See How Data Moves With This Vintage-Inspired Map of Submarine Cables

By Adam Clark Estes on at

Do you like vintage maps? Do you like the internet? Then you'll love this vintage-inspired world map of the underwater cables that connect the entire planet.

The data-minded folks at TeleGeography just updated their world map. Of course, the submarine cables that span from continent to continent don't just carry internet traffic but also all of the world's communications. And the old fashioned map design—complete with sea monsters—gives the whole situation a nice, fun pirate-y feel. While $250/£170 for the professional wall map is a bit steep, TeleGeorgraphy does offer wallpaper-sized images and a zoomable version of the map for your exploring pleasure.
