Determining WiFi hotspots from users location

Hello experts,


i want to make a simple application which shows wifi hotspots around a users current location. Is there any webservices or API's that would allow me to do this? I know google has geolocation API which uses wifi to help determine location, but I cannot find any information on retrieving actual wifi locations from it (doing it backwards). 


Does any one have any ideas on where/how I can accomplish this?
