People travel not just more frequently, but increasingly far and quickly. Mapping the connections between all the airports worldwide is a fascinating network visualization exercise.A network, in its very essence, is already a map. And the global transportation maps that represent the flight connections rarely make this network intelligible: on a world map, Europe is often a very dense area where it’s almost impossible to distinguish the dots/airports. Ultimately, these maps (sometimes very beautiful objects), do not represent the data itself, but some idea of the complexity and quantity. This post (which may be followed by further experimentations in this area) is an attempt to make explicit the network behind air transport.

About / Contact – CityGeographics: urban form, dynamics and sustainability. My name’s Duncan Smith, and I’m a researcher specialising in urban geography, GIS, visualisation, city modelling and sustainable travel (research publications here). I’m employed as a teaching fellow at Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, University College London. CASA is a multi-disciplinary centre including city research, modelling and smart city applications. Before this current post, I also completed my PhD at CASA supervised by Prof Mike Batty and Dr Andy Hudson-Smith.

The PhD investigated the changing physical and economic structure of the London region, and its relationship with urban sustainability (read more here). In addition to UCL, I have also worked for LSE Cities, an international urban research centre at London School of Economics, the Greater London Authority, and in transportation research consultancy. City Geographics showcases current projects, publications and research ideas related to urban form, dynamics and sustainability.
