flight patterns

We selected 10 random days in 2018 and downloaded the global aircraft transponder data from ADS-B Exchange.

Based on the data quality we selected 37 airports, extracted the 2000 best flight routes above these airports and converted them to binary files.

The web folder contains all JavaScript code to visualize these flight routes with WebGL (three.js).

build contains a small build script to prepare and deploy the web application.

You can play around with the data at
