under the sea…

A while back, I did a post about the global undersea communications network which forms the underpinning of the global Internet.  Here’s a great way to get an idea of how your data gets from point A to point B:

Greg’s Cable Map is an attempt to consolidate all the available information about the undersea communications infrastructure. The initial data was harvested from Wikipedia, and further information was gathere by simply googling and transcribing as much data as possible into a useful format, namely a rich geocoded format. I hope you find the resource useful and any constructive criticism is welcome.”
