Atlas of Cyberspaces
This is an atlas of maps and graphic representations of the geographies
of the new electronic territories of the Internet, the World-Wide Web
and other emerging Cyberspaces.
These maps of Cyberspaces - cybermaps - help us visualise and comprehend
the new digital landscapes beyond our computer screen, in the wires of
the global communications networks and vast online information
resources. The cybermaps, like maps of the real-world, help us navigate
the new information landscapes, as well being objects of aesthetic
interest. They have been created by 'cyber-explorers' of many different
disciplines, and from all corners of the world.
Some of the maps you will see in the Atlas of Cyberspaces will appear
familiar, using the cartographic conventions of real-world maps,
however, many of the maps are much more abstract representations of
electronic spaces, using new metrics and grids. The atlas comprises
separate pages, covering different types of cybermaps.
