The Cable Map Guy
TeleGeography's Submarine Cable Map is a real thing of beauty.
The map depicts 188 active and planned submarine cable systems and their landing stations around the world. Both the cables and their landing points on the map are interactive. Clicking a cable provides access to data about the cable, including the cable’s name, ready-for-service (RFS) date, length, owners, website, and landing points. Clicking a landing point reveals a list of all submarine cables landing at that station.
The map makes great use of Google Map styles and custom info windows to create a map that is both functional and great to look at.
