Hi!

I hope you checked this list:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_wireless_community_networks_by_region

:-)

There were already few times people were analyzing existing wireless
networks. I think you should get into the contact with those
researchers. (At least I know that I had to answer interview questions
few times already.) Currently, as far as I know, part of this current
EU project is to also analyze existing networks. I would recommend
that you get into the contact with them:

http://confine-project.eu/

And of course with everybody involved in International Summit for
Community Wireless Networks.

I am involved with wlan slovenija, http://wlan-si.net/.
