The Internet Atlas BoF met at RIPE 30 in Stockholm during May 1998.

The BoF consisted of a 80 minute presentation on cartography and the Internet by Carl Malamud, followed by 45 minutes of general discussion on the topic. The BOF looked at several hundred maps from the Internet and from sources as diverse as Marshall Island stick maps and ancient petroglyphs. A three-year strategy was outlined for construction of an Internet Atlas and a variety of short-term efforts were proposed.
