Infographic: An App That Maps The Web In Real Time | visual data | Scoop.it

Mankind loves making maps, and the world wide web, densely interconnected and phenomenally complex, always makes for a nice visual.

This latest effort, however, is a little different. Called simply Map of the Internet, it’s as informative as it is beautiful.


The map, which takes the form of a free app for Android and iOS, features 22,961 of the Internet’s biggest nodes--not individual websites, but the ISPs, universities, and other places that host them--joined by some 50,000 discrete connections.

Both views are interactive; instead of showing the Internet as a static neon blob, the app lets you explore the neon blob in the round, with all the familiar multitouch gestures.
