The spatial structures of information in Cyberspace can be mapped in a number of ways that are independent of real-world geographic reference and conventional planar cartography. This paper examines three important research themes concerning the measurement and mapping of Cyberspace, providing references to key literature and further information innovative ways of mapping Cyberspace developed in the field of information visualisation are unfamiliar to many geographers. The A. examines key statistics that can aid to understand the internet and the Web and concludes by reviewing recent work on spatial analysis of internet infrastructure, applying classic geographic techniques for network modelling. - (HPB)
