TeleGeographys Submarine Cable Map has been updated for 2014. The latest edition depicts 285 cable systems that are currently active or due to enter service by 2015.
The map depicts routes of 263 in-service and 22 planned undersea cables. Each country is colored according to how many international submarine cable system links are connected there. Capital cities and the location and direction of 44 cable vessels (as of December 6, 2013) are also provided.
