UK 24 on Vimeo
"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.
