No. Visualizing AS paths, as such, is not planned within the scope of my 
thesis :)

However, I'm really interested in getting an accurate snapshot of the 
current Internet's AS-level topology. The topology-related data 
ThousandEyes collects would fit my needs perfectly. If anyone may be 
able to provide similar data for academic research purposes I would 
really appreciate receiving a mail.

Best regards,

Lars
