Well in order to do something like that you need to implement a network discovery module.

I suggest you can use SNMP (simple network management protocol) or you could attempt to ping every host on the network and when you get reply its means there is a device with that IP, then you can build the map according to the hop count.

well if your referring to the GUI aspect look at the QT documentation if your referring to the functionality aspect then QT has nothing to do with it unless your using QT functions to ping the hosts (QT is just a framework)
