Hi Nick, This is indeed interesting stuff, and visualising traceroutes to a single point is something that is definitely on the agenda for Atlas. Your comment about IP vs AS-level traceroute is very true; multiple IP traceroutes in the same graph becomes a total mess very quickly. For AS-level traceroutes one could think about something BGPlay-like (http://bgplay.routeviews.org/). For traceroutes to 128.0/16 we're looking into last-reachable AS at the moment. Again: watch this space! :)
