As a prelude to our upcoming podcast episode on cybergeography, check out VisitorVille, a web analytics software application that “does not represent website visitors simply as numbers or graphs, but as real people in a real environment. You can monitor your site traffic as if you were people-watching in a big city.” Each building in the ‘city’ represents a page on a website and inside, avatars represent the visitors. It looks pretty cool, and represents a good example of how the data passing over the Internet is being represented using a spatial metaphor – ‘people’ moving through a landscape.
