Internet Map Visualizations

The Internet Map – [VISUALIZATION]

Ruslan Ekineev created what he calls “The Internet Map,” an interactive visualization charting 350,000 websites from 196 countries. Each website is represented as a “planet”, with size is determined by traffic, and color by national origin. Ekineev explains:

Every site is a circle on the map, and its size is determined by website traffic, the larger the amount of traffic, the bigger the circle. Users’ switching between websites forms links, and the stronger the link, the closer the websites tend to arrange themselves to each other.

A screengrab from the map below shows Ireland’s Internet Map, with the largest website being google.ie. No surprises there.

  • The darker the shade of red a  country is, the higher the Internet penetration is.
