Telegeography's Submarine Cable Map Now Lets You Link to Specific Cables or Landing Points

Dan York

TeleGeography's Submarine Cable Map – A link listing of all the Djibouti cables.Want to easily show people where a specific submarine cable goes? Or what cables terminate in a particular location? Last year I wrote about Telegeography's cool interactive submarine cable map that can be found at http://www.submarinecablemap.com/ and how useful it is to understand the submarine cable side of Internet infrastructure. In that article I mentioned how great it would be if you could get a link for a particular cable or location that you could pass along to other people. I just discovered this week that sometime between last August and now the folks at Telegeography did add this feature and it is quite useful!

For instance, I am right now in Djibouti for the ION Djibouti conference happening Monday as part of the Africa Internet Summit. A friend pointed out that Djibouti is a major landing point for submarine cables — and so I was delighted to be able to simply get a link listing of all the Djibouti cables to send to some others.

Similarly, if you want to see where a specific cable goes you can get a unique link. For instance, here is the Eastern Africa Submarine System (EASSy). Here is the Arctic Fibre cable.

The beautiful part about this map is that you can just click or tap on any given cable and you can see that cable and where it connects. Click or tap any landing point and you see all the cables that connect at that point — and of course you can zoom in and out throughout your exploration. All in all a very useful tool to help explore this part of the Internet's infrastructure. Kudos to Telegeography for making this site available — and for now enabling us to share links to specific parts of the map.
