Designer Martin Vargic updated version of his Map of the Internet 2.0 . Related sites are grouped together on the same continent. The sizes of the websites on the map are scaled relative to their number of visitors.
“Second version of our flagship project, the Map of the Internet.
This conceptual work of cartography treats major internet sites and enterprises such as Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, HP, and Apple like sovereign states, on a classic map of the world. To explain the dominance and relationships of these entities, they were all given a visual hierarchy that gives prominent treatment to companies with the most users (or sites with the most visitors), surrounding them with smaller countries representing related websites and services.
This poster includes one full map of the internet, 4 minimaps showcasing NSA surveillance, most used social networks, most used internet browser, and worldwide internet penetration, list of Alexa Top 500 websites, quick timeline of the Internet History, top software companies and much more!
The map includes more than 250 separate websites/enterprises as sovereign states, and more than 2000 separate labels.”
