A Typical Day in the North Atlantic Skies – [TIME-LAPSE]

The UK air traffic control firm (NATS) have crunched their data on transatlantic flights to produce a stunning visualisation of the “North Atlantic Skies”. The animation covers a typical summer’s day in 2013.

Some statistics from NATS blog post:

  • On a typical July day there are around 30,000 flights across European airspace
  • Approximately a quarter fly within UK controlled airspace
  • The total distance flown by these aircraft is 25 million nautical miles. That’s 998 times around the Earth, or 104 trips to the Moon
  • On 21 June, 5,675 aircraft departed or arrived from UK airports, of which 2,295 departed from or arrived at Gatwick (894) or Heathrow (1,401)
  • 1,532 were overflights
  • The video is 1440x faster than real time

2011 in Photographs – [VISUALIZATION]

Tripso have created a short animation of photographs taken across the world over a 12 month period. The movie shows a world map in which pixels light up according to the relative amount of pictures taken. Some tweaking had to be made however, due to their observation that:

There are more pictures taken in the city of Paris alone on one day that in all of Africa in a year so we corrected for the average.


The original article on the animation highlights more information on a series of snapshots describing some interesting trends and anomalies.
