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.
