Today, I’m excited to share that we have officially launched our Map of the Internet app, which provides a stunning 3D visualization of the Internet and all of its autonomous systems worldwide, as well as how they are connected. In 2011, we took the first step in developing this visualization with the debut of our Map of the Internet infographic poster.

Driven by our continued passion for all things having to do with networking, we designed this app to further bring to life what the Internet looks like – and how the various autonomous components interact to connect the world.

Map Of Online Communities: 2010 vs. 2007 (PICTURES)

The latest edition, called the Updated Map of Online Communities, reflects (among other information) data from spring and summer 2010.

This updated map uses size to represent total social activity in a community--that is, how much talking, playing, sharing, or other socializing happens there. " The 2010 estimates "are based on the bet numbers I could find, but involved a great deal of guesswork, statistical inference, random sampling, nonrandom sample, a 20,000 cell spreadsheet, emailing, cajoling, tea-leaf reading, goat sacrifices, and gut instinct (i.e. making things up)," Munroe explains.

Indeed, seismic shifts have occurred among social networks since 2007. Via XKCD. Find out where you are on the Cyberthreat map / Узнай, где сейчас кипит кибервойна. PageAccueil. Web ranks & stats.

We Have No Maps of The Web. We dream the internet to be a great public meeting place where all the world’s cultures interact and learn from one another, but it is far less than that.

We Have No Maps of The Web

We are separated from ourselves by language, culture and the normal tendency to seek out only what we already know. In reality the net is cliquish and insular. We each live in our own little corner, only dimly aware of the world of information just outside. In this the internet is no different from normal human life, where most people still die within a few kilometers of their birthplace. Nonetheless, we all know that there is something else out there: we have maps of the world. I have met people who have never seen a world map. Online, we are all that man. We can remedy this.

Hundreds of thousands of folks came to check it out, and the average engagement time was north of six minutes per visitor. It was a really fun way to make the conference theme come to life, and given the work that went into its creation, we thought it’d be a shame to retire it simply because Web 2 has moved on to a new theme.

The Opte Project

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).

In the past few weeks I’ve been talking to scores of interesting people, including CEOs of data-driven start ups (TrialPay and Corda, for example), academics in the public dataspace, policy folks, and VCs. Along the way I’ve solidified my thinking about how best to visualize the “data layer” we’ll be adding to the map, and I wanted to bounce it off all of you. So here, in my best narrative voice, is what I’m thinking.
