World Map of Internet Adresses

World Map of Internet Adresses (cutout)

This visualizations shows the geographic location of 1,139,441,531 ip adresses. The locations are grouped by city, divided into four categories according to the total number of ip adresses belonging to a city. The categories are net-metropoles (more than 10,000,000 IPs), net-capitals (1,000,000 up tp 10,000,000 IPs), net-cities (100,000 up 1,000,000 IPs) and net-villages (fewer than 100,000 IPs). IP adresses that cannot be allocated to a city were left out.

I created this visualization using ActionScript, based on my classes for map projections and polygon maths, which you can download for own usage. The data was extracted from the free GeoLite-City database by MaxMind.
