Hello,  longtime lurker here,  an acquaintance is looking for lat/long
data and I thought this group might not object to this request.  (if
you do, it's my fault, not that of Anselm).

Subject: [Geowanking] model of the internet - need data

Hi folks,

I'm looking for a map of the Internet. A friend wants to project this
onto a spinny globe. I've found several pictoral representations but
I'm looking a raw data-set that geographically locates major routers
and servers. In an ideal world I'd get a database that indicates { ip
address, amount of traffic, longitude, latitude, connected to other ip
addresses } and then I could draw my own picture. Databases I have
seen do not include longitude and latitude which I something I would
need. Any leads?

I suppose even just given IP addresses I could guess longitude and
latitude location... which wouldn't be ideal but perhaps would be
acceptable.

Here's what I've seen so far,

  http://www.opte.org/  -> I'll try reach out to these folks since
they seem to have the best data and are nearby.

Thanks for any input!
