Visualizing the Internet

We were looking for ways to show students visually how the Internet works.

1. http://www.caida.org/publications/animations/active_monitoring/traceroute.mpg

Nice video showing technical details of how the Internet works.

2.
http://www.caida.org/tools/visualization/gtrace/

Free app to visualize traceroutes.

3. http://www.cybergeography.org/atlas/routes.html

Info on tracing paths through the Internet

4. http://www.mapulator.com

This looks very cool but it doesn’t do the mapping part like it promises.

5

For mapping e-mail routes. Isn’t very accurate!
