Cloud Map

Info

A tactile atlas of cloud computing's physical infrastructures. About 3000 data center GPS coordinates have been collected online and merged into a continuous surface. This new relief allows identifying most of the main geopolitical actors—at the exception of Russia. The project thus provides a physical index of both network infrastructure and geopolitical tensions.
