The so-called dark web is now so big that mapping efforts are afoot. It feels a bit like the web in the 1990s! The creators explain:
The Dark Web Map is a visualization of the structure of Tor's onion services, a.k.a. hidden services, a.k.a. the dark web. The map consist of 6,608 dark web sites crawled during January 2018.
