Very nice. But:

1) http://www.caida.org/analysis/geopolitical/bgp2country/data/source_add_pre_as.txt

ZA has the 3rd highest prefix count at 2700. Why does South Africa have such a high prefix count?

2) 4th place is "??". Can you eloborate on that line?

Thanks,
Hank





one of caida's elves (brad) did a cool
visualization of demographic measures of
Internet resources, stratified by continent with
substratification by country (with help of
CIA factbook, RouteViews, and NetGeo).

    http://www.caida.org/analysis/geopolitical/bgp2country/

    measures: geographic area, human population, GDP, phones-in-use,
    ASes, ISPs, prefixes, addresses....


nothing overwhelmingly surprising here
but compelling nonetheless
(yes, it turns out data can be both)
