Opte Internet Maps

There’s an article at NewScientist.com about a new network mapping project called Opte. I had heard about it before, but hadn’t seen any images yet. I’m really into mapping projects like this. They’re interesting both for the theory and implementation detail that goes into the mapping software, and because they make pretty pictures. I have the Peacock Maps up on the walls of my home office, and my coffee book table is the Atlas of Cyberspace.
