What does cyberspace look like?
For thousands of years,people have created maps ofthe world around them – cave paintings,drawings inthe sand,pencil sketches,lavish manuscripts,3-Dmodels and,more recently,satellite images andcomputer-generated simulations.Now,a newgeneration of cartographers is focussing on adifferent realm:cyberspace.Here for the first time is an examination andselection of their maps,gathered together into onecomprehensive source:the
Atlas of Cyberspace 
.Written in an accessible style and illustrated withover 300 full color images,the
Atlas of Cyberspace 
catalogs thirty years’ worth of maps to reveal therich and varied landscapes of cyberspace – a worldoccupied by half a billion users.The Atlas explores the new cartographic andvisualization techniques being employed in themapping of cyberspace,concentrating on thefollowing main areas:
Internet infrastructure and traffic flows
