So This is What the Internet Looks Like

Peer 1 Hosting has released free mobile apps for Android and iPhone that map the Internet.

Via Peer 1:

Users can view Internet service providers (ISPs), Internet exchange points, universities and other organizations through two view options – Globe and Network. The app also allows users to generate a trace route between where they are located to a destination node, search for where popular companies and domains are, as well as identify their current location on the map.

Similar to the poster, the app’s timeline is rooted in real data that uses timeline visualization to display 22,961 autonomous system nodes joined by 50,519 connections based on Internet topology from our partner in this project, CAIDA. We were also able to project what the Internet will look like in 2020 by using an algorithm based on current data, as well as predictions for the growth of the hosting industry by various independent research agencies.

The iPhone app is here (iTunes). The Android app is here (Google Play).
