With a little bit of prodding, Wigle (www.wigle.net) now recommends that 
  kismet users support Open Street Map.

Everytime a user uploads a logfile to Wigle, they will receive an 
uploadconfirmation page, which includes this recommendation, a link to 
the OSM main site, and a link to Christopher Schmidts exceptionally good 
Kismet2gpx.py script.
Christopher, if you read this, could you please contact me, since wigle 
would like to offer the script as download (or possibly make a online 
converter), but won't do it untill the license of the script is clear.
A PD or attribution license included in the script at your site, would 
do nicely.

Work is in progres, so Wigle can use OSM data for their webmaps 
(http://wigle.net/gps/gps/Map/onlinemap2) outside of TIGER data 
coverage, probably based on the planet.osm dumps, so as not to put 
strain on the db/tile servers.

Work is also in progress so kismet users can utilize OSM (osmarender 
layer only) as a mapsource in kismet's GPSMAP plotting utility 
(http://www.die.net/doc/linux/man/man1/gpsmap.1.html), via OJW's 
previously posted mapgenerator link.
