Improved map of the internet




One could improve the map of the internet by having it be a two dimensional embedding of the link distance graph, and then making a zooming interface like Google maps. At some scale, each pixel would be a separate web page. That would make a 30 gigapixel image: 200 feet square at typical screen resolution. Those pages are associated with around a hundred million web sites.
