Mapping Internet Traffic

Having accomplished my college goal of having my website be the #1 result in a google search, I mapped the internet traffic for the website as my final project in my cartography course (this was before Google Analytics and Google Maps came about). Spending hours digging through internet traffic logs for my website at the time taught me a great about SEO and the power of social media.

Internet Traffic MappingThe completed project in English.  A Japanese version of this project was also completed from which some of the screenshots below were taken.
