VISUALIZATION OF MEASURED AND ESTIMATED NETWORK CHARACTERISTICS OF THE INTERNET

Masahito Shiba

Abstract

Information provided by research on the measurement and estimation of network characteristics of the Internet is vast; therefore, it is difficult to understand and analyze it. We developed a system that includes tools to analyze and visualize both measured and estimated network characteristics of the Internet in order to obtain useful information from these characteristics. Our tools can process large amount of data on network characteristics that were preliminarily measured and estimated. The tools use geographic information for analysis and visualization; users can add codes and extend the functions of analysis and visualization. Moreover, users can easily analyze and visualize the network characteristics of the Internet for various purposes. This paper describes the visualization of network characteristics of the Internet by the tools.
