Cyberspace geography visualization


As cyberspace becomes an integral part of our daily life, its mastering becomes harder. To help, cyberspace can be represented by resources arranged in a multidimensional space. With geographical maps to exhibit the topology of this virtual space, people can have a better visual understanding. In this paper, methods focusing on the construction of lower dimension representations of this space are examined and illustrated with the World-Wide Web. It is expected that this work will contribute to addressing issues of navigation in cyberspace and, especially, avoiding the lost-in-cyberspace syndrome.
