Changes at the AREDN Website

The AREDN website has recently been freshened behind the scenes!

  • There's a new download server.  It's faster and now supports https and rsync 

  • The AREDN legacy map has been supplemented with a new interactive map called the AREDN World Map..   Since it's aware of the supernode network, you can zoom into any area on the map that has a supernode.*

    Features of the World Map:

  • If you click on one of the colored node icons in the upper-right hand corner, you select only those nodes on the map.  For example, if you click on the supernodes icon, you'll see only the supernode network.

  • If you click on a node's icon, you'll get a pop-up window containing all that node's vital data.

  • If you click on a tunnel, you'll get a pop-up window listing the node at each end of the link, the distance between the nodes, and what type of link it is.

  • In the upper-left hand corner is a menu containing:

    • topology - several map background choices

    • data - download database, available in several formats

    • channel - selectively shown any channel

    • phone - a map designed for a handheld device

    • find - will...
