I was thinking of writing an location awareness app using the proximity of the phone to various wireless networks on the campus where I work - would you know of an API to get me started on this?

Thanks,

Frank

Sounds like you want to use COARSE location (as opposed to the FINE location provided by GPS): http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/location/strategies.html

if you need proximity. Then my answer is try to use Nearbytes SDK. it will help you just like NFC. i guess. CMIIW.
