Mapping Google Access Data from (suit)men

Posted to Maps  |  Nathan Yau

There’s a nice real-time (?) map on (suit)men Entertainment. Click the black rectangle on the bottom left-hand corner to see the entire map. Supposedly the map is powered by Google, so I want to say it’s showing search data or something of that sort. To be honest though, I have no clue.

Whenever a number pops up, there’s a line that connects some country to Japan (the site’s origin), so I’m guessing they’re mapping something like accesses to the (suit)men site from whatever country. Oh well, no matter. Look how pretty. It’s entertainment, and it managed to entertain me for a good few minutes (which says alot with my short attention span :). Does anyone know what they’re showing?
