Unstructured Flight Patterns

flights


This is a snapshot of a twenty-four hour visualization of flights across (as well as into and out of) the continental United States.

I love the way that you can see night and day sweeping across the country. It also astonishes me that so many flights are in the air at the same time. Once again I'm reminded of the fact that we live in a Golden age.

Very cool! Where do you find such neat stuff? This image reminds me of a multi-colored bagworm nest (Thyridopteryx ephemeraeformis). Nasty creatures. Flamethrowers work well on them, but aren't too healthy for the trees.
