Original Abstract

Lately, more and more network applications appear to require an accurate knowledge of the Internet station positions in order to operate properly. A typical example is the requirement from the web server owners to be able to find out their websites visitors geographical position more accurately, than the national level, the reason for it being ie automated language recognition. Thus, many of geolocation algorithms are being developed. Most of them are based on RTT (round-trip-time) values measurement, which is then mapped onto geographical distances. This paper deals with the dependence of RTT on the geographic distance. All the measurements needed for dependence determination took place in a dynamically growing network, PlanetLab, which tries to simulate real Internet environment. The result of this work is a set of RTT values
