Air traffic relaunch: A deja-vu

It was at the 1997 JSM in Anaheim, CA, when I peeked into one of the seminar rooms, and found the continuing presentation of the ASA graphics video library. Although, most of the movies are not really new, they are still very inspiring and interesting to watch.

One of my favorites is Bill Eddy’s air traffic movie, which is now 15 years old.

The vulcano eruption that filled the European skies with ashes and halted essentially all air traffic flying into or out of European airports inspired the visualization by Ito listed on infosthetics.

Todays visualization tools and improved hardware make the new movie far more attractive – but it is essentially the same visualization Bill Eddy showed 15 years ago.
