one of the things you can do with tracepath is map the internet. it's not too hard if you have the patience ... i would reccomend running many in parallel. i did a rough estimate of how long the tools i was using would have taken to run and it was approximately 5100 hours, or about 212 days. i obviouisly did not map the whole internet, i only gave it about a day to get a very complex picture. the small picture above is a thumbnail of the resulting dot directed graph. the blue diamond is me, and the granularity is at the autonomous system level.
