Traceroute

Trace the path packets take through the Internet, from MIT's servers to any website.

Uses traceroute to fetch IP addresses, maps those IP addresses to coordinates using ipinfo.io, and plots those coordinates with the Google Maps API.

Inspired by a class I took in which we made an exhibit about the Internet at the MIT Museum, “Net Works,” in spring 2013.
