The Opte Project

During project 3, I was reminded about this project I had heard about in one of my classes about information visualization. This is a project about visualizing how the Internet communicates data and how networks are interconnected. Barrett Lyon used a collection of programs that collectively output an image of the networks’ relationships on the Internet. With the programs, he created an overall map of the Internet. The different colors represent different areas’ internet registry. For example, North America uses ARIN and is blue. The white lines are highly connected networks.
