any GPS supported by gpsd and logs and plots network data. kismet is divided into three basic programs, kismet_server kismet_client and gpsmap USAGE
kismet handles automatically starting kismet_server and kismet_client. kismet is installed as suid-root by default. It will drop privs to the user specified in kismet.conf immediately after binding and configur- ing the capture source. KISMET_SERVER kismet_server captures, dissects, and logs packets and GPS data. It is capable of running in `headless' mode with no display. Multiple clients (on multiple computers) can be connected to a single server. -I Set the initial channel for a channel source (source:channel) -x Forcibly enable the channel hopper -X Forcibly disable the channel hopper -t Set the title used for the %t field of the logfile template (Default: Kismet) -n Disable all logging -f Use an alternate config file -c Override capture source lines (type,interface,name). Refer to kismet.conf(5) for more information. Multiple capture source options can be specified for multiple sources. All sources provided here are automatically enabled unless an enable list is also supplied. -C Comma-separated list to override what capture sources are enabled. -l Override logging types, comma separated (dump, cisco, weak, csv, xml, gps) -m Override maximum packets logged per file -q Override sound option and run in quiet mode -g Override GPS host:port -p Override port to listen on for clients -a Override list of client IPs or network/mask blocks (comma separated) allowed to connect -s Run in silent mode (no console status information) -N Override server name for this instance of Kismet -v Print version -h Help KISMET_CLIENT kismet_client is a ncurses and panels interface which connects to the server and displays detected networks, statistics, network details, etc. -f Use an alternate config file -u Use an alternate UI config file -q Override sound option and run in quiet mode -s Override server host:port -r Attempt to automatically restablish the connection if the server terminates -g Override UI type (curses, panel) -c Override list of columns to display (comma seperated) -v Print version -h Help GPSMAP
gpsmap reads GPS and Network XML datafiles and plots networks on downloaded maps or user-supplied images (such as satellite photos). SEE ALSO
