Web 2.0 Map: “The Data Layer”
The 2011 edition of the Web 2.0 Map showcases the incumbents and upstarts in our network economy, gathered around various territories that represent the Web 2.0’s Points of Control. This year the creators have introduced “The Data Layer”, where for the top companies in the industry they have built “cities of data” which illustrate the relative strengths of each company in eight key segments.
Users can pan and zoom to explore the map, and click the icons to get some insight about each player and their position. They can also add their own city to the Data Layer.
