  • 由理查德@福尔诺报道,实时交互的世界的海底电缆数据结构图。你可以放大和缩小地图,点击任何单独电缆上看到它的路线和着陆点和查看其他技术信息。例如白色,称为FA-1,强调跨大西洋电缆有两个降落在美国东海岸(在北部和长岛的南北两侧),分别在英国和法国。可点击放大。




    Forno says:

Greg's Cable Map is an attempt to consolidate all the available information about the undersea communications infrastructure. The initial data was harvested from Wikipedia, and further information was gathered by simply googling and transcribing as much data as possible into a useful format, namely a rich geocoded format. I hope you find the resource useful and any constructive criticism is welcome.

The data is available in ArcGIS .shp file format on request, so long as it's not going to be used for profit.

Via Richard Forno, of Infowarrior, this interactive mapof the world's undersea data-cable architecture. You can zoom the map in and out and click on any individual cable to see its routes and landing points and other technical info. Eg the trans-Atlantic cable highlighted in white, known as FA-1, has two landings on the U.S. East Coast (on the north and south sides of Long Island) and one each in England and France.
