Project Description:
As Philippe Bourcier explains, while he was surfing at NASA website, he realized they were giving out data sets from satellites. Bourcier saw a lot of potential on the provided data and after downloading a set he started doing some analysis and figuring out ways of working with the data. He started doing some maps of the earth, but then he had the idea of making some maps of the Internet. Some of the produced maps are truly engaging visualizations.

This particular map represents the Internet Worldmap as seen from AS8843 - Saitis Networks (CH) Switzerland, on July 10th, 2002.
