a map of the 'black holes' of the World Wide Web, created by the "Reporters without Borders" organization, illustrating the countries that do not provide free access to the Internet information (i.e. Belarus, Birma, China, Cuba, Egypt, Iran, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan & Vietnam).

I wouldn't consider this a "map of internet access" as the green lines don't really represent anything. The green lines appear to be actually misinformation. To be accurate shouldn't they have just put green countries and black countries?

while it's true the green lines don't represent what they seem to, they do make the poster more *interesting*, and illustrate the interconnected relationship most people share. they're not a precise representation of something per se, but they get the point across. I like the poster as it is.
