A Network Map to see everything?

Are there any plans to add network map feature? 
It would be great to be able to see all devices on a map. 
How they are connected, whats connected/disconnected etc.
This would make troubleshooting much easier then having to look though a list of devices. 
 See screenshot below as example.  Thanks!

    I think a vector graph instead of using heavy raster images would be ideal. That way, the map could easily be serialized/deserialied to and from any device.

    My network hardware currently has this option so I personally don't need Fing to offer it.

    Most consumer grade and small business network hardware wouldn't support this feature. Something like this would require all the devices to perform the mapping, it's not possible for a single device to do it Without input from the other network devices. I have seen software claim it can create these maps, but every one of them required somebody to manually move the detected devices into the proper location in the mapping software.

    OMG I remember using that application in the screenshot, and I just added +1 to the vote.  This would be huge, if for nothing else but that 'wow' factor.

    This is a great idea, i used to use the program the post shows a picture of.  Cant remember the name of it, but Linksys purchased them, and then Cisco purchased Linksys and gave some lame excuse for ending support of the application.  I still have the software laying around someplace, but the servers are all gone to authenticate it.  
    FING, yes please do this.  Desktop app is a step in the right direction.
