|Britain From Above S01E01
There’s a great new series on the BBC in the UK: Britain From Above, that shows how various things look from a high perspective, using very interesting visualization techniques.
One of the most interesting (for me) was an episode that showed all the air traffic in UK airspace in a 24 hour period. That involved mapping the positions of 7,500 aircraft, showing how they crisscross the UK:
This is just part of them, captured midway through the day. But it’s interesting to see the width of the paths they fly along - particulalrly those that fly over London to Manchester and Scotland. It’s also very interesting to see the area where paths cross. These would very obviously give rise to the to contrail “grids” that some people feel are so suspicious.
