Traceroute assignment: where is our porn?

For this assignment I used Aankit and Pedro’s tracejson to convert the txt output from the traceroute to json with lat + lon data.
I looked at several types of sites: pirate sites like and and also porn sites like pornhub.

It was interesting for me to trace either sites that are either illegal or hidden by most people.

Interesting finds:

1. Traceroute: Warning: has multiple addresses; using This is also true for .

2. When looking at the Geo location of some websites, last place we have info of is in Switzerland – 47.000,8.000 .
