Internet Atlas Project

CAIDA's Internet Atlas project began in 1999. Originally scoped as a three-year effort, it had extended to five years. This effort involved developing techniques, software, and protocols for mapping the Internet, focusing on Internet topology, performance, workload, and routing data. It also includes assessment of state-of-the-art in this nascent sector.

Funding for the Internet Atlas project ended in 2004. These pages are left for historical and archival purposes.

For a showcase of CAIDA's visualization efforts, see the CAIDA Visualizations page.
