Mesh visualisation

A node could keep a dynamic model of its nearby mesh topology and display that topology, ideally continually updating, as a plan view of the network laid out using graph visualisation techniques (eg negative gravity) to distribute the nodes.

Instrumentation data could be added to the mesh view, possibly using zoom level and focus cues to manage displayed information density. This data could include Serval Identity (SID), Dialled Identity (DID), Subscriber Name, link activity, link latency, link throughput, link mode, battery level, phone model, etc.

There could also be a geo mode that used a map underlay and attempted to locate nodes geographically (see Distributed location service).
