Mapped Visualizations Just Grew Up
If you only look at one map today then make sure it is this interactive map exploring the history of 100 years of passenger air travel. The Guardian's In Flight – Interactive Map is an amazing mapped presentation looking at the history of commercial air travel.
The interactive story features an animated map visualizing 24 hours of plane flights around the world and a narrated documentary looking at the birth of commercial flights, the development of international air travel and a look at the potential future for the industry.
The In Flight map was developed for The Guardian by Kiln, a data visualization start-up based in London.
