Network Tools: Open Visual Traceroute

Open Visual Traceroute  is a networking tool to plot network traffic on a 3D map.

If you're wondering where in the world Techeia hosts its website, for instance, just type in the hostname box and hit Enter. Open Visual Traceroute sends packets to that host, detects every server on the route, renders their IP addresses to geographic locations and plots them on a 3D map.

This visual approach looks good, and is easy to navigate in the 3D map using the mouse.

There's also a table with all the key data: IP address; host name; town/ country/ latitude/ longitude; latency, DNS lookup time and distance from the previous node; etc.

Export options include taking a screenshot, copying data to the clipboard and saving it as a CSV file.
Bonus features start with a Whois option. Hit the button next to any host to find out more about it.

The tools also includes a WinPcap-powered packet sniffer (Open Visual Traceroute installs WinPcap if you don't have it already). Turn this on, captured packets are displayed on the map, and again the table holds all the raw details you need.
