About the Project

A peer-to-peer (or P2P) computer network is a network that relies primarily on the computing power and bandwidth of the participants in the network rather than concentrating it in a relatively low number of servers. P2P networks are typically used for connecting nodes via largely ad hoc connections. Such networks are useful for many purposes. Sharing content files (see file sharing) containing audio, video, data or anything in digital format is very common, and realtime data, such as telephony traffic, is also passed using P2P technology.*


P2P to 2D-Space represents totally different aspect - graphical representation of p2p network.  Global map is the resource that is being shared by the application users. Upon joining the application user becomes "responsible" for a part of the global map. Each user has its own "room", that can be "visited" by other application users. Each user is able to go out to the "external world"  and while traveling there, meet another users.
