GTrace uses a combination of methods to either determine or guess at the physical location of a node in the traceroute path. It is flexible enough to support addition of new databases, heuristics to map IP addresses to physical location and maps.
For additional information, please refer to the section entitled "Usage Notes" on the menubar to the left.
-Flexible and extensible techniques determine the locations of nodes along the path
-Multithreaded architecture allows locations for multiple hops to be determined in parallel
-Validates location information, eliminating data judged incorrect
-Indicates the method for determining geographic mapping and level of trust in results
-Links to current whois information, for nodes along the path
-View routes traced via third-party traceroute servers
-Allows user to zoom into various regions of the maps (Maps courtesy of -visualroute.com)
-Enables users to maintain trace archives
-Supports the addition of new maps and non-geographical network diagrams
-Uses NetGeo service for mapping IP addresses to location
