Tor is the online network which allow people to hide their anonymity in the Internet. So when you want to search the web via the network you connect to one of 5000 entry relays, you are redirected to one of 1000 exit relays and only than you connect to the website. Each request is done via different combination of relays, so in practice your IP is untraceable.
TorFlow is a #geoawesome map that visualises information about each connection between these relays on the Tor network. The first thing I noticed about the map was the number of connections that are made from Europe. You can hardly see through the vivd blue patch in the heart of Europe – A clear indicator of the importance and emphasis placed on online privacy especially in Germany and other EU countries.
The map visualises tor connection information dating back from Sunday, 28th October 2007 and its interesting to see how much the use of Tor has increased over the years.
