Dutch Data Landscape (2018)

Dutch Data Landscape is a detailed overview atlas of data centers the Netherlands made in collaboration with Linda van Houtum. In recent years the Netherlands has become a haven for data centers because of favourable tax breaks received by large companies. We set out to discover what other factors such as climate, infrastructure and cable landing points might contribute to the Netherlands being the ideal landscape for data centers to thrive. An interactive timelapse shows the rapid development of the data center landscape gateway since 1995.
