Today I saw a interesting map on the page of informationarchitects.jp. The WEB Trend Map 2009. This japanese company publishes every year this map with the most important Internet domains and the most important Internet personalities. The nice idea was to map the domains and personalities on a map of the Tokyo subway system.
This year they mapped the 333 most important domains and the 111 most important personalities.
How to read the map:
The weight of a domain is defined over the height,the width and the position of a domain/station. The height describes the sucess of a domain.The width describes the stability of the company. The position on the subway map describes the group where the company/domain belongs to. The biggest crossings are the most important domains.
