This project is designed to try to determine the Geo Location of nodes on the Internet. The project is split into multiple phases. The first is to test the technique. This requires grabbing many planet lab nodes and sending timing pings between them. The second phase is to find many hosts of known location and using the initial planet lab node set to ping these hosts. The final phase is to actually geo locate unknown hosts. Ping here is a overloaded term which may mean ICMP ECHO, UDP packets or TCP packets.
