Data visualization tracking commercial airplanes


#1

Thank you to everyone who shares ideas in this forum – I have learned so much from all of you!

To explain visualization of data, I showed my students two things:

  1. A graph of the planes in the air in real time (got into a discussion about safety with so much going on!)

  2. A graph of the planes in the air on Wednesday, Nov 21, 2018 (busiest travel day of the year in the US)

  3. A graph (actually a video of graphs) of flights in the air on September 11, 2001 as the events of 9/11 progressed
