And where there is a spatial aspect, there will be maps. [Source: Wired](https://www.wired.com/2015/06/mapping-the-internet/) Good blog post: https://outofscope.bureauofbrightideas.com/a-map-of-the-metaverse/ The Opte Project, created in 2003 by Barrett Lyon, seeks to generate an accurate representation of the breadth of the Internet using visual graphics. The example below is a network map from 2003 (left) next to 2010 (right). ![](https://i.imgur.com/NRAgvIH.jpg) This map was generated by the creator of [Shodan](https://shodan.io) whom collected the data by sending ping requests to every IP address on the internet, and storing the positive responses. ![](https://i.imgur.com/JJmkpgE.jpg) The Internet Map is an impressive visualization of 350,000 websites and how they are linked to each other. Article source: [Verge](https://www.theverge.com/2012/7/30/3198825/internet-map-website-relationship) ![](https://i.imgur.com/2Qh2kmZ.png) > The Internet map is a bi-dimensional presentation of links between websites on the Internet. Every site is a circle on the map, and its size is determined by website traffic, the larger the amount of traffic, the bigger the circle. Users’ switching between websites forms links, and the stronger the link, the closer the websites tend to arrange themselves to each other.

Having then localized, the system then supports various external tracking libraries such as ARKit or ARCore to track the relative position of your device to display AR content around you. ![](https://i.imgur.com/IusQ3bc.jpg) ![](https://i.imgur.com/5qEMdHR.jpg) --- ### Magicverse Website: <https://www.magicleap.com/news/op-ed/magicverse> ![](https://i.imgur.com/8YLBNcL.jpg) ![](https://i.imgur.com/iLx3711.jpg) ![](https://i.imgur.com/yflHMVO.jpg) --- ### Metaverse Markets https://medium.com/building-the-metaverse/market-map-of-the-metaverse-8ae0cde89696 ![](https://i.imgur.com/Kr0RAlU.jpg) --- ### 6DAI Website: <https://www.6d.ai/> Devices using the 6D Reality Platform collectively contribute three-dimensional geometry to the AR Cloud. This builds up a machine readable form of the world’s ground-level three-dimensional data in the cloud, adding new locations that have been meshed and thus can be remembered.
