Can VisualRF calculate latitude &longitude of all the APs if it knows the lat/long of the corners of the map?

    In VisualRF on my campus map, I can "the" latitude and longitude, but I'm guessing that's for the center of the map? And for each building, there is also "the" latitude and longitude, but that's not altogether clear if that's the middle, or what if you have a floor plan that's not a rectangle and then what should I use?

    Is there any way to tell VisualRF the latitudes and longitudes of the four corners of the map, and then have Airwave calculate the latitudes and longitudes of the APs that I've placed on the map?

    It seems like I can't give VisualRF enough data to do interpolating, but it's really close to being able to do something really powerful.

    Is the question for Airwave VisualRf? 
    If so, the lat/long for AP or building is no use today. In the past, there was connection from AirWave to google maps (offline package to install) but that was discontinued years ago.
    Building orientation can be set for center of building/floors.
    Location of clients, Rogues will be done by AP triangulation. So Lat/long is not needed for AP's or floors.

    Yes, I mean Airwave.

    I'm actually thinking about 911 locations for VOIP phones, which doesn't need really high precision. 

    And of course there is still a "connection" between AirWave and google maps -- you right-click on the outline of your building on google maps where you know the AP is, select the lat/long, paste it into Airwave :-) A bit clunky, but it works!

    I meant - even though you can add the Lat/long of AP's or buildings, there is no connection to google to see the location of AP's or clients from google maps perspective. Say, you add the lat/long of buildings, the AP location  will not automatically show the lat/long. These are manual entries where the fields are present and you can add them.
