Adding to my collection of network maps, today I have added a page for transatlantic cables. Additional pages for transpacific cables will follow, then perhaps pages for intra-Asia/Australia, Africa and the Mediterranean, and Latin America will hopefully be forthcoming. Now, this list is not meant to supply everything there is to know about these submarine cables, it is just a collection of map links.
There are other interesting and free places on the web where one can find lists of cables, there is even the eyeball series which provides maps and satellite images of the landing stations amongst other things. However I always find there is too much information to wade through on those sites that I'm not looking for, and many times they are out of date. All I want most of the time is a list of links to maps, so I can quickly see who goes where.
Overall, the network maps have been one of the more popular features on this blog. Not everyone is like me in their affinity for looking at and comparing network maps. But according to the visitor logs apparently there are at least a few kindred spirits out there who come and go through them one by one. So for those who do care, please tell me what map collections you would like to see me add or improve:
