Mapping Global Internet Connectivity

A world map created by the search engine Shodan displays Internet access across the world. The image graphs the use of devices that are directly connected to the Internet. While it is important to note that “some of the dark spots on the map could be attributed to low population density in those areas,” the map does point to disparities in Internet access world wide. Pamela Engel reporting for the Business Insider explains, the “different colors indicate the density of devices – blue indicates fewer devices and red indicates more devices at a given location”.
