Best Programm for finding APs in the air

Thanks Adrian Granados-Murillo for a great tool

I’m a Network Engineer and measure lot of sites. If I need to know what is in the air, I open your 'WiFi Explorer' all important things as Beacon rates, Vendor, Signal, SNR, Channel, Channel width, Streams, Stations, Mode, Country Code, Max Rare, Security and Last Seen is displayed.
I never found a other tool who have all this information together in one tool. Filter and order function is also very good.
