This paper discusses wireless mesh network topology visualization tools and their requirements. It presents an interactive tool for visualizing mesh network topologies. The proposed tool uses the SVG - scalable vector graphics - web standard, which is based on XML, to build the network map. In a wireless mesh network, link quality varies quite often, therefore the visualization tool dynamically displays the quality metric of each link, in addition to presenting router configuration information and other network statistics. This work also introduces a configuration tool designed to adapt the topology view to different wireless mesh environments.
