  • Take a guided tour of UK skies

    From NATS;

    "Following the success of our two data visualisations – Europe 24 and North Atlantic Skies – we’ve taken a lot of time to think about where to go next – it’s been a typical case of ‘difficult second album syndrome’.
    Both Europe 24 and North Atlantic Skies were designed to give an overview of the daily complexity and volumes of air traffic across the UK and Europe and to do so in a way that was cinematic and exciting to watch. I think we were able to do that to great effect, but we now want to take you a little deeper.
    We are therefore very excited to publish UK 24 – your guided tour to some of what makes UK aviation work."

    Hope you enjoy these vids (including the 'static' visualisation) etc. The 'North Atlantic Skies' vid shows the North Atlantic Tracks (and more) to stunning effect.


    It gives you some perspective on what it would be like to be an Air Traffic Controller, and the vids look pretty good in full screen. They also demonstrate rather clearly the 'air routes' used for aviation.
