Flight Path Animation

Full Screen

Using data from and the US Dept of Transportation, this map shows flight routes entering or exiting the United States, randomly selected at each animation timestep with their selection probabilities weighted by the number of passengers that flew that route in December 2015. See this ipython notebook for data wrangling details.

This visualization builds on the Great Arc and Stroke Dash Interpolation blocks by Mike Bostock.
