24 Hours of Worldwide Air-Flight
LuciadRIA 3D's Air Traffic Analysis map is a very impressive animated map of 24 hours worth of global air-traffic. The application allows you to watch planes flying around the globe on top of a 2d or 3d map of the world.
The data for all those planes takes a little while to load but it is well worth the wait. Once the map is up and running you can just sit back and watch as thousands of airplanes zip around the world. Alternatively you can take control of the map and zoom-in on your favorite locations, adjust the time of day or select to view just the flights from Luthansa or All Nippon.
One neat touch on this map is the day and night layer. As the animation plays out you can watch as daylight travels around the world.
The data for the Air Traffic Analysis map comes from FlightRadar24 and shows global air traffic from 10 a.m. January 13, 2015 to 10 a.m. January 14, 2015 (GMT).
