Show in this manner the concept of DDOS-ing is easily understood by an audience with limited or no technical background, and is a great example of conveying complex information or data simply.

It also helps web developers spot traffic and usage patterns which might not be spotted when looking at a conventional data table, as this tackles quantity, time and location clearly in one place.
