Europe's Largest Airports on Google Maps

Z24 Luchtvaartkaart is a neat mapped based visualisation of European airport data. The map shows the ten largest European airports in three different categories: takeoffs and landings, passenger traffic and cargo traffic.

As well as displaying the largest airports in these categories in 2012 the sidebar contains a link to view the fastest growing airports in each category.

The markers on this Google Map are really well designed and I like the way that they are scaled to represent the data. The map has also been styled to strip out unnecessary features, leaving just the country borders.
