So clearly this results in a pretty cool set of images. What I’d really like, though, is a 3-d graph depicting signal strength on a 2-d field.

Imagine if we replaced the rod with a disc composed of a set of concentric circles of lights. Suppose the number of circles that light up correlates with the strength of the signal, so that more signal implies more light. Head to the city park, wander around in a grid pattern with this device, point the camera down from a building, and take a long exposure of the results. Signal would be represented as pools of light.

Someone go do this for me. Send me pictures!
