AS SEEN BY THE FAA
http://users.design.ucla.edu/~akoblin/work/faa/index.html

The following flight pattern visualizations are the result of
experiments leading to the project Celestial Mechanics by Scott Hessels
and Gabriel Dunne. FAA data was parsed and plotted using the Processing
programming environment. The frames were composited with Adobe After
Effects and/or Maya and the final dome piece was highlighted at
SIGGRAPH 2005 in the NVIDIA Immersive Dome Experience. The animations
were shown at the Japan Media Arts Festival and will be in the
Animation Theater at SIGGRAPH 2006 and the Animation Theater at Ars
Electronica 2006.
