In case you’ve ever wondered just how big the Internet really is, there is a website that can give you a clue. The Internet Map website was created by Ruslan Enikeev and displays 350,000 websites. The websites are connected to a Google Maps index and displays pertinent information when clicked.
Ruslan’s explanation on how he created The Internet Map: “So this is my application. It is written in C# language and uses Microsoft .net platform for Windows. The key feature of the program is performance. Mathematically speaking we have graph layout problem and it has enormous computational complexity for big graphs. Also the algorithm becomes very sensitive on a large scale and it’s very difficult to get proper result.”
It’s quite stunning to click and move around the Internet universe in a fun and graphic way.
