Virtually Nao: Our Route So Far

Below you can see an interactive map of our progress. This map shows the flow of Internet data between the locations that the Nao Victoria originally laid anchor at approximately 486 years ago. We’ll be updating this as Virtually Nao makes its way around the globe on our digital expedition, so please keep checking in.

Anchors represent the locations from the original route of the Nao Victoria. Pins represent the deviations of Internet data. Click on the lines to see how far and how fast the data has travelled.

Virtually Nao has successfully digitally circumnavigated the world!

The journey took a total of 9.353 seconds to travel by Internet.
The project took 74 days to acquire the data from volunteers across the globe. That’s 6 393 600 seconds.
The project had help from 12 volunteers.
The volunteers were from 10 different locations, 7 different countries and 5 different continents.
The flow of Internet data crossed all of the continents except for Antarctica. It travelled through 21 different countries, stopping in 35 different locations, often revisiting the same location more than once.

Thank you to all of the volunteers who made this project possible. To see the ‘crew’ behind the Virtually Nao project, click here. To the many others who contacted me offering to help, thank you.
