Global Flights Network
This is my first ever R visualization code. I made it for the 2012 Visualizing Global Marathon at the IaaC Barcelona. It has been inspired by Paul Butler's "Visualizing Friendships" famous image. The coordinates of the airports are connected with great circle lines. The brighter paths represent a higher number of routes. Read the full story of this image here:
I also published the R code and the CSV that I used here: http://www.partytonight.co.uk/GFN.zip
