Hi everybody,
I am pleased to announce that I have a very nice working proof of  
concept for hotspot status using the brand new Google Maps API.
You can have a look at my demo here :

Please note that the data are bogus, it's a snapshot of the database  
from a month ago and the status are completely random. I tracked down  
about 20 GPS coordinates, I have a still lots to do, but that's bread  
and butter compared to the JavaScript programming.

If you're interested in the technical aspects :
I'm using a XML document geneated by Wifidog containing all the data  
about the hotspots ( this is actually taken from my current  
developpment copy of the Wifidog code ). The document is loaded  
dynamically using XMLHttpRequest on the client-side and parsed to  
display on a map.

Have fun, I'm open to comment as this is only a demo.
