They describe it best:
The intention for this project was to make sound visible. As there is
already a variety of ways in which sounds can be seen (equalizers, sub-titles,
etc.), my aim was to produce a device where that representation of sound would
be a physical one. I therefore used the sewing machine as the basis for the
project as I feel it is synonymous with industry, and making physical
products. Due to limitations in my computer programming skills this model of a
stereo/sewing machine is a prototype of how I imagined the actual product

They've made another. love the circles. and connecting lines.
TeleGeography‘s new Global Internet Map draws upon our annual Global Internet Geography research to provide a unique view of the international Internet networks that link the globe.
The map‘s global projection traces the intercontinental links between the countries of Europe, Asia, North and Latin America, and Africa. Regional close-ups provide insight into key routes within each region. Nine accompanying figures and tables present valuable data on Internet bandwidth by country, regional and global Internet capacity growth, backbone providers, traffic by application, wholesale pricing, and broadband user growth.

I think this was based on GPS but had beautiful colours and layering done recording geographical data over a year. There are others at the flickr link that cover the world and different areas. I particularly like this one.
OpenStreetMap is a free editable map of the whole world. It is made by people like you.
OpenStreetMap allows you to view, edit and use geographical data in a collaborative way from anywhere on Earth.
