Abstract

The A. utilises spatial analysis techniques and geographical information systems technologies to explore the structure of the World Wide Web in terms of node connectivity ; he investigates the number of homepages and the reciprocal hyperlinks between 180 major global Internet domains. The hyperlink structure of the Web is treated as a network and a virtual distance between these domains is calculated using a shortest path methodology from which the mini-sum distance of all the sites is determined.The results are presented using a celestial map style of visualisation. - (HB)
