In this paper we present the Distributed Overlay
Anycast Table, a structured overlay that implements
application-layer anycast, allowing the discovery of the
closest host that is a member of a given group. One application
is in locality-aware peer-to-peer networks, where
peers need to discover low-latency peers participating in
the distribution of a particular file or stream. The DOAT
makes use of network delay coordinates and a space
filling curve to achieve locality-aware routing across the
overlay, and Bloom filters to aggregate group identifiers.
The solution is designed to optimise both accuracy and
query time, which are essential for real-time applications.
We simulated DOAT using both random and realistic node
distributions. The results show that accuracy is high and
query time is low.

This paper considers the idea of using fractal space filling curves to locate nearby items in an overlay topology.
