Useless junk

This app simply combines a traceroute with a global map, which is just fine, but completely misses the point of having this information by using it incorrectly. All it really does is draw a line between (apparently) the capital cities of the two endpoints. So if you are in the U.S. Chicago reaching a site in Cebu, the starting point is Washington D.C., not Chicago. Along the way, it correctly identifies cities in the traceroute, such as Louisville, KY, but it does not draw the line through it (although it sometimes zigzags around the US for no apparent reason). Nor does it show the correct route that the data takes, such as through the high-capacity line going to Tokyo. No, it actually draws a straight line across the remote parts of the Pacific Ocean, straight to the capital of Philippines, where no such path exists (and neither does the desitination host). It uses straight lines on a simple Mercator map to display this incorrect path, making it even more incorrect. To make matters worse, the map is zoomable (sluggishly) but only over the middle of the graphic. You can't drag it around when parts of it go off-screen. Not only is this tool incorrect, it's also neither well designed nor implemented.
