Mapping the density of cyberscapes

I just uploaded another new post to Floatingsheep. This time, the goal was to measure the total number of placemarks (kml files) in every country by using a wildcard search at 260,000 points. The general pattern confirms to other measures of information density, with highly uneven distributions and much of the world left off the map. But there are still some unexpected findings: most notably the highly visible position of China. Head over to Floatingsheep for the full post.
