Plot the route taken by your data around the world. Use GlobalTraceRoute on your Mac OS X computer to trace the path of your internet communications around our planet earth.

GlobalTraceRoute shows your choice of maps of the world and maps the route from your computer to another computer on the internet. Based around the UNIX command “traceroute“ GlobalTraceRoute goes one step further to convert internet addresses into geographical locations.

Built for your OS X 10.7 Lion, 10.6 Snow Leopard, or 10.5 Apple Mac Computer.

It displays the information it collects either in both graphical form and in a table of raw data.

Geographic locations are plotted using the database service from the Cooperative Association for Internet Data Analysis (CAIDA).
