In this example, the MBone links have been color-coded according to the company that owns the network links. The map bottom-right is a view taken from a low angle, close to the surface of the globe off the coast of California. Looking across North America from this angle, the density of looping arcs of varying heights is clearly apparent. Lateral links along the west coast, as well as longer tunnels from the east coast, can be discerned. Certain tunnels are highlighted using a different color and thickness of lines, indicating that they are of a different specification.

In the global and continental maps, network links between cities are shown by lines where their color and thickness encode capacity measured in millions of bits transferred per second (Mbps). The thin purple lines are 45 Mbps (known as T3s) and the range goes up to thick black lines that are the 12-lane superhighways of the Net carrying a massive 2,488 Mbps. The use of the geographic base map provides an important and familiar template for users, illustrating the reach of the network. As such, the maps provide an abstracted picture of UUNET’s network, using a process of generalization to produce relatively neat and ordered maps suitable for marketing purposes.
