Greg's Cable Map

With the flurry of underwater fibre cables reaching the African shores, it can be tough keeping up with all of them. While not all of them are operational yet, it is pretty great to think how Africa will finally get out of the dark ages with regards to internet connectivity.
South African developer Greg Mahlknecht built an excellent free resource to quickly check out the current cable situation. Its pretty easy to use – if you want to know where a cable is, just click on “list of cables” on the right, and then click a cable. For example, Seacom. That cable will then appear in white.
Here is Greg’s description:
Greg’s Cable Map is an attempt to consolidate all the available information about the undersea communications infrastructure. The initial data was harvested from Wikipedia, and further information was gathere by simply googling and transcribing as much data as possible into a useful format, namely a rich geocoded format. I hope you find the resource useful and any constructive criticism is welcome.
All in all a very cool little tool.
