Route Views

Route Views is a project founded by Advanced Network Technology Center at the University of Oregon to allow Internet users to view global BGP routing information from the perspective of other locations around the internet. Originally created to help Internet Service Providers determine how their network prefixes were viewed by others in order to debug and optimise access to their network, Route Views is now used for a range of other purposes such as academic research.

Route Views servers get their information by peering directly with other BGP routers, typically at large IXPs. The servers can be accessed via telnet or SSH.
