                  Design of the native Cyberspace Map
                  draft-jilongwang-opsawg-cybersmap-01

Abstract

   This memo discusses the design of the native cyberspace map which is
   stable and flexible to describe cyberspace.  Although we have
   accepted the cyberspace as a parallel new world, we even have not
   defined its basic coordinate system, which means cyberspace have no
   its basic space dimension till now.  The objective of this draft is
   to illustrate the basic design methodology of the native coordinate
   system of cyberspace and show how to design a cyberspace map on this
   basis.

1.  Introduction

   There is a new space created by the Internet, together with computer
   networks, telecommunication networks, termed as cyberspace.  It is an
   interactive domain that includes users, software, processes, the
   information in storage or communication, applications, services .etc.
   Unfortunately, we even have not defined its basic coordinate system
   and even the native map.

   Traditional well known coordinate systems seem feasible to visualize
   and represent cyberspace.  However, both coordinate systems have some
   drawbacks.  Although the geographic coordinate system(GCS) vividly
   shows geographic information of cyberspace in the geographic map, it
   only visualizes a tip of the iceberg of cyberspace and hardly
