VIDEO: Worldwide air traffic over 24 hours

Share

Click play on the video. Now watch as the world’s aeroplanes cross continents and oceans over a 24-hour period. It’s strangely relaxing in the same way that watching a trail of ants in a garden on a warm summer’s afternoon is relaxing.

One thing that’s worth looking out for – compare Europe at the start of the video to Europe at 0:45 – as you’d expect, the flight volume changes dramatically between day and night.

Seen a similarly fantastic depiction of data? Post it in the comments below. I love stuff like this, so if you’ve got a favourite then I want to see it too.
