Flight around the world - Geoawesomeness

Awesome mapping project by Geographica a Spanish map design studio. The Flight Routes Around the World is an interactive map that visualises data about the world’s 50 busiest airports by passenger traffic.

For each airport you can visualise the number of routes and their destinations as well as the number of passengers per year. You can also compare two different airports by selecting them from a dropdown list in the top menu.

The map itself is based on CartoDB. The design is simple, clean and it does the job well. The code of the project avaiable on GitHub. The data comes from Wikipedia, and

What can I say. We wish more projects like that!

I'm a professional always thinking outside the box and a self-confessed gadget addict. As a son of a professor of cartography I was surrounded by maps all my life and as a result spatial way of thinking and seeing reality is naturally embedded in who I am.
