Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7189)


We introduce DIMES’s geographical Internet PoP-level connectivity maps, created using a structural approach to automatically generate at world scale. We provide preliminary results of the algorithm and discuss the properties of the generated maps as well as their global spread.
