Mapping 14,000 Satellites
Satellite Map allows you to view the position and tracks of over 14,000 satellites orbiting the Earth. The choice of a 3d globe for this visualization also means that you can view the altitude of each satellite.
The map includes a number of options which enable you to filter the satellites shown on the map by country, type, size, date of launch, orbit period, inclination, apogee and perigee. If you select an individual satellite on the map you can view its path of orbit. You can also view details on the satellite's name, type, launch date and the length of its trajectory.
