Submarine Cable Status Map Experiment

Hello NANOGers,

Today i presented a lighting talk to ask for feedback on the submarine
cable status project. I am still trying to work details on how the
governance and sustainability of this project should be structured. I know
there are more people in the list than those who attend in person to NANOG
in Denver hence I want to share my slides here

There seems to be tremendous amount of interest and support on this
experiment. We are working on getting data (Kmz/Kml) from the operators of
submarine cable systems so we can build our map and display cable status
current demo page is available at

If you have ideas you want to share and help this map experiment become a
reality, please don't hesitate to contact me directly or join our mailing
list. at!forum/subsea

I would like to thank Aaron Hughes, Ognian Mitev, NANOG PC, Telegeography ,
Angola Cables, Alaska Communications and Seaborn Networks for their amazing
support so far.

ps: please feel free to pass this message to other groups / nogs to get the
message to those who are interested.

Thank you!


PS: We may need to rebuild (Validate) the map with KMZs.

If you are authorized and able to share KMZs of the cable systems you
manage, please contact me offlist.
