Flights Visualization

This is an interactive map-based visualization of the domestic routes flown by every commercial aircraft in the U.S. and their on-time performance, presented one plane at a time. Originally written for my Data Visualization class (Carleton College CS314, Spring 2017), it makes use of the excellent d3 library and the Bureau of Transportation Statistics' airline on-time performance dataset.

Live demo

Installation

If you're interested in running this on your own computer, the first thing you'll have to do is download a copy of the latest on-time performance dataset:

pip install requests beautifulsoup4 pandas
python3 get-data.py

Now, start up a web server and navigate to localhost:8000 in your browser.

php -S localhost:8000
You can’t perform that action at this time.
