Visualization of Airline Transportation Data

Tuesday, I will be in Paris, as a member of the jury on dataviz, organized by the Direction Generale de l’Aviation Civile, during the “assises nationales du transport aérien“.

Dans ce contexte, le Ministère de la transition écologique et solidaire lance un appel à projets pour la conception d’une application open source facilitant la visualisation et le partage des données du transport aérien. Volume de trafic (passagers et mouvements d’avion), retards et émissions aux abords des aéroports sont autant de données recensées par la DGAC, pour élaborer un outil de data-visualisation innovant, interactif et pédagogique au service des professionnels et du grand public.

There were some nice studies based on those data, available from the dedicated website (even if sometime, it can be hard to get a clear understanding, but that’s actually the main challenge with dataviz)

I can also upload some screen shots from some apps that were submited, and there were nice things, such as

or the following one

Some candidates were selected to present their viz to the jury, and then, there will be prices. More to come on Wednesday, probably.
