As part of our ongoing efforts to chart the rise and rise of IPv6, we’ve been looking into the difference between average IPv6 capability per country over a few days in June 2020 versus the most recent similar averages for 2021.
We've been using Google's BigQuery platform for ongoing operational tasks and research questions, and we've got a little more experience under our belts. We're improving the ways we expose public data on the platform.
Google BigQuery is a data warehousing platform with an SQL query interface on top. This is a powerful tool that allows us to rapidly filter, query, and process RIPE Atlas measurement results, improving our ability to explore this dataset. We are now making RIPE Atlas measurement results publicly av…
