The Color of Spam

In this project, I've visualized the ip-addresses of spammers who abused the comment forms on

Each dot represents an instance of spam and the ip-address of the sender. For color, I used the numbers in the address segments as relative RGB values. Instances of spam are clustered by date, with each circle representing a month of data.

The technology used includes ColdFusion, Mathematica, Java, and Flash AS3.
