geography of top-level domains

We’ve just published a new map over at the Information Geographies project. This one draws on some of Matt Zook’s research into the geography of domain names. The map offers a detailed overview of one-facet of the geography of content production.

Some results are unsurprising (for instance the low scores in many countries that have low numbers of internet users). However, other unexpected patterns also reveal themselves (such as the relatively low numbers of domains in many Asian countries).

For a more detailed description of results take a look at the discussion on the map’s Internet Geography home.
