The challenge for cartographers is to provide a clear visual explanation of the relationship of people, objects and/or places. The Internet poses its own set of challenges to the would-be mapper: it is location-based but its internal structure is different from what we are used to. The Atlas of Cyberspaces documents a number attempts at mapping the Internet, some more successfully than others. Some maps are more recognizable as maps; others look more like diagrams (the Linuz system, apparently, looks a lot like a black hole). Still, even with something that looks more like a diagram than a map, there is something
that is pleasing to the cartographic eye.

The Atlas covers a wide number of aspects of the Internet. It is an interesting site to view novel approaches (how about the “London Underground” approach?) to mapping the Internet. The only drawback with the site is that many of the maps are already 3 or 4 years old.
