Geoinformation in the invisible resources of the internet

Karol Król


The article presents an introduction to deliberations on the type and scope of information, including geoinformation, made available in the Deep Web and Dark Web. It has been shown that geoinformation is present in the Surface Web, although only a small fragment is available in the search results. In the search indexes, the main pages of specialised geoinformation portals, Internet maps and databases are typically made available. Most geoinformation is available on the Deep Web, which requires the use of specialized search engines or exploration of thematic maps. It was also pointed out that geoinformation contradicts the assumptions of the Dark Web. The Tor network, which is the basis of the Dark Web, was created to ensure anonymity and prevent location in space.
