'The Internet Map' is a comprehensive and highly visual resource that tracks the surfing habits of people according to their country.

The website is a virtual representation of the sites that are receiving the highest traffic at that given moment in time. It organizes all this data as if every website were a star in the galaxy. A larger circle represents a site with higher traffic than its smaller circle counterparts. Users may zoom in to investigate the less popular links and zoom out to grasp the big picture -- it is no surprise that the biggest circles in Canada are Google, Yahoo.ca, Facebook and YouTube.

An especially interesting quality about The Internet Map is that similarly themed and related sites are found situated closer to each other on the digital schema. The site is a great tool for checking out what's hot or for discovering new places to peruse. Stats for Traffic-Gauging Galaxy Maps Trending: Older & Buzzing
