Here you will find static and dynamic 2D JPG/PNG images and 3D VRML maps of the Internet.
These maps are built off of our database using two different graphing engines: Large Graph Layout (LGL) by Alex Adai and Graphviz by Peter North at AT&T Labs Research. Each graphing engine produces wonderful displays, but they are only as good as the data and graphing language we provide. You can find our test images and some well produced full Internet maps below.
Soon we will release the tools to create these maps on your own. How to view LGL data: You can view these maps with LGL View the LGL Java viwer (it requires JRE >= 1.4.1). VRML : Some of these graphs include VRML wrl files. Testing Maps: To see more detailed history of our maps/graphs click here . Webpages as graphs - an HTML DOM Visualizer Applet.

Movements We Feel Fine is divided into six discrete movements, each illuminating a different aspect of the chosen population.
These movements are represented in the We Feel Fine applet. To navigate between movements in the applet, the viewer should scroll over the heart at the bottom left corner of the applet and click on the desired movement. Madness, the first movement, opens with a wildly swarming mass of around 1,500 particles, emanating from the center of the screen and then careening outwards, bouncing off walls and reacting to the behavior of the mouse.
Each particle represents a single feeling, posted by a single individual. Any particle can be clicked at any time, revealing the sentence and/or photograph inside, along with any information about the sentence's author. The Madness movement, with its network of many tiny colorful particles, was designed to echo the human world. Murmurs, the second movement, presents a highly structured environment in which to view human feelings.
